The reviews were showing as good. Unfortunately

  • Summary: When I purchased this scanner for our office I went solely on the reviews. The reviews were showing as good. Unfortunately, it has been horrible since the day it arrived. You know it is not going to go well when you stay on the phone all day with Epson Support just trying to get it setup. Very slow.

Not for Photos

  • 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

Paper jam, paper jam, paper jam

  • 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.

What a mistake

  • 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.

Ivory-billed woodpeckers sound better than this...

  • 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.
