Summary: I really love the quality of the scans that I have made. This scanner scans quick and clear (my old scanner scanned really slow and very dark). However, I have had a strange problem with installation. Every once in a while, my usb port will not find the scanner and I have to reinstall the driver.
Summary: I purchased this Epson B104091 Perfection 1200U USB Scanner (PC/Mac)for my daughter who just recently started using a pc. This product was so easy to setup and use that my daughter (who couldn't figure out how to save a word file)was able to setup this scanner and scan pictures all within an hour.
Excerpt: When I bought my scanner two years ago, I decided that I did not have the money to buy again in a short while and researched the best scanner that I could buy. I needed a scanner that scanned images, but one that also scanned negatives.
Excerpt: I owned an old Umax Astra 600P scanner which seemed agonizing slow, though quality of the output seemed very good. I read about the Epson Perfection in PC magazine which gave it Editor's Choice award so I decided to give it a try since it was available at buy.com with a £20 off coupon.
Excerpt: This is one excellent scanner, I use my scanner to restore and edit photographs for my family and friends. With an optical resolution of 1200 by 2400 there is no need for interpolation, which is what cheap scanners use.
Excerpt: I waited more than 3 months for this scanner.Word has got out on just how good they are.If this sounds like a commercial well then I am sorry but this is a superb scanner and one well worth the wait to get one.I particularly liked the ease of the removal(and setup)of the slide adapter that sits on...
Excerpt: This scanner is based on the Epson Perfection 1200U but the Photo has an additional feature of a transparency adapter which is ideal if you want to reproduce positive negatives, or normal negatives.
Pros: Transparency Adaptor, USB - Easy Connectivity, Fast Pre - scan

Excerpt: What a great scanner! I needed a good quality scanner for a newly started web design business from my home - yet I am on a tight budget and couldn't swing for the expensive "Professional" scanners. I couldn't be more pleased with my scanner purchase 2 1/2 weeks ago.
Excerpt: At $249 this is at the high end for a flatbed scanner. If you use your scanner to make money, as I do in selling antique postcards on eBay, definitely. Go ahead and buy it even if you don't have the money. This is a piece of equipment that will pay for itself in online auctions.
