Visioneer Strobe XP 220


The Visioneer Strobe XP 220 is an office-oriented scanner suitable for both the desktop and portable scanning.

Portable. Highly capable software bundle. Integrated Kofax Virtual ReScan digitally enhances hard-to-scan originals.

Sheet-fed only. Manual feed only. Limited usefulness for scanning photos.

Visioneer SXP2205D-WU 600 dpi 48bit USB Interface Sheet Fed/Document Fed XP 220 Scanner


Does what it needs to do

Back does not stay on or causes jams ; Software is out of date, you think with such a high price tag it would be more current version ; Kind of touch with calibration

Do Not Buy


Unit arrived and worked long enough to calibrate. After calibration, unit would not scan anything nor would it be recognized by computer.

Desk top easy!


We bought one of these 6 months ago and liked it so well, we purchased two more. Very easy to use with very few user issues. For a desk top scanner, it's hard to beat!

Easy Setup,Good Bit Depth,Good Resolution

I bought this to replace the strobe xp... which had nothing wrong with it, just looking to update it with the current version of paperport. First off, the one touch does not have a scan to the native *.max file format, rather it creates a PDF...

This is going back to the store!!


We just upgraded from the Visioneer Strobe 200 which no one was very happy with. We were looking forward to the new 220 thinking it would be much better improved. This scanner does not feed correctly it pulls the paper sideways and then reverses...
