Review of the HP ScanJet Pro 4500 fn1 Network Scanner at PCMag

The flagship in HP’s line of flatbed ScanJet Pro document scanners, the 4500 fn1 Network Scanner ($899) ($694.95 at Amazon) is similar in many ways to the ScanJet Pro 3500 f1 (Check on Amazon at Amazon) Flatbed Scanner. Unlike its less-expensive sibling, though, the 4500 is networkable via both Ethernet and Wi-Fi, scans faster, and has a higher daily duty cycle. It’s also quicker than the Editors’ Choice Canon imageFormula DR-2020U (Check on Amazon at Amazon), as well as the comparably priced Epson WorkForce DS-6500 ($849.00 at Amazon)—especially when saving scans to searchable PDF files. Fast, single-pass scanning and swift saving to a usable file format, as well as built-in networking, easily elevate the ScanJet Pro 4500 to our Editors’ Choice for a flatbed document scanner for low-to-medium-volume scanning in a small office or workgroup.
