Loathsome piece of junk

 

I got this thing about 3 years ago. It's *never* worked reliably. The unit is bulky and very slow. The speed isn't surprising, since it connects via the old-fashioned parallel-port, and its size isn't the end of the world, given the cost. Or rather ...

Cheap. Passable quality if it works (ha ha ha..)

Bulky. Slow. Doesn't work. Ever.

Comes with a ton of software, modestly priced, instruction manual

I couldn't get my computer to recognize the scanner. No quick buttons.

All I want is a motor!

Inexpensive

Unrepairable

Excellent quality through and through

 

This is my first scanner, so I am no pro to the business, but I can tell you that what I see on the screen after a scan truly impressed me from a scanner of this price. For those that don't have a USB port on older machines (like me), or for those that...

Good scanner at a good price

 

I bought this scanner about a year and a half ago. I got it on sale for $89. It was semi easy to install. It was a little tricky because it interferes with the printer so you may have to un-install and re-install the printer. The software was fast and...

Great price, pretty good size

slow

The little scanner that could.

 

Great scans for the price, durable, reliable.

A little slow.
