A great little scanner!!

 

I wanted a scanner, and alas I found it. I bought it about 2 years ago, and after three moves, it's still in very good shape!

It just works!

No power switch.

Hard to Beat All-Purpose Scanner

 

The 1220 U is hard to beat for an all-purpose scanner. It's USB interface make it a snap to install, and the included software is all you need to create high-quality scans. This scanner is perfect for scanning pictures to the web, personal photo...

Easy to install, easy to use, quality scans

Not okay for older systems that don't have USB.
