"Getting the Pro Version is best money I ever spent!"

October 19, 2010  |  By Thurletta

 |  Version: VueScan 8.6.63

Pros

Allows use of old UMAX scanners for Macs. Mine died and was replaced with an HP 8500 Premiere all-in-one. VueScan corrects a problem that makes letter-size 8500 scans come out as 35" x 45" (I kid you not). Lifetime updates provided with Pro version.

Cons

Absolutely nothing. It is perfect!

"Best value software I have ever used"

October 17, 2010  |  By igamogam

 |  Version: VueScan 8.6.63

Pros

Provides scanner support unlike any other program, great support, constant updates and

Cons

Slightly unusual interface.

Summary

This program has allowed me to scan images for myself and other people using scanners that are no longer supported or just plain didn't work with the manufacturers OWN drivers. Indispensable!

"If you have a scanner you should consider VueScan."

October 12, 2010  |  By gnunnery

 |  Version: VueScan 8.6.63

Pros

It works with many, many scanners. and has excellent control features. The developer is very responsive to questions and suggestions. If your scanner is supported you can't go wrong.

Cons

This is not truly a negative, but it is updated it seems like weekly as support for new scanners is added plus tweaks. Very nice that it is so actively maintained, but a monthly cycle might be preferred unless a major gremin is being squashed.

Summary

Excellent functionality. Actively developed and supported. Recommended.

"The Best out there....hands down!"

October 12, 2010  |  By cal411dg

 |  Version: VueScan 8.6.63

Pros

Easy to use but will do so much more that I have plenty of room to grow with it! Excellent software!!

Cons

...won't make dinner or do the laundry!!

Summary

Of the very few times I have any issues with VueScan, a quick email to Mr. Hamrick and a solution is sent back...often withing hours!! Best customer service of any type I have ever dealt with!!

"Puts the others in the shade."

October 12, 2010  |  By grahamlestergeorge_dotmac

 |  Version: VueScan 8.6.63

Pros

Gives excellent results even from my 10 year old HP flatbed. Plus the degree of control it gives me over my neg/slide scanner is phenomenal.

Cons

Hangs and crashes on my Mac intel 24 inch iMac too often which is annoying and slow down work flow. Would be good to be able to name files more easily at the point of saving.

Summary

Despite its few minor flaws,there's nothing else out there to beat it. It does what it says on the tin, and the updating and after sales from Mr Hamrick is legendry

Updated on Oct 14, 2010

Oh and why only 4 stars? Well the star rating system is a bit of blunt instrument. 5 implies that perfection has been reached and nobody or nothing is perfect. A percentage rating would mean we could fine tune our assessments. I would give VueScan 95%
