ION's Slides Forever is a slide and film scanner for a PC or Mac computer. This compact device allows you to digitalise standard 35mm slides and film to your computer via USB. Your hard-copy memories are processed at great speeds and in high quality. The Slides Forever works at 1 to 2 slides per second with top-quality optics. The digitalised scans have a resolution of 5 megapixels (about 2600 x 1700 pixels).

Using the Slides Forever

The Slides Forever is incredibly easy to use, simply connect its USB cable to your PC or Mac, there's no need to install added drivers. The included software helps you to transfer the images to your computer quickly and easily and edit them afterwards. Naturally, the digitised pictures can also be opened by any other image-related software. What's more, this ION product's automatic light and colour balance will have done most of the editing for you. This is an essential device for those who want their slides and film to last forever.

This device is easy to use and the scanning process works well but there are a couple of disappointing problems. Firstly, the manual slider of the rapid feeder does not move slides accurately under the lens, so that one has to take the feeder out of the reader and re-position the slide. This is a nuisance which means that the speed of operation is vastly reduced. Secondly the slides look OK in the preview window but when transferred to the PC the color quality is poor; there is a pink cast to the picture which cannot be removed without a lot of 'Photoshopping', meaning, I suppose, that the white balance is inaccurate. Black/white reproduction is fine, but that's a bit out of date in 2015! Only two cheers I'm afraid - I guess one gets what one pays for .......
