A bit slow for its rated speed. Tabloid-size scanning from flatbed or ADF. Offices looking for a heavy-duty tabloid scanner that can easily fit into their workflow would do well to consider the N It’s expensive, but you get a lot for the money you invest in it. The Flow N is documsnt humongous machine, measuring This tabloid-size document scanner with both flatbed and ADF definitely needs its own table and will take up a fair portion of itand requires scannner strong people to move into place.

Its ADF fits up to sheets of up to There are buttons for Setup, Scan, and Copy you can configure the latter two, or use default settings.
The scanner also includes an imprinter that lets you print text on the back of documents fed through the ADF. The Flow N lacks an LCD to display scan profiles and other info; there is an LED that can glow green, or orange to signal an alert such as when an error message popped up on my computer screen.
The N comes with a good software suite. The HP Smart Document Scan utility lets you create, edit, delete, and prioritize scan profiles, and initiate scans using any of the profiles. The other utility, HP Scanner Tools, lets you create and manage scan profiles, as well as perform maintenance tasks.
Readiris Pro for OCR. You can initiate scans from the N’s scan utility, its scan button, from its included programs, or from most any Windows program that includes a scan utility using the Isis, Twain, and WIA drivers.
Once you press the Scan button either from HP’s scan fltabed or the simplex or duplex buttons on the scanner itselfthe scan utility will l268a the pages as thumbnails on your computer screen. Once the scan is done, dcanjet can rotate, rearrange, or delete pages, and adjust brightness or contrast. Pressing the Save button will then save the scan.
Although this process in effect gives you a preview of the scan, it also adds an extra step. There is one profile that avoids this: You can reset any profile for one-button scanning by going into the scan utility and selecting “hide thumbnails,” something that isn’t intuitive but that is mentioned in the user manual. For testing, I set all our PDF timed tests to one-button mode. Scanner manufacturers rate their products for speed in pages per minute ppm for simplex one-sided and images per minute ipm for duplex two-sided scannr, where each side of flatbex page is considered a separate image.
HP rates the Flow at 50 ppm simplex and ipm duplex. I timed the N in scanning to image PDF at the default setting of dpi black-and-white at 35 ppm in simplex and Note that the rated speeds are based on the time spent just in scanning the pages, while our timings start when the scan command is sent and end when the processing is completed and the file is saved.
When I timed only the time actually spent scanning, it pretty much matched its rated scannre. The slower speeds were because of extra time in processing time before and after the scan. At dpi black-and-white, it took 2 minutes 1 second to scan the same page, image test file to searchable PDF.
HP ScanJet Enterprise Flow N Flatbed Scanner Review & Rating |
The default profile for scanning to searchable PDF is for dpi grayscale. Some, most notably Canon scanners, lose little or no time in the OCR phase. Although the N’s lag in scanning to searchable PDF is not unusual, it puts it well out of the top tier.
By default, the scanner is set to portrait mode, and we do our formal tests using default settings when possible, but as it can scan up to tabloid width, you can also insert letter-sized paper into the ADF in landscape mode.
It suggests in scannsr user guide that scanning in landscape mode could result in faster scans, so I put it to the test. Although it did show somewhat faster simplex speed, it slowed down considerably when I scanned in duplex, and its timing when scanning to searchable PDF was the same as when I scanned in portrait mode.
It scanned our Times New Roman test document without error down to 8 points and Arial with only one spacing error at six points. It did reasonably well on our less standard test fonts as well.

The Epson DS, rated at 40 ppm docujent 80 ipm for simplex and duplex, respectively, turned in simplex and duplex speeds of 31 ppm and 62 ipm. It scanned our test document to searchable PDF in 2: The Xerox is rated at 30 ppm simplex and 50 ipm duplex; in those modes, we timed it at 25 ppm and We timed it in scanning to searchable PDF at 1: The N is a capable machine, befitting its massive and bulky stature. It has a rich feature set, a tabloid-width ADF that can hold up to sheets, l2683z a tabloid-sized flatbed.
In our testing, it was slow for its rated speed in scanning to image PDF, and flxtbed particularly fast when scanning to searchable PDF. It doesn’t come cheap, and it’s more feature rich than many offices require, but businesses in need of its attributes should find that it’s worth the extra money.
Still, it has a good software suite, an abundance of workflow-friendly features, and the ability to scan large documents from either flatbed or ADF. That’s more than enough to keep many deep-pocketed offices happy.
