Microtek Scanmaker i800

Texas Boy, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned this scanner for 5 years. Started off with WinXP. When upgrading to Win7 x64, it wouldn't work. Contacted tech support who said it could not run with Win7 x64. Made it work with Win7 x64 by manually inputting the registry entries. Has worked flawlessly for the last 3 years.

Really bad tech support

  • Summary: I have had the i800 for three years and on many occassions it has stopped working and caused all my USB ports to freeze. I have installed it on a Dell, a compaq, an Asus, an MSI, and an EVGA motherboard. If I have the scanner plugged in then none of my USB ports work.
  • Pros: price
  • Cons: Software Tech support

Flatbed Scanner

William E. Olson, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: I purchased the Microtek ScanMaker i800 flatbed scanner over a year ago and am well pleased with it. The main reason for purchase was that this scanner would scan negative and positive films up to 8 by 12 in in size, which it does very well.

Disappointed! Out of focus slides and PAINFULLY slow scan times!

MG1, Amazon
29 April 2009
  • Summary: I recently purchased the ScanMaker i800 to scan about 1,000 family slides from the 60s and 70s. I thought I could tackle the task at hand easily by scanning 12 slides at a time. Well, just about every slide I scanned comes out extremely soft and way out of focus.

Awesome scanner

D. Barker, Amazon
29 April 2009
  • Summary: This is an excellent scanner -- works like a charm. The only caution I have is to put the most basic of the packaged software in as it is the only one that allows the front buttons on it to operate. It's also freakin' HUGE! Does 8x14 paper, and up to 8x10 transparency scans -- excellent quality!

Microtek Flatbed Scanners

Mark Salatsky, Amazon
29 April 2009
  • Summary: Please Note: I purchased a somewhat different model - 6100 Pro - over 1 year ago. I was unhappy with the purchase from the onset and have subsequently purchased a Canon 8400F ... a great scanner. The Microtek took very good scans from photos and film (35 mm slides). However, it rarely worked.

Lousy printed instructions

Buddha, Amazon
29 April 2009
  • Summary: I have yet to get this scanner working. Granted I have not spent more than a day working on it but it is not intuitive. I have e-mailed Microtek with several questions (you cannot contact them any other way) and have received a response advising me to look at several downloads on their website.
