  • Summary: Got this for a gift and it just keeps churning away, spitting out good copies and good photo scans. Can't say it any better.

slow, but great for 3-D (small sculptures)

  • Summary: This scanner is slow and it's so slow that I'm looking to buy a newer faster one, but for the original purpose I bought it for, 3-D objects, specifically small sculptures, it works better than any of the others that I had tried. I imagine it would scan things like flowers and whatever else that isn't flat beautifully. I now just want to scan photos and this is way too slow and the software isn't very helpful; few choices.

  • Summary: Epson 2580 photo scanner is the best ever made if you own slides you need converted to a digital format. Also, the negatives 35 mm auto feed is 2nd to none. I highly recommend this product.

Excellent for Prints and Slides

  • Summary: I use this to produce quality images of 300dpi - 600dpi for use in professional print media. One neat feature of this scanner is you can enlarge a small photo by several percent and it still looks great! The quality is excellent. It can only scan one slide at a time however. Other scanners usually can scan up to 4 slides at a time. Experienced no disappointments in my usage of it. Works well along side of Adobe Photoshop software.

I have loved it for almost 2 years now!

  • Summary: I bought this scanner to scan old 35mm negatives and it works beautifully. Yes it is slow but that is the beauty of the automatic feeder. I simply load the negative, go do something else for 5 minutes, then return and I have 4 nice digital scans. I then do some routine photo enhancing in MS PictureIt and I end up with digital photos that are better than my original prints!

Epson is nice but won't last long

  • Summary: I got this scanner for Christmas last year. It was refurbished and only cost $80. Besides the price, I liked the negative feeder feature- a strip of 6 35mm negs can be fed in and the little motor whirrs and pulls in the strip to do one at a time. Pretty slick- Look Ma, no hands! I set it up and began scanning with no problem. Then, after 4 months and 500 6 frame film strips, the feeder belts began to slip.

I'm underwhelmed with the Epson 2580

tonga, Amazon

  • Summary: I run a graphics studio, and use a scanner several times a day for photos, printed material, even small items such as jewelry that require some depth of field from the scanner. Because we have so much dedicated software that runs native in OS9, we're holding out on the Big Upgrade to OSX as long as we can. Last year I researched a new scanner to buy while we still had a choice of OS9 driver scanners, finally selecting an HP Scanjet 4400c.

What a Great Scanner

David T. Vogt, Amazon
27 December 2005
  • Summary: I was scanning in 35mm with my HP 5530 which HP so notabable disctontinued 2 weeks after my purchase. Worked great until I ran across a project with my Aunt who handed me well over 2000+ negatives. It wasn't something I really wanted to do, but 30+ years of negatives was exciting. Some big memories have emerged.

Great scanner for the price

Evelyn C "evwings", Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this scanner for eight months and have had no problems. The soft ware was easy to install and is very user friendly. This is my fourth scanner in nine years and I find I like it the best of them all. The first two broke down immediately after the warranties were up and would cost more to fix than replace. That is saying something because one was over $300. The third was good, but not like this one.
