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.
Summary: Admittedly, my wife and I were fashionably late for the high tech party and had a lot of catching up to do. Every piece of hardware and software that we bought required a lot of reading or training from 11 year-olds. The Epson Perfection 2400 was happily the exception to this rule.
Summary: I've had no trouble getting this to work with Windows 98, 2000, or Linux. I've only had it for a week, but so far its done great at doing everything from copying my tax returns to scanning images.
