    Pacific Image PowerSlide X reviews

    PowerSlide X Automated 35mm Slide Scanner is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great slide scanner Having the ability to automate slide scanning is great.� This unit does a solid job of scanning and the output is very good. The quality of the unit is very high and it works very well. The interface software is not as intuitive as it could be, but overall it is not too hard to get it working correctly if you follow the well written instructions.� Knowing that I am purchasing from Australia, I was disappointed that the power supply did not come with the appropriate slide on adapter.� Dealing with the B&H is a first class experience and their staff were very helpful.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Concept, Horrible Execution! First off, props to B&H for their impeccable customer service and their fast attention to what is clearly a defective product.� I first bought this scanner in January for a massive job -- scanning some 50K images that I need digitized.� The first machine worked fine until about the 2,000th slide, then it started producing images with streaks of pixellation.� I returned it and got a second machine, which had a defective feeder arm, rendering every 5th slide into just a "sliver" of a scanned image.� Returned that one for a third machine, which after another 2K slides, started doing the "sliver" thing.� Now, on my 4th machine, I am experiencing the same feeder arm issues.� Incredibly frustrating!� I've looked high and low for something comparable as returning these machines is getting to be a major hassle for both me and B&H.� I reached out to Pacific Image directly and they suggested I tug on the feeder arm which did absolutely no good at all.� Clearly, there is a defect in manufacturing here.� When the machine works, it produces great images but it is clearly not designed for big jobs.� Looks like I will have to return machine four and hope that number five is the lucky one that can do this job.� So, buyer beware!� Hopefully Pacific Image will read this and tend to the issue with the feeder arm.� Otherwise, best to wait until another company makes a slide scanner that can do automated scanning of multiple images.� See attached image of a "sliver" scan.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very high quality scanned image After some struggle, I am totally satisfied with all aspects of the Pacific Image Powerslide X. �The quality of the scans is highly adjustable.� The scanned image can be saved in jpg or tif.� There are many settings for optional methods of improving the scan.� One should experiment with all the choices before committing to a batch.� Slides go into a tray with a capacity of 50 slides.� One specifies the number of slides in the tray, the naming convention that one wants to adopt for each scan, the settings, positions the tray, and the machine processes them. � To reach this level, I had a number of difficulties which have been resolved.� To my surprise the questions I asked the B&H person were not answered adequately, and there was no attempt by that person or the person following up to solve my questions (where was the pdf of the manual—now on the web site), how to get additional trays, what is the speed of scanning). � Once the scanner was installed, I had a major problem.� After scanning each slide, I would be presented with an error message and have to press the enter key to continue to the next slide.� I called the Pacific Image technical support number and followed up with a detailed description of the error message.� I finally made contact with the technical services person and she sent me a replacement ‘DD6000.dll’ �file for their software running on my Windows 7 Professional operating system. That solved the problem. � Upon reading the user manual, I saw the specifications of replacement trays that I could use in the machine.� I decided it would be wise to have one tray being processed and fill another in anticipation.� B&H (at the time) showed no listing for the replacement tray and I had to resort to Adorama to get the replacement. � There is some art in positioning the slide tray to be fed into the scanner.� The best I can suggest is to close the lever that moves a slide from the tray into the scanner.� Then move the tray into position against the closed lever.� Then instruct the scanner to begin. � Remember that after the slide is scanned, it must be inverted in your image processing program (like Photoshop) before processing it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Serious Scanner Using the Lasersoft Scanning Software Out of the box the setup was quick with no issues. The slide magazine works well with no issues. The software that comes with the machine gives a good scan, probably 75% of what I can get with my Nikon Supercoolscan 5000 ED, using Silverfast scanning software. When the Silverfast software is ready for the PowerSlide X, I suspect that I will get close to 95% of what I can do with the Canon scanner. And, I can set it up and let it go during which I can work on other tasks.� I have scanned a lot of slides on my Nikon scanner, one slide at a time, at the expense of large quantities of time. With the PowerSlide X, I expect to get nearly the same results only as a batch scanner freeing my time for other tasks. The workflow with the PowerSlide X will involve a batch scan of 50 similar slides. Once the images are digitized, I will touch up those, in Photoshop, that need a little extra to come up to par. I am looking forward to a huge savings in my time. The Lasersoft software that can be purchased for this scanner is not inexpensive but is well worth the $500. Using the Lasersoft scanning software with a scanner like the PowerSlide X will give you the best possible results. I highly recommend both if you want the ultimate in scan quality from your slides.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from still working out how it works The 50 slide tray with auto feed is awesome. I upgraded from a single slide unit. load the tray set the features you want on the slide copies and walk away. I've done several trays so far and have no complaints.
