Dell M109S portable projector

The tiny Dell M109S is a palm-size LED projector with a low brightness rating of only 50 lumens, which makes it best suited for very small groups in dark or dimly lit conference rooms. Even with its cables, AC adaptor, and carry case, the Dell M109S ...

Acer P3250 portable projector

If you're pinching pennies, the compact, 1.2kg Acer P3250 is the lowest-priced lamp-based, ultra-portable projector we've seen recently, and it has excellent image quality.

Nuance's OmniPage Professional 17 offers a variety of subtle but impressive enhancements over the previous version of this powerful, optical character recognition application.

Quality scanners offer easy image fixes

Casio projector offers quality images

Road warriors, take heed: Casio's US$1699 Cassiopeia Pro Super Slim XJ-S35 is the thinnest business projector I've reviewed. A scant 1.7 inches tall by 10.6 inches wide by 7.8 inches long, this 3.9-pound, 1024-by-768-resolution (XGA) model is the siz...

Canon LV-X5

The 3kg, LCD-based Canon LV-X5 is slightly larger than the most compact portables we have reviewed but it provides a slew of connectivity options, including two connections for linking to different computers and a third connection for hooking up an e...

Epson Perfection 3490 Photo

The Epson Perfection 3490 Photo is the best bargain among value scanners we've reviewed lately. With its winning combination of great image quality, reasonable performance, versatile features, and a very affordable cost, the 3490 is an excellent choi...

CanoScan LiDE 25

The CanoScan LiDE 25 features the slim design we've seen in other Canon scanners that use the same type of Compact Image Sensor (CIS) technology. Because they use tiny LEDs (LiDE stands for LED Indirect Exposure) instead of standard lamps, these scan...

Canon CanoScan LiDE 60

The slim Canon CanoScan LiDE 60 weighs barely two kilos and measures less than two inches high, making it a good choice for those with limited desktop space. With the small plastic stand that's included, you can use or store the scanner in an upright...

Epson Perfection 4490 Photo

With the debut of its new Perfection 4490 Photo, Epson has another winner on its hands. Although the 4490's price makes it expensive for a value model, it also provides powerful features ideal for photo enthusiasts and other advanced users to justify...
