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...
I struggled for weeks to try to install this scanner ...

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.
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.
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.
I ended up having to buy a Windows laptop to work with the scanner and it worked beautifully. Just do your research and do not t

Summary: When it says it works on MAC, it means older MAC. The TWAIN drivers in the new MAC's does not allow the scanner software to work from the MAC. Before you buy it check the web for discussions that pertain to this scanner and MAC's. This is why I gave it three stars.

Summary: I have been using this type of scanner since 2011 for scanning art, and I bought the A3 1200S when my old scanner began to lose its quality. This new model is wonderful - it produces a very crisp, clear image that is very large.

Summary: 1) If you have a Mac (I'm on OS X 10.7.5) you can use the CD to install the software, just follow the printed directions. I was unable to get the online version to install. 2) When you're all plugged in and ready to go, there is no light on the scanner to indicate it's on. Trust that it is.
Doesn't Replicate Color Accurately, but OK for Scanning Large-Format Images

Summary: I don't normally write reviews because I'm a little lazy, but I feel compelled to write my thoughts because I really researched long and hard before buying this scanner and I hope I can help someone. I've had this scanner about 3 months or so. I wish I could give this product 3.5 stars to be honest.
Summary: Bottom line: gets the job done- but grudgingly. I recently purchased a Mustek A3 1200s HS scanner to make the job of scanning old family photo album pages easier. Due to scanner-bed size constraints on my tried and trusty Canon CanoScan LiDE 600F, I had been needing to do 2 scans per page and then...
