Umax - AstraSlim


The AstraSlim is the cheapest of the scanners in this group test and also the slowest, but in its favour it is remarkable thin - just 34mm - and the images it produces belie its price ...

Umax AstraSlim


This scanner does an excellent job of any type of scanning thrown at it, but the software leaves something to be desired for more advanced users.

Product Specifications

Umax presents the AstraSlim, its first CIS scanner. Instead of the normal CCD array this scanner uses Contact Image Sensors (CIS), which allow for very compact construction of flatbed scanner. The AstraSlim can be stowed away easily into a notebook carry case or a desk drawer. The dark blue up cover and the dark gray chassis result in a stunning product that stands out against most other IT-peripherals. Furthermore the AstraSlim is USB-powered. The scanner instead of needing an external power supply draws its power directly from the USB port, meaning no heavy adapters are required and fewer cables. AstraSlim is provided with an easy-to-use software package. Push the scan button and the Scanmanager automatically appears without having to manually start the scan driver. Scanmanager gives you the option of where the scan is sent to for, e.g. printer, e-mail, fax, file, OCR software or image editing software.
