I bought a "Highscreen PerfectScan" last weekend, and it is indeed recognized
as a Microtek E6 and seems to work fine with SANE-0.68. (With an
Adaptec-2940 that is, i haven't bothered to try the card that came with it).
I am a bit uneasy about termination, as the minimal documentation in the box
simply mentioned that it "might be necessary if there are other devices on
the bus". This beast has two female connectors besides the centronics-type
scsi port, one of which *might* be scsi (but i have never seen terminators
with a "normal" 25-pin sub-D pinout). I guess the other is used to connect
the additional hardware for scanning 35mm slides or some such - can somebody
confirm this (in private email, i guess it's a bit off-topic for this
