Summary: Spent a couple of monthe sizing these devices up. Very mixed reviews so I went for the Veho as I'd read more positive than negative. I was very surprised at how easy it was to install and use.Well packaged in a drum ,Software was simple and the device itself was almost a joy to use. Only drawback was tthe negative slide tray is fiddly to use,but once you get the hang of it its easy.
Summary: I had a lot of doubts about jumping in and purchasing this unit, having scanned about 70 slides I can now say my doubts were not founded. The image quality is more than adequate for pictures that were sat in a slide box unseen for years, and memories are flooding back instantly. Take a little time to load the software, read the instruction, plug in and away you go; very impressed indeed and very glad that I bought this unit.
Summary: At the price this is an excellent piece of kit. It is easy to install and easier to use. One thing I like compared to previous experiences with another (older) scanner is the fact that compared to the latter, is puts a generous amount of light through the film, far more than you would want so you have to take it down. I was very tired of the darker results I used to get even at that scanner's maximum.
Summary: It takes a bit to set up but once it's up and going it does a great job. I have only used it on negatives at the moment but I'm looking forward to using slides. See you old negatives come to life... a real thrill. I recommend this product as a basic converter.
Summary: I found the unit very easy to set up and use. The results for negative scanning is very good but the 35mm slides appear over exposed. The picture has to be frozen quickly to achieve a reasonable result. Overall good value for money.
Summary: It does what it says on the tin! I am happy with my purchase. If you want a straightforward way to turn negatives into digital pictures, this will do it. So far most negatives have needed the colour enhancing with digital software after importing. After scanning into my computer the pictures tend to look a bit washed out, but I haven't finished experimenting with all the scan/upload settinngs yet.
Summary: I purchased this product to convert my extensive slide collection to digital photos for storage on CD. I am not very technically minded, but found the Veho fairly straightforward to use and, after some trial and error practice runs, by switching from the bundled software to Photoshop Elements for scanning and transferring photos the results are perfectly acceptable when using the highest resolutions.
Summary: I installed this scanner with ease on a Windows XP laptop and within an hour had two 35mm films scanned in. After a while I got into a routine, getting familiar with the loading, button pressing, transferring etc and would expect to get a 36 frame film scanned in about 15 minutes in future. I had been apprehensive about how the scans would come out having seen the mixed reviews but I was pleasantly surprised.

Summary: Well, I hope I can resolve the clash between the lovers and haters of this item. This is a basic product for those who want to digitise a whole bunch of snaps and are not precious about the quality. If what is important to you are the memories a photo brings back and you have a whole bunch of negatives to crunch through then this is for you as long as you are happy to trade quality for speed. If not, buy the top-end Plustek with all the bells and whistles.
