Summary: I've had a 3800 plus scanner for some time. The short story is that I love the hardware, but hate the software. I'm a senior IT developer and the Plustek Windows software looks (and acts) like it was developed by a pimply 13 year old hacker.
Summary: I started having problems after the 3rd scan. The build quality and performance of the scanner itself is pretty good. Color pictures don't look very good, but that's not it's intended purpose. The software, however, is aweful.
Summary: So far I had a bad experience with this scanner, I was trying to scan a few chapters for my school text book and the color was off and it was blurry so I decided to return it back and get my full refund.
Summary: The scanner arrived a few minutes ago, and when I opened the package I was shocked to discover it is a used scanner. All the cables are unwrapped, twist-ties loose in the bag, paper band warning of need to unwrap folded up and in bag, etc..
Summary: The scanner itself is fine, provided it is on an absolutely level surface (otherwise it will freeze and produce a "scree" sound until you manually turn it off). What it has over other scanners is how close the scanner bed is to the side, so that you can scan books along the spine without having to...
Summary: Nachdem ich die durchaus durchwachsenen Rezensionen zu diesem zugegebenermaßen sehr günstigen Gerät gelesen hatte war ich zunächst sehr positiv überrascht: Es gibt sogar eine Software für meinen Mac.
Summary: A deux reprises, j'ai installé les logiciels à partie du C D, mais je n'ai pu accéder au scanner. Soit les logiciels de gestion de pages sont de trop grande portée (ambition)et veulent gérer toutes mes créations, alors que ce nouveau scanner n'est, somme toute, qu'additionnel.
