Summary: I bought this scanner to replace a not very old Epson that had seen only moderate use but one day decided to stop working (hardware issue). I chose it because I have something like 30 years worth of negatives and I had scanned only a few with the old. The holder for the negatives is extremely complicated to load and flimsy, so I wonder when it is going to break on me.
Summary: The scanner works fine. The only problem I find is it will not scan to a document. It works fairly well but will only save to a PDF (and other non-document files). The software that came with the scanner is seriously outdated (ABBYY Fine Reader Express). When I called Epson I was told that this was a 2010 scanner thus the software was a 2010 version. They do not supply an update. I went online and downloaded the latest software to work with OS 10.8 (Lion).
Summary: Having trouble sendin negitives to my computer for printing. They do not go into my picture fileas they should. Still working on it . Also is larger than I wanted. doesn't hold the size negitives I have. Thought it would be a full screen that could be used not just a small space. Really not satisfied with this.
Summary: I've always had Canon scanners but decided to try an Epson since the price is right and it does slide and 35 mm film scanning. The scans are quite good when it works but the software [latest drivers from Epson's website] crashes. The scanner hangs OFTEN requiring either a power cycle and unplug and replug of the USB cable, or restarting the Mac. I don't know if this hardware or software related. This is one of the most frustrating devices I have *EVER* used on a Mac.
Summary: It works as advertised, but unfortunately I did not know it cannot scan 120mm film negatives. Since I do not use 35mm format at all, only 120 mm, the product is essentially useless for me. After I found this out I gave it away as a present to some one who actually can use it and had to buy a more expensive scanner. I wished the description would have been more detailed, for me this was money wasted for something I could not use.
Summary: Disappointed with the instructions. They assumed you knew what they were talking about. Made prints from negatives, the quality was poor. I'll be using Walgreens in the future for prints from negatives. I was so frustrated with my first attempt to use the Epson, I haven't touched it since.
Summary: The drive system on both units I have had malfunctioned right out of the box. The belt driving the scan head made noises like the cogs were slipping. The scans it did accomplish were fine. The time it takes to scan 4 slides made it more aggravating when half of them didn't come out. Luckily, I had no problem returning both units.
Summary: Ich habe den Scanner gekauft weil ich auch gerne Dias einscannen wollte. Das kann er in der Tat ganz gut, mit etwas Übung geht das in einer Qualität die ich mir für so ein billiges Ding gar nciht erwartet hätte. ABER: Die Software ist eine Katastrophe. Alles was ich versuche wird zur Frustration: Will ich 10 Seiten eines A5-Buches einscannen und als pdf speichern scannt er immer den ganzen Bereich ab, es kann nicht vernünftig auf das kleinere Format gecroppt werden.
