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: 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.
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.
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..
Summary: I needed a new scanner when my old one died (a mechanical fault of some kind) and settled on this one after a bit of searching the Internet. It is less expensive than other similar size scanners and so far it has performed well.
Summary: I was looking for a flatbed scanner to handle larger copy. This is doing a great job. I had some problems getting it to work with my Vuescan software, but Hamrick was quick to tell me which option to change to solve the zoom problem.
