I've seen the PrimeFilms in passing but never looked at them all that closely. Just took a quick look via B&H and I'm not sure which model you are looking at but take a read of the B&H reviews for the PrimeFilm XE. B&H also has the Plustek OpticFilm 8100 and it's less than the PrimeFilm XE ($239 until 12/31 vs. $299) and has slightly higher review ratings.

I figure the reviews at B&H are more than likely from people who have at least some knowledge of cameras and equipment--moderately gifted vs. basic-bozohood...'-}}--and maybe take a browse at some of the amazon reviews. The PrimeFilm comes with Silverfast scanning software which I've never cared for--although, it was years ago that I tried to use it so maybe it's better now.

Keep us posted on what you decide...
