Worth every penny

Budman, B&H Photo
14 August 2011
  • 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.

Easy to use

Terri, rakuten

  • Summary: This product does everything it promises to transform slides (from the 70's) into beautiful digital photos. It has other talents that I have yet to explore. It is amazingly easy to use, and has inspired me to create a photo book to share with siblings.

Does what it says

Knest, B&H Photo
25 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Works as intended. Great time saver if you do multi-page scanning. Just load the sheets and let it do the rest. The only con is I now have the original scanner lid to store. Perhaps it will sell on an online auction site.

Perfection

Anonymous, Newegg
3 January 2010
  • Summary: I spent about 4 hours setting up and trying all possible software tools and combinations thereof. I kept separate folders with the results for easy comparisons. I found it best to use Digital Ice on all problematic slides, including the few that needed color restoration.
  • Pros: Clean, simple shipping carton with all items included as advertised. Quick Guide is well conceived and easily understandable. Everything worked as promised without one extra step. For the few slides that required it, Digital Ice is AMAZING. Worth the price of admission alone. Slides from 1949 for...
  • Cons: Having an extra scanner besides my all-in-one Brother (from New Egg), which works fine as a scanner for everything BUT slides. Although, I am sure I will find some old photos where Digital Ice on the Epson will come in handy. I will store the Epson like one would store a slide projector, as one n...

Dandy!

CAROLYN M., Newegg
12 August 2009
  • Summary: Owned this since March 2008. Used on PC (Win XP), Powerbook Pro (10.4), and iMac (G4 700, 10.4). I've hauled the scanner from room to room and have never had "transportation issues"... until I moved last month and someone let it fall out of their car.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, particularly color quality. Epson's software is easy and simple to use, even in advanced mode - stand-alone or called from Photoshop. Speed is good factoring quality of resulting image and price of the unit. I've never had a 30 minute scan; I believe that may be more a fu...
  • Cons: It is definitely not a "backpack" scanner and will own some real-estate on your desk. The underscan/oversized glass noted by other reviewers is an annoyance which does require adjustment to your placement technique. When accessed thru Photoshop, scanning software completes the requested scan then...

Great for OCR Projects

rakuten
2 February 2009
  • Summary: I needed a scanner that had OCR capability. I have to translate a good number of documents from foreign languages, and I only have hard copies of some of these documents, so using the scanner with the ABBYY software (OCR) that came with it does the job very well.
