That is where I started looking as well. As I researched, I realized everything in that price range would be total crap. I actually had an HP PhotoSmart scanner many years ago... and learned that it is nearly impossible to clean slides well enough to not make them look horrible.I'm looking for a reliable scanner that will scan slides, price range $100-$400. Any recommendations?
Likely a good choice on a budget. I used 2 V500s and a V700 for a slide project last year. At the time, the old Nikon's were still 2k used, so no way.
