It was cheap. It connects via USB. Scanner/printer takes the place of 2 desk items. It was to replace a much loved and still working flatbed-scanner which was so old it didn't connect via USB, sadly.
Controls are less than user-friendly, in fact they are so confusing I still can't figure out how to work it. I still can't figure out how to change the resolution of a scan, if it is even possible... I HATE THIS SCANNER.
buy something else.
