Epson Perfection 1200U


Very pricey and big, but lots of multimedia pluses for presentations.

The Epson Perfection 1200U provides a big bang for a small price, and it could be a smart choice for some corporate users as well as SOHO users. With the optional attachments, this scanner turns into a workhorse capable of handling any scanning task.

Editor's Choice!
