What Inner Child Does Not Have: Duplex Document Scanner

inner child computer systemOctober is Inner Child Computer System’s 8th month in operation and I can say that it is still doing good.

Tempus fugit.

A few months more and we’ll be celebrating our first year anniversary. It feels like we’ve only been around for a couple of months. I can still even remember the opening day, we’re not even ready with all the games (until now.)

Inner Child Services

The Internet / LAN shop offers the following services:

  • Computer rentals
  • Internet surfing
  • Chat
  • Online games
  • LAN Games
  • Printing (documents)
  • Photo Printing
  • Desktop publishing / layouting
  • CD Burn
  • Typing and Research
  • Office supplies

What we don’t currently have though is scanning services or a duplex document scanner for document or photo scanning.

Types of Scanner

For everyone’s information (and I’m sure you guys know about this already), there are many types of scanner. Here is a small list:

  • Flatbed scanner – this is the most common of them all. It looks like small photo copier (xerox machines)
  • Sheetfed scanner – if flatbet can be compared to a xerox machines, sheetfed is for fax machines.
  • Slide scanner – this dedicated scanner is used for small (35mm) slides.
  • Drum scanner – this is the most high-end choice. It uses photomultiplier tubes (PMTs)

What we’re planning to purchase is the flatbed type. Aside from it’s the most common scanner (for both home and LAN shop use) it’s the cheapest and gets the job done.

Anyway, I’m not familiar with the other type anyway.

The Duplex Document Scanner

And so, with all that intro, we come to the main topic – the ScanShell 3000DN.

The ScanShell 3000DN is a duplex document scanner. This device offers the following features and benefits:

  • Standard USB 2.0 interface
  • Recognized by Windows ME, 2000, XP and Vista
  • Lightweight and portable
