Free to a good home (Sydney): Epson GT-8000 professional SCSI scanner

Discussion in 'Scanners' started by Bob Milutinovic, Feb 19, 2007.

  1. Greetings, folks.

    I have here what was once a top-of-the-range flat-bed SCSI scanner, high
    resolution with brilliant colour fidelity.

    Knowing I won't get much for it, I don't want to go through the drama of
    listing it on eBay, so I'm offering it free of charge to anyone willing to
    pick it up from the Penrith area of Sydney.

    The scanner was last used about three years ago, and at that time worked
    perfectly. Apart from grime & dirt (nothing Mr. Sheen & 5 minutes of elbow
    grease won't fix), it's in perfect condition.

    To get it working, you'll need an IEC power cable and a SCSI-II cable with a
    50-pin Centronics connector (and obviously a SCSI interface on your
    computer).

    Do your own research through Google for info on its features,
    specifications, size & appearance.

    Contact me by 'phone or e-mail; first in, best dressed.

  7. Indeed, you could also buy a brand new car for well under the cost of a
    30-year-old Rolls Royce, but I don't think it's a valid argument. I doubt
    you'd be able to find any current scanner within comparison distance in
    terms of quality & speed, for under $1k.

    In any case, the scanner's now gone to a better home, one where it'll be put
    to good use converting family photo albums to digital format.

    yup, both our scanners are scsi.

    The only reason I'll upgrade (? = buy something with a higher
    resolution) is when I can afford the $10K A0 colour printer.
