Great scanner but overpriced on Amazon.

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: 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: I've scanned documents and photos (not negatives) and it works great on both. For documents, I like that it can scan the docs directly into Adobe pdf format. For photos, I especially like the color restoration it did on the old color photos (circa 1970's) that I scanned in, making my old photos look...
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.
Summary: We purchased the Epson Perfection V350 on 03/09/2008. With the free shipping it arrived in only a few days. The installation was effortless on Windows XP-SP2. Operation is so easy "that my computer illiterate wife could use it" her quote! No complaints so far. We have not used the 35mm neg.
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.
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.
