    Need Help: Scanner Recommendation For £100

    A friend has asked me to recommend a scanner to buy for her hubby, budget is about £100 and will be used to scan photos & docs. They already have a negatives scanner so no real need for that. I don't have a clue when when it comes to scanners so any advice/recommendations are appreciated.

    Cheers

    Jim

    I've been using Canon USB scanners for years. Cheap, and good quality USB flatbed, they're a lot less than your budget.

    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Just be careful of support. If you want it to last into the next generation of OS don't place your bets on Canon support. They are notorious for lack of updates. Just google Canon Canoscan Windows 7.

    You could probably get a printer/scanner/copier combo for that budget.

    Re: Need Help: Scanner Recommendation For £100

    I have an Epson Perfection 3490 Photo

    It works fine with XP and Windows 7

    I would recommend it actually - my last scanner was a Umax and this one is considerably better.

    Its about £60 as its been around for a while

    Re: Need Help: Scanner Recommendation For £100

    Well so far it looks like the Epsom V300 is the lead contender, seems to be the best you can get for around £100. Anybody recommend anything better for a £100??
