The Agfa Duoscan T1200 is by far the largest and heaviest scanner manufactured by Agfa. It measures 15.5 inches x 6.3 inches and weighs 38 pounds. The scanning area measures 8.5 inches by 14 inches. Although the drivers of the device are supported by windows, there are no drivers available for Macintosh machines. For owners of Mac's however, alternative solutions to the driver problem are available from the http://static.agfa.com/digicam_scanner_drivers/index.html. Once the drivers have been installed, the Agfa Duoscan T1200 has the advantages of producing high quality scanned images. It also has high-speed performance and an integrated-transparency unit, which makes it fit for use in corporate departments where paper documents, photos and film negatives are scanned. The only disadvantage with the Agfa Duoscan T1200 is the fact that it requires the installation of SCSI card. In addition, the device is bulky, expensive and has no start button.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

The agfa Duoscan T1200 uses a transparency adapter that replaces the regular lid on the scanner thus allowing the device to use the internal-film adapter. The scanner also handled slides measuring 35 mm slides up to those as big as 8.5 x 10 inches. The scanner has a set up that also allows the user to scan paper documents and other regular prints on top. On the inside, the scanner can handle transparencies of different sizes without the user having to switch the lid. On purchasing a Duoscan T1200, one gets a Corel Photo-paint version 8, which is an image editor that helps one adjust the size of the scanned image. Addition resource is Fotolook scanning software manufactured by Agfa and a color management utility that aids one adjusting the theme colors of the scanned images. Support for this scanning device is available on agfa's official website. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Agfa DuoScan T1200 errors before installing any driver updates.
