Hmmm ... It is possible to get digital images of a reasonable quality using this scanner but there are a few things to watch out for.
Firstly, I was unable to connect it to a computer despite the fact that it has a USB connection. It takes too much current and I don't think it declares itself as a high current device to the computer. My systems were unable to recognize it, that is both Windows XP and Windows 7 failed to connect to it properly and recognize it as a scanner. It comes with a power supply with a German plug and a British adapter, you plug the USB cable into this. The PSU is rated at 1 amp at 5 volts.
Secondly, the light is dim, thus your slides have a dark appearance unless you turn the light up to full brightness.
Thirdly, it crops the image around the edges, but then most slide scanners do this to some extent.
Fourth, it is not compatible with SD cards above 2Gb. There was a change in the standard for SD cards to accommodate higher capacities so you have to get an old (2Gb or less) SD card to use with this scanner. If you can still get hold of one then this is not a problem, a 1Gb card can hold an awful lot of pictures.
So it is possible to get reasonable quality pictures from this device but you have to use it as a standalone scanner with an old SD card and with the brightness and resolution turned up to maximum and accept the fact that the edges will be trimmed.
