Conclusion: The Plustek OpticBook 3600 can scan loose pages, including photos, but it does its best work with books. Special-purpose software takes some of the work out of scanning book pages, and the design effectively eliminates the shadow that typically shows up on the spine edge of a book page.
Pros: Offers special features for scanning pages from books. OCR is fully automatic and works well for scanning from both books and other sources.
Cons: No ADF. Photo scanning lacks features like dust removal and color restoration. Photos aren't as sharp as they should be for the scan resolution.
