    Not had the 5800 But have had a microtek 4800. I'm using the scanmaker 4900 now both have been good to me, no problems here with either scanner.

    Yes Quality is very good I've scanned and printed alot of pictures and been happy with them all, even better after I installed my new printer
    (canon I860) awhile back.

    I have a Via based system so it was a little pain to install the scanner but worth it I guess I like it.

    I used to have a 5800 and I really enjoyed it. Worked great.
