  • newegg Ease of Operation — Single button SmartPhoto P60 is a fantastic photo scanner for the elderly people or for those people who have absolutely no idea about the digital world. Its one button design makes it absolutely easy to scan the paper photographs and convert those into digital formats. There is no warm up time for the scanner. Secondly, there is again no software required. It uses the existing Microsoft windows photo sharing and viewing software. The user interface of the scanner is a small pop up window with only a little to choose from, which even a very little computer literate person can easily handle. On top of all these easy functionalities, the scanner uses your PC power to run. So, connect it to your PC or laptop through the USB interface and go on scanning as many snaps as possible. Only thing you need to remember is to check the continuous scan box of the user interface. The Palm size A6 photo scanner P60 turns your paper photos into digital JPEG format in minutes and saves those in a predefined location.
  • newegg Organizes Paper Photos Plustek SmartPhoto P60 helps our ecology by not allowing the paper photos to become multiple copies and shared among the friends or relatives, as it is sternly opposite to paper use. Secondly, it helps the photos to be kept organized in a repository for the future use. In case of most of the paper photos, those become moth-eaten, discolored or even dog eared, if kept on the display box or hung from the walls. Even, in some cases, the owners of the photographs forget the photographs and their locations. On the other hand, P60 can actually make all the photo-preservation organized. As and when you require any photo, just key in the index on the search engine the photograph can be out for your use.
  • newegg Scan Paper Photos and upload to the Web-Album Not only preserving photographs is easy, but also in seconds, you can upload your digital photos onto your web photo-album then and there only. You can scan the photo-graphs in a predefined resolution, size, color and format so that you can use it for Facebook, Orkut, MSN, Flickr, etc. Secondly, before any important event of your friends and relatives life including marriage and birthdays, you can actually surprise them with the age old photographs, which they might have forgotten.

3 out of 5 eggsEasy, Effective, Imperfect

Pros: Small, Quick, Easy, Works, Cheap, USB powered (draws 400mA).

Cons: Unfortunately there are several cons. The calibration function doesn't work, all photos are slightly distorted. The results are stretched and make everyone look fat. The scanning element isn't very high quality. Scans of photos taken on a bright sunny day come out looking drab and bland (over-saturated?). The rotation algorithm frequently misfires and twists an image quite severely. For me worst of all is that it cuts off about 3/16" of an inch from the long sides of the photos, top an bottom. It is limited to a maximum scan size of a 4x6 photo: it will not scan a panorama photo (remember Kodak Advantix?).

Other Thoughts: I've only had experience with flatbed photo scanners. As harsh as the cons I've listed are I still like this thing, it's quick, easy and I can digitize photos from a laptop while on the go visiting family. I was really hoping to be able to scan long receipts with this; the 4x6 limitation is very aggravating: I just don't see the reason for it. Someday I hope to find a document and photo scanner that I will fall in love with; this definitely isn't it, but for the cost and convenience of it - it's pretty good.

4 out of 5 eggsDon't trust the Plustek USB cable in the box

Pros: For Windows 7 64bit I used the updated driver from the manufacturer's website which installed very easy. Once I tossed the Plustek junk USB cable out and had a good workable USB cable installed in its place the setup was simple. Open the Plustek software and setting the resolution higher to 600dpi max is step one. The brightness, contrast and gamma correction adjustments work effectively and cleaning the lens with the supplied cleaner pad works well. My scans are a little grainy owing the low 600dpi but I'll live with it, I'm digitizing our family photo albums and this scanner works quite well for the job intended. If this scanner would have been 1200dpi it would be awesome.

Cons: The Plustek cable is defective. I used an old spare I had in reserve and everything worked fine after changing out the cable. There was some dust on the scanner lens causing a streak through the first picture but after one cleaning the streak was gone. It won't scan a 4.25" x 11" if you are thinking about folding an 8.5 x 11 letter in half to scan both sides and stitching it back together in Photoshop. That would have been a great feature to add in.

Other Thoughts: I also tried this scanner on a laptop XP 32 bit and it worked fine. I am amazed at how small this scanner is, it looks like something Ken & Barbie would use in their dollhouse so for your traveling setup this thing is perfect... it's lightweight and super compact.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's 600dpi not 300dpi.

Pros: Very good image quality. It is actually a 600dpi not a 300dpi as advertised . Easy to connect and operate.

Cons: For some reason after about 30 scans, the image would not copy. I had to restart my computer to start scanning again. Also the the image frame would slip for no apparent reason, and it often took several tries to get an image lined up properly. There is a small learning curve on how to feed the photo.

Other Thoughts: For an scanner of small photos it does a good job and is worth the sale price of $59.99, but not $89.99. I would have given it a 5 star rating except for the photo frame changes.
