Reviews and Problems with Epson Perfection V100 PHOTO
Showing 1-10 of 44
not bad for $35
11 December 2010
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. I do wish the V300 that I won at the same time (got caught between two auctions) had actually come in so I could compare it to this, but I think the V100 is fine for generating 30MP or so from 35mm film.
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. Though used, it worked fine, and was very easy to operate, so now those photos are on the computer (and some have been emailed to family).
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. Taking off a star because the buttons (on the scanner) don't really work. I was told that this is a common problem for all usb scanners, nevertheless if you add a button - please make sure it works.
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: After my old scanner died I read some reviews on scanners, and read that the previous Epson model was good. I went to CompUSA to pick it up, but was told that model was discontinued and here were the new models. Hoping that the current model would be just as good I bought the V100 scanner. My first V100 worked up until I did a few negative strips, and then I got this jack hammer sound and the scans were leaving some parts of the photo off, or stretching the photos.
Summary: Out of the box, onto the shelf and scanned my first picture in less than 5 minutes! No muss, no fuss, no problems. The included software is VERY comprehensive and works great. (And it is not entirely without schadenfreude to read that the Maccies are not happy -- but it is Steve Jobs they should address, not Epson.) It stands to reason that a scanner (not just this one) needs to be on a flat surface.
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. It developed a small glitch with the software, but, there was a PHONE # to call and a LIVE PERSON answered with the expertise to get me going again real fast. A quality experience all around.
Not a bad scanner for the price (after rebate of course)

Summary: I'm assuming that you're buying this scanner because of the [...]rebate. If so, it's not a bad scanner. The build quality is on the cheap side. I actually had a Microtek 4800 which I had been using for the last 4 years. It did well over 20,000 scans and was still going strong, but my Dad needed a scanner. I had been avoiding Epson like the plague since the first scanner I even got made by them included NOTHING, not even a USB cable.
