Information On How To Buy A Scanner

Hi Friends,

Today I would like to share some points in a technical aspect. When we need to buy a desktop, we are aware of what configuration we needed, etc. But not many of us know as to which type of Scanner suits our requirements best.
So in this article, I would like to focus on the various Scanners you need to know to fulfill your requirements.

* Identify The Requirement Of The Scanner

*I would advice you to buy a low-resolution scanner if you will use it just to scan text.

* If you don't plan to scan from books or magazines, consider a sheet-fed unit, which takes up far less desk space than a flatbed scanner.

* You can Use A Flatbed scanner in case you want to scan books.

* Purchase a low-resolution or medium-resolution scanner if you plan to scan photographs to use on the Internet, as the resolution of Web graphics is low anyway.

* Buy a High-resolution scanner if you plan to scan photographs to print and you have a high-resolution printer (greater than 600-by-600 dots per inch, or dpi).

* Buy a model with 36-bit color depth if you plan to scan photographs or color graphics.

* I would prefer you to buy a Parallel-port scanner if you don't expect to use the scanner often or work with large files.

* Scanners that cost less than $100 will provide a good picture of 600-by-1,200-dpi resolution. Scanners priced between $150 and $250 usually provide 1,200-by-1,200-dpi resolution.

* Last but definitely not the least, Please know that speed is the biggest factor in pricing. Parallel-port scanners, which use your existing printer port, are the cheapest and slowest. USB scanners, which require that your computer have a USB port, are faster and cost more. SCSI-card scanners are the fastest and most expensive. You need to install a SCSI card in your computer if it does not have one.

Hope my article was useful! Please give me suggestions that might add to the content for better satisfaction of the readers.

Have A Nice Day Folks!
