Quality scanner, great value

  • Summary: I read a few reviews about this product before I bought it. Most of the reviews were positive and this scanner has won best in class with various magazines. I have to say I was not disappointed in any way. Sure, it's not the world's most attractive scanner, in fact it's on the ugly side of unattractive, however it does what it's supposed to. It scans at an incredible quality, and does it fast. I have yet to see a better scanner on the market for under $100.

Good scanner, sorry software

Drew Linginfelter, Amazon

  • Summary: The scanner is a great piece of hardware, but the included software, TwainScan L, is very limited. The user can't easily adjust scan resolution or control brightness or contrast. Default settings are quite dark and must be adjusted with software after scanning.

Nice little scanner - very good value.

  • Summary: Having owned and installed many scanners, I wanted a new simple scanner for my private office. The Epson 610 installed instantly with the included usb cable, and I was scanning within 5 minutes. It's fast, and the bundled twain driver works well. Even the basic OCR software works well for basic word processing - but you might want to install a high-end OCR software like Textbridge Pro for more options.

Nightmare Alley!

Paul R. Hamel, Amazon
15 August 2000
  • Summary: I ordered and received this scanner from Amazon.com. It was received in good order, and I attempted to install it the day of receipt, without any success. I was then forced to call EPSON technical support for help. It took me 3 days and nearly 2 hours on the phone with these technicians and they were not able to resolve my problem. It turned out that I had a bad unit delivered to me.

Best performance for a scanner anywhere near the price range

R. Mullin, Amazon
8 July 2000
  • Summary: Wow. Great scanner. It was easy to install...the USB connection is simple and fast. The software is great. The OCR feature is amazing....very rarely an error. The software allows you to drag the scanned document onto an icon corresponding with the application you want the document imported into, and then it converts it accordingly. Very impressive! When scanning pictures and graphics, even at the lower resolutions, the quality is amazing.

Epson 610 lives up to expectations

  • Summary: Went the HP route first. Couldn't get it to work. Tried everyting. Punted! Bought the Espson and fired it up on the 1st try. Have had it for about 3 months now and coupled with an HP p1000 printer, I can duplicate, and I mean duplicate pictures. Scaned a professional 8x10 of my little boy to near perfection. The Twain software is great. Only down side is at times I need to place some thick stock paper behind the picture so I don't scan "through" it.

Simple set-up. Great quality scans

  • Summary: A scanner was my first requirement after getting my iMac--needed to put pictures out to relatives. This scanner set up easily w/o any glitches. I was scanning within 5 minutes after taking it out of the box. The quality of the scanned pictures is great, even on low scan settings. I've received compliments from friends on the quality of the softcopy pics.

  • Excerpt: "I've had this scanner for a few years and have reamined impressed with its solid performance. As with everything i buy i thoroughly researched this scanner before walking into the shop and was convinced that it was the best around for under a hundred quid. It has a USB 1.1 interface (the accepted standard for this class) and with a 1,5ghz CPU performs more than adequately with little time spent waiting around once the scan has finished. Colour depth ...
  • Pros: Quick and easy to use
  • Cons: Not very stylish, large

  • Excerpt: "I bought this scanner about 3 or 4 years ago. It is still one of the best value for money and quality scanners around. I have had no problems what so ever with it and I use it a great deal. It will scan almost anything from photos to a picture off of a t-shirt. It will also take bulky items as the lid will pull up on its hinges to just under an inch. I put an encyclopedia (3 inches thick) in it to scan a picture for my daughters homework, I just ...
