Review: Epson Perfection V30 flatbed scanner

 

Epson's Perfection V30 is an inexpensive flatbed scanner that boasts an optical resolution of 4800 dpi and 48-bit colors.

The V30 is just 1.6 inches thick and weighs less than 5 lbs. It connects to your Mac via USB 2.0 and requires an external power supply. It has four buttons that let you scan to file, copy (scan to printer), scan to e-mail, and scan to PDF from the unit...

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.

Epson Perfection V30 review

 

If you need a scanner just to digitise your old holiday snaps or keep on top of household paperwork, there's little point in splashing out on an expensive model with the best image quality and fastest performance, especially when cheap scanners are so...

A quick flick through recent issues of PC Advisor will tell you that standalone flatbed scanners aren't an item we review on a regular basis. While sheetfed document scanners still have an important job to serve in many an office (converting physical...

The V30 doesn't have everything – if you want a built-in transparency unit, for instance, you'll need to pay around £20 extra for the Perfection V300 – but the scan specifications and results are significantly ahead of those offered by most MFDs. For...

Epson Perfection V30 flatbed scanner review

 

Entry level scanner from Epson does one thing very well.

Solid, consistent scanning results; good detailed reproduction of a range of photos and documents; 48-bit colour; simple user interface and scanner controls; ReadyScan LED technology promises energy efficient scanning; affordable, especially if you...

Higher resolution settings may be overkill for many; scanning smaller images at the same time only a partial success; no built-in Transparency Unit; Full Auto Mode interface looks dated

The V30 proved a hard-working, reliable scanner capable of producing solid and consistent results that are lacking in some jack-of-all-trades multifunction printers. Four user-friendly, one-touch scanning buttons and an intuitive interface typify...

At under £70, can the Epson V30 flatbed scanner compete with the scan facility on the more popular multi-function printers?

The V30 doesn't have everything – if you want a built-in transparency unit, for instance, you'll need to pay around £20 extra for the Perfection V300 – but the scan specifications and results are significantly ahead of those offered by most MFDs. For...

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.
