OK, folks. I know this is the tail end of the sale but for all of those who've been asking "Is this compatible with my Mac/Windows machine?" should be able to answer two simple questions.
1. Can I somehow read an SD card on my computer i.e. do I have an adapter that I can insert the card from the scanner into. If you can, great! If you can't or don't understand the question, hmmmm....
2. Can my computer read/view .jpeg photos?
If you can say yes to both answers, then this scanner will work for you. If you really feel compelled to hook it up to a computer and scan, you're sort of missing the point of this product.
The point of this product is to basically free you from the computer and scanner and allow you to sit on the couch, grab a beer, scanner and a big stack of crappy photos you plan to embarrass your friends with and go to town while you watch some mindless reality tv, or game or whatever.
Concerned about quality? 300dpi should be plenty for your old photos. And if your photos are so outstanding, why are you scanning printed photos and not the negatives themselves? If you want something higher, check out the Pandigital scanners. They have an older 4x6 one that does 600dpi and a newer one that does 600dpi up to 8.5x11. Runs $99 on Amazon with really good reviews.
Sure, we all have high hopes of digging out our photos and doing archival scans of them but the reality of it is that they take a ton of work to go through and do. Scanning negatives leaves you with the job of going back through and sorting the good from the bad. Scanning photos will allow you to pick and choose right away those that are scan-worthy.
