Benq 7400UT

Benq conveniently bundles the 7400UT with a USB 2.0 card, but this scanner's image quality needs improvement

WHAT'S HOT: The Benq 7400UT is one of only three scanners that we've tested with 2400-by-4800-dpi resolution; the other two were intended for use in workgroups rather than small or home offices. The 7400UT's 2400-dpi capacity lets you enlarge a 35mm slide to an 8-by-12-inch print without losing image quality. The 7400UT supports USB 2.0, but it's also backward compatible with USB 1.1. As most computers don't yet include USB 2.0, Benq conveniently bundles this scanner with a USB 2.0 add-in card. The 7400UT scans both photo prints and transparent materials right off the shelf with its built-in transparency adapter and sturdy film holders, which accept material as large as 4 by 5 inches. Benq sweetens the deal with 24/7 toll-free phone support.
