My initial setup failed and normal troubleshooting didn't help, so I called their support line. It was a VERY pleasant experience. The woman I spoke with (immediately - zero time on hold) didn't waste my time with verification - reading off serial numbers of whatever - and although I didn't ask where she was located she was absolutely 100% understandable. I let her connect to my computer with TeamViewer and she reinstalled the software, restarted my computer, etc. It still didn't work. Then she suggested I try a different USB port - which somehow did the trick. Total call time was 15 minutes : Spectacular.
As a Mac user, I prefer to scan with Image Capture - but it doesn't even see this scanner. The only options appear to be the Plustek software or using TWAIN. But I guess because there's no preview, that makes sense. The software itself is OK. It works in a pretty unique way for scanner software. When you scan images they are accumulated in RAM, and are not written to disk unless / until you "save" them. For my Mac with 16GB, I get around 50 or 60 photos done before I get the warning about memory and have to save.
The auto rotate and de-skew works very well most of the time, including on the unevenly cut prints I pulled out of albums. A couple of times I've gotten some weird artifacts, and it sometimes incorrectly crops dark backgrounds.But overall it's a good thing not having to make sure you feed the photos in 100% parallel.
There's no internal color correction option - at least not automatically - so if you want to modify anything, you're doing it in your editor of choice. Other scanners I've used do a great job, and I'd appreciate having that option. But I can live with uncorrected images that maintain the 70s patina of early color film.
Edited to add : After scanning a couple thousand photos, I must report that the Mac software (both 32 and 64 bit versions) is "pretty flakey." When powered off or otherwise disconnected, the pairing issues I experienced initially can return and sometimes it takes me a bunch of flailing to fix the problem. I am extremely confident my computer's USB ports are functioning - I've never had any problem with my numerous other devices. I've tried multiple cables, so I don't think that's an issue. I'm almost positive this is the result of Plustek's software. Hopefully they will update from "22.214.171.124 (1697)" soon and fix this hassle.
This is the first scanner my wife has declared easy enough for her to handle on her own the very first time she sat down at it.
1. Before you turn on the scanner the first time, be sure to remove the packing tape and foam from behind the bar across the front. Gently pull the bar away from the machine; it will swing down and away. Then push it back in place. Do this before you attempt calibration
2. Run back-to-back calibrations before you start scanning. Before proper calibration, I was getting closely spaced colored vertical lines throughout the scan output. The Calibration function is hidden behind the question mark icon toward the upper right of the software screen. Keep that white Calibration sheet safe for future use. You may well need it.
3. Use Maximum quality (100%) JPEG setting for best scan results. The resulting file sizes are modest my modern standards, even at 600 resolution.
4. Settings (gear icon) allows choice between 300 and 600 resolution and also allows pre-choosing a folder in which to auto save each scan. But you still have to select Save (floppy disc icon) for each scan. The scans are not auto-saved upon scanning; the "auto" part is auto selecting the proper folder in which to save each scan before you start scanning.
5. The auto crop/auto deskew function has worked very well for me so far.
This scanner is great for digitizing large quantities of old photos. It works very fast, easily, and produces high quality results at 300 resolution. No, the required proprietary software doesn't match the editing features of Photoshop, But what you lose in digital editing flexibility and quality, you gain back in huge dividends of speed and easy of use.
