great price... and it was brand new,..... just from a few years ago
12 May 2013
Summary: I needed a scanner that could hook up to an older computer, it doesn't take long to be an "older computer," After seeing, old, used, "wonder if it's gonna work" scanners, I was particularly pleased to find, Unused, perfectly "NEW," except the price. For the same price, I could have gotten, a dirty, scratched, worn out and beat up, "maybe it will work scanner," at The Salvation Army... glad I didn't.
Summary: Would have preferred a dedicated 6" by 8" negative-film scanner in lid; more hardware density (although 1200 by 600->1200 dpi generates jpeg files of 23--33 megabytes). My dedicated polaroid film-and-slide scanners generate jpeg of 1.5 mb (2700 dpi quite adequate for film of iso/asa of 160 and higher) and 2.7 mb for my 4000 dpi. Can't expect miracles or santa clause. Happy with it.
