The difference between consumer devices and devices intended for business use is mind-blowing. Take, for example, the new Plustek SmartOffice PS456U Scanner. The word “office” is right there in the title, because unless you work in an office, you don’t need the ability to scan 80 duplex-color pages in just one minute.

That’s exactly what this scanner can do: 80 duplex-color pages per minute with an 8,000 page-per-day cycle. There are also things like LED instant warm-up technology, single touch scanning, 100 page ADF capacity, auto wake-up, continuous scan, and the fact that it scans plastic cards and runs quietly.

Plustek is pushing their new scanner as an affordable yet powerful alternative to the competition. The SmartOffice PS456U retails for $849 and will be available through authorized Plustek retailers in September 2013.
