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.
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.

I am very disappointed with how this scans slides. There is lots of information on the slide that does not scan. I find no reason to use this.Published on December 29, 2009 by lots of slides
