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.)

What a huge help!
By Jamie-keeper of the flame
from Kent Island, Maryland
The viewer is helping me to "weed through" 82 rotary slide trays that contain from 80 to 140 slides per box - they represent photos taken by my dad from 1957 through 2000. He died in 2001 at age 89. I will keep the ones that mean the most to me and my family and the rest will "go away". The old Carousel projector is too old and operates in fits and starts so the viewer was a terrific solution. Works great!!
Does the Job
By Kiawah Judge
from Kiawah Island, SC
has enabled me to get through 3000 slides for editing and categorization in a very reasonable time
Definitely makes it easier.
from New Smyrna Beach, FL
I am sorting hundreds of old slides to convert to CDs. This viewer simplifies the project by holding 36 at a time. It presents clear, easy to view pictures for sorting.

Pana View Viewer, great, bulb bad
from Middle of Indiana
See all my reviews
The bad thing is the short life span of the bulb, and I have not yet figured out how to replace it
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your comment. To replace a bulb, place viewer upside down. Pull receiving tray to the right until it stops. Lightly depress white tab then release to allow you to continue to pull slide out of tray. Grasp slide tray and white battery case together and completely remove.
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
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
