View Full Version : Scanner confusion

30-08-2001, 10:20 AM
I am looking at purchasing a scanner, primarily for photographic work, black n white and colour. I have had the Canon 660ou and the Microtek 3700 recommended ...and I dont know. Any comments? My budget only goes to around the $400.

Most of the scanners these days are pretty good - go for the highest optical (not 'enhanced' or 'software') resolution you can get for your dollar and make sure it is a CCD scanner, not one of the cheaper 'LED' scanners.

If you can afford it, SCSI is the best but is expensive. So I recommend a USB scanner which I think all of them are now. Don't get a parallel port scanner, I have one and they are horrable, especially if you are going to be using it alot.

The canon and microtek are both USB so it shouldn't be a problem.
