Plustek MobileOffice S420


The Plustek MobileOffice S420 is very fast for a manual-feed portable scanner, and comes with a dock that allows it to be shared between two PCs. This scanner, which is geared to business use, lacks features like duplex (two-sided) scanning and an...

Lightweight and portable. Very fast for a manual-feed portable scanner. Two programmable scan buttons. Dock with paper guide for shared scanning. USB powered

Limited to simplex scanning. Lacks an ADF

The Plustek MobileOffice S420 is speedy for a manual-feed portable scanner, and comes with a dock, but lacks an ADF and the capacity for duplex scanning.

Plustek MobileOffice S420 review


This scanner has a good set of features and a useful docking station, but it's expensive and its scan quality is disappointing.

Plustek MobileOffice S420 review


Plustek has most bases covered when it comes to scanning devices for the modern office, and has recently expanded its MobileOffice range with the S420.

Very fast at the default resolution; portable enough to carry around; convenient

Issues with dock design; quality not great; expensive

The S420 is fast, portable and convenient, but design issues and rather average results mean that the asking price is very high for the benefits on offer.

Inderdaad. Erg goed staat de Plustek MobileOffice S420 er niet op. Daar moeten we wel direct bij opmerken, dat we slechts een beperkt aantal testen van deskundigen hebben kunnen verzamelen. We voegen dagelijks testen toe, dus ook bij de MobileOffice...
