Don't trust the Plustek USB cable in the box

Michael F., Newegg
2 June 2012
  • 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...

Exactly what I needed

  • Pros: Accurate Color, Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Extremely portable, Good Resolution, No power cord, USB Conectivity
  • Cons: Lack of an edge guide, Some crooked scans

It's 600dpi not 300dpi.

James C., Newegg
26 January 2011
  • 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.

Great Little Scanner!

Alabama Graphic Artist, B&H Photo
23 January 2011
  • Excerpt: I picked up the Plustek SmartPhoto scanner to replace my flatbed scanner that wasn't compatible with Windows 7, when I realized I had a lot of 4x6" prints I wanted to scan. Once I was able to get it installed it is super easy to use! Plug it in, push the button, and it just works.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Difficult Setup

Definately a Keeper!

  • Excerpt: The SmartPhoto P60 Scanner is the only way to go if you've got alot of photos to scan! I've already scanned almost 1000 photos and can't believe the time savings versus scanning with my All In One. The only thing I would have liked is some sort of 'guide' for feeding the photos in straighter.

  • Excerpt: for the money this is a pretty good scanner. It does leave some white lines across pictures randomly as is mentioned in other reviews. Seems all portable scanners have similiar problems. Overal it is fast easy to use and does a reasonable job.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Was inexpensive
  • Cons: Leaves feedback lines

Works well.

  • Excerpt: I purchased the SmartPhoto P60 Photo Scanner to convert many years of photos to digital files. Everything I need to copy is 3 1/2x5 1/2 or 4x6. Simple to set up and use...easier than a flatbed scanner. I've scanned about a hundred photos. So far it has worked very well.

  • Summary: Bin relativ zufrieden mit dem Scanner. Ich nutze ihn, um meine Fotoalben zu digitalisieren - also "Hausgebrauch". Auch kleinformatige Rezepte, Notizen, Visitenkarten usw. habe ich schon eingescannt.
