Ultimate Scanner, Cheap, Cheerful!

  • 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! However, even though it is durable, it is slow, taking about 30 seconds on average to scan 1 page. This doesn't sound too bad, but compared to some it is very slow, but for the price you really ...
  • Pros: Cheap, USB powered, not bad software (except text recognition)
  • Cons: Slow, Text recognition software is hopeless

  • Excerpt: "...with it I got the Mustek 1200 UB Plus scanner. Borrowed the PC repair man from the local IT shop who came round and set it all up for me and showed me how to use it all. (All went well and we married this year, I know it's off topic but sorry). Anyhow, so I have this scanner. Great! Soon I was borrowing photo's from all my family to scan and have copies of them backed up onto floppy disc's. (Sigh... they were the days! Now using CD's and DVD's ...
  • Pros: Ease of use and long lasting
  • Cons: None that spring to mind

  • Excerpt: "...web pages again. I found this Mustek for around £30 quid, does A4 paper and is USB...perfect. When I first used it I got the PC to pick the drivers off the disc without actually loading it. No problems. I had to reformat my computer and made the mistake of installing the disc. Everytime I tried to use the scanner I had a message saying I had overloaded the usb ports, and then the scanner wouldnt work. I soon dumped all that and put it ...
  • Pros: Quiet and compact
  • Cons: Dont Use The Software

The Ultimate in Home Scanners

  • Excerpt: "...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. I do not use it that often, but it certainly comes in handy at times when I need a quick copy and it is inconvenient to go out and get a photocopy. Let me tell you a little more about it. The Mustek UB 1200 is a nice compact scanner measuring 21.6cm by 29.7 cm (8.5" ...
  • Pros: Great software included; clear imaging
  • Cons: Scanning is perhaps a bit slow; scanner can be quite noisy

  • Excerpt: "...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 goes over us non technical folks heads. I don’t use it perhaps as frequently as some would require, maybe in the whole 6 years I’ve had the scanner probably scanned around 200 times or so, but I believe it’s a good ...
  • Pros: It does the job

Good scanner overall...

  • 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. Overall I give it a rating of 3.5 out of 5 because it gave me a hard time after a while, and there was no need for me to stress over the scanner. It does not have any features on it. You just plug it up to ...
  • Pros: great picture scanner

  • Excerpt: "...range and he recommended the Mustek 1200 UB Plus, which had the new software and drivers on the disk rather than downloading them from a website. I was a little unsure of the scanner because of the cheapest model, but was reassured when talking to the salesman while paying for it. He told me he used the same model scanner at home and he rated it far better over much higher priced models and he found the quality of the scanner very high. You can ...
  • 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: "...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 its performance. Its plug-n-scan status means that, through a USB interface, one need only plug it into one’s PC for the green light to come on and for it to start working. The necessity of an additional power supply is thus eliminated entirely (though a ...
  • 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

  • Excerpt: "...cannot understand is, how do Mustek sell it so cheaply. Why cannot everyone else? $75 dollars is not going to blast you into massive debt is it? Get yourself down to the shop tomorrow and invest in one of these scanners. The way people put it down and critiscise it all of the time, it may be a good investment. It may be worth a lot of money in the future. Then again, forget that last sentence. You don't have to break the bank to obtain one of ...
  • Pros: Good value for money .
  • Cons: You need plenty of time on your hands .
