I bought this to scan ancient family photos, many of which tend to be too large to fit A4 scanners. It installed easily on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I’m impressed by the quality, and the depth of field; several photos are behind 3mm of glass which I don’t want to disturb, and these scan very well.
Things are working out nicely with my new equipment. My original scanner is 12 years old. It is better constructed and comes with 7 trays vs. the three I had. It runs quieter, faster and has a smaller footprint. I scan 120 film strips exclusively. All of my scans are sharp.
I have been searching for a high end scanner for maybe 5 years or more as I am a historian & genealogist who scan antiquarian books & maps for my website and every one I tried was just not worth getting again. Then I thought one day I had never searched Amazon and when I searched for this up popped this AWESOME scanner.
I love it so much! It scans so fast and it’s so easy to use. I create slideshows as a hobby and have to scan a lot of photos…this cuts my scanning time down tremendously! I have even just scanned whole pages of the skinny type photobooks without having to remove the photos or plastic cover and they turn out great.
This is the best scanner I have ever owned. The scans are of high quality. When I bought this, all I was interested in was a high quality, easy to use scanner and that’s exactly what I got. It also scans notes, cards, and special letters and makes them into jpegs. It is also very fast as far as scanners go.
I bought this product to digitize all of my old 4 X 6 prints and it has more than filled the bill. It is very fast and even if a print scans crooked, it will be straight on the screen. The 300 dpi optical resolution is adequate for viewing scanned photos on a computer screen.
I am extremely happy with this scanner. I am a ‘Baby-Boomer’ and back in the day we did not have digital photos, so I have thousands of photos in boxes in need of saving, and this product is doing just that. The installation of the software was easy and un-complicated.
