Canon DR-M160 review


Resembling a small grey printer, the Canon DR-M160 doesn't perhaps look like a high-calibre document scanner costing close to £950. Look closer, however, and you see a design that improves considerably on that of Canon's much cheaper DR-C125.

Canon imageFormula DR-M160II


Have lots of documents to scan in a hurry? The Canon imageFormula DR-M160II is speedy at two-sided scanning and saving to searchable PDF format.

In testing, paper occasionally jammed when scanning in simplex mode. Lacks bundled document management and business card archiving software.

Overall, the Canon imageFormula DR-M160II did well on our tests, except for a couple of paper jams when scanning in simplex mode. Otherwise, it scanned accurately and the software did a terrific job of converting scans to searchable text, even though...
