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. I have done hundreds and hundreds of slides by both the semi-auto and manual processes; it just depended how degraded the image was.
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.
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.
Summary: The Plustek 7200 is an excellent slide scanner for the money. I have tried many methods to scan my 5000 slides -- going back to the 50s thru late 90s. This is the scanner that I will use for the massive conversion. The good news is that with a little effort, you can get the included SilverFast software to clean up dirty (dusty) slides. The bad news is: it takes some time/effort for each slide -- depending on their condition.
Summary: This is a very easy to install, easy to use device that worked well for me. The quality of the scans is very good and most often I do not even use the highest quality setting. I transferred all of my family slides from the 60's and placed them on DVD. The software provided is decent. I prefer the "quick scan" feature when doing bulk transfer. You will have to make occassional adjustments to the autocrop if your slides have varying light conditions, but no sweat.
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! I am scanning slides at the rate of 2.5 minutes per slide, including minor touchup on a fraction of the resulting photos. I am very pleased with this little scanner.
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. I found both the scanner and the software to be easy to use. Slides load securely into the 4-slide carriage.
Summary: This is my first slide and color negative scanner. Though i have used scanners for documents and pictures since the days of the 80286, I had no idea what to buy to catalog over 50 years of family slides and negatives. For the price, this scanner did exactly what I wanted, was easy to learn to use. You can scan four slides, or one strip of negatives. You must advance the slides manually for each scan, but the included film holders let you preload.
