  • Summary: I did my research and found that this scanner more often than not has been recommended for use by other photographers. I down loaded the driver from the Microtek web site and had the Scanner up and running in about 30 minutes.

Avoid, absolute junk!

  • Summary: After shelling out a lot of money when this scanner was new, I am very dissapointed. The color accuracy for slides is horrible. It died after about 3 months of use, but Microtek did fix it free of charge. Now a year later it is locked up and will not scan.

Jeremy Banfield, Amazon

  • Summary: It's not very often that I buy something that works as is advertised. So I was pleasantly surpised when I was able to open up the box, put in the cd, reboot my computer and plug in the USB plug in the front of the computer.
