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: 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: 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: 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.
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: I don't have a lot of scanning experience -- this scanner is the first one I've owned. That being said, I've had it for about 4 months and so far I love it. The interface is really easy to work with and I've been happy with the quality of scans.
