have a look at:
KODAK Document Imaging - Document Scanners
some very good ones on there!! Don't know about PDF formats though!
Any recommendations for general office use?
Been a while since I've looked into these. Got an old HP6300 which is decent enough if a tad slowish.
Budget anywhere from 100-300+ each.
Would be useful to scan straight to PDF, otherwise software recommendations for such would be helpful too.
Epson, canon or HP for A4 flatebd scanner?
I have a Canon LiDE 25 set up on a dedicated Windows XP machine (no screen needed). Pupils can simply walk up to it, press "scan", and have a scanned image turn up in a networked file area. The software it comes with will scan straight to PDF. The scanner itself is powered over USB. Cost around £30.
I second the canon ones
Yeah, saw that post! Got two specced for our ICT room.
Looking for something higher spec for the office peeps though, preferably of the nippy variety too...
If you want some serious digitisation and TWAIN compliance isn't vital then look at Fujitsu SnapScan.
I bought one of their workgroup spec scanners a couple of years for my fiancée to digitise her worksheets and other resources and was stunned enough that I sat down rather gingerly after setting it up to scan the first set of 10 sheets through.
I figured I'd have enough time to go downstairs and put the kettle on.. Wrong! It scanned all of the 10 sheets in less than 30 seconds.. both sides in a single pass. All straight to PDF or JPEG..
Granted it's not Twain compliant but from what I can tell the reason for that is it would scan too slowly if it were.
Edit: Forgot to mention you can setup various options but from a PDF point of view you can scan multiple sheets to a single PDF or scan each sheet to PDF. Useful. Oh and many of the Fujitsu's come with Adobe Acrobat Standard or similar so you can edit things too.
