Summary: I have had this scanner for about a month now, and I have scanned over 40 books with it without a flaw. It is so easy to use and fast. All scanning is done after setup by pressing buttons on the scanner, so I don't have to use mouse or keyboard for scanning like I do with my Epson 1650.
Summary: I ordered this scanner yesterday, received it today. Hooked it up to my desktop computer with no problems. Only loaded the device drivers and Action Express software, none of the other applications. As I use my own program to scan in yearbooks for my high school.
Worst Digital Tech I've Ever Purchased. Hands Downs.

Summary: Incomprehensible interface. Everything has to be reset with EVERY PAGE. Are you kidding me? Absolutely no customer support. And the "Help" section of the software seems to be copied/pasted from another program. And doesn't work with Adobe Products. And Mac won't recognize it at all.
Summary: I'm pleasantly surprised that the Mac Beta Software works so well on the first go around. My question though is why Epson and Canon among others have not targeted the Book Scanning Market like Plustek?
Summary: I bought this scanner hoping to use it with my Mac. The Mac OS is not listed under the system requirements, but since it's supposedly TWAIN compliant I assumed it would work with Apple's built-in Image Capture application.
Summary: I bought my scanner from Plustek about 3 years ago. After ~300 scans the lamp started having issues warming up. I would have to power off and on the Scanner numerous times before the lamp would fully warm up. I called Plustek support and arranged to have the scanner fixed under warranty.
Summary: Este scanner tiene una particularidad, además de la de poder escanear libros sin que le cree la mancha oscura en la unión del libro (en el medio), los botones son de un tamaño de muy fácil uso; en mi caso particular, me ahorra mucho tiempo el escaneo entre una hoja y otra, los escáneres...
Summary: I bought this scanner to scan texts onto my laptop in order to avoid lugging textbooks around every day. To that effect the scanner works as described. 9 months after purchase I developed a "hot spot" on the scanner sensor causing a bright streak to run down all of my scans.
Summary: Update to original review--I got my Opticbook Scanner repaired! Plustek tech support never did respond, so I wrote a dozen letters to every Plustek sales office I could find online, threatening a flood of adverse reviews, if they did not tell me how to get my Opticbook 3600 repaired.
