Pros Inexpensive, fairly simple to operate, a significant improvement over flatbed modelsFast, high-quality scans, easy operation, touch screen interfaceHigh quality scans, easy operation, good text recognitionHigh quality scans, easy to use softwareInexpensive, high quality scans, great text recognition
Cons Poor text recognition, not great for long (10+ page) documentsExpensive, Character recognition not perfectSlower than other high end modelsRelatively slow, 10-page document feeder feels limitingSlow and laborious for multi-page documents
Bottom Line Great for small documents and those that need a portable scanner, but definitely not cut out for long documentsThe best option for high volume scanning jobs that demand high qualityA solid, high end model that doesn’t cost quite as much as most other high end optionsCan handle a lot of short documents quite well, but the lack of a paper tray and large document feeder makes it less suited for long documentsSo cheap you can just give it a try without much risk, and packs a lot of power into a phone app, but isn’t great for longer documents
