Re: VueScan & Epson 1200S success & question.



<x-charset iso-8859-1>I have the 1200S. I'm not sure why there are shouts of false advertising
from Epson on this. I've forgotten exactly how I learned of the lack of
48-bit output, but I definitely knew about it before purchasing the scanner.
I think it's in the specs page on their website.
