Review: Epson Perfection V100 Photo scanner


Inexpensive Scanner with Impressive Features

Excellent priceg.Nice build quality.Full-featured Epson scan software

Film and slide scanning could be better.A little bit noisy

Many users ignore low cost scanners because they think, how can such a cheap product produce anything worthwhile? Well, things have changed, and as technology improves, less expensive products are more advanced. Epson proves this point with the Epson

A Standalone Scanner : Epson Perfection V100 Photo Scanner


Unlike multifunction devices, where the scanner is usually a bolt-on basic unit, a dedicated scan can provide additional features.

It has been quite a while since I last had the opportunity to try out a new standalone flatbed scanner. The main reason for this long gap is down to the popularity of multifunctional and all-in-one devices. These types of product do have the decided...

Good All around scanner


Great price! Works perfect for photos, negatives, and slides. Software is easy to use and stable. Replacing a Canon Scanner with software that drove me nuts

None as far as I can tell

Good, but not great


for scanning slides, this is great for the price, the color restoration is great, and the dust removal is so so. Takes about 4-8min scan time on 4 slides at 300dpi, which comes out to around 1800x1200 pixels.

Scans slides with ease. it comes with a place to store the slide/negative attachment which is usefull for those of us who tend to lose things. quality is great when scanning slides, and photos alike. speed is ok

i have yet to get the buttons on the front to work even after a full software install and a restart. the PDF one when used in auto scan seems to not OCR, and just sends an image to the PDF file. to get a true text pdf you must first scan using the...

Poor graphics and unconventional arcade driving = poor game


This is my 2nd outing with a Ridge Racer game, the previous being with the original RR for the PSP. I had some fun with the PSP version so I rented this title for my PS3. I was very disappointed. As you probably already know, Ridge Racer is an ...

Drift racing, themed after Fast 'n Furious (if you like that trashy movie)

Poor graphics (rushed into release), singular gameplay, hard to win
