[filmscanners] Re: Help with purchasing decision?

Hi Michael,

I think you will find the Microtek offerings very similar to Polaroid's.

If Polaroid was on more solid footing, I would suggest it as a better
option, because, up until recently at least, they provided better client
support (in North America), and the software package (Insight) is a good
front end (I'm not sure how the Microtek software stacks up).

Since Microtek is the manufacturer, and seems on solid footing for the
foreseeable future, I think you're logic makes good sense.
