The Epson V100 Pure Frustration
Neon Person, Amazon
13 November 2007
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: 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!!!!!!!

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.
Summary: Don't make the same mistake I did and spend $100+ on this piece of garbage. Or even $50. In fact, I wouldn't waste another penny on this. I've been up for the past two hours focusing on scanning something I need.
Summary: This scanner does not live up to it's "Perfection" name. I bought this scanner because I needed to quickly scan several documents and images for a project. So I figured this scanner would be good at least since it carried the EPSON name.
Summary: The software for Mac OS X is a disastrous mix of utilities that will not live up to your expectations. The scanner itself is slow and needs an external power supply. Comparable Canons scanners do without one. I'm putting mine on ebay and will be glad when it's gone.
