The SlimScan C6 from Microtek is a flatbed, desktop, single-pass color
scanner. This ultra-slim scanner aptly justifies its name, has a
parallel-port, and uses CIS (Contact Image Sensor) technology.

The SlimScan ships with a power adapter, a parallel port cable, and an
installation guide. It also has a parallel port for your printer, and
supports Windows. The accompanying CD-ROM contains a mix of scanning,
image editing, OCR, and fax software.

The SlimScan scans at a resolution of 600×1,200 dpi. Its overall image
quality is above average. We scanned a few photographs and it gave us
sharp images. To further test this, we compared it with an old HP ScanJet
and found that the image quality didn’t vary as much as the cost.
However, a CIS scanner is unable to handle 3D objects.

It’s fairly easy to set up. The push button on the scanner launches
the ScanSuite software that gives you a shortcut to all your scanning
needs. ScanWizard, the scanner controller software, allows you to activate
your scanner from any Twain-compatible software. The accompanying OCR
software–OmniPage–makes it easy to scan text documents that you can
edit or save in your word processor.

Priced at Rs 5,750 SlimScan C6 is an affordable scanner for home
and small-office users. It offers a warranty of one year.
