slow & noisy with basic software

Mr. Robb Warren, Amazon
30 January 2006
  • Summary: I replaced a 5+ year old Acer which bit the dust, and am I sorry it did. Pluses: The Epson can scan slides and negatives; can scan multiple pix and "separate" them. Minuses: You press the 'copy' button, and again, and again, cuz you think nothing's happening - then 18 seconds after you pressed it the first time the copy program pops onto the screen (and I have 3Ghz with 1MB RAM)!

Death after 3 scans

Judy, Amazon
20 January 2006
  • Summary: Initially I was very impressed. I had the scanner hooked up and the software installed in no time. I immediately scanned about 3 photos just to make sure it was working and I was surprised at how quickly it did them and good they turned out. Two weeks later after not touching the thing, I tried to scan something and it refused to work. After a half hour on the phone with Epson support, it was determined that it was a hardware issue and I needed to return the product.

A okay piece of junk!

SweetDaddy "Darkmaster", Amazon
16 January 2006
  • Summary: A ok piece of junk! It does an excellent job of scanning images, Photos, magazines, etc. However you could buy a cheaper scanner to achieve the same results, any scanner with a 4800 X 4800 DPI will yield very good quality scans. This scanner is more expensive because it also offers the ability to scan slides and film. A conventional image scanner uses a light that travels under a glass surface where the image is placed, much like a copier.

Gutes Bildergebnis, Soft- und Hardware mittelmaß

  • Summary: Der EPSON Perfection 3490 liefert ein sehr gutes Scanergebnis. Das war's aber auch schon. Gerät und Treiberausstattung lassen sehr zu wünschen übrig. Die Software ist langsam, Einstellungen liefern unvorhersagbare Ergebnisse, da nicht beschrieben ist, welche Auswirkungen Einstellungen wie z. B. "Zeitschrift" oder "Foto" tatsächlich haben.
  • Pros: Gutes Bildergebnis
  • Cons: Soft -  und Hardware mittelmaß
