HP ScanJet N8460

 

If your business requires scanning at serious speeds, then HP's Scanjet N8460 could be the answer.

There's plenty of heavyweight software supplied with the ScanJet N8460. As well as programs like Nuance's PaperPort 11 document manager and Readiris Pro 11 for OCR, there's a full copy of Kofax Virtual ReScan 4.1. This software does handy things like...

Unlike most modern desktop scanners, which tend to be small and sleek, the Scanjet N8460 is a huge and far from elegant device. But then it's made that way for a reason. The reason being that ...

A fast and robust desktop scanner, the Scanjet N8460 compares well against others designed to capture large volumes of information as part of a document management system. Bundled software, ISIS/TWAIN drivers and ultrasonic double-feed detector are...

Document scanners come in many shapes and sizes, and HP's Scanjet N8460 is one of the largest and strangest-looking desktop models we've seen.

High-capacity document feeder, High-speed scanning, Duplex scanning, Excellent software bundle, Barcode scanning, Oversize flatbed

No network connectivity (relies on a connected PC), Large desktop footprint, Heavy, Control panel lacks usability

The Scanjet N8640 is fast and flexible and comes with a very capable software bundle. However, the system as a whole would benefit from a usability makeover.

Horrible Scaner

 

I hate to be the first person to review this and give it such a horrible review, but all I can say is avoid this at all costs. I have worked with four different scanners of this same model and each one is as broken as the last. I must first state that...
