The Epson Perfection 3170 Photo is a flat bed scanner which functions on almost every computer it has been faced with. This is a stlyish option to the fast choice of flatbed scanners you can choose from.
I personally chose this one because i liked the look of it and the clear cut facts about it, on the box. Now with some scanners you have to search through things to find what windows it operates on and how to work it and install it etc.. but with this Epson Perfection you do not have to do this. With this scanner everything you need is right under your nose. Well so to speak
Another turn on for this product is its ease of use. All you have to do you install it is follow the simple instuctions given by Epson. Once you have done this everytime you need to use it just turn it on and you very much away.
The price for this item obviosly various depending on what shop you go in to and what contry you are in, but i would say that you are getting a good deal if the price is between
150 U.K pounds
If it is above this then i would say look elsewhere because im sure that you will find another price in a shop near you that is better.
If it is lower than this then.. tell me so i can take mine back and save myself a bit of cash. Just kidding.
Overall i would very much recommend this above all other scanners and trust me i have had my fair share of scanners. I think that at once stage i went through about 5 in one year. Which i thought was appouling. But i am here to help you out and stop you from making the same mistakes i made.
So go now and search for the best price you can get on a well worth while scanner.
Thanks for reading
