Design and Size

As usual with our reviews, the first thing to talk about in this Kodak i2420 review article will be its design and size.

Design and size wise, the Kodak i2420 is an excellent scanner for small home offices. It comes in black, is very compact, and can sit on a shared desk comfortably. But despite its size, it is quite the mighty scanner with its 75-page ADF that is capable of handling up to 5,000 pages a day scanning.


While not blazingly fast like its competitors, the Kodak i2420 is definitely fast for a scanner scoring at 40ppm (simplex) and 80 ppm (duplex) scanning. But as with many other scanners that are in its price range, the Kodak i2420 slows down a bit when scanning into searchable PDF format.

It’s not that significant in the grand scheme of things, but it’s definitely noticeable as you use it.

Clarity and accuracy wise, the Kodak i2420 is an absolute winner. You can confidently count on Kodak i2420 to be able to read even through some of the tiniest texts available out there.

One of the strongest points of the i2420 that would be amiss to not talk in this Kodak i2420 review article is definitely its software suite.

If you’re familiar with the Kodak Alaris, the Kodak i2420 essentially packs the same program suite except that it’s now updated and polished.

Its Nuance PaperPort14 and OmniPage 18 are two of the best document management and OCR software in the market, so you will definitely enjoy scanning with Kodak i2420 with these programs.

And similar with other Kodak scanners as well, the installation or setup process for the i2420 is quite simple and easy to follow and you should be able to scan your documents within minutes of setup.

So, what is the take away from this Kodak i2420 review?

As you can probably guess from the title alone, the Kodak i2420 is a very good all-rounder for most offices that don’t require the fastest scanner available out there. It comes with duplex, a sizeable ADF, and top-tier programs.

Its speed can’t really compare with the likes of Canon’s imageFormula series, but that’s not nearly enough to be a dealbreaker for this scanner as its way cheaper than them.

Which means if you just need a solid reliable scanner that’s fast, small, easy to use and set up, and cheap, the Kodak i2420 is an amazing bang for your buck and you will find your scanning needs way less arduous than before with its programs.
