Very, very good.

Summary: The scanner is the best I have had to date. I have been scanning very old photos, for family records. Some of these photos are 150 or more years old. I am scanning in the 720 dpi plus range all the time. I can get perfect images.
Summary: I had to return the first one I bought. The exchange one has worked. I have not been able to reliably install all the software (Win 7). It should have been better. I am not an amateur and it took me several tries. I managed to get the negative feature to work once and was happy with it but I have tried several times since and it will not work.
Summary: This relatively low-priced scanner is a nice device to scan old negatives and photos of all sizes into my picture library. The scanner is easy to set up and easy to operate. The quality of the scans is excellent. I have 35mm films and old color and black and white photos that are more than 40 years old. The scanned results are clear and sharp. I do not even have to use the dust or scratch removal options.
Summary: This scanner works great in scanning all my photos as well as negatives. It does a good job on all the items Ive tried to scan. The software does a good job on working with selecting and tweaking the photos as well as the negatives. This is a complete package for me to do all my old photos or whatever else I need. I'm glad I bought it.
Summary: I like the scanner (my second one), but there has been no software update for the MacOS I'm using. It works with Image Capture, but it's clunky and the results aren't always satisfying. I hope this problem can be fixed sometime soon.
