Summary: I've been a professional digital image specialist for over 12 years, literally starting this career path scanning book covers. Over the years, I've found that Epson is the finest consumer grade brand for scanners and printers. The V330 is no exception. The build quality of the scanner is rock solid with no feeling of flexibility or weak joints. The quality of the scans is superb, even when scanning something small at higher resolutions.
Summary: I mainly bought this scanner to scan my 35mm film negatives. I have scanned nearly 150 negatives, and so far the results are great. If the image is well exposed it comes out great. Even if the image is underexposed or overexposed it stills comes out great. Before buying this scanner I bought the SVP FS1000 dedicated scanner. That was a mistake it looks terrible compared to the Epson Perfection V330.
Summary: The Epson V330 scanner I purchased about a month ago came as exactly as described in the company descriptions and in the Amazon reviews I read. I have been using it merrily to start scanning a lifetime full of print photos and slides. The photos have come out beautifully. I have only done a slide or two so I can't comment much on that. I've heard it's a bit more complicated, but not a problem to master.
Summary: Excellent choice for scanning old photos, slides & film. Not top professional quality but surprisingly good for the low price. As mentioned in other reviews, the set-up instructions are totally useless - just use the CD and install the software in your computer, click on the icon for the User's Manual and it'll download it from the internet. The manual covers everything pretty well.
Summary: Nice product, particularly considering that it's priced about the same as the toys out there. It is quality construction and the frame for scanning multiple slides is handy. Scan quality is very good and my only complaint is scan speed is a little slow. Highly recommended.
Summary: I am very happy with this scanner. I have scanned about 700 slides in the last two weeks & am pleased with the general quality. Colors seem true to the original pix. I did have some problems early on though. The Epson scan program would lock up & then not communicate with the scanner. After a few calls to tech support I realized my computer was too slow so I then connected it to the new media computer I had recently built & it has been flawless since.
Summary: I bought the scanner to digitize around 1500 35mm slides that I had stored in my basement. I looked at businesses that perform the function but they were more expensive than buying the scanner and doing it myself. While the process was time-consuming (you can only accommodate four slides at a time), the results were great! I have been able to save many memories for my family and saved myself some money as well.
Summary: I purchased the V330 from Amazon from reading all the positive reviews. And, because it seemed a great value with the features and software at that price. It is. . . But when I received the first one, it made a clicking noise as the light traveled down the track and the image was smeared. NOT A PROBLEM FOR AMAZON. They quickly sent me another one (at not cost to me). But, the second one was doing the same thing.
Summary: It is a little on the slow side but we are having so much fun looking at old slides. Still don't know anything about editing so need to read up on that. Assembly was fairly quick and it is easy to use. Can't wait to get more of those slides scanned. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is the speed. Quality of the scans so far has been nice. Not sure how to fix the darkness on some of them. Great product.
