Leave Me Alone
The Improver, Amazon
24 December 2008
Summary: Writing a review is OPTIONAL. If I don't have the time and I pass up on the review, Amazon has no business sending me not one but two more emails to review the product. The scanner works just fine by the way. But your treatment makes me not want to order again very soon.
Summary: I just spoke with Epson, and they tell me the manufacurer's suggested price for the Epson V350 is $129.99. Unless their customer service is mistaken, the one offered here on Amazon is overpriced.
Summary: The scanner works reasonably well, although the on-line instructions are not good, and some of illustrations in the poster do not match those on-line. My objection is that the light will not turn off following Epson's instructions to depress the PDF and adjacent scan buttons at the same time.
Summary: Don't buy this scanner. Even if you just want it for occasional home use there are plenty of models for similar money that won't make you as mad as this model makes me
Pros: the lid looks pretty, and someone with a small brain might be impressed by that
Cons: I'm an art student. The school I attend replace our good, but older scanners with 5 of these things. They take longer to make a scan than any other scanner I've ever used, witch is quite a few. It has nothing to do with the resolution it's set at, the motor inside that moves the lamp is just very...
Summary: I'm thinking about giving this to a friend and buying the Canoscan 8800F.
Pros: I like the ability to scan a whole negative strip at once yet make individual adjustments to each. I guess this is quite common on new scanners. It took awhile to get used to professional mode in the software but now I really like it, especially scanning to PDF.
Cons: I can't use the strip feeder on the top for really short strips. I wish I could over-ride the lamp warmup time when I don't care about the color temp of the light.
Summary: Don't waste your time on the Epson support web-site. Don't buy this scanner.
Pros: Made great scans for a while.
Cons: Then it developed a problem - a fall-off in image brightness toward the edges of the scan area. Epson says the bulb (maybe it has been on for a total of 10 hours) is a "consumable" and is not covered under warranty.
Summary: I gave the scanner to a person who has a computer with XP installed. I am buying a Canon scanner.
Pros: I cannot say as I could never get the scanner to work on my computer.
Cons: 1. Installation program can only install software on C: drive. It is possible to install some of the software manually on other drives. 2. The scanning software was incompatible with my computer (W2K). First level support insisted that I contact Microsoft to solve the problem. Second level suppor...
Summary: The scanner works GREAT, and automatically creates a .jpg image the exact size of your photo -- not like other scanners that makes an 8.5 x 11 image with white in the background. HOWEVER, if you have A LOT of photos, you will have to scan them one at a time. The negative loader works well, too.
