Works great with older systems, not so great (if at all) with Vista

Summary: Unlike the other user, we had results from this product using an older Windows operating system. However, when we bought a new PC and changed to Windows Vista Premium, this scanner would not work no matter how many drivers we downloaded or how many of Epson's recommended programs we downloaded.
Summary: My first scanner was an Epson 600, but when I made the jump to Win2K, there was no driver for it so I bought the Epson Perfection 1250. Alas, it was not as good a scanner. The two main problems are: - The control panel pops up randomly, something for which there is no fix apparently.
Summary: I purchased this scanner to replace my Acer 610P 600x600 48-bit scanner. I have compared images for a week and I cannot get an image as good as the Acer produces, therefore I will be trading the scanner in for something different.

Summary: Got Epson 1250 photo. After 1 hr. on phone with tech. At my expense-no 800#- I found out it wouldn't work properly until I installed some program from internet, but still don't know how to do that. Took it back and got Canon 1250 photo. Canon has excellent tech support. AND TOLL FREE.
Summary: I bot this scanner and have scanned 50 color photos. The scan quality is generally good (better than 610) but the software is [poor]. You just cant scan to a file..The fullauto mode works ok though. The scanner makes a lot of noise (like a chopper).
Summary: First, it didn't work on my windows2000 at all. Second, Got it working on my windows98 machine, but "copy" button never works, it always gave error message, (ironically my printer is an Epson Stylus 640).
