A Lemon of A Scanner
8 February 2008
Summary: A fast, powerful OCR scanner is what I had hoped for, but instead got a slow scanner with presumed OCR technology that doesn't work well. Furthermore, the scanner software that comes with the scanner is terrible, and has a poor working interface. I do not recommend this scanner. Look elsewhere. Update: Finally had to sell the scanner because proper drivers were not made for it. While the company does have them for Mac OS 10.5, they didn't work properly.
Summary: If you are planning to scan film strips (it does not even work with mounted slides) this is certanly NOT the scanner. It crops the image and you will expend the rest of your life moving the back light one frame per scan.
