Hewlett Packard HP 9250c Digital Sender Review

It’s our first review for the blog! We’ve filled you in on all the confusing scanner lingo, how to choose the right scanner, some of the best scanners for your budget, and even how a scanner works.

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.

Scan Resolution:

  • 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.

Other features:

  • 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.

  1. Hi, thank you for review! The HP site states that the scanning speed is 55 ipm instead of ppm. https://h10057.www1.hp.com/ecomcat/hpcatalog/specs/provisioner/99/CB472A.htm
    From your testing did it actually scan fast? Like 55 ppm or ipm?

    • Hi Michael!
      Thanks for the comment! Unfortunately, we’ve sold all of our 9250C’s, so I can’t go and re-test to give you a concrete answer. I will say that usually HP is pretty good about posting scanning speeds, so I would think 55 IPM is probably a good bet. Hope this helps!
