    Thanks Patch17. How much it cost?

    Nickmak, 4870 is very expensive lah..

    I saw Microtek 6100 at below $300. Is it good.
    Tomorrow got IT Show at Suntec, might be going and see if there;s a promotion.

    Try not to scrimp on a good scanner. If you are really looking for a good scanner to digitally archive your negatives/slides, then get the best one that your budget would allow.

    I would recommend that you go for the Epson Perfection Photo series as they have consistently produced good quality scanners.

    The best is still to do some research on the Web before making your decision.

    OT: There is an IT show going on at Suntec meh?
