Transferring slides to a computer

I think someone recently asked the question about transferring slides to a computer, normally I used a Epson Perfection 2480 for the job but unfortunately despite upgrading the software no way would it scan the slides so I had to resort to purchasing a stand alone slide scanner, for what few slides I had the idea was to purchase the cheapest device available which I did,

Works fine and am well pleased with it, used with Windows 7 (64bit) ? may also work on linux but not tried that yet.
Final Point this offer finishes on 31st December so be quick !!

I've used one of these for some time and scanned loads of slides and negatives to PC.

Re: Transferring slides to a computer

Thanks for the link.
I don't have many slides/negatives to scan so haven't wanted to pay out a lot of scudos. This seems just the ticket. I have reserved to collect tomorrow.
