Fujitsu fi-6800 review

Fujitsu's high volume, heavy duty production scanner could take care of almost all of your company's scanning needs. Simon Handby takes a closer look in our review.

ScandAll offers a grainy preview of scanned pages and allows you to apply tools such as deskew or full orientation correction before applying any changes and starting the next job. It's not the best software we've used and, depending on the host PC, some post-processing operations could take a minute or more on a job totalling several hundred pages. Fujitsu caters for more demanding applications by bundling Kofax VRS Pro. We found scanned images to be a little too dark at the default setting and, unfortunately, it's not possible to adjust this from the scanner's own control panel. However, we were very happy with the scan quality after making the adjustment in software.

So what's our verdict?

Verdict

With lower volume scanners such as Canon's £2,400 ImageFormula DR-6030C built to handle 10,000 operations a day, you need to be serious about scanning to justify the extra investment in such a heavy duty device. However, where there's a proven need for a robust, quick and reliable production scanner the fi-6800 is competitively priced and more than up to the job.
