Saves a lot of time

  • Excerpt: I have a lot of documents that I copy in batches and this document feeder makes that task pretty easy. I scan a stack (2-30 sheets) and turn them into a .pdf. Works well, uses a fraction of the scanner bed. Paper wraps around a roller and passes over the CCD. Scans do not seem quite as sharp as if they were on the full bed, but great for what I want at 150 dpi.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Improves Scanner Function
  • Cons: Not For Photographs, Scans Not Quite As Sharp

Not for Ancient or Odd sized Negatives Epson does not provide the Holders

  • Summary: The scanner works fine. The instructions for us who are older and not technical gurus is lacking. What happened to the good old 1, 2 3 instructions. Where is there a "definition" of technical terms located? There are not enough of the proper negative holders in the correct sizes to scan the older negatives from the 1930's, 1940's or 1950's. Epson has catered to the 1960's + film and slides. We need holders for 620, 126 and Box camera film.

Does what I want, no real problems

  • Excerpt: I already had the Epson V500 Flatbed which worked well. But I had stacks of personal paper records -- mortgage documents, insurance documents, full-page service records that I wanted to scan and then shred. The ADF was trivial to install. Unfortunately, no drivers existed for the Mac OS I was running (preview copy of Mountain Lion). I do run parallels on the machine and was able to install the windows 7 drivers and the scanner worked like a charm.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Improves Scanner Function
  • Cons: No OS Lion Support

Auto Feeder

  • Summary: This product is fine, though it jams pretty easily. I was hoping for something that could work without supervision, but this takes some watching if you're scanning anything other than regular paper.

Good Add On

  • Excerpt: I have used this product for a couple of weeks now. I really like being able to put a bunch of papers into the feeder and letting the scanner and computer do the work. It would take forever to scan things one at a time. It is a time saver. I am still trying out software to compliment the ADF.

  • Summary: Great unit which replaced my original 4490 with burnt out lamp. Cheaper to buy new then replace old lamp assembly. Since software and drivers were already loaded, just plug n go! No brainer!

Not for Photos

17 September 2011
  • Excerpt: While this is sold as an accessory to the V500 Photo Scanner, it cannot auto feed photos without jamming - if looking for an autofeeder to stack and scan photos - do not purchase this item.
  • Cons: Not Functional

It works for film and should last longer than the better scanning kodak.

  • Summary: The one I bought on ebay was damaged so I went to Amazon. This scanner is passable, but not great. I was using this for scanning 35mm film negative to electronic files. It does automatically convert the negative to positive, but the clarity is only so so. I had a Kodak 35mm scanner that took much better quality scans, but couldn't feed well and developed a hot pixel streak. This prompted me to purchase the 4490. The Epson is also slow.
