BEST D---- SCANNER I'VE EVER OWNED

Summary: But you need the extended warranty for two things: 1 - dust will get under the glass after a couple of years 2 - the plastic gears that move the light will strip after about three years. Also, this machine was manufactured as 32-BIT for Windows XP and earlier. Be sure it will work with your operating system before purchasing! I have seen them with Windows 7 drivers, so they are out there. The best thing is that there are 2 modes: simple and pro.
Summary: My earlier Epson scanner was no longer working properly. The new Epson V350 scanner does a good job with images and once one learns how to use the ABBYY software that came with the scanner it also does a good job of creating OCR scans. I have not used it for scanning 35mm film, but the previous owner said he had done so and was satisfied with the results.
Summary: I originally purchased my Epson Perfection V350 in 2007 because I needed a reliable scanner that could handle three dimensional objects and alleviate all the set up time, tricky lighting requirements and the expense of digital photography equipment. Because I need to do a high volume of imaging each day, I needed something quick, easy and efficient. The CCD sensor of the Epson Perfection gives me great depth of field...
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: Excellent scanner....does everything most people except for the high volume professional might need. You can scan your negatives, color slides, photo of all shapes and sizes. Couplke with a good photo editing program and you have the makings of a mini photo editing lab. I highly nrecommend this product nthat has a large qty of prints or slides that needs to be archived. I scanned over 1000 photo's and slides without a single hitch.
Summary: Decent product. Cool auto feed function to scan 35mm negatives. Great feature is direct scan to PDF format and email function. Understanding all the options takes some time. 'Best' selection of options for scanning for YOU requires a little experimentation. For those not so inclined, there are four basic (simple) selections to choose from.
Summary: I have always been a fan of Epson printers and I have always heard very good things about their scanners, so when I saw this scanner I had to have it. It has some pretty impressive features for an inexpensive scanner (slide and negative scanning with automatic negative feeder, high resolution, great color depth, and my favorite: scan to pdf). I have to say that it does produce great scans of prints, but at higher resolution the scan becomes somewhat grainy.
Summary: I have been using this scanner to digitize archived family photgraphs ranging from recent to many decades old. Installation was easy on Windows Vista and the learning curve was fairly short. It has a few minor quirks in the way it previews and frames the photos, but I have discovered ways around these. I like the control it gives you in the professional mode for adjusting colorimetry and exposure. Scanning time is a little slow, but manageable.
