DO NOT BUY THIS SCANNER IF YOU USE A MAC!!!

M. Allen, Amazon
26 June 2005
  • Summary: while this scanner claims to be compatible with mac os x (i tried to use the scanner with both 10.3.8 and 10.3.9), it absolutely does not work. when i downloaded new drivers for it from the epson website (while using 10.3.9) it caused an unknown program to run all the time--it was epson smart panel--and i had to buy norton disk doctor software to fix it. the software can cause, in the words of the norton disk doctor, "major problems" on your hard drive.

Hardware? Software horrible

H. T. Nelson, Amazon

  • Summary: Don't want to get into all the details here but suffice it to say I have spent about 12 hours trying to get the bundled software to recognize the twain driver. Third party software vuesoft and silverfree work fine. A search of newsgroups and photo sites shows that I am not the only one with this problem. You buy a scanner and are dependent on the software working (just like a printer or computer). Scanner drivers are propriatary so if they don't work you are out of luck.
