This piece of gear is a really brilliant idea. It's easy to use and the scan time is fast, too. However it is very fiddley to load and each scan must be made separately, so lots of button pushing. As far as image quality goes ... Well first the scans are not sharp and second the scan is great if your image consists of mid tones. The hi-lights get blown out and the Shadows go black with no detail and the color goes quite red. I had a few hundred slides I wanted to archive, but after scanning about 50, I've decided that the quality is not worth carrying on with. There is only so much you can do to the scans with photoshop. I happen to be a professional PhotoShop user and pro photographer and I find that even after using all the tricks in the book, the images are still well under par. I guess it just depends on what you want to call a quality scan/image.
