We have, so far, only scanned old negatives, and the scanner has worked well for that, although it is a very slow process. There are no instuctions for using the software that is included, so you have to just play around with it until you get the hang of it. Once you know what you are doing, it goes a little faster. I would like the option of purchasing additional trays. The price at Overstock was considerably less than what I have seen at a number of other sites.
