Identification and Background ¶ 

Released in the early 2000's, the Microtek Scanmaker was made to be everything that either a small business or independent designer needed in a digital imaging device.

The Microtek Scanmaker 5900 is easily identifiable as a scanner due to its easy open lid that reveals a glass surface for placing your pictures and documents on it.

It can further be identified by the fact that it says Microtek ScanMaker 5900 on the lid of the device. Refer to the manufacturers website for further details.
