Definitely better since it looks like your old one had trouble with the focus on graded cards. I know my older scanner made the cards with lots of variation in the refractor pattern like the two above look awesome, but I ended up switching to a new one a few years back because I hated how it made regular refractors look. old vs. new:

It does have the effect of making many silver-toned refractors look white but I didn't like the lines that showed up on the old one.
I got the Epson v370 so I'm going to be interested to see how it makes regular refractors look since it has the light bar effect. I originally ordered a V600 that doesn't have the light bar effect but it has been back ordered for over 2 months and I got impatient.
The basic set was what I posted. There was a gold and platinum parallel which were die cut and plastic.Is that a proof of some kind or am I misremembering the set, I thought they had round corners like an actual credit card?
I guess that's what I remembered, I do remember thinking it was cool when they came, but not cool enough to actually do much with.
