Plustek OpticBook 4600 review

 

The Plustek OpticBook 4600 is a 48-bit USB colour flatbed scanner that is easy to install and can digitise documents, books, and photos.

The Plustek OpticBook 4600 handled OCR work very nicely, but for PDFs and other image scans you may have to invest a fair amount of time and manual labour to obtain pristine copies. That drawback, coupled with the Plustek's high price, makes the...

Plustek OpticBook 4600

 

Plustek's OpticBook 4600 is different from most desktop scanners. Whereas others are designed for getting your photographs and magazine pages onto your computer, the OpticBook 4600 concentrates on digitising books. It's therefore not ideal for photo...

Designed to make photocopiers obsolete – though that will never happen due to the fact that computers are generally a pain in the neck – Plustek’s OpticBook 4600 does indeed make it relatively simple to scan, save and store papers, books, magazines,...

Plustek OpticBook 4600 Scanner

 

The Plustek OpticBook 4600 is a 48-bit USB color flatbed scanner that is easy to install and can digitize documents, books, and photos. This $900 scannerweighs roughly 8.5 pounds and comes bundled with scanning, document management, and optical...

Creates searchable PDFs via a single push button ; 50-page automatic document feeder

Slower than other document scanners ; Doesn't perform duplex scanning automatically

This premium-priced book scanner works quickly but its automated features are less than perfect.

Plustek OpticBook 4600 Scanner Review and Ratings

 

The Plustek OpticBook scanner is priced too high for normal home or small-office use, but if you need to digitize a lot of books, it may be worth the expense.

Easy setup ; Accurately captures text from books, even print near spine ; Fast scan times ; Complete software bundle

Pricey ; No scan-to-USB function ; Each bundled application has its own install routine

Review: Plustek OpticBook 4600 Scanner

 

For a long time now, scanners have been a great way to make copies of photos and documents. On the other hand, books have always presented a unique problem for scanners. They are not flat, and so they do not fit well, and always leave a black shadowy...
