1. JOHN KERRUISH, personal
Hello, Exceedingly quick efficient service, thank you very much. The scanner is working very well and will enable me to send boxes of A3 newspaper cuttings, from our local paper, articles titled \"Times Past\" for recycling, and gain control of some cluttered space.\r\n It complements my A4 Canon 9000F scanner. The performance quality of both machines is very high, and I would say impossible to say either one is better than the other. Thanks again.

Firstly a big up for the next day Saturday delivery which sorted me out of a real muddle - well done. Scanner is quick, easy to install and quality seems good. No 1200dpi option on a mac but there is on Pc. Thanks

I specifically needed this scanner for A3 capability, and that's good now to have. I found the user instructions a bit opaque as to use of the TWAIN interface and was surprised that, having consulted the Plustek helpline, I had to download a picture editing programme (albeit free) in order to perform some of the simplest tasks I used to do with my pretty old HP A4 scanner. Despite calibrating the Plustek as per instructions and trying to adjust the colours I find that they are not as faithful to the original (too saturated) as the scans automatically from my old HP. This is a particular disappointment as many of the images are needed for a printed publication but their colour inaccuracy is a problem. I now have to keep both scanners connected and only use the Plustek when I need larger than A4 scans.
