Umax Astra 4000U

 

High resolution and large scan bed make this an excellent choice for scanning graphics.

The Astra 4000U's high resolution, large scan bed, and formidable extra-cost transparency adapter make it an excellent choice for scanning all kinds of graphics, both large and small.

Umax Astra 4000U

 

The 36-bit Umax Astra 4000U ($180 street) and 48-bit Astra 4400 ($100) are both 1,200-dpi scanners, but they are very different in terms of features.

Good hardware, but use other software!

 

The body of this scanner has rather impressive dimensions. A little strangely on rather traditional body looks the bright orange plank of the holder of cover; under which right edge is located the transport clamper. The cover is lifted up and is fixed...

Great quality of scanning, reasonable price, tech support, MAC and PC

Large dimensions, rather noisy, low productivity, week software

Umax - don't do it

 

I am an HP scanner user and still have my old 4p in the closet, which I am going to dig out and begin to use again.

14" bed, which is hard to find these days

Slow slow slow

At the original $400 price, I would have turned away from this one. Now, and until the end of 2/01 it can be yours for less than $200 and a $20 rebate besides.
