Trouble-free easy

Joseph T., Newegg
12 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this as an early Christmas gift for my mostly non-technical crafty wife. As wonderful as she is, about the only thing that sets her off is when tech products don't work right or are hard to use. This scanner has given her no reason to complain, and she uses it frequently.
  • Pros: Short learning curve. Works as expected. Nice output. Fairly quiet in operation. Included USB cable. Straightforward installation. Includes a slide / negative holder.
  • Cons: Default settings may not be suitable, but they're easy enough to change, so no egg off.

Epson Perfection V300 Photo Color Scanner

MisterTickle, ReviewStream
23 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I got the Epson photo scanner mainly to scan photos and documents in high quality. I have tried some regular document scanners, but they are horrible for scanning photos. They simply cannot deliver the picture quality. This scanner is only $74.99 and it does a great job. I am …

Nice scanner

JON M., Newegg
18 December 2010
  • Summary: This is 4th scanner I have personally owned. I have experience with Visoneer, HP and Canon. I liked this Epson the best compared to the others so far.
  • Pros: Included jig used for slides or film that has a stash away slot is a real plus. Lid unhinges for bulky items if needed.
  • Cons: Not much.

Great Slide Scanner

Michael T., Newegg
23 November 2010
  • Summary: I am extremely happy with my purchase and have spread the word.
  • Pros: All those slides gathering dust can now be scanned and shared! The software is actually pretty good at bringing out the color of old faded or yellowed slides. I have scanned probably 600-700 slides already and at 4 at a time, it is definitely faster than I expected. Even at 1200 res it goes rathe...
  • Cons: The included slide tray fits 35mm, 126, 110 slides but the automatic sensing only works well with the rectangular film 35mm slides. For our old slides with the square Kodak 126 film slides, there is a different process but it still works really well, albeit more slowly since it is more manual. Th...

Excellent value and performance!

Tom S., Newegg
25 October 2010
  • Summary: I was using an Epson Perfection 1660 Photo scanner. I recently installed Windows 7 64-bit. There are no 64-bit drivers for my old scanner and I was on the line as to whether to run my scanner in XP mode or buy a new one.
  • Pros: A fast, quiet, high resolution scanner for documents, photos, negatives and slides that comes with great OCR software for a low price.
  • Cons: none

Poor Packaging- Glass Panel Broken on Arrival

Paula M., Newegg
20 October 2010
  • Summary: I have ordered a computer tower, two monitors, and various other items from Newegg and never had a problem with the packaging or damage during shipment before. I asked for a refund because the customer service agent said there would be no difference in packaging if they sent me another.
  • Pros: Never got to use it, broken on arrival.
  • Cons: UPS dropped it off in only the Epson box it comes in. The box is very flimsy, hardly any packaging material to protect it during shipment. Even if I hadn't opened it up and found three large cracks running across the glass panel I still would have called just to complain about lack of proper pack...

Epson does it again

mark l., Newegg
19 May 2010
  • Summary: I'm a graphic designer. When I was in college back in the 90's- I had a PowerMac & a SCSI Epson Scanner. The PowerMac died before the scanner did & I migrated to a PC & didn't get a SCSI controller since they are expensive. Instead, I got an HP scanner with the PC that I had bought at the time.
  • Pros: Allows you to scan negatives. Software included integrates with Photoshop well. Negative trays store on the lid.
  • Cons: I haven't done any heavy duty scanning with negatives so none that I can think of.

Very Pleased

Jessica S., Newegg
9 May 2010
  • Summary: Overall, I am very pleased with this scanner and would definitely recommend it.
  • Pros: I found this a breeze to set up and use. I have done 600 photos so far and it has been excellent. I have just started doing slides and they come out beautiful on 800 dpi. Works very well for doing multiple photos at once and the built in photo corrections work very well. It is super quiet when sc...
  • Cons: I have had a couple instances where, after a couple hours of scanning, it gives me "scanner has stopped working" errors but if I turn it off and give it a break it picks back up fine. As others have said, the slide and negative holder does seems delicate but has not been a problem. It does have a...

high resolution doesn't work

elliot S., Newegg
16 April 2010
  • Summary: This works great as a high resolution scanner so long as you only scan small postage stamps. If you want to scan a photo or an entire page at very high resolution, this is not the scanner for you because it won't work.
  • Pros: at low resolution settings, it's relatively fast the software interface isn't too bad
  • Cons: the software interface isn't too good if you want to scan at high resolution such as 4800 dpi, you will be unable to scan a regular size 4x6 photo. It fails with an error that says "Image Size is too Large. Reduce the Resolution or Scale setting or decrease the size of the selected area to within...
