Summary: XP 450 Visioneer Scanner Great scanner, however sometimes the ADF gets touchy amid stacks of documents, and doesn't feed just one sheet at a time, but the balance of stack. BUT..............would not want to be without it.!! Would like to see tech available without billing time in USA.
You CAN get it to work in Win 7 64-bit, even if below pt no. 85-0117-100
19 December 2012
Summary: I use Win 7 64-bit Ultimate. This afternoon, 19th December 2012, I installed Windows Virtual Machine on to Win 7, and I run Win XP inside the VM so that I can use my beloved Visioneer XP 450 (the expensive versions of Win 7 64-bit allow this set up, the lower ones can't install VM/XP). I have to gmail the scans to myself to get them out of the Virtual Machine but it's no big deal.
Summary: I have an older version of this same model #. Visioneer no longer supports it, stating "Scanners with Part Number 85-0117-000 are not compatible with Windows 7 and Vista. Consider Trade Up for a newer model." To trade up means paying to ship the thing back to Visioneer at my expense and waiting 6 weeks for some sort of rebate. Terrible!
Summary: At the recommendation of some positive reviews, I purchased 3 Strobe XP 450's about 3 years ago. I can tell you that I have had SO many problems - the main one being that, with all of the scanners, there is at least a 50/50 chance that after scanning one file, you need to restart your computer in order to start another one, as a message consistently comes up - "This scanner is being used by another application". I am ready to buy three different scanners and trash these.
