Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, almost perfect... I bought this scanner to take on a trip to my ancestral lands to digitize family photos of folks that I visited. It has performed very well for this purpose. Batteries last a long time, it's compact, and the quality of the scans are good. There are only a couple of things worthy of mentioning that made me shave 1 star from an otherwise perfect score. First, a minor annoyance. It would've been very helpful if Epson included a thin plastic sleeve that photos could be inserted into in order to make the scanning go more smoothly. Some old photos may have creases or debris from being glued to collages, and the sleeve would ensure the scanner doesn't get dirty and the feed is smooth. Second, and more annoying, is that the "auto align" software feature seems to be TOO smart. Instead of the intuitive interpretation of the feature, where you'd expect the software to examine the edges and auto-align them so that the scanned image is straight, it instead seems to look at the content of the image and align the photo to what it thinks is the level view. The result is that the images almost always come out even more misaligned than if the feature is turned off. For example, if the subjects tilt their heads in a photo, the software rotates the image so that the heads are upright, resulting in a tilted final image. I've found that disabling this feature is the only option, combined with gently helping the photo through the scanner. Great little scanner, all things considered, especially if you manage to purchase it on sale like I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job I've had this product for a few months now, and I recommend it highly. It does its job, and it doesn't take up much space (a valuable quality if you're like me and have limited desk space). Easy to install, and very practical for the cost.
