Terrific Speed, Accuracy, and Value with HP’s ScanJet Pro 3000 s3 Sheet-Feed Scanner

The HP ScanJet Pro 3000 s3 Sheet-Feed Scanner ($429.99) is a good value as a moderately priced desktop document scanner. An upgrade in capacity and features from the entry-level HP ScanJet Pro 2000 we reviewed recently, it is faster than the Editors’ Choice Canon imageFormula DR-C225 and the Brother ImageCenter ADS-2000e.

Exceptional Print Quality with Epson’s Expression Home XP-440 Small-in-One Inkjet Printer

Exceptional Print Quality with Epson’s Expression Home XP-440 Small-in-One Inkjet Printer

We remember, about four or five years ago, when the first Epson Small-in-One printers appeared on the market. Then as now, their key selling point was, of course, size: You could buy an all-in-one (AIO) machine with a very small footprint that printed, copied, and scanned, and tuck it on the corner of your desk. The Expression Home Small-in-Ones have been a mainstay for many years, like the Expression... [Read more]

Budget Networking with Epson’s WorkForce ES-500W Wireless Duplex Document Scanner

Budget Networking with Epson’s WorkForce ES-500W Wireless Duplex Document Scanner

We’re seeing an increasing number of network-capable sheet-feed document scanners lately, including the $399.99 Epson WorkForce ES-500W Wireless Duplex Document Scanner we’re reviewing here. But the ES-500W is somewhat different in that it’s not often that we see network functionality on an entry-level scanner like this one. (Epson does offer a non-Wi-Fi version of the ES-500W, the... [Read more]

Accurate and Reasonably Fast Gaming at a Budget Price with Aukey’s KM-C4 Gaming Mouse

Accurate and Reasonably Fast Gaming at a Budget Price with Aukey’s KM-C4 Gaming Mouse

The hype around gaming mice makes it difficult to see the reality for the hyperbole. You can spend $60 or more for industry-standard pointing devices, such as the Razer DeathAdder Elite, or choose less costly alternatives like Logitech’s G602. Yet there’s an even less expensive, highly customizable, lesser-known alternative — $36 Aukey KM-C4 Gaming Mouse, which regularly retails for as little... [Read more]

The EcoTank Remake, Epson’s and Expression ET-2600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer

The EcoTank Remake, Epson’s and Expression ET-2600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer

Here we are a year and a half (or so) after Epson first released its consumer- and small-office-grade EcoTank “supertank” printers in the United States, It’s a product introduction that, if you believe what the Japanese electronics giant tells us, has met with huge success. While we complained for years about inkjet-printer makers selling ink for exorbitant per-page prices (and like to think... [Read more]

Zmodo’s Beam Alert – Wi-Fi Range Extender that also Guards Your Home

Microsoft’s Light and Thin Arc Touch Bluetooth Mouse

Microsoft’s Light and Thin Arc Touch Bluetooth Mouse

While there are plenty of innovative wireless pointing devices available, few are as light, compact, interesting, and mobile as Microsoft’s Arch Touch Bluetooth Mouse. It’s designed primarily as an accessory for the company’s Surface Book PCs (it’s the same light-gray color), but since it’s a standard pointing device, it also works with most laptops or tablets running a recent version of... [Read more]

A high-volume sheet-fed document scanner designed for heavy workloads in medium-to-large offices and workgroups, the $899.99 Brother PDS-5000 High-Speed Color Desktop Scanner is fast and accurate.

A recent addition to the ScanJet family, the ScanJet Pro 2000 s1 Sheet-feed Scanner ($299.99) is a capable low-volume document scanner comparable in capacity and features to the Editors’ Choice Canon imageFormula DR-C225, as well as the adept Brother ADS-2000e.
