Fujitsu M3096E Scanner Review

 The Fujitsu M3096E scanner is an inexpensive, versatile flatbed scanner with sheet-fed capabilities. Its price and reliability could make it the perfect scanner for your small business!

m3069e

Dimensions:

  • 27.4 in. x 19.7 in. x 6.8 in.
  • 38.6 lbs.
  • It’s smaller than most flatbed scanners, and would probably fit in any small office without issue.

Scan Resolution:

  • 400 DPI.
  • Not amazing, but not awful, either.  Your text documents will look great, but if you have a lot of image scanning to do, you may want to look elsewhere.

Speed:

  • 22 PPM.
  • That’s pretty slow. The median for scanners is in the upper 30’s, so the M3096E is definitely lacking in this area.

Media:

  • Minimum scan size of 6.8 in. x 8.3 in.
  • Maximum scan size of 11.7 in. x 17 in.
  • Flatbed scanner allows for 3D (and smaller paper) scanning capabilities.

Other Features:

  • Automatic document feeder with 50 sheet capacity.

Overall Rating: 8/10

The Fujitsu M3096E is a great scanner for many businesses. It’s lacking in a lot of areas, as I’m sure you noticed, so why did it get a whopping 8/10? Price. This scanner is incredibly inexpensive, coming in at around 1/3 of the price of many other flatbed scanners. Yes, it leaves much to be desired, but if you just need a versatile scanner with a decent scan resolution that’ll get the job done without breaking the bank, this scanner is perfect.

Obviously if your business needs a faster, higher resolution, more gadget-y scanner, then the M3096E is not for you. But, I know there are plenty of businesses that just need a reliable scanner for a good price, in which case this Fujitsu model could be perfect. 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.
