Excerpt: Although I had never owned a scanner, I literally have thousands of 35mm negatives and slides that I wished to turn into digital images. B&H tried to steer towards a high-end model, but having read low ratings of Epson customer service, I instead chose a low end model, the 600.Of course, the scan is...

Excerpt: After many hours spent trying to scan standard 35mm mounted slides, could not get the included software to find the image areas. Also tried to scan mounted 6x6cm slides with same poor results.
Cons: Limited Scans Per Setup, No Mf Mounted Templates, Poor Software
Excerpt: I used this scanner for a couple of weeks before realizing there was a fair amount of dust and gunk under the glass. It was really hard to see visually, but I kept getting the same dark spot in the first frame of any batch of 35mm film that I scanned.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Resolution
Summary: To early to review this scanner. Just purchased couple week's ago. I like the quality of the scan's. I hope it last longer than the last two Epson scanners. I'm disappointed that the scanners don't last long. I own Epson perfection 3170 and V-500 photo scanners. Neither one is working now.
Summary: no usb cord in box....dissappointed that epson let that happen...I cant use the scanner!!!!! Therefore a 3 rating, I am yet to test the scanner but I expect it to perform.. I own an epson printer (2400) and am very pleased and am generally pleased with other epson products.
Summary: As with any product purchased for a singular purpose, you want it to satisfy your needs, both ergonomically and functionally. This unit is lacking in location of on/off switch and clear precise cropping lines to satisfy my needs. Others may find this of little bother.
Summary: I scanned a family photo from 1936 which had some scratches on it. Couldn't believe the difference after scanning using the restore color and Digital ICE feature! Other than that I have not tried any other features, but was very impressed with how easy it was to get a great reproduction of this...
