Question :
Why do some scanners cost twice as much as others that have the same throughput rating?
 
Answer :
Two scanners may have the same pages-per-minute rating, but one can sometimes cost up to twice as much as the other. This is due to differences in quality, durability, daily duty cycle, feeding capabilities, included software, and other features.

For instance, Kodak and Bell & Howell production scanners generally cost much more than Canon or Fujitsu scanners that are rated at the same speed. The difference is that the Kodak and Bell & Howell scanners have a much higher daily duty cycle, which means they will break down less and require replacement parts less often in a production environment. The feeder mechanism is far superior to the Fujitsu or Canon. For these reasons, the long-term cost of ownership is actually much less on the more expensive models.

You can find a large selection of scanners on our Scanners page, as well as more information on choosing the best scanner for your requirements on the Scanners Guide page.
