Good Product - Being Used in Dental Practice

by Tim on 9/25/2007

This scanner was purchased to scan x-rays in a dental office. It has a transparency adapter which is built in light in scanner lid that provides backlight for x-rays, transparencies, and slides. It is easy to use, provides good quality images, and has been reliable so far (I've only had it for a few weeks, but we use it a lot). I have it hooked up to a new IMac on which it was an easy install. The software that comes with the scanner is known as SilverFast, and it is actually very user friendly to the point that I prefer it over Adobe Elements for acquiring images. It came with a number of templates to lay on the scanner bed to use for different size objects, films, or slides. I actually used the slide template to scan and duplicate some 20 year old slides from an old record with very nice results. It has done well with x-rays and slides in a business/dental office environment where quality reproduction of images is essential. I'm very pleased with this product, and I remember when this item would have cost about 10 to 15 times the price and not done nearly as much.
