It does a good job making average films look good, so the Ektachrome, Fujichrome, Kodak Gold, etc. look fine for what I do.
To be honest, I've never scanned it myself. I always had roll scanned when the rolls were developed. The frames I really wanted, or the ones that were going to the magazines, would get drum scanned. The files were huge but awesome.
