    There were many slides taken by members of my family and also my husband's family. We didn't have any way of knowing which ones to keep or discard. Now we have all the info we need and plan on scanning them into the computer.

    It really saved me a lot of time looking at the slides first before scanning and then having to delete them later.

    I definitely would recommend this product to anyone who is thinking of doing the same thing I did. It saved me a lot of time and money, as I didn't have to go and purchase any high priced ticket item to look at the slides.

    The first one I got arrived broken and I had to take it in. It was immediately replaced and this one is so easy to use. It lights up clearly and does not get hot. So I can sit and look at my precious memories to my heart's content.

      Needed a cheap viewer to review old slides before selecting them for digitizing. It works, but very small view size, Cannot load more than single slides. and have to hold slide and light switch on at all times.It works but probably not worth the price sold at.

                This is perfect for viewing old slides if you don't have a projector. I can go through a box of slides pretty fast to chose the ones I want to scan into my computer.

                The old model has a stand not included on this new one, although there is a place for one. So I took the stand off the old model and put it on my new one. Perfect!

                          Easy to use. Nice bright viewing light. Lightweight, small. Opted to use batteries (two AA) versus plug/transformer. Only disadvantage is the requirement to load slides individually/by hand.

                                  It took me hours to get it to work, and when I finally was able to get it to light up, it is very inconsistent. The price was right so I will keep it, but it will be pretty frustrating as I view our many slides.

                                    As president of our local Historical Society and in possession of a great deal of slides that we know not what they are - this little viewer fits our needs. Now, anyone in our group can pop a slide in the slot and take a quick look to see what was photographed. And since space is an issue for us too, the size is perfect!
                                    And so is the price!

                                                        Using to view old slides and put in book with description of each. The viewer is great for this project as we do not have a slide projector. Very easy to use.

                                                              This is a solid, compact product and works well.
                                                              The fact that it has an optional transformer is a plus so that you don't always have to rely on batteries.
                                                              Unfortunately the slide does not "click" into it and the person must continually press down on the slide for the light to remain on. That could be a bit inconvenient but for the price I am happy with this product.
