Beware buying this from Amazon

Steve E "Steve_E", Amazon
19 August 2005
  • Summary: Beware buying this item from Amazon. I ordered it and did not receive the right product. After they confirmed that they sent the wrong one (after much fanfare and arguing) they said they would ship the right one.

Bad experience with reliability and service

S. Parler "technoBuff", Amazon
12 July 2005
  • Summary: I received this scanner from a low-price Amazon merchant, cincynow, promptly and in apparently good condition. Set-up was straightforward, and I began my big photo-scanning project of about 1,000 photo's of various sizes by sorting them by size.

Connectivity problem

Ron05, Amazon
4 June 2005
  • Summary: Buried in the Trouble Shooting guide is an advisory that the 2480 may have problems talking to your computer if you run Windows XP. Epson refers you to a patch in the CD if you recieve connectivity error messages. I loaded the patch and the scanner still locked up.

J. Havness, Amazon
11 April 2005
  • Summary: Had it for two days of misery. 1st s/ware CD didn't work, called Epson on MY DIME !! 5-7 days to get one, took 3 hrs to install the 2nd one. Listen Up : THREE and ONE-HALF minutes to scan/copy a simple 100 word B&W text doc ...I flat out couldn't believe it.

HORRIBLE!! Horrible! horrible......

A. Peltier, Amazon
27 January 2005
  • Summary: It's been many years since I've worked with such an unreliable peice of hardware. Of the 10 times I've tried to use it, it has only functioned properly once. Changing cables, restarting scanner, restaring computer, re-installing software.... nothing.

Epson 2480 PHOTO

George R. Ahearn, Amazon
8 January 2005
  • Summary: The manufacturer claims this product will install on Windows 2000. Eventually it will, however the installation software fails to notice that a file it attempts to copy to is in a 'Read only' state. This causes the setup process to fail with a nearly useless error message.
