Good scanner but beware !
11 September 2004
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...
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.
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.
Summary: PROS: I needed a cheap scanner that will let me scan old 35mm slides. At the same time, I didn't want to buy just a photo scanner which had no use after my personal project. I was very impressed with the quality and didn't need to use higher resolution then 1200 which is about 2Meg file size.
Summary: If you ever used a professional scanner, then you probably know that it is impossible to get the same results with consumer scanners. I learned this the hard way. I bought at least four different consumer scanners expecting similar results to the scans I made with my old HP professional scanner, but...
Summary: Owned this scanner two days. So far so good however, you need not worry about losing your user manual because there isn't one. HTML help files and a quick start guide is all that's provided - not even a pdf document.
Summary: After several weeks of research, I bought my first scanner, the EPSON Perfection 2400. My goal was to convert several decades prints, film negatives, and slides. In my move to digital, the price of this scanner seemed extremely attractive for all the features it offered.
Summary: Pros: Scans fast in high quality Scans film Good software package, to name a few, photoshop elements, OCR reader. Cons: Software that runs the scanner is a bit buggy, getting the software updates seems to only make it worse!
Summary: Great copies of my pictures, great copies of my negatives!! You can't go wrong with this awesome scanner. The only reason it gets 4 rather than 5 stars has been stated in other reviews; Epson could be more proactive with their help files and their software leaves much to be desired.
