The last Mac OS X version officially supported by that scanner is Mac OS 10.4 Tiger. You *MAY* be able to get it to work under Mac OS 10.5 Leopard or 10.6 Snow Leopard but otherwise there is NO way to get it to work with 10.7, 10.8 or 10.9 since these are Intel only platforms (the scanner software is PowerPC PPC.) Your only option is to run a Windows XP virtual machine inside your Mac and to it that way. I can assist you with that if you like.
BenQ does not make MAC OS drivers for this model scanner. Only Windows XP on down to 98 are provided.
Maybe you could run XP in BootCamp, Parallels, or VMWare Fusion on your Mac and use the scanner from the Windows OS...?

Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Compatibility information (Non-Compatible Scanners)
Unfortunately, the chosen scanner model is not supported with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). For models that are supported, please see the information below.
Compatible Scanner Models
Drivers to support Mac OS X 10.5 will be available for the below models. Visit the Canon download site for the most up to date versions of the product's drivers and software.
Scanner models released after 2007 will be compatible unless otherwise noted.
For scanners missing from the list above, if it was released prior to 2007, then it will not be supported in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
After visiting their officail website and calling the customer support it was made clear that UMAX 3450 is not compatible to MAC OSX. Therefore I would suggest not to try third party drivers as the company says its not compatible.
