Epson Perfection V500 Photo

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Epson Perfection V500 Photo is one of the most impressive scanners yet for the price, delivering high-quality, fast scans in fully automatic mode.
  • Pros: High-quality scans for prints and film. LED light source eliminates warm-up time.

Epson Perfection V500 Photo flatbed scanner

  • Conclusion: The Epson Perfection V500 Photo is an allround device with the primary goal of scanning papers directly at the desk, comfortably and fast. The possibility of digitizing slides and negatives is fine for the occasional application. To me the V500 Photo, due to its performance data, doesn't seem to be the right device to scan film material in good quality.

Get 'perfect' scans of photos, slides, negatives and documents

Consumer Electronics Net
20 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Epson America recently started shipping the Perfection V500 Photo, its newest flatbed/film scanner. At a street price of around $250, this scanner is the first in its price range to feature a LED light source instead of a traditional fluorescent lamp. The biggest advantage you'll see from this scanner's use of LEDs is there is no waiting the usual 15 to 30 minutes for fluorescent lamps to warm up before you can get the most accurate scans.

Epson V500 Scanner : Epson Perfection V500 Photo Scanner

GadgetSpeak
27 June 2008
  • Summary: With the MFU (multi function unit) or AIO (all in one) taking up little more space than a scanner and providing the functionality of three or four products then the scanner needs to do extra things to consider a stand alone product. There are units that read vast numbers of textual pages at 16 or 20 PPM. Here it can read slides and transparencies .

[REVIEW—EPSON V500 SCANNER]

DPexpert
10 April 2007
  • Summary: The Epson V500 is a very good scanner. It may look expensive but you get a lot for the money. The controlling software is excellent, even if it is a little cranky when run in Windows Vista. We were pleasantly surprised by its exceptional versatility.
  • Pros: This is the first dual purpose flatbed/film scanner from which we have taken respectable film scans. In fact we were surprised by the quality of reproduction from all media. We tried colour transparencies, black and white negatives and medium format negatives with uniformly excellent results. 10 by 15cm prints from all sources were very good. Above that degree of enlargement quality drops off.
  • Cons: This is quite a complicated piece of machinery and not at all intuitive in setup and operation, so why not provide a printed user’s manual? It is a pain to have to have the scanner software open on the computer while at the same time trying to find the necessary instructions in an HTML document on screen. This is unacceptable cheap skatery.

  • Conclusion: L´Epson Perfection V500 Photo est ainsi un appareil Allround avec le but primordial, de finir directement et confortablement les scannes des modéles de papier sur la table d´écriture. La possibilité, de numéroter les Dias et négatifs, est pratiquement pour l´utilisation occasionelle. Pour le scanne du matériel de film en une bonne qualité il me semble que le V500 Photo n´est pas convenable á cause de ses caractéristiques de préstation.

  • Conclusion: L'Epson Perfection V500 Photo rimane dunque un apparecchio molteplice la cui funzione primaria, è quella di eseguire la scansione di documenti da riprodurre, direttamente sulla scrivania, in modo comodo e veloce. La possibilità di digitalizzare sia diapositive che negativi si addice praticamente solo all'impiego saltuario.
