RE: filmscanners: Fast, decent, low res scans
There is no need to buy an expensive UltraSCSI PCI card for use with a
scanner. Try the Adaptec 2906 for under $50. Works great for me with my
Minolta Scan Dual on both my old PowerBase 180 and on my newer G4/500.
Scanners use the original narrow and slow SCSI protocols. The only reason
to buy the fast, wide, LVD SCSI cards is if you want to set up a RAID array
of SCSI disks - but then you don't want to put the scanner or any other
narrow, slow devices on the same card.
