Works fine with SCSI under Linux here in the year 2015!

  • Summary: So many people write off older, but still decent scanners like this one because of windows software being old or no longer viable (as this one's software won't work past Windows XP). But there's always Linux! Linux will support SCSI for years to come.

works fine

  • Summary: While not for everyone this is a great scanner. Its brother the 5080C does 24bit color and scanns both sides of a document in one pass. With the adaptec SCSI board which can still be purchased anywhere, this scanner interfaces to windows xp easily.

BUYER BEWARE!

Lauren Koenig, Amazon
29 July 2010
  • Summary: This item is not what you think it is! It's from way back in 1995, which is a technological ice age ago. It requires a 40 pin SCSI cable to run (which is tricky for the average non-IT person to install). It requires special software to run it, and it doesn't scan to PDF. Yes, that's right, no PDFs.

Fast and Accurate High Volume Scanning

  • Excerpt: I have used this scanner to archive legal case documentation. It is very fast, accurate and easy to use. It produces excellent images and handles a large range of paper weights and colours. One of the biggest problems was keeping up with its demand for more originals to scan!!
  • Pros: Its very fast for black and white documents
  • Cons: Only scans in B & W, Not very good at half tones
