It has a conventional design for this type of scanner, with a near-vertical tray at the rear and a near-horizontal one at the front. The final button on the front panel, more of a catch, releases the scan head, which swings forward in case of paper jams, though we had no problems with jams during our review. Paper feeds from the rear to the front of the scanner in a similar way to many inkjet printers, though it makes a fairly sharp turn out of the bottom of the scanner and onto the output tray.
Loading paper is a little less intuitive than you might expect, too. The ScanMate i considers the front of each page to be the one facing the back of the scanner, while the back of each page is the one facing forwards. Until you get the hang of this, you may end up scanning a lot of blank back sides?? This is the latest version of Paperport and the latest-but-one version of Omnipage, so you get nearly all the benefits of the latest feature-sets. Bizcard 5, which handles the scanning of business cards and maintains a contact database of their details.
There are nine pre-defined job types already set up, things like low resolution black and white scan, medium resolution scan for OCR and high resolution dpi full-colour scan. Each of these job types can be configured for your own needs, so you can specify single-sided or duplex scans, set the resolution or define a folder for the output.
Kodak claims 20ppm for this scanner at dpi, a resolution suitable for archival as PDF files. Under test we bettered this, completing our page scan bundle in 57 seconds. This is only half the story, though, as the pages are scanned to a buffer while being converted to PDFs, which takes a further — still reasonably quick. We scanned the same bundle at dpi, so we could OCR them, and this took to scan, with the PDF documents ready for recognition after Recognition times depend on the complexity of the page layout and usually involve dealing with recognition queries by inspection, so we quote times just for scanning.
We suffered a number of multi-sheet mis-feeds during testing and had to manually separate the offending sheets and rescan. Trusted Score.
