Review of the Visioneer Patriot P15 portable document scanner at PCMag

  • PROS

    Good OCR accuracy. Reasonably fast overall scanning. Robust software bundle. High duty cycle.

  • CONS

    Slower than competitors at saving to searchable PDF. Documents are rearranged during output. Slightly overpriced based on feature set.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    The Visioneer Patriot P15 scans quickly and accurately overall, and it has a huge daily duty cycle for a portable scanner, but comparable models offer better value.

The Visioneer Patriot P15 ($339.99) is designed for business professionals who need to scan multipage documents on the road. It’s light and compact, accurate, and reasonably fast, but comes up short against the Editors’ Choice Epson WorkForce ES-300W’s higher-end feature set, which includes support for wireless networking and a battery for cable-free operation. The P15 is a bit overpriced compared with the ES-300W and its additional perks, but it’s still a fine little portable scanner, especially if you can find it on sale or Visioneer drops the price.
