Microtek ScanMaker V6UPL


The ScanMaker V6UPL is hard to beat for SOHO and home users who want to scan large materials, such as artwork, spreadsheets, newspapers, and oversize books. This model is also a good choice for those with PCs lacking USB ports.

Microtek ScanMaker V6UPL Flatbed Scanner


Originally installed on WinME and worked great. Read most of the recent reviews about XP and thought the worst. Upgraded system to WinXPPro and found scanner works fine for all modes. Even slide attachment works great.

Legal size scanning

Microtek ScanMaker V6UPL Flatbed Scanner


Microtek ScanMaker V6UPL works with Windows XP. After installing Windows XP Pro, the Microtek Scanmaker V6UPL would not work, even though it worked fine with Windows 98. Downloading the latest driver from Microtek did NOT solve the problem. Windows XP...

Scans legal size paper

Never could get the negative film attachmet to work

Microtek ScanMaker V6UPL Flatbed Scanner


I wish I had read all of the negative comments about this scanner before I purchased it - I thought I'd done my homework, but I guess I just listened to the hype. It's 3 months out of warranty and in "Preview" mode the carriage is stuck and makes a lot...

Legal size. Fairly easy to use when it works

I hate spending money for something that has to be replaced 3 months outside of the warranty because the repair will cost more than the item
