I purchased a 3200C from Tempo as I had a large number of drawings to scan in for a job I was working on.
Hardware installation was simple as was the software. The scanning software packaged with the scanner leaves a lot to be desired. It doesn't seem to be very stable with the scan on occasions being either distorted or only half of it appearing. Several times I had to re-scan an image before I was happy with the result.
The scanner itself is noisy and slow and the definition leaves a lot to be desired. I have used a Genius scanner in the past and achieved far better results. I chose to buy HP because of their name and my experience with their printers which have always been good.
If you are looking for a budget scanner, then this is not to be recomended. There are other manufacturers producing them at a lower price with better software bundles and hardware.
