Summary: This product does what it was intended to do. I have a multitude of 35mm slides ranging from 30 to 50 years old that I just retrieved from the attic. I am well into the collection now as I digitize and preserve these irreplaceable images.
Summary: I purchased this slide scanner because of the good reviews and high praise for the SilverFast software that comes with it and I was not disappointed. This small machine provides great reproduction from slides and the editing ability of SilverFast has helped me clean up damage on 40 year old slides.
Summary: I bought the Plustek scanner as a tool to finish up transferring 35MM slides to a digital form. I have been very satisfied with the quality of the digital picture output done as a high quality TIF.
Summary: I am scanning slides at 1200 to 1800 dpi, using mostly the default color optimization and corrections on each slide. Some post-editing is required to remove blemishes from dirty slides, but I expected that. The SilverFast software was a little confusing to set up at first, but it works great!
Summary: This scanner is easy to use and produces high quality images. The film and slide holders cut down the time needed to scan a large volume of negatives and slides. Installation on my PC (XP) at home took me a good two hours. I use Windows 2000 at work but XP at home.
Summary: Beautiful pictures & colours, even with QuickScan. SilverFast definitely needs computer savvy, so if you are computer shy stick to QuickScan - like its name, it is quick (and trivial). SilverFast on the other hand has great Global Colour Correction and Scratch Removal features.
Summary: I needed a simple scanner for my old 35mm slides that was easy to use at a reasonable cost. I finally found this one and am very happy with it. So far, I have scanned about 600 slides and still going. Mostly, the program is automatic but allows me to do easy color and contrast adjustments.
Summary: I am very pleased with this product. It has done what was promised. When I tried to load the programs to my computer it would not read the disk. I went to the company web site and to support. This was on a Friday Evening.
Summary: Before buying the Plustek Opticfilm 7200, I did tons of research on both flatbed and dedicated slide scanners. After reading hundreds of reviews all I can say is that I was confused whether to go with a Canon flatbed or take a chance on the Plustek. Well, I took the plunge and bought the 7200.
Summary: Like many stated in reviews of this item, I purchased it to process thousands of slides I shot from 1965 on. Have tried several scanners in the past; they work but are slow and difficult to use for slides. The plustek scans one slide at a time, rather quickly, too.
