Profession looking 35mm scans at an affordable price

Summary: I purchased this scanner to digitize thousands of ethnographic research 35mm slides and negatives taken in the 1970s, 80s and 90s. The quality of the scans are very acceptable when using auto settings, but I have started using Silverlight.
Summary: I actually purchased mine as a mfr refurb unit from Plustek. I agree with the other reviews, it takes a while to really get the hang of the SilverFast software. I embarked on a project to scan almost 6,000 frames of negatives/slides during the month of March when the unit finally arrived.
Summary: I have 35mm slides dating back to 1963. It was never my habit to print them, just project them. As a result, my almost middle aged daughter has never seen her childhood pictures. For Christmas, I digitized a starter DVD. What a hit! Not just with her, but also my wife and granddaughter.
Summary: I purchased this scanner to create quality scans of my Kodachrome slide collection (about 6000), and for the money spent I couldn't be happier. I was lucky in finding a used unit on Amazon for $200, but even at the typical $350-$400 prices with bundled Silverfast SE software for a new unit offers a...
Summary: This converter worked flawlessly. I had more than 800 slides from 1970 to 1974 of which my family never saw at least for many years. This Plustek converter worked miracles. All slides were converted easily and professionally .
Summary: This scanner is everything it says it is. Installing the software was very easy. The scanning software is easy to use. Playing with the different settings is the best way to figure things out. You can actually see what the result is with the scan in a short amount of time.
Summary: The scanner is easy to setup and to operate. Anyone who has worked at all with photos on a computer should be able to handle this with ease. The dust and scratch remover, however, does not work very well. I understand the new 7600 remedies that problem.
Summary: Our pictures are stored in boxes in the top of our closet. The odds of ever looking at them again are pretty slim. I am often working with iPhoto on our Mac and have used Photoshop to create collages of family trips. I will also put on a slideshow of selected photos and let it run.
Summary: I love this scanner. It comes with professional software. I bought it to scan some of my old 'Kodachrome 64' slides for my image library. At around $300, this scanner is a huge jump from the $100 scanners and it can scan at 7200 dots per inch or less if you wish. I scan at 3600 dpi.
Summary: Awesome. The quick-time on demand tutorial makes this thing simple to use, even for an idiot like me. For every single step there is a Q button to use if you need it. Do not let my calling it simple cause you to assume that its cheesy Very high quality materials and extremely flexible and effective...
