Selecting a Scanner

Like computers, scanners come in all shapes, sizes, and price points. Choosing the right one for you involves a lot more thought than simply choosing a brand within your budget. Scanners are available for around $100, but many may not be capable of doing what you want at the level of quality you desire. You do often get what you pay for.

What Scanners Can Do for You

Scanners are one of those peripherals that are equally useful for work and play. A scanner can convert a paper document into a word processing document, produce high-quality images for a corporate Web page, or even scan the merchandise you sell at online auctions. You can also scan old photos to preserve them for the long term and maybe even touch them up a bit. You can put your children's pictures on special transfer media for creating personalized T-shirts and memory quilts. You can also put current photos on special-theme CDs for long-term storage or sharing.
