Quote:>I am going to purchase a scanner and software for my father.
Scan over the archives for comp.periphs.scanners. MANY people
(including myself) have had problems with HP scanners and support from
HP, so I would stay away from that brand. Otherwise, look around
carefully before deciding on a particular scanner. In c.p.s you
should be able to find some articles pointing you to some web sites
that do comparative reviews of scanners. The scanner market is
evolving rapidly and since I haven't bought a flatbed for some time,
my knowledge of particular products is lacking. If you only need to
scan once in a while and quality isn't of paramount importance, then
one of the cheaper flatbeds should be able to suit your needs.
