Summary: Not enough stars available for this product. It is so easy to use, and so quick, 2 seconds per slide, just click OK twice and your slides are saved to SD card ( supplied ). Save to PC and WOW that's all there is to it. "simples". You don't even need a PC, just plug in to mains and carry on.
Summary: I have had several slide scanners in the past and they were clunky to use and the software produced poor images. This is great. I can easily go through a 180 slide carousel in 30-60 min. Cleaning the slides takes more time than scanning them!
Summary: I have a ton of old negatives that I've accumulated for many years. With this scanner, I've been able to digitize many pictures that have almost been forgotten and lost forever. It's a great tool!, Together with my editing software, I've been able to bring old memories back to life.
Summary: The slides that were digitally saved by using the ION 2 SD came out great when we had them printed on photo paper. Many an old memory can now be shared immediately without having to get out the slide projector.
Summary: And was I surprised and very happy. I passed up on over $100 slide scanners for this $16 one, and I worried that I might experience dust collecting on the slides within the main base (as other reviewers warned about).
Summary: This slide scanner served my purposes very well. It is very portable, easy to use. I went through 350 slides in no time. I liked putting them on a SD chip and then transfering them to my computer because it could then decide what I wanted to keep and how I wanted to organize them.
