Excerpt: Other scanners this size are over $, this one does more than enough for the price tag and it is not even worth looking at others. The scans are very high quality, color reproduction is slightly dull though depending on what program you are scanning into.
Good scanner but not for scanning original paintings on canvas

Summary: Good scanner but not for scanning original paintings on canvas. At least not yet. It scans normal things, documents etc very very well. But my need for it was to scan my paintings on canvas and it picked up too many hot spots in the weave of the canvas material..
Excerpt: I love this scanner. Set up was easy and fast. The scanning software is easy to navigate and gives you tons of options. My only disappointment was the description stated it was MAC compatible (somewhat).
Summary: I wanted a scanner that would scan 12 x 12 scrapbooking pages. And this scanner does it very well. I can put the entire page on the glass, and everything is captured in the scan except about 3/16 inch on the outside edges. But that was expected, based on what I had read.
Excerpt: This is a good scanner and fast. It installed easily by following the included instructions but that's where the easy part ended. Although there was lots of software included there were no instructions on what did what or how to do anything such as scan a tabloid format document and create a pdf...
Excerpt: I am digitizing the original 11 x 17 board masters of my grphic novel pages. The artwork is finely detailed. One board in particular is probably over 80 years old; i found it stuff in a home over a hundred years old wherein once I resided.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
Excerpt: I was looking for a scanner that could scan tabloid size newspaper. This was the one I could afford and it does a satisfactory optical job. It is also the only Plustek scanner that offers a Mac OS driver. The interface is clunky and there is no documentation if you are a Mac user.
Pros: Accurate Color, Nicely designed lid
Cons: No documentation for Mac, Not fast but okay, Poor Software
Excerpt: We do a lot of black& white scans of landscape drawings--have been sending larger ones out, so this A3 size scanner is saving us a lot of time/money since we can do it in-house. Images much sharper than our tired old Epson, which has given up the ghost after years of abuse..
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Resolution
