Editors' Choice

  • PROS

    Low price. High daily duty cycle for price. Excellent OCR accuracy. Includes PDF creation and editing and document management software. Large ADF for price.

  • CONS

    Much slower than Xerox’s ratings. Lag time between scanning and saving to searchable PDF is significant.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    For well under the cost of several similarly rated document scanners, the Xerox DocuMate 6440 scans more than fast enough for the price and it’s highly accurate.

Review of the Xerox DocuMate 6440 at PCMagWe’ve reviewed several sheet-feed document scanners with speed ratings above 50 pages per minute (ppm) when scanning in one-sided mode, and over 100 images per minute (ipm) in two-sided mode. But we haven’t tested many with ratings in this range that are comparable in price to the Xerox DocuMate 6440 ($495). In testing, it, like several other similarly rated document scanners, it didn’t come close to Xerox’s published ratings, especially when scanning to searchable PDF. But it does outpace similarly priced models and it scans quite acurately, making it our latest top pick for moderate-to-high-volume scanning in a small office or workgroup.

Review of the HP ScanJet Pro 3000 s3 Sheet-Feed Scanner at PCMagThe HP ScanJet Pro 3000 s3 Sheet-Feed Scanner ($429.99) is a good value as a moderately priced desktop document scanner. An upgrade in capacity and features from the entry-level HP ScanJet Pro 2000 we reviewed recently, it is faster than the Editors’ Choice Canon imageFormula DR-C225 and the Brother ImageCenter ADS-2000e. The ScanJet 3000 includes a well-rounded software bundle, and, in testing, the hardware performed well. Optical character recognition (OCR) accuracy is about average, and speed is excellent. All this makes the ScanJet 3000 our new Editors’ Choice personal desktop document scanner, though it’s also good for a small or micro office or workgroup.
