very good all round14/10/2013 12:33:00
Overall pretty satisfied
very good - would recommend03/10/2013 12:32:00
very good - recommend
Fantastic idea for slides and negatives.01/10/2013 11:03:00
WOW what an amazingly useful bit of kit, tiny bit of brain power need to set it up. But once done stupidly easy to use and to upload to my laptop. Wonderful piece of equipment, well done to its inventor you are an utter genius. Thank you.
It does what I wanted it to do17/06/2013 14:15:00
It could do with a bit more information on how to get the TV set up working. But perhaps that's just me being old and not understanding what my telly can do. My great-Grandchild showed me.
Easy to use31/05/2013 12:20:00
Overall, just what we were looking for at a competitive price.
Arrived in good time but product rather disappointing01/05/2013 21:35:00
Colour saturated and focus often poor, seems to vary on content and brightness of slide image
Does what it says on the tin, with great results28/03/2013 10:23:00
SD card was faulty but was replaced very quickly
Thank you for taking the time to send us your review.
Great piece of kit easy to use27/03/2013 14:27:00
A good buy
Ridiculously easy to use!!31/12/2012 13:52:00
I would advise buying the extra slide holders if you have a lot of slides. Picture quality could be better but that maybe down to the old slides. Also it kept saying card protected when trying to scan, I had to take the card out and reinsert for it to work. Really good product for the money, especially if you have a lot of slides!!!
Thanks once again for a good, easy to use product05/12/2012 22:43:00
Very good product - no problem with it. Good service from mysmartbuy. Thank you.
1st class item that does the job.21/11/2012 07:42:00
A handy gadget that was despatched quickly. No complaints.
Very good.20/11/2012 19:47:00
Done over 1000 slides and negatives al look good on PC.
Change negatives to digital format20/11/2012 15:44:00
My experience of pretty well all modern gadgets and new tech is that they don't work or at least not as well as the impression given in the adverts. This is an exception - worked first time, doesn't need extra software or downloads and does exactly what it claims to do.
Gives very good results with slides.19/11/2012 08:54:00
Fast scanning can be operated when system has been set up. A very neat and well built piece of equipment.
Fast delivery. Product as described. Very satisfied16/11/2012 11:34:00
Satisfactory dealing with this company. Would use again.
Great little machine!15/11/2012 10:14:00
It has been so great to finally see all our old slides and negatives again - some of which have been sitting in a cupboard for forty years!
Compact machine to convert slides to SD card.14/11/2012 13:11:00
Great gadget for allowing slides a new lease of life - already recommended it to friends
I received the unit in good time. It will be a great help to me as I have about 2000 slides to scan!13/11/2012 14:22:00
I feel that I have netted a bargain, in saving £50. Even at the full price, it would have been worth it
Good, easily operated unit08/11/2012 10:44:00
Easy to use and all operations understandable
Good Product, insruction for use a little sketchy.06/11/2012 10:37:00
Value for money
Just as expected and easy to use.02/11/2012 15:15:00
Having read other reviews, no it is not a scanner but views and stores the slides to a card which can then be copied to a PC. Simples!
Quick and easy to use01/11/2012 19:13:00
Delivery was very quick and I immediately set about scanning all my old slides. I had done about 400 when the scanner switched itself off and refused to start up again. I contacted Mysmartbuy and was dealt with by a very friendly and helpful young lady who advised me to return the scanner ( at no cost to myself ) and a replacement would be sent out. This I did and about a week later a new one arrived. I have now used this to scan several hundred slides with no problems. Firstly. The scanner has exceeded all my expectations. It is easy to use and much quicker than I expected. Bearing in mind the age of the slides being scanned, the quality is good. I feel that I must be well in pocket already compared to taking the slides to the shop to get them done. Secondly. I must say how pleased I was with the response and service I got from Mysmartbuy. You only really know how good the supplier is when something goes wrong and I have to say that they were 1st class. And no I don't work for the company.
very easy to use25/10/2012 15:08:00
just what i wanted
Quick service and good product.24/10/2012 10:08:00
When I tried to order it over the phone the price was £89.95 so I declined. I then ordered it on-line for £59.95. Why was there such a difference?
Order dealt with efficiently. Excellent product.18/10/2012 10:37:00
Overall, a good, easy to use product
Good quality, Can't fault it for the price17/10/2012 10:13:00
Excellent device. Presently putting many hundreds of slides onto iPhoto where they will be seen much more often. What a pleasure!!
Bury St. Edmunds
Excellant, works really well.16/10/2012 17:10:00
I got what I paid for, if I had wanted better quality I would have paid much more.
Well made unit16/10/2012 11:28:00
Facilities not fully explored yet, but early results look good.
Took awhile to find product on your site. Product what was wanted.
MySmartBuy very professional, great item, many thanks.05/10/2012 20:17:00
Alot of items included. Good quality for the price, far cheaper than going to the photographers
Excellent scanner05/10/2012 12:16:00
Super-fast delivery, excellent packaging. Excellent to buy from.
still getting to grips with it - seems just the job24/09/2012 17:25:00
Seems to do whats advertised
Nice and simple piece of kit to use.18/09/2012 14:57:00
I have many hudreds of film strips to scan. I am using the Neostar Scanner to load these negs onto my PC so as to look at the images as I would a contact sheet. Those negs I require for printing I simply scan at a high resolution with my other negative scanner, which operates at a very slow speed!

