The ScanJet Pro 2500 isn't designed for very heavy or departmental use: the ADF's 50-page capacity and 1,500-page per day maximum duty rating are plenty for home or small office users, but clearly not up to the demands of volume scanning. All the same, it's nicely made, with stiff hinges that prevent the scanner lid and ADF crashing down onto the platen, and which extend upwards by a couple of centimetres so the lid can still close flat on thick originals.The front of the platen glass lies slightly above the surrounding plastic, so it's easy to collect original documents by sliding them towards you. Just below there's a control panel with customisable shortcut buttons for common scan types, while the back has ports for the USB connection and power supply.I performed our regular scan tests, before moving on to multi-page tests using the ADF. In our regular tests, I was disappointed to find that thicker originals like photo prints can still slide under the bezel as you push them into place. Likewise, pages passing through the ADF sound as though their leading edge is being scraped along the lining.However, the mechanism coped without a hitch, even with thin and nasty magazine pages - until, that is, I tried to capture 10 postcard-sized photos in landscape orientation: after several mis-feeds, I discovered that portrait orientation worked fine.
