Summary: I purchased this scanner with a mission in mind. I've got over 10,000 of my fathers and my own slides - a combination of 35mm and 6x6. There are also 5 binders of negatives also in both formats. So far I've scanned over 500 of the 35mm slides and am very pleased with the image quality. I've tried some of the 6x6 negatives, and am also pleased with the images that I've received.
Summary: This is a review of my experience ordering from Radio Shack -- not of the scanner (the scanner is a good product) Placed an order for an in-stock item. Received order acknowledgement, then confirmation and then cancellation (with no explanation). Contacted cust service who assured me that the item was in stock and the problem was with the warehouse, and promised to fix. Called me 4 days later that the problem was "fixed".
Summary: Found that the RS price was best buy online at the time. Original order cancelled, called customer service, they confirmed order and price were valid and in stock. They reordered another one for me. The order was cancelled again. I called to get a supervisor to find out why. Called them again when they didn't call back. They said they had an inquiry in with the warehouse and said they would call back. They never called back.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: I have thousands of pictures & tens of thousands of slides requiring scanning. By purchasing extra slide carriers, I have been able to make my task much easier. The ease of learning, operation and quality of my finish products is amazing.
Summary: I purchased the V700 a few years back and used it for years without a problem. Then I upgraded my OS and the Silverfast software it came with - much better then the Epson Scan - is incompatible with the newer MacOS's.
Summary: Excellent product for revues on slides. I have approx 3600 slides to go through, and, it becomes extraordinarily easy to work with. I chose to purchas three more trays in that I can work easily with batches of forty-eight slides at each sit-down.
Summary: I have around 7,000 slides to scan. I am a part-time professional, and high quality scans are important to me. The V700 did a fine job scanning the one print I tried, and I imagine it does a great job with documents. However, it did not measure up when it comes to slides. I have tried everything and learned a lot, but the scans are just not crisp. It's as if they are all a little out of focus (which, trust me, they are not). I am returning the scanner today.
Summary: I really like this scanner. I ordered it to scan all my family pictures on slides. I tried 3 other scanners before I found this one. (This one was a lot more expensive) I will warn you that it is slow. It takes about 30 minutes to scan 12 slides, but once you load them up, you can walk away and do something else while it does the scanning for you. It is better quality than most. The only other drawback is that it comes with only one slide tray.
