Epson Perfection V30

 

For those who know that they will never need to scan slides or negatives, the Epson is a good, affordable flatbed scanner. It scans quickly and is capable of very high image densities. If you need to scan text so that you can edit it from a word...

The Epson contains no mercury and draws little power

There is no adapter to scan slides and negatives on this flatbed scanner

The Epson Perfection V30 is one of the best buys for Windows and Mac users.

Excellent scanner for a budget price!

 

I've had a few different scanners over the years from Epson, HP, and Canon but this one definitely makes the grade for my needs. With digital cameras, I don't really have a need to scan many photos but this scanner definitely makes short work of that...

Excellent scans, LED light source means no "warm up" and low power usage. Ability to scan to PDF (including multi-page documents) works great as well

Can't think of anything

This is a great product and simple to use. Very easy instillation instructions and software. Install the software and just plug it in and operate. Does a great job and even allows you to adjust contrast to the digitized photos. Great buy for the price.

Great value for the features & works with XP.

 

Easy to set up and produces fast quality scans. Bought to replace old Visioneer 4400 that died. Nice to create multi-page pdf files. Highly recommended if all you need is a flatbed scanner.

V30 Scanner

 

Bought this after upgrading to windows 7 and my six year old microtek was no longer compatible. I chose this because of the reviews already there and price. Been using it for a month now and love it. My scans come out bright and clear, low noise, and...

Easy to use ; Decent included scanning software
