Good budget priced slide scanner ; not great for negs
23 September 2010
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: I am happy with my purchase of the Plustek 7200 scanner. The results are amazing! Very Happy!! What I did not like ... - Instructions. The quality of instructions (starting from installation of app) could have been far better. More detailed and systematic.
Summary: I love this little scanner!! The software needed to be updated but that was it. I hooked it up, ran the drivers, and started scanning each of my negatives, (only allows one at a time). Very easy to install and the software that came with mine (LaserSoft Imaging) is so cool.
Summary: So far so good .... I received the Optic Film 7200 with the Silverfast SE disk version. B4 you start, you can get a FREE Silverfast Upgrade to 6.6.0r2 and there is another one due out shortly.
Summary: We bought this scanner for my parents to scan the TONS of slides they have kept in the basement. I personally scanned around 300 slides. The quality of the scans is very good - but be prepared to wait. Scanning slides is time consuming.
Summary: Easy to use and doing a great job of converting my slide collection to digital. From there I've already completed 2 CD's. This is also a good opportunity for me to review all my slides that I haven't looked at for years. It's much easier to play a CD than haul out the projector, screen etc.
Good optical quality, poor documentation and software

Summary: The product delivers excellent quality for the price. Slide scanning is easy and the machine is beautifully calibrated. However, don't even think of installing the accompanying software if you're using Windows Vista. Instead, first download and install the latest scanner driver from Plustek.
Summary: I was hesitant to purchase this product but after reading the reviews I took the plunge, and today I'm glad I did. So far I have scanned over 200 slides and the images at 3600 DPI are truly stunning.
