This is the classic desktop slide viewer that allows you to easily preview up to 36 slides. Made by Pana-Vue, purveyors of slide viewing devices since the 1950s, it speeds up previews of boxes of slides before you commit to a large digital conversion project or assists in putting together a traditional slide show using a carousel; it also works easily for casual viewing. The hopper can accommodate both 35mm and other 2" x 2" mounted slides, displaying pictures on the illuminated 2 5/8" view screen with 4X magnification. Slides are advanced with an easy push-pull mechanism; viewed slides are deposited into a receiving tray. Includes a screw-type #245 flashlight bulb. Plugs into AC or uses two D batteries (not included). 6" H x 8" W x 5" D. (1 1/2 lbs.)

Classic Desktop Slide Viewer
from Charlotte, nc
The battery/light installation instructions are not very clear.The viewer does not stack slides very well. The receiving compartment is too tight.

Really does the job
from Snellville, GA
It really helps in selecting which old slides to save and transfer to CD/DVD
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Good Option for Slide Sorting
from Boston, MA
Arrived quickly. No assembly. Adapter included or can operate with batteries. Many old slides to sort and purge -- working well for this purpose since I can load about 35 slides at a time. Inner screen does get dusty/shows dust -- haven't figured out how to clean this yet; but not a major impediment to viewing slides.
from Oakland, CA
I actually own a very similar model from the 70's which still works perfectly. However I needed another and was delighted to find this product. You see, I have hundreds of slides taken from 1960-1980 and now wish to convert to DVD. I need to review slides for timing and quality. Thus the slide reviewer. So far it has lived up to my expectations and I would recommend it
Works but cheeply built
from Irmo, SC
Delivery was prompt!
from San Diego
Delivery was fine. I like the simplicity of the viewer. The only criticisn I would have is that when I enter very old slides theyh're too thick to go through, so I have to manipulate them by shoving them through with my finger.
Desktop slide viewer
from Duundee, OR
the operation can be 'sticky' as one pulls the slide into the4 viewer.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Finding Long Lost Photos
from New Providence, New Jersey
We purchased this to look at some old slides we recently found. To our surprise there were a few of our wedding 49 years ago while Peace Corps Volunteers in Liberia. While many of the slides were of no interest the wedding ones made this purchase worth every penny.

from Midland, Michigan
I specifically needed a product to review all of my color slides and put in order for a slideshow.Will now order the Slide/Photo converter so I can now put photo's etc., onto a CD/DVD/or Flashcard using my computer. Handy and easy to use,... just do not abuse it and it will last a lifetime.The service from Hammacher was timely and greatly appreciated. Great productys, great service.
