Excerpt: I was looking for a larger scanner to scan drawings and illustrations. This one seemed reasonable in price. It creates great results. But when it comes to color reproduction the profile that comes with it is quite frankly garbage.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
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.
Summary: I got this scanner to replace my Epson V700. (The Epson leaves shadows in grayscale and clips edges. Its lid fits badly and admits light. I couldn't get a true white in either color or grayscale even after much tinkering. And I needed a larger format.
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
