3.weight

7.8kg

10.21kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.width

440mm

468.12mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.thickness

400mm

393.7mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
6.height

180mm

199.9mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Scan quality

1.maximum scan size

215.9 x 355.6mm²

215.9 x 355.6mm²

Maximum scan size shows maximum dimensions of the scanned document.
2.optical scan resolution

1200 x 1200dpi

1200 x 1200dpi

The highest resolution the scanner can put out without using software to make it bigger. In dots per inch.
3.bit depth grayscale

8bit

16bit

Bit depth means the number of bits per pixel, so the higher the bit depth, the greater number of grayscales the system can scan.
4.bit depth color

24bit

48bit

Bit depth means the number of bits per pixel, so the higher the bit depth, the greater number of colors the system can scan.
