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: 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.
Summary: To clarify after the previous reviews: The wires for the USB and power attach on the LONG side, right by the four buttons. Yes, there is a slot that looks like it was intended to hold them, they probably found that there was interference, so YES there is a warning not to use those slots, to let the wires hang. The Hinge is also on the same long side, so, if you are putting this on a shelf, with the long side on the back wall and the wires hanging down, then you're fine.
Summary: I highly recommend this photo scanner--a great scanner for the money. I purchased the scanner after my old one died and was so amazed with the outstanding quality of the scans, I've started re-scanning all my old 35 mm photos previous scanned. It also comes with a good easy to use scanning/photo editing software package.
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. It has major trouble being properly recognized by the Twain drivers and instead prefers to go into some sort of hardware coma - blinking red or green light mode indefinitely.
