Best non-DIY book scanners

Built a scanner? Started to build a scanner? Record your progress here. Doesn't need to be a whole scanner - triggers and other parts are fine. Commercial scanners are fine too.

I personally have used Plustek OpticBook 4800, Plustek OpticBook A300, Avision FB2280E and Microtek XT-3500 book scanners. I have been wanting to write review for long time on each of them, because there is some aspects you can see only in real life.
...
I have just purchased a Microtek XT3500 specifically for scanning books to searchable PDF and would love to read your review of this scanner!

I‘m a students majoring in Chemical Engineering. I’m user of Czur book scanner(some people also mentioned it ;) ).
I’ve searched for an efficient book scanner for some time and Czur may be the fastest and most affordable one for me. Most book scanners in the market cost much more than my budget and are huge. Particularly, I’m fascinated by its speed. Honestly, I’m not patient person and scanning speed is an important consideration to pick up a book scanner. The actual speed of Czur can reach to 60-80 pages per minute.
I’m not sure if all scanners in the market generate the same results. Czur is able to restore the book pages,separate them into two sides and export into PDF document, which is very convenient to make ebooks.

However, it’s true that Czur is not perfect. The removal of fingerprints doesn’t work very well sometimes. Fortunately, you can see the preview on the software. When scanning glossy materials, the results are not very good. In such circumstance, I use extra lights.

How about these: http://www.book2net.net/index.php/en/pr ... k-scanners
with this 71 Megapixels camera: http://www.mv.microbox.de/ or http://www.book2net.net/index.php/en/pr ... ion-camera
Sensor type | CMOS area sensor 71MP, electronic shutter
Sensor dimension | 10000(H) x 7096(W) effective active pixels

Far beyond of what this forum is about: Do it yourself...

an interesting feature, though, of this book scanner: http://www.book2net.net/index.php/en/pr ... ok-scanner
The platen is not lifted vertically from the book, but also moves to the back, getting out of the way of the operator touching the book in order to turn the pages.
