Summary: I like the way it recognizes the type of document or photo being scanned and the scanned photos are very good except for mat finish photos, these come out a grainy. The only other complaint is this scanner is slow for scanning a large number of photos.
Summary: Positives are price and portability. Negatives are slow speed, the need to scan at much higher resolutions than with my old scanner and the power & USB ports being on the side rather than the rear of the scanner.
Summary: I installed this device and use it successfully, and have touched advanced features. I had to get a software upgrade to get it working in Win 8, and it seems to get along OK with Win 8.1. Installation was not trivial, but it worked. Use of features beyond the basic features, again, is sometimes confusing, but it does what it's supposed to do.
Summary: As Advertised. Works well. I'm scanning in all my family pictures, so I;m using it a lot. For this task I prefer the Professional Mode. It is faster. I've used some of the functions to restore some old pictures. I think those could be better, but they have improved the color and contrast of some pictures. The hardware part of the scanner seems to work fine. The software could be a little better.
