Microtek ScanMaker i800

 

Microtek (http://www.microtek.com) announced its ScanMaker i800 at Photoshop World in Sept. 2005 and is just shipping a Pro version with upgraded software to read the included IT8 targets. We received an early review unit which sat by our side for a...

The i800 has the resolution, bit-depth and Dmax to handle 35mm negatives and slides, prints and a variety of other scanning jobs without breaking a sweat. We applaud the inclusion of both High-Speed USB and FireWire ports. And we're happy to see a...

Microtek ScanMaker i800 scanner

 

Microtek's ScanMaker i800 is good all-around printer with some nice higher-end features, like a built-in transparency unit with support for multiple sizes.

Large 8-inch-by-14-inch scanning area for legal-sized documents ; both USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 connectivity

Scanner buttons worked intermittently ; transparency scans over-sharpened at default settings ; a little pokey

As you'd expect, this scanner takes up a little more space on your desk than letter-sized scanners, but not that much. You can use either a FireWire 400 or a USB 2.0 port to connect the i800 to your Mac. I used FireWire

Microtek Scanmaker i800

 

The first scanner I reviewed fresh out of journalism school was a Microtek ScanMaker III, a SCSI-based 600dpi color scanner with a bulky transparency adapter that I think shipped with the full version of Adobe Photoshop 3.0. That was in the mid 1990s....

Really bad tech support

 

I have had the i800 for three years and on many occassions it has stopped working and caused all my USB ports to freeze. I have installed it on a Dell, a compaq, an Asus, an MSI, and an EVGA motherboard. If I have the scanner plugged in then none of my...
