We have a scan lab at the Maine State Library that includes a range of different technology for digitizing various types of media. The Plustek fills an important niche for us, and I’d strongly recommend it for anyone looking to digitize bound materials. If you want a relatively inexpensive way to get into book scanning and want good results, this is a smart purchase.
I should have moved up to this high-speed scanner ages ago. I use it at home to scan all instruction manuals and several books so they’re safe inside my computer. And the OCR software really works! It’s a pleasure to own!
Excellent value Book Scanner that works well with most books. For most books it works well either as a flat bed scanner or in the book scanner mode. OCR programme included with the scanner does a decent job and works at 1200 dpi as maximum. Output is as clear and the multi-language capability is excellent.
