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...
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.

Pros: Made great scans of small black and white photos while I had the unit. The unit has been out for repair for about 6 weeks now. Another 60 to 90 days to get new repair parts.
Cons: The optical sensor was defective right out of the box. That wasn't discovered until trying to scan larger photos. Instead of returning the unit to Newegg, I took it to the local Epson repair shop (warranty repair). They replaced the optical sensor, but broke the drive mechanism. They're telling m...
Summary: Je viens de recevoir cet appareil, et après avoir passé des heures de réglages et du temps sur les forums, je ne trouve pas de solution à mon problème. Je l'ai acheté uniquement pour scanner des diapos et négatifs de photo de famille, hors le résultat est très décevant, les photos restent floues...
Summary: Beim Kauf des Photo-Scanners habe ich lediglich das Grundgerät bekommen, ohne Beschreibung, Installations CD oder sonstige Zubehörteile, die für den Betrieb des Scanners erforderlich waren. Ich habe das Gerät zurückgegeben und nach einigem Hin-und Her auch den Kaufpreis zurückbekommen.
