    "I need the best desktop scanner on earth. My work requires me to upload a lot of documents to the internet and I want a scanner that can do that with the best precision. Cost is not an option for my needs and boy does this scanner satisfy that with a 2,000 price tag. If I ever lose my job, at least I will have an expensive paperweight. "

    "The Samsung CLX-6260FW is a wireless color printer that easily connects to your computer via USB. With a 25 page per minute output, it's not the fastest printer available, however, it does get the job done well. It also offers scanning, copying, and faxing capabilities as well."

    "This is another great offering from Canon in the printer/copier/scanner arena. Quality, top notch copies, great scans, and a very quite printer is what you can expect once you start using it. Also, these last much longer than any of their competitors. I have had one for almost 6 months now. Still going strong. If you want quality, go buy a Canon printer . Sure they are a little more than the cheap printers you can find, but you also get what you pay for in this world. Great product."
