Not for Photos

photo copier, B&H Photo
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

AUTO DOCUMENT FEEDER FOR PERFECTION 4490/V500

Archulet, PCNation
9 November 2009
  • Summary: It''s pricy. I want it to work, so I''m trying to do some research to see if there is something I''m doing wrong. May return.
  • Pros: Haven''t found something to love about this one yet.
  • Cons: Very slow scanner feed. papers come out crooked so you have to watch a large stack to prevent papers from being mixed up and falling all over.

What a mistake

Ken, rakuten
22 June 2008
  • Summary: I hate this scanner. I have tried several weeks to scan unmounted slides and negatives and it keeps trimming them. I have turned off the trimming, tried different settings and continues not to get the original full size of the negative and unmounted slide. It can't even see low key lighting or underexposed exposures in my negatives. I m going to get rid of this as soon as possible and buy a Canon scanner. This thing has been a wast of my money and time.

AUTO DOCUMENT FEEDER FOR PERFECTION 4490/V500

Anonymous, PCNation
2 January 2008
  • Summary: It is probably a good feeder but there are absolutely no instructions with it. I have had it for 2 weeks, have not been able to figure out how it works, nor could an equipment dealer figure it out and he sells office equipment.
  • Pros: No Comment.
  • Cons: No Comment.

Paper jam, paper jam, paper jam

Jennifer C. Green, Amazon
17 November 2006
  • Summary: I bought this to scan in the bazillion photos I have and I may as well have bought a cheap photo scanner. The reason I didnt was so I could do a bunch at once and leave it rather than feed them individually. Well I am pretty much having to feed them individually b/c they keep jamming. Just got it, sending it back!!

**Poor Qualities, good qualities**

C. Fristad, Amazon
17 November 2006
  • Summary: Placed book on scanner put lid down, and glass detached I'm a student at an art college and we have 10 of these scanners in all of the labs. I am an animation major and use the scanner a lot to scan in neg.'s and reams of hand drawn animation on 8.5 x 11 paper, so I am well versed in the use of this model and previous models of the Epson scanners.

Ivory-billed woodpeckers sound better than this...

Cathy Johnson (Kate) "artist/writer/naturalist", Amazon
1 June 2006
  • Summary: I bought one of these and the first one made the "horrible racheting noise" another reviewer mentioned, and from that point made striped and distorted scans. I thought it had been damaged in shipping, and made arrangements to return it, and ordered another. Things happen. The new one arrived today, and I installed it. It scanned beautifully and perfectly...the first 7 pieces of art. Then the horrible noise started up again, and I have stripes instead of artwork.
