Hi Jana. Epson is still producing some very nice scanners. I think
they are the best quality for the price. Other scanners do work, and I
don't mean to put anyone else's scanner down. I just work with a lot
of people who are using Epsons, and I like the quality of the scans.
Louise, who has submitted hundreds of books this year, is using one of
the Epson scanners and may be a good resource for information about
choosing a good model.

I do like the quality of scans from my OpticBook. I don't like the
customer service of the company that makes the scanner. I don't know
how to quantify those things though. Over all, I'm still happy with my
purchase because of the physical comfort the scanner provides along
with its speed and ability to handle thick books well. For someone
with arthritis, the OpticBook significantly decreases the shoulder and
elbo pain involved in frequent scanning. If you're healthy and rarely
scan thick books, these points won't matter as much.

I know that picking out a scanner is both exciting and somewhat
intimidating because it's a long-term investment. You're smart and
know what you need and how you like to work. I know you'll make a good
choice when you're ready. I hope you find a scanner that's just right
for you, one that almost seems to have your name on it. (smile)
