Every thing is faster with USB3.
UBS3 is the fastest growing interface for microfilm scanners.
USB3 is a reliable, stable interface that is easy to use and more than 10 times faster than USB2. Today only two microfilm scanners do not use the new USB3 interface. The Konica Minolta SL 1000 (no longer sold in the US) continues to use USB2 and the ST Viewscan2 continues to use a hybrid combination of USB2 and firewire as their interface.
Does the slower USB2 interface affect scanner performance?
Yes, the entire scanner runs slower. The most noticeable effect on performance will be at start up, software stability and when using functions and features that involve the camera.
USB3 brings Super Speed performance to ScanPro scanners.
USB 3.0 is the latest specification of the proven and reliable USB standard that has been an industry staple for many years. USB3 was first introduced in 2008 and provides for data transfer speeds up to 5.0 gigabits per second (Gbits/s). That is about ten times faster than USB 2.0. That increase in speed performance available with USB3 means that the ScanPro microfilm scanner and the computer can work together much more quickly and effectively. The most noticeable effect on performance will be when using functions and features that involve the camera, for example focus, optical zoom, brightness, OCR and automatic scanning. You will also see a speed performance increase in the optional software packages,
AUTO-Scan® Pro and the PowerScan Productivity Suite. Everything operates faster with super speed USB3.
