Visioneer PrimaScan Colorado 2600U
Review The PrimaScan 2600U offers an excellent combination of price, ease of use and quality. It may never live up to the quality settings of the more expensive models, but it performs well enough given its hardware specifications.
The 42-bit colour depth is impressive and the 600x1200dpi (dots per inch) optical resolution ensures detailed scanned images, although colours can be a little washed out. Another advantage is high-speed scanning. We scanned a colour A4 image at 600dpi in just 58 seconds, making this one of the fastest scanners we've looked at.
Anyone interested in getting a first scanner can't go wrong with this bargain. It's very simple to operate, fast, relatively good quality and - best of all - cheap. ®
