ScanMaker 6000 is decent scanner

bid_junkie9, Ebay
31 December 2009
  • Summary: I agree with some points from the previous reviewer. The ScanWizard software is clunky, though I never had it quit or fail to run. I have the most current version. Also, the scanner is slow to start (about 30 seconds) while it waits for the bulb to warm up.

Decent scanner, but slower than usual, buggy software

macgoddess44, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this scanner because I have had two previous scanners and they were both Microtek, so I am familiar with them. The only thing I notice that is different between my last scanner (ScanMaker 4900) and this one is that scanning is much slower.

Microtek 6000 scanner

  • Summary: I bought this scanner for my son at Christmas. I didn't hook it up for about 3 weeks. What a waste of $100! It has never worked. The pics have a purple hue on them which we cant correct. Refuse to pay $30/hr for tech support.

It does not work on Mac OSX 10.3

S. Takada "ST", Amazon
17 August 2004
  • Summary: The latest version 7.16 Scan Wizardry does not work. They say it is compatible with OSX 10.3. However, G5, Powerbook G4 12", I-Mac G4 running 10.3 had crashed at the start up of the program. Customer support will charge you $30 per every 30min. if you call to them. Do not buy it. Do not waste money.

Beware of this product

RLV, Amazon
23 July 2004
  • Summary: This product has NO SUPPORT, and Microtek will not answer E-mail or online product support requests. The drivers bundled and shipped with the product are abysmal. Before buying check out the numerous sites with endless users complaining about their "useless paperweights".

Nice scans and options.... but...

Amazon
12 June 2004
  • Summary: It scans normal pictures beautifully and quicker than my old scanner. The buttons are convenient and easy to use, as is the included software. My only two gripes are that the scanner glass had a few white flecks on the INSIDE of the glass (and no way to clean them off), and the fact that images...

Don't waste your money!

Amazon
3 June 2004
  • Summary: It's incredibly slow (and NOT because it's scanning at a high resolution - it takes years just to get the software to launch in the first place), insanely loud, and doesn't produce great results. It was issued to me at work - if I'd bought it myself, I'd have returned it immediately.

Wow! Awesome Product!

  • Summary: Picked up a Scanmaker 6000 from Best Buy over the weekend and was really suprised. I had never heard of Microtek before and was going to pick up a HP but the specs on this were incredible. 6400x3200 DPI resolution. Pretty easy to setup and install.
