There have been no reports from users for the 1212U in recent month, 
so I assume it works ok ;-) 

The maximum resolution for this scanner supported by the snapscan 
backend is 600 DPI, which is the optical resolution. As far as I know 
the stepper driver of the scanner supports 1200 DPI, so theoretically 
it's possible to have a resolution of 600x1200 DPI, but currently 
that's not implemented.

There also is one open bug report for the 1212U: 
However, I never got any details so this bug is not likely to be fixed 
(if it really is a bug).

Once these two issues are solved I may be tempted to even change the 
status to "complete" ;-)