Ideal product for slide transference29/07/2012 20:30:00
Seems like a good product and should save me loads of time and money. Very prompt response and good service from MySmartBuy
Enjoy using it11/07/2012 20:18:00
Delighted with it. Good value for money.
I was able to dispose of 10 bulky slide boxes on to one small memory card. Very easy to use.
excellent product just right for me03/07/2012 10:47:00
great service' and a good easy to use product
My pre-order enquiry was answered in good time, the product was very good and the delivery was much earlier than I expected.03/07/2012 10:37:00
A good experience.
Bit fiddly for large numbers of photos but did exactly what it said30/06/2012 11:37:00
Already looking at further Neostar purchase

Neostar film and slides scanner28/06/2012 13:00:00
A good purchase
Excellent product26/06/2012 16:15:00
Excellent quality, takes about 2 seconds per photo slide once mounted in the frame provided, frame holds 4 slides. Button provided to flip image if you accidentally mount slide upside down. Great way to get all those nostalgic slides onto your computer. I transferred over 2000 images from slides onto my PC over 3 days. Produces flawless images on 19 inch pc monitor and only slightly pixelated when hooked up to 40 inch TV via cable provided and some slides were 30 years old. Also works on digital photo frames.
Very pleased25/06/2012 15:07:00
The instructions are very basic and it took time to work out how to put the slides in the holder, so the pictures were not mirror imaged or upside down. Once I worked this out it is very simple to use and very quick. I am really pleased with the results this product gives.

Neostar Film & Slide Scanner31/05/2012 11:48:00
Although a delay in receipt of order, I was kept updated on delays. Very satisfied with everything and will certainly order anything else that I fancy!
transfer old slides to card.30/05/2012 15:14:00
Brilliant! Just what i needed. All old slides now transferred, up and running on phtoframe. Simple even for me at 65!
accurate and simple way of copying slides and negatives into digital format22/05/2012 10:48:00
Quick delivery up and running in minutes- first batch done the same evening.
It took some time to understand your guidebook on use of scanner but eventually with playing and going through all combinations we eventually got it to work, but not the film which we would appreciate the instructions on how to do film. It was not comprehensive enough and very short on detail. Not easy.
This product is easy to use and seems very good value for money.
EXCELLENT SCANNER.I HAVE HUNDREDS OF SLIDES YET TO SCAN.SO FAR I HAVE SCANNED OVER 300 WITH PERFECT RESULTS.I CAN THROUGHILLY RECCOMEND THIS UNIT.
THE RESULTS FAR EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS, MAINLY USED ON SLIDES FROM THE 1950 & 60's. BRILLIANT PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.
Good performance, good value, and useful not to need computer at time of copying.
Amazing gadget, which brought ancient negatives and slides back to life for fun and humourous viewing.
MY HUSBAND FOUND IT DIFFICULT TO USE AS HE DID NOT KNOW HOW MANY SLIDES HE HAD STORED
Excellent piece of kit. Easy to use and quick.
Easy to use scanner that does a brilliant job. Well worth the money to transfer slides that have been unseen for thirty years.Excellent piece of equipment.
Not to bad.recording value is not as good as I hoped it would be. This may be because the slides I have used are very old. I hope as I get nearer the newer ones this may improve
Simple but effective product; easy to use with good results.
First scanner received was faulty but was soon replaced although no refund on postage. The manual could be better but I soon worked things out and found the unit easy to use with only a second taken to scan each image. The prints from the SD card were of good quality for a 6x4 print
I have only used the scanner very briefly but so far I'm pleased with the results and the images it produced. Value for money seems to be good but depends on the item continuing to work well over a long period of time.
Good value for money
Does what it says on the box, easiest way of digitsing slides
Easy to use and does a good job on negatives.
The product easily produces electronic copies of slides etc when I eventually stumbled into how to work it (I must be dim!) My initial struggle to make it work almost led me to returning the device then suddenly everything was working for me.
The scanner seems to be good value, easy and quick to operate. However, the slide holder is quite awkward to open and close, and I have had to modify it. Maybe a single slide feed option would be better. Also, the instruction booklet could be clearer. Overall, I am pleased with the product. The clarity of the images is good for a device of this size and price.
Very pleased with Scanner, thank you for a quick service.
Item ok but I found instructions difficult to follow
Does what it says on the tin. Qhite good quality.
This is easy to use, and the result is good. Our slides are old slides, but I can improve them once I have downloaded them into Picassa.
I give this item 4 stars based on the scanner and deduct i point because I thiink that the instuctions could have been more helpful to a new user.
Instructions could be improved. Otherwise seems to do what it says.
kept informnedabout a delay with the order
Works very well transferring our many slides to our computer and then on to disc. Good value for money.
Scanner works no probems. I have 6000 slides to scan so it will take me some time!!
Product seems fine when you find out how to work it. Instructions are less than comprehensive
Seems OK, but need more time and experience to fully evaluate.
