SOUND SCAN­NING

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

The bet­ter of the lot among por­ta­ble scan­ners can work in­de­pen­dently. Oth­ers, like the HP Scan­jet 1000 Mo­bile Scan­ner, need to be con­nected to a PC to do the job of scan­ning doc­u­ments.

You are ready to go once the soft­ware has been in­stalled, and Scan­jet 1000 is con­nected to the PC via the USB ca­ble. This ca­ble also acts as the power source for the scan­ner. We tried ini­ti­at­ing a scan us­ing the scan­ner key, but with­out suc­cess. Fi­nally, we had to fall back on the scan­ner soft­ware to do the job.

Though the de­fault scan­ning res­o­lu­tion is 200 dpi, you can opt for be­tween 100 and 600 dpi. Sim­i­larly, the de­fault file for­mat of PDF can also be changed un­der the op­tions tab. Though noisy enough to at­tract the at­ten­tion of ev­ery­one in the vicin­ity, it has to be agreed that the Scan­jet 1000 scans re­ally well. In fact, it can eas­ily scan both sides of the doc­u­ment, just se­lect the soft­ware op­tion of sav­ing both sides be­ing scanned in a sin­gle file. Once a page is scanned, the soft­ware asks if you wish to scan an­other page. Scan­ning at 600 dpi takes longer, though the re­sults are im­pres­sive.
