What should be aware of before buying Desktop a flatbed scanner:

Flatbed vs Document Handler:  Decide what kind of scanner you need. Flatbed scanners have a glass plate and a lid, and document handlers have a feeder mechanism to load the paper, many sheets at a time. Many scanners have both capabilities.

Speed:  Look for how many pages per minute the scanner can handle. You’ll pay more for faster scanners, but if you plan to work with large volumes of paper, you’ll need the speed.

One-sided vs Two-sided: Can the scanner handle two-sided scanning or do you need to scan the back of pages separately? This is also referred to as simplex vs duplex.

Maximum Paper Size: What is the largest paper size you need to handle? Look for the maximum paper size – standard letter size (8.5″x11″), legal (8.5″x14″), or larger sizes (11″x17″).

Resolution:  Each scanner scans at a certain number of dots per inch (dpi). For regular documents, 600dpi is fine, but you may need higher resolution if you work with photos.

Network Connectivity: Do you need just one computer to have access to the scanner or will you need the networking capability of multiple computers?

Software Capabilities:  With optical recognition software the scanner can save a machine-generated document as a Word or a text file that you can later edit, saving a lot of time.
