Dedicated Scanner is Dedicated to Excellance
from Heber-Overgaard, AZ on 7/9/2014
For a while I was satisfied with using an all-in-one unit until some critical scans of slides and negatives were needed. Being very pleased with my Epson Workforce printer I bought an Epson scanner. The quality of scans, ease of use, and options for the final scan exceeded my expectations. The ability to enlarge the image to standard 35 mm print sizes resulted in a superior print with a minimum of post processing.

I hated to get rid of my old Epson, but there seemed to be no drivers for it compatible with Windows 8. I knew what I wanted - all the old features plus Auto Document Feeding. I found that for just a few dollars more I could get that plus a wide array of USEFUL feature (not whiz-bang stuff you never use). This scanned does exactly what I need; it's easy, intuitive, and fast.
Great quality...easy to set up and use!

We now own three of these scanners--one with the feeder tray. They were all easy to set up and give terrific results. Hooray for Epson! And the price is very reasonable.
Epson Perfection V500 Office Scanner

I had the old Epson 3200SU Photo Scanner with an additional document feeder. Was looking to replace this with another scanner that was as good. Needed to upgrade because scanner did not have a driver for the newer Windows (Vista, 7 and 8). This is the best scanner - does slides, negatives, transparencies, photos, and documents. The automatic document feeder is reliable so you don't have to watch for a feeding error. The Epson V500 scans more negatives and slides than the older version. This is one of the few scanners you can buy, in this price range, that has the CCD rather than the CIS scanning element. This gives a better scan. If I were to give a negative, it would be it is a little slower than other scanners with an automatic document feeder.

An updated version of a familiar EPSON design but still suffering from all the old design ills. To begin, item was received damaged ... specifically the feeder plastic sheeting that sits on top of the glass was wrinkled and punctured. The feeder does not work well, often gets stuck even with very few pages. There is also a distinct artifact streaking (green) when scanning any photos already in a printed page. Generally slow, slow slow interface no matter what "dpi" setting or upgraded software you use. Overall a 1 star rating for the money - this may very well be the very last Epson made device I will ever purchase after many years.
