RE: filmscanners: Scanner Buying Dilemma



IF Polaroid should file for chapter 11, and the scanner division is a
viable and profitable entity, I am quite sure it would be conserved in
any reorganization. 

Even IF Polaroid should be dissolved via the chapter 7 route, the
profitable and viable entities are sure to be bought (at bargain prices)
up by others in the imaging industry (a la AMR's purchase of TWA out of
bankruptcy this year in the airline bus.). In general, the acquiring
company will honor the obligations (to consumers) of the entity acquired
-- if for no other reasons than it makes good business sense to keep
customers happy.

Thus I would not worry about buying a Polaroid scanner for these
reasons. 

IF should the worst should happen, I would hope the new owners would
have the sense to keep David H doing his fine job of representing
Polaroid scanners.

I'm not sure what this means exactly.  Are you suggesting the person but
a Microtek version of the SS4000, or that if Polaroid should disappear,
a person could "change name plates" and attempt to get a warranty repair
through Microtek?

The SS4000 and Microtek version have different bodies, so it isn't just
a nameplate, and also the Polaroid seem to be built to higher standards
than the Microtek version, as per several reviews.
