HP 7400C Flatbed scanner-Any good for film - Photography

I have access to a HP 7400 C flatbed scanner. It has a slide adapter. I have not used it yet. Does anyone know if this item will produce adequate scans of 35 mm and medium format slides/negatives? I know that dedicated film scanners sometimes have problems producing good scans. I have done a web search but could not find any information on the quality of film scans from flatbed scanners. Aslo comments from people with experience with similar equipment would be welcome. Thanks for any advice, Rick...

    Why not just hook it up and try it?

    I have that scanner and I have used it some for slides and 35mm
    negatives.
    It's ok for the occasional scanning. Try it with the HP software and
    then try it with a trial version of Vuescan
