TOP TEN REVIEWS - EXELLENCE

Mustek ScanExpress A3 USB 2400 Pro

 

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.

For people who actually use scanners

 

It's big, have lots of desk space available.

Good Image, great size. As an artist, it's difficult to digitize large format drawings. This can handle most sketchpad sized paper will

This might be a pro for some folks, but the scanner interface natively pops up when the scanner lid is lifted

Easy setup, quality scans

 

Good scans, large size, price, ease of setup (mac and windows), fast

Ordered expecting a lot worse. I read many reviews of this scanner, a great deal were negative. So I grabbed one and added some extra newegg waranty. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. Set up in less that 5 minutes on a windows xp laptop and...

Great Hardare with useable Software

 

Very easy to setup and use. Had a Mustek model many years ago and this model exceeds my expectations. The 11x17 photo album from the 1920s scanned easily with perfect quality. Although the included software is usable, it could be improved. Other...

Hardware great, software... not so much.

 

Just what the title says. The hardware does very well but the included software is very lacking. Not much control, it wants me to download wallpaper with a little smiley face button?!?! I would like to be able to tweak settings a lot more than this...

Hardware 1; Software 0

 

The scanner hardware does meet expectations. The included software is seriously lacking and is the cause of my low rating. I use VueScan to create a functional interface.

Very Good Solution

 

This scanner has essentially replaced my Epson as the diameter of this flatbad along with the resolution enable me to use it for just about anything imaginable. Although it takes up some real estate the overall solution has been rock solid and in use...

Low cost, high quality scanning solution that provides excellent capabilities. Works with all versions of Windows including Windows 7 (32/64) bit

In comparison to the other technologies, this product has probably a low MTBF, however given the cost it is easily justifiable purchase. The software which is included with this product is both annoying and useless if you use Photoshop or other...
