I am currently in the market for a new scanner. The reviews at online shops haven't really been helping me much because I am not really sure where my standards should be set. Ultimately I want to be able to scan photos, patterns and textures for design projects as well as font sketches for typeface development.
I was interested in the Microtek s400, but then I read some reviews that called it slow and one even said that it doesn't work with Mac OSX.
Does anyone out there have any advice on what I should be looking for? What do you use? How do you like it? How much should I expect to spend? Do certain brands work better with Macs and Adobe CS?
I really appreciate any advice or guidance you may have,
