I was just reading one of Kirk's posts on the mid-priced scanners. He's been using a 4990, he says, for a couple of years... I realised then that the Epson 4990 is actually quite OLD by now.
Yet we're still comparing it to certain other brand-new scanners in the same price range.
What gives? The way these things seem to progress, I'd have thought Epson would've come up with something new and improved over the 4990 by now ... or am I just being a spoiled-brat consumer? ;-)
That said, I realise these things are amazing in what they can do, for the outlay.
I'm still hoping the Microtek i800 will turn out to be a winner...
