ScanMaker i700 works well but is extremely slow

buyerhalf2002, Ebay
5 July 2010
  • Summary: I only used the USB interface because I do not have FireWire. The scanner works well and will scan at high resolutions. The ScanWizard software is useful after it is switched to the advanced interface rather than the default basic interface. The only major problem with the scanner is the extremely slow scan speed, especially at high resolutions.

Slow and problematic

Philip Roberts, Amazon
27 March 2008
  • Summary: We have had a Microtek Scanmaker i800 for several years. It has great color and D-max. BUt we needed a doc feeder. So we bought this model, assuming a somewhat similar quality and speed would be encountered. WRONG! This unit has a constant banding issue (rainbow stripes appx. 0.5" from the feed edge) and is very slow for an ADF unit.

Vista Users - RUN AWAY!

Dean Zimmermann "Dean Zimmermann", Amazon
8 September 2007
  • Summary: If you just upgraded your computer and it's running Microsoft Vista, go look at a different brand of scanner. I made the mistake of buying this one just before upgrading to Vista, and after months of promises of Vista drivers from Microtek, they've recently decided not to provide Vista drivers for this one.

Shoddy hardware/software integration

Scanner, Amazon
9 March 2006
  • Summary: We purchased this product with the expectation of using the automatic document feeder to scan and store documents. We have two other scanners but none with a document feeder. After fiddling with the scanner for hours, and after more than an hour with Micro-tek technical support, we were informed that the Macintosh software controlling the document feeder was defective with no date for any fixes.
