Sheetfed vs. Flatbed Scanner

Flatbed scanners (X73 & X83) have hinged lids under which you can scan photographs, single sheets of paper or 3D objects such as magazines, books, etc. A sheetfed scanner (X63) can feed multiple pages of standard size paper, and is best for multiple page faxes, copies or scans.

Fax Modem vs. Fax Software

The X63, with its internal 14.4k fax modem, has stand-alone black and colour fax, phone keypad for manual dial, speed dial, and many other ease-of-use fax features. The X73 and X83 use your PC’s modem, along with fax software (included with the All-In-Ones), which is best suited for lower volume faxing of the typical home or home office.

Space Saving Design

The X63, X73 and X83 all have a space saving design perfect for the home user. The X63 was designed specifically with a busy small office or home office in mind, with a compact size.
