I have used the FUJITSU Document Scanner ScanSnap iX500 and been very happy with it. It's a higher priced scanner though. It's currently $500 at Staples and $400 on Amazon. Is not a printer Various paper sizes, including A4 and automatically recognizes the size of the paper. Duplex capable Windows and OS X drivers. Dimensions: 292 mm x 159 mm x 168 mm (11....

We ended up going to a local PC store today so my mother could physically examine the printers. I will give a brief run down of the printers we looked at, it may help others with their choice. My mother had already decided that having an SD card was now a must rather than a nice to have. HP The store had a decent range of HP MFP's however none of them had ...

Basically you have 2 options: Hand-held 3D scanners (cost at least $300): Sense 3D scanner, Structure.io, Go!SCAN, Fuel3D. Should work out-of-the-box. USB depth sensors (difficult to find < $100). These have a few limitations: All don't come with an SDK that creates high quality polygon models from 3D pointcloud. You'll end up coding. Do not contain an ...

The Planon SS100 is the only truly portable scanner I could find. You can scan up to 600 images before having to dump them onto your computer via USB Charges over USB Monochrome or color scans Includes software for organization and OCR One little downfall which you probably won't care about is that it can't scan wide documents like 8.5x11" paper. It's ...

It's not pocket sized, but it is portable: NeatReceipts. The scanner is 10.8"W x 1.6"D x 1.3"H and weighs less than a pound, allowing it to scan full sheets of paper. Other features: Scans in color, grayscale or black and white Optical Character Recognition (OCR) + Intelligent Text Recognition (ITR) Can scan 3-4 receipts per minute Software runs on OS X ...

The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury meets most of the requirements. It is a little more than your ideal price.

If you are willing to adjust your price slightly, I recommend the HP OfficeJet Pro 8720. It won The Wirecutter's best all in one printer recommendation in September 2016. Among the many features listed on Amazon: Fast two-sided copying and scanning: Breeze through multipage documents with one-pass two-sided scanning and a 50-page automatic document ...

I am going to give three options here. I am not sure if they will hit the budget you are looking for but they are all GREAT scanners. I personally own the IX500 and it is the best scanner I have ever owned. This includes being better than commercial scanners that cost upwards of $5000. Fujitsu iX500 @ Amazon $415.93 Excellent scanner that includes color ...

I have the Dacuda Pocketscan which as previously a successful Kickstarter project. It fits most of your requirements. Most, because being a hand-sized item, the power button is on the small side, about Pez candy size. The begin/end scan button is the larger round button on the top. Results are good, although most of my scans with it are newspaper quality ...

I recommend a HP printer, specifically the HP LaserJet Pro M130nw. Amazon claims to sell it for $99 once you add to cart. HP has always had the best support on Linux [1][2][3], and the current open source drivers – which are in the default Ubuntu repository (main),* and may even be installed by default^ – claim full support for the M130 series [...

I own and use a previously successful Kickstarter campaign product known as the Dacuda Pocket Scanner. The 2014 project resulted in a great working hand-sized device which produces reasonably good output. My search for a link from which to purchase resulted in failure, as all indications (from Dacuda!) is that they don't and won't make them any more. ...

Regarding your LIDE 400 and Canoscan LIDE 400. They are probably the same, but have different names since the seller forgot to type the full name and omitted "Canoscan" from "LIDE 400". I would go with Canon since they also make cameras and that expertise might go into their scanners. They probably both perform the same if they are the ...

I would recommend Brother MFC color lasers, such as the MFCL3770CDW which, at $400 retail, satisfies all of your specifications. Ubuntu drivers are available for direct download as a DEB file.

The Free Software Foundation has made a list of GNU/Linux compatible hardwares, freely editable by anyone with an account, which can be found here: https://www.fsf.org/resources/hw Then after going to that website go to H-node's search (H-node is the directory of FOSS hardware): https://h-node.org/ And go to scanners category: https://h-node.org/...

I've done this with a common Epson multifunction that has a document feeder. Receipts are a legal relic because they're entirely dependent on the belief they can't be fabricated well, so you'll get stupid requests like being told you need to scan in the full receipt but not cut it into segments. Obviously, if given that limitation, you'd normally have to ...

According to the manual, page 54 and onwards, you can assign a custom configuration to the scan button. There is a caveat in the manual that says you cannot scan via wireless using the button, but that's not a factor in your question. Assigning Start Button Settings or Scan Jobs You can view or change the default scan settings when you scan using the ...

I have used a few different models of Scansnap from Fujitsu and they have been great. They are expensive (4-5 hundred $), but well worth it in my opinion. If you put a document with writing on a single side, and the back of the document is anything other than white, it will scan it as well. I just delete the white pages from the pdf after. If you put in 5 ...

My office recently grabbed an HP ScanJet 3000 S3. It's a bit above your price range (closer to $800-900), but I've been in charge of developing our scan process and I can tell you with confidence that it does everything you listed. We specifically got it to digitize old paper records, and it is set up at a small stand-alone desk with a computer. ADF = ...

After further research using the correct search terms (and digging deeper on each device as neither Amazon or Newegg are that good at listing all relevant information, I have come up with this one. Epson WorkForce WF-3620 WiFi Direct All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer, Copier, Scanner $83.07 @ Amazon.com Has everything you asked for, and is under budget.

Maybe a mobile document scanner would work for you. Something like the Canon imageFORMULA P-208II It is small, has duplex functionality (scans both sides at once), and scans 8 pages per minute (7.5 seconds per page). I don't know your budget, but a little bit over 100 £/130 € doesn't seem that bad. I have no experience with this scanner, but a rating 4.3 ...

I use an old HP MFP1212 LaserJet. It scans to my 3 MacAirs, my Win10 desktop (or via any of them them to a Synology NAS). Pretty much bullet proof, though you can expect the auto sheet-feeder input to give up the ghost after feeding many thousand sheets. (I also have an Epson hi-res scanner which, frankly, I don't use: my Synology NAS is only 3 TB in RAID-...

It will be hard to find a stereo camera for < 100USD. Still, you can have a look on Microsoft Kinect and Asus Xtion PRO LIVE. There is no such stereo camera with a wireless video transmission in the market however you can make one using IEEE 802.11 transmission bands.
