  • Conclusion: The Plustek OpticBook 3800 lets you easily scan books or other bound material, minimizing distortion and shadow artifacts,though its scan quality wasn't particularly impressive.
  • Pros: Lets you scan a book page to the edge of the spine. Software eliminates distortion and shadow artifacts, and lets you automatically rotate facing pages. Also scans documents and photos.
  • Cons: Mediocre scan quality. Lacks an automatic document feeder (ADF). Can't scan pages larger than A4 size.

Plustek OpticBook 3800 review

3 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Plustek OpticBook 3800 is best for scanning books or other printed matter with thick spines, though it also offers added convenience when scanning magazines or other bound material. It can be used for document and photo scanning as well, though its lack of an ADF effectively limits it to short documents.
  • Pros: Great for scanning books, Software helps reduce any distortion, Impressive OCR performance
  • Cons: Mediocre scan quality, Lacks an automatic document feeder, Can't scan pages larger than A4 size

  • Excerpt: Plustek's OpticBook 3800 scanner doesn't look particularly innovative or interesting, and its appearance can be politely described as functional. The control panel is simplicity itself, with four buttons, three of them (all very generously proportioned) allocated to colour, grayscale and black and white scanning.
