    Hallo,

    I am looking for a new scanner that I can use as a copier together with a
    laser printer, scan text (also with grafics or pictures) and photographs. I
    don't want to scan any slides.

    I have narrowed down my selection to the Canon Canoscan 3200F and the Epson
    Perfection 1670 (not the Photo version). I read that the Canon scanner is
    very fast but doesn't scan text documents very well (fuzzy text scans). The
    Epson scanner is supposed to do a better job on text scans but is a lot
    slower.

    Could anybody tell me about his experiences with those scanners - especially
    those of you who own one of them. How bad are text scans by the Canoscan
    3200F and how much slower is the Epson Perfection? I don't need a high end
    scanner with very high resolution, rather a fast scanner that does well on
    text/graphic documents and allows me to scan photographs every once in a
    while.

    Any suggestions which one to choose? Pros and cons. Any advice would be
    highly appreciated.

    Thanxs in advance
    Jose
