It’s time for some legit in-depth reviews of specific scanners that we are big fans of here at Imaging Systems. Without further ado, I give you the HP 9250C Digital Sender.
She’s a beaut. But beyond her natural good looks, the 9250C has got basically anything and everything you could need for basic office or home scanning. Let’s go over the specifics.
- 17.8 in. x 28.5 in. x 13.4 in. (with the keyboard extended) and 45 lbs. The depth of it would shorten up by say, 6 inches or so, when it’s retracted back inside the machine.
- Basically, it could fit on most desks comfortably, but you’d probably rather have it on a table not designated to a specific person.
- 600 x 600 DPI. Perfectly great for any text-based documents you’re scanning.
- If your workload involves heavy volumes of pictures, it’ll still do the job, but maybe not as crisp of a picture as you’d prefer.
- 55 PPM, with an ADF sheet capacity of 50 sheets.
- Pretty dang fast. That’s almost one sheet every second.
- The maximum horizontal scan size is 8.5 in., and the maximum vertical scan size is 14 in.
- What that means is you can scan things a bit larger than a standard piece of printer paper.
- As already mentioned, the 9250C has a pull-out keyboard that allows you send scans straight to emails, your address book, etc.
- USB connection.
- Easy to use and intuitive scanning buttons and digital screen.
Overall Rating: 9/10
- The 9250C Digital Sender is a great asset to any small business. It’s size and capabilities make it perfect for any business (or home, even) with a moderate to large amount of scanning needs. It’s easy to use, gives a great finished scan, and is capable of handling any heavy-duty volume of scans.
- The downside to this scanner is that it’s picture image isn’t amazing. It’ll still give you a good scan, and its resolution for text documents is way more than needed, but if you’re doing tons of picture scanning, the 9250C could fall short.
Where to buy:
- Brand new ones would cost you around $3000.
- Scannerparts.Biz and eBay both have professionally refurbished ones for sale for just $1000.
