Hi, Certainly you are right that are many $99 to $300 amateur or document copying scanner users who are not frustrated at all about the limitations of their equipment. Yet you are incorrect that there are more complacently scanner satisfied professionals than those seeking better scan quality. It seems that a forum like this one has participants who are sincerely interested in how to obtain digitization / scanning that is as good as their film or the original media being scanned. Whether it's technique, choice of equipment or the limitations of the equipment owned those who frequent this forum generally want to know. I have personally meet many thousands of dissatisfied professional scanner owners seeking solutions that could perform to their requirements. I have also helped many of them. I personally am also planning now on a new web site where over 40 scanner comparisons , with objective benchmarks will be online for people to see first hand what they do versus the marketing claims.
