First, this scanner also washes out high-contrast pictures. Compared with the previous scanner I tried, this one reveals a little more detail and has somewhat better color fidelity. However, multiple scans of the same slide yielded different degrees of detail. You might need to play with the positioning of the slide in the scan slot in order to get the best result.
Second, just like the first scanner, this one also has blotches that cannot be removed by cleaning the lens. They show up in every scan. The problem is worse with this unit.
Third, and worst of all, like some other slide scanners I've read about, this one crops at least 10% of the left and right edges of each slide. That's a significant amount of picture (4 mm or more of a 35mm slide). The previous scanner I tried didn't have this problem.
The LCD has at least one stuck pixel.
I'm weighing my options. First, I will attempt to see if the manufacturer can correct these problems. But I know to be cautious. I could be told to send the unit in for repairs, only to get back something refurbished and still broken, with a note saying that it's operating within tolerances and according to factory specs. I've been down that road before, multiple times, and don't want to go there again. Hopefully, this won't happen! But I want to point out that it can.
If you want to see if your scanner has blotches / bad pixels on the CCD, just set it to scan slides and scan an empty slot (no slide). The image should be white or gray and fairly uniform. Dark or light spots will show up on regular slide scans as well as this test, always in the same positions. Larger spots will be visible on the LCD screen as well as in the final image.
*** UPDATE - June 8, 2012: SVP / Slim Sharp's customer service via e-mail is very responsive. However, handling of defects and returns has been extremely sloppy. Despite written agreements, no attempts were ever made to fix the problems I reported. Apparently, no one read the correspondence I was told to send in with the defective scanners. Responses by customer service also tended to be very impersonal. The end result: I've returned the product twice, have had to work to get my money back in full, have wasted over a month on this, and am now giving up on slide scanners altogether.
Very fast scan time on photos at high resolution
If the photo looks good it scans well
Unit is very cheaply made
Operating buttons stick, do not operate smoothly
There is no glass plate for pictures, cheap piece of plastic, scratches within 100 or so photos and then the scratches start showing up in the scan,I disassembled unit, the plastic plate was replaced with a piece of glass from Lowe"s which was cut to size for me, 2 pieces $2.30 how cheap
can you get . If you have a lot of photos to scan look for something else, I'm handy , but should not have to disassemble unit because of their design
flaws, I scanned about 1000 photos after this, unit worked fine with glass plate in place, I kept the unit because of the speed of scanning photos.
I stopped scanning pics to try some slides and negatives unit did not work, that was probably my fault since I took it apart to get rid of the plastic
scan plate. The glass worked better and it was not even optical glass. Your scanning photos, a plastic plate that scratches is not a good idea.
The documentation that comes with the unit is about the worst I have ever seen,
Very poor instructions, no warranty info, no contact info , no repair info of any shape or form, and yes I did save the box, took it apart looking for any documentation that I may have missed.
I did not return the item, because the neg and slide scanner was working when I first got it and it may have been my fault for taking it apart rather then sending it back, This is a major design flaw, no customer should have to try to correct this major drawback,
Another point, I also tried Lexan and Acrylic plates, Lexan may be strong but scratches easy, so does the Acrylic, I you have this unit and need to replace the plate don't waste your time get glass.
I'm looking for another unit and would not recommend this to anyone, your money will be better spent on another product.
