Summary: I purchased scanner to move 35mm negatives and slides to digital. I had scanned several previously using a template on a flat bed scanner. The results were far superior to this dedicated product. Very difficult to center negative in holder above light source. Color adjustment is required each scan. The default settings in scanner or nothing like the original photograph. Finally, painfully slow on a 2.4ghz Windows 7 64 Bit with 9 mg dram. A "don't buy" product.
Summary: I purchased this scanner for a Christmas gift from ANTonline. When we finally tried to hook it up it wouldn't work. I've been in contact with the manufactuer for over a month trying to figure it out. The Manufactuerer is willing to return it, but they are in the UK...the place I purchased it from (ANTonline) wouldn't take it back 31 days after purchase. They have a 30 day return policy..."Sorry" Returning it to the UK will cost $40.
Summary: Contrary to the previous review our experience was completely negative. Impossible to decipher poorly written manual (different versions online and with product); took three highly competent geeks over an hour to decide it was unworkable. Not recommended - and we're keeping this clean.
Summary: Wasn't expecting much from this scanner having read the reviews and being a believer of "you get what you pay for", but the scanned images I was getting when using slides were very very bad. Even messing about with the scan settings in the supplied software gave some improvements in image quality but the biggest issue for me was the over exposure (I think that's what it's called) which made the white colour elements in the image 'glow' and made me feel like I was looking...
Summary: Having read the very mixed reviews for this product I decided to take a risk - a big mistake. It was very easy to set up but the quality of the results are awful. The images produced from some very sharp slides looked as if tehy had been taken with an early camera phone. I have about 1,000 slides that I'd like to scan - but not with this. Have now returned to Amazon for a refund whilst I think what to do next. nb.
Summary: I bought this to replace a flatbed scanner which was very cumbersome for scanning 35mm slides. The results were disappointing in the extreme - far worse than the flatbed. Using the software supplied, the results were very bad. I tried driving it from within Photoshop and quality improved marginally but nowhere near to being acceptable: light blue skies turned a blank white while no detail was retained in shadows at all.
Avoid at all costs. This is a very poor quality plastic toy

Summary: I placed an order for the Veho VF-004 5MP Negative & Slide Scanner after reading 3 very positive reviews. I was especially attracted to the idea of converting all those old slides into JPG images that I could then view on my laptop. I now believe those reviews must have been written by someone connected to the supplier! This item is no more than a very poor quality plastic toy which does not deliver any useful images whatsoever.
Excerpt: Pues como dice el título, una forma inutil de tirar el dinero, os explico, tras mirar por internet buscando algún producto que me sirviera para pasar unas diapositivas al ordenador, vi este anunciado y me decidi a comprarlo ya que el precio con los gastos de envío eran bastante asequibles (85 euros), total que cuando me llega lo monto miro las intrucciones y pongo la primera diapositiva, y sorpresa sale peor que si la miro a la luz de una lampara y ya puedes tocar y...
