Waste of Money, does not perform

 

There are none that I can think of.

It just does not work as it should.

Adequate and useful scanner

 

Easy to use, handles negative strips easily, good value.

Not professional quality, but that's not what you paid for, is it?

Not worth the money

 

It hasn't damaged any film or slides yet.

Bad tonal range, dark scans (especially B&W film), drivers frequently hang forcing a reboot.

It'll damage your negatives!

 

Automatic loading of films (when it works)

Scratch negatives, software set to auto-balancing produces horrible pictures.

When working scanned slides fairly well.

Did not work most of the time.

Autofocus

Usually doesn't work.

Shutterbugs have a new toy they can afford to play with.

Very cost effective & comes with Photoshop!

Good for the price

 

I paid about $250 for mine, had it 3 weeks, then returned it and will be receiving my 3600 PRO shortly. One thing that surprised me a little bit is that even though this scanner is one of the faster ones out there, scanning slides and film is a very...

Decent scans, easy to use, trouble-free installation

Autofocus not always perfect, soft images
