The Mustek Scan Express A3 USB 2400 is a wide format scanner with a scan bed that accommodates tabloid- or folio-sized originals (almost 12 x 17 inches). It scans at higher densities than the second-ranked large format scanner in our review (the...

The price point of the Mustek Scan Express A3 USB 2400 Pro provides significant value

The use of contact image sensor technology (to make it affordable) results in a short depth of focus

This is the best large format scanner in our review.

Seriously considering returning this scanner.

 

Buy something else.

When it works, it's good

Took an eternity to get the damned thing to work. Had to load the program 6 times before it worked. Since loading it, I have had nothing but problems, the damn thing just keeps crashing. Now I just cant get the damn thing to work at all

Great Hardare with useable Software
