The meaning of "basic" and other status classifiers are explained in the
Legend at the bottom of the page. There's a link near the top, BTW.

basic means it works at least in the most important modes but quality
is not perfect.

The page is not wrong but a bit out-of-date. Have a look at
for the latest information. FWIW, the support status of the scanner you

Hope this helps,
