    I have purchased and used this machine. It was incredibly difficult to keep the internal light source free of dust and as it's surface is quite close to the slide or film negative by 1-2mm therefore any dust settled on this surface is also in focus when the image is scanned. I would have preferred the light source to have been further away from the slide to prevent this. The dust shows up as a small black spot or line and affects areas of light sky or an area of pale colour for a positive colour slide.
    However the machine did work and the colours were true to the slides. The cartridge to insert the slides in was practical and it enabled a soft brush and or lens blower to remove any dust from the actual slide just prior to insertion in the machine. Storing the images on to a SD card was straightforward and these could easily be accessed or transferred to a computer.

    I feel that I must tell everybody what a good scanner this is. I have thousands of old colour slides and colour negatives. I have always wanted to scan these so that I can add them to my digital photo collection and preserve them for future generations. Other scanners that I have used will take about a minute per slide to scan. This scanner takes about 5 seconds to scan and save. The quality of the scanned image depends on the quality of the original slide or negative. Where the original negative is of high quality the scanned image is of the same quality as a modern 3mp digital camera. As stated in other reviews the instruction booklet is poor. All this means is that it takes 2 minutes to work out how to use the scanner instead of 1 minute. The operation of the scanner is very simple. The method of saving scanned images to an SD card (not supplied) is good because you can use the scanner without connecting to the computer.

    I had been looking for a slide and film scanner for some time and had been put off by some of the reviews for cheaper items. I ordered the Agfa AFS2 Standalone Scanner and it arrived yesterday.

    I very quickly unpacked the scanner and was pleased with its appearance and feel - it seems to be sturdier than some that I have seen. Within a short time I had scanned in almost whole 120 slide magazine. The scan is very quick and the slide holder takes four slides.

    The slides that I scanned were about forty years old and most required a little 'freshening up' in a photo editor but I am well pleased with the results so far.

    Being a standalone unit, you don't need a computer to scan your slides/films - it stores your results on an SD card, which I think is quite a useful feature.

    Early days yet, but I am very happy with my choice of this scanner, it suits my purposes well at a reasonable cost.

    As we had a number of photo's of our children on slides the idea of this sort of product appealed to us to enable us to relive long forgotten memories. It is simple to use and the quality of the images owes as much to the equipment available 30-40 years ago as anything else. We also feel that the slides had degenerated over time. The images we are able to show on photo frames vary from very good to not so good. But the pleasure of seeing pictures that would otherwise continue to deteriorate in the loft outweighs any negative aspect. The grandchildren have enjoyed seeing pictures of their parents as babies and toddlers. Also to compare grandchildren to their parent has been interesting. We feel the product was worth the money we paid and are very satisfied with it.

    With something like ten thousand slides dating back to the nineteen sixties to convert to digital, I wanted something that would be quick and easy to use whilst also giving good resolution. The instruction book could be clearer, but once you have mastered the few simple actions required, it is possible to process large numbers of slides in a relatively short time. I consider the product excellent value for money.

    I have transferred 3500 transparencies to my computer, it works, it takes about an hour to do(say) 100, the first 1000 created one file. I realised my mistake, the remainder I put into files of between 36 an 100, depending on holiday grouping
