Re: Pissy Weird purchase by any chance??
No, it is an Epson; the model number has rubbed off, but I think it was a 6500 ?? We got the first one with our first Win95 office box.
I had two*, with the slide/negative adapters; to this day it is as fast at standard dpi speeds than my Epson Workforce AIO, or any of the newer, dedicated scanners I have lying around.
For day to day, I use the Workforce (because it has an auto-feed system), but for photos I use the old one, as the colour correction is better.
*My sister broke the one - god knows how; probably yelled at it; the same way she yelled at her PC and killed the HDD.
