I purchased this from the Brookstone store. It is the slowest scanner I have ever used. If your willing to waste 5 min per slide scan this may be the scanner for you. It is not compatable with 64bit Vista. Brookstone has no plans to make it compatable. I used it on my 32bit pc but lost patience after 20 min and I had only scanned 3 slides. Don't buy this one!!!!

I bought this product for my father for Christmas and it doesn't work. After the software is installed, when you plug it in, warning box comes up and says that Windows(XP) does not recognize the device. It continues to say this. What a disappointment!!!

I received this as a Christmas gift and am very disappointed. I've spent most of today getting it set-up and was able to get it to work once to scan three 35 mm slides. The results were terrible - the slides were all washed out. There is no support from Brookstone. I'm returning this one.

My husband got me this for my birthday and I was thrilled because I prefer shooting film over shooting digital, but I still want to be able to have a quick way to get my photos online for people to view. It was easy to set up, and fast to scan. However, the quality of the scan was lacking. The colors were not as vivid as they should have been, the picture wasn't too sharp, and the highlights were blown-out. I thought that maybe it was just a badly exposed negative, so I tried a few that I knew were exposed well and produced a good print. Again, the highlights were very blown-out and the picture wasn't sharp. Because it's close by, I took the same negatives to Walmart and had them scanned. The quality was superior. We returned the product. It may be good for someone who is just looking for a quick way to get their negatives converted to digital (but if I were one of those people, I would pay maybe $50 at the most for a product that did that), but not for a photophile who needs the details to come out crisp and clear and not blown-out.

I purchased this from a Brookstone store. I wish they had said on the box that it was not compatible with 62-bit, even though I have a 32-bit system I might have thought about this in terms of thinking about upgrading in the future.
Anyway, I rated this a three because of that and speed.
I did not seem to have the extreme problems that a lot of people had. It worked fine when I loaded it, I didn't have to use the manual, just figured it out from screen information.
It is slow, that I will give you, but I did not encounter the slowness that some people did. I did an entire tray of slides while watching tv, took me maybe 1 1/2 hours, but I knew it was going to be labor intensive because you are doing 1 slide at a time. What is cumbersome is that the slide holder only holds three slides. Would be nice if it held more. I tested it on negatives also, it worked.
The software has some neat features like batch renaming, file type conversion... which I liked.
As for the quality of the pics, so far OK. I mean they look good when I view them on the computer screen and I've Facebooked and emailed a couple that are ok. Not the same quality as the original slide and some color change, but they are very presentable. I have not tested printing on paper yet, but I don't have the greatest printer in the world anyway.
All in all I have to weigh out what it would have cost me to have my slides down by a business, and the time they would have taken, I think the $99 was worth it. After I convert my slides I will only be using it for negatives and I have a lot more negatives than slides! But I have a decent amount of slides.
So... bottom line, I give it a 3 out of 5 because of the slowness and the fact that the company does not tell you up-front (on the box people!) that it is not compatible with a 62-bit system.
I would recommend it after I pointed out the above to anyone.

Shame on Brookstone for putting such a low quality item in the store! Their reputation for quality is taking a hit. I bought their scanner in the after-Christmas sale. My brand new Windows Vista laptop cannot connect to the scanner. None of the drivers on the installation disk work. The thing is very lightweight and plasticky. The instructions are horrible and useless. I'm taking it back tomorrow and will be hesitant to ever buy anything with the Brookstone name on it. By the way, the clerk at the store told me the scanner does a great job and none had been returned. Based on my experience and the other reviews, this has to be a lie.

Very slow, the quality of the scan was horrible (everything was completely washed out), and although I could get it to work on my old, slow laptop, it would not scan the slides on my faster desktop. Back it goes.

iConvert Slide and Negative Scanner
This thing tries to get the same amount of total light out of each slide. Faces in a darker background are utterly, completely, totally washed out. Even with slides that are well balanced in value, the whites wash out. I scanned some excellent slides with horrible results. Also, not that it would have helped the product any, but the guide was written by someone for whom English was a second language.
