A Solid Price For a Solid Piece of Equipment

Kelsarath, Amazon
26 June 2015
  • Summary: I'm a hobbyist illustrator who occasionally does some commission work, normally I use 11x17 paper or larger for finished pieces and this scanner is exactly what I wanted. The five stars aren't because this is the "best" scanner I've ever had but rather, because it is an over-sized scanner at a...

  • Summary: I usually don't write reviews, but after what I just went through with this product a review is in order. I had the scanner for about eight months and it stopped working, after call tech help at Mustek and connecting and reconnecting, uninstalling drivers and installing drivers, it still would not...

  • Summary: I struggled for weeks to try to install this scanner (and I'm a tech!). Finally, the software was installed... Then I tried to use it. Although some aspects of the scanner software would work (PDF conversion, for example), the scanning portion said "Error While Scanning.

I don't think this was a good purchase for me

jones, Amazon
29 April 2015
  • Summary: Purchased this to scan larger images, and it worked for a little while, but within a couple months, it started sticking when I previewed or scanned images. Now it also has streaks in the scans and is lighter in one corner than the other. I don't think this was a good purchase for me.

A great value (when I bought it) and it works very well.

SoCal John, Amazon
2 April 2015
  • Summary: I bought a Mustek large-bed scanner several years ago and returned it. I can't remember why, but I think it was because the software didn't work properly. But I have continued to feel the need for a large-bed scanner to scan the gazillion photo albums I have, especially after I got an estimate to...

Piece of Junk!

Poncho, Amazon
8 February 2015
  • Summary: After reading the mixed reviews, I decided to give it a chance and purchase the scanner. Straight out of the box, it didn't work at all. Won't power up. Even after reading the review about checking for loose cables, which I checked and didn't find any, it still won't work. Shipping it back tomorrow.

Beware! Zero After-Purchase Support!

HokiAddict, Amazon
24 January 2015
  • Summary: The scanner has so far performed OK for me. However, the scanner does not show up within my OS X Photoshop CS6 Import function as I had expected. Trying to get a response from Mustek's support by email or by phone and expecting any response at all is a Mustek (pronounced mis-take).

Only lasted a year

Maria V., Amazon
9 January 2015
  • Summary: When it worked, the hardware was fine. The software was pretty miserable and had huge compatibility issues with my Mac. Barely worked with my PC. The scanner worked for a year and then it completely died on me, which is really not acceptable.

William Klipp, Amazon
26 December 2014
  • Summary: Needed a large format scanner this did the trick but the software and user interface is poor and I was never able to fully use the functionality of the software as it's not current or compatible with many new operating systems.

Good value for the low price; don't be afraid to open it up if it doesn't move.

J. Perona, Amazon
25 December 2014
  • Summary: Can't beat the price on this large format scanner. Here's some technical advice: 1) Do go to Mustek.com and download and install the latest drivers BEFORE you plug in the USB cable between the PC and scanner.
