Summary: I have negatives that are 100 years old and was looking for a scanner to view and print them. This scanner has worked very well for me. I was quoted a price of $5 a negative by a person that would do them for me.So far I have scanned over 800 negatives and numerous pictures. It has more than paid for itself.
Summary: This scanner does a really good job, if you are using windows XP. It needed a software upgrade for Vista that worked but,loss some of the original functionality. You can also download Windows 7 software but, again you lose some functions and it will not scan film / slides under windows 7 and there is not patch to fix that. This seems to be a consistant problem with Epson Scanners.
Summary: I purchased this scanner used, for $10 from the local Habitat for Humanity store- they even gave me a 7 day performance guarantee !! Not bad ! Installation was very easy. I downloaded and installed the latest driver version from the Epson website. WinXP recognized the scanner upon connection and configured the driver(s) for me. After installation, I am able to use the scanner with Epson native TWAIN software, WinXP Scanner applets or PS Elements 2.
Summary: Controls and instructions for this scanner are awful, and mine developed a habit of quiting just as it was completing the scan! Epson support would never answer the phone. I am using Mac 10.4.3.
Summary: My previous scanner was an SCSI device, and when I upgraded my computer, I was faced with the choice of installing an SCSI card or upgrading to a new USB compatible scanner. I'm glad I chose to buy this scanner. Installed on a Windows XP machine, the installation was simple, and the user interface options allow me to control the scanning operations with very little effort.
