Panasonic KV-S1026C-MKII : William Harrel – Journalist

Review of the Panasonic KV-S1026C-MKII at PCMag

    • PROS

      Great optical character recognition (OCR) accuracy. Comprehensive software bundle. Faster than manufacturer’s ratings when scanning and saving to image and searchable PDF. Three-year warranty.

    • CONS

      Pricey. No network connectivity. Slower than competitors that cost half as much. Neat Cloud Service expires after three years.

BOTTOM LINE

  • The Panasonic KV-S1026C-MKII is a relatively fast and highly accurate entry-level desktop document scanner; all it really needs is a lower price.

An update to the Panasonic KV-S1026C we reviewed back in 2013, the Panasonic KV-S1026C-MKII ($600.99) is not only significantly faster than its predecessor, but it’s more accurate and comes with a better software bundle. This latest iteration really is a fine entry-level desktop sheet-feed document scanner, but it’s up against some stiff, less-costly competition, such as the Editors’ Choice Brother ADS-2700W Wireless High-Speed Desktop Document Scanner. The KV-S1026C-MKII is designed for use in home-based and small or micro offices or workgroups, or even as a personal desktop document scanner. While it is unquestionably well-suited for these environments, it simply costs too much to take its place among our top-choice candidates.
