So just for my curiosity, how many people are annoyed with my trumpet quote?

Any suggestions on a good place to buy it? So far the prices I have seen are
quite high.

I have both models and they are both very good.

The 4600 has a more heavy duty motor with a longer mean time before failure
rating. The 4600 will scan a page in 3 or 3.5 seconds and the 3600 is
slower.

Larry gave a good discription of the stand.

I have seen the 4600 and it is much faster. It can be hgotten with a heavy metal stand which slants the scanner so that a large book will slide toward the edge of the glas keeping it on the scanner. We didn't have the money to go for it but I would guess it is a much more durable scanner. The 3600 can be had for $199 from amazon as of the first of December and that's what we
did.

What is the difference between the 3600 and the 4600, is it worth going for
the 4600?

Hi Kane,
I think I got mine from Amazon for $150, but I don't really recall the
price. It varies depending on where you find it. There is also the 4600.
they are book edge scanners so you do all scanning in single page mode. If you can fit a book on the bed you can use two page mode. I find it is quite
fast and accurate and you do less damage to the books.
I often scan books while listening to the radio.
If you decide to get one pay attention to the install instructions.
This usb scanner is unusual in that you should have it plugged in and turned
on before beginning the install.
I don't know the scanning speed, but I often finish 300 plus page books in
about two hours.

I wasn't familiar with these lists prior to getting a scanner, so I
basically talked to some people and read a ton of reviews in"Consumer
Reports."  I was mainly looking for a flatbed scanner that delivered
stellar OCR performance, and I settled on the Epson Perfection 4490.
I just began scanning my first Bookshare novel yesterday--(it's
hardback and rather long, more than 400 pages).  So far, I really like
the performance of this scanner and the integrity of the text it
delivers.  I am told it creates nice images, too, for conventional
scanning purposes (without Kurzweil), which I use for work at times.
And in terms of this hardback book, I am getting a complete rendering
of both pages--no text lost in the binding.

But I would like to hear more about the Optibook, since I never knew
about it before this message.  About how much does this cost?
