Excerpt: I should have moved up to this high-speed scanner ages ago. The work just disappears! I use it at home to scan all instruction manuals and several books so they're safe inside my computer. And the OCR software really works!

Summary: Ich scanne schon seit langem Bücher, habe viel probiert aber ich musste immer wieder feststellen, dass die Qualität eines Flachbettscanners so leicht nicht erreicht werden kann. Darum bin ich froh, dass es hier einen Flachbettscanner gibt, der die Scanzeit merklich reduziert.
Gute Technik kommt mit wenigen Bedienelementen aus.
