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 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). One word of advice; I believe that some people may have had trouble because they did not install the software before they installed the hardware.
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: Great price for a real good scanner. Delivery was quick, scans look great and I really like the way the lid opens from the side. I've had several other scanners over the years, this one is the best of all and the cheapest.
Over all I have found it to be a pretty good scanner

Summary: Epson Perfection V100 Photo Scanner (B11B184051) It was easy to set up and had a guide that was pretty good in helping with the questions I had. The extra software I have only begun to use, the photo editor (Photo Impressions)I gave a selection of choices when you did the photo fix. I was able to take my photos through the process and was well pleased. I haven't had a chance to see how it does with slides or how it restores.
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: 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.
