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.
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...
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...
Summary: I was looking for a scanner to help me archive 20 years of slides, negatives, reviews, newsclippings and then archive these to CD. I received this scanner yesterday and it was up and running in less than 30 minutes.
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.
Summary: I have owned the i900 for about six weeks and I am very happy with the way it scans both negatives and regular photographs and other media. The quality of the scanner itself is excellent and coupled with PhotoShop Elements and ScanWizard Pro, it produces excellent digital files.
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.
Summary: Do not expect this to be an easy scanner to use as it's prosumer equipment, but for a serious photographer it is wonderful. It's easy to calibrate, easy to use, and gives very nice scans at 3200 dpi for my 35mm and 4x5 negatives and slides.
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.
Summary: This scanner works beautifully. The only gripe I have is that for irregularly sized transparencies, you have to use the glass to scan on, which means your transparency flies all over the place and does not scan properly.