Did't realise transfering photographs could be so simple.
Does what it says on the box. Just what I wanted.
The copier produces very good copies of slides, I have not tried it on film. I like the fact that you do not need to worry about compatibility with a computer. The manual is useless, so at first you have to persevere and just try the various combinations of buttons.
It is easy to use with clear and precise instructions. I am very pleased to be able to transfer my slides and negatives on SD and my computer. I would highly recommend this scanner.
instuctions quite vague in parts ,due I think to the translation,once I sorted it quick and easy to use.
Really neat and useful device for bringing my old photo negatives up to date to save onto cd and snd to friends from years ago.
The converter was everything I expected. The Instruction book was a little poor though.
Very pleased with the results
Neat piece of kit, wished had spent extra money for the next one up. Works well
Very good value
Now working satisfactorily. Instructions on use could be more foolproof but perhaps that`s me.
Don't know how it works, but it does - must get on and view some more negatives !
The scanner worked well once I had spoken to your technical department for some clarification. Manual not very clear. For instance I didn't realise the scanner reverted to negatives every time it was switched off.
Performs well fit for purpose for most people with a box of old negatives and slides to transfer. view on TV then transfer to a PC later is good. Lens needed cleaning regularly and was a bit fiddly to clean. Good value for money.
Excellent product, even better that I had expected.
I found the instruction book inadequate. It took a deal of experimenting to understand how it works.
brill, have been able to transfer 1000+ Colour slides to S.D card and then onto Computer and to disc in just one week . great little device, well worth its money.
Excellent piece of equipment. Does what it says on the box. Selection of processes could be easier to access, but I suppose continued use will simplify this operation.
Works well but instruction booklet could be clearer
We have found it easy and quick to use, although it has taken a little while to work out the way through some menus. The results have been of good quality, except for some files which have been corrupted apparently on the SD card. However they were Ok when first looked at on the TV, so we don't think it was the fault of the scanner itself
Exactly what I wanted. No problems with colour reproduction. Very good product for the price
Produces good images on SD Card. User Manual very poor as learning all the features is very much a trial and error requirement.
Good value for money, arrived promptly
I copied slides and negatives some of which were about 50 years old and the results were excellent
Useful not having to have it connected to a computer in order to operate it. Definition is pretty good and autofocus works well, but auto colour occasionally gets it very wrong and produces a heavy colour cast, usually magenta.
Not allbells and whistles but exactly what I required for the job Iam doing
Does the job but manual incomplete - strange date attached to images - no obvious way to change this
Although there was a delay due to the item being out of stock I was kept informed.
Excellent value though technically not a scanner but a micro camera. On the face of it VFM.
It does what I expected - nothing special but good value for the price
Have used twice now and is proving to be just what I required. The manual could be more user-friendly though.
I am quite pleased with the scanner which I found easy to use once I had worked out the instructions which are not clear to understand. My only criticism is that slides which were taken with the subject in a vertical position were cropped due to the aperture size.
Excellent results, far better than I hope for. A large box of family holiday slides from the 60's is now safely stored on an SD card and memory stick. Veiwing now is so simple compared to the old days. Next job is an even bigger box of my own slides which have not been seen for years. I think that copying direct onto SD card is far simpler then using a computer as it is so easy to transfer to a laptop once scanned. Great value for money, 50 quid well spent. Thank you.
It took time to operate it profficiently. The driving instructions could be made more user friendly to counteract this. Otherwise it is a first class product.
Exactly as described in advert.
Easy to use.
An excellent device.
Product is easy to use with good results so far.
Hand book could be clearer
Very pleased with it, just what I wanted (I have 3 previously-purchased film scanners)
Anexcellent product which does what it says.The quality of copying is very good and looks the same as a normal jpeg.The instructions are anything but good. They are written in poor english and do not include some of the basic details necessary to use the product but i was able to guess what to do ! The instructions need to be improved. [T2 Direct comment: Thank you for your constructive criticism. We have passed your comments on to the manufacturer, Neostar Electronics, and they have improved the quality of the instruction manual. The new manual is now available to download from our website. Please let us know if you feel this is better!]
Great product which bypassed the worry about keeping up with computer upgrades. The screen is a little fuzzy but the images transfer instantly and look great everywhere else I have transferred them to. One small complaint is that the power lead us ridiculously short! Had to use an extension lead just to plug it in to the wall.
Does what says on the tin
As a basic tool, it was ideal for our purpose,primarily to transfer our collection of photos/etc,for the grandchildren.
Sorry to see it was £10 cheaper the week after I brought it
No problems so far ... Does what is claimed.
very good did exactly what i wanted ive tried a couple of other models before but neither of them worked
Easy to use and satisfactory results
basic machine but easy to use and excellent performance for the money. Instruction manual not the easiest to follow as lost a lot in translation, but machine is easy to use intuitively. I am very happy with it. [T2 Direct comment: We found following the instructions and operating the scanner quite easy. However, in light of some feedback from customers we are working with the manufacturer to try to improve the standards of the instruction manual.]
I have not used product at this moment in time
Fulfills the requirments of the job that I required it to do
