That is a very good choice base on functionality, even though you did not tell what you wanted from the scanner production wise. But my guess is you need integrated with your phone and other functionality that make your day easier.
If so this will suite you just fine.

I use this one

Kodak i4200


It's extremely fast, especially when used with their software for OCR etc.

The main function is to send documents to a client management system and to make the documents searchable.

nattygreg, what do you mean by integrating with the phone. There is a VOIP phone system.  Sounds like there is something I may not have thought of.

Thank you Steven Wells.   I think they are looking to have the scanners on individual desks.  It looks like that price tag is prohibitive ($9K to $11k).

Thank you for your help.   After more research, the fujitisu is the way to go.  There are a lot of 3rd party venders that have written their own software around the system.

I'm sorry haven't been on in a bit my computer went down, but what I was saying is the ability to use the apps on your cell phone to control the scanner.
