Never finished this deal, so I don't know for sure.

Summary: When it comes down to it, this product & I never did cross paths. I ordered the wrong item & it was all squashed shortly thereafter. It looked like a decent product & if I had actually purchased it, I believe I would have been happy with it. Sorry that I could not help more.
Summary: Wanted this to scan about 500 slides for my aunt - and any others our family has hidden away. It does a great job if not somewhat slowly. You can load up to 4 slides per scan session (each slide is scanned individually within the session). At 300 dpi the four slides took about 8 minutes. I suspect it will be about twice as fast at 150 dpi, but since I intend to print some of them I need a higher resolution.
Summary: I use me CanoScan to put my slides on my computer and on CDs. My slides are 39 years old and I didn't think the color would be very good but you can't tell the difference from the picture that I take with my digital camera. I can take out red eye and enhance them. It was going to cost me an arm and leg to get then done at a store and this was sooo much cheaper. It is very easy to use.
Summary: Like the ease of installation on computer and ability to use in under 10 minutes after unpacking. Can't figure out how to darken light images which is maddening. I'm sure there is a way but haven't found it yet. Bought the scanner due to the price point and quality manufacturer.
Summary: So far I love this machine. It scans Pics clearly and the image stays clear even when you zoom in (A problem I've had with other photo scaners). Scanning negatives isn't quite as clear but I think thats more user error than the machine it's self. over all a great little scanner and it's compact too.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: Scanning old color negatives from when the kids were little - so much better resolution than scanning the prints, which I have done in the past. Takes about a half hour to scan a roll of 24 shots. easy to use and am so happy with it!
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Resolution
