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.
Over the last 10 years I have scanned about 2000 old family photos . Very time consuming with a flatbed scanner. I needed something a lot faster to continue my project in finishing digitizing the family photos. The Plustek e-Photo was in my price range. The scans to my eye were right on. You can easily scan 1000 photos in an afternoon. Good machine!
I bought this scanner because I wanted to digitize over one thousand old family photos. This scanner is just what I needed. It scans each photo in about two seconds and is very easy to learn how to use. It scans to jpg or pdf so it can also be used for documents.
Scanned over 1000 pictures from recent pictures to 60 year old black and white and very very pleased with the quality. Unit is fast, two seconds a picture and not one picture jammed.
This scanner is FAST. The colors are nearly spot on, with true gray grays. Depth of field is great. Scanner is about half the weight of similar scanners. Only had it a few days, but have not found any troubles with it yet.
It was almost as easy as plug and play. For the person who is not a techie, it was a rather easy installation. It goes real well if you follow the directions. I would highly recommend it to others. It is fast and quiet.
I’ve only have had this scanner few days. But I absolutely love it. It’s compact but it does job! I’m so happy that can finally organize all my papers in my house. It so worth to pay to have this little guy.
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. If you compare the prices of large-format scanners, this is an unbelievable bargain. Most importantly, this scanner creates clear, high-quality scans.
