  • Excerpt: my only wish is that epson made one of these with an 11x17 flat bed to scan in bigger pictures. i don't know any creatives that want to limit their scans to standard letter size. you would want to be able to at least scan an artsy magazine if not decent sized artwork.

Mostly excellent scanner

  • Excerpt: I looked at a lot of scanners before settling on this one, which seemed like an excellent scanner for a good price. I don't have much film, but I do have many thousand of pictures to scan.

GREAT, especially for an "amateur".

  • Excerpt: Scanning photos collected for the past 50 years. Large, small, clear, faded, B&W, color, all manners of curly. V550 does a great job recovering lost detail. Easy installation - important for a computer illiterate like me. : )
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Slow

Disappointing

  • Excerpt: My previous flat bed scanner was bought in 1998. It made accurate copies. It scanned pictures well. It wore out. I did a lot of research before I bought this scanner, because I use it for photo restoration.
  • Cons: Difficult Setup, Inaccurate Color, Inaccurate Scans

Very good with one caveat

ABHalsey, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Works very well, although the film holder is poor. It is hard to get the film to stay in place, and almost impossible if the film is curled. Other than that it works very well. Slides are not a problem.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Widely Compatible

  • Excerpt: The V550 does exactly what it promised and the learning curve is not steep. We're getting great quality digital copies of slides and photos with a setting at 600 DPI. We have hundreds of old slides and photos from the 1970's and some even older.

Good scans for the price

The Bunny, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I purchased this scanner mainly for digitizing thousands of slides. I had considered a dedicated film scanner before, but this flatbed scanner is more versatile and very economical. The scanner does not automatically work with Linux OS and the drivers provided on the Epson website are no good.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: No Linux Support, Poor Software, Slow
