Still $240

The Opticbook 3600 is still too pricey at $237.

If it got awesome reviews I'd buy it at that price. It seems like it's reviews are marginal. Those shaded areas near the spine are a large issue. I scan hard bound texts but my Canon 8400f does pretty well with finereader 7.0 on curved (spine area) text. Making audio books is, in reality, a nightmare and anything that would make it easier is an investment worth considering. My books all come from the library and removing the spine is out of the question.

Hey
does anyone know an affordable automatic Book Scanner?

I found this self build Lego one but looking for a bit more professional solution.

For some reason the first page of this thread is so wide it runs off the right side of my screen, unlike this second page. Any reason why this is? And can it be fixed?

One reason is a lengthy url in the 2nd post on the 1st page.

How fast is the 8400f in pages scanned per hour?

8400f speed

Postby feddup » Sun Mar 04, 2007 8:56 am

It gets about three pages per minute. that's at 300 DPI. You might look at online pictures of the 8400f before you decide. the unit is very big physically.

Can you scan a multi-page TIFF using the basic Opticbook 3600?
