Fast. Warmup too slow for small jobs.

James Peter Hill, Amazon
25 February 2015
  • Summary: Seems to work ok. It scans pretty fast, but warmup takes a while - fine if you do multiple pages, but not convenient for small, every day jobs. There is still a 1/4" inch or so area at the edge that can't be scanned.

Good scanner but manufacturing issues

Markus, Amazon
29 April 2014
  • Summary: The scanner did install without any issues on Windows 7. I want to note that it requires a pretty long (~1min) warm-up period so the color temperature of the Cold Cathode lamps is controlled. Unfortunately they aren't using LEDs in this model.

Not perfect but entirely adequate for my purposes.

rpsmithbarney, Ebay
19 May 2013
  • Summary: Had to return the first one for an exchange as the scanner glass has dust particles attached to the underside. There's no way to clean this without disassembly. Shipper was flawless in arranging for a replacement unit. The software leaves a lot to be desired.

Plustek 3800 Opticbook

CEA, Adorama
24 November 2012
  • Excerpt: takes a while to warm up and the contrast is not very dark, I have to adjust the gamma and brightness to appropriate levels for good contrast, bit of a pain but easily done. Scans right up to the edge of a book page to within about a half inch totally flat with no distortion.
  • Pros: Good Resolution
  • Cons: Slow

  • Summary: You won't find a cheaper book scanner for bound materials works well enough for most of us.
  • Pros: Good for bound materials, cost
  • Cons: Utility needs work, lots of work

Plustek Optibook 3800

T. Counley, Amazon
7 July 2012
  • Summary: The item was delivered within the time specified and was as described in the 'blurb'. I found that the multi-language instructions cumbersome as they are printed in a single column for each language on one very large sheet of paper which had to be fully opened to read.

El escaner esta bien, el softwer no muy intuitivo

Francisco Javier Morales López, amazon.es
3 September 2012
  • Summary: De momento no lo he probado del todo: pero a primera vista y tras haber escaneado y pasado a ocr el tema de un libro, el tiempo total es muy bueno, tarda poco en hacer la pasada de la lampara por la totalidad de la página, pero la interfaz USB tarda en enviar los datos del escáner (tengo uno muy...

oui mais....

tictac "lagonnette", Amazon
30 August 2012
  • Summary: scanner de très bonne qualité , le seul bemol que je trouve, c'est que ce n'est pas 8mm comme annoncé mais 11mm entre le centre du livre et ce que le scanner va couvrir, donc si vous ne voulez pas abimer un livre de poche, il vous faut le 4800 qui lui a que 4 mm. Donc très déçu de ce coté..

Esta bien para escanear libros

Manuel, amazon.es
19 August 2012
  • Summary: Para escanear libros es sobresaliente, muy sencillo y rápido. Sin embargo la calidad de escaneo en color es regular, aparecen algunos efectos de color espúreos en el escaneo a alta resolución de postales en color.

Und Täglich grüß das Murmeltier

Bauer Henriques, Amazon
25 December 2011
  • Summary: Und täglich güßt das Murmeltier. Es ist nicht mein erster Plustekscanner, und deshalb wollte ich das Gerät auch nicht kaufen, Aber Buchscanner gibt es nicht viele, es gibt zb. noch Microtek, aber die Hompage von denen ist nur auf englisch und nach langem Nachfragen erfuhr ich dass der die Seiten nur...
