Very good ... For only a brief moment

Summary: I was able to scan 160 11x17 drawings just fine ... then the scan results became crazy red & blue streaks & patterns & blobs, sometimes vertical black lines about an inch apart from top to bottom all they way from side-to-side. Almost seems like it needs to warm up, but never does.
Summary: Granted I bought this scanner 3 years ago, and it's not very sophisticated, but has functioned properly, until recently when PhotoShop stopped recognizing the scanner. Just stopped. I tried reinstalling my driver software several times.
No Update Available for New Mac....will not work with a new computer!!!!

Summary: I loved this scanner until I recently got a new Apple computer, now it doesn't work. They say there is not update for this scanner until Taiwan decides . Great, I have to use my older computer to use the scanner? Not acceptable.
Summary: We went with this for the price tag, and have not been disappointed, in fact we bought a few more for the other offices. The interface is simple, easy to install. It's a nice reliable machine we have been using now for more than 6yrs.
Summary: I'm a Mac user and this is my third Mustek A3 scanner and, as with the previous 2 scanners, I'm very happy with the scan quality. The first two scanners each lasted until changes in computer ports or operating systems made the old scanner useless, at least two years.
Summary: This is the only affordable scanner wider than 8 1/2", but don't expect much out of it. The focal distance, value balance (exacerbated by the black background), and abominable software will all give you headaches, and don't expect any help from the tech support or documentation.
Summary: Needing a large format scanner but put off by the insane prices of other models, I laid out the money for the Mustek ScanExpress. The first one worked for about four months before dying, and it wasn't from overuse. In total, we scanned about 200 images on the thing before it kicked the bucket.
Summary: I have to admit I was skeptical about buying this since I never heard of this company and also because of the incredibly low price. I scan large fashion figure drawings and then rework them on the computer. So far it has done the job very well. A bit noisy; but, then, so am I at times.
Great Price Value, Mac Compatible, Some Initial Photoshop Difficulties

Summary: In general I am very pleased with this scanner. I needed a scanner that could scan 11x17 tabloid-size images, and no one is making those anymore at reasonable prices. When I received the scanner and connected it, I was confused about why I could not get Photoshop to recognize it.
