Scanner Recommendation

leslie77March 4, 2008

The scanner that's part of my HP printer is way less than satisfactory. I scan things alot that contain fractions, and this scanner just doesn't recognize them. Can anyone recommend a scanner that won't put me in debtor's prison, and won't take the brain of Einstein to use, but that still manages to scan true to the original?

I purchased a Medion scanner from Aldi's that has an optical resolution of 4800 x 9600 dpi. Had I known at the time how good this scanner was, I would have bought several. They went fast. The interface is so sensible and easy to use and the quality is unbelievable--the best of the 8 scanners that I have owned and which included Umax, HP, Canon and Epson. What really amazed me was the comparison I made to the $75,000 scanner I used at work. The Medion scanner produced a much sharper, better quality image than did the scanner at my workplace. There is no model number that I could find but on the box it says Item #9728. A really great scanner
