Won't scann entire platter.

  • Summary: Although the Epson Perfection 2480 Photo (this one came along with Multi Phoot Feeder) keeps colors fairly accurate, I am disapointed when it comes to scanning photos, papers and the like on the flatbed. In this case, the area scanned is smaller than the glass plate indicates.

Really Good Scanner for about 18 months

Robert J. Johnston, Amazon
25 July 2006
  • Summary: For a while, this 2480 was a really good scanner and buy for light usage. Now after 18 months of ownership, there are cloudy markings on the underside of the glass from 2 to 4 inches in that makes that part of the glass unusable.

  • Summary: My 6 year old trusty Umax scanner was starting to show its age, so i looked for a new scanner that had good reviews. The Epson Perfection 2480 seemed to be one of the best rated. I use my scanner a few times a week for scanning graphic art.

Good for light use

T. Milke "tmilke1", Amazon
17 March 2005
  • Summary: For a $100 scanner, I didn't expect high quality scans. What I did get out of it was a lot better than I expected. Most of the detail in photographs and documents came out pretty good. Hey, it does photos, slides, negatives, and works great with my Mac. That sold me right there.

Good scanner, but not for film.

  • Summary: This scanner was excellent for scanning pictures and images, but did poorly with 35mm negatives. The color was dull and had a brown tint to it. In comparison to the Canon Lide80, the film scan was terrible. This is a GREAT scanner if you do not wish to scan film.

  • Excerpt: Kaufanreiz: ************ Eigenlich keiner, da ich das Gerät beruflich nutze. Installation: ************* Einfacher gehts nicht. Software aufspielen, Scanner anschließen, USB-Kabel mit dem Rechner verbinden und schon gehts los.
  • Pros: Durchlichteinheit für Dias
  • Cons: Laut, etwas langsam, externes Netzteil

Freude an neuem Scanner (mit Einschränkungen)

haslistef, Ciao
14 April 2005
  • Excerpt: Nachdem ich lange durchgehalten habe, sollte nun meine alter Agfa Snapscan 310 mit SCSI-Anschluss einem neuen Scanner weichen. Nach einigem Stöbern nach Tests und Preisvergleichen entschied ich mich für den Epson Perfection 2480 Photo. Kollegen waren mit ihren Epson-Scannern zufrieden!
  • Pros: gute Software, ordentliche Scanleistung bei Fotos, preiswert
  • Cons: Software nur auf C :  installierbar, USB - Anschluss, Geräusch

Loin de la Perfection !

  • Summary: Chose promise, chose due. Parmi le panel de produits informatiques passés au crible par Lovedido, il manquait quelque chose d’essentiel, ou du moins de très largement répandu, à savoir le scanner. Manque de chance, c’est sans doute le matériel qui m’ai le plus déçu.
  • Pros: Bonne résolution, design, quelques logiciels astucieux, support diapo
  • Cons: Traitement des couleurs, qualité d'assemblage, incohérences du mode d'emploi, usine à gaz de logiciels, manque d'options et d'ergonomie .  .  .
