I have an Epson J192A which I purchased directly from the manufacturer (after carefully weighing my scannig needs with the representative ;) ) in the latter half of last year, and the bulb is already on the way out.
If anyone can recommend a larger scale flat bed scanner that they love, that is a workhorse, that will not die quickly after repeated use, and is all-around dependable, I would be very grateful to hear your words of wisdom. For now I am stuck with being at the mercy of Kinko's, Gnomon Copy and any other purveyors of large scanner services and long turnaround times.
Any ideas would be most apprreciated!! :)
