Buyers Lab (BLI) is the global document imaging industry’s resource for unbiased and reliable information, test data and competitive selling tools. BLI Pick awards give special recognition to manufacturers and products that performed above their peers in their exhaustive lab tests. The semi-annual Pick awards (Summer and Winter) are chosen based on products tested within six-month periods, while the annual Pick awards (Winter or Fall) are chosen from products tested within a one-year period.
The Plustek SmartOffice PS3060U gave an outstanding performance during BLI’s grueling reliability test. Over two weeks, the device successfully scanned 20,000 documents without a single misfeed or malfunction. The experts at BLI rated the device “Highly Recommended” and gave it the “Outstanding A4 Mid-Size Workgroup Scanner” Pick award.
