A predecessor to the Editors’ Choice award-winning Raven Pro Document Scanner reviewed here in October 2021, the $439.85 Raven Original Document Scanner (2nd Gen) is essentially the same document scanner with lower capacity and speed. This version offers the same 8-inch touch screen and preinstalled scanning interface and document management software as the Raven Pro, but a price roughly $200 lower brings some sacrifices: the Original’s automatic document feeder (ADF) holds only half as many pages, its daily duty cycle is 4,000 versus 6,000 pages, and its scanning speed rating is one-third slower. Otherwise, the Original and Pro scanners are similar, making the former a less robust but still capable entry-level solution.
