Point well taken and I also wish it would be more informative but I'm
afraid there not much that can be done about it.  Even the firmware's
scanner part only says CX4800 which is not very helpful if you bought
it someplace where it is marketed as a Stylus CX4700, Stylus DX4800 or
even PX-A650 ...

Hey, at least the vendor specific interface mentions:

   iInterface              5 EPSON Scanner


Hope this helps,
