Tests and conclusions

PcMag appreciated the completeness of the supplied software, which includes: HP Image Zone (Macintosh and Windows), ScanSoft OmniForm Standard (Windows), QuickScan Pro Demo (Windows), Adobe Photoshop Elements (Windows and Macintosh), ScanSoft PaperPort Deluxe (Windows ), NewSoft Presto! PageManager (Macintosh). Not to mention the presence of Twain, WIA and ISIS drivers. In practice it is possible to interface the scanner with all types of applications available on the market.

In the OCR tests with ReadIris Pro 9.0 the text recognition was correct in 100% of cases: both with Arial 6 (and bigger), and Times New Roman 10 (and bigger). When scanning a 25-page document, the testers recorded 6.4 PPM for one side and only 4.2 PPM for both sides. With the images the results were qualitatively acceptable, but nothing more. In short, a business product that is appreciated for its versatility and the wide availability of advanced functions. The list price seems to be adequate for the performance and overall quality.
