Summary: Initially installed 1250 with Windows ME. Software and drivers had no problem with Epson supplied software. Upgraded to XP and software and drivers were not compatible. Driver upgrade is available as of 1/6/02 but software upgrade (promised mid-December) is yet to be available for full compatibility...
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: After installing the software EXACTLY as described in the documentation, the TWAIN driver did not function properly. The scanner does not work with my version of Windows98, which I recently re-installed on my PC.
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: As most of the previous reviewers have stated, it's a wonderful little scanner. But I just can't get over how poor the software is. In an age where Windows XP seems to anticipate my every move, working with the clunky software provided is really annoying.
Summary: I've enjoyed the superb quality of my Epson printers & wanted to give them a try for my next scanner. For the price, you can't beat the quality of the scan or the fact that it includes a 35mm film adapter. But I do have a couple of issues that are serious enough for me to write about. 1) Dust.

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).
