Based on http://www.samcos.com/rick/equip/scannertest/ssvsed.htm ( if done
accurately) SS4000 is overall "better" than Nikon 4000. Since Nikon IV is
not as "good" as his more expensive brother (this is easy to see!) the
Polaroid is a clear winner.
With no real knowledge about CanoScan FS4000US and Dimage Scan Elite I would
still consider them somewhere in Nikon IV/4000 category. Based on this
assumption SS4000 is the best scanner in $1700 category sold for about half
Can anybody confirm this? Any thoughts?
