Terrible Product

Andrew H., Newegg
6 August 2008
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Slow, inaccurate, hard to use. I actually ordered 2 and 1 came DOA. Technical support is atrocious. No repair facilities in the states. No live help. They sent me an email with tech support. Absolutely unacceptable. BUYER BEWARE!

Microtek i900 Scnaner

Berkeley F. Fuller, Amazon
18 March 2007
  • Summary: The price-performance ratio of this scanner is extraordinary. The reflective (flatbed) performance is great, and the "bonus" of having various glass-less negative / film scanning inserts is great. Having Digital Ice available in scanner firmware is another plus.

Microtek is Mediocre

allen-c-in-biloxi, Amazon
18 March 2007
  • Summary: My Microtek i900 arrived on Feb 1. Six WEEKS later is was completely broken and I had to send it in to be replaced. Along the way, Microtek customer "service" was anything but helpful. In fact, they have ONE technical support person on staff--I know because I spoke to him several times.

Easy to Use, Dependable, Flexible & Affordable

Greg Robertson, Amazon
18 March 2007
  • Summary: I've had my ScanMaker i900 about a year now, and I couldn't be happier with it. It set up easily -- plug it in, load the software, restart, and go -- and has worked beyond expectations ever since.

Be careful, There is no repair service available.

sluggo, Amazon
18 March 2007
  • Summary: I purchased my Microtek i900 in August 2005. This week it decided not to turn on. I may have used to copy 250 pages or negatives in this period of time. I contacted the service department for Microtek who send you to an online repair service that will give you an email response in 48 hours.

I'm in Scanner Heaven

A. Larson, Amazon
18 March 2007
  • Summary: I wanted a scanner that would scan any size film negative and paper too, but did not want to to pay a million bucks for it-This is the one! I know an antique dealer who gets these glass negatives from sales and estates and I have been able to place 4 of them on the pull-out drawer and scan them with...

Spectacular Product!

Sandra Waldie, Amazon
18 March 2007
  • Summary: I've been waiting for this scanner for months and months but it has been worth the wait. I had it on pre-order and have finally got the opportunity to get it. I was eyeing the Microtek 6800 for quite some time but decided to hold out for a legal sized scanner that also had positive and negative...

Great scanner, but not the greatest...

J. Lockard, Amazon
18 March 2007
  • Summary: I loved this scanner, to a point. I shoot a mixture of 35mm and medium format film. This scanner looked like the ideal solution, it didn't cost nearly as much as a dedicated medium format film scanner, it allowed me to do glassless scanning of negatives and still allowed me to scan 35mm, other...

Love this scanner

Marie Guerierri, Amazon

Linux users beware!

Mike, Amazon
18 March 2007
  • Summary: Have converted a few folks to Linux and run into this scanner model. There is absolutely NO support from Microtek and evidently, never has been and never will be. No matter its physical condition, it's junk to Linux because of lack of a simple driver.
