Visioneer Strobe 500

 

This portable scanner can process two sides of a page at once, and has a removable document feeder.

Capable of duplexing ; Optional docking station with an autofeeder ; Simple hardware interface ; Software allows users to search inside PDFs ; Mac-compatible

Review: Visioneer Strobe 500 document scanner

 

The Visioneer Strobe 500's clever docking station allows it to server as both a desktop document scanner and a portable scanner.

Decent scanner for the price

 

For the price this scanner is a good choice if it is for occasional use. If you regularly scan many receipts a day, look elsewhere.

We bought this scanner from Newegg in 2010. It is still a general-purpose workhorse in the office. It can give either fast, OK quality scans or somewhat slower, high resolution ones ; The software bundled with the scanner is not worth installing. You...

As others mention, scanning receipts can be frustrating. The scanner allows inserting papers into either the top feeder slot (used for multiple sheets) or directly into the front of the scanner. The front-load slot is useful for a single page, as the...

Dynomite comes in Small packages

 

I bought this for business and it works good. The only con I have is that I had to do some research to find out what some of the programmed buttons do. The research was easy. I would recommend this product. I love visioneer as I also have the Patriot...
