Summary: I've had this scanner for years. It works everytime I need it and as expected. The resolution is plenty for documents and non-artistic photos. If you need a simple scanner that just works I highly recommend this one.
Summary: Connect the USB cable, plug the power cord in, run the installation software and you are ready to go. The performance is flawless and the results are very good. Easy to use and great results. What more could you ask for?
Summary: I have a web site that is all about my cats. My mom has this real old Plustek Skanner, and I was going to use it to make a sketches section in my site, but when I scanned my first sheet, two things went wrong. 1. VERY slow. 2. When I saw the sheet, there was blue and pink and green everywhere.
Summary: I have not really used other scanners, so I cannot say for sure that a more expensive scanner would not have more features or be better in some other way. But what I can say is that I am very pleased with my Canoscan 3000 EX.
Summary: I was looking for something that I could use to scan personal documents. I ran across a write-up on this scanner in the electronic version of PC Mag. I figured, "why not?" For the price, you can't beat it. Even if it turns out to be a bad choice it's only $50.00, right?
Excerpt: You can Canon , und dieser Slogan ist Bezeichnend für Canon. Gekauft habe ich meinen CanoScan 3000ex im Elektrogroßhandel um 119 Euro, aber schon vor über einem Jahr. Somit kann ich schon auf einige "Testkilometer", eingescannt.
Pros: Guter Flachbett - Scanner für schmale Geldbörsel .
