Panasonic KV SS905C Scanner Review

 The Panasonic KV SS905C scanner is a bulky, yet high-speed, high scan resolution scanner. It doesn’t have many “extra” features like some of its counterparts do, but its high points are incredibly high! It could be just right for your scan-heavy business!

Panasonic KV SS905C

Dimensions:

  • 24.7 in. x 21.5 in. x 16.3 in.
  • 114 lbs.
  • It’s a fairly large scanner, and definitely heavy.

Scan Resolution:

  • 600 DPI.
  • Pretty great resolution. Text documents will look flawless, and images will be decently good.

Speed:

  • 98 PPM.
  • Super fast. Like, 2-5 times as fast as most other scanners. Compared to other scanners, its in the 99th percentile for sure.

Media:

  • Maximum scan size of 11 in. x 17 in.
  • Paper products, as there’s no flatbed to give you more versatility.

Other Features:

  • Automatic document feeder with 1000 sheet capacity.
  • Additional software available for long paper scanning (up to 180 feet).
  • Advanced Panasonic Image Enhancement Technology including Dynamic Threshold Technology.

Overall Rating: 8/10

The Panasonic KV SS905C scanner got a pretty high rating even though it leaves a lot to be desired. No, it’s not perfect, but this is clearly a scanner that was designed for a specific purpose: high-volume scanning. Some businesses only need to scan a few times a day. This is not the scanner for you. Its incredibly fast speed and its automatic document feeder with 1000 sheet capacity combined with its high scan resolution makes it perfect for any business with a lot of text scans to do. It’s lacking in the “extras” department, sure, but like I said, this scanner was made for businesses that don’t really need those extras anyways.

Overall, the KV SS905C has some great high points while also having some areas that leave you wanting more. However, if you just need a scanner that’s quick and gives a great scan, this Panasonic model could be perfect for you. If you’re looking to buy one, they’re sold on Ebay and ScannerParts.Biz!

Pansonic KV S1025C Scanner Review

 The Panasonic KV S1025C scanner is a great little scanner that packs a big punch. It could be perfect for any small business! Let’s get into the details!

Panasonic KV S1025C

Dimensions:

  • 12.5 in. x 8.5 in. x 7.8 in.
  • 9.3 lbs.
  • This scanner is perfect if you have very limited space. It’s compact and lightweight, making it easy to move around.

Scan Resolution:

  • 600 DPI.
  • Great resolution, especially for such a small scanner.
  • Any text documents will look clean and crisp. Images will be good, but not great.

Speed:

  • 26 PPM
  • Not super quick. Still, one page every other second is acceptable.
  • If you have mountains and mountains of papers to scan every day, then the KV S1025C may not be right for your business. If you just have casual scanning, though, the speed won’t make a difference.

Media:

  • Minimum 1.9 in. x 2.8 in.
  • Maximum 8.5 in. x 100 in.
  • Basically, you can scan anything as long as it’s not too thick or wide.

Other Features:

  • Automatic document feeder (ADF) with 50 sheet capacity.
  • Ability to handle many different types of paper.
  • Double feed prevention roller system.

Overall Rating: 8/10

The KV S1025C has so many great qualities that are perfect for any small business. Here are its highlights:

  • Super compact. The dimensions and weight of this scanner are unbeatable. It can fit anywhere, and is light enough that anyone can move it around with ease.
  • Scan resolution. It can be hard to find a scanner that has great scan resolution while not taking up an entire room by itself. The KV S1025C does just that. At 600 DPI, this scanner will give great text (and image) scans.
  • Freedom to scan! For not having a flatbed glass to scan on, you still have incredible freedom in what you’re scanning. Yes, it still needs to be paper-based, but the length you can scan is crazy.

Why didn’t it get 10/10? A couple issues:

  • The speed. I know I said that unless you have mounds of paperwork, it won’t make a difference. And I stand by that. But maybe you do have mounds of paperwork. Or maybe you’re just really impatient. Either way, 26 PPM is definitely on the low-end and can’t be overlooked.
  • The lack of fun extras. It’s a straight-up scanner, and I can respect that. But lack of OCR software, a digital display panel, or basically any other “fun” add-on brings it down a notch. Competitors have some of these fun things, so it’s another issue that, though small, can’t be overlooked.

The Panasonic KV S1025C scanner could be perfect for your business. It has tons of great things going for it, with only minor issues to get around. If you’re looking for one, they’re sold on Ebay and ScannerParts.Biz.

Panasonic KV-S2026C Pass-Through Scanner Review

The Panasonic KV S2026C pass-through scanner is a compact, high-resolution scanner. It could be just right for your business, depending on what you’re looking for. Let’s get into it!

Panasonic KV S2026C

Dimensions:

  • 13.5 in. x 19.2 in. x 10.6 in.
  • 18.7 lbs.
  • The S2026C is the perfect size for any small business. It’s compact and light-weight, making it easy to move and find space for.

Scan Resolution:

  • 600 DPI.
  • That’s pretty good. Any text document will look great. Pictures are doable and will look professional, but if you’re always scanning photos you may want to upgrade.

Speed:

  • 40 PPM (B&W)
  • 18 PPM (Color)
  • The black and white is O.K. The color is kind of slow. I mean, I guess 1 sheet every 3ish seconds is fine, but there are other scanners with much higher speeds.

Media:

  • Minimum scan size of 2.0 in. x 2.8 in.
  • Maximum scan size of 8.5 in. x 14 in.
  • Plain paper, between .05-.51 mm thick.
  • The S2026C can handle most of your scanning needs, so long as they consist of plain paper. Business cards and over-sized sheets are fair game.

Other Features:

  • Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) with 120 sheet capacity.
  • SCSI and USB connectivity capabilities.
  • Windows compatibility.

Overall Rating: 5/10

The Panasonic KV S2026C has a lot of really great qualities. However, it’s got a few that make me raise an eyebrow. Why only 5/10? Well, let’s start with the high points.

  • The size of this scanner is perfect. It’s small and easy to move, making it a home run for any business that has limited space.
  • The scan resolution for the S2026C is pretty good, especially for its size. All your text documents will look phenomenal, and your pictures will be decent enough.
  • The ADF is a great feature with a huge capacity!

Now on to some of the lower points.

  • This scanner is slower than most others like it. If you have heavy-duty scanning needs, this could potentially double or even triple your time at the scanner.
  • Though this pass-through scanner is good, it doesn’t give you the freedoms that flatbed scanners do. You’re much more limited in what you can scan.
  • In general, the features of the scanner are underwhelming. There’s no buttons or panel on the scanner to make for easy one-touch scanning, there’s no automatic sensors. It’s a standard scanner. Which would be okay, except the price of this scanner doesn’t match up with other scanners with the same features.

Overall, this is a good scanner. It does the job and will give you a quality scan. If it were a lower price, it would be amazing. However, compared to other scanners in a similar price range, some of its features just don’t match up. That being said, maybe all you want is a no-fuss, reliable scanner. If that’s the case, you could be very happy with the KV S2026C! If you’re looking to buy, they’re sold on Ebay and ScannerParts.Biz!
