I read a review, but don't recall where, that stated that the actual performance of the scanner was less than these specs state, ang gave a real equivilent of a 7 MP image. I have not tries slide scans yet, so I cannot comment as to the accuracy of that statement. Other reviews were more favorable.

You will note I misquoted some of the specs from memory as you can scan twice the number of slides at once than I had said.
