Excerpt: I recently bought an Epson Perfection 4490 Photo scanner because I wanted to upgrade to a higher resolution scanner and I wanted one that would let me do high-resolution scan of the hundreds medium-format transparencies that I have from 25 years of travelling around the world. And I have to say that Iï¿½m not disappointed with this scanner ï¿½s performance.
You could pay more, but I doubt the results would be much better.

Summary: Purchased this scanner to scan 35mm and Medium Format film. Scan quality is great, if somewhat slow. Software problems reported on other reviews have been non-existent running Windows Vista Home. For less than $100 paid on auction, couldn't be happier.
Excerpt: The installation of the feeder on the scanner is easy and totally problem free. With this product I'm able to scan letter format in one piece. This is very important to me and saves a ton of time. You simply place a document of a stack of documents face up on the feeder press scan in the program you're using and voila you're done. Most scanners on the market cannot scan letter format if they don't have the feeder.
Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Improves Scanner Function, Scan documents in a stack, Scan letter format
Excerpt: I had the V500 Photo Scanner and used it basically for photos. I stated to scan old files and it was to slow to scan each piece of paper individually. I ordered the ADF and was surprised how fast and how easy it was to use. I completed a three hour job in a half hour. I would highly recommend this product.
Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Improves Scanner Function
Summary: I already have a printer/scanner but I have literally thousands of slides & negatives that need to be scanned. Read reviews of other manufactuers scanners, but feel I got exactly what I wanted/needed. Only scanned slides so far, but they've all turned out excellent. The only down side about the scanner is the amount of time needed to scan 4 slides--21 to 24 minutes. During this time I do something else.
