    Best Buy carries Microtek (and other) scanners. There are several
    Best Buy locations in your area. See [url]http://www.bestbuy.com/[/url] for
    pricing on scanners (look under computers) and for locations (look
    under store locator).

    I've found that Best Buy usually has as good a price as you will find
    anywhere on electronics. I've compared several items, including
    on-line purchases, and it's never more than a few bucks different.

    The best thing is that if you happen to get that electronic item that
    is a lemon from the get-go, you can carry it in for an exchange. Best
    Buy is pretty good at accepting returns without question.

    Buying on-line is a high risk for electronics. The shipping charges
    are high, and you must pay shipping charges to return anything
    defective. You've gotta save 30 or 40 percent to make it worthwhile.
    And, you generally don't.

    I'm in no way affiliated with B&H, but they're one of the best companies to deal
    with.
