Apex who?

Richard Schwenk, Amazon
26 January 2011
  • Summary: I just unpacked the product a short time ago and found all the parts missing I need to scan slides. I notified Apex and they said it would take a day or 2 to resolve the problem. After a week, they say they are still working with the warehouse to solve the problem. I can't review the product, but I wanted to complain to Amazon - how could they associate with such a sloppy outfit?

Try these tips for a bit of Perfection

Anthony H. Conroy, Amazon
19 January 2008
  • Summary: Well i've read the reviews here and i here what your'e saying. I agree it's not the fastest on the bloc nor is it absolute satate of the art, and the Software could have been better, but it does do everything it's supposed to do , and the features are pretty good espically the ability to scan a mix of images on the glass and put them in individual files.

epson perfection 1260

E. Burch, Amazon
11 September 2006
  • Summary: Please do yourself a favor and don't purchase this scanner. It is by far the WORST scanner I've ever owned. I think my scsi scanner from the early 90's was better, at least it worked. Epson also is notorius for providing terrible support for their products and as far as I can tell no longer provides an updated driver for the 1260 model on their site. You need the full driver to scan slides.

Three years experience

Dr. Michael J. Todd, Amazon
24 August 2005
  • Summary: I have had this scanner for about three years - use it moderately, but a lot at the moment. It has always done what is said it would, never any hang ups or errors and the Smart Panel equally seems to do what it says. Apart from the long warmup time, not a bad buy (although not obsolete) Those with problems may well have configuration difficulties or whatever.

The worst scanner I have used in twenty years!

Jaundiced Eye "jaundicedeye", Amazon
10 July 2005
  • Summary: I got this as part of a special offer with my Mac G4. I have been using scanners for almost 20 years, and this is *the worst* I have ever had the misfortune to be stuck with. There is no "off" button; the only way to shut it off (and prevent its big green light from illuminating the room) is to unplug it; if it has one-touch copying, I have never succeeded in getting it to work; the software is terrible -- at least fifty per cent of the time it stops making copies for no...

Decent scanner, mediocre software

Engineer_Bob, Amazon
27 July 2004
  • Summary: I purchased a 1260 about 9 months ago after my first-generation scanner (from UMAX) died. The scanner and software were quite easy to set up (on a PC running Windows XP), I've had no hardware problems, and I've found the picture quality to be very acceptable. It's a bit slow to warm up and scan, but both were as expected in this price range.

A very good home-use scanner

Ruth, Amazon
14 April 2004
  • Summary: This is my first scanner but it has been a pleasure. It has never caused any trouble and has always done what I asked. Sometimes I struggle to get the 35mm adapter to work (the optional attachment) but other than that, this scanner has proved to be a very good purchase.

What Junk-Software Sucks

Richard Schwenk, Amazon
30 March 2004
  • Summary: What a waste of money. Purely a disaster. Lucky to get 2 scans without errors. Total frustration. messages:Scanner busy, scanner warming up; scanner not ready; scanner not available. This makes the old Microtek look like a dream machine. I have another Epson at home and the Smart Panel software is not so smart- there too- errors, lockups. I hope nobody else buys this garbage. Poor support terrible software.
