Default Best Scanner for Graded cards?

Hello everyone....

Need a bit of advice on a great scanner for graded cards. My "all in one" just be a "all in none" and I will probably move on to a printer and a scanner independently. I have always been impressed with the scans of some sellers and auction houses while others leave a lot to be desired. I have never had a lot of luck with good scans for graded cards.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks!

I was having the same problem and I finally had had it this past week and bought a Canoscan 9000F and am very happy with the images it has been cranking out. I used to have a pretty good Epson back a few years back but when I got a new computer it wasn't compatable with Windows 7 so I ended up having to scrap it and was left with my all-in-one and was REALLY disappointed in the scans.

**If you read any of the old threads about this subject it is all-important to get a scanner with a CCD and not aCIS scanning element.

Al--Don't waste time on anything other than a Canon 9000F. It reproduces images accurately, as this cropped scan (T209-1) from an SGC 50 holder reveals.

Cheers, Mike

PS--I'm always looking for T209, both series.

Thats the whole key to everything, if you want to scan things in slabs, its essential for great scans to get any scanner with a CCD and not a CIS element.

Ok, dumb question, how do I know if I have CCD or CIS. I have a LEXMARK Pro-200 scanner/printer/fax and whatever else it does.

Thanks guys. I read the old threads and have been unable to see in the specifications whether they have CCD technology. Based on the fact that all of you recommend the Cannon... I think that I will go with that. Thanks for the help... Looks like $175 is about the right price for that one....

While researching I also found the Epson V600... which seems about the same ($170) and mentions 3D objects which sounds good for holders.

Will probably go with the Cannon though.... love those scans that you guys posted. Thanks.

I purchased a CanoScan 5600f based on a recommendation from here, and could not be more satisfied. I'm not sure how the features compare to the 9000f, but I imagine the element would be similar (the 5600f definitely has a CCD element). The 5600f is also on Amazon right now for $100.
