Okay, so it looks like I can get a Umax 1200s locally for CDN$553 (US$404)
with a $69 rebate making it CDN$484 (US$353)! On the other hand, a local
shop also has Microtek E6 scanners for CDN$450 (US$329).

Is the support for the E6 good enough that I should save myself $30? Is
the E6 as good as the 1200s?
