As the leading authority and provider of critical intelligence on the imaging industry, twice a year, the firm gives special recognition to products that provide the most outstanding performance during BLI’s rigorous evaluations. This season, a team of highly-experienced technicians evaluated leading scanners based on a multitude of functions and features including value, ease of use, software integration, reliability, overall cost of ownership, speed and accuracy.

- Lower than average street price, total cost of ownership and associated cost per scan
- Better than average media-handling via its 100-sheet ADF
- Easy to use Image Capture Plus software that helps streamline the capture process
- Better than average OCR accuracy results for BLI’s black and blue test documents
- Faster than average color speeds at 300 dpi, and duplex speeds that exceeded simplex speeds

Plus, its flawless reliability and performance, and standard three-year warranty, build confidence with end users.”

According to BLI, a product recognized as a top “Pick” is a hard-earned award that buyers and IT directors can trust to better guide them in their acquisition decisions.
