I absolutely love this scanner. I have been working to diminish my stuffed file drawers by throwing away what I don’t need and scanning what I want to keep. Some of the keepers were newspaper clippings and other larger items that my other scanner couldn’t accommodate–other than scanning them in pieces. Thus began my search for a large-format scanner.
Is this the best large-format scanner on the market? That depends on your criteria and how much you’re willing to spend. Here’s why it is the best for me.
1) If you compare the prices of large-format scanners, this is an unbelievable bargain. For my purposes of having high-def, clear copies of precious but mundane items, it was a screaming deal.
2) This has a great user interface and is fairly intuitive and easy to use. It also has excellent instructions.
3) It offers a lot of fine tuning, with options of color/BW, level of definition/dpi, JPG/PDF, etc.
4) Most importantly, this scanner creates clear, high-quality scans. Yay! Mission accomplished.

I order this scanner- I’m an artist and work on 11 x 17″ paper so the size is perfect. It works like a dream. I’m on a brand new iMac 5k, latest software. I use this scanner with the Apple image capture- a quick fit in PS or image capture adjustment works great. Great scanner for the price.

I knew the scanner was going to be large, that’s why I purchased it. But when you have been dealing with standard sized paper scanners for as long as I have and then get this- wow!
It also picks up color amazingly. Most scanners I’ve worked with don’t pick up pinks very well. This did great!

We’ve had the OpticSlim 1180 installed and after days of use we can report that it is working great! We really like the automatic page sizing as well as the easy access. We have, so far, managed to scan well over 100 pages per day and with about six more large file drawers of sheet music to be digitized ahead, we’re sure we can finish the task without frustration.
