Product Reviews for Epson Perfection V600 6400 x 9600dpi 48bit Color Flatbed Scanner

The scanner works well enough but the software is not very good nor easy. It took a while to discover and locate and use the OCR function. Saving a scan is too complicated, and printing the scan is also not simple.
Good one, a little complicated

Once hooked up and installed it works great. It is a little confusing whether you are scanning, producing a pdf or doing something else. Finally, I found that if I pressed the pdf button on the front of the scanner, the software presented me with all the options I needed. The first thing you have to find is the file location where the scanner is going to place your document, that is on another screen...once you set that up, you are good to go...clicking on the scan button makes a page, clicking on it again makes another one, and clicking finish, forms all of the scanned pages into a single pdf document. That is nice...but a little hard to find.

This is the second Epson flatbed scanner I've purchased over the years. I had some technical issues with the first model and upgraded to the V600 and have been using it with great success for the past three years. My latest and most ambitious project was the digitalizing of my entire photo collections to include thousands of prints, slides, and negatives. This daunting task (still ongoing) was accomplished rather routinely once becoming familiar with the accompanying software. The work was tedious and slow, but the results were acceptable for my needs. However, if I was to do it again, I would seriously consider using equipment specialized for slides/negatives as the flimsy V600 attachment for these formats can be problematic at times. Flat documents such as prints, charts, letters, receipts, etc. were quickly scanned with great success.

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.

I bought two Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanners for my business. I needed a scanner that can scan photos, negatives of many sizes, slides, and various documents. I recently scanned the class photos of an entire senior class from a yearbook. They turned out great. And I've only begun to scratch the surface of what this scanner is capable of. Small enough for home. Big enough for business. I could not be happier.
