    Our reprographics dept has an Epson GT-20000 A3 Scanner which performs very well. Not cheap tho....

    Hi Glennda,

    I've dealt with Epson on these recently and the Epson Expression 10000XL is the cheapest i found at not much over £1500 and i've had no complaints about it

    Cheers

    We have Mustek A3 scanners in our D and T department, lets say they do what they say they do, scan. I wouldnt recommend them, (I know you asked for recommendations) as they aren't the easiest to install.

    I find the easiest way to get kids to use the scanner is using the scanner wizard (Scanner and Faxes wizard)

    We've had a few musteks, they're pretty nasty but if you want to spend less then a grand they're probably the only option.

    Beautiful bit of kit, easy to use, fairly fast and good quality.
