The Acer Scanner UT is just as slow. And you can’t just scan blind, either; until you’ve done a preview, you can’t do any other sort of scan. Easy Driver Pro does not sell or charge for drivers. Since flatbed scanners are too big to hold that way, the Agfa HYTs are just lounging about looking windswept and interesting. The e40 hardware may well be an absolute performance tuned sports car of the mid-priced scanner world.

Since flatbed scanners are too big to hold that way, the Agfa HYTs are just lounging about looking windswept and interesting. When it is finished scanning it will automatically update them e440 the latest, most compatible version. Street prices are lower.

Unlike most scanners, the e40 has a matte black inside to its lid, instead of a smooth white one. Skip to main content.

See details for additional description. It’s therefore very difficult to make the same settings time after time. If you’re in the market for a flatbed scanner, you’ve got a lot of options.

The e40’s driver has a “PhotoGenie” check-box that’s meant to automatically make anything other than line art look better. Which you have to do, because the sliders all go back to zero every time you quit ScanWise, because it doesn’t remember its settings.

One USB cable, one power cable. Visit the device manufacturer’s website to download the latest versions. Even once you know what program wants what kind of scan, so you don’t send hapless apps the wrong kind of data, it’s still faster to do it the automated way, provided the automated software does a decent job.

It’s rotten with ’em. I did a couple of white-scans with the e40 too, to look for afgw in the e40’s response. You can also do multiple selections with different settings, to pull a couple of selected blocks of text off a page, for instance, or some text and an image, or whatever.

If you want something a bit better, though – you’re doing some more serious graphics work, or you want a good software bundle – the brand names come into play.

The physical glass area’s a bit bigger than that, to make it easier to fit things onto it, but you can’t use all of the area for a scan. HYTs photographed in this way are usually thrusting a product of some kind toward the camera, making snapsfan product look the size of a piano.

Every time you run ScanWise. Besides setting up ScanWise, the installer also gives you the option to set up access to the AgfaNet Internet Print Service, which lets you send digital photos or scans over snaapscan Internet to Agfa and buy high-quality prints from local vendors.

They can deliver 48 bit data to the few programs, like Photoshop, that can handle it. Both of these scans were done with PhotoGenie enabled; without it, the first one looked a bit darker but didn’t have any more detail, and the second one was a little paler.

But the Agfa software insisted on evening out the tone balance on the coin when it had a black background, which fouled it up. You can turn off the auto-preview, but there’s not much reason to do so, because ScanWise isn’t clever enough to show you the last preview it made. You can also tell ScanWise to select the shapscan bed every time, for full-document scanning.

Of course, you don’t have to manually change the resolution if you’re happy with the perfectly sensible settings ScanWise uses for the mundane tasks for which it is intended.

Agfa’s “proper” scanner driver software is FotoLook, downloadable from here.

The software bundle’s decent, as you’d expect from a name-brand scanner. But Agfa’s PR blurb for the thing says “Every last detail is perfectly reproduced, even in difficult highlight and shadow areas”.

Next, Easy Driver Pro searches a database of over 11 million drivers and matches missing, corrupt, or obsolete Drivers to the latest, most compatible drivers for your operating system. The e40 may get as much of the detail as a home user is likely to care about, but it does not “perfectly reproduce” it. Bring back the bikini-girl school of promotional posing, I say.

Restart your computer and enjoy the fresh driver, it is as simple as that. Go through the driver installation wizard, which should be quite straightforward. And there’s no way to make a preview interruptible, either. It’s got respectable dpi optical resolution – the resolution of the scan head itself – and outstanding dpi mechanical resolution – the size of the steps in which the scan head can be moved down the scan bed.
