Epson Perfection V300 not compatible with Windows 7

Donald A. Bowen, Amazon
1 February 2011
  • Summary: I have used four scanners and this was the first new unit I could not get to work, no matter what software upgrades I tried. Not worth the effort so I returned it, bought the Cannon 8000F and it installed flawlessly the first time. Amazon return was flawless as usual.

Scanner died within 90 days of purchase, tech support useless

mindluge "mental inhabitant", Amazon
9 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought this scanner new from Amazon in April. As of July the scanner is dead. It simply won't turn on. I've tried it in 4 different power outlets in the house and with two different computers. Plug it in, push the power button, and nothing happens.

Excellent Hardware - Nasty Software

PU "PU", Amazon
20 May 2010
  • Summary: The Epson v30 does a great job of scanning both photos and blk & wht documents on both Win XP and Mac OS X 10.6. The Epson software is both intuitive for the beginner, and allows for deep tweeking for the more advanced user.

See If I Purchase Another Epson Product

matthew s., Newegg
5 May 2010
  • Summary: Stick with Canon.
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: DOA. Have to pay shipping to send it back to Epson. Bulky cables. Stupid transformer that covers three outlets on the power strip. Cables stick out of the side of the unit.

A very short life expectancy

Cari Corene, Amazon
16 May 2009
  • Summary: I'm pretty unimpressed with this scanner. Maybe my expectations were too high. I just spent NINE YEARS with a Hewlett Packard scanner. When it finally died I purchased this one as a replacement, thinking that Epson has at least produced some nice printers. But this scanner has been problematic.

Drivers would not install--even with help from Tec Support

A. Woronow, Amazon
16 May 2009
  • Summary: I have a rather ordinary Vario computer that has never complained about any installation of software or hardware until I tried the V30 (also goes for the V300--same thing). The drivers would say that they had installed, but when I clicked the v30 icon, it said they had not installed.

Great for XP, Not So Great for Vista Home Premium 32-bit

Karl Kleese, Amazon
16 May 2009
  • Summary: I too have found the support for this scanner from Epson to be way below sub-par. The printer was purchased 6 months ago and worked fantastic, without a flaw on my Windows XP laptop. Unfortunately, that laptop had a very small hard drive so I had to purchase a new laptop.

Scanner hangs / freezes (Win 7 problem?)

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 May 2009
  • Summary: I downloaded the latest drivers for Win 7 64 bit from Epson web site, the connected the scanner. I found that using either the included software or Vuescan resulted in the scanner locking up. The only way to resolve this was to unplug the unit.
