Summary: well for $35 plus shipping for a native 3200x9600 8x12 scanner with USB2.0, 2" of lid-play and a film holder, it's not bad. Certainly does a decent job scanning 35mm film which is the reason that I bought it.
Summary: Having photo prints I wanted to put on the computer, and an all-in-one printer which refuses to scan photo prints through the rollers, I needed a flat-bed scanner. This one filled the bill perfectly.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for older, slower scanner. I liked the option to scan negatives - I also used it to digitize my 50+ film rolls. The resolution and the color is great, its pretty fast for home use and the software is allright.
Summary: It was a great bargain. For the price I bought it for it is a really great scanner. Obviously since its old, it doesn't scan as fast or as good as the new 100 dollar scanners that are out there, but for this price it is a great buy.
Summary: I have owned dozens of Epson products and two previous Epson scanners. They have all performed reliably. When my last trusty scanner started to show its age I figured the V100 would be a great replacement. Instead I feel thoroughly cheated by Epson.
Summary: After reading some of the negative comments regarding this scanner I was quite hesitant to buy one, but the price was right, so I did. I was pleasantly surprised. It worked as advertised and the setup was without complications (for my PC at least, it may be different for a Mac).
