Epson GT-30000 Scanner

For high-end users, the GT-30000 offers more quality and features than nearly any other consumer-level scanner on the market. The color flatbed is designed for high-volume office use, and it does the job admirably. An optical resolution of 600 x 1,200 dpi (9,600 x 9,600 interpolated), 36-bit color depth, and an array of embedded image processing features result in crisp, clean images, ideal for professional uses.

The GT-30000's real enticement however, is convenience. A 100-page auto-document feeder (with auto-document sizing) is capable of a very impressive 30 pages per minute and even supports duplex scanning. Networking doesn't get much easier, as the GT-30000 is networkable right out of the box. Both Twain and Isis drivers are provided for compatibility with a wide variety of scanning environments, while SCSI (and optional FireWire) connectivity ensures suitably fast transfer times.

While distinctly pricey, the GT-30000 offers high-end scanning and convenience that's hard to beat. It also comes backed with a one-year extendable warranty.
