(use less desk space, e.g. 6.7” depth compared with 15.9” for 15” CRT)

(less radiation)

(very expensive)

The top three are Flatbed Scanners. There exist hand-held/card scanners.

*: There are multifunction systems for Small Office Home office (SOHO)

(including fax, color printing, color copying, and color scanning functions)

that can perform color scan on individual sheet.
