A document scanner should be a pretty easy and basic thing to buy, since it’s a commodity. It’s been invented so long ago that it’s practically a few dozen years old and it had time to grow, mature and become efficient and inexpensive. However, things start to shift when you need one that can scan large amounts of documents. And I’m not talking about 1000 documents, I’m talking about 50.000 documents all in different sizes, shapes and types of paper. That can be troublesome. So you go online and when you look at the prices, you’ll be amazed that you’re going to need to pull out at least 1000 dollars from your pocket.
