A tad worse then average.

  • Summary: This is a fair product but one I would avoid for pros or advanced amateurs looking to scan their slides and negatives. Its okay for hobbyists however. Its inexpensive and easy too use. The viewing screen is small compared too several other models but its also less expensive. This is fine for a few slides or negatives but if you want high quality scans buy a better unit.

Does the basic job

Anna J. Cuomo-Bertsch, Amazon
18 May 2013
  • Summary: If you need to scan a lot of slides fast, this will do the job. There are no settings for file manupulation-i.e. lighten up a dark picture or crop anything, but it gets the job done. I like that it goes straight to an SD card so it doesn't tie up your computer. I would not pay full price for a brand new one, but the price was right this 'open box' one.

Scanning Slides

Paul DiMaio, Amazon
10 February 2013
  • Summary: I had 1500 of my dad's slides to scan because they were starting to get mold and it makes sense to save them digitally. It is a little tricky to figure out how to use this scanner but once you memorize all of the icons it goes pretty fast. My first ION quit working so I sent it back and they sent me a rebuilt one. Well this one did not work at all so I sent this one back also. Finally they sent me another one and this worked fine for quite a while.

Workable slide transfer

OkJim, Staples
24 February 2012
  • Excerpt: The instructions for use are limited, but the system operations are guessable. There seems to be no flexibility once the transfer process is initiated. For me transfer seemed to be very slow, but I'm not sure whether the system or the flash storage is the problem.
  • Pros: Good Resolution
  • Cons: Not Versatile, Slow

Not impressed, but it works

Cindy H, Staples
24 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Easy to load slides and take "snapshot" but when it comes to transferring them to computer, it takes a long time, often locking up computer which has adequate room/speed. Non-critical parts of scanner have already broken only after scanning 50 slides. Colors are not impressive.
  • Pros: Accurate Thumbnails, Easy to InstallUse
  • Cons: Locks up, Slow

good results from a clunky device

Alfonse, Staples
5 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Good scanning results. Slides go in a flat slide carrier that does not smoothly fit into the device. Seems a little clunky, prone to minor jams.
  • Pros: Accurate Thumbnails, Consistent, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Difficult to Load, Jam of slide carrier, Little door fell off
