3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate - "You get what you pay for", 14 Dec 2009
This review is from: Plustek SmartPhoto F50 Compact 1800 DPI Film Scanner (Electronics)
Having a number of slides to scan before they faded I got this machine after doing some comparisons. As they say, "You get what you pay for". The output is satisfactory, you can manipulate the image a bit at the scanning stage, and it comes bundled with a nice little photo package. But it's not exactly quality workmanship. I don't object that it's light, but am less happy at the way it won't connect to the computer unless the lead is angled just-so, and the fact that inserting the rack of slides is sometimes easy and sometimes not (and, because of the insubstantial feel, I'm scared of pushing too hard so have had to evolve a routine of "take it out, try again, if that doesn't work, try the other side".) If you don't have too many slides to scan then it'll do the job - if you have a lot you might consider something a bit better.
