Brother is a puzzle to us. They offer literally hundreds of MFC models that include scanning capability, many have document feeders - relatively slow but functional and reliable. These devices are typically substantially less expensive than dedicated document scanners. They could be the brand of choice for low-volume TWAIN document scanning, which is a potential need in... let's see... nearly every office and household in the US.
But no. So far, we have not encountered a Brother scanner that we can recommend for TWAIN scanning. They either lack native TWAIN drivers completely, relying on the buggy Microsoft WIA-TWAIN bridge, or - they have buggy native TWAIN drivers. The classic Brother TWAIN bug: When asked to scan a stack of pages without showing its own UI the Brother cheerfully does so - and then delivers only the first (or last) page to the application.
We recommend using/supporting Brother scanners:
