Acer CM has just released a 1200x2400dpi scanner (5000U) to replace the current 5300U model. Through the use of interpolation technology and an advanced CCD-based engine, the Acer CM 5000U can attain optical resolutions of up to 19,200dpi and 48-bit colour for hyper-realistic scanned images. The 5000U raises productivity with fast scans - 10 seconds for an A4-size document at 300dpi - and is designed to be easy on the eye with smooth curves and a user-friendly USB interface. The new model maintains Acer CM's easy-to-use one-touch button controls: Scan-to-Web, Scan-to-Palm, Scan and Scan-to-Email, allowing users to scan and upload images to the Web, Palm (or compatible PDA) or e-mail with the single push of a button. In terms of software, the unit comes bundled with a suite of scanning and imaging applications, including MiraScan driver; Ulead's PhotoExpress image-processing application; ABBYY FineReader OCR package, and a copier document duplication utility.
The Acer CM 5000U retails for $199 (including GST).
