Summary: High marks for this scanner. The price was very competitive and delivery beat the expected time by 5 days. My only limitation is the scanner itself. It is a quick and easy way to scan snap shots that a digital version does not exist. The downside is the constant calibration and cleaning of scanner.
Summary: I love this... wasn't real sure I would, but I do... I've been working on a major photo project for scrapbooking - you know, those pictures you have in a box you haven't done anything with - there's a ton.... and I get them scanned more quickly this way, and they turn out great!!
Summary: This little thing works great. Easy to use and have scanned tons of photos so far. Would be nice to have a few extra clear sleeves with it as they get scratched easily and just one isn't enough for a lot of photos. I clean mine often as you get lines in scans often but goes away upon cleaning as per instructions. I say make this purchase and you will do well. Gave it a 4 simply because it should come with a few extra sleeves and better access to buying more.
Summary: I've probably scanned about 400 photos so far and it's done the job. They don't come up crystal clear, but what can you expect for $40. I follow the instructions and clean with the included attachment after about 100 photos. If I notice any lines prior, I'll clean it then. I also keep a can of air and a soft cloth to help keep lint away from the opening.
Summary: For scanning a lot if snapshots this scanner cannot be beat. So much faster than my flat bed scanner. Only problem I had was the card that came with it Dodd not work. Bought a new sd card and it worked great. I have scanned over 500 snapshots already and re organized into smaller boxes for easy storage.
