AstraSlim SE is a scanner machine which optically scans images, printed text, handwriting or any object and converts it to a digital image. These are known as variations of the desktop or flatbed scanner and hand-held scanners. Flatbed works when the document is placed on a glass window for scanning while hand-held scanners are moved by hand. Scanners have evolved from text scanning using 'wands' to 3D scanners used for big business designs, reverse engineering, test and measurements as well as orthodontics, gaming and other applications. Through the same concept, scanning is different from photocopying. Another distinguished feature is its photocopier function. In copying documents its speed amounts to 17 ppm. Photocopiers are devices that create hardcopy replicas of documents and other visual images quickly and inexpensively.

Most of these devices use a technology called xerography. They use a dry process through heat utilization. Modern age copiers also use other output technologies such as ink jets; however, xerography is the standard for office copying. Photocopying is widely used in business, education and even in the government. Reports indicate that the AstraSlim scanner has gained a lot of good reviews from customers and even PC reviews. Among the many reviews, users indicate that the scanning time may be slow but this limitation is still understandable because it is a USB powered solution. What is notable about this device is that it utilizes a CIS technology which is way better than scanners that use the usual CCD. Moreover, AstraSlim users mention that it’s built and dimensions (about thirty four millimeters thick) is also a great feature. Its compact, sleek scanner can be easily slipped under a desk and be easily attached onto a USB port whenever necessary. Umax also intended this device to be more flexible and cost efficient amongst users. This also supports heavy to medium usage for enlarging photos, scanning books along with the small footprint of the scanner. This is definitely an awesome product to look at for discrete placement as well as storage. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AstraSlim SE errors before installing any driver updates.
