I agree with you, quality is very nice.

If someone were to come pick up one of my FREE scanners, transport, set
it up, and make it work, they would agree that they suck. Unless they
were a Crosfield tech that is. BTW they do have Macintosh interface
cards, a $60K value!

I think I'm going to post them on the internet for sale to bait in a
419 guy/gal and go for a $50k + for the wall!
