Thank you for the information.

I would suggest a urgent notice on this point in the scanner lists :-)


I intended to buy a 1240U and I did accept a new 1250U from the shop as
they do not have 1240U scanners anymore and as I had read on the
scanner-usb page: "I strongly recommend that you select an Epson
scanner. All the Epson scanners conform to the Epson scanner language"

I assume that others may make the same mistake.
