Flatbed Scanners

Electronics are replacing mechanical things everywhere, and many of us now need files in digital form or we can't use them properly. When you get hard copy and need to digitize it, you need scanners. (Like when need to save money, you need Overstock.com.) Scanners are like copiers except that they output a data file instead of a piece of paper.
Scanners come in a variety of models suited to the needs of a variety of users. The most common type is flatbed scanners, so called because it's a scanner with a large flat plate of glass on which the page to be scanned lays. These are the general purpose scanners, good for documents and photos, large or small. Additionally, document scanners may be designed specifically to read text documents. For those with loads of slides or transparencies, film scanners are specialized units designed for non-paper items. If you travel often, handheld scanners can bring the convenience of the home or office computer on the road. Are you a member of Club O? Well, then, buy one of each scanner--you'll save a boatload on shipping!
Flatbed scanners look and work like copiers: place the page on the glass, press the button and don't look directly at the bright light. A computer scanner's features vary, along with price; if it meets your needs it is the right scanner for you. If you need a big color flatbed scanner, then buy it and don't worry about the price (not that you ever have to worry about prices when you shop at Overstock.com) .
A portable digital scanner, small enough to take almost anywhere, works well with laptops. This can be a slim desktop scanner or even a handheld scanner. These scanner models are often powered via their USB connection and as light as one pound. They are as handy as they are affordable.

    I purchased this scanner to help us when scanning books and needed another scanner. I works well great, the software that came with it is easy to learn and use.

    So far I love this scanner! It stays in "getting ready to scan" mode a little long, but does a beautiful job - even with 3-dimensional objects.

  • Fast and dependable

    brewstudy  from Chicago, IL, Rating:5.0

    I need my scanner to process a lot of paper without much monitoring to see if pages are running through two at a time. With only two exceptions--both when the papers had been mailed to me and were bent at precisely the same spot--this hasn't happened in at least 500 multi-page scan jobs. And even then it was evident because the jobs completely too quickly. So dependability has been exactly what I was looking for. I liked it so much I bought two, one for the home and one for the office.

    Good scanner for medical use

    This is a great card scanner for the medical field. Our EMR supports this one and it will be a ble to do doublesided scanning once we upgrade to the latest version. We use it to scan ID cards and insurance cards into our EMR. We used to use Bizcard scanners and this one is much better.
