Whether you run a business or not, there are some consumer electronics that will simplify life for you. In order to get rid of the endless stacks of paperwork, bills and documents, I recently purchased a Standalone scanner.
The Plustek eScan A150 is a powerful Standalone Network & WiFi Document Scanner. It includes many very useful features including 25 page-per-minute scan speed, Ethernet and wireless 802.11 b/g/n network connectivity, a TouchScreen display, and an up to 50-page capacity auto document feeder.
Researching scanners I discovered that not all scanners are created equal. Some brands make the action of scanning into a complex task. The eScan A150 has a built-in seven inch LCD touchscreen with a smartphone-like Apollo interface. The intuitive Apollo user interface (UI) makes it easy to scan, edit and distribute your file (to multiple destinations) .
Setup for the eScan is as simple and does not need to be connected to a computer. Once you have unpacked it, turn it on and then plug the Ethernet it into your network. If you prefer the wireless option, then the network configuration is completed with the three steps. The average range between the scanner and network (router, hub, switch) appliance is for WiFi 200ft.
There are many features that I love about the eScan. If you have multiple pages, the eScan allows you to save all the images within a single document. You can also save it as a picture (JPG, TIFF, PNG) or PDF document. The eScan A150 is a duplex scanner, it will scan both sides of the document with one scan.
The eScan A150 has a built-in seven inch LCD touchscreen that enables you to verify and review your scanned document.
You have the option to edit (ie crop, rotate, redact) the document a page at a time. Plustek also provides you with the scan-to multiple destinations feature for:
- USB drive
- Network folder
- eMail address
- cloud destinations (Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, Box, SharePoint or FTP)
Bottom line. If you are looking for an appliance that is easy to set up and even easier to use, then consider purchasing the Plustek eScan A150.
