Rated 2 out of 5 by from Confusing Interface / OK scans I have many negatives, slides and 8mm film to put into a digital format. I was very confused by the interface, which seemed to alter with a second interface. I had so much trouble getting through the process that I called support, but they were no help. The scanned images were very good from colored slides. The B&W negatives were OK. I was disappointed there was no '8mm' as I thought there would be..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not happy with the scanner software I have several hundred really old negatives (1930's and up) to scan that were not common sizes in the 1970's to today. When I set the size of the negatives to their actual size the software automatically changes it for the next scan. Makes my job much harder. When I make a change to the settings they should stay that way until I change them or until I close the program. The Hardware does a nice job of copying my pictures once the settings are made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slow, slow, slow.... I was really excited to try this scanner with my new iMac. Found it odd that it came with a CD with the driver software as my computer doesn’t have a CD drive. Maybe that was a clue. Anyway, installed everything and tried the first few scans. The software is poorly designed, at least for running on a Mac. And the scanner is slow. I mean really slow. I tried it with dust removal feature on a 3.4 inch black and white picture and literally it took 10 minutes to complete the scan with much of that time seemingly siting idle. However the software doesn’t really give you any clue as to what is happening. Sorry Epson but I can’t recommend this unless you fix the speed issue and update your software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, quick and great quality I've had this V550 for about three years now and just moving it to a new laptop. I've been using scanners since the early 90's and needed this model to archive thousand of old family 35mm slides dating back to 1943. The V550 has done an excellent job, capturing thousands of images, correcting color, removing dust and scratches, and steadily advancing me through this massive collection. It takes about three minutes to scan each slide (done in batches of four), but the results are quite spectacular. I scan to a 4 x 6 format at 300 dpi, resulting in an 1800 x 1200 resolution which is perfect for modern flat screen TV's or for making a first-quality print. This scanner has been extremely reliable. I'm a retired illustrator, photographer with more than 40 years in the business of graphics. I'm very satisfied. Note that I've scanned at four times the resolution with no better results... 300 dpi at whatever final size you need is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for scanning negatives. Bought this to scan negatives as the dedicated 35mm scanner I had cropped the negatives. The Epson scanner allows manual "framing" of the negative so there is no cropping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality Scans I love the quality of the scans, especially when scanning 35mm slides! And the Auto Scan function is great, too. So why can't you do color restoration in home mode?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from replaced my 500 workhorse of a scanner-I find the multitude of neg & slide holders a pain, old negs are curled so much they fall through the holder, much easier just to lay the film on the glass, as you have to do with oversize & undersize negs-You can do 2 rows of slides that way-great value, great machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V550 Review I bought my scanner some months ago, after scanning 5 B&W & 2 Color film I can say that it does the job perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanner I've had this scanner for a few months now, and have used it to scan slides, 120 negatives, and 35mm negatives. The software works well, and does a great job of identifying and isolating individual frames. The scanner comes with inserts for multiple film sizes plus sides. Bought this as a refurb unit, but its worked flawlessly.
