Our last document scanner was a down-firing document camera, which was quick and accommodated irregular pages sizes, but which was quite sensitive to ambient light and often had issues with shadows. So, since nearly all of our scanning consists of regular 8.5” x 11” pages, we decided to go the document feed direction. We chose this model for its basic features with an eye toward the price and how much space it occupies. Because it’s a feeder type scanner, a lot of it’s real estate is upward instead of flat, which means that width is just over regular paper width but well under regular paper length. It sits happily on a half-height bookcase near the desk and when we need to use it the catch tray gets flipped downward to collect the scanned pages.
Operation is pretty straightforward, once you get the software installed and pointed at the scanner’s USB connection. The software seems to have gotten pretty reliable, but the software UX feels dated. That’s not the end of the world, as we only care that it works reliably, but some folks might “judge a book by its cover” and just assume this Plustek isn’t up to date. If they do so, that’s their own loss. Maybe it will get a visual update at some point? What matters is that the scanner works, and works reliably. Five stars all day long!
