NO SUPPORT FOR WIN XP PRO

meikel14, Amazon
19 February 2002
  • Summary: I've recently upgrated from ME to XP Prp and found that this scanner is not working (not recognized) under Windows XP. Microtek doesn't seem to have specific drivers fron WIN XP, only for WIN 2000, 98, and 95.

Junk

SANDRA GOBIN, Amazon
18 February 2002
  • Summary: I purchased 3 of these scanners because it received such a great review. I can only describe the product as junk. To attempt to use it I had to "rig" the scanner by disconnecting and connecting it before using it and sometimes during use because it would freeze.

No customer support and Bad Quality

Amazon
8 February 2002
  • Summary: Impossible is the word to describe trying to get in touch with Microtek customer service. Not only is the product extremely unreliable, but customer service and technical support would rather you not call them if you have problems.

poor support for Windows XP Professional

A. E. Gomez, Amazon
1 February 2002
  • Summary: Microtek's web site claims that this will work with Windows XP. I had to e-mail their sales staff to ask a technical support question ("how do you get this to work?") and they just said "it will work with USB". Wrong. I've removed and reinstalled the driver that "works with Windows XP" many times.

For just $130.00, I think it�s a good deal.

  • Summary: This is my 2nd Microtek Scanner and I am relatively pleased with it this far. After I downloaded the updated driver supporting Windows ME, I could quickly install the scanner, although the "Scan Detector" does not always recognize the scanner.

One of my Worst Experiences

David Sadowsky, Amazon
11 January 2002
  • Summary: I purchased the scanner new. After installation I could make 2 scans and then the scanner (or software) would lock up and my coputer could not find it. I sent emails to tech support and followed all their instructions and the result was always the same.

V6upl

Amazon
30 December 2001
  • Summary: We just purchased and returned two other scanners, one by mustek and one by umax. The first thing I noticed about this scanner is it's weight - it is well made and not flimsy like so many scanners you see.

Good scanner for the price

SteveC, Amazon
21 December 2001
  • Summary: The Microtek Scanmaker V6upl is a good scanner at a decent price. It scans photos with good color and detail. The PhotoImact software (included) is excellent software for making adjustments to the photos. Forget the Adoble Photo Deluxe 2 (also included).
