Defeats the purpose of why I bought it in the first place!

 

When my friend bought the Umax Astra 1220P (Parallel Port version), I was in awe. For a parallel port model, it was pretty decent. We were no strangers to parallel port devices - they were slow, hogged CPU cycles, and lock up your PC for a while when...

Cheap

Slow (as slow as Parallel Port version)

Compromise Quality for Price? Maybe Not.

 

I bought this scanner because it was really cheap, but did I buy a lemon? Not really - I'm mostly satisfied.

Good scans, low price

Fragile design, buggy software (Mac)

First of all, I use this product at work. They give us all nice new cheap scanners when we start and I've had this one for about 8 months.

very fast and excellent scans

 

The UMAX 1220S is an excellent scanner. I puchased mine about 2 yrs ago. It is a SCSI interface, which makes it very fast. I was not happy with the SCSI adapter card it came with so I purchased an aftermarket Adaptec 2940UW PRO SCSI card. It comes with...

The scanner is fine, the support is less than wonderful

 

The price was good, and the Adobe Photo Deluxe software is very easy to use.

Umax does not respond well to emails for help. Their web site is not all that user friendly.
