3 February 2015
Summary: I have been using my Epson perfection 4990i photo scanner for a number of years now. It continues to perform flawlessly giving very high publication quality scans of slides, negatives and color negatives.
Summary: I bought this scanner based on the number of positive reviews that it had received. It is a good photo scanner, but I'm not so sure a great photo scanner. Perhaps it's just Epson's default settings, but I'm not a professional so I place a lot of faith on it being right 'out of the box'.
Summary: This is my fourth scanner, and with it, I can do practically everything. with very hard work, I scanned my 14000 slides with an older scanner - with this one I could have done it more that twice as fast.
Summary: After two weeks of trying to implement e-mail instructions from Epson, this scanner still refused to work. I returned it to seller and was informed it was phased out by Epson. Good! Now no one else will suffer the frustrations of trying to get this scanner to operate.
Summary: This might be more than you were planning to spend on a scanner, but you won't be sorry. Seems well made and produces outstanding scans. I have been using it for photos and some quite old 35mm slides and have been very pleased with the quality, speed and ease of use.
Summary: I've been looking for a way to scan slides and negatives and tried an Acer ScanWit a few years ago. But it was SCSI, could only scan four slides or one negative strip at a time and removing dust and scratches from the resulting images was really tedious.
Summary: To summarize, I just have to say, this device scans perfectly! If your looking to get your money's worth and get excellent quality scans, then look no further. Trust me, you WON'T be disappointed!
Summary: I purchased the Epson 4990 after reading good comments about the quality of film scanning. My primary purpose was scanning 5x7 and 4x5 B+W film and it has been great. Very impressed with the dust remoavl feature and when unsharp mask is applied in photoshop the sharpness is great.
