The Plustek is pretty fast, which is the main attraction for me. There’s no “preview” process, and the scanner accepts photos one after the other. The quality is sufficient for my needs. The auto rotate and de-skew works very well most of the time, including on the unevenly cut prints I pulled out of albums.
When does the scanner need to be calibrated? ! How to calibrate the scanner? !
Very impressed with the speed and quality of the scans. Old black & white photos show excellent detail, and colour prints are reproduced perfectly compared to what our old scanner could manage.
So pleased that I bought this machine. I have a lot of photos that need scanning so that I can put them away but still have them available alongside all my digital photos. One Sunday morning I managed to scan 3,000 + of them. This was on the lowest resolution of 300 and the result was more than acceptable.
Having reviewed the options I settled on the Plustek ePhoto Z300 and I am pleased that I did. Setup was easy. I have a flatbed scanner but chose this for speed and ease of use for scanning many photos and it is a good choice. I have also scanned documents with it. They are also quick and with good results.
With Plustek ePhoto Z300, Silverlab Solutions has created an easy way for customers to scan and digitize their printed photos by using kiosk systems in supermarkets, pharmacies and retail chain stores.
People can use these digital images to reprint, enlarge, or create greeting cards, collages, photo books, etc.
I found this Plustek ePhoto z300 scanner to be easy and quick to use. I was amazed at how I buzzed through my photos. Very satisfied. I also scanned some photos that were on cardboard and some old Polaroids and then went right through!
