I previously used a Primefilm PF3600 and changed to the Plustek 8200i SE simply to upgrade the technology. The objective was to digitise monochrome film and Kodak slides from 40 years ago, many of which had dust marks and scratch damage. The SilverFast software was a major decision maker. The new scanner came with good packaging and included a nice case to keep the scanner free of air borne contamination when not in use. The film holders for slides and film were satisfactory and simple to use. The software disc loaded straight away and contained excellent explanatory videos for each of the scanner's attributes. A wonderfully precise German voice accompanied each short video. The operation is logical and the scanner is very simple to use. The scanning mechanism is much quieter than the one in the PF3600 which sounds like an MRI scanner.

Scanning speed at 3600 dpi is much the same as the Primefilm machine, at about four minutes per frame. If 1800 dpi is selected then the scan is shorter. Clearly the greater the definition required, the slower the scan and the bigger the TIFF files. At 7200 dpi files can be 150 MB, but a Kodak colour slide might amount to 50 MB. The SilverFast software offers Scratch and Dust Removal (SDR) and a clever iSDR option using an infra red scan. I have found both these options need careful use. The SDR defaults to a figure of 100 on its sensitivity control and at this level it can give strange results, detecting for example, the whites of eyes as faults. It is wise to try lower settings with both SRD and iSRD until satisfactory results are obtained.

Overall the scanner does a professional job but needs a bit of common sense in the settings. Its not difficult, and greatly reduces the work required in Aperture or Photoshop. I am pleased with the product and Amazon delivered it to me within a couple of days.

It was with some degree of trepidation that I placed an order for this scanner, as some of the reviews were not particularly good - but did so as it was the type of scanner that I was interested in. I am very happy to say that the scanner software and Silverfast software installed first time and I did not experience any bother at all, (Dell XPS i7, Win 7 x64 Home Prem). Silverfast found the scanner immediately and works well. As mentioned by another reviewer, there are two installation discs, one for the scanner and one for Silverfast. They are both stored in a single disc box - the Silverfast activation code is printed on the front cover of the disc box - so don't lose the box!

I still need to spend some time to get familiar with Silverfast, as the documentation supplied is not overly comprehensive. My initial reaction is that it works very well and I am pleased with results so far. Silverfast feels fairly intuitive and I didn't find it difficult to get the basic hang of, there are many features available which I haven't even looked at yet.

In addition, I have noticed that Adobe Elements v10 (which was already installed on my computer) also spotted the scanner and scans fine from within Element. I only saw that after installing scanner software and Silverfast, so I cannot say whether it would have worked without Silverfast or not. I have only scanned one slide from Elements so I am not in a position to say whether I would use this in preference to Silverfast or not.

My requirements for a scanner were for 35mm slides only. There is a holder for 35mm negatives supplied but I do not have use for this - only slides and I cannot comment on scanner performance when using negatives.

I have been using the Plustek 8200i scanner for three days now. At first after installing the software the scanner worked fine and I was impressed with the Silverfast software, it is quite powerful and comprehensive. After a while the Silverfast program would not run a full scan and I eventually reinstalled the software to be able to scan within Silverfast. This happened 3 or 4 times and I was about to give up when I decided to click on the Workflow Pilot button which enabled me to scan again. When I pressed the button to get back to the main program everything worked fine again. So I guess that I have stumbled on a bug within the program. Otherwise the program is extremely good and I have already scanned about 90 slides at 3600 dpi with great results. The scanner seems to be quite well made but is fiddly to align the film adaptor properly within the scanner. Overall the quality of the scan is very good and better than any flatbed scanner I have used so overall I can recommend it.

The scanner is solid and appears well built. It arrived with a European plug so I had to hunt down an adapter before I could get going. It produces good scans but it can take a minute or two for each negative depending on the size of image required. This has made me be more selective over which negs I scan (cuts the clutter!). The resultant images can be clear and sharp.
The software is frustrating. I had no problem connecting to my iMac but understanding SilverFast is difficult and not intuitive. After much trial and error I have found a way of working with it but still don't fully understand the work flow. The manual is only a few pages and small video 'tutorials' are provided for each function (gradation, contrast, colour, dust removal etc). The software can manipulate images comprehensively to enhance or otherwise. Dust and scratches cannot be removed from B+W negatives and I find this a major shortcoming not made clear in the manuals. I am left to remove this manually with iPhoto; effective but time consuming.
