Great little film Scanner

  • Excerpt: Great scanner! I scan color negs and slides works very well. I was skeptical at fist whenI read the reviews about the suppiled software SilverFast. The software works great had no issues with it easy to use, took 10 minutes to learn. Very easy.

Useless and nonfunctional paperweight.

  • Summary: This scanner will not connect to Windows no matter what I do. Windows does not seem to notice that a USB device has been connected to it, and even with the latest version of the drivers from Plustek's website, the scanner goes unnoticed by both Windows and Silverfast. I have sent a message to Plustek's tech support, but until I get some kind of reply or solution, I have a very expensive paper weight.

Does what I want and expected of it

  • Excerpt: I have been using this to digitize old (some very old - 1960s) slides (Kodachrome and Ektachrome) as well as old (color) negatives. I could wish for it to be a bit faster, but it actually isn't too bad. Running this on OS/X 10.10. I didn't bother to load the supplied software (other than the 64 bit driver). Reviews were universally bad, so I used VueScan, which works very well.

  • Excerpt: Use the scanner after my old one from the 80'... Scanning Slides is fine, I have only a problem with my old glass framed/sealed slides. Some suggestion for glass framed sealed slides!

Great scanner with different software

KLP, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The scanner itself is very capable of producing high quality scans. I would suggest scanning at 3600dpi, since you'll get the high res scan but keep your sanity as far as time frame. A motorized version would be nice so you wouldn't have to manually move the film holder, but that's just something else that could break, so I really don't mind having manually move it frame by frame.

I am stuck with a useless paperweight.

Mike Harman, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased a Plustek OpticFilm 7300 scanner a few years ago and it worked well with Windows XP, but there is no support to update the software, drivers, or Silverfast so it can be used with a newer Windows 8.1 computer. I have searched and downloaded what I thought were updates, many multiple attempts, but they don't work. I am stuck with a useless paperweight.

Great product.

  • Summary: I have had nothing but pleasure using the scanner. Very easy to use and reliable. The scans are excellent if the slide is in relatively good condition. The soft ware is okay but if you get vuescan your experience will be rewarded even more. I have no reservations about recommending this product.

Great hardware, but opt out for different software.

Carl Nenzen Loven "Carl", Amazon

  • Summary: This is my first dedicated neg-scanner, so I might not be an expert on the subject. But coming from a Canon 9000F flatbed, I just have to say WOW. The quality of my 35mm slides now are better than my flatbed 120 scans. And the latitude and sharpness. Only problem I guess is the way for me to scan XPan, but the scanner was not made for that so I shouldn't be complaining. One word of advice though.
