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. Aligning any object to either side of the glass plate (using it's borders as the aligment tool) will unavoidably cut of part of the scanned image (as shown in the customer photos I uploaded.

Really Good Scanner for about 18 months

Robert J. Johnston, Amazon
26 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. I really like the software and quality of scans, and I am thinking about buying another Epson 2480 if they can be had for under $99.

Casts shadows

rubywells, Amazon

  • 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. I have found this scanner to be disappointing compared to my old Umax. I find I get cast shadows around my images, so much so, that I took it in for repairs after having it only 3 months.

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. Not everything is perfect though. When using the text "interpreter", it has a tendency to turn blemishes (fold lines, scratches) on the paper, into strange text, and unreadable ascii characters.

Good scanner, but not for film.

M. L., Amazon
1 November 2004
  • 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.

Freude an neuem Scanner (mit Einschränkungen)

haslistef, Ciao
14 April 2005
  • Summary: 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! Ich erstand ihn in einem Berliner Computergeschäft zu einem guten Preis (90.
  • Pros: gute Software, ordentliche Scanleistung bei Fotos, preiswert

Loin de la Perfection !

lovedido, Ciao
22 March 2005
  • 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. J’avais auparavant, ou plutôt mes parents avaient un Epson Perfection 1650 Photo.
  • 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 .  .  .
