Summary: Found that the RS price was best buy online at the time. Original order cancelled, called customer service, they confirmed order and price were valid and in stock. They reordered another one for me. The order was cancelled again. I called to get a supervisor to find out why. Called them again when they didn't call back. They said they had an inquiry in with the warehouse and said they would call back. They never called back.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: I have had my Epson V700 Scanner for a little over three years now and have found it to do every thing I have wanted. We can always want a larger area to scan but for my purpose it is great. For nearly 30 years I did large format photography using negatives up to 8x10 inches. My earlier scanners would scan up to a 4x5 negative. With this scanner I can scan my 8x10 negatives. By using the "area Guide" I have been able to scan the odd sized negatives.
Summary: I purchased my Epson 700 because I was looking for a scanner that could do both film and Print scanning as well as normal paper scanning. I like the fact that the unit has two lenses each optimized for the job at hand. I use mine with Silverfast Archive Suite 8 and when copying negative film or slides the results are amazing considering this is a flatbed scanner and not a dedicated film scanner.
Summary: The Perfection V700 Photo scanner met all my expectations. The set-up was not overly complicated, it does an excellent job of scanning photographic prints and a good job with transparencies and negatives. The film holders are not as robust as some might require, but do an adequate job when used with care.
Summary: I have thousands of pictures & tens of thousands of slides requiring scanning. By purchasing extra slide carriers, I have been able to make my task much easier. The ease of learning, operation and quality of my finish products is amazing.
Summary: Excellent product for revues on slides. I have approx 3600 slides to go through, and, it becomes extraordinarily easy to work with. I chose to purchas three more trays in that I can work easily with batches of forty-eight slides at each sit-down.
Summary: I bought this scanner to replace an Epson 1600 scanner I had for over 10 years. Does everything I need: negatives, slides, and documents quickly and accurately with great professional settings.
