Product Specifications

Packed with the latest scanning technology, Microtek's ScanMaker 6100 offers 3200 x 6400-dpi optical resolution, built-in 4"x5" transparency adapter, Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0) interface, and eight function buttons for automating the most common scanning tasks. With its slim, sleek design, this powerhouse is the perfect choice for small office or home users who demand the highest levels of performance, style and value. SilverFast SE 6 features a host of highly intuitive professional scanning options designed to deliver the best possible scan quality from the ScanMaker 6100.
