Ultimate Scanner, Cheap, Cheerful!
22 February 2006
Excerpt: I've had this scanner for ages...so long that I can't remember when I actually got it! But this does show that it is built well, as it has been moved around my house to a number of different locations, and been bashed around a bit, and still works fine!
Pros: Cheap, USB powered, not bad software (except text recognition)
Excerpt: If you want a cheap efficient scanner , then this one's for you. I dont use a scanner very often but they do come in very handy if you get an important letter in the post that has to be copied off, or you borrow a book with your favorite recipe in it and cant be bothered to write it all out.
Excerpt: After my less than flattering review of the Epson Color Stylus 300, I thought it is time to embark on my next challenge: a review of the Mustek 1200 UB. This won't mean much to many of you, but it is, in fact, a colour scanner. I got the scanner when I bought my home PC several years ago.
Pros: Great software included; clear imaging
Cons: Scanning is perhaps a bit slow; scanner can be quite noisy
Excerpt: I recently wrote an review on my 6 year old almost antique printer, well here is the review of the Mustek 1200 UB Scanner that came as part of that same package, as I am not too much of a technical person, I will try and explain in plain English without the technical jargon that I feel sometimes...
Excerpt: I bought this scanner when it first came out at Sears, and it was like $89.99 for it. It was a great price back then (like 5 years ago), but now it's a lot slower than most scanners out now. It is good with scanning pictures, and also documents.
Pros: great picture scanner
Cons: takes a little bit longer than most scanners
Excerpt: It occurs again and again that one would send pictures or photos gladly by Mail to dear joy, or she on the own web page of the world to show would like. If one is not proud owner of a digital camera, or which did not make pictures to be able to usually further process remains only the alternative...
Excerpt: Since upgrading my super cool Multivisions computer to the wonderful Windows XP, my trusty old brick of a scanner that was a Colorado Direct 9600 model would not work because there was no updated drivers from the makers.
Pros: Price is cheap for a good budget scanner
Cons: If I was paying £100 then I would pick faults . Im not so I wont
Excerpt: As far as scanners go, this one should more than meet the needs of users who adapt it to any non-professional application. I acquired the Mustek 1200 UB just over a year ago (costing about £45, though this is a vague estimate, since it came bundled with my PC), and have been more than satisfied with...
Pros: good value for money, convenient USB plug - n - play feature, includes a decent OCR text recognition program
Cons: a fairly redundant image - editing program, requires a USB port to function
You wont find better than this for the same price.

Excerpt: I bought my computer in a full package deal and this was the scanner that I received with it. Obviously my first thoughts were that it would be a load of rubbish. I mean, it is a really cheap scanner. You know the drill when you buy these packages, pay £40 extra and get a better scanner etc.
