Pros: But when it is working, it's AMAZING. Photo scans are very accurate and fast.
Cons: You have to clean the machine entirely too frequently. Dust shows up as green streaks through photos and requires a sticky cleaning sheet and dust free, lint free cloth cleaning wipes...then the wheels become disgusting and need to be cleaned with yet another special cleaning wipe. All of the cleaning supplies are expensive. Sometimes it scans eyes in photos as greyed out orbs..and have to get another refurb.
Decent hardware, but old software. Very hard to justify the price.

Summary: Drivers and software have not been updated for Windows 7. Software is almost unusable on x64 Windows.
Pros: Solid hardware, easy to use, quite a few features and highly configurable software, feeds documents well.
Cons: The first unit I received had a bad sensor--color documents had vertical yellow lines. NewEgg replaced it and although the new one was better, it is definitely not usable for scanning photos--there are always vertical white lines on the image.
Summary: Habe den Scanner zurück gegeben. Zum Text/OCR Scan ist er zu gebrauchen. Sobald jedoch Bilder eingebettet sind (wie bspw. in Zeitschriften) zieren häßliche Streifen das Scan-Ergebnis. Säubern ist schwierig, da man an das hintere Sensorglas nicht gut herankommt. Das von Kodak empfohlene Reinigungsset ist kaum zu erhalten (habe ich nur im englischsprachigen Internet gefunden).
