"Very well supported"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I'm amazed by how much better the scan quality is using Silverfast AI compared with Microtek's scan software for its i900 scanner. Scanning for professional results is work but once one learns Silverfast it does the job beautifully. I'm very appreciative for its help videos. What especially impresses me is how well this software is being supported and improved by the developer. This is a first-rate software developer and superior scanning software.

"Good but awkward"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I own SilverFast and Vuescan. SilverFast works better with black-and-white negatives but every time I try it with colour, I end up using Vuescan, because Vuescan does an excellent job with colour and is easier to control. SilverFast's commands are labelled in hieroglyphics and buried in modal dialog boxes.

"Still has problems but is very powerful"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have both Silverfast and Vuescan. Silverfast has more bells and whistles and you can control anything you choose as long as you spend an enormous amount of time to learn it. For me the HUGE problem with this application is it leaves the scanner lamp on, forever. Even after you quit the application the $#%@ scanner lamp is shining brightly. This is using a Microtek 8700 via firewire. I need to turn Vuescan on to turn off the lamp since I prefer to leave the scanner powered up. For the vast majority of my work Vuescan works just fine and their support is far superior. There are a number of, essentially professional prepress, high end scan processing things that only Silverfast can do but I rarely need them. If that is your gig well you are going to need Silverfast. Normally I don't so I use Vuescan most of the time. If you have an inexpensive scanner I would strongly recommend Vuescan as it is far easier to use, if you are a professional you will probably use Silverfast or both.
