I just got my Costo sold unit yesterday and so far am very pleased with the results of the scans and the value for the price. very simple to scan the items and do basic exposure and color balance in the unit. a slide creates about a 2.5 Meg JPEG. once I had scanned the pictures in I connected via usb to a windows 7 PC and was able to easily copy the files off. Zooming in on the results seems to indicate a very true transfer of the original image. Would I recommend at this price, Hell Yes.
