High optical resolution and a fast scan speed means that the Plustek easily outperforms other film scanners in the same price range.  Pre scans take around 25 seconds to complete with a good quality scan taking around 40 seconds, however should you wish to use the best settings available on this scanner the time will increase.  When used with something like Polaroids free dust and scratch remover plugin the results can be improved further.
