Summary: This quite possibly the coolest little piece of electronics Ive ever bought. I have hundreds of photos in boxes that I was trying to decide -do I keep them? do I throw them away? They are taking up way too much room...then I find this little gem. Its plug and play, takes approximately 30 seconds to scan a 4x6 photo. (that is the largest photo you can scan) After a little trial and error I have it down pat.
Summary: Like any other product, the reviews I read before purchasing were mixed - & there were enough bad reviews that I considered not buying. I'm SO glad I took a chance! I wanted to convert my 8,000+ photos to digital so was worried it wouldn't work well. It's fast, easy to use & the only photos that don't scan well are the old fashioned Polaroids - but they DO scan if you're careful. Other than that, I couldn't be happier.
Summary: great for what it's suppose to do-- read & follow instructions CAREFULLY!! taken a lot of time because of tons of photos to digital, but very reasonably priced & portable so can work on while doing other things too-- price tells you it's not indestructible and is 'peculiar' in its own way--
