THE BOTTOM LINE

The reasonably priced Raven Pro Max is a fast, accurate mid- to high-volume desktop document scanner that combines flatbed and sheetfed functionality for peak flexibility.

MSRP $999.85

PROS
    • Snappy scanning and conversion to editable text, with great OCR accuracy
    • Excellent scanning (and decent document-management) software
    • Onboard document-editing and entry-level archiving functionality
    • Handy 8-inch control panel and 100-sheet ADF, plus flexible connectivity
    • Price includes unlimited cloud space
CONS
    • Lacks a dedicated app for mobile devices
    • A detachable flatbed would increase versatility, overall value even more

Ignoring those built into all-in-one printers and the occasional (but not very well-endowed) standalone model such as 2017’s Epson DS-1630 or 2019’s Xerox Duplex Combo Scanner, we haven’t seen many flatbed document scanners lately. (Nearly all, nowadays, are sheetfed designs.) And the flatbeds on the market aren’t updated frequently; HP, for instance, just recently refreshed its family of ScanJet Pro models from early 2016. That makes the Raven Pro Max Document Scanner ($999.85) seen here doubly interesting. A flatbed with the DNA of our recent Editors’ Choice award winner for sheetfeds (the Raven Pro Document Scanner), the Pro Max is much more robust and feature-rich than the lower-end scanners mentioned above. It easily earns its own Editors’ Choice trophy as our favorite midrange to high-volume flatbed document scanner.
