Epson Perfection V200 Color Scanner

NHM, Rate it all!
16 October 2008
  • Summary: I bought this product after reading other reviews because I have a huge slide collection and it was rated as excellent for converting slides. Well, maybe it worked well for others, but my experience was very poor. The process is easy, but the results were muddy and did not project well in Power Point. Pictures I scanned from books were fine, but I did not need this product for that purpose. The photo editing program is good and easy to use.

Would have been OK with clean glass...

4 April 2008
  • Summary: Thanks to Amazon's shipping efficiency, I got my scanner faster than expected. Only to find out sooner that the glass was dirty inside (spots of iridescence and cloudiness). Not something you would want from a scanner supposed to give you a sharp rendition of the stuff you put on. I agree the scanning is fast, and it works well with Leopard. I also agree with previous comments on the poor choice of power and usb ports location. As for the software...

Technical problems with the Epson v200

N. Plowman "sleepboy", Amazon
8 February 2008
  • Summary: I was really excited about this product and the ability to scan negatives. You do get a bunch of crap when you install it so use the custom install function. When I finally got to scan some negatives I was very impressed and surprised by the quality that is produced. However my joy turned to frustration and rage as every time I plugged my epson into my laptop to scan images it screwed up and disabled and my touch pad mouse and so I could do nothing but unplug it or try...

One basic design flaw-

Dan L., Amazon
4 December 2007
  • Summary: I'm a Mac user. The software seems to be OK - its not great, but Epson is promising a Leopard update (see [...] for more information). The main beef I have with it so far is not the quality, the lid, the software. Its the plugs - for both power and USB. Look at the scanner. See the power/PDF/Mail/print buttons in front? That's exactly where the power and USB plugs are. Incredibly counterintuitive - who the heck wants cables running to the front of their desk?

Good hardware, horrible (Mac) software

D. Blackburn, Amazon
8 September 2007
  • Summary: I have owned three different scanners in the last eight years. This one has the best scanner and the worst software of any of them. Five stars for the hardware and one for the software averages to three stars. The hardware is quite nice, attractive and slim design with a side-opening high-capacity lid for bound material. The scans are good too, and hardware installation was trivial, just power brick and USB cable. Scans are very rapid through USB 2.0 interface.

Irrgarten Betriebsanleitung

Wilfried Hofmann, Amazon
27 February 2009
  • Summary: Beim Lesen von Rezensionen (nicht nur zu diesem Gerät!) fällt mir immer wieder auf, dass auf Betriebsanleitungen, d.h. ihre klare bzw. verwirrende Erklärungsweise nicht eingegangen wird. Die ist doch so wichtig. Die Verfasser von schlechten Anleitungen können ihren Kollegen Geräteentwicklern Knüppel in die Beine werfen. Der Scanner V200 Photo, den ich vor kurzem gekauft habe, ist sicher qualitätsmäßig völlig in Ordnung.
