I suggest you buy it.!!

AJTIEBoy, Amazon

  • 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.

Avoid at all costs

"georgebike", Amazon
10 May 2003
  • 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.

Do not buy this!

Amazon
12 December 2002
  • 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.

So very disappointed!

ST, Amazon
22 February 2002
  • 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. Because Microtek does not provide the consumer with a warranty, for obvious reasons, I was stuck with it. I do not recommend that any one purchases a Microtek product.

lamp problem

Lynn M St Sauver, Amazon
15 February 2002
  • Summary: After having the scanner for a little over a year the lamp burned out. I called Microtek and the only way to replace the bulb is to send the scanner to them and pay up to 200.00 to replace the lamp! To make things worse I had to hold for 20 minutes long distance.

Worthless Warranty

Amazon
21 November 2001
  • 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!!!

Weak scanning negatives and very noisy

Manny Hernandez "@askmanny", Amazon
16 September 2001
  • 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...

A strong start, but a very weak finish....

SLP Mom, Amazon
5 August 2001
  • 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.
