Nice Scanner

floodo1, Ebay
6 January 2010
  • Summary: Works well. Good resolution, relatively quick. Only real downside is that its pretty loud when you're previewing (at least if you have "fast preview" enabled). during the actual scan it's not loud because the scanning head isn't moving so fast.

Epson Perfection 3490 Photo Scanner

Douglas O. Johnson "Gazoo50", Amazon

  • Summary: works great, once I took the time out to figure things out even the the quick buttons on the front of the scanner worked but its not intuitive. So its 4 stars cause I can't give it a 4 1/2

Great price/Value

  • Summary: This is a very good and economical scanner. It is much more reliable than the two Visoneer Scanners I previously owned. They were always losing their connections midway through a scan, at boot up, etc. I can count on this machine.

Epson 3490 Scanner

G. Vogel "birdy176", Amazon
23 February 2006
  • Summary: As typical from Amazon, delivery was excellent. Product worked right out of the box. Excellent software included and due to TWAIN, can be used with any application that allows access to scanning. Large and small photos, gray scale or color, scan perfectly.

Nice Scanner

G. Usher "Big Dog", Amazon
29 January 2006
  • Summary: I wanted to make a DVD slideshow with the family slides. Some have faded and have mildew. This scanner fixes the faded ones nicely but has trouble with the ones that are too dark. It is slow, it took 12 hours to scan 150 slides. I still have about 500 to go. This scanner is rather noisy too.

Looking For More!

  • Summary: Works great, easy install. I've gotten used to my ultra thin Canon, so it is a little on the bulky side to me, but not too bad. The only real complaint I have is the lack of options on the negative scans. It only scan's 35mm film.

  • Summary: After reading numerous positive reviews of this scanner, both on Amazon and elsewhere, I decided to get it to do film negative scanning at home. So far I've been very happy with it. I just have a few warnings/caveats for others: 1. Having a cat, I have major dust problems in the house.
