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'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: 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. For the price, it performs all basic scanning functions simply, quickly, and efficiently. The quality of the output is extremely good. It is very easy to use. I did not have to look at the instruction manual.
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. I then started looking on ebay for a good scanner. I checked best buy. Then I checked wal-mart. Wal-mart had a really nice scanner on there web site. $48. I then read some reviews.
Summary: hatte beim Scanner ursprünglich übersehen, dass er "für Selbstabholer" ausgeschrieben war..konnte mich jedoch mit VerkauferIn schnell einigen, das eine Ausnahme gemacht wird - und so war dieser Kauf der schnellste Ebay-Einkauf, der bei mir zu Hause ankam!!! Er war ausgezeichnet verpackt mit Hinweisen zum "entsichern". Und seine Funktionalität ist ausgezeichnet! Also, genau das, was ich brauche! Schönen Dank noch einmal an alle Beteiligten!
