PC IT 99: Canon launches new SCSI scanner

Canon has debuted a new addition to its range of flatbed scanners, announcing the CanoScan FB620S -- a SCSI scanner featuring an optical resolution of 600 x 600dpi.

On show at PC IT 99 in Sydney this week, the CanoScan FB620S features a front-mounted button for "push-button" scanning, an Adaptec SCSI card and a sleek design -- the unit stands 6cm tall and weighs in at 2kg.

Priced at $449, the scanner comes with a bundle of software including Adobe PhotoDeluxe, OmniPage LE OCR and Canon's own Toolbox software, which lets users turn the scanner into a "push-button copier, fax or e-mail station", the company claims.

The PC IT 99 Exhibition is taking place at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour, until Friday March 12.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
