You can tell a bit about how well an iSis is doing by the sounds it makes scanning.
Seems good on that criterion. Thanks.
I'd describe it as sounding about like a muffled Epson dot-matrix printer.
Whir, whir, whir .... CR-clunk
whir, whir, whir .... CR-clunk
It does set up a minor amount of vibration sometimes ... the flip open lid? ... but i'll put my finger on the lid and it settles down nicely.
My Canon 9000-2 is definitely louder ... with a CLUNK
as it starts moving right-to-left and then CLUNK
as it reverses direction to go left-to-right.
