Excerpt: (1 items) Epson’s Perfection V30 is an inexpensive flatbed scanner that boasts an optical resolution of 4800 dpi and 48-bit colors. It isn’t the fastest scanner we’ve seen (nor does it produce the best image quality), but the V30 offers a terrific balance of quality, speed and value. The V30 is just 1.6 inches thick and weighs less than 5 lbs. It connects to your Mac via USB 2.0 and requires an external power supply.
Pros: 180-degree lid for scanning books, photo albums, and other objects, Overall impressive image quality
