Astra 4900 High-Speed USB 2.0 Scanner - Refurbished
The Astra 4900 features 1200 x 2400 dpi and 48-bit color depth as well as the innovative Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface. The high data transfer rate because of this interface makes this scanner ideal for users with high demands where speed is essential, and is easy for beginners because of its intuitive driver and application software.
The advantage of this unit is that existing USB1.1 cable and interfaces can also be used. Although the data transfer rate is lower with USB 1.1 cable, the backward compatible USB 2.0 interface is ideal for those who may wish to upgrade in the near future.
The Astra 4900 is compatible with Windows 98SE/ME /2000 and XP. The bundled software contains ArcSoft PhotoImpression, PhotoPrinter and PhotoBase for image editing as well as Abbyy FineReader Sprint for the optical character recognition.
4 push buttons E-Mail, Scan, Copy and Fax on the front of the scanner enables convenient and effective scanning. With a push of a button pictures can be scanned directly to an image editing software, to a printer, to an E-mail or sent as a fax.
Because of the resolution of 1200 x 2400 dpi, 48-bit color depth and the high-speed USB 2.0 interface, the Astra 4900 is the ideal scanner for ambitious users. Those who want to scan negatives and slides should select the Astra 4950 with its transparency unit included. Also, there is no transparency unit created for Astra 4900 for users to upgrade it to Astra 4950. It is a refurbished item.

Brand new, just arrived unit! I installed per the guide book, connected, etc, all it does is go BEEP then tell me the unit may not be connected, (Yet the light is on and it goes beep) and it can't find the twain. Tried to call you at the number listed, 214-739-1915 and that number is no longer working. So.... how do we get this to work?
Thanks a speedy reply would be appreciated.

I'm very happy with my Astra scanner; it does a beautiful job. I wish I could scan more than one document at a time, however

If you need a scanner that is effective for 8.5x11" format scanning, consider this Astra 4900. I've tested it and the software included and it seems to perform as specified. It is notably lighter and slimmer than the Astra 2000P which I bought in 2000. Certainly a good find.
