Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I can see this is going to save some time I just bought this, had it unpacked and scanning within 15 minutes. This device is amazing! It scans super fast! The pictures look great and you can even save a second copy with basic edits(red eye removal, brightening, etc). If you don't like the edit, just delete it. The only thing I will tell everyone is to scan about 20-30 photos at a time, and keep them in order after you scan them, just incase you need to rescan any. Also, make sure you have a hard drive or something to back them up to, and have it labeled so you will know what it is 15 years from now. I have been waiting for this scanner for years! Thank you Epson for finally putting something out for the general public. Great tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooo fast! I bought this to digitize my family's collection of photos that have not seen the light of day for decades. It made quick work of the job - I was able to scan approx. 20,000 pictures in 7 days! It also did a great job with small and delicate pictures - no damage was done at all. Any really delicate pictures I put in the carrier sheet just to be safe. It did have trouble scanning thick polaroids, but it could handle thinner polaroids no problem. Be sure to regularly clean the rolls as they pick up dust and dirt and leave lines on photos- I used several cans of compressed air and microfiber cloths to do the job. I love this machine. I have a lot more pictures to go but this made it an enjoyable job rather than the tedious task it was with a flatbed scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson hits a Homerun with the FastFoto More than 3200 hundred photos scanned in less than 3 weeks and another moving box full of photos waiting for me to regain my composure. If you were really conscientious in recording the events of all your pictures I bow to you! The real chore of digitizing photos is recalling when and where this pack of photos were taken, because the time we spend with work, children other family and friends seems to have led us to leave the envelopes the pictures came in without any notes. The real frustration in the effort is to decide what to comment and what date reflects the photo when the photo has no date stamp. The older generation photos were a breeze with the sleeve Epson provides. I would be long dead before I attempted to scan all the photos in the 4 boxes we have. The survivors of my life would have to open the boxes, cringe and scream at me wondering why I left my past in such disarray! In the beginning we were organized and put photo albums together. Now they are a nuisance since you have to extract each photo and make neat piles to take a second to record each for posterity. I'm sure another few thousand photos await me in the last full box. Soon I'll have to put them on a network drive so the kids and grandkids can look at their past. Even though there is a popup every 500(?) photos telling you to wipe dust from the rollers I tried my best but, sorry, no dust. Yes, I used the Epson cloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to its name: FASTFOTO Glad I have this scanner. I have been able to scan several hundred photos in a short time. What a time saver as well as frustration saver. No more one picture at a time, lift, scan, lift, replace and repeat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Machine! I have scanned over 17000 hard copy photos using the 640. These were a variety of professionally developed and printed photos I took with my 35mm film camera (1964-1999) and those my father developed and printed in his darkroom (1935-1955), and newer commercial copies of my digital photos (1999-Present). The quality of the paper varied from slick to rough. The sizes varied from very tiny ( a couple of inches on each side) to 8 1/2 by 11. Without the 640, it would be impossible to complete this task in my lifetime. I scanned all at 600 dpi and did not ask the 640 to do any photo correcting. It's speed was absolutely amazing. The only issue I had was that since I was scanning a variety of paper hard copies of old and new photos, there was a lot of dust and paper residue which would adhere to the scanner lens mechanism. This caused me to have to watch all the scans as they popped up on my computer, in real time, and look for the tell-tale white streaks which would indicate some contaminant on the scanner lens. Then I would stop the scan process, open up the scanner, blow out the insides with a rubber blower brush, and use a damp micro-fiber cloth on the lens mechanisms. Then I would redo the ones with a white streak and continue. For old or dusty picture files, expect to do this about every 30 - 45 photos. I used the rubber blower brush most often, but each day after I was finished scanning, I would take the scanner outside and use a very powerful blower to totally blow out any paper or dust residue which might still be inside. The quality of the scans seemed very good. Maybe I could have achieved higher quality with my Epson flat bed scanner, but I would still be working on the first couple of hundred and probably would have abandoned this project because it was taking so long. The cost of this scanner is very high, but when you have thousands of photos like I did, the cost to send them to a commercial scan service would be much higher, plus you have to organize them all beforehand by size and date - a really painful task. I set up file folders for each year and tried to run all I had for each year at one time and put them into their respective yearly folders. The 640 let me work at my own pace, a thousand or so each day. When I got tired, I stopped. Bottom line: If you have a lot of photos to scan, this device is the way to go. It is fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Incredibly Impressed with THIS machine. To whom it may concern. I was hoping it would do what Iwanted it to do. And it DID. The Epson FF-640 did everything it was billed up to do ... All my photos were scanned fast. Thousands and thousands of photos from 50 years worth of photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, fast results! We were looking for an easy solution to scanning in our 1,000's of printed photos. After using an all-in-one, where you lift the top and place the photo to be scanned, we needed something more efficient. We searched online and continued to find good reviews on the FF-640. We purchased it at Best Buy and hooked it up. In a few short minutes we were scanning in photos by the hundreds. Yes, it is that easy. We adjusted the resolution from the fastest setting (300dpi) to the slightly slower (600dpi) setting, but were still scanning in photos at lightning speed. It actually made the scanner process fun. The scanner is a little pricey for what we had in mind, but the quality and speed made it a good decision. *The scanner did not come with the installation disc, instead directions to download directly from the website, which should mean the most recent version is always available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Item with a Few "If Only's" I bought this about a month ago and has it ever saved me some time. Like most around my age, I'm going through the family print "archives" and keeping some (in digital format) and tossing the rest. This scanner has saved me so much time compared to the alternative of usng a flatbed scanner, which is what I started to use on this project. The quality of the images is very good. My "if only's" are two: if only the software allowed for saving scans in .tif format (it saves only in compressed jpeg) and if only the naming options were a bit easier to use. My suggestion to those buying this great time-saver is to review each batch you scan for streak marks. Because I was working with old photos, I had to clean the scanner twice (not the rollers, which I clean as recommended about every 500 scans), but the protective glass over the scanning area. I say that because you don't want to scan hundreds of photos and then go back later and find there was a line streaking through all of them. A little eyeglass cleaner on a soft cloth and I was back in business in minutes. I would recommend this scanner to anyone looking for an easy-to-maintain, fast, easy-to-use scanning alterantive to a flatbed scanner for family photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite toy I really would purchase this a second time if needed. I've become a little addicted to scanning photos !

Epson FastFoto FF-640 Receives 3.5/5; “Good” rating from PCMag.com

"The Epson FastFoto FF-640 combines the speed of a sheet-fed scanner with the ability to produce and archive scans of photo prints in either original or enhanced form. It can scan documents, though it's better for image than searchable formats. It's best if you have thousands of old snapshots or other small-format photos to scan, but there are more economical options for scanning up to a few thousand prints, and far less expensive flatbed photo scanners (like the Editors' Choice Epson V39) if you only occasionally need to scan photos."
