Hi,

I just got and Epson 3170 scanner over the weekend
and in closely examining it, it appears that there
is some sort of outgassing film on the glass inside
the scanner that I can obviously not get to. Is
this a common issue? is it important? The test
scans that I have done haven't shown anything, but
I think I am going to be returning it anyway.

Comments???

I was about to buy this model. Should I avoid, or is it non-specific?

If there's plastic used in the manufacture, then it will outgass. One
consideration might be, is how easy is it to get inside to clean.

Are there any models of scanner which allow easy access to the underside
of the glass? It seems like it would be such a simple matter to make the
glass hinged on one side so it could be lifted up and cleaned.

Each company varies, even model to model.

Microtek made one that was a literal 'snap' to clean.
HP 6300 has four screws
Epson is a PITA!
