Excerpt: i am 68 years old and have some old family photos that need to be transferred to digital - i have had trouble getting 3 of the modes (home-office-professional) to work correctly transferring to my apple computer I-photo - the auto mode works and the jpeg file is readable so i can use the pics but...
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.
The scanner works fine, but the ADF is not good at all

Summary: Automatic document feeder jams constantly even when feeding just one photo through it. And then sometimes will pull two to three photos in at the same time there by jamming it again. The scanner works fine, but the ADF is not good at all, maybe I just got a LEMON.
Summary: After making 10 scans, found that image is cropped (cut) on the edge if using the edge to get a straight alignment. When copying concert ticket stubs, cutting off some of the edge is not acceptable. Other photos show dust and smudges NOT on the image. Disappointing.
Summary: Will not work with VueScan and only sometime works with Epson software. Worked with one version of VueScan for one week and then another version came out and that was that. I am doing slides (pretty good when it works) on an iMac with OS X 10.9.2. Would really like to know why it doesn't work.
Summary: I was disappointed with the Perfection V550 Photo scanner. The scanner hardware worked okay, but no better than my old scanner. The software was poor and not helpfull. It didn't even open the image just scanned! I had to go searching through hundred of files in the My Pictures folder.
Summary: I purchased this today from Office Depot. I set it up this evening and discovered there is either dust or a scratch on the inside of the glass. It's always disappointing to get something new and find the quality is not what was expected. It scans okay and works as promised.
Summary: I have the higher end Epson scanner at the office and it works without a problem. This one, however, has a terrible paper feeder. It is inconsistent at best. If you are scanning in pictures on the flatbed, enjoy. If you are looking for a workhorse for paper scanning, this is not it.
