I use the Canon ImageFormulaP-150M. The “M” designates its compatibility with a Macintosh, which is the machine it is connected to at home.
Why did I choose this particular scanner?
- I wanted something small, that wouldn’t take a lot of space on my desk
- I wanted something that would handle the volume that I typically have–usually less than 10 pages/day1
- I required a scanner that was compatible with a Mac.
- I wanted a scanner that could scan directly into Evernote.
The Canon ImageFormula P-150M meets all of these requirements. It can scan high quality images, and can scan something like 14 pages per minute, which meets my needs. It has a programmable button that allows you to put your pages in the scanner, push the button and have the resulting PDF send directly to Evernote. I’ve been using this scanner for months and have never had a problem with it. It works very well and I have no problem recommending it for others who have similar requirements.
Here’s what the scanner looks like in action:
