Summary: Bought this unit to replace an older Epson scanner that started to give up the ghost and did not work with Windows 7. Fast, simple install, ready to scan in minutes. The new generation scanning comes on immediately, no warm up time. Scans my comic books for web auctions in under 7 seconds. I have not had a chance to try all the "fix-it" features that come on the disc, haven't used it for what a lot of people will, to scan in old pictures and slides. No complaints!
Summary: I recently purchased the Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner for my home office, I currently have the V500 at work and love the LED technology that lets me scan without the warm-up wait. The quality of the scans are outstanding. My primary purpose is for scanning film, 120 mm, 35 mm negatives and many, many 35 mm slides.
Summary: After trying to scan some negatives on another scanner that was meant for 35mm, I bought the V600 as I needed a unit that would handle some medium format negatives from the 50s. The negatives were in pretty bad shape with lots of scratches, dirt and who knows what on them. I selected the Digital ICE option when scanning and I have to say it is a magical!
Summary: From the looks of it this scanner, although built more cheaply than my old warhorse the Epson 2450, has many neat features. The best is that I do have to suffer that"scanner is warming" up waste of time. It worked very well. The only thing that I do not understand is the slide holders. I find them useless and I had originally bought the 600 to scan slides. What can I say.
Summary: Hate it already. User guide has all kinds of cool stuff....Actual software is no where near what is touted. I wasted so much money on this machine, only to find software does not work as explained in the user guide and instructions!
Summary: I bought this to replace my old Epson 4490 which died recently. My need was based on slide scanning and it seems to do well at this task. It is a little slow at scanning, and loading and unloading is a pain, but the 3200 dpi scans are good.
Summary: Great for scanning old negatives to prints. Had a small issue with getting frame adjustment correct on some negatives. Overall has done a wonderful job so far, I have used it for about a week now.
