Summary: I'm glad that some people have had a good experience with this scanner, but I am not one. I own an Epson Perfection 2450 Photo scanner and have been very happy with it. I thought it's "big brother" would make a nice, economical additon to the office where I work. Boy was I wrong.
Summary: I am so sorry that I did not look on Amazon.com first before I purchased this scanner last month. It is cheaper here then what I paid for it through another company. Besides that I also had to pay a 6% state sales tax. Believe me it does what it says it can do.
And the best got even better...$100 rebate until 12/31/03

Summary: I read all the reviews here and have nothing more of value to add. It is an awesome scanner, Amazon had one of the best prices around and they delivered it free! I had it unboxed and connected to my Macintosh via firewire in less than 20 minutes (including software installs).
Summary: Like several other people have reported, my scanner arrived with dust inside the sealed case. This is totally unacceptable for a high-resolution photo scanner (or any other scanner for that matter). I called Epson and they advised me to return the unit to Amazon.
Great Scanner, Easy Setup, Kudos to Amazon for their Service

Summary: I bought this scanner after a lot of research into scanners within my price range (under $500). This scanner's predecessor, the Epson Perfection 2450, consistently came out on top in user reviews. So, I came to Amazon, and found they had the best price on this newly released model.
Summary: Recently, I purchased the 3200 Photo. Initial setup was fairly painless, but after the first attempted scan, there were some obvious issues. The first scan had white "flecks"(dust, when scanned at 600dpi or larger looks like flecks) that covered the scan.
Summary: The driver for this Epson 3200 scanner is built on PowerPC architecture. While it will work for some applications on an Intel based Mac, there are many Intel based applications with which this scanner will NOT work on a Mac, unless Epson updates the scanner driver.
Summary: While Silverfast SE seems to serve no particular purpose, simply using Epson's "automatic" mode produces incredibly accurate duplicate colors of original transparencies (transparencies as seen on daylite box, scans seen on Synchmaster 192n, automatic default prints on Epson 2200 pigment printer.
Summary: This is an affordable professional scanner that rivals the quality of any negative scanner I have ever used. Its software is great, and is very straight forward. You will not go wrong with this scanner. I am a professional photographer, and have now made this the only scanner I use.
Summary: My objective in purchasing this scanner was to be able to place a scanned photo on the same page as some text. After several sessions,I have not found a solution. Scanning is not the problem; rather, sending a scanned image to another application such as word so that one can combine a word document...
