I have never looked at nor used this scanner so can't comment 
authoritatively, but a number of people on this list at one time or 
another have been tempted by the low price. I think they have mostly been 
less than satisfied, and have returned the unit and exchanged for an Acer 
Scanwit or Canon FS2710 or Minolta Dualscan, with which they have been 
much happier. The same applies to the Tamarack/Jenoptic. 

Sample variation seems wide with these scanners. You may be content with 
the results, but I'd suggest you buy from a dealer who will allow an 
exchange if you aren't.
