    Review of the Xerox DocuMate 6440 at PCMagLow 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.


    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.

But we haven’t tested many with ratings in this range that are comparable in price to the Xerox DocuMate 6440 ($495) [amazon_link asins=’B01HJZ1QT2′ template=’CopyOf-PriceLink’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’48ee9f3b-c576-11e7-9f56-57b5353d6c43′]. 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 accurately, making it our latest top pick for moderate-to-high-volume scanning in a small office or workgroup.Read the entire review at PCMag
