      Hello Caroline,

      I have had a CCTV at home and one at work for years. I would be hesitent
      to recommend either brand as I don't know if the quality is stil the same.
      I can, however, suggest some features you will want to consider. Both my
      CCTVs are black & white only. Color adds more to the price and I have not
      found that I missed having the option of color. One feature I did not get
      and wish I had is a guide line. When moving across the page, I often lose
      my place when going back to the left to read the next line. As I recall,
      there was a feature that simply had a line or two visible on the screen so
      you could line up your document. Hopefully you have a place nearby where
      you can try different CCTVs in person. If not, some dealers will actually
      bring one out to your house.
      Good luck.

        Hi: I currently have a "Rainbow Alladian". It is full color, black and
        white; white and black; blue background, yellow print; and a few others. I really
        like it a lot. At work I had one exactly the same but black/white;
        white/black with guidelines. The guidelines were great for reading numeric tables and
        other work related stuff; however, for simple reading, I found the guide to be
        annoying--I could find my place based on "context of what was being read".
        My CCTV at home is about 12 years old; so not sure what the current quality is.
        If I had to buy a new one, I would probably go with the "Merlin". . .The
        Distributors will come to your house and show you all the products . . .just call
        them. Hope this helps. Catherine

          Hi Caroline

          I use a Smartview 3000 from Humanware (formerly Pulse Data). It is
          monochrome with output for a computer monitor. Works very well. I acquired
          this C.C.T.V second hand a few months ago when my 18 year old Telesensory
          Chroma failed and was not repairable.
          Before buying this unit I looked at the current models of Smartview from
          Humanware and Clearview from Quantum Technology. These current models have
          auto-focus which is a very useful feature but they also use an electronic
          control for zooming which is slow to respond. I much prefer the mechanical
          zoom control.

          The monitor you intend to use with the C.C.T.V. is an important
          consideration. If you have a computer you might prefer to use that monitor
          than have two monitors. Make sure the unit has a computer output if you
          intend to use the computer monitor.

          Hope this helps.

            Hello,
            I recieved my first cctv in 1999, to which I still use today.However, its a
            black/white
            Optelec.. I too what a newer model.It is very differcult to read large books
            on it.
            Can someone tell me which ones are colored and automatic with a bigger
            platform on it?
            I have a person coming from the Linc Program,so I need a starting point in
            which to direct him/her
            towards the right cctv of myself.My cctv is extremely top heavy therefore,I
            never move it around.
            Is their a flatscreen cctv?
