Win 7 x64

  • Summary: I've owned this scanner for 3-4 years. The calibrating on startup is annoying, but I've learned to live with it. Had trouble installing it on a Win 7 x64 system, but finally got it working and since then it has worked flawlessly. The workaround was to manually export the original Registry settings to the Win 7 Registry. Maybe I'm the only one that had a problem installing. Scanner is slow compared to newer models, but the scan features are great.

Microtek Scanmaker i800

  • 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. The glass does appear to have some inside smudges, but since I scan mostly documents it hasn't been noticeable.

I wonder about reliability

  • Summary: I bought this scanner recently and a few days into the use, it stopped working. I tried everything to make it work. Suddenly, like magic...it started to work again. I don't know if this is isolated or widespread.

Microtek Flatbed Scanners

  • 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. It failed to recognize my computer and when I finally achieved a good scan it just stopped.

  • Excerpt: Сканер конкурирует с Epson 4990/700 по цене и функциям, но конкурирует лишь на бумаге. Например, пользоваться ПО с диска на win7х64 не выйдет, а свежая (2011 год) версия ПО (драйвер внутри) с сайта будет радовать крахами при переходе в Advanced режим. Далее, засунуть чуть-чуть искривленную пленку в холдер - задача не реальная. Только пара стекол с неньютоновским покрытием и сканить весь планшет и потом вырезать.
  • Pros: Низкая по сравнению с аналогами цена, добротная упаковка, Photoshop Elements 8 и Finereader OCR в коробке.
  • Cons: Не удобные рамки EZ-Lock, не обновляющиеся драйверы и ПО, проблемы с современными ОС, маркетинговые заманухи.

  • Summary: Ich habe den Scanner vor einem Monat in der Version mit Silverfast SE gekauft. Das Gerät ist sauber verarbeitet, leider sieht man auf dem Hochglanzteil des Deckels jedes Staubkorn. Die Scharniere könnten etwas stabiler sein und deren Federn etwas kräftiger. Es sieht aber nicht so aus, als würde gleich auseinanderfallen.
