Hi Katie,

Quote:What, your all-in-one printer didn't come with a team of scanner elves?

Since I know a lot of people here like to scan in old documentation, I thought I'd recommend a scanner for them. I've given up on flat bed scanners (except for photos).

Last year I picked up a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500. Reasonably priced (less than $500), small enough to set on corner of desk, and can scan 25 sheets, both sides, per minute in color. In a half hour, I can scan a 500 page manual and have a perfect PDF. I cut the spline off, scan it in and then have it spiral bound at Staples. It also has Wi-Fi so you can scan directly to a computer, tablet or cell phone (although I've never used it that way , other than to test it).

The ScanSnap is so easy to use, I find myself scanning in almost everything. I really prefer a paperless office.

I know - off topic - but thought some of you might be interested.
