Good price, but old tech and possibly can get second hand cheaper.

Thing to remember about these type is the negatives have got to be really clean and dust free when you push them thougth. Tiny spec of dust will show up in the image and may scratch the negative. It's far more convoluted but setting up to photo the negative then use software to reverse the negative image is a better way if you want quality. That process may be beyond most people though. This works but be careful if your old negatives have value to you.

Are you aware of a new tech Slide & Negative scanner at a reasonable price please?

Whilst this may be old tech, there are a LOT of people who have slides and negatives that they would love to turn into digital images - and I am top of that list!?

These are fine for snaps. Providing the originals are reasonable.

For masterpieces spend the extra
Any examples of what's better?

I looked in to starting a business, well more an hobby, doing this because I still shoot film now and then. For something really better you would need to pay about £1000. On eBay the are people would will do it cheap but you have also consider the size of the resulting images if you ever plan enlarging them.
I think it will come with basic 'dust removal' software but a can of compressed air would be a good idea to squirt slides. Be warned, it takes ages! And the images, although more convenient are nowhere near as impressive as when projected when the light in them comes alive.
Got this when it was £19.99. Its reasonable for the price I paid for it and the slides look ok on a PC screen. The typical file information on a slide scanned in standard mode is 2592 by 1680 pixels a resolution of 96 di and a bit depth of 24. A slide scanned in interpolated mode will double the number of horizontal and vertical pixels (e.g. 5184 by 3360). It does come with a manual multiple slide feeder but that only seems to work well with some thicker slides (with thinner slides it can sometimes feed two slides in at once) . Files can be saved as JPG or TIFF formats. It can also be used with negatives but I haven't tried this yet. I believe I got this slide scanner about 6 months ago so unless stores have had new stock since then it may only be available in a very limited amount of stores with remaining stock.
Which store was this please @john_spencer

Washington. Sunderland new Lidl store
I mocked up my own version by using a Pringle tin and cutting some cardboard to allow a roll of negatives to be slid through. Then i just took a picture of the negative on a cloudy day pointing to the sky to get a good even light distribution. It worked pretty well
