Decent. Not new as stated in the description. Lines on photos
27 July 2013
Summary: Not too bad but have to rerun some photos through multiple times as lines show on pictures even after cleaning and calibrating. Very noticeable on dark photos and night photos. Bright daytime photos look good. Amazon listing stated item was brand new but wasn't.
Summary: I bought the Kodak P570 from a "deal of the day" site. Sat in the box for a few months. Pulled it out yesterday, popped in a 16 GB SD HC card, and started scanning. Did 572 pictures, some 30-years old, almost non-stop. After about every 100 pics, I would pause, pull the SD card out, pop it into the computer, copy the pics to the hard drive, and review the pics. Very satisfied! These pics look A LOT better on a computer than they did sitting in a paper photo album.
Summary: I actually had a bit of trouble with this product, however I was able to complete my job with it. I had thousands of negatives to scan and got through them okay I guess. The picture quality is not great but it will be fine as I just wanted to save them to my computer and not print them out. I will offer this product to my friends and family to use also, as I have no further use for it.
Summary: I just purchased this product, the Kodak P570, i havent fully used it but needed tech support on some of it's features so i called the manufacturer but they are no longer in business, therefore will not support the warranty that came with the product. They along with Kodak are bankrupt. I plan on returning the scanner ASAP. Buy at own risk.
Summary: Generally pleased with unit, speed, and quality. As with all scanning, cleanliness of the source material is important. Until I traced the cause, I was extremely frustrated with the scanning of some film negatives. It seems this scanner prefers Kodak film and will NOT scan film from Seattle FilmWorks. I haven't tried Fuji Film yet. But scanning SFW negatives gives no error indication. Everything looks good, lights blinking as they should, but no output!
Summary: Well, I've lost the calibration card and cleaners for this product...which I need because I have lines through the last 50 photos I scanned. The scanner needs to be cleaned and I can't do it. Would I recommend you buy this product? NO!
Summary: Works OK but half of the pictures we scanned have lines in them. Cleaned it according to directions and that didn't help. For pictures I really want clean, using a big scanner. Emailed Kodak for support and never heard from them. Poor customer service.
Summary: Bought this scanner and scanned in around 700 plus 4 X 6 pictures and then the mysterious line started to appear on the scanned pictures. I was periodically cleaning the scanner during that period, about every second day of use, but around the 700 mark the lines would not be cleared by cleaning.
