    Any update or review on this small scanner?
    Is it good as an entry level scanner to get started?

    I am OK with it!

    Customers are happy also.

    The DS-300 and DS-EX are very nice product for the money!

    is DS-EX good enough for all on four case?

    Depends on your knowlege implant system and a few other things would i recommend it for that honestly no go for Pro or better 300 these are very special cases and for different kind of reason hard to scan accurate 45 degree angles and straight up in one scan strategie are lets say with normal matching options very error prone and Photogrammetrie on the 300 helps a lot. And this is only one thing implant system, torque, matchholder and so on.
    matchholder are one of the biggest influencer on implant cases .

    to be a bit more precise if you work with angled abutments as Nobel and glue the shit it works if you want to go straight to interface with lets say bar substructure i would go with Pro or 300 same same but different
    if you have a conical inferface or flat with stopp pmma with substructure, zircon, titanium or co cr with ceramic to many things to consider

    Its a bit like asking how good is this ceramic so i ask back how good you are can you compare markers how much do you know about implant interface geometry and corresponding deviation or about visibility in scanners and matching algos
    you cant pic up only one peace the scanner this is a puzzle if you have shit ceramic the best ofen doesnt help and opposite.

    I am an amateur on this; therefore, i doubt i have significant knowledge related to this matter. I am not a high volume practice, but does enough to justify the cost. I have seen some of the high end scanner has 2 cameras versus Shinning/DOF has only one camera. Does number of camera make any different? I know the megapixel and spacing are important.

    To make it simple neither megapixel nor how much cameras are important for implant scanning this is special on one side easy on the other side complicated lets say a puzzle because its not only the scanner its the implant system and marker too. I have no fear to make a scan competion against DOF , Imetric, Medit, OPT i dont think i am to bad but Imetric, OPT and the 300 Shining use on implants Photogrammetrie too DOF uses hybrid scanning only Breukmann, GOM and Scottys Steinbichler Smart optics Implant do it without but they all have expense sensors , cameras and they are " not so fast" to reduce simple said matching versus scan mistakes.
    Even if you have one of Scottys Steinbichler you can go wrong with the wrong scan markers soon i can tell you more about the Pro side by side with DS EX and Implant scanning is one part of the show but keep in your mind i know that my Camlog markers have less than 5 my and my Medentika less than 10 and a few others i am happy if they reach 20 my deviation and that doesnt work. If you work with conical implant interfaces height deviation goes up to over 120 mikron from model to mouth so the best scanner doesnt help you. Thats why a few screw in interfaces and on them they have a plane surface with no height deviation.

    Does anyone own a DS-EX or DS-EX PRO scanner ?

    I will need some impressions from the USA and i would like to outsource to someone which own one if the price is reasonnable.

    Waiting for your news

    Scott maybe you can post a video of both in action....and then maybe some metrics when compared to a Steiny.

    I convinced me as a 18 years old blond girl a perv used car salesman to go on these scanners. I think I will get one because they look like 2x cheaper and probably better built then competitors toasters from Korea

    Anyone know if it's possible to get the die scanner plate (the one with holes) separately?

    We can't find ours :/

    I think they are surprisingly good value scanners...

    We have 3 of them
    2x DS-EX
    1xDS-EX Pro

    Both very fast and surprisingly good.

    Scanning technology has come a long way and its no where near as expensive as it usrd to be.
