The prices for most high-tech hardware goes down, not up, over the years, but some niche gear can buck that trend and still stay competitive. Take Canon’s imageFormula R40 Office Document Scanner Receipt Edition: At $399, it’s $130 more than the base-model imageFormula R40 we reviewed in March 2020.
