Visioneer 7800 Tag That Photo Scanner review at PCMag

THE BOTTOM LINE

The Visioneer 7800 scans photos and text well, and the bundled Tag That Photo software does a great job of facial recognition and archiving, though you’ll have to pay an annual fee to use it after the first year.

MSRP $99.99

PROS

    • Good photo scanning
    • Strong OCR accuracy
    • Bundled with one-year subscription to photo management software
    • Reasonably fast scanning and saving

CONS

    • Photo software subscription has steep annual renewal price

Visioneer’s 7800 Tag That Photo Scanner ($99.99) is an entry-level photo scanner and software bundle designed primarily for family and home-based offices with infrequent and low-volume scanning needs, especially those who mostly scan photos and graphics. A direct competitor with the Editors’ Choice Canon CanoScan LiDE 400 ($89.99), the LiDE 300 ($69.99), and a few other entry-level models, the 7800 stands out with a one-year subscription to Tag That Photo, a face recognition, tagging, and database application for scanning and cataloging your images of people. The 7800 reproduces photos, graphics, and text documents accurately and attractively, as one would expect from a Visioneer scanner, though its top resolution is significantly lower than those of several competing models. Despite some limitations, the Visioneer 7800 is a highly capable flatbed scanner well worth consideration for digitizing your family’s photos, graphics, and short business documents.
