a good scanner

I purchased this for scanning high volume of double sided loose pages. For this the scanner is excellent. If I had a duplex multifunction printer like my business partner I probably would have skipped this. The quality and speed of this device is higher but I do not really require it. Having said that I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for a scanner for high volumes of invoices, etc that require digitizing.
