Summary: We are a very small business and $700 for a scanner is a hefty chunk of change. The Kodak i1210 has a great page per minute ratio, and seemed like a wise investment for the large scanning project we had coming up.
Cons: The copies are the poorest quality that I have seen on a number of scanners. Try high quality and you will wish you never set it for that. The high quality is worse than the low quality. How can that be?
Great for photos but if the glass gets dirty, it will cause streaks and lines.

Summary: I bought this scanner primarily to scan about 4000 4x6 photographs. I did extensive research and even though this scanner is a little old, I decided it was the best one for the job and my budget. I paid about $120 for it used.
Summary: Not all of the software required to use this scanner effectivly came in the box. I was having problems using it until I found the sheet that told me to how to download the software for the scanner.
Summary: We purchased this scanner as a replacement to an older model that was SCSI connected. We already had software in place for the paper capture/character recognition so that was not really considered in deciding on the purchase. We have since found this scanner to perform the functions perfectly.
If you gotta scan a few suitcases full of misc pictures. This is your scanner!

Summary: First off this scanner does not make the best scan quality of the flatbed scanners I have and do currently use. However I cannot jam an inch thick pile of different sized photos into any other document feeder hand have the scanner (nearly without fail) feed and scan every picture perfectly.
Summary: i gave this scanner 4/5 stars because i bought it used and didn't get the software it should include in the original packaging. the scanner is very fast (up to 45ppm on A4*grayscale) it have all the basic function for handling the image (autocrop,auto-deskew,auto-rotate) it has pre-defined...
Summary: I have owned this scanner for several years. I have scanned literally thousands of pictures and clippings for clients. Using this scanner makes my work so much faster and easier that it isnt funny! Simply feed up to 15 pics at a time in its hopper and let it go.
Summary: If I had to do it all over again, I would buy exactly this same product. Oh yes... Oh yes... 64 bit worthy and their tech support spends an unlimited amount of time with you over the phone for free.
Pros: The i1210 allows you to place a stack of papers or photos in the slot and it scans them all unattended while you do other stuff. Lots of features like auto straighten, or tweak the first scan and run the rest with those settings. My HP Scanjet 3c died 1/4 the way through my photo albums project. ...
Cons: Aside from being expensive, the only problem I have had is that items smaller than a 1.5" edge cant be grabbed and pulled into the scanner but that can be worked around.
