    I read the following article:

    That's a hell of a scanner for the price!

    Any thoughts?

    Whoa, that's gotta be a misprint. It must be $1999 or maybe $1199.

    If not they're gonna fly off the shelves.

    I looked on the website, and it indeed is 200 bucks. The question is, should I purchase it? I'm definitely interested at that price!

    Well, if it works as well as the review says, it's a hell of a deal. If it doesn't, you can always sell it on ebay.

    And I checked it out also. several places have it for $199. Amazing!

    Well folks... I got one from http:www.tigerdirect.com, for about $190 plus shipping. Can't wait to get it and will post a review of it. But from what I read, this scanner is pretty awesome.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but I almost hope it doesn't work.

    If it does then I'll have to get one! :lol:

    Bloody hell! That's cheap! I wonder if it's any better than the scans from my all-in-one Epson RX500...

    Definitely update us on that scanner, Mitica. I'm bouncing either that one or the Minolta Dual Scan III in my head. Maybe you could even post some test scans...pleeeeease? :p

    according to kodak


    The highest resolution level (2048 x 3072 pixels) captures all the image data 35 mm film has to offer


    so will a 7200 scanner pickup film grain only?
