It goes without saying that if you're looking to buy a scanner, then you're going to want a flatbed scanner. The last thing you want is to watch your photos and other stuff get mangled by one of those feed scanners. So, flatbeds are where it's at. Now, how do you select a scanner now that you've decided on a flatbed? Well, read on and we'll discuss the points that all good scanners need to meet in order to really be considered top quality. Reliability This is obviously one of the most important aspects of any scanner you're hoping to buy. Remember that not all of these scanners are really built to last. Your first instinct might be to simply assume that the more you spend, the less likely this or that model is to break down right? Well, no, actually. Many of the high cost scanners wind up lasting not nearly as long as the cheaper brands. The only way you can really identify reliability is through user reviews, so our advice is to check out a forum for hardware advice and see what sort of opinions and recommendations you can get. Price Clearly, you don't want to spend a whole lot on your scanner. No matter what you need it for, there's no point in spending an entire month's pay on a single computer accessory. Now, price isn't the ONLY concern, obviously, but it is a concern. List the top scanners you're after and then just buy the cheapest one on the list. Size Something a lot of people actually wind up neglecting is size. Some scanners simply aren't big enough for the job you need done. Most come in one size, but if you need one that's a little bigger, you'll need to make sure that the scanner you're getting is big enough. On the other hand, if you don't plan on scanning anything bigger than a piece of printer paper, then don't worry, because whatever scanner you get will probably do. But, if you're an artist, if you want to scan large pictures or comic pages or newspapers or some such, make sure the scanner you're getting can handle the job. Accessibility and Compatibility Some scanners are easy to figure out and make the most of right out of the box regardless of what operating system you're running on. Others might only work with certain computers. You need to


make sure that the scanner you're getting is compatible, and that it'll be easy to install and just as easy for you to really get a lot of use out of. Features Maybe all you need is a scanner, but if you need a printer, too, then why not look for a printer/scanner rather than buying them both separately? This is just another aspect of cost. Why spend more when you don't have to? It really all comes down to saving money because, yes, you can pay for quality, but you might be able to get the same degree of quality for a lot less, so why waste money?

I know of a site that is one of the UK's leading flatbed scanner suppliers, with over £50 million worth of stock available from stock for next day delivery, including £12 million worth of printer consumables.
