If I was in the market for something like this I definitely wouldn't buy a more recent Cardscan scanner, since they never did fairly basic support stuff that would have meant it was still usable. How long before the current version is abandoned?
Never mind, I'm not going to lose money on it since I'll be starting at the price I paid for it.
