This scanner is exactly what I was looking for--a scanner that will scan in rolls of negatives and slides (one at a time). After trying it for two weeks, I have concluded that the hardware is excellent and very capable, but you will need other than the OEM software package (CyberView) to fully exploit the capabilities. The biggest problem with CyberView is that it is completely unstable--it crashes all the time (I'm using Vista Home Premium). Furthermore, while I could get an excellent scan from slides, I could not with 100 ISO negatives. I did contact the manufacturer--they were attentive and took in my list of problems with their software, but they have not fixed anything (but I hear there is a new software release coming out "soon"). After trying both VueScan and SilverFast, I found that the scanner produces excellent images from both slides and negatives, so plan on buying one of these packages at a cost of $50-100 (depending on which version you want). Both of the products are 100% stable and fully exploit the hardware capabilities of this scanner.

Follow-up 12-30-09:
Well, all is not going well with this scanner after using it more extensively. It exhibits a color shift or streaking problem on the left half of some scanned-in slides and nearly all scanned-in negatives. The manufacturer has sent two "tested" replacement units and they have the same problem. I installed the scanner on another computer and it still has the same problem. The manufacturer says I'm the only one reporting the problem, so they are not showing any urgency in fixing it. SilverFast using multi-exposure seems to be able to remove the problem on negatives but not slides. Anyone else experiencing this? So at this point I can no longer recommend this scanner until the problem gets resolved (if ever!).

My Original Feedback:

If you are looking to scan your thousands of old films and slides, then this is "THE" final film/slide scanner you are looking for. The best feature in this scanner is that, if you have the 35mm films in a roll (I never cut them), you simply load them, select "Scan All" and come back in an hour or two to see the results.

After buying testing and returning the following scanners, I finally found "PrimeFilm 7250uPro3" to be my final film/slide scanner.

- Brookstone iConvert (low quality)
- Wolverine F2D 300 (low quality)
- Pacific Image ImageBox 9MP (medium quality, broke after a few uses)
- Pacific Image's PrimeFilm 7250u high quality (not quite satisfying)

Update as of April 19, 2013:

Buy at your own risk. It worked fine for a short while, until it started scanning only 70% of my negatives. Customer Service is wonderful. However, after returning the unit and getting a replacement, it worked for a week and then it started scanning at really slow. Sometimes it works normally and sometimes it has some issues. Although I must say that the quality of the scan at 7200 DPI is extremly good.

I bought the Pacific Image PrimeFilm 7250uPro3 from another online retailer. The software is horrific. I tried the software on both my Windows 7 64 bit PC and my Windows XP 32 bit laptop. It would not work with either machine. I downloaded new driver and installed and uninstalled software for five hours. I'm returning the product after a one-day trial.

The default driver/software for this scanner needs to be re-written by a different company. It's unusable.

Vuescan uses the default driver this scanner ships with, which means it doesn't work.

Silverfast uses their own driver, so it works much more quickly.

I have to be careful with this scanner, similar to carrying a pot of boiling water. If you move one degree out of what the scanner deems "acceptable" it will lock up and freeze, crashing Silverfast and making a hard reset on the scanner the only option.

The way I have been able to get it to work properly is to first upgrade the firmware (http://scanace.com), then follow these steps:

1. Turn on the scanner.
2. Start silverfast and wait to click "Continue" arrow on the splash screen.
3. Wait until scanner light is solid GREEN, then click "Continue"
4. Insert film strip (I scan 36xp rolls all at once). Silverfast will restart.
5. Click "Overview." Let the scanner do its thing. Sometimes it locks up at this point, but rarely.
6. At this point, you can choose to do a Prescan for the first negative, and wait then set your ICE correction (I set it manually at 20), Negative type, and crop (I select all visible area and crop later).
7. Go up to Scan in Silverfast and hold down on the button until you see Batch Scan, then click it.
8. At this point, you have no control. The scanner will scan and save the files somewhere. I have had the best luck with just leaving my computer while this happens, and not touching ANYTHING. About 30 minutes later, come back and hopefully it won't have frozen or crashed. You will now have a bunch of 2700 dpi (my setting) images that can be color corrected with Lightroom or Photoshop.

Good luck.
