ScanDigital Review and Giveaway- CLOSED


Can you believe that there was a time before digital cameras and digital camcorders? Back when we had only one copy of a photograph (maybe two if you didn't lose the photo strip)? You may be asking yourself "Why in the world do I need to know about the ScanDigital Service?" I know for myself, when my husband and I were growing up, the only way our parents were able to capture our memories was via VHS camcorders. Now, VHS being almost obsolete, it is nearly impossible to watch your childhood memories unless you have the correct player. (And who wants to rewind and fast forward anyway!) With the services provided by ScanDigital, you can now turn those old time memories into current time media.

ScanDigital is a photo scanning service that allows you to turn your old photographs, film and video into a digital format. With ScanDigital you receive a "Personal Touch. Your memories are one of a kind and deserve to last forever. We take tremendous care with each item you send us. Everything is processed manually to ensure your order receives that personal touch it deserves" (taken from their Web site).

ScanDigital had offered me a $50 gift card to try out there services. My mother in-law had a handful of VHS cassettes that she wanted to turn into DVD's. My order was received on August 10, 2011 and was completed a few weeks later on September 30, 2011. That is a pretty reasonable amount of time for the hours upon hours of home movie footage that I sent in!

Taken from ScanDigital
I found the process to be pretty user-friendly.  There were 5 basic steps to complete the first part of the transaction:

1. What type of material am I sending- is it film, VHS, photographs?

2. Pricing Options- standard vs. My Life, Digital - Prepay & Save.

3. Digital Output- for me, being that I had VHS, I had the choice of DVD or hard drive.

4. Any Additional Products- Do I want a slide show or photo frame and memory card? I did not select any of these.

5. Shipping and Payment Information- I personally decided that I wanted to be on the extra-precautionary side and ordered a Secure Shipping Kit for an additional cost.

What I truly liked was that you could get an estimate cost of all your services with their handy pricing calculator. You do need to give them your credit card information upon signing up, so this feature put me at ease knowing that I had an estimate to as how much I would be spending.

That was it. A few days later I received my Secure Shipping Kit and my mother in-laws VHS were on their way to be turned into DVDs. A few weeks later I received my new DVDs as well as my returned VHS cassettes. I had gotten nervous not hearing from the company after my "estimated completion date" and emailed their support (not my contact) for a follow up. The woman from ScanDigital's support department did respond quickly as to why my order was taking longer than expected. I just would of thought I would of received an email to let me know it was going to take longer than expected prior to my email. Nonetheless they did a fantastic job.  My husband and I then sat down and watched these home videos and were very impressed with the quality of their work.
