Microtek Scanmaker 5950 Pro

on 11/10/2006

Replaced a 1 1/2 year old Epson single sheet scanner for this that has multisheet capability. Found these scans to be much slower, harder to get correct adjustments as easily, driver & software much quirkier even using newest version, often have to restart computer if it does not find scanner, sometimes scanwizard freezes, multi scans do work but sometimes because of difficulty making adjustments have to redo them, so time savings have not been what I hoped.

Disappointed Purchase

by Paul Kankula on 5/10/2008

When looking at this Chinese made scanner, it appears to be of high quality. However, the Auto Document Feeder pickup roller is a bad design - it's not really not very dependable. The software that comes with this scanner is simply an over-kill and not very User friendly! Nothing is made simple and there is even 2 different Control Panel versions are available. I don't use a scanner that often and I simply refuse using a product that requires me to re-read a tutorial every time I want to use it. Everything appears to be a 8-step confusing process... So I learned an expensive lesson. I'm going to switch back to using my Canon scanner, that normally, requires 2 steps to scan & save a multi-page document. This scanner will simply get put in my pile of non-wanted stuff and donated to some charity. It's my recommendation that before you buy this scanner, that you actually view their Control Panel software and see if you can figure how to make it work. Oh yes - I was told by their Customer Service Dept. that this scanner would do auto-feed duplex sheet scans (2 sided). Well ... it doesn't.
