The IRIScan Desk 5 Pro claimed our Editors’ Choice award as the best overhead scanner in September 2019. Today the Canon subsidiary offers three version 6 models, the most powerful and versatile being the Desk 6 Business—it boasts the most memory and features, the largest scanning area, and naturally the highest price ($449). It’s a lot more machine than the Desk 5 Pro was, and if you can stand its cost, it’s a superlative overhead scanner for use in corporate, educational, and enterprise settings. The Desk 6 Business easily succeeds its predecessor as our Editors’ Choice favorite.
