Not as good as their copiers
I had a remote office that needed the ability to scan documents so after much searching I ordered this device. We have 3 Xerox copiers that also have the scan-to-email functionality, so I thought it would be easy to set up.
Problem is, they seem to use a completely different type of firmware on this device than they do on their copy machines. I was able to give it an SMTP server to send its emails to and was able to hook up a Kyocera printer via a USB cable to use it as a poor man's copier, but wasn't able to get much else working.
The most disappointing things was LDAP search. Our other copiers are able search the Active Directory (same directory used by Outlook/Exchange) for a person's email address after they type in a few characters of their name rather than making them type the entire email address. This really comes in handy when you have multiple people using the copier. It's also convenient not having to load new users explicitly into the copier. The only saving grace here is that the scanner remembers the last few typed email addresses so the few people that use this particular scanner don't have to constantly type their full email address.
