Summary: I read all the reviews that I could find on this item. It seemed to be a love it or hate it proposition. The price was right so I took the plunge. I have slides that date back to 1963 and are from all over the world. It took me about 5 days off and on to get them all into the computer.
Summary: The good news is that the product is significantly faster than a flat bed scanner. The bad news is that the picture quality is poor to mediocre. Images lack sharpness and colors are faded or wrong. Dark details are lost.
Summary: This product does not scan in the original colors and slides are not clear and in focus I used this scanner for 200 slides and the next time I went to scan , it would not work. I have tried EVERYTHING but it seems the scanner Unit is not operating. What a waste of money.
Summary: I purchased the ION PICS2PC scanner to primarily scan slides. It is a dismal failure for several reasons. The holders for slides and negatives are hard to open and clumsy. It scans slides, but they are overly bright with a bright spot in the center of the slide.
Summary: I tried other slide scanners before purchasing the Ion PICS2PC and returned them all for one reason or another, especially poor software performance. This is the best scanner I have tried and I am keeping it. I already converted 50 slides the first day and the results are satisfactory.
