First, I bought this quite a while ago... and it's still not obsolete! There might be technical cons for the pros, but as a non-techie I found it to be incredibly easy to install and use. I am making a project of scanning all my older photos/family pics. I plan to copy them to flash drives for my kids. (Fortunately I can scan however many I can fit within the frame. I've been sticking with 4 (3x5).) Also, my dad died 25 years ago when my daughter was 4 years old. This was of course before digital cameras so I don't have very many pictures. I put a negative I had of a picture of him with my daughter on the scanner. Not only did I get a beautiful picture of them together, but there was another pic on the strip that I didn't realize was there. I would have paid ANY price for these two pictures. Instead all I had to buy was this very reasonably priced scanner. I would recommend this scanner to anyone.
Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner

For years I have used your Epson perfection 2450 Photo Scanner. It is a superior product (as well as your Epson Stylus Photo 870 Printer). I just bought your V600 Photo Scanner. It makes terrible copies! The definition is terrible! It is very inefficient to work through your menus to increase the dpi and make better copies. Your software is worse than the Smart Panel offered with your old scanner. You have gone backwords!!! I want my money back! I will return your new scanner. I will spend my money getting my old scanner fixed!!!

Great scanner bad film holders. The software is OK but I have not tried anything very complicated with it. The film holders are nearly useless. The 35mm are hard to load if there is any curl in the negatives. Sanning a single 35mm photo negative is impossible. It would be great if they added something to match the 35mm sprocket holes. The other negative holder fits only one negative dimension. It is for 2 1/4 wide negatives. It just barely holds the negative. There is nothing for 126 film negatives. It would be nice if they would provide a holder with a variable width function. I have not tried the slide functions. I purchased the scanner to print some old photos that have been lost. I will be only able to capture 25% of them. I would return the scanner if it were possible

I have used my scanner for everything except photo Negatives so far and the output has been very clear with great resolution.
V600 easy start . . . acceptable learning curve?

Dead simple to get out of the box, installed, up and running. First scans look great! Very simple copier function. Been told instructions are complicated. I can see there will be a learning curve, but it doesn't look too bad. =LOVE= the online user's guide and the ability to easily print out the pages you look up.
