I'd wait before posting this type of thing as it is very premature.I am in the midst of a very disappointing experience -- one I hope will improve.
I recently bought a Nikon Coolscan 9000 through a posting here. I received the scanner, but it would not show up on my computer. I have several computers so I tried the scanner on all of them, but no computer shows it as connected. I took out a Coolscan 8000 I had "mothballed" and tried to connect that one. Each computer recognized it with no problem. So, I then go to the troubleshooting procedure outlined by Nikon (power on scanner, power on computer, run Nikon Scan, see if scanner found). Scanner passes its "post" test but seems to have a problem with the firewire port (as best I can tell from web threads re: 9000). After going through this testing and confirming the problem resides with the scanner and not my computer(s), I have now tried to alert the seller of the problem to inquire what position he will take. I am waiting to hear back.
Here is a link to the posting: http://www.getdpi.com/forum/gear-fs-...s-holders.html
In fairness to the seller, it has only been a couple of days since I reached out to him (he acknowledged my initial communication) so he may well intend to take care of this properly (i.e., pay for repair by Nikon or accept return). So, at the moment, this post should be regarded only as potential negative feedback on an expensive purchase (at least to me).
