Excellent quality, easy to use. Great value!

  • Summary: Great value for the money... Much easier and faster than my Nikon coolscan, a 2054 x 1360 scan for cataloging my film and slides takes about 1 minute per frame. SilverFast AI studio software is easy to learn, and you quickly get consistent results. A max resolution multi-pass scan with dust and scratch removal takes several minutes, but that's a process you save for the couple of shots per roll that you really want to show off.

Not easy to use, too slow and unnessary for 35mm films

  • Summary: This scanner is actually very difficult to use - why? Because you need to find the correct drivers from the website - and there are three drivers you need to try - although my S/N starts at 5A15 but I actually need a 5A11 driver! The silverfast update also took me a while because I am the second owner of this scanner and I need to call the silverfast company to register the update! It took me 5 hours to just get this scanner working.

Good budget priced slide scanner ; not great for negs

crgg, Ebay

  • Summary: At the price I found this one ( 81.98 delivered in excellent condition ) I'm very happy with it . Much better for slides than negatives ( as expected ) . Scanning slides and negatives is far more problematical than print scanning . If you have a number of slides you need to do decent scans of fairly quickly , and can find one of these at a good price , I'd recommend it .

  • Summary: If you're a cheapskate who is willing to invest some of your time to scan your slides and negatives, this is the tool you need.
  • Pros: Compact. Relatively cheap for it's features. Fast scanning.
  • Cons: Tricky 35mm holder. Minimalist software. Requires 3rd party software for good results.

Good product

  • Summary: This scanner works like a charm. I have used it quite a bit, and the software package that is bundled with it is also very good. To upgrade the software is a little pricey, but the scanner is all it is cracked up to be.

Yes, it really was that simple.....

28 July 2008
  • Summary: After reading some of the reviews of this product I was a little concerned about what might await me when I tried to install it. Well, I needn't have been concerned. I followed the directions and it installed very easily. Once the installation was complete, the application launched and brought up a user friendly interface. I filled up the slide holder and slid it into the unit.
  • Pros: Accurate Thumbnails, Consistent, Fast, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution

  • Excerpt: Lightweight and compact construction. Plastic holders for negative strips a little disapointing and
  • Pros: Small and lightweight for when you return it.
  • Cons: Unfriendly software unacceptable results from good quality negatives. Not worth even emmerg short term.
