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!

  • 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
