Reviews and Problems with Epson Perfection V750 Pro
Showing 1-10 of 37
No slouch, but cheaper alternatives exist

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: 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.
Summary: If medium format is your thing then this scanner fits the bill and will produce results not far short of a Nikon at 5 times the price.If,however,you only do 35mm you might want to look at other products which are just as ,or even more,capable. If you are not fussed about getting Silverfast Ai, you could not do better than to get the V700.I own both and can see no difference in the results.My V700 has done thousands of scans without a single hiccup and I hope the V750...
Summary: Just a warning for those who have or about to purchase the V750 or any Epson Scanner/product,I find this Scanner very useful especially for compiling and saving / printing very old photographs and 35mm images and slides, not so easy with the slides but I am on a learning curve, a great scanner, but read the small print , my AC Adapter has quit twice since March and Epsom state it is only warrantied for three months which I find questionable, having many AC adapters on...
Summary: Tried this out at a studio and was so impressed decided to purchase one. Without much fuss have produced some excellent scans from 35mm, 6x6 and 5 x 4 transparencies and negatives. We use the professional option of set up but have not gone into this in much detail to find the optimum settings. Just keep some film cleaner and Dust off air spray at hand and the ICE technology will not be needed, especially if you are good with Photoshop, photo elements is included.
Summary: There is little I can say that hasn't already been said in other trials and reviews. I have found the scanner well worth the money and feel it compares more than favourably with the more expensive dedicated film scanners from Nikon. I used to own one (Nikon Coolscan) which is no longer usable because you cannot get the spares for it once it fails! A sad indictment of the way products become redundant relatively quickly.
Summary: Only used it a few times but very nice being able to scan 12 slides or a whole roll of 35mm neg at a time. The Fluid Mount Accessory was not in the box (the main reason for getting the V750 over the V700), but contacted Epson support and they saidf this was a mistake with some V750s and they would send one out to me.
Excerpt: Depuis l'arrêt des Nikon, il ne reste pas grand choix pour qui veut scanner ses archives argentiques. Cet Epson bien que cher est une solution car la machine est très précise et très silencieuse. Reste qu'à ce prix, il est indigne qu'Epson livre des passses vues incommodes, fragiles et verrre anti newton.... les 6x7 ont tendance à se gondoler et la mise au point en souffrte.
