Plustek's AD450 Scans What Others Won't
23 August 2010
Excerpt: It ain’t pretty, and the AD450′s software looks like a refugee from the 1990s, but it can get the job done, if the job means scanning paper, performing OCR, turning business cards into contacts, or even making copies of ID badges. One of the largest scanners we tested, the AD450 doesn’t win many points on looks. But it does have some unique features. Need to scan credit cards or conference badges?
Pros: Scans one- or two-sided. Comes with software to scan business cards, scan to Word documents, PDFs, and more. Has a special feeder for scanning credit cards or plastic ID badges.
Cons: Only compatible with Windows. Slow. Bulky. Software is complicated, with confusing interface. No built-in support for cloud services.
Excerpt: Weighing just 1.3kg and costing £203, the Plustek MobileOffice AD450 is a 600dpi portable scanner that can handle up to 20 pages in its automatic document feeder, performs double-sided page scanning and provides good image quality in scanning a variety of documents.
