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.
Satisfactory product, but not as good as I expect from Epson.

Summary: I bought this product to work with Windows Vista, and it does after I downloaded a driver from Epson's website. That said, I preferred the previous scanner's interface and ease of use with Windows XP. If not for the Vista problem I would much prefer my previous scanner to the V100 based on ease of use alone.
Summary: I've always use an HP scanner before and I've always been pleased. I only buy a non HP scanner because I read reviews that Epson scanners are good, too. This scanner is not worth the money I paid and it sits collecting dust. When scanning, the scanner scans very slowly. It scans for about 1/3 of the page and then it stops for some reason, then it continues for another 1/3 and then stop and again scans the rest of the page.
Summary: i just got this scanner and it works perfectly when the scanner is completely level. do not cock this thing at any sort of angle or it will do what another reviewer said and it makes that jack-hammer sound and stretches the pictures which i have never had done by any other scanner. i haven't tried the negatives yet, so i can't comment on that, but when the thing does want to work, it scans the pictures extremely quickly and it even separates different photos you put in...
Summary: Arguably, Canon and Epson make the best scanners on the market, and flatbed scanners have far greater scanning specs/capabilities over the all-in-one printers. I was in the market because my old Canon 1290F finally died. Last year whin I upgraded the CPU/motherboard, I thought it died but it turns out that it, and the newer Canon, would not work as I learned from their tech support, Canons twain drivers have a problem with AMD/VIA motherboard combos, and contued not to...
Excerpt: Cheap easy to fit and works with Vista too. Quality of image produced is very good. This scanner though is let down by its software. Yes, you can do almost anything you want but the software is oriented around single jobs. If you have an application where you might want each time to scan first a photo and then a form then it's very tedious setting everything up each time.
Pros: Good quality scans, easy to connect, works with Vista (only V32 tested)
Cons: Slow in use, 30 sec warmup before each scan; software setting tedious

Excerpt: I would first like to start by giving clarification on the functions of this item. It is not a printer, as said by Ciao, it is in fact a scanner that is hooked up to a computer with the necessary photoshop software to enable editting of home photo's and professional shots. Unlike professional photo scanners, the V100 is very cheap.
Pros: good quality scanning, easy to use and cheap to buy
Läuft nur mit Einschränkungen unter Mac OS X (Intel)

Summary: Der Epson V100-Scanner macht einen sehr stabilen Eindruck und arbeitet angenehm leise. An einem Mac Mini mit Intel-Prozessor lässt er sich allerdings nur eingeschränkt nutzen: Die vier Scanner-Tasten funktionieren nicht. Laut Epson-Support wird dieses Feature schlicht unter Mac OS X nicht unterstützt. Dafür gibt es Punktabzug.
