The best thing about this particular scanner for me was the fact that I didn't pay a dime for it. Now I know why my sister was eager to abandon the darn thing!

Not very good

 

I bought this scanner, because it was cheap, but advertised all the same relevant specs as the competing products. The unit I bought had been refurbished. I purchased it at Fry's Electronics in another state, so returning it was not an option.

Product Specifications

The UMAX Astra 1220P not only scans photos and documents at 600x1200 dpi resolution, this top-notch flatbed scanner is built with a parallel port to provide simple installation and ease of use. Instead of SCSI connectivity, the 1220P is a quick alternative to users who need a high-powered scanning solution. It provides 36-bit color quality with a 10-bit A/D converter and UMAX patented Bit Enhancement technology. The 1220P is an excellent addition to any graphics or corporate communications department. The 1220P ships with a full-version of Adobe PhotoDeluxe, NewSoft Presto! PageManager, Caere OmniPage LE OCR, and UMAX Copy Utility. The 1220P comes with a cold cathode lamp for long life and the lid is removable for those big, three-dimensional scans. The Astra 1220P also has an optional transparency adapter to give you even more flexibility.
