Rated a Very Helpful Review
User Rating: Excellent
Ease of Use:
Pros:$19 and OCR too! Give-away price and works great with Win XP
Cons:reputed short life
The Bottom Line: $19 dollar scanning for the masses. Good computer teaching skills when you give them to students or your kids. Loss leader no brainer, $19 sale again this Sunday, 2/17/02
In the mad dash to get you in the store, Staples amongst the other large chains offers ridiculously low prices on so-called loss leaders. Pay full price but get most of your money back in rebates. They are slow but you can monitor rebate progress as Staples has on line rebate notes, and I can confirm you do get the ducats back.

The scanner is light compared to the first and second-generation scanners, which were much heavier. While not a slim model it still takes less desktop space than most competitors scanners. One issue though, it’s a part time job searching for things that will work with windoze XP. Since such capabilities are not printed on old stock retail boxes, Visioneer does maintain a website list indicating which products are accepted by XP and this one is. My new 1.6 Pentium Four blips only slightly when scanning, so the machine is not a resource hog. Output is equal to more expensive hardware. The 600/1200-scan quality is acceptable for everything but detailed graphics work. Color reproduction is accurate for such inexpensive hardware. Scanned images can be worked a number of ways, print, save to file or send to e-mail, all guide the user along. There are external function buttons and software driven options, which include, “scan”, “fax”, and copy, which are self-explanatory. For the amazing cost of $19 the onboard OCR software, which allows a scan, which is only a “picture” of text to translate into word-processor ready type. Good quality original scans produce 99 percent word recognition. Imagine a ten page scanned legal brief, recognized in minutes as opposed to retyping the whole ten pages. Buck Rogers would be amazed. The usb hookup which means no separate power cable, saves on the typical cable jumble around computers. Installation of driver and accessory software, always a dicey proposition, went uneventful and all installed unproblematically into my machine. However if you’re in a hurry, then pass this machine. It is slow to warm to the task. There is not only a warm up time, but yet a second counter until the scan. So far I can report all features perform flawlessly, albeit at a quite leisurely pace. If you scan volume, get a sheet feeder model, a few steps up the product line.
I have run this 7600 for five months in the office and now brought it home. At six months it still lives, and am glad to report it’s alleviating my fears from reported cases of premature failure. I think the lack of an off switch is no doubt intentional, as it should be plugged into a surge device, which can turn each peripheral on. One note, if you turn the scanner on after you have booted, you need to reboot to load it. Then it flies. I scan through Paintshop Pro, and it works as directed. The low hum of the machine actually appeals to me. The $19 wonder is doing its job.
Amount Paid (US$): $19
