A book scanner for under $250

Having mentioned two scanners last week that will do 1,200 pages per hour and are quite expensive, I feel that I should mention something in a lower price range.

The Alestron Opticbook 3600 is a manual scanner that can do single pages as well as books, and costs under $250. The bundled software allow for OCR and PDF creation, as well as image editing. For an organization that needs a flatbed scanner and would like the possibility of scanning books, this piece of equipment would be worth checking out.
