View Full Version : Scanners

07-26-2003, 06:22 PM
Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you have scanners with an 11x17 scan bed. I'm having a surprisingly hard time finding information about them on the net. Really I'm just looking to check out prices.

I found this one (http://www1.dealtime.com/xPF-Hewlett_Packard_HP_ScanJet_4570Cxi) and I think the price is pretty good ($150-$200), but it doesn't say how big the scanner bed is.

If any of you guys could help me out, that would be great.

Try searching Ebay for Epson 836XL . Recently replaced by the 1640XL, the 836 (12.2" x 17.2" @ 800 dpi) is being sold at refurbished prices though still brand new with warranty. At $375 its a more than $2000.00 savings off of list price.

Odd the page doesn't list scan size but, it does list scanner size. While long enough to be an A3 or Tabloid it's too narrow. My guess is it's Legal sized 8.5 x 14

I'm sure it says on HP's website...judging by the price and the fact that it's an HP...I'd say 8.5x11.
