3 out of 5 stars   Good, but could have been great
March 21, 2016
Review submitted for Pacific Image PowerSlide 5000 CCD Slides Scanner with 5000dpi Resolution (PACIMGPS5000)
Pros: Can produce a good scan once you learn the ropes.
Cons: There's a steep learning curve.
Other Comments: The software that comes with the PS 5000 is a generic product. There are some screens that just don't apply, it's not well organized, and there's no help. There are still some screens I don't understand. The manual is just a few small, poorly reproduced B&W pages. Some show how to load magazines that aren't made any more. On the plus side tech support is very helpful and usually quick to respond. User friendly software and a good manual would have been a vast improvement for this scanner. Just a good manual would have helped a lot. There are two magazines still made for it. The black "compact" magazine can only be used when slides are thin enough to fall out on their own. I didn't know this and wrecked my first scanner when a slide jammed. After a month trying to get #2 to work PIE engineers determined that it had a bad IR channel. Another 2 week round trip to California. #3 wouldn't work until tech support explained that it must be connected to a USB 2.0 port on the back of the computer. No hubs & no USB 3.0. Expect to spend some time with each batch of slides to determine which of the many software settings work best. I've found only the "Magic Touch" dust removal is needed for Ektachrome. For Kodachrome that plus "Auto Balance" seems to work. Dust removal works well for both Ektachrome and Kodachrome. The scanner has problems with slot #1 on the 50 slot magazine. Sometimes it just skips it and starts with slot 2. Tech support says they don't know why some do that. Your scan will never be better than the original slide. If you have a Kodachrome 25 slide that was shot with sharp focus in bright sun you'll get a nice scan. If you have an Ektachrome slide or worse yet a brand X slide that was underexposed and out of focus you'll be disappointed. Back when we all shot slides autofocus was only a dream and auto exposure didn't always work as well as we would have liked. When I bought this scanner I dreamed of turning my closet full of carousels into a few archive boxes and lots of nice digital images. After two months I'm finally starting to get there. Would I recommend this to a friend? Only if I had a chance to spend some time with them to show what I've learned and give them my notes.

4 out of 5 stars   Improvement over previous models
By Laocoon on April 26, 2015
Review submitted for Pacific Image PowerSlide 5000 CCD Slides Scanner with 5000dpi Resolution (PACIMGPS5000)
Pros: Improved over 3650 model. Slots in the slide tray are slightly wider, which prevents the frequent jamming. Equivalent results with the straight tray (provided) or the circular tray (optional).
Cons: Does jam sometimes, especially with older slide mounts that are a little puffed up from moisture and time. Software provided isn't the easiest to use, requires a brief learning curve.
Other Comments: You need this if you're doing a lot of slides!

4 out of 5 stars   Machine seems solid and works as said.

Review submitted for Pacific Image PrimeFilm 7250uPro3 for Windows and Mac (PACIMG7250PRO3)
Pros: Great Overall Quality, Easy To Use, Accurate Colors, Easy Setup, Sharp Tones & Colors
Cons: Noisy
Other Comments: Had used PrimeFilm 3650U scanner before this one, was happy with the scan results, so when the time and money came, I purchased this 7250U scanner, I like the autofeed film handling and even better image depth. Haven't used the 7200 DPI setting yet as no need, 3600 is more than satisfactory for 8X10 prints.

Pros: Great Overall Quality, Accurate Colors, Easy Setup, Easy To Use
Cons:
Other Comments: I use it to transfer roughly 2000 old slides to CD. It would cost a fortune to have this done at a specialized store. Not hard to do yourself and it's fun.

3 out of 5 stars   PrimeFilm 7250 Scanner flaw
By Al on February 06, 2013
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Pacific Image PrimeFilm 7250uPro3 for Windows and Mac (PACIMG7250PRO3)
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy Setup
Cons:
Other Comments: Has one major flaw. I purchased the product mostly to scan 35mm slides. Each slide must be physically pushed in and held during the lengthy scan or PrimeFilm doesn't read the slide being there. I rigged up a piece of PVC and rubber bands to hold the slide in during the scan. This flaw is mentioned in the user's manual "some slides mounts are thin and will require slight pressure for it to register" It's a lot more than slight pressure on the one I purchased. It takes two rubber bands wrapped around the scanner to hold the PVC with enough pressure for the slide to register.
