Get a NeatDesk document scanner for $249.99 | The Cheapskate - CNET News.
I have a love-hate relationship with NeatDesk. I love the document scanner, and have one next to my computer, both at home and at the office. I scan everything: receipts, correspondence, pleadings, contracts, you name it, and I then have a digital copy stored. I love being able to open any client's folder, and have copies of everything connected to the client, in pdf format, ready for printing, emailing or whatever. I hate the NeatDesk software, however. It is slow, clunky, buggy, and, IMHO, unusable. However, it is a Twain compatible scanner, which means it works with PaperPort software, which is the best file organizer I have found. Now, with a refurbished NeatDesk scanner available for $250 ($125 under retail), this is a no brainer purchase if you are looking for a competent desktop scanning solution. With the money you save, you can buy a copy of PaperPort 14, and be scanning in no time.
