The Plustek OpticBook 4600 is a 48-bit USB color flatbed scanner that is easy to install and can digitize documents, books, and photos. This $900 scannerweighs roughly 8.5 pounds and comes bundled with scanning, document management, and optical...

Creates searchable PDFs via a single push button ; 50-page automatic document feeder

Slower than other document scanners ; Doesn't perform duplex scanning automatically

This premium-priced book scanner works quickly but its automated features are less than perfect.

Plustek OpticBook 4600 Scanner

 

The Plustek OpticBook scanner is priced too high for normal home or small-office use, but if you need to digitize a lot of books, it may be worth the expense.

Plustek's OpticBook 4600 is different from most desktop scanners. Whereas others are designed for getting your photographs and magazine pages onto your computer, the OpticBook 4600 concentrates on digitising books. It's therefore not ideal for photo...

Designed to make photocopiers obsolete – though that will never happen due to the fact that computers are generally a pain in the neck – Plustek’s OpticBook 4600 does indeed make it relatively simple to scan, save and store papers, books, magazines,...
