Al: I can't speak for the HP but I do have the Microtek Scanmaker X6 with the Lightlid adapter and have scanned in excess of 2000 slides. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate the results at a 4 to 5. If I had it to do over again, and I may still do it, I would go with a real slide and negative scanner - this is just a bit much for flat bed scanner. I am speaking of 35mm format. Larger media works fine. And, the X6 does a good job on everything else, especially considering its price range.
