Re: RE:OT- Scanners

Just out of curiosity, are you planning to eliminate your paper file storage completely and go to electronic files, AKA the "paperless office" we've been hearing about for a couple of decades (although not recently)? 

If so do you consider this to be a dependable long-term way to more-or-less "permanently" maintain your files? 

I have a large storage locker that's largely dedicated to storing 15+ years worth of *all* of my business files, at some expensive, and sometimes wonder if there isn't a better way to do it.  I can't even think about what I would do if I wanted to move out of the area.  :(

I am looking to buy a document scanner in order to scan all my
calculations into a pdf format so I can free up shelf space.  I am
looking at the following three scanners (with 50 page automatic feed)
available at the local Frys store:

Xerox Documate 510
HP Scanjet 7650
Microtek Scanmaker 5950 Pro

I am interested in hearing about your experience (there is some
discussion of the Xerox Documate 510 on the CNET site) with any of the
above three scanners or any other automatic feed scanners you may be

Thank you all in advance.
