    The Kodak ScanMate i940 Scanner has a task ahead of it to prove itself relevant in the age where all in ones rule.

    If you're often dealing with documents on the move, Doxie Go is a good mobile scanner, but one that's expensive.

    Canon imageFORMULA P-215 review

    9  

    The Canon imageFORMULA P-215's predecessor, the imageFORMULA P-150M, was a decent portable scanner, but it wasn't without its problems. Can the Canon imageFORMULA P-215 avoid the sins of its father?

    Reflecta's CMOS scanner works quickly, but is its top resolution of 3.8MP enough?

    You may well have thought that the days of the flatbed scanner are behind us, thanks to multifunction print/fax/scan/copy machines and digital photography. But no. They continue to sell well to people with old photos, negatives and slides that need scanning. This is because the flatbed offers a better scanning quality and accessories than all-in-ones.

    IRIScan Express 2 review

    At first glance, the IRIScan Express looked like it could be great. It’s powered by the USB cable and the driver installed without a hitch. But when entering the serial number supplied to unlock our ReadIris 11 software, we were told it was ‘invalid’.

    The 4490 offers much of the appeal of the 4990 Photo but at a far lowerprice. It boasts the same 4800x9600dpi resolution for a start, thoughthe stratospheric resolution figures being bandied about

    One of the aims of such tests is to establish how much you need to payfor a flatbed scanner. Central to this is whether you want high-quality film scanning, as this is what tends to bump up the price.

    Providing a quick way to translate text from French or Spanish to English and vice versa is the Wizcom Quicktionary 3 Lite. By inputting text using the built-in scanner or its touchscreen keyboard and stylus, it's easy to use when

    Pentax DS Mobile 600 review

    Pentax's original DS Mobile was focused entirely on delivering the ability to scan documents and pictures on the move. At about the size of a small umbrella, it was unapologetic about putting convenience ahead of ultimate image quality

    It probably won't revolutionise the office, but if you're looking for a fast, easy and safe way to store your business card collection, the CardScan Executive V8 is certainly worth considering

    Do you have stacks of old prints and slides, and want high-quality scans? Perhaps you can't afford a dedicated high-end film scanner? Then consider this Epson model. It's a high-quality flatbed with print and slide adaptor frames for volume scanning

    This machine is an all-in- one fax, colour inkjet printer, scanner and copier. It performs with varying ability, faces stiff competition from HP and Epson, but generally failed to impress us considering the price

    Fujitsu ScanSnap S500M review

    Flatbed scanners still offer the highest quality scans for graphics work. For document scanning, though, where you don't need fine graphics quality, machines like the ScanSnap are the better option...

    Optical scanners are common in offices, but portable scanners remain a rarity. The Planon DocuPen RC800 (£210 inc. VAT) is a unique, if expensive solution. Sleek and portable, the DocuPen can be easily carried

    With the C534, Lexmark is entering the market for quality laser printers under a grand. The initial investment is low enough for this printer to find its way into both homes and offices alike

    Laser printers aren't what they used to be. The price tags have seen unprecedented drops in recent times, plus they're far more efficient than the dinosaurs of yesteryear. The quality of colour prints from a laser has also seen big improvements
