Fair value and does the job but a with a few issues


Nice little unit which enabled me too digitise a couple of hundred slides quite quickly. The auto loader did jam occasionally and the software would freeze and need re-booting when the autoloader was removed to clear the jam. Note that plastic mounted...

Software would not work at all on PC and only occasionally on a laptop. Clumsy in operation and a real disappointment.

ION Slides Forever


Brilliant bit of kit. Easy to set up and then one click on a slide and the digital version is done. Very fast way of converting all my old slides into digital format.

Great produt for a very good price, cheaper than anywhere else I found


This is a great product and does exactly what is should. I admit the slides I am transferring were very good quality but slides from over 40 years ago are transferring really well. Setup was very easy on both a Mac and Windows PC. The hopper feed is a...
