I've got a Lexmark X646E full duplex printing/scanner. I'm still learning
how to use it at its max, but I believe I'll scan TONS of documents I have
stored home as soon as I learn how to PROPERLY do that.
Interesting machine. Very cheap, but with a very fast ADF duplex scanner. I
just need to learn all the adjusts and fix the ADF rollers.
