Hello all,

I just picked up a HSD Microcomputer Scan-X Professional SX100 Scanner. I know HSD made the Scan X Color for NeXT computers, and based off the branding and design language of the Scan-X Professional, I think this will work with the NeXT as well.

I'm looking for a few things:

EDIT: Answered all three of these going through the NeXTWORLD magazines. Feb/Mar 1993 has a great ad for HSD products on page 2.


1. Confirmation that the HSD Scan-X Professional works with NeXT computers. Yes.. 8-bit greyscale, 2400dpi. (MSRP $1495 in 1993)
2.Information on compatible scanning software. PowerScan (MSRP $99 in 1993)
3. A description of what the ADF port is for. Auto Document Feeder (MSRP $449 in 1993)

Attached a couple images. Thanks.

Very nice - cool that you have a scanner working with a NeXT. Is the software in the nextcomputers.org (or some other) archive?
