Default Scanner Recommendations

Hello,

I am looking for a home office scanner to make high resolution scans of my collection, for both my personal records and perhaps down the road to do a PSA Online Photo Album.

I am looking to possibly go with the "Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner", which costs about $230.

Would that be a good choice or are there better options out there?

Thanks,
Eric

That Epson is used by quite a few board members and works great. I use the Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II and can highly recommend it.

The Epson is a great scanner. I have the V550, and am happy with it. The only issue I have had is a couple times I have had to remove the driver software from my computer and re-install it, which was because the update caused a glitch in my computer and the software could not find my scanner. It was quick to fix, and I did not need tech support to help. The software itself is easy to use, and the images are very nice. The V550 also cost me $90 at Best Buy new.

Have you considered a portable wand scanner?

You can find them pretty cheap on ebay. Here's the details on one of them that might help you -

Product Information
The handheld Magic Wand Portable Scanner from VuPoint scans documents, photos, newspapers, and virtually any smooth surface onto a microSD card. With a scan area of 8.27 x 25" (or 50 inches at a lower resolution), the scanner can store any letter or legal size document or image. Take the portable scanner with you to the library and scan what you need for later, no need to waste paper or money on photocopies. When you get home, simply connect the scanner to your computer with the supplied USB cable to transfer your scans. If you scanned a text document, once your file is on the computer, you can use the included OCR (optical character recognition) software to convert any printed material into editable text (Windows only; not compatible with Mac OS). The scanner runs on 2 AA batteries so you can easily replace them when they run out; no need to carry a charger around with you. Using standard AA batteries, the scanner can perform at least 180 color scans or 200 monochrome scans.

Thanks for the tips; I wound up getting the Canon. For anyone who uses the Canon, could you provide any tips on settings, etc. that you feel add to the quality of the image?

Thanks - Eric
