Raven Compact Document Scanner Review
by William harrel – May 5, 2022

We all know there’s no such thing as the paperless office, but there’s plenty of paper in the outside world as well. That’s why the crowded category of document scanners includes so many portable models like the $198.85 Raven Compact Document Scanner seen here. The Raven Compact is a well-equipped, accurate device for use at front desks and in small offices and workgroups, as well as on the road, but it lacks some of the features of our 2017 Editors’ Choice award winner, the Epson WorkForce ES-300W—including a battery for remote, unplugged operation.
