    Hi All,

    I'm scanning some b&w print on my old Canon N640P and I see that the black
    are very noisy (kind of randomly distributed lines), no way to reduce the
    noise playing with the option of the software. For this reason I'm
    evaluating to buy a new flatbed scanner, possibly not too expensive but
    with good performance on b&w prints. Any suggestion?
    Thanks a lot!

    Here an example of a dark picture. I increased brightness and contrast to
    make the noise and horizontal lines more visible:
