Excerpt: I am finally starting to scan a portfolio of 30 years worth of work and this film scanner is making it so easy to do. It was quick and easy to load the software and to start using it. No problems yet and hopefully none to come.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Best value I've found in a medium-priced film scanner

Summary: I'm getting acceptable results with this unit when scanning at half (3600 dpi) resolution. At 7200dpi it's almost unbearably slow- especially if you use the IR scratch removing feature. In any case, this is still the best film scanner w/software package I've found for under $1000.
Summary: Great scanner, great results. I used it to scan thousands of pictures initially after it was bought. A year forward I wanted to start reusing it, couldn't find the CD (who saves CDs these days) with the software serial number. I contacted silverfast, they referred me to plustek.
Excerpt: I would give 5 stars to this product. The software that comes with the scanner is great to scan negatives, but when you try to scan slides (positives), results are very disappointing. I tried different settings and no good results with any of them.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: If you want high resolution slide scanning, it doesn't. As the guy at Plustek told me, it's only $500, what do you expect? If you want high-res buy the 120 for $2K. However, if a 9X12, or almost 10X14 with pixels squaring, then this will work for you.
Excerpt: I bought this scanner to enable the archiving of the many 35mm slides that I sitting in boxes. The scanner is connected to a Mac and, since the quick scan software is not functional on a Mac, Iam using the included Silverfast software.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
