Review: Ion Audio Slides2PC Scanner. What To Do With All Of Those Old Slides.


The problem today, though, is that as this technology was overcome by digital cameras, the tools required to display slides became more difficult to obtain.  Just try finding a good 35 mm slide projector today.  So, if you want to be able to view all...

Good product easy to use.


I scaned about 1275 slides for a project in about 3 day's, it was a lot of work but easy to do. The scanner has was able to lighten up some of the dark slides so image was easy to see. I would recomend the unit to anyone else to use.

Worked once


Scanned once with poor quality, haven't used in few weeks and now just scans blacked out image.Spend a little more and save money on Tylenol for your headaches it will cause.
