Good All around scanner

Anonymous, Newegg
18 July 2007
  • Pros: Great price! Works perfect for photos, negatives, and slides. Software is easy to use and stable. Replacing a Canon Scanner with software that drove me nuts.
  • Cons: None as far as I can tell.

perfect for my use.

  • Summary: To start with Amazon blew me away with delivery. Ordered one afternoon and it was delivered next AM at 9:30. The scanner itself, was so easy to use, copies of perfect quality.

For the love of God, do NOT buy this scanner

Bill, Amazon
18 June 2007
  • Summary: This scanner is a perfect example of "you get what you pay for." It's a cheap piece of crap. I suppose it's okay if you want to scan a snapshot and do nothing to it--but if you want to try the various settings to do something "professional," prepare to be astounded. And confounded.

MAC USERS BE WARNED!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS SCANNER!!!!!!!

Y. Beauvais, Amazon
17 June 2007
  • Summary: The software that comes with this scanner claims to be Mac compatible. It really is not. This scanner simply DOES NOT WORK with a MAc OS system, at least not with my Intel 10.4.9. The EPSPON SCAN software does not boot up automatically.

Great Value for a Very Good Scanner

R. McAnally, Amazon
16 June 2007
  • Summary: Great price for a real good scanner. Delivery was quick, scans look great and I really like the way the lid opens from the side. I've had several other scanners over the years, this one is the best of all and the cheapest.

Nice, nice, nice!

Anonymous, Newegg
13 June 2007
  • Summary: When I bought this Epson scanner, Newegg had a rebate going. I received the check promptly. Go Newegg!
  • Pros: Scans relatively quickly, include software and TWAIN software are the best of the scanners I've used (a few HPs, one Visioneer, and a series of bad Canons).
  • Cons: I wish it had a stand to store on edge like some of the Canons do.

None Better at This Price

Richard S., Newegg
11 June 2007
  • Pros: I have basic scanner needs and this one fits them well. I previously had an Epson multi-function printer/scanner and I liked the amount of control over image contrast and the small size of PDF’s created by the software. The V100 is faster, has similar software features, and works as well. Some ot...
  • Cons: Not really a big deal, but there's no off switch. The scanner lamp goes to sleep and supposedly the scanner goes into "standby", but the green light is always on when it's plugged in.

User Review

Yvonne B., Newegg
3 June 2007
  • Summary: Did several searches on scanners in this price ranges. Probably the best value in terms of quality and price.
  • Pros: Great performance for low price range. Appropriate product for home/hobby use. I personally use it for scanning line-art, manga, documents for PDF files. Set up and installs easily with Windows XP home edition. Included software easy to use (auto/intermediate/professional modes). Warm-up time is ...
  • Cons: Unable to use one-touch buttons on scanner without further updates from product site. Scanner door is a bit cumbersome when scanning books or other oddly shaped objects.

Better than expected

Daniel H., Newegg
17 May 2007
  • Summary: Works well with both Corel and Adobe; however, I had a problem scanning into Micrografx picture publisher. Also, if you are running Windows Vista you can not use the drivers that come on the CD - you have to go out to the Epson website and download the drivers specifically designed for Vista.
  • Pros: The slide / negative adapter is simple to use. Good quality from images from both prints and negatives. Low profile, fairly small footprint as compared to previous Epson scanners. USB 2.0 makes scaning quick!
  • Cons: None so far

Good value scanner

Robert W., Newegg
13 April 2007
  • Summary: It's been a while since I have found acceptable OCR software for the Macintosh platform. I would have paid the after rebate price just for this software alone. Everything else is a bonus.
  • Pros: Darned if it doesn't do everything its specifications say it will. The scan, E-mail, copy and PDF buttons all work. The Abbyy OCR software works just fine. The 35mm slides and negative strips are beyond acceptable. There are no document auto feed functions, but for the normal small office of home...
  • Cons: This is a USB 2.0 capable scanner. It can be used on USB 1.1, but the scan rate is slow as should be expected.
