Why choose the over the competition? In my personal opinion the M1060 11X17 scanner is going to be the best solution for those customers looking to scan a small amount of 11X17 documents. Plus the New M1060 scanner is not going to break the bank. Keep in mind most 11X17 scanners are made for mid volume production scanning so those scanners cost much more to purchase. The example would be the Canon DR-6030C and the Fujitsu 6670 PSIP Scanners.
. The Canon M1060 again will not break the bank. The unit comes with a 1 year manufacture warranty (AUR) this allows the customer complete confidence in scanning for the 1st year and if the scanner does have a manufactured problem the unit will be replaced allowing the customer to be up and running the next day. The customer has the option to purchase POST Warranty service on the Canon M1060 scanner for less than the larger Canon or Fujitsu models. The annual service on the M1060 Scanner is about $445.00 per year or you can opt for the multi year value ad contracts at discounted prices. Replacement Roller Kits can be purchased to ensure proper feeding during the course of the year as needed and are end user replaceable. Thus keeping the cost down and the Total Cost of Ownership minimal. The Canon M1060 scanner is a great low cost scanner for the consumer that has the need for 11X17 scanning down to business card size documents.
The upside is the Canon M160 is fast at 60 pages per minute and supports up to legal size documents through the feeder. This is great for the ever day scanning of business documents, documents not bound or loose letter documents. Not to mention in most cases the 11X17 Flatbed is always used to scan books, fragile documents, magazines, photos or drawings. Again this is a great 11X17 scanning solution for under $2,000.00
