There was a bit of schmutz on the left knurled area (6 bumps) over the slide slot. Other than that, I agree that it was "mint". It took about 10 minutes in order to download a set of drivers and install them. I put it on an I3 running WIN8. No problems whatsoever with operation. I was a bit disappointed that the SW downloaded from Nikon didn't allow anything but a proprietary Nikon image format and TIFF. But, I can convert it to JPEG. My purpose is slide shows of old Kodachrome and Ektachrome, not printing at super high res or checking colors and exposures with 18% grey references and such. Now I need a can of compressed CO2! (dust on the slides!) I do believe the seller knows the product he specializes in. Today, I will try the Negative scanner attachment. (Insert) Thank you!

Outstanding Film/Slide Scanner - Outstanding Value!
The Nikon Coolscan V is a film scanner capable of extracting all of the image quality present in your 35mm negatives and slides. At under $1000 including film and slide adapters, it's a truly outstanding value. ...Really can't be matched. It can easily be installed on any laptop or desktop PC under any 32-bit or 64-bit edition of Windows including Windows 10, and can be operated with Nikon Scan 4, VueScan, or SilverFast software. My personal preference is Nikon Scan 4.

Nikon CoolScan V becomes a new scanner with SilverFast 8
Nikon CoolScan V becomes a new scanner with SilverFast 8. Dynamic range reaches up to try 4.0 with Multi-Exposure. The focus dialog in SIlverFast uniquely allows precise focussing. It is even possible to defous so precisely that you can get rid of film grain and keep all the image details. SilverFast iSRD gives you full control over dust and scratches and you can even save the infrared channel along with HDR (48bit) data and do the dust and scratch removal later on in SilverFast HDR application.

Nikon CoolScan V ED Slide/Negative Scanner
Very good scanner for 35mm slides and negatives. I've been using it now for about two weeks and have scanned about 200 slides and negatives. I can only compare it to my previous scanner, a Canoscan 8800F. I've done over 1,500 negative scans with the Canon product. My first 100 scans (approximately) with the Nikon were direct comparisons with previous scans done with the Canon. What I found was what I expected for the most part. The Nikon outperformed the Canon in most areas. The ability of the Nikon to extract information from low light and dark areas within slides and negatives is one of the strongest features of this scanner. I was able to rescue several pictures that the Canon simply wasn't able to handle well. One in particular, the Canon couldn't "see" anything but the Nikon was able to produce a reasonable scan. The Nikon has far greater flexibility for tweaking the final product than the Canon. As such, the Canon is much simpler to use. I can scan two negative strips at a time with the Canon as opposed to one at a time with the Nikon but the Canon takes three times longer. My Canon scans were done at 6400dpi (why they took so long) and produced a smoother texture that did not pixelate as quickly at the Nikon scan when cropping but the Nikon tended to produce sharper, brighter results than the Canon. Surprisingly, I've found a few pictures that I simply could not get a good result from with the Nikon but the Canon handled quite well. Stark changes in contrast seem to be a problem for the Nikon. It can capture one extreme but at the expense of the other. One type of scene in particular, a landscape with relatively dark land area and a relatively brighter sky has been a problem when the ratio of dark land to bright sky has been small (one fifth land, four fifths sky or more). The Nikon captures the sky brilliantly but leaves the land completely dark and featureless. I've seen this perhaps half a dozen times. The exact same negatives were handled quite well by the Canon. This may be a function of my inexperience with the Nikon as I'm still pretty steep on the learning curve with it but I tried quite a few adjustments in curves and just could not get a good result on those scans with the Nikon. Another problem I've seen with the Nikon is in the adjustment for faded pictures. Sometimes the result gives fairly harsh contrasts within the picture that give the end result an artificial "painted" look. I might blame this on the picture except I have the exact same negative scanned in the Canon and the result is quite pleasing. A major advantage with the Nikon is the Digital Ice 4. The Canon solution for fixing blemishes, scratches, dust etc is done through their own proprietary algorithms that, in my experience, noticeably decreases the sharpness of the picture, which I didn't care for. Digital sharpening did not cure this problem. I ended up fixing scans by hand in Photoshop Elements. The end result was a flawless picture but it was very labor intensive. The Nikon does not suffer from that shortcoming. The Digital Ice performs exceptionally well. Even the negatives in the worst condition came out nearly flawless. I haven't had to spend more than a few minutes in "post" production, fixing flaws, with any scan from the Nikon so far. With relatively few exceptions, my results so far have been very pleasing. If you have 35mm slides and negatives to scan, I can recommend this scanner without hesitation. Read full review

Professional scans, witha big learning curve.
So far, my results have been impressive. It seems to be a very well-made professional negative scanner that you can have some fun with. Here are the negatives: Be prepared to spend some time with this thing. As far as I can tell, any decent quality scan requires a good amount of time to complete, upwards of 15 minutes for a four shot negative. As well, the instruction manual is practically useless. This device is highly capable, and offers many impressive features, but learning how to use them is a virtual mystery. You can get help online, but unless you have an innate understanding about this topic, don't expect to jump right in. If you're anything like me, you'll probably spend the majority of your time going back and correcting mistakes from your early scans because nothing was clearly explained. To tell the truth: I'm still not sure if I'm using the best settings to accomplish my goal. Given the time it takes to complete one scan, I'm willing to bet I'm overdoing it with my choice of settings. Don't let it scare you though. This is a nice device. I haven't been able to tear myself away from it since I got it. If anyone out there has some pointers for me, I'd be grateful. Read full review
