These are the settings that I use with my Epson GT-15000.  The images are great!

Im not a fan of how the back cover looks like it has a pink/brown tinge to it with those settings. The front looks better the back looks putrid

I have the same issue with the back as well. For the back, I change to auto levels and it seems to bring the natural tone out.

Does anyone have a recommendation of a good scanner to use with a MAC?  I have an HP I use with Vuescan which is pretty wanky.  Inhale to connect in a fixed sequence to get it to work which is painful so I haven't upgraded to a pay version of Vuescan yet since it doesn't work too well.

Change your Preview Resolution to 72 dpi.  The Preview will be much quicker.

This is what I get with my HP8200 and an old label book with a little image darkening.

I have the old Epson GT-15000 hooked up to my mac, no problem.

I don't think my scanner likes it that low. It sounds like it's freaking out and the scan blows up (size wise)

I don’t think that is in current production, so you are buying refurbished?

 

ill want to know how it works for you

Anyone ever used an HP OfficeJet MFP for scanning slabs? I have access to 2 of them at my office (an M725 and M775) that I'd like to use if they can do the job.

Yup, in theory, both should work. They are both CCD type scanners and they appear to fit the size of a slab in the flatbed.

Yes, any GT-15000 purchased currently would be refurbished or second hand. There is a DS-50000 which would meet the requirements of being CCD and large enough to fit a slab in the flatbed and are still being sold brand new. They do cost a pretty penny, $1399.00 MSRP.

imageproxy.php?img=&key=31b352271b3a5a4bimageproxy.php?img=&key=31b352271b3a5a4bMy GT-15000 had deep scratches in the glass.  I just carefully removed it and had a glass shop cut me a new one.  The plastic strips that are part of the scanner bed peel off easily and for the gray glass line borders there is nice gray cellophane like tape that looks perfect when applied.(to the underside of the new glass) It all depends how much that kind of thing bothers you.  Mine is like new with the glass and that tape.  The new glass is tempered with edges polished and was very inexpensive to buy.

I bought a used HP Scanjet 7400c off Amazon for $230.   It seems like it is working fairly well, but I am some light vertical streaking on the images.   I think I may just tolerate it though....it isn't too bad, and I don't want to send this back and buy something more expensive.

I am using Vuescan software, but I assume the streaking is from the hardware.

I would just send it back if it is truly hardware. What settings are you using?

I'm pretty much just using the standard settings, except for black point being set at 11, like others are doing.   I can improve it a bit using Curves in Photoshop, but that streaking is still visible.

I could send it back, but there are zero of these for sale on ebay or amazon right now....or anywhere else that I can find with a quick Google search.  So I may just tolerate it, at least for now..   Or maybe I'll do more research and try to find another model in the $200 range.

I bought a used HP years ago and it worked like a champ, but is now incompatible with the latest MAC OS.

Vuescan doesn't work either. Time for a replacement.
