Summary: I acquired two of these scanners in order to replace several Kodak i40 scanners when I upgraded to Windows 7 64 bit. I had been very happy with the i40's and looked forward to this next generation.
Summary: I've been using this scanner for a year. It was purchased for the sole purpose of scanning photos. Like a previous reviewer we have encountered the "red, blue, green" vertical lines. We too were told from Kodak support it was dust.
Summary: I've been stalling getting a dedicated scanner for my business, but this unit is terrific. There is a lot of options to select from, but once I got it working, I've been tweaking it and finding new uses all the time.
Summary: I really disagree with the other review on this scanner. I was previously using a Cannon 9950 to scan in my photos and although the quality was fine, it was a very slow process. I bought this scanner as a close friend had scanned 15 THOUSAND photos with this device and with no issues.
Summary: hmmmm... Maybe a wall mount or something to get this off of my desk. Guess I could build a shelf someday. :-)
Pros: This is by far the best scanner on the market. The paper handling is unsurpassed by anything out there. It will scan business cards, heavy stocks... You would not believe what a great photo scanner this is! Simply put a stack of photos in the document feeder, open photoshop (not included) and you...
Cons: None I can think of... the metal body makes it very durable but a little heavy.
Summary: BUYER BEWARE (Be very aware of what you are getting yourself into) This machine is great if your favorite color happens to be red, blue or green. Just about every photo you run through this machine will create an un-useable image with one or more lines of red, blue or green . What causes this? DUST.
Excerpt: Je suis Impréssionnée par la robustesse du scanner et de la qualité d'image, en plus très simple à utiliser avec le raccourcie en façade. je le recommande à tous ceux qui ont pas mal de documments à scanner et veulent gagner du temps pour les retrouver et envoyer.
