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.
Summary: I purchased this scanner to complete a project of scanning a large collection of my grandmothers slides. I wanted something with good quality and the ability to scan multiple slides at a time.
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.
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: 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: 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: 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: 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.
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: 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.
