Vertical scan lines - corner of picture gets caught
27 January 2013
Summary: I purchased this scanner in order to help me scan a ton of family photos quickly and without the need for a computer. This scanner has been almost perfect in every way except for 2 issues. Another reviewer mentioned the existence of vertical lines on his photos, well I experienced the exact same thing, and to make matters worse, I didn't discover it until after I had scanned about 50 pictures because the vertical lines don't show up well on the mini display of the...
Summary: I'm sorry to say, but this scanner put vertical lines all over my scans. I settled on this Mustek scanner after spending hours upon hours researching to find the best sheetfed scanner. I couldn't find *anything* under $200 without any notable issues (such as vertical lines). However, i did read that some people exchanged their product and found that their issues were due to product defects.
Summary: I find this unit very convenient and lightweight, no software or anything to install. I was thoroughly impressed on how easy it was to use. The image quality itself is great and just for what I need. If you are using this to scan high-resolution photos, you are looking in the wrong place. This is for scanning documents quickly, perfect for scanning contracts or legal papers. This is currently being used in our office for end of day reports at a chemical company.
Summary: This is the best product on the market. If you are going through old photo albums at relatives houses and want to scan them as fast as you can feed the pictures through the scanner then this is your product. What makes it different from all other scanners out there is it is stand alone! No computer is necessary! It has its own screen to show you the image. It is simple and easy to use.
