Mustek A3 1200S High Speed A3 Large Format 11.7x16.5" Color Scanner
While there's a lot to like about this budget scanner, it's just not an ideal pick for most people. Its maximum resolution for scans is 1200 x 1200 dpi, which is pretty good but certainly not amazing. If you plan on scanning some low resolution photographs and images, or lots of documents with text, then this should be more than sufficient. Keep in mind, however, that you can definitely get better resolutions from other budget scanners like the Canon CanoScan LiDE220. The lower resolution lets this model scan quite quickly at under 10 seconds per scan, and the durable design means you’ll certainly get some long-term use out of it. A USB 2.0 connection allows for quick connections to your laptop or other device as well as direct publishing of your scanned content to PDF documents and emails.
