This is a very versitile scanner. I like being able to load up the flatbed with prints and designate the print area for each along with individually noting which are scanned with various enhancements. The negative scanning is not quite as easy and both the directions and negative holders could be improved (and perhaps have on the newer models). The scans are reasonably quick (except if one uses high resolution which may be needed for negatives but not for prints). There are a few issues that prevent a 5 star rating. The scanner does no scan the entire flatbed, so one has to be very careful when placing prints on it to be scanned. It can be quite annoying having to reposition to get the print scanned edge to edge. Document scanning is not as easy as on other scanners. The preview gives you a false impression that the document will not scan correctly unless one boosts brightness and or contrast.
The software loaded on Windows 10, flawlessly. I pluged in the power and USB cables and was instantly making scans of photos and negatives. A great product that should not be passed by if you need a scanner.
I have tried other scanners for scanning slides with not so great results. This scanner does a great job of scanning my old family slides 3 at a time. It also does a great job on regular photo's but I would highly recommend for digitizing your family memories.
