Summary: I am a big fan for digitizing documents for archiving. I have been doing so for more than 10 years. On hardware part, I have used several consumer level scanners from Brothers and Canon. On software part, I use PaperPort pro software to control scanners and also for post-scanning document editing purpose. The biggest problem of consumer level scanner is "SLOW". I am very happy to try out this i2900, a business class scanner.
Summary: KODAK SCANNER i2900 The Kodak i2900 is a rotary type scanner which uses an automatic document feeder. The feeder tray can hold up to 250 pages at a time. In addition this scanner has a letter size flatbed scanner which can be used for books or color photos. A nice feature of this flatbed is that the glass surface comes right to the front edge of the unit. This is handy for books as you can scan the whole page cleanly and the opposing page can just gently hang down.

Summary: The Kodak i2900 has a design defect. There is an ABS plastic piece that retains a primary paper drive roller. The plastic retainer is not strong enough to retain the roller for long. It cracks from fatigue, causing the drive roller to jam. I had one fail Dead-On-Arrival. Kodak would not talk to me unless I purchased a service contract. I returned it to Amazon and they shipped me a new one. The second one failed after a week with the same symptoms as the first.

Summary: The Kodak i2900 Scanner is a bit more of a scanner than I needed for my small business, but as Tim the Tool-Man used to say, "More power..." Based on the price, it is obvious that this is a small business scanner and not one that most people buying to scan a few pictures at home will look at. However, for the small business that has scanning needs, this is a very good machine.
Summary: At first, I was kind of torn as to whether or not this was the replace for many offices because of price comparison, but then I noticed some of the little things I liked about the machine, like the fact that tray rises and feeds, making for great scans each and every time, plus other features that simply grew on me as I discovered them.
Summary: I had pretty high expectations for the Kodak i2900 Scanner , and though I wasn't impressed with it at first (this review has been edited to reflect my thoughts after scanning several tens of thousands of pages), once I figured out the settings, I developed a more favorable impression of it. HARDWARE --------------------- Kodak has built what looks to be a pretty solid piece of equipment.
