Flatbed scanner for fast document scanning?

by the ill postino / January 19, 2006 12:22 AM PST


I'm a student looking to digitize my library and stop wasting money on photocopies. I'd rarely be scanning from anything but bound books, though, so document feeders won't really do any good -- I just need a really fast flatbed scan. Any suggestions? Reviews of photo scanners just talk about image resolution, which is not as important to me, and document scanners just talk about the document feeder which is also not that relevant. Scanner specs tend to just list the "preview speed" so I'm having a hard time finding the features I need. Thanks in advance for any help!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
