Reflecta MemoScan review

Reflecta's CMOS scanner is fast, but is its 3.8MP resolution enough?

Scanner review

We Like

If you want a scanner to digitize old family memories, then the MemoScan has a lot to offer. Once you've installed the software it's easy to use and its rapid scan times mean you can get through a load of negs or trannies quickly.

We Dislike

The MagicTouch anti dust feature is good but we're not confident it works in all situations, with larger dust particles persisting.

Verdict

Based on current technologies, CMOS scanners will always lag behind conventional scanner designs when it comes to image quality, although the MemoScan is better than some models we've seen.
