Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Small, light, fast.
Bad points:
Bad build quality, screwed up one of my SD cards when a metal from inside was sticking up into it!
needs constant cleaning, otherwise dirt and glue from pictures gets stuck on the sensor creating nasty lines on the scans.

Good points:
The Concept is good
Bad points:
The scans all have white lines on them and they are not usable. I've cleaned it numerous times but to no avail. I might have to send it back.

Janette, Rossendale

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant little compact photo scanner, very fast and simple to use. Very good at scanning the smaller old-style photo booth pictures too, and it re-sizes these to the size of all the other prints scanned when uploaded to the pc.
Bad points:
Major bad point is that it really will only scan a photo with the maximum size of 6x4 inches, I have quite a few larger prints in my collection that I had to cut down to size if I wanted to digitise them.

Jason,

Good points:
Small, fast and simple to use. A brilliant way to digitise your old photos. Just make sure to know it's limitations.
Bad points:
Quality of scanned pictures isn't great. Sometimes get black lines on leading edge of photo (to do with how the scanner crops photos) and make sure to clean your scanner (using supplied kit) after every 100 or so photos. Dust on the scanner can give white lines across the scanned photo and can ruin a whole batch!

Chris, Wales

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fast, is the best selling point. Compact design, very portable and no need for PC or laptop while scanning.
Bad points:
Limited to 6 x 4 maximum, but thats not a fault, just my greed.
Lines appear on some photos, then need photoshop adjustment, not a big issue
Does not like Polaroids with shiny backs, need to put a piece of paper as backing when scanning

John, Huddersfield

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent, quick to set up, you don't need the disc that comes with it, your computor just detects it as a storage device. Quick to use, I scanned about 100 photos in half an hour. Don't worry if your old photos are odd sizes ( as long as they are no more than 6x4 ) it centres them. Ideal for face book. You need your own memory card for it to work as far as I can make out, but hey, I only skimmed thro the instructions. ACE !
Bad points:
People keep asking if they can borrow it. NO.
