No need to be respectful about it - I haven't tried the slide/negative
adaptors so can't make any comment about their quality! However, I note
that the US price of the Photosmart S20 is $499 (last updated on HP's
website http://www.pandi.hp.com/pandi-db/prodinfo.main?product=photos20scanner ) 
is rather higher than the cost of the slide adaptors I suggested. 

You pays your money and you takes your choice...

BTW, has anyone else posting to ccp4bb recently been getting messages
