After completing an involved software setup, the Scanner is fantastic!

technous, Ebay

  • Summary: I did not anything about these. I researched on line and on eBay and made the decision to purchase one for semi-pro work, saving old film and slides (35mm only) and use my iMac. I got a great item hardly used, but it took some time to setup the SilverFast software. It was not the product's fault, but a matter of reading and understanding well the instructions. Once setup, I am very pleased with the settings, quality, speed of scans and ease of use.

Great scanner and very affordable.

  • Summary: Easy to set-up and use. I have many slides from the 50's and 60's. All midpriced scanners are somewhat slow but the results are worth the wait. I would definitely buy this Plustek 7400 scanner again.

Awesome scanner when used with Vuescan

Jackson Vandewouw, Amazon
23 October 2013
  • Summary: I had issues installing the Silverfast application with my Mac so I decided to use Vuescan instead. When you set it up properly you can get awesome results. Make sure you have your colour set to 48-bit instead of 24-bit (when using colour) or else you'll get some weird scanning artifacts. For the price I'd definitely recommend it to a photographer who is used to having the local lab scan it.

Great scanner for converting old family slides

LiteSinger, Amazon
18 April 2013
  • Summary: Hi, I purchased this scanner to scan a family library of over 4000 slides and it's worked great. My requirements were pretty straight forward, simple quick scanning to allow me to create good digital reproductions of the large library of slides. The Plustek software is easy to use and has the features that I needed to to use for the scanned images.

Good value

Martyn Thompson, Amazon

  • Summary: Sorry I don't speak German. The scanner delivers excellent quality for the price. I bought it to scan my father's slide collection which I had inherited and wanted to share with my sister and other family. I have now also started scanning my own archive of colour negatives, most of the old family photo's in albums are badly faded and need replacing (digitally). The only complaints I have are about the positioning of the film holder in the machine.

  • Summary: Bought this to scan 1500 diapositives. Works good and did exactl what was expected. Software ncluded is good. Scanning could be a bit faster but this was my older computer determining that.

Produkt sehr gut Software verbesserungsbedürftig

Zuchristian, geizhals.de

  • Summary: Der Scanner liefert, zusammen mit der professionellen Software SilverFast, hervorragende Ergebnisse. Doch leider ist die mitgelieferte Software noch nicht ganz auf Win7 abgestimmt. Wenn der Hersteller das Softwareproblem beseitigt, dann kann ich Plustek 7400 bestens empfehlen.

User Review

sandrr, club.foto.ru
18 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Аппаратом в принципе доволен. Для своей цены достаточно хороший функционал. Хорошее качество и достаточно высокая скорость сканирования. Но вот борьба с пылью порой отнимает много времени. Программное удаление пыли часто портит картинку, поэтому предварительно приходится очищать пленку вручную, а при загрузке в сканер накрывать аппарат, чтобы новая пыль не оседала на драгоценные снимки). С поцарапанной пленкой сложнее - приходится таки прибегать к программным методам.
  • Pros: качество скана, скорость, цена
  • Cons: только программная борьба с пылью. загрузка пленки только кусками не более 6 кадров. нет автопротяжки.

Plustec OpticFilm 7400

  • Summary: Ich stand beim Kauf vor der Entscheidung: 7600i oder 7400. Der einzige von außen erkennbare Unterschied (bis auf die Gehäusefarbe), ist das HARDWAREbasierte Staub- und Kratzerkorrekturverfahren beim 7600i, das beim 7400 von der SOFTWARE Silverfast übernommen wird. Da die Geräte rund 100 Euro auseinanderliegen und eine Flasche Pressluft sowie ein feiner Pinsel günstiger sind entschied ich mich für den "kleinen Bruder".

  • Summary: Von den Ergebnissen meiner gescannten mehr als 30 Jahre alten Dias bin ich hellauf begeistert. Probleme bei der Installation unter WIN XP/7 lassen sich vermeiden, wenn man den beigefügten "Wegweiser" genau befolgt. Zum Beispiel "Bildverarbeitungsprogramme" vorher deaktivieren oder die Reihenfolge der einzelnen Schritte bei der Installation genau beachten. Den Gerätemanager mit der Treiberanforderung beachten und die CD zum richtigen Zeitpunkt einsetzen.
