We are looking for a reasonably priced Print/Copy/Scanner that has the ability to scan to a network share with decent image compression.
We are using Dell 2335dn multi-function units (about $400 ea) and the PDF or TIFF file sizes they generate are about 600K per page on 200dpi resolution. I understand this is because they don't offer any image compression.
We have expensive ($Thousands) Sharp AR-257s that are able to scan and get the file size down to 70K per page.
We have tried Fujitsu ScanSnaps and they also are able to keep the file size down below 100K per page, but can't scan directly to a network share.
Manufacturers don't seem to list image compression as a spec on their websites. Any recommendation on a machine?
