That, in a word, describes my reaction to this scanner. One of the most important features for me was speed. I wanted a scanner that was fast, yet still high quality. This scanner is super-fast! One of the coolest features for me was scanning negatives. I tested scanning a negative at 3200 dpi (the highest resolution) and it took approx 1 min, 50 seconds. The resulting image was an 11 MB jpeg that was 4600x3000 pixels. I also tested the same negative at 1600 dpi which took about 55 seconds and resulted in a 2300x1500 pixel image. At first, I was nervous about not having an off switch, but I discovered a setting where you can tell it to turn off the lamp after X number of minutes. It's a bit slow when switching between scanning negatives and scanning everything else (it has to adjust the lamp since the negatives requies a backlight in the cover). But that's about the only negative thing I could think of. This is an incredible scanner for the price. Buy it, you won't be disappointed!!!
