Have any of you used one of these inexpensive negative/slide scanners? This is the model by Brookstone. Brookstone scanner

If so, did you get a fairly decent quality scan?

I used to have the HP slide and negative scanner S20xi negative/slide scanner which worked quite well for a long time. However it quit working and wasn't compatible with newer computer operating systems (and the last I checked, wasn't supported by HP any longer).

Usually around Christmas I see these cheap scanners and was wondering if they do a decent job. I realize they are not going to be nearly as good as the drum scanners, but they aren't thousands of dollars either. I would like to be able to scan old slides and negatives with decent enough quality to make prints.

Thanks in advance!

Me, too! I was happy to see your post as I'm hoping for a review or some tips. I have one new-in-box but haven't tried it yet. Not telling how many months ago I bought it, either!
