Dear Mr. Lo,
Simply as a member of this list, I am very pleased to see that Acer has
a member of your company monitoring here, and that you have chosen to
reply to a comment made by Tony.
I do not know how long you or your company have been monitoring here,
but I am sure that some of your current clients of both your 2720 and
2740 scanners who are subscribed here will have some questions as well
as comments for improvement of both your software and hardware, either
publicly or in private email.
Although I do not personally own the scanners your company makes, I
often recommend them to people who are seeking good value for their
money, and I believe your company has helped to improve the marketplace
by providing a reliable product at a reasonable price. In fact, I have
recently given the local manager of a chain of computer stores here
details about your product, because they are looking to replace their
current low end model with a better product line.
If I might make one suggestion, your company does need to improve its
distribution in Western Canada. I have yet to see your product in any
store in British Columbia, which makes it more difficult to promote,
since I have had no hands on experience with it.
Anyway, as a subscriber here who tends to promoting good value to people
new to film scanning who do not necessarily have unlimited financial
resources for that purpose, I wish to welcome you to our group. I wish
more companies would monitor and represent their products here to
liaison information from their clients to their production teams.
