I am getting very fond of shopping at CSN Stores lately. They have just about everything you are looking for. Just recently I was needing a good photo scanner. Ethan's 2nd birthday theme was Maisy Mouse. Since this is a European cartoon there are no party supplies available in the U.S. I had to buy some books and scan them to use so I had something to decorate with! I spent a long time looking through all the different photo scanners available at CSN Stores. While I wanted a 3 in one photo scanner that also copied, faxed and scanned I really needed a flatbed scanner to scan the books with. I finally decided on the EPSON Perfection V300 Photo Flatbed Scanner.

My EPSON Perfection V300 Scanner Experience!
I was really excited to get the scanner so quickly after purchase. It only took a few minutes to get it plugged in and the software installed. I couldn't wait to see the quality of this scanner. The first thing I scanned was some old photos. Here's my old Glamour Shots pictures I had taken right before I turned 18. Don't laugh now...
Next, I scanned some images from Ethan's Maisy Mouse book to use for his party. Here is an image I scanned then edited (cropped and added wording) to make stickers for the napkins. The images I scanned turned out so clear! To see more photos from his party you can see my post here.
I have used the EPSON Perfection V300 Photo Flatbed Scanner to scan several things. I have used it in a pinch to scan a document to email to our CPA since I did not have a fax. The quality and the clarity of the scans exceeds my expectations and I am very happy with my purchase.
