We purchased the 21c Film And Slide Digital Converter originally to save a bunch of slides from past vacations. The 21c Film And Slide Digital Converter was easy enough to set up and install. I did notice you have to restart twice in order to get the drivers to respond correctly to the programming. Once the unit and the software was installed it perform flawllessly. The ARCSOFT PHOTO impression software is slightly confusing in its operation but within just a few minutes it's very easy to catch on too. In my first use of this unit I was to transfer a little over four hundred slides to digital format. I was afraid it might over heat with such use but since I have over forty-five thousand slides to convert I assumed it was best to put it to the test early on. The 21c Film And Slide Digital Converter performed awesomely not the slightest bit of heat or any problems of any kind. I am sure my particular use of this unit will indeed be considered abuse, but then I usally abuse everything I buy. I have really enjoyed my new little slide scanner, and I will probably continue to abuse it. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone wishing to convert slides to digital format. The 21c Film And Slide Digital Converter is a really great product at a reasonable price and it's very easy to use.
