Summary: I bought the Epson Perfection V300 to replace another scanner that stopped working. It is a very nice scanner that does much more than I expected. The price was reasonable and it was easy to set up. I do not particularly like the cord on the front side, but overall, I would buy another.
Summary: After reading previous & very helpful reviews I decided to jump in and buy this scanner. My computer is a MacBookPro (still on version Mac OS 10.6.8) and I have oodles of slides dating back to 1965 that I wanted to convert to jpegs for preservation & my kids. (Can't watch the old slides anymore because of non functioning slide projector.) The scanner software disk specifies that it is only good for Mac OS X 10.3.9 thru 10.6.x.
Summary: Either scanners have come a long way since my old Visioneer 8920, or Epson has the market nailed. LED technology warms up in seconds, and the buttons are all conveniently grouped together--even the on/off switch is easily accessible. But it's the software that really makes this scanner stand out. Everything you might want to do on a routine basis can be done with the press of one button. I love this scanner! Far and away the best I've ever used.
Summary: For the price, this scanner can't be beat. Easy to set up, includes a transparency holder for negatives and slides, Epson software is not too bloated or wacky, works quickly, results are solid.
Summary: This is a great product that I have used as a portable flatbed scanner. The box it comes packed in has a nice handle on it and after removing the shipping packaging I was even able to fit my laptop (17" Dell) in the box with the scanner with all the wires and power adapters adding to it's ease of portability.
Summary: The scanner was easy to setup. I have scanned slides and negative with great results. Using a photo brush to clean any dust of the slides and negatives first helps with quality of the scan. I would recommend this product to others.
Summary: I couldn't be happier with the Epson Perfection V30 photo scanner I purchased through Amazon.com. Not only did Amazon have the lowest price (I researched), everything was flawless -- from ordering to delivery. The scanner is simple to use and the software is powerful enough to revive and refresh decades old photographs. Set up is very simple and I was scanning within 10 minutes, out of the box. If I were to change one thing, I'd re-design the "on/off" button.
