failed to work after three times

rekoj, Amazon
7 March 2014
  • Summary: I know it was used but I expexted it to function for at least 6 months. I am marking this site down as I'll never buy from this dealer again. The unit was stripped of everything but the power adapter and croaked after a very short time

Great scanner

Gerald McKibben, Amazon
13 June 2011
  • Summary: I have owned mine for several years and am pleased with it. It's still hard to believe that you can get this kind of quality for the price - I believe it's cheaper now than when I bought mine. I scan everything from book pages, B&W and color prints, and negatives, to transparencies, and it does a great job.

Epson Scanner a Home Run

packetrat978, Ebay
11 November 2009
  • Summary: I am not a computer savvy user, and dread buying any computer gear. This scanner was a blessed exception to the usual dead computer gear. It did not seem to start out well. The scanner was used, came with NO instructions, NO cables, and NO software. And I had NO TROUBLE AT ALL! The EPSON website had the software for easy download, the cables were no problem (I had one as it turns our, in a box of compujunk) and in less than 5 minutes the scanner was working perfectly.

Finally scanning photos

shojifox, Ebay
14 October 2009
  • Summary: Pro: Handles 35 mm slides and negatives, and 120/220 medium format negatives and unmounted transparencies. Test scans of B&W negatives looked great. Quick response to my installation issues from Epson tech support. Painfully simple solution, the kind I'd kick myself for not thinking about on any other day. Cons: Not a con of the scanner, really - setup was complicated because I have a damaged USB connector on my rear I/O panel, and didn't know it.

Epson Perfection 4180

oldbluelion, Ebay
1 July 2009
  • Summary: This scanner is perfect for me. I have a lot of negatives and slides from different formats, but not a lot of knowledge of scanning. It is easy and relatively quick. The color correcting programs are also easy. Strongly recommend it.

VERY slow scans. GREAT QUALITY!

bluetigerflash, Ebay
23 March 2009
  • Summary: The scan quality is amazing. The film scanning (including 120/220) is very convenient. High quality scans (around 1200 DPI takes 15 minutes) are VERY slow.

It may have been a great scanner

Used to be great, but now an anchor....

Viper__40, Amazon
19 March 2008
  • Summary: I used this scanner for over two years without as much as a hickup, it was much better than the huge HP flatbed I had before. Then I reimaged my HD, reloaded XP (the same I had before)and updated to SP2 from the microsoft website. The packaged software "Epson Scan" no longer functions. I scan using the copy utility but nothing else. Their support site led me through the same routine many times, removing, re-installing, direct connect over and over again.

Once more in unison: "mine broke with no warning"

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 August 2007
  • Summary: Bought this refurbished from the Epson website. It worked fine for about a year (light use), then whammo, one fine morning the pulley mechanism failed. A well conceived device but poorly manufactured.

works till it dies

R. Harmacinski "notqytryt", Amazon
21 December 2006
  • Summary: the problem with all epson home scanners are they are made chaeaply... they work fine till one day you turn it on and you get the flashing red light. cancel cristmas the scanner is dead. had this happen with a 3170 and 4180. no warning just quits. but when they work they are great. I took both of these scanners apart and they are built identical to each other. so im asuming the only difference is in the circuitry. as far as working colors are good but ive seen better.
