Summary: The main thing I wanted to do with this scanner was to scan and then email my pictures to friends and family. This scanner is USB and under $... many stores!!! It's quiet and the picture quality is great for it. I have no complaints yet on it, works like a charm.
Summary: Microtek should be embarrassed to have ever brought such a poorly designed, poorly built scanner to the market. The bulb is unbelievably fragile and can only be replaced by Microtek, shipping prepaid, and they want nearly as much for the "free" replacement as the scanner cost.
Summary: I bought this scanner about a year ago and have been using with the family IMAC. The scans come out poorly. The software that came with the scanner conflicts with my zip drive. It is so "unfriendly" that no one in the family uses it.
Summary: I purchased my Microtek product less than a year ago. Actually, it was 7 months ago. The product stopped scanning some 2 months ago.

Summary: Within the 1 year warranty period the scanner lamp burned out. Not a surprise since it stays on all the time. Microtek took 2 weeks to respond to e-mail and 2 more to process info. They had the nerve to then say the warranty had lapsed!!!
Summary: One of the reasons why I got this scanner (in fact one of the cheapest ones I could find) was the fact that it had a built in feature to allow the scanning of negatives. However doing this has proved to be filled with all sorts of "traps" requiring the EXTENSIVE use of image-editing software (such...
Summary: When we first got this scanner it was great- pictures and text scanned well & the software was easy to use. BUT, about 6 months into relatively light use, the scanner started making grinding noises & stopped working altogether.
Summary: I purchased this scanner in Feburary of this year. I was pleased that the installation was easy and for what I used it for the quality of the scans were Ok. Unfortunately, the scanner totally quit functioning after 12 scans!
