No question, HP’s ScanJet Pro N4000 snw1 is a terrific midrange scanner for small offices and workgroups. Like its many competitors, including our Best of 2021 winner the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1600 and its fellow Editors’ Choice recipient the Epson RapidReceipt RR-600W, this ScanJet is relatively fast, scans in highly accurate fashion, and supports plenty of connectivity options. Everything is required for a four-star review recommendation, right? Right. Unfortunately for it, competition among low- to medium-volume sheetfed document scanners is formidable to the point of cutthroat; the Fujitsu and Epson earned our rare 4.5-star rating. The HP isn’t really inferior—it’s a great document scanner for most midrange applications—but it narrowly misses Editors’ Choice honors.
