Disappointing

Suzham, B&H Photo
17 March 2015
  • 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

Missing Cable!

  • Summary: I have high hopes for this scanner...as soon as I run to the store and buy the USB cable that was missing from the box. Frustrating.

The scanner works fine, but the ADF is not good at all

Glenn, Amazon

  • 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.

CUTS IMAGE / SMUDGES ON PHOTOS

DisappointedinAjax, Epson
7 September 2014
  • 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.

STill debating return

cderyk "cderyk", Amazon
13 March 2014
  • 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.

Disappointed - poor software

Mike, Epson
10 January 2014
  • 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.

Disappointed

Victor, Epson

  • 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.

Poor document feeder.

David Bluestone, Amazon
30 July 2011
  • 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.
