Summary: I am very pleased with the scanner. When used properly it gives outstanding image quality for the price you pay. Films I've scanned so far were printed on fashion magazines, and everyone is happy with the outcome.
Meets all my image (and text) scanning needs, and some!

Conclusion: I bought the V750 because it seemed to offer the best solution for scanning medium format film negatives and slides at anywhere near the price range. I was looking for quality of image above all, not needing to throughput a massive archive of files. The native software is good, and I tend to use this for quick scans to view on screen. When I have determined which images I want to print, I use Silverfast Ai to generate the highest resolution images.
Summary: This is probably the best scanner on the market. It scans my 35mm and medium format transparencies to perfection. It's the Rolls Royce of scanners - just goes to show that you get what you pay for.
Summary: This scanner is supposed to be top of the range and should be very good. It is completely let down by the Silverfast Software supplied with it. The software repeatedly hangs and crashes. Silverfast on the rare occasion it does work, can produce images with better colour and less dust and scratches than the alternative Epson Scan software.
Summary: Haven't had chance to use much yet but my experience so far is that it is a superb piece of kit. The amount of work that it does automatically is why I bought it and it hasn't let me down. It will get a lot of work because it was bought to digitise 1000's slides in an archive. Fully recommended.
Summary: Many flatbed scanners offer the convenience of both reflective and transparency support, meaning that like an all-in-one printer, you're saving a lot of money by combining essential features. This is particularly true if a dedicated film scanner is out of your budget. But having owned the Epson Perfection V500 for some time now, I was led to believe that its bigger brother would offer superior results at almost three times the cost. Does the V750 cut it?
Summary: I am absolutely astounded with the results I am getting when transferring my photo negatives to digital positives on my Apple iMac. Getting a good print in the darkroom could take up to 20 minutes; the Epson V750 produces stunning hassle free results in about 4 minutes. I cannot praise the scanner highly enough. However, the "bonus" editing software has been a disappointment. My iMac cannot recognise the EZcolor and therefore does not open it.
Summary: This scanner is very good. It produces sharp images with very subtle tonal gradation which is ideal for black and white negatives. The auto exposure system is close to flawless. For film sizes above 35mm the film holders are not great and it would probably be worth buying a carrier from betterscanning.com. It takes roughly 20 mins to scan 24 35mm negs. Overall far exceeded my expectation.
