Hi All,

I'm looking for an 11 by 17 scanner. Figured some of you in the Lightwave world may have run across them at one point or another. Any recommmendations for a cheap one? I'm not after uber quality here, just the area. I like to draw and 11 by 17 is so much nicer than 8.5 by 11....

At my prior employer, we had an agfa scanner that went almost to 11 x 17. Very nice scanner, but I can't remember the model. Check agfa's website.

I bought that one for the company about 6 years ago, so times change. I remember I got it from pc connection for 600 us dollars, when it should have gone for around 1000. They had some overstock sale. I do remember is was a DuoScan by agfa. Check ebay and see if there are any there.

Mustek sells an 11 X 17 scanner that I think is in the 200-300 range. I currently use their older parallel port 11 X 17 model, the A3 EP. It has been a good work horse for scanning drawings. Though sometimes it has given me attitude while using the descreen mode for pictures.

MicroTek also sells 11x17 scanners pretty cheap. The quality is pretty good, but they're loud and their lifespan tends to be shorter than an Epson or Canon.
