No problems with my lamp.

I had issues with a couple of paperbacks but I don't think it was the scanner.  
I sent the books to someone else who also uses an Opticbook but a different OCR 
program and they scanned just fine.

  Thanks for the info everyone. I'm curious though. I've looked it up on the 
internet and some of the reviews have been quite poor. Several said the lamp 
died on them after 200 or 300 scans. Others said it works well for hard cover 
books, but it doesn't work well at all for paper backs. Have any of you 
experienced these issues?

    Hi Denise,
    I have this scanner, and love it!  It is both accurate and has a book edge. 
 You can scan one or two pages at a time.  I wouldn't buy anything else.  But 
that's just my opinion. They were never widely available, but could always be 
found on the internet to buy.  If I needed to invest in a scanner, this is the 
one I'd buy.

    I'm not familiar with this scanner. Is it one that's really accurate or 
does it have a book edge? I'm wondering what it is about it that folks know 
about it. I found it interesting a few months ago when I went looking for 
scanners. People don't carry them much any more. Seems folks are gravitating to 
the all in one printer/scanners.

      I have one but it needs a power cord for it, somehow it got misplaced so 
you will get that from Plustek otherwise it works, had it for a year. We have 
three others around here therefore don't need it.

        If someone has one of these they're willing to sell, please contact me 
if nobody else wants it.
