Not a photo scanner

Summary: The Epsom 1660 says it is a photo scanner. I don't know what kind of photos they were scanner when they named it such, but I don't own any. The quality is shockingly bad. It won't even scan an ink sketch that is worthy of printing. Save this for documents and nothing more.
Summary: I bought this product because I edit pictures; I like the how quick the scanner does its work and the only drawback is that I had to make a power supply for it; I've seen the same scanners but this one was one of the cheapest I could find, but overall, this product definitely serves its purpose!
Summary: I had one just like it before and liked it. I already knew how to work it so it looked like a good deal. And it is a scanner that turns negatives into photo's and that is one of my favorite things about it.
Summary: This scanner produces fair results for most work. There is a major flaw in the design that prospective buyers should know. The assumption is that when scanning negatives, there will be a difference in density between the edge of the frame and the inter-frame space. This is usually, but not always the case. I have a large project involving photographing small items against a black background.
Summary: Worked fine when first installed. Lost hard drive and now ubable to re-install. Have done extensive and very time consuming research on the problem to no avail. Have un-installed and re-installed several times, following the instructions carefully. Keep getting the same error message when trying to open the so called "Smart Panel". ...... "APPLICATION FAILED TO INSTALL BECAUSE: ISM.DLL WAS NOT FOUND.
Summary: Bought the so-called Mac compatible scanner last year and it worked with OS 9. I went to do this years batch of scans using OS X and no go. Image Capture doesn't see it connected via USB. An Apple Support document indicates that the 1660 Photo driver is NOT a built-in driver in Mac OS X. I downloaded most the recent software (epson11208.sea) from Epson website, installed it...the scanner app won't even startup!
