But compared with the similarly priced Editors’ Choice HP ScanJet Enterprise 7000 s3 Sheet-Feed Scanner [amazon_link asins=’B01M0TLC7X’ template=’CopyOf-PriceLink’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’ea297c74-c7d8-11e7-9e86-43b4b188ca67′], it comes up somewhat short in performance and features. In testing, the PDS-5000 wasn’t quite as fast at saving to searchable PDF, nor as accurate, as the ScanJet, and the Brother model’s software bundle isn’t as well-rounded. The PDS-5000 does have a higher capacity automatic document feeder (ADF), though, and it’s more than quick and accurate enough to make it a serious contender for use in medium-to-heavy scanning environments.
