Excerpt: This is a very frustrating piece of equipment. You can clean it over and over again and every time you scan a photo, you get faint white lines across the image. I wish I would have spent the money for a more expensive model. I would not recommend this product. You'd get better results if you used a flatbad scanner & scanned each image one at a time - although it would take much much longer.
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. It also lacks a movable guide so that photos can be fed in straight. I gave up and bought consumer-level flatbed that can repetitively scan photos in a few seconds each and produces a much better result.
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: Ich habe den Scanner heute an amazon zurück geschickt. Zur Bewertung: die Software auf der mitgelieferten CD konnte unter Windows 7 nicht installiert werden. Das ist aber auch schon der einzige Kritikpunkt. Der Scanner ansonsten hat gut funktioniert. Die Software kann auf der Herstellerseite problemlos geladen werden. Warum trotzdem nur 2 Sterne?: Ich hatte keine besonders großen Anforderungen und auch meine Erwartungen aufgrund der Geräteklasse heruntergeschraubt.
