Microtek ScanMaker i900 --Best of Both Worlds

 

We had planned to squirrel away the winter scanning a few hundred old slides. Since we had already discussed using your digicam to copy slides, we wanted to use a film scanner this time. Just how feasible would it be to scan a bunch of old slides with...

Terrible Product

 

None

Slow, inaccurate, hard to use. I actually ordered 2 and 1 came DOA. Technical support is atrocious. No repair facilities in the states. No live help. They sent me an email with tech support. Absolutely unacceptable. BUYER BEWARE

This scanner is good enough for most of our work. It produces very professional work.

Excellent scanner for the price. We have used it for two weeks scanning different media such as positive, transparency & slides. The auto detect feature for slides is perfect for us. Color calibration is near perfect with Mac platform & Photoshop. The...

Loading the initial application softwares is a little confusing. It takes us more than just loading the CD to get it working.
