Good Scanner, Poor Software

.M., Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: I bought this a few years ago to scan 4x5 negatives, and the scan quality is very good. The software stopped working. I reinstalled one of the versions that comes with it (there's Epson Scan and SilverFast), but it's functionality is falling apart again.

Highly Recommend!

J. Gusky, Amazon

  • Summary: I shoot black & white 35 mm. Previously relied upon either a Polaroid SprintScan 4000 or drum scans. The 4870 produces gorgeous scans and is easy to use. I'm very happy with my purchase. SilverFast has proved to be a dissapointment for use with B&W negs.

Just Buy It; You'll Love It!

Elisha Granger, Amazon

  • Summary: I finally have my perfect duo for scanning and editing. I am a "peripheral junkie" and have found a dream come true in this scanner. Yes, you will pay more but you will not be disappointed. I buy scanners at least yearly, but I won't do this in 2005 because I have found a wonderful product.

Epson Perfection 4870 PRO Scanner w/ VueScan Software

Tommy Wright, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: I have this scanner and it performs flawlessly. I use the VueScan program to scan, and it is by far the best scan program on the market. You can download it from the site. It is pricey at around 80 bucks, but it includes lifetime updates, and it has been worth every penny.

Epson fails me, once again.

Nelson, Amazon
8 July 2008
  • Summary: Against my better judgement, based on prior experience with Epson scanners and partly due to the rave reviews for this piece, I bought one new years ago and lo and behold, I attempt to scan some old transparencies and it fails to give me anything more than multiple annoying error messages.

Epson 4870 Photo Pro

Wade G., Newegg
2 August 2004
  • Summary: Dynamite scanner! For those who need a flatbed for both film and documents, this one is it. Yes, the 4800 dpi is good, but what makes this ("Pro") really great is the software that is packaged with it.
