Very disappointed.Too slow to convert negatives..didn't even get to my pics
21 April 2012
Summary: Thought this would be the answer to help me convert all my negatives and old photos onto a jumpdrive. This is NOT the answer! The software is poor and continually freezes up. I was using it on my older computer designated only for pictures and runs XP. Tried it on my laptop with Vista and then my new computer with 7 and still had the same poor results...it is slow between scans and continually FREEZES UP! I do not have the time to sit around waiting.
Summary: This product does not scan in the original colors and slides are not clear and in focus Ion Audio USB Picture, Slide, and Film Scanner (PICS2PC) 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. I would invest in a different scanner . I wish I knew this before I bought this item.
Summary: I orderd this product with much apprehention... the first afternoon that I had this scanner I processed over 400 slides that were 40 - 50 years old and they turned out great. What a relief to know that I can now ensure my many memories that were deteriorating as slides. Thank You I would certainly tell others to buy it.
Summary: It is cumbersome and totally manual...it would take "forever" to scan slides or negatives. I would not recommend this product. Additionally, there is a 20% re-stocking fee to return the item which must be returned in the original packaging, at your expense (less the 20% restocking fee) and in a traceable manner. So my almost $80 purchase ended up being closer to $100 when you consider the return postage and punishment for returning the item...and I ended up with NOTHING!
