HP Scanjet 7800

 

The HP Scanjet 7800 offers lots of features and comes with a plethora of useful programs.

Excellent software package. Twain and ISIS driver support.

Card scan feature and front panel scan menu need improvement.

I would definitely recommend the product for someone that is trying to organize all their doents.

The speed is amazing. The software is very user friendly

The processing speed of the doents appears to take longer than anticipated

Product Specifications

Now your whole workgroup can manage office documents with a powerful, programmable, yet compact HP ScanJet 7800 Document Scanner that includes a suite of versatile document management software. Increase productivity with automatic scanning. Rather than loading each page by hand, the automatic document (ADF) feeder allows you to load up to 50 pages at once. Both sides of the page are scanned simultaneously with one-pass two-sided scanning, delivering a speed of 50 images per minute (ipm) for two-sided documents (singlesided documents process at 25 pages per minute). Save time with customized scan profiles. Settings for recurring scan jobs - paper size, file destination, and more - can be saved as scan profiles and employed again later at the touch of a button. HP Smart Document Scan Software supports up to 30 scan profiles and comes with preset profiles to get started. The scanner has a pull-out reference chart to list profiles and their corresponding numbers. Scan a variety of paper sizes, weights and types. The scanner handles everything from 2 by 3.5 inch cards - such as plastic or laminated IDs, insurance and business cards - to documents up to legal size (8.5 by 14 inches). Adjust the paper tray to fit specific page widths to easily scan odd-size documents, such as checks. Flexibly convert and deliver. HP Smart Document Scan Software provides everything needed to scan, correct errors, convert, and deliver electronic files. Convert your hardcopies into a variety of popular file formats: including Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word and Excel, Corel, WordPerfect, TIFF, and JPEG. Electronic files can be easily edited, e-mailed, delivered to local or network folders and organized. A preview window lets you rearrange, delete or add scanned pages. Use bar codes to separate jobs and manage workflow.
