Summary: I had an old epson perfection way back from around 2000 or so and it was great. I remember it was a bit contrasty but pretty close to an exact match to the real thing. and by that I mean I scanned a magazine and them looked at the actual magazine next to the monitor and it looked close.
Summary: My $25 no-name scanner for Win 3.1 works better, but it's not conveniently located and is not compatible with Linux.. This item should never have made it out of Epson's door.

Summary: Ich hatte anfänglich den Fehler gemacht, ein zu langes USB-Kabel anzuschließen. In Folge ist der Scanner "eingefroren" und nix ging mehr. Mit dem beiliegenden kurzen USB-Kabel läuft alles einwandfrei. Die Bild-Qualität ist sehr gut.
Excerpt: Simple à installer (sous XP), agréable à utiliser ce produit a parfaitement rempli son contrat ... pendant 5 mois. Du jour au lendemain, problème de logiciel, les scans couleurs en pdf sont devenus impossibles (OK en N&B).
