Kodak i2420 Scanner Review
The Kodak i2420 Scanner is evidently wished-for in a work group or small office, with its 40-page-per-minute, 75-page automatic document feeder (ADF) and an 80-image-per-minute speed rating which promises to deliver a volume of up to 5,000 pages per day. Although it’s small enough to share a desk with easily, it also serve up as a personal document scanner if you have abnormally heavy-duty scan needs.
Construction wise, it is similar to the Kodak i2400 which is in the process of substituting the Kodak Alaris’ line. The i2420 measures 9.7 by 13 by 6.3 inches (HWD) with the trays closed and the scanner body in a vertical orientation and weighs about 12 pounds. To use it, you spin the body so it’s at an angle to the base as an alternative to straight up and down, and then open the trays. When you’re not using it, you can make it go back to the perpendicular position, which minimizes the amount of space it takes up.
The i2420 comes with two scan utilities. First one installs the drivers and provides all the features which most small offices need, including options to scan to Evernote, Google Drive, SharePoint and Box. With the second one, you can optionally install from the disc which offers more enhanced features. For instance, it will let you batch scan, so you can put multiple documents in one stack of pages, and save each one in a different file. You can also split the documents by a blank page, a page with a bar code, or by particularizing some number of pages per document. Kodak Alaris also offers a Software Overview page in the documentation to help you pick which utility to use.
Optical resolution for the i2420 is 600 pixels per inch (ppi), which is emblematic for document scanners and more than what you require for most purposes.
It registers images with superior lucidity and more unswerving color. Built-in Perfect Page technology automatically fetches clear, crisp images, which minimizes the requirement for rescanning or post-image processing.
No proficiency required
Smart Touch technology lets you execute up to nine different tasks with the push of a button. Some such tasks include:
- Create PDFs
- Attach documents to e-mails
- Organize documents in folders
- Send to Cloud services
The pioneering stow-or-go design lets you save the scanner vertical when not in use, taking up least desktop space.
This scanner deals with almost any kind of document, small or large, thick or thin, and increases potential by scanning bound, oversize, and delicate documents with optional legal- and tabloid-size flatbed accessories.
The Kodak i2420 Scanner is an apparent pick. It fetches a suitably high-capacity ADF, higher maximum recommended daily volume than you most likely need in a small office, world-class programs for the applications you probably need, and only a slightly slower speed than you’d get with the next step up. Kodak i2420 Scanner will get things flowing faster as it promises a scanning solution that amalgamates simple operation and time-saving features in an extremely small and powerful package.
