When we wrote up our NeatDesk review a couple months ago, we didn't expect to be an impressed as we were - we had to include it in our 2010 Holiday Gift Guide. Seriously, if you know someone who wants to go all digital and paperless, or someone that just wants to be better organized with their documents, receipts, and business cards, you should consider the NeatDesk. Available both for Mac and PC, the NeatDesk scanner combines with the NeatWorks software (included) to give you one of the most powerful document scanning and organization tools we've ever seen. They normally retail for $500, but Amazon's get the PC version for $358 and the Mac version for $383.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve got tons of paper sitting around that would be better served being scanned into your computer and kept in some sort of document management system, rather than in piles around the house or on your desk. A couple of weeks ago, we got the NeatDesk for Mac Desktop Scanner system in for review. The NeatDesk (available on Amazon) is really more than just a scanner, since it also includes the NeatWorks document management software, which in and of itself claims to do a lot, and works with a bunco of other scanners as well (you can buy NeatWorks software on its own.) When the scanner arrived, we were excited to give it a try…but that feeling soon turned to impending doom. If this thing was anything like the NeatReceipts scanner we’ve been using for the past couple of years, it meant that we’d be in for a day full of long, slow scans. You know what? We couldn’t have been more wrong.
