Getting the machine started is extremely simple. Just load up to 50 different sheets of paper into the scanner at a time. The document scanner can process these pages and save them all to your computer. Whether you are trying to save and import copies of all your receipts or you need to scan and save legal-sized documents, this scanner can handle it all. All the pages can be different sizes in one scan job too, which saves you the time it would take to separate out all the different pages. You won’t have to load the pages one at a time, because this scanner is not a traditional flat-bed scanner. It looks and feels more like a fax machine.

This sheet-fed scanner works through the scan jobs very quickly. Scanning documents and saving them is simple with this PDF scanner. The document scanner has all of the different drivers and software you’ll need to start using the desktop scanner immediately.

The most common option when uploading documents is to upload them into a PDF file format. And while PDF file formats are the most common, this machine can upload documents in a variety of different file formats, including JPEG and TIFF files. The 600 dpi optical resolution means your document files will have a high resolution, and the scanner even works well with photos.

However, this scanner does not have text recognition options and it does not import documents that are directly connected to different software applications such as TurboTax or Outlook. This document scanner is fast and reliable but lacks some of the advanced features of its competitors.
