The Avision AD230 Document Scanner is a compact desktop scanner that can scan up to 40 pages a minute in 200dpi colour. This scanner comes with a host of features and software to help meet nearly every office's scanning functions. It can hold up to 80 pages of paper at a time and can support up to US legal paper size. The scanner can send your scans to your computer in JPEG or PDF format, both in colour or black and white. While also having the ability to scan to email or scan directly to a printer. I used this scanner in order to send some documents over to my work and the quality and ease of doing so was very good. The quality of the scans were very acceptable as well. Using the scanner in my small office at home was very good as it didn't seem to over heat my room, cause any additional noise when in standby or was overly loud when in use. It also folded up neatly when not in use so wasn't a burden to have on my desk.
With the scanner you get some software to use, PaperPort SE14 and Avision Button Manager V2 that helped to give you the functionality described above. The software is easy to install, friendly to use without having to read a manual and does with it says on the tin. If your looking for a robust desktop scanner then this could easily do the job for you. It is currently available from Amazon UK priced at £299
