HP ScanJet Pro 3000 s2 Document Scanner Review – 3000S2

Buy it on Amazon – http://lon.tv/570z9 (affiliate link)

If you’re a Mac user I’ll save you a lot of time – this scanner is not for you. HP did the absolute minimum from the software side to make this device compatible, but it largely just involves bolting it onto the Mac’s built in image capture application. It works, but you lose many of the features Windows users enjoy including blank page detection and two of the three included software packages.

On Windows the scanner is pretty capable. The software is easy to use and quite intuitive – it has a number of OCR modes built in, and I would rank the software experience with what I’ve experienced on my Scansnap ix500 scanner. The set up process was equally uneventful.

The scanner is very fast, offering many of the features other more expensive devices have in this space including one pass scanning of two sided documents and a sensor to detect when more than one page was ingested. It lacks Wifi so it can only work with a single computer plugged in via USB.

The bottom line? Definitely not for Mac users. But Windows users looking for something well under $400 should give it some consideration.

Do you have a Mac friendly recommendation? I am always shocked at the price this genre of scanner commands, but I suppose you have to pay for convenience.
