I've had my Snapscan Touch for a little while now, and I've been very pleased with it. The interchangeable handles are a bit gimmicky, but look great! NB - This unit should NOT be confused with the Snapscan standard range. The 'Touch' version is higher spec. It scans fairly quickly, and the ScanWise software that comes with it is very very easy to operate. There are even some user-customisable buttons on the unit itself so you can scan direct to fax, to email and to text file. My only quibble is that the OCR software which came in the box is deeply unsteady. If you have started up ScanWise first (which launches itself if ... Read the complete review

Agfa's SnapScan Touch scanner combines some trendy design with high scan quality for a budget device. Although it has a cream body, it has a translucent white lid with a coloured insert, which can be changed to any of the six colours supplied. This should keep the iMac fraternity happy, as should the scanner's USB connection, which is equally straightforward on iMacs and PCs. The scanner's lid is hinged along its long edge, which means it takes up more room on the desk; this is a feature of dubious benefit. There's a cluster of four control buttons on the scanner's top surface, which initiate some clever software to do things like scanning an ... Read the complete review

When I first opened the box, my eyes were greeted with the good-looking Agfa Snapscan Touch. I connected it up with the easy to use USB and to the power; it was detected and installed by windows 98. Moreover, 10 minutes later I was scanning things in, however that is where the problems began. Green lines appeared all over the scanned in pictures. However, a quick re-install of the drivers fixed the problem, now the pictures were a bit grainy and of acceptable quality. After about 3 months, the green lines were back! I phoned the technical support line, and they swapped the scanner for another, anyway another scanner later and it was working. The third scanners ... Read the complete review

I bought my Agfa SnapScan Touch scanner to go with an i-mac, but it works with any USB PC. And it's so simple to use. It's an A4 600x1200 dpi scanner with removable handles in i-mac flavours. Four large buttons on the top allow you to open up the scanning software, scan to e-mail, scan to printer or scan to a file. Literally on-touch scanning that is simple for anyone to use - child or grandma. For the price - between £100 and £125 - it makes good scans for home use, such as web sites, printing photos and storing magazine articles. It comes with unsophisticated OCR technology, and I'd recommend upgrading that to TextBridge, Pagis or OmniPage, but ... Read the complete review
