  • Light on instruction material, Large footprint
  • This photo scanner works well and makes digitizing photos easy, thanks to the built-in and bundled software. It has a big footprint, but if you have a lot of photos, slides, and negatives to digitize, and space is not an issue, this is a good value for...
