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...
