Editor's Notes

March 21, 2019:

This category proved to offer a somewhat surprising amount of variety, with good portable options like the Visioneer and Epson ES-50 offerings that users might be able to make a part of a mobile worksite. For the most part, though, desktop models seen to offer the best feature sets and the most robust duty cycles. The DS-780N from Epson combines just about everything you'd want to find in such a device, including a nice, big touchscreen for menu navigation. The features on their DS-530 are almost enough to make you forget how big and unruly it can be, but not so much that it could gain significant ground on our list.
