NeatReceipts NeatDesk Scanner

While I am the type of person who keeps track of their receipts and files them away in an organized accordion folder, I draw the line at scanning them into my PC. But I think my excuse of it being ‘too much work’ is losing ground. The NeatDesk from NeatReceipts is another scanner designed to make the whole process of creating digital copies of your receipts a lot easier thanks to software that can automatically recognize and record the dates and dollar amounts.

And while most receipt or business card scanners are designed as compact dedicated units, the NeatDesk can also accommodate regular 8.5×11 documents and can actually scan both sides in a single pass. The unit features dedicated slots for different sized documents (full pages vs. business cards) and there’s an easy to use PDF button on the front that will automatically scan and convert any document directly into a PDF file. With a supposed price tag of around $500 it’s a far cry from the cheapo $80 scanners available at most electronic stores these days, so I guess the real value must lie in the included software.

    The slots seem gimmicky. My Fujitsu ScanSnap S510 ($300 at Newegg) works fine with smaller stuff like business cards and index cards. The auto-processing could be nice, but not for a premium of $200. I process my stuff manually, and it's not a big deal.

    I guess its fair enough to have a price of $500 bucks, specs and features are nice… so I might give it a try..

    Good post but I think it is very much for NeatReceipts Scanner 500$.
    Thanks.

    First let me start off with the truth stretching. The scanner is very fast while scanning in B/W images but it did not seam like it was 25 PPM fast so I timed it using a stop watch. I was able to scan in a page (two sides) in 6.4 seconds that's 10 PPM not 25! As Fujitsu rates their ScanSnap S1500M at 20 PPM whether you scan one or two sides, I assumed I would see the NeatDesk scanner do the same. Thinking that they (NeatCo) must have been playing with some slick marketing numbers when they came up with the 25 PPM rate I figured I would see the 10 PPM rate double to 20 if I only scanned one side of a page instead of two. I was very disappointed to see that the rate did not change between one or two sides. Normally I would think that 10 PPM is a very quick scan, which it is, but it is more than half as fast as advertised.See Here: neatdesk
