Summary: I digitized around 4000 slides last year using this device. Originals were made without automatic exposure and focus and most of the images were in need of some editing. The Silverfast software is powerful and largely intuitive (I haven't used PhotoShop much so can't say how much better it is).
Convenient, high quality, cheap, reliable, very much

Summary: Good combination of price and quality. Izdeliya.Velikolepnoe good quality scan. Good software product support. Like the case included. Function like removing dust and scratches, infrared. As a disadvantage, the need for cutting the film.
I have had a good experience with this scanner. You get what you pay for!

Summary: Actually it is an 8200i scanner! I bought this scanner so that I could digitize all of my 35mm slides and negatives that I had prior to digital cameras, so that I can pass these along to my children. It works very well, although the documentation could have done a little bit more hand-holding.
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.
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!
Good budget priced slide scanner ; not great for negs

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 .
Summary: Bought this scanner to convert 400 color slides taken by my grandfather during his time abroad during the Korean War era. The slide holder allows you to easily move through scanning 4 slides in a row. The computer software included with the scanner is very user friendly.
