• Review of the Kodak ScanMate i1150WN at PCMagPROS

    Robust, easy-to-deploy software. Excellent OCR accuracy. Includes PDF creation and editing and document management software. Supports numerous network and other connectivity modes.

  • CONS

    Somewhat pricy. Slow at saving to searchable PDF.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    The Kodak ScanMate i1150WN is a bit slow for the price, but this scanner comes with numerous network and other connectivity options and terrific software, and OCR accuracy is above average.

The Kodak ScanMate i1150WN ($650) (Out of stock at Amazon) from Kodak Alaris is similar in many ways to its previous iteration, the Kodak ScanMate i1150 ($354.44 at Amazon), except that it supports both wired and wireless networking. It’s not, however, as fast as some network-ready scanners we have reviewed, including the Editors’ Choice Brother ImageCenter ADS-3600W ($829.11 at Amazon) and Epson’s significantly less expensive WorkForce ES-500W Wireless Duplex Document Scanner.($329.99 at Amazon) Even though the i1150WN is not lickety-split, it’s plenty fast enough for many micro office and workgroup environments, and it comes with slick and easy-to-use software, making it a good choice for low-to-moderate network document scanning, especially for use at the front desk in medical and dental offices.
