Purchased the flatbed scanner to scan old negatives, positives, and prints. It does a nice job. Easy to install and use. Downloaded most recent driver for Windows 8.1. Like the software, some learning curve, but by using and experimenting easy to get very good results. Lots of tips and tutorials online for this scanner also. Do not be fooled by reviews older than a couple of years. The newer drivers seem to have helped with resolution and contrast problems reported in early reviews. Worth the price if you want to digitize old photos, negatives, or slides.
I bought this scanner with the specific purpose of digitizing my old 35 mm slides. The scanner's template, which holds up to 4 slides at a time, can be a little frustrating to work with. However, given the price of the scanner it's a minor issue. I can't believe how great the scanned images look, even in the lower resolution scans.
