A scanner well worth the money.
6 March 2013
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: I needed a scanner for a bunch of slides that I needed to preserve and this was it. After some research I found this was by far the best scanner for the money and I'm glad I bought it. The very first scan blew my mind and even after doing a bunch it's still amazing how good the quality is using this. There is a light in the cover that turns on when scanning slides or even negatives, this acts to light the slide and not distort the colors.
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. We had it up and running in nearly no time. More important, once it was running it was easy-to-use and the quality of the scanned images was remarkably crisp.
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. Scanning at the full quality and size that the scanner allows takes up lots of memory, but you never really need to do that, unless you're planning on making a photo-quality poster out of a piece of paper. Linux users - Epson actually provides a driver on their site.
Summary: I'm delighted with this scanner and find that the software works well. I'm using OS10.3.2 without a hitch. I use the scanner for prints only, so I can't comment about scanning slides or film. The scanned images are sharp with excellent color rendition. The scanner integrates perfectly with iPhoto which is where my digitized images end up. If you're looking for a print scanner to use with Panther, this is a good choice.
Summary: I must say, this is an excellent scanner. It is quick and easy. I upgraded from a scanner that was about 5 years old. What a difference! Paired with my Epson Photo 960 printer, I have my own miniature photo lab! ;) As far as the software concerns, go to the Epson website, download the newest software/drivers and you will be fine.
