The Strobe XP 450 PDF, the new multipurpose office scanner, features a 50 page Automatic Document Feeder and scans at a blazing fast 20 pages per minute in 200 dpi black and white mode. Imagine this thing going to work for business users who are buried in paper they need to scan and store quickly.
The Strobe XP 450 PDF attaches via a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface, which achieves data transfer rates up to 60Mbytes per second, 300% faster than Ultra SCSI scanners and 600% faster than SCSI-3 scanners. Eliminating the SCSI card makes installation simple and keeps the scanner affordable while achieving a higher data transfer rate.
