Excerpt: I am extremely impressed with this scanner and the results. This scanner has choices of 300 dpi, 600 dpi and 1200 dpi We have many shoe boxes of old family photos dating from 1940's thru 1990 when we started using digital cameras.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Excellent Time Saver, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: First, let me say that in my opinion, there is no replacement for this item. I have done extensive research and it is simply not possible. If you have a substantial amount of photos to scan, this item is the only way to go. I have looked for a cheaper way to do this.
Summary: When you have to scan a LOT this is the scanner, it's pricy but I have thousands of family pictures and I tried a on-line scanning service which didn't workout at what I considered a decent price (I scan to tiff). The challenge was getting decent software on my mac. I finally ended up with Presto!
Excerpt: This scanner is expensive, but worth it if you are doing a high volume of photo scanning. Easy to setup and easy to use. If you are tasked with converting 30+ years of photos to digital, this is your scanner.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software
Fails to meet expectations - photo separation capabilities weak

Summary: While this scanner has exceptional per-scan speed, its real-world bulk scanning performance falls short. After scanning 4,000+ photos of different vintages (5-50 years old), I have come to the conclusion that under the best case scenarios at least 5% of the photos will not be captured.
Summary: Scanned over 20,000 photos with no photo defects (i.e., no streak/lines in photos). This saved me sooooo much time over using other batch scanners (i.e., Epson GS55) that had a 20-50% defect rate of dust induced lines. Incredible, INCREDIBLE, INCREDIBLE...need i say more.
