- User Rating: Excellent
Ease of Use:
Pros:Good quality, easy to use software, USB
Cons:Software controlled power save - sometimes have to unplug
The Bottom Line: Power save mode doesn't work well, but if you don't mind unplugging it it's not a bad piece.
I bought this scanner about a year and a half ago from Staples. Cost me $200 but i'm sure now days you can get it for half price.
Software is easy to install, and it links nicely with PhotoShop. Great quality of pictures, recognizes the color of pictures.
Function: It comes with three buttons on the scanner itself - scan, print and email. I never used the print and email options, but you can guess what they do.
So far I'm very very happy with it. You can't do practically anything with software that comes with it, but I use PhotoShop for all of photo editing.
Reading text: works 100% if text is not highlighted or underlined. Once you underline something you start getting junk.
Here's one big, big flaw: I guess power save mode is software controlled, so if you turn off your computer before scanner goes into the power save the lamp will be lit up forever, so I just keep it unplugged and whenever I need to scan something plug in the power. Thanks to the USB you don't have to restart your computer to use the scanner.
Overall it's a good buy, even though I'm sure there's cheaper scanners out there that do the same thing.
