Summary: I use this scanner quite often and love it. However when I try to use in on a computer using Mountain Lion it dies on me but when I use in on a computer using Snow Leopard it works fine. I have updated the drivers through the software update programme and still have problems.
Summary: I had the old Epson 3200SU Photo Scanner with an additional document feeder. Was looking to replace this with another scanner that was as good. Needed to upgrade because scanner did not have a driver for the newer Windows (Vista, 7 and 8). This is the best scanner - does slides, negatives, transparencies, photos, and documents. The automatic document feeder is reliable so you don't have to watch for a feeding error.
Summary: An updated version of a familiar EPSON design but still suffering from all the old design ills. To begin, item was received damaged ... specifically the feeder plastic sheeting that sits on top of the glass was wrinkled and punctured. The feeder does not work well, often gets stuck even with very few pages. There is also a distinct artifact streaking (green) when scanning any photos already in a printed page.
Summary: This scanner is flexible and reasonably fast with flexibility to make adjustments for many different situations. However, I am currently having difficulty with the auto-feed mechanism. It worked well at first. After only a few hours total use it does not always properly 'grab' the paper in the feed tray. I have not discovered the cause or solution for this yet. It could be the 'slippery' paper I use or the heavier 28 lb. paper that is the source of the problem.
Summary: I bought this scanner to use in my classroom computer lab. Overall it's a good scanner and has nice resolution, speed, and so far it has been easy for my students (grades 9-12) to use with minimal instruction and help.
Summary: Since the day I wore the head out on my RX 500 I have looked for a replacement. At last I have found it. It took an Artisan 1430 and Epson Perfection V500 Office to do it better. I expect more than most, and now I get it. I have 500 sheets of photo paper a day to prove it. When friends ask how I do it. I never tell them. I show them.
Summary: I've been scanning for 15 years or so, and always used another brand of scanner. I always liked that brand, but they've grown very lax in providing drivers for new Macintosh operation system versions. So... it was time for a change.
Summary: This is a scanner dedicated for office, but can, also, do photo work. It can scan one by one, or, you can exchange the included extra flatbed for scanning in great volume. The quality is extraordinary pixels excellent , and you can regulate it. It can scan to pdf , or to jpg, or other formats.As, is a scanner dedicated, it has a very much longer life than the brief usable life of the disposable scanners used in the all-in-ones.
