OpticBook 3600 scanner & Windows 7

Hello to everybody :-)
I discovered this forum yesterday and this is my first message here (forgive my poor english expression).

I really need a new scanner, mainly for scanning books I have to read and study. I can't destroy books and common flatbed scanners are not really suitable for that task.

The OpticBook 3600 looks very promising and is affordable (though expensive for my budget).

But I fear it can't be used on Windows 7. Did someone have experience with the OpticBook and the next Microsoft operating system? I would buy immediately it if I was certain that current Vista drivers are working with this scanner.

Thanks a lot for all answers.

Good idea, JSWolf. I just mailed their support.
But honestly, I trust more users than consumer support. So any true experience is still welcome.

Cheers
