Plustek OpticBook 4600 review

4 August 2008
  • Summary: The Plustek OpticBook 4600 handled OCR work very nicely, but for PDFs and other image scans you may have to invest a fair amount of time and manual labour to obtain pristine copies. That drawback, coupled with the Plustek's high price, makes the OptiBook 4600 a somewhat dubious choice. Its value will be greatest for people who plan to use its book-scanning capabilities extensively.

Review: Plustek OpticBook 4600 Scanner

9 June 2008
  • Conclusion: The scanner is really nice and it produces really great scans. If you are a student or librarian or anyone else that makes a lot of scans or copies of books, then this scanner could save you a lot of time and money. It is small enough to take with you to the library and big enough to copy all the books you need. The OpticBook 4600 is going to be the most expensive of the OpticBook lineup. I was told that the MSRP for the OpticBook 4600 is $899.

REVIEW: Plustek OpticBook 4600

19 August 2009
  • Conclusion: If you intend to purchase the OpticBook 4600 for an organisation, it’s an easy way to get scanned files onto a hard drive, portable storage media or e-mailed as a searchable PDF. It also has a smaller footprint compared to a photocopier and thus optimises space, making it ideal for small to medium-sized libraries and school libraries. Our only major gripe is the price, which we feel isn’t at all justified by its overall performance or features.

Plustek OpticBook 4600

30 June 2009
  • Summary: Оцифровка книг и журналов — одна из наиболее часто решаемых с помощью сканера или МФУ задач. Выпускаются также специализированные устройства для данной цели. Однако, как правило, это весьма дорогие и громоздкие аппараты, которые вряд ли ­сможет приобрести обычная библиотека. Правда, в последнее время стали появляться и более доступные устройства для сканирования книг, практически не наносящие ущерба их состоянию. Одно из них — Plustek OpticBook 4600.
  • Pros: Высокое быстродействие, хорошо продуманная конструкция, ­низкий уровень шума.
  • Cons: ПО приема изображений может показаться сложным и неудобным в обращении, сопутствующие приложения не локализованы, работает только с Windows, стоимость подставки завышена.

Plustek OpticBook 4600

Komputer for alle
17 November 2008
  • Summary: Ifølge producenten er Plustek OpticBook 4600 fremstillet specielt til at skanne bøger. Målgruppen er biblioteker og lignende, hvor skannere mange steder har afløst kopimaskiner. Det der gør, at skanneren er velegnet til at skanne bøger er, at låget kan løftes højt og eventuelt tages helt af så der kan placeres en bog på skannerens glasplade. Plustek OpticBook 4600 kan skanne i 48 bit farvedybde og i en opløsning 1200 dpi, så specifikationerne fejler ikke noget.
  • Pros: Hurtig
  • Cons: Dyr, Stor
