Kodak ScanMate i940 Scanner for Macintosh Computers

 

The ScanMate i940 Scanner for Macintosh Computers is a capable portable scanner that's also good for light-duty desktop use.

Designed for the Mac. Fast for a portable scanner. 20-page ADF. Duplex scanning. Can run from AC or battery power. Nearly matched rated speed for USB-powered scans

Subpar OCR performance. Scan times under AC power were well below its rated speed

Kodak recently launched its ScanMate i940 Scanner for Macintosh Computers, the OS X counterpart to the Windows-based Kodak ScanMate i940 Scanner, an Editors' Choice. It's a welcome addition, as Mac-specific scanners are not easy to find. In our...

Pushing the envelope for how big a scanner can be and still count as portable, the Kodak ScanMate i940 ($395 direct) comes out of the box looking like nothing so much as an oversize brick covered in black plastic. It also looks a lot like the Editors'...

Fast. Duplex (two-sided). Scans to searchable PDF format as quickly as to image PDF. Can get power from a USB connection

A portable scanner - but is there any need for it?

There's a wide choice of document scanners at this price. Though capable, the ScanMate i940 isn't the best

Putting our initial issues aside this is a capable scanner that produces good images quickly. However, the Canon ImageFormula P-215 comes with superior software, feels better made and matches the Kodak for speed and quality. It's a better choice.

Indeed, asking prices in the £300-£500 range are very common. So, at just £259, the Kodak ScanMate i940 has an obvious advantage. But what do you lose in opting for a comparatively cheap model like the i940?

The Kodak ScanMate i940 has a fairly low price for a business sheet-fed scanner. As such, you shouldn’t expect fast performance, amazing quality, or a raft of features and software titles. However, if you just want a solid little sheet-fed that can...

Kodak manages to fit a scanner into a tiny case, but can this portable device match the quality of full-size units?

It's no lightweight, but the i940 is a low-cost portable scanner with a fair turn of speed and an integrated ADF

Consumer review by:

Great scanner for the money

 

This scanner works great. Scans quickly and with high quality. Had to call customer support to fine tune my settings (whether the scanner would read one side or two sides of paper). Found out it could be set to read which ever is being fed

No cons
