    I want to burn my 35mm slides to DVD and would like to get your input as to
    what the best scanner is to do this job? What should I be looking for in a
    scanner? I assume that a DVD + - R/RW burner is the best??

    A VCD might be good enough to start with? I assume you want to show a slide
    show on a TV via a set top box? TV's are really low rez so you don't need
    giant files to show them on one.

    Sub £500 is more like it... I paid £532 (taxes incl.) for mine.

    boy have you opened a can f worms!! :) The arguments between - and
    + DVD rage.
    1) the problem with RW is that in CD or DVD one drive may not be able
    to read the others' disks. Straight burn is not a problem
    2) The industry standard is -R, however +R format has some interesting
    advancements.

    The choice is yours.

  6. depend on what kind of usage you plan with that DVD. For viewing slideshows
    an a TV, your images have the limitation of TV resolution which is ugly bad.
    If you just plan to archive your slides, the beste scanner you get ist the
    worst case:)
