Good hardware, Poor software

  • Excerpt: The Epson V550 gets the job done for document scanning is a good option for inexpensive, high resolution photo print scanning. For negatives, there are much better options, but nothing at this price, though you sacrifice details. I had the previous version, the V500, and it felt sturdier than this.
  • Pros: Good Resolution
  • Cons: Poor Software

Great scanner with clunky software

AZJohnB, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am scanning mostly documents. I replaced a V100 with the V550. The 550 seems to use the same clunky software that came with the V100. While the scanner is fast (much faster than the 100), the software does it's best to slow you down.
  • Pros: Good Resolution
  • Cons: Poor Software

Does NOT come with Scan-n-stitch software

  • Summary: I debated over the 550 or the 370. I am mostly using this for scanning pictures and kid's artwork. I read the reviews and was under the impression that it came with the Arcsoft Scan-n-stictch software, but it doesn't. The 370 does, I wish now I would have gone with it.

  • Summary: I have been trying to scan slides and most of them do not scan so I will be able to save then to my computer. I will try again; but a little disappointed in the product.

  • Summary: I am trying to restore photos, have the v500 and bought the v550. The color from both scanners did not restore the original colors as they were when originally printed years ago.

Not So Good

Tom, Epson
2 March 2014
  • Summary: The first one I received was defective and had to return. Additionally, the USB cord was also defective. The replacement scanned 35 mm film ok but could not scan my 35mm slides as the holder was too large. The unit is not equipped to scan 10mm film.

Epson V550 scanner

Photog, Epson

  • Summary: Like the scanner - very easy to get up and running. But I am totally not impressed with the film holders. I don't think plastic can flow any thinner..! For a repetitive use item "Come On" put some plastic in it... ! The film frame is Very flimsy! I expect it to be broke within a month.
