Not So Good
1 week ago
Summary: The first one I received was defective and had to return. Additionally, the USB cord was also defective. The replacement scanned 35 mm film ok but could not scan my 35mm slides as the holder was too large. The unit is not equipped to scan 10mm film. The scanner holders are very fragile & probably would break soon.The instruction manual is lacking in fully explaing the procedures and some trial is necessary.
Summary: Like the scanner - very easy to get up and running. But I am totally not impressed with the film holders. I don't think plastic can flow any thinner..! For a repetitive use item "Come On" put some plastic in it... ! The film frame is Very flimsy! I expect it to be broke within a month.
Summary: Just a short review - everything was in box but with very minimal packing. It was more what I would expect from on in store pickup not the type of packing I expected from fedex on my doorstep in the rainy state of Oregon. Second point the "Free Photo Shop Elements" is about 3 versions behind. They sent version 9 when the present version I think is up to version 12 !
Summary: All you get with your purchase is a quick start sheet that makes it sound like you just press a button and everything is perfect. Not so! Even the supplied CD instructions just scratch the surface, at best. You must devote a lot of time to figure out how this thing works because you're on your own. I would not have bought it if I had known this.
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.
