Summary: I have about 250 or so slides from around the 1930s, very well maintained by my family. I finally got around to breaking them open to archive them digitally. I needed a slide-capable, fast, high resolution scanner, and that's exactly what I got.
Summary: After much research and recommendation, we purchased the Epson scanner. The first one arrived and wouldn't work correctly. After calling the manufacturer, we discovered it was defective. I immediately contacted Amazon and my new scanner arrived in days without costing me anything extra.
Summary: Using a digital camera and a slide projector would be far easier and quicker for digitizing your old slides!!! Those of us of a certain age would like to digitize our 35mm slides from the "good old days".
Pretty decent, good for SLIDES, not good for medium fmt or 4x5s

Summary: Does a great job on slides, but be advised, the backlight is a thin strip down the middle of the scanning area, and the preview will only show you this area for selecting the full scan-- and it's not quite wide enough for medium format.
Easy to install, learn and use. Sleak and compactly designed.

Summary: My HP scanner recently failed after years of constant use and I had to find a quick replacement. I purchased the Epson V200 Perfection scanner after doing a little research on the internet. The scanner and it's software was easily installed, I didn't read anything on how to use it..
Summary: Thanks to Amazon's shipping efficiency, I got my scanner faster than expected. Only to find out sooner that the glass was dirty inside (spots of iridescence and cloudiness). Not something you would want from a scanner supposed to give you a sharp rendition of the stuff you put on.
