Pros: Excellent. I finally got back to trusty brands and avoid the new influx of cheap junk. Epson gets the job done in spades. The software is top notch. NO compatability issues. No breakdowns. No behavior shifts over time.
Summary: Bought it to scan some old slides and negatives. Seems to fit this purpose well. plan to scan some old prints and our professionsal photos. Plan to use it to scan some important docs as well.
Pros: Scan quality, can get it working even the front panel buttons without 500mb of junky bloated memory resident software (i.e. HP scanners). Twain support and scanning modes work for all experience levels. Handles slides and negatives well.
Cons: Not really. I wish it where faster scanning at 3200dpi but they are all slow at this quality unless you are going with e a dedicated slide scanner.
Summary: I can scan a photo, then scan the negative, and can't tell the difference between them at all. The ability to scan to PDF with only provided software is wonderful. As an amateur outdoor photographer, I need the best I can get, for the best price, and with this unit, I know I made the right choice.
Pros: Speed, wonderful quality of images, proper film negative scanning, ability to scan multiple images into different files at once.
Summary: Lots of extra feature that I haven't figure out yet. In time I will
Pros: Excellent scanner for a low price. Highly recommend this as an everyday uses scanner. Newegg is the best place to shop with the best prices, it will be the only place for be to purchase computer related items. As always the shipping is fast, even to Alaska where I live. Thanks NEWEGG.
Summary: if you get one, get it here...for my work (kinkos) we ordered them through the company..we get a heckofa discount on stuff, but this scanner was still more expensive there tahn here.
Pros: Just got a couple of these for work to replace our old 1670 and a broken 2480...Works great. We've been using epson for years and the scanners work great. The slide scanner is nice too...works great.
Summary: Great Scanner and a great price! Newegg does it again! The quality of the scans are very detailed and the cost of the unit is not bad at all! Enlarged images with no detail loss at all. I am very glad to have bought this scanner
EPSON Perfection Photo scanner is an excellent buy!

Summary: I have hundreds of slides that need to be catalogued and saved from fading to red. Now, with this scanner, the slides are being turned into digital images that can be saved on a CD without any trouble. Color, clarity and detail is terrific. This is a good tool and does what it says it can do.
