Pricey but well-made--fits Epson v700 scaner perfectly
on November 12, 2011
I would like to have been able to buy a dust cover like this for less than the 24 bucks plus shipping I paid here, but I must say it is very well made (very neatly sewn) and overall I'm pleased with the purchase. The cover is a neutral gray in color as shown in product photo here. Excellent, snug, custom-like fit for my Epson V700 scanner. Appears to be waterproof (or at least spillproof.) It is deep enough that it hangs below the bottom of the scanner slightly and should really keep the dust off of it. The manufacturer offers padded and other versions of this cover for a few more $$ on their site but this one is plenty thick enough to protect the scanner from scratches or bumps, as well as keeping dust off/out of it. Since there are no other reviews here yet, I'll add this: The description says it is made from "strong silver nylon with smooth, PVC liner inside". I thought that sounded "cheap" but I took a chance and find the material to be more like "cordura" (heavy material similar to what camera bags are made from), and the liner is not that thin PVC plastic that soon rips or falls apart, as you might picture from this description. It is bonded to the cordura and I don't think you could puncture it with anything less than a sharp knife. It does not SMELL like PVC, I was glad to find. There is a slight chemical odor to the material but only when you are right up to it. I've owned PVC-material 3-ring binders I could smell across the room and this does not seem to be the same kind of material at all. OK, more than you needed to know, but if you are in need of a dust cover for your scanner, I think you'll be happy with this one, if you can pay the price for some quality.
