    No problem. Drop him an email if you have any questions. He's a really super guy to deal with. He sells the calibration sheets but I don't remember the price.

    So I got a reply from CPS!

    They sell new and used calibration slides. The new ones are $270 and the used ones are $130. Can someone give me a reason why the used ones are only half the price? Is it really just because they have been used before? Can these slides "deteriorate" over time? I think Howtek had calibration slides that started turning yellow, although I might be mistaken.

    They also sent me an entire list of spare parts, so I can post them here if anybody is interested.

    I just remembered this recent post: http://www.largeformatphotography.in...tware-from-CPS
    Maybe the used slide has scratches? Better to ask and get photos, otherwise buy new.

    Considering that these slides have been well out of production for more than a decade, anything you buy today will come with its age even if it branded "new". Mine is from late 1990s and I don't see any issues with it and the scanner calibrates perfectly using it. You should be perfectly fine as long the used one is not damaged and scratched as Ari mentioned.

    So, apparently the slides are perfectly fine. They don't have any pictures of the slides, so I will just have to trust them. I personally think it isn't their intention to fool people since they operate in such a niche market, that just one "bad review" could have serious consequences.

    Give the used one a try - you have most likely a 90+% probability of it being OK and, given the cost differential, it's a good bet.

    Hey, I wanted to thank all of you guys for your input! Highly appreciate it!

    The used slides with VAT and shipping will cost me about $180. So everything together is going to cost me $300. I would say it's pretty good, no?

    I'm going to order the slides once I pick up the scanners, which is going to be in about two weeks. I will update you guys once I pick them up!
