Canon’s imageFormula R40 Office Document Scanner ($247) is an entry-level to midrange sheet-fed desktop document scanner designed for use in home-based or small offices and workgroups. Like our recent Editors’ Choice, Fujitsu’s more expensive Image Scanner fi-800R, this affordable desktop digitizer is relatively fast and accurate, and it comes with a well-rounded software bundle that covers most types of business-oriented scanning, including basic document management and business card archiving. Unlike several competitors, such as the Brother ADS-2700W Wireless High-Speed Desktop Document Scanner (another PCMag top pick), however, the Canon’s connectivity is limited to USB, which precludes network and mobile device support. Otherwise, it’s a capable desktop scanner for smaller enterprises.
