Great scanner


Easy to install. Color reproduction and image resolution is excellent. Very fast scans. Software is usefull and easy to use. Drivers have been stable for me with Windows XP. Buttons work well and provide nice tactile (CLICK) feedback, which is more...

None that I can think of

Love it!


I am glad I stopped reading reviews and purchased this scanner. I could not be happier.

It seems as though it is difficult to find any scanners with good consistent reviews. I read about this scanner for several months and finally got it on sale. I have not been happier. I am using it to scan negatives and it has worked wonderfully. There...

I'm now shopping for a better camera.

Had a HP and when I upgraded to Windows Vista, HP had no drivers for it and requested that I replace the scanner. This can scan almost at 3Dimention. Magnification of pictures and closeups unreal. Scanning simplified. Do not have 6 or more buttons to...

Have a 7 MP camera, now it doesn't look so good. Scanned pictures look even better

I Liiiike it!


I got this to replace my Visioneer 9420 that I was using to replace my Epson 9450. The platten, (the glass where you place your image for scanning), isn't recessed too deeply into the scanner so it doesn't put funny creases into oversized images. It's...

You plug it in and it works with XP64 or Vista64

The lid is not removable

Glad I purchased Epson scanner


Am very happy with the output of this model scanner. Shipping was extremely fast from

Works perfectly with my Macbook Pro - OS Tiger. Easy to use. Have scanned approximately 200 pictures, slides & negatives in the last couple of weeks for my genealogy project. Love the color restore - would recommend product

If you have a lot of negatives or slides will take some time to scan them at 4 slides or 6 negatives at a time. My negatives are in strips of 4. Don't think it will take anything to heavy on the glass either

Great Cheap Scanner


It's cheap and I don't know how long it will last. I put this here because it may run fine for years so I can't count it as a con.

It's fast and the scans are very good. I had an old HP Scanjet 5P from 1995 that was on a SCSI interface and so far I've never been able to find a scanner that was as fast and had as good software but this one is darn close. I love that you can batch...

It's noisy but not offensively so. The Abbyy Fineprint software is out of date but it works

Works with linux


I'm very happy it works with linux and recommend it for anyone needing a good scanner using linux.

Works with ubuntu 7.10 using drivers/backend (for xsane) from Have been scanning slides (50 or so) with no complaints. Scanned a few documents with good results

This is with LINUX only: not able to pick all resolutions(300,2400,4800 only), buttons don't work(as of yet), and the unit doesn't shut off(unplug-it)

Good Basic Scanner


The power plug has a rather chunky plug as the transformer is built into the wall socket, so plan for this to be in a wall socket, or at the end of your power strip. Ultimately if you just want to scan photos, documents, the occasional book or...

Small, fairly quiet compared to older models, but still makes the usual scanning noises. Platen is slightly larger than your average sheet of paper which keeps the size down ; I only installed Epson's basic TWAIN software as I'm scanning through...

Newegg lowered the price 6 days after I bought it! Ah well, was a bargain even then
