Doxie – portable scanners for going paperless
Best-rated (less expensive) document scanner
Canon CanoScan Lide 300 Scanner The price gap between this and our best-rated choice is not big, but this scanner offers a different experience. It’s because it’s a flatbed scanner, which ensures that you can open the cover and put the papers or images directly on the glass and scan many pieces of paper at once. One reviewer comments, “I can put 4 standard size photos on the glass at a time and it takes less than 10 seconds to scan and send them to my computer.” “It plants each image into its own photo file automatically.” Even if the scanner door doesn’t have to be closed while scanning,” another reviewer has no trouble scanning their sketchbook. In order to hold the document in touch with the glass when scanning, I normally place a small weight (such as a large book or paperweight) on top of my sketchbook.” And if you just want to scan a regular old piece of paper, that’s no problem either.” One reviewer says, “I found myself having to scan some 600 pages of medical records on a flash drive in PDF format.” The scanner runs about 40 seconds per file on my printer. “I cut down the documents into batches of 100 pages for this Canon scanner and averages 30-35 minutes every 100 pages.

In all imaginable cases, varying from good and clean to badly wrinkled, ripped and otherwise mutilated, this little computer practically consumed piles and piles of old documents,” they write.” Hardly something that it can not ingest remains. I have scanned over 14,000 sheets so far, some of them complete two-sided pages, some as thin as receipts from a cash register. It takes pages of almost any amount.” The ability to address papers of any size is the main selling point of this scanner, and a feature that has been brought up in lots of reviews.” One says, “We scanned full-size pages and small cash register tape receipts without any problems.” It operates for a selection of applications as well. “One who ordered two of these says “even though machines had separate operating systems, all of them were simple to boot,” while another describes the setup as rapid with “solid TWAIN integration.
