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.
I have bought my share of printers and the Epson Artisan 1430 Inkjet printer is the printer I have been looking for. The quality is fantastic and it is simple to manage and maintain.
I purchased a R280 and followed with Artisan 710 and I think they are great printer for my personal use. Over the past year, my friend who also used Epson printer gave me an R1900 and Artisan 1430 because he purchased 2 new Epson printers. I have never owed any other printers except Epson printer. As you can tell by the models, there are old units but they are working very, very well so reliability is not an issue with Epson printers. If any of these printers fail, I would not hesitate to buy another Epson printer.
I bought this scanner a few months ago but wanted to wait until I had a chance to use it on different types of images before commenting. I love this scanner! I have been waiting for something like this to hit the market for some time. I have scanned hundreds of negatives and many slides. I am even considering rescanning the old photographs I have already scanned using my printer. That is how good this scanner works for me. In my opinion there is no comparison to anything I have done from home. This scanner has paid for itself - just with the negatives - several times over.
