Eh.

N. Caputo, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: Back in the day, Epson rocked the scanner world. This is still a very good product, however, it is probably more cost-effective these days to have a professional do your negatives scanning.

OK -- not very intuitive and poorly supported software.

John Moore "John Bob", Amazon
7 October 2010
  • Summary: I've owned this scanner for about two years. I bought it because it also offered a document feeder for photos and business cards, as well as negative and slide capabilities. The document feeder sporadically works and jams often -- not worth the effort. Also, the software provided was on a CD and works ONLY with Windows XP. While Epson provides updated software, another five companies also provided software for the scanner.

Problems with print driver

Charles E. Bryson "Ed Bryson", Amazon
21 December 2009
  • Summary: This scanner is fast and scans well when it works. Problem is I have to reinstall the drivers every time I use it. However, the last time I went to use it even installing the drivers wouldn't start it. Real frustrating.

Good scans but defective CCD

Sportynyc "sportynyc", Amazon
10 March 2005
  • Summary: The unit I received appeared to have a defective CCD imaging system. The scan quality was pretty good, but every scan had 2 vertical red lines that went from top to bottom. Couldn't get rid of it no matter what I tried. Unfortunately, have to return to Amazon. Will probably try a different Epson model scanner next time around.

Okay for a CHEAP scanner

Film lover, Amazon
10 March 2005
  • Summary: Epson was clearly going for features over quality with this scanner. You don't need to get out a ruler to notice that the images produced are distored. Vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines are all wobbly. On my unit the right inch of the image is noticeably darker than the rest of the image. Colors are inconsistent to, with the center being bluer and the sides begin greener.

Slow scanner, good if you don't have a ton to scan

Keith A. Harvey "c3pokah", Amazon
10 March 2005
  • Summary: The Epson Perfection 2480 was my third attempt at finding a perfect scanner for my needs. I'm trying to convert all of my childhood, my wife's childhood, and my other family pictures to digital for archiving and family distribution. Some of these pictures are in 35mm color negative, some in positive slides, some in some small format negative, and some in old photos.
