Having heard so much cheering about the Umax Astra 610P parallel port
scanner, I decided to get one of my own. As people here have related, it
runs just fine under Win-OS/2, and there's no need for fiddling to get
it to work. Scans come out looking great.
I thought everyone might like to know that Web Auction
(http://www.webauction.com) is selling these scanners fairly frequently.
I bought mine for $50 (refurbished). So I got a great color scanner for
the price of a pair of pants.
Two questions: first, how do you turn off the lamp without turning the
scanner off? Second, does anyone else have an experience where Page
manager stops working, and one needs to exit it and restart it to make
it work again?
