Linux users beware!

Mike "Relative", Amazon
9 December 2012
  • 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.

decent scanner - terrible service

jmof, Amazon

  • Summary: Mikrotek is not helpful with problems. The scanning is good but it keeps loosing the connection to the scanner. No help to be had from Mikrotek. I had to repeatedly reconnect the cables and when I am in luck it decides it is connected. But a lot of the time it decides it is not connected.

The scanner was great and well worth the money.

  • Summary: The i900 scanner is a great piece of equipment. I primarily need to scan medium format film and was very please with the results. The film scans were clear and sharp. The details and shadows were captured which is what i expected from a good film scanner.

Just buy one. You won't be disappointed!

  • Summary: I bought this scanner because I want to be able to digitize my older 35mm slides and negatives and my more recent large format work. I looked at the specs for this scanner and compared it to others of this type and found the performance to be incredible.

Mac Users Beware!

Tom Benthin, Amazon
10 January 2012
  • Summary: If you're a Mac user, don't buy this scanner if you want to be able to upgrade, or if you're already running Lion. Microtek has discontinued drivers and won't support Lion, so it won't work. In fact, if I were you I'd avoid them entirely.

Good scanner but not for beginners

Tom O, Amazon
9 August 2008
  • Summary: The software that comes with this scanner is the weak point, it crashed numerous times. Don't use the CD, download everything from the website. It comes with a pretty complete manual, but the way this software is designed it needs it. They could spend more time explaining what they mean by a batch.

Problems With Set Up But Worth the Trouble!

Taw Jackson, Amazon
11 July 2008
  • Summary: I bought the I900 in order to be able to scan negatives, slides and transparencies- as well as reflective items on the scanning bed's larger size scan area. The item arrived in a box the size of a coffin but fortunately most of that was due to packaging.

Delighted

S. Harding, Amazon
9 June 2008
  • Summary: I selected this product because I needed a new scanner and wanted one that could scan my large collection of 35mm slides as well as prints and documents. I have scanned a couple of dozen slides so far and am very pleased with the results. The color is true and the resolution allows for good detail.

Best scanner I've had!

Gary F. "Garfy2008", Amazon
9 June 2008
  • Summary: I bought the i900 because I wanted a scanner that would do slides & negatives besides normal reflective scans. I have an old Scanmaker E6 that is still working great, so I decided on the i900 because it was cheaper than most film scanners and could do more than just film.
