HP ScanJet Pro 3600 f1 Review at PCMag

THE BOTTOM LINE

HP’s ScanJet Pro 3600 f1 is a speedy combination sheetfed/flatbed document scanner that’s ideal for busy small and home offices.

MSRP $599.00

PROS
    • Compact design
    • Relatively fast, highly accurate OCR
    • Excellent HP Scan Pro interface
    • Decent document archiving
    • Scans to flash and other USB drives with no PC required
CONS
    • Somewhat expensive
    • No Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or device support

A medium-volume document scanner that’s a combination of a sheetfed and a flatbed, HP’s $599 ScanJet Pro 3600 f1 replaces the model 3500 f1 that we reviewed way back in early 2016. Scanning hardware and software have both matured a lot since then, and the new ScanJet Pro is faster, leaner, and more reliable, and it converts pages to editable text in a fraction of the time of its predecessor. The 3600 f1 also boasts an automatic document feeder (ADF) that holds almost twice as many pages as our current entry-level Editors’ Choice winner, the Xerox Duplex Combo Scanner. We’d like it even more at a somewhat lower price, but the ScanJet Pro 3600 f1 is a more-than-capable document manager for busy small offices and workgroups, earning our Editors’ Choice award honors for midrange combination sheetfed/flatbed document scanners.
