Claire, I had excellent luck with my unit; it cost something like $90, I believe. Current drawback--it only runs on XP machines. It came with a four-frame holder for slides and works very simply and easily. The image captures are terrific.

This is more to encourage you to go ahead...as I say, mine is a bit past it's sell-by date!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

I have several hundred 35mm slides (snapshots taken mainly in the 1970s and '80s) that I want to convert to digitized images--just to preserve the family photos. I'm considering sending the slides off to a service to have them done rather than purchase a scanner to convert them myself. I'd appreciate any advice, recommendations, pointers from others who have used such services. Feel free to respond privately.

Many thanks, in advance.
