    Arrow recommend a scanner...

    I am wondering if you guys can recommend a good scanner for me.

    I want something that is less than $100 and is USB connectivity.

    Using XP Pro and plenty of sources.

    Thanks!

    We've got a couple of low-priced scanners they're just fine: HP and Memorex. Both were real cheap at Staples with rebates, store specials, and coupons combined.

    I have a 160 dollar USB HP 6200C Pro scanner.. only goes up to 1200 DPI

    I have a 10 dollar Microtec scanner... gets some crazy 4000+ dpi, but its parallel port, we bought this like 4 years ago

    funny.. the microtek is the best scaner ive ever owned image wise... its a bitch to install though

    heh.. hwen i first got that scanner i plugged it in and something ****in crazy happened... my computer couldnt find the hard drive!!!!

    had to reset the bios and it was all good

    program never did work right though...

    but yes.. i am quite fond of my HP scanner

    you honnestly can just get some cheap scanner... unless you plan to do some very high quality scanning.. then "just any ol' scanner" will work just fine...

    Rock on.

    Thanks guys. My parents were using a Visiontek and it was a piece of poop. It never worked right, so they kept returning it and stuff.

    Anyway, I just thought I would find out some recommendations.

    We'll probably go with something that is inexpensive, but still scans at 42bit and some higher rez.

    Thanks again.

    This site freakin ROCKS!!!
