Ticking time bomb

Winterradio, Amazon

  • Summary: I used to like this scanner except for the excessive amount of dust previously mentioned in other reviews, then, I unplugged it. I tried to plug it back in and it would not work, the twain drivers were not recognized. After reinstalling both the scanner and twain drivers per epson's 5 day late response it still would not work.

Worked GREAT.. at FIRST!

  • Summary: Okay.. had I posted a review for this scanner within the first few months of owning it, I would have given it rave reviews a-la most of the other reviews here. I'm glad procrastinated. I noticed dust starting to appear in my scans. At first they were negligable, easilly mistaken for a spec on the picture itself, but I can fully attest that over time the dust will accumulate under the glass and your scans will have a considerable amount of noise.

I have no complaints about this scanner!

  • Summary: This scanner replaces an old UMAX scsi scanner. From setup to first scan this scanner is a breeze. My wife uses it everyday and it hasn't given her one problem. It's fast, reliable and worth every penny.

Fast, crisp . . . DUSTY

J. Marcewicz "spooky", Amazon

  • Summary: A great scanner with excellent features that would have rated 5 stars if not for and excessive amount of dust on the *inside* of the scanner glass. I read about this problem from previous customer reviews, but decided to purchase it anyway, hoping perhaps my scanner would be dust-free. Nope. Thank goodness for Photoshop's Dust & Scratches filter which puts a band-aid on the problem, but obviously does not cure it. Methinks a replacement scanner is warranted...

Fast, sharp...DUSTY

J. Marcewicz "spooky", Amazon
8 November 2001
  • Summary: An excellent scanner worthy of 5 stars if not for an inordinate amount of dust on the underside of the platen. I had been warned about this by previous customer reviews but decided to purchase one anyway with the hopes that mine would be different. Wrong. Thank goodness for Photoshop's Dust & Scatches filter which corrects the problem, though obviously does not solve it. Methinks another scanner is warranted...

Epson Perfection 1240U

John, Amazon
8 November 2001
  • Summary: The scanner is very easy to use. Produces great scans. I have had no problems with it thus far. Before I ordered this scanner I did some extensive research and frankly I was a little concerned about all the hoopla about dust getting under the glass. I have not had this problem. The scanner has NOT disappointed me. A great buy for the money.

Didn't work! No Support!

Dar N., Amazon
4 November 2001
  • Summary: The Epson scanner was easy to hook up, had straight forward directions for use, and it easily scanned a document to be printed. It would not scan a document into a program so that it could be edited. Having sent several e-mail requests for help to Epson, and not receiving one response, I returned the scanner.

Best scanner period!

  • Summary: Great quality positive and negative scans. Very speedy. Very well built. Only draw back is you have to exchange the top everytime you want to scan slides.
