  • Scanner Recommendation

    Hello All!

    I recently repaired a friends HP 5370C scanner. When testing it I found out it does a much better job than my Microtech scanner (6000 series) The detail and color accuracy is superior.

    I am looking to update my flat bed scanner. I have a PC system with USB ports. I would like something that has better resolution and color accuracy. The Epson Perfection 4870 looks interesting.

    Scanning negatives does not matter because I have a dedicated film scanner.

    If Anyone has suggestions, I would appreciate it.

    Found the basic information I needed elsewhere......I thought this was a discussion forum. 76 views and not one person can recommend a good scanner?

      Well jjhannon the drum scanners from ICG are pretty good, but I have a strange feeling they may be a bit too good for what you're looking for - but at least I recommended some!

      I have had good results with the Epson Perfection series of scanner, but I'm not sure if they are good enough for what you want....?

        This may be a useful thread for you to look at.

          Saw your post, but had nothing constructive to contribute, sorry you felt snubbed, not the experience I've had here.

            by darylbubba
            I am considering buying a used Epson 4990 scanner. It has nothing with it but the scanner. It is said to work very well and is in good operating condition. The price about $100.
            Is this a good deal? Has anyone had experience getting this scanner working under Ubuntu Linux? I will be scanning...

            I don't know if anyone is interested but I bought a Minolta Speed Scan film scanner on ebay. I just couldn't pass it up because of the price. I know it's discontinued from production but it had a suggested retail of 1299.00 and it has had some good reviews. I think the last street price of this scanner...

            I'm considering the purchase of a scanner for use in restoring old photographs. This is going to be a hobby / small sideline initially so I can only justify a relatively small amount of money. Ideally I'd be looking to spend under £150.

            I've seen the Epson Perfection v350 and HP ScanJet...

            by christo
            I am in the market for a new flatbed scanner (Mac). In the past I have been a dedicated Microtek supported, using the Scanmaker II, ScanMaker 600 SZ, ,the Scanmaker II HR and lastly the Scanmaker V6USL. While I liked the quality, performance and durability of the first three models, the last one, the...
