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'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: 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...
This is an outstanding scanner for book worms like me!!!

Summary: This book scanner OpticBook model 3600 is ideal on the budget minded researcher that often work with older books and bounded magazines dating as far back as 1865. Scanning older books are near impossible with any other scanner design because you have a margin of plastic surrounding the scanning...
Summary: I liked this scanner so much that I bought a second one. I've had both for more than three years. I've installed them on both Windows XP and Windows 2000 (English and Japanese versions). I have never had a scanner install and work so flawlessly.
Summary: If you've ever tried to scan from a book, as opposed to a flat piece of paper, then you know all the problems involved. This scanner is the perfect answer. No matter the size of the book or its thickness, you will get perfect scans with no problems.
Summary: I scan lots of books. The Optibook is designed specifically for scanning books. I have low vision and must scan all my books in order to have my computer read them to me. The Optibook is easy to set up and easy to operate. I love the quick push button format that quickly scan your book pages.
Summary: I sell books on Amazon and Ebay and this book scanner is absolutely an essential part of my book selling business! It's super easy to use and comes with great software (PhotoImpact). Plus, it's less stressful on books (especially the older ones) compared to regular scanners.
