Good scans, but buggy & unprofessional

Jim, rakuten
9 September 2012
  • Summary: - Scans look really good, at least so far. - Installation went well. - The buttons on the scanner don't seem to work (except the power button). The PDF button worked once too, but it took so long (I'm guessing 30 seconds) before there was any response, that I had given up. Then I tried each button, allowing 60 seconds for a response before giving up. - When I tried to search the manual, I got an error message in my browser, and no result.

Good quality scanner- but program has many flaws

Steve Kelso, Amazon
16 December 2010
  • Summary: This scanner is a good value- very low price and high quality scans. It's lightweight, quiet and the installation was a breeze. So far I've scanned over 2,000 photos and documents. But I've had quite a few problems that are consistent and annoying: The scanner has a feature that recognizes multiple photos on the glass- then scans and saves them as separate images. This feature frequently makes mistakes and I can't figure out how to disable it.

Easy cheap scanner

ccex, Ebay

  • Summary: I had to give up my Epson Perfection 600S SCSI scanner when I upgraded to Windows 7. I loved that scanner, which was discarded by the city of Chicago's graphics department. Epson did a great job with their TWAIN driver (which means "Totally Without Any Interesting Name"). My new PC still has SCSI, but very few SCSI scanners have TWAIN drivers for Windows 7.

Epson Perfection Scanner V30

BR, Amazon
27 July 2010
  • Summary: If you scan and copy a lot, this is not for you as it is very slow and takes several actions before printing. I for one do not copy and scan several things at a time so it works for me. The price is resonable. I had a HP Scanner that cratered after 5 years. You could copy and it would go straight to the printer, where the Epson does not.

scanner seems OK - software is mostly bad shovelware

Pete ZaHutt, Amazon
27 March 2010
  • Summary: The scanner itself seems like a good scanner, but the software is horrible. The Epson Scan app is OK as a stand-alone app, but if you want to scan from within Photoshop like I do, you'll have to use a klunky TWAIN driver. If you use CS4, you'll have to install the TWAIN plug-in. The rest of the software is crap - don't even bother installing it.

Not "Perfect"

P. BENNETT, Amazon
16 March 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this scanner because I had to scan many strips of 35 mm film and slides. This scanner has a 6-frame-long 35mm-wide frosted panel in the lid that lights up when you inform the epson software that you are scanning film. The epson software included with the scanner is, as usual, irritating to work with. When scanning 35mm negative filmstrips there is a "feature" that detects the edges of each frame and then crops and displays each frame.

A nice little scanner but the software is slow and the framing is off.

a reader from San Mateo, Amazon
16 March 2010
  • Summary: The setup for this scanner was easy and the price was excellent but the software that comes with the scanner is very slow, taking two minutes to power up after you press one of the command buttons. The scanner software has an event handler that lets you scan, email, or copy by just pressing a button on the scanner but the scanner must bring up the software first and the slowness of the software kind of negates any convenience the buttons provide.

Good image quality for the price, but...

docbrown88, Amazon
23 February 2010
  • Summary: ...the placement of the usb and power ports is such a glaring design flaw. If you don't use the buttons, or you expect to have this only on the right side of your desk and against the wall, it might not be a big deal. Maybe that's being picky, but it bugged the heck out of me. Image quality was solid for this type of slimline (CIS) scanner, I'd say a touch better color rendition than a Canon Lide 30 I tried.

Epson Perfection V300 Photo Color Scanner

Gordon S., Amazon
21 February 2010
  • Summary: The Epson Perfection V300 Photo Color Scanner was purchased exclusively for scanning old family slides from the 60's that were starting to fade, and whose holders were warping so they'd no longer automatically feed in the projector without continual assistance. After reading the V300's reviews, it seemed the scanner was reliable and of adequate quality for the images produced, hence I bought one.

Epson V300 Scanner

Crater1, Amazon
10 December 2009
  • Summary: Good scanner for the price but I needed slide scanning and the quality is far below my needs and expectations. I will need to send out my slide for scanning but I will keep the Epson V300 for general use.
