Summary: I've only had experience with flatbed photo scanners. As harsh as the cons I've listed are I still like this thing, it's quick, easy and I can digitize photos from a laptop while on the go visiting family.
Pros: Small, Quick, Easy, Works, Cheap, USB powered (draws 400mA).
Cons: Unfortunately there are several cons. The calibration function doesn't work, all photos are slightly distorted. The results are stretched and make everyone look fat. The scanning element isn't very high quality. Scans of photos taken on a bright sunny day come out looking drab and bland (over-sat...
Summary: I also tried this scanner on a laptop XP 32 bit and it worked fine. I am amazed at how small this scanner is, it looks like something Ken & Barbie would use in their dollhouse so for your traveling setup this thing is perfect... it's lightweight and super compact.
Pros: For Windows 7 64bit I used the updated driver from the manufacturer's website which installed very easy. Once I tossed the Plustek junk USB cable out and had a good workable USB cable installed in its place the setup was simple. Open the Plustek software and setting the resolution higher to 600dp...
Cons: The Plustek cable is defective. I used an old spare I had in reserve and everything worked fine after changing out the cable. There was some dust on the scanner lens causing a streak through the first picture but after one cleaning the streak was gone. It won't scan a 4.25" x 11" if you are think...
Summary: For an scanner of small photos it does a good job and is worth the sale price of $59.99, but not $89.99. I would have given it a 5 star rating except for the photo frame changes.
Pros: Very good image quality. It is actually a 600dpi not a 300dpi as advertised . Easy to connect and operate.
Cons: For some reason after about 30 scans, the image would not copy. I had to restart my computer to start scanning again. Also the the image frame would slip for no apparent reason, and it often took several tries to get an image lined up properly. There is a small learning curve on how to feed the p...
Summary: poor photo scanner any kind of dust on photo show up as streaks on scan, needs to be cleaned constantly. quality of scan even at 600 DPI is not very good, scans very fast.Wanted to scan hundreds of pictures end up scanning 30 and gave up.
Summary: This arrived quite promptly and on the face of it looked easy to operate, followed the instruction to set it up but just couldn't get it to work. Disappointed with the fact that it was obviously broken I decided to return it for a full refund.
Summary: I was very excited when my scanner arrived and was ready with a pile of old photo's to scan but my joy was short lived it just won't install on my window 7 laptop! With difficulty I managed to install it on another vista computer and once installed the scanning was easy and quick.
Summary: I have owned Plustek scanner products before and have been very pleased, but was underwhelmed with this one. It does a reasonable job on older matt finish photos but simply cannot grip recent highly shiney photos resulting in bad, irregularly stretched scans.
Summary: Already by the first picture scan, you could see a clear blue line down the middle of each and every photo. I tried a few photos and same result. The scanner has been send back, now I hope for a problem-free refund. :(
