Drivers a battle, but low cost wins the day

larsw8837, Ebay

  • Summary: Mustek drivers sometimes can be hard to find, not available for Linux or klunky to use. The A3-1200S series: does it include the ScanExpress A3 USB 1200 Pro? Probably a distinction without a difference. Mustek-USA took down the nice XP driver, but there it is, still on the Mustek-Deutchland site.

Very good ... For only a brief moment

AnonDrPeeb "DrPeeb", Amazon

  • 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.

Tech Support is non-existant

  • 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.

  • 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.

Pleased

Mark Smith, Amazon

  • 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.

Glad that I upgraded

Church Sexton, Amazon
10 February 2012
  • 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.

Good product. Be sure your computer is TWAIN compatible.

jamesmontgomery29501, Ebay
7 February 2012
  • Summary: I was looking for a large scanner and this one seemed to fit the bill and the price was certainly affordable. I did some research on the model online, but the one source of information that I did not get was that this is an older model and could only be used by software that had TWAIN capability.

You get what you pay for

Colleen Boye, Amazon
8 August 2011
  • 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.

Two Dead Musteks in Six Months

Jennie Chancey, Amazon
1 March 2011
  • 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.
