Hi Simon,
               I have Scan Elite. It was producing bands with Vuescan s/w. I 
started using Minolta's s/w, its fine now & I am sessing any banding.

This sunday, I scanned a roll Kodak e200 slides, results were verymuch matching 
origianl slides, needed very little
color correction.

I suggest you buy in a shop(instead of on-line shop), so that if there is any 
problem you can really exchange for other ones or other brand.

Thanks
Ramesh

Simon,

I'm between scanners at the moment but did have an Elite.  It went back as it 
had CCD problems - some pixels in the green channel were not calibrated 
properly so produced green lines in the very deep shadows which marred the 
shadow detail.  As I paid 730 for mine, I wasn't prepared to accept this.

However, for slides which are not too dense and for negs, these problems were 
not too noticeable.  Generally, it is a very good scanner, on a par with the 
Nikon LS2000, and there are other list members who have had no problems at all. 
 Its fast, fairly sharp, has relatively low noise (even without using 
multiscanning) and has good shadow detail. If these are new units with a full 
warranty, I'd say 250 is a very good price.

If you have any specific questions, let me know.
