Epson Perfection 1650 Photo Flatbed Scanner

Gene Park, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: This failed too soon and then the software became incompatible with the updated Apple operating system. Junk. I still haven't disposed of it as it sits under a bed collecting dust bunnies.

Epson Perfection 1650- scanning negatives

bxcat_2008, Ebay
18 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought this scanner used because I wanted to see if 1600 dpi is a good enough improvement over a 1200 dpi HP Scanjet 3500c in the task of scanning Black and White Plus-X film negatives, and color negatives also. I found that the Epson sounds smoother for the scans, and the bundled CD-ROM had some smoothly running software that was easy to install into Windows XP.

Scanner for slides and negatives

douglr, Ebay
2 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought it because I needed to scans slides and negatives. It took me a long time to get the scanner operational. I discovered after many download attempts that the USB cable that I received with the scanner was defective. Then I needed the Smart Panel software, which wasn't available as a download. Fortunately I had a CD from a 1670 scanner that worked. The seller and Epson were very helpful in resolving these problems.

Bad news for mac users

se7en, Amazon
25 March 2008
  • Summary: This scanner, and possibly other Epson(tm) products will not work in CS3. Epson needs to update their drivers; a problem which they refuse accept responsibility for. It works perfectly for anything pre-CS3, but if you plan on upgrading at some point, you may be better off continuing your research. I have also heard reports that it is not just a mac problem, but I can't verify that.

Faulty Scanner

Robert Donaldson, Amazon
13 July 2007
  • Summary: The Epson 1650 yielded satisfactory results while it lasted. However, it recently began making noise like gears being stripped and promptly gave up the ghost. I've been wondering how far I could throw the thing. I'll try H.P. next time.

Easy setup and easey to use

P. Jones, Amazon
13 July 2003
  • Summary: Epson has produced an excellent and fast imaging scanner that includes easy setup and easy utilization. The results are crisp and do not require PhotoShop enhancements (unless, of course, the original image was impoverished). Makes me look at my old Umax SCSI scanner with absolute disgust.

Works great with xp

Dian "D", Amazon
7 July 2003
  • Summary: This is one scanner that will work with xp, me, 98.. Works great, I had no problem installing it. Just make sure you install the driver BEFORE you plug the scanner into your computer. The included software isn't the greatest, that's why I only gave it a 4.. But I already have Microsoft picture it installed and that works a little better than some of the Epson's included software. I have a HP printer and it works fine with that.

Hard to beat for the price

Tool Connoisseur, Amazon
1 July 2003
  • Summary: I don't know about XP but it works great with Win98. Installation was a snap. I bought it for archiving my old photo negatives and slides. I debated getting their next higher model for increased resolution based on a techie review, but I'm glad I didn't. The resolution is very adequate for the average home user, and then some - if you use the max resolution you should have a relatively new computer to handle it.
