I still use the scanner of a "all in printer" that doesn't print anymore. Has been scanning a page in 30 sec more or less during years, but now is getting longer the longer I use it at once. If I have to scan 20 pages the first one is 30 sec or so as it has always been, but the last ones are over 3 minutes. What it is already annoying me pretty much.

As I am thinking anyways in an "office" (actually private usage + some gaming) upgrade next year, I will probably send the old devices to recycle.

I have seen there are "by pass" scanners, where the scanning lense is fixed and the pages get through (as in printers), some specs I have read say around 15 pages pro minute.

Any experiences over there with such things? Do you think better the ones where the light / lense move?

My scan usage is mostly for documents and pictures but in non-professional expectations. Mostly use 300dpi (sometimes 600dpi, very, very seldom something higher). I just want it to be reliable and if possible not over-priced.

If you are happy with your device I would like to ask you: what do you use? I'll check them up.

Thank you in advance

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
