I bought this scanner two years ago, and all I can say really is it is the absolute best scanner I've ever owned, and I love it. The scans are always stunningly crisp and vibrant. The digital Ice feature does an amazing job picking up the colors on old photos, something you might be able to do yourself in post processing, but it does them well and instantly. It uses an LED based lighting bar rather than the old cathode types which means instant scans (no warm up time needed) and no bulb to break. The best feature is its negative/slide scanning ability.. The lid has the transparencies light built in, you just remove the normal scans plate, put your slides/negatives in the included adapters which lock on to the bed, close it, and go. The awesome thing is that the software can scan every thing all in one go, it scans every single slide/negative you put in in one pass then automatically breaks them up into individual files for you, makes it relatively fast to scan in a mass amount.
