Test 3 Scan­ner/copier

Good for more than just print­ing

Mac Format - - APPLE CHOICE -

These mul­ti­func­tion de­vices serve as scan­ners and copiers as well as prin­ters, which adds a lot of value with­out wast­ing valu­able desk space. The Canon printer has a flatbed scan­ner with a sim­ple lid, but if you need to copy or scan mul­ti­ple sheets at once the Brother, Ep­son and Ky­ocera de­vices all have au­to­matic doc­u­ment feed­ers (ADF).

The ADF in the Brother and Ky­ocera de­vices can take up to 50 sheets of pa­per but they can’t scan both sides. Ep­son’s ADF takes 30 pages at a time, and it will hap­pily copy and scan both sides au­to­mat­i­cally.

In terms of one page scan­ning at 600ppi, the Brother and Ky­ocera were joint first with 23 sec­onds, the Ep­son achieved 38 sec­onds, and the Canon took a pretty con­sid­er­able 59 sec­onds. For copy­ing one page at best qual­ity, Canon and Brother took 84 and 86 sec­onds, the Ep­son took 58 sec­onds, while the Ky­ocera fin­ished in just 11 sec­onds.
