Summary: Scan quality is good but I estimate I can do about 40-50 slides an hour if I'm lucky.
Slide holder is delicate and will eventually break. It would be nice to buy a couple extra film/slide guides for loading while a set is scanning and to prepare for breakage. But you cant buy them.
Summary: This product is a good first scanner for a hobbyist who wants to begin scanning images into various projects. I can only give it three stars,however, because the attachment that permits scanning slides and negatives, which is of considerable importance to me, is poorly designed.
Summary: It is a cheap scanner and does the job. I did expect better image quality, but I seem to have gotten what I paid for.
Pros: Simple to set up and it does work with Vista. Probably as good as any scanner in this price range.
Cons: I expected better scans. I bought this scanner to replace a 5 year old HP scanner that will not work with Vista. I have several Canon cameras that are great and I expected an improvement on scan quality over my older scanner. The results are basically identical.
Summary: Arrived missing the ac adapter. I called New Egg support, who referred me to Cannon. Cannon support was great. They had the ac adapter to me in two days, no charge. I was extremely impressed with Cannon's support.
Pros: Great price. Does the job well. Works nice with my laser jet printer as a copier. I would suggest this product if you are looking for a scanner at a good price.
Cons: When scanning photos, even at the highest DPI, they seem blocky. I originally purchased this scanner for photos and expected more.
Summary: I am a little frustrated -- maybe it's just that can't get reliable, fast scans unless you spend a whole lot of money.
Pros: Easy setup, decent software, you can set up custom defaults for the buttons. Price is quite reasonable, even for such a light-duty device.
Cons: Seems a little fragile. Somebody else said they thought this model was fast, but I'm not sure what they compared it to. My older scanner, a mid-range model, which just died after four hard years was easily twice as fast scanning normal resolution documents.
Summary: Scan quality is good but I estimate I can do about 40-50 slides an hour if I'm lucky. Slide holder is delicate and will eventually break. It would be nice to buy a couple extra film/slide guides for loading while a set is scanning and to prepare for breakage. But you cant buy them.
Summary: This is a great scanner for the money, but you need to be realistic about what you're getting. If you're going to do some occasional scanning -- especially of slides or film -- you'll be OK. It's not robust enough to use professionally.
Summary: I bought this scanner for scanning several old negatives. Although it serves the purpose, the performance is poor. It is extremely slow. The parts to load the negatives is a cheapy plastic. It does not snatch properly when negatives are loaded.
