Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a wonderful scanner I purchased this scanner years ago, but did not install it until I had Windows 10 on my computer. The drivers for Windows 10 were not included on the disc that came for set up, but I downloaded them and it installed wonderfully well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Communication Error I love WHEN the scanner works! Randomly stop communicating with my computer. Did everything that Everyone says. Compatebility issues...works with Windows 8. For awhile then nothing again and again. Now can't get anything to work. Even reinstalled it. Ready to throw it out. I have wasted SO MUCH TIME. Wouldn't recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easy to use The best I can say for this scanner is, it is super easy to use. I purchased it to scan photos to my computer and the quality of the scanned photos is fair. I tried the higher resolution and it doesn't help at all. It is a shame as I invested so much money years ago in a top notch camera and 800 speed film only to have them look so so when scanned with the Epson V550.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but could be better The V550 makes great copies of photos and documents but the software could be a little better. The one thing I find to be a pain is that after every scan you need to save it to a file even if all your copies are going to the same place and it seems I am getting duplicate files if I select to over write the old file. Also when I right click on a photo to rename or delete the words are coming up in Chinese. Other than that it copies great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my V550 It is perfect inmast every way for my intended use of scannin/digitizing years of old 35mm film strips. That said, the film holder is very flimsy and requires a lot of fidigiting especially with curled film. I think an improvement would be easy to develop. I have found using a glass cover instead of the flimsy top is better, and I wonder why a completely glass fram couldn't be developed? Only other issue is the restriction to just a few film styes. I have a number of old 120mm strips that dont work with the V550. Would really give it a 4.5, better than good but just a few issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recommended So far, i’ve wasted two days trying to get the scanner to work. After finally scanning about 50 photos, I can no longer get it to scan at all. I’ll give it another day before returning it. I’m using Windows 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, fast and efficient. I puchased this two weeks ago to scan my fiance's old family photos. Have scanned nearly three thousand photos in that time. The scanner and software has taken tired looking photos look nearly new.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great hardware, outdated (and pretty much useless) software! I purchased this scanner in 2014 and used it extensively. The hardware works well and produces great results. Except for some design flaws - like location of the power switch, which is minor, and flimsy film holders, which is more serious - the scanner is very good. Main complaint is the software - Epson Scan was outdated even 5 years ago. I use Mac, and the 32-bit software (which Epson Scan is) is not supported by Catalina. The newer Epson Scan2 is 64-bit, but it has never been made available as an upgrade for V550 by Epson (I have a different Epson scanner that came with Epson Scan2, but it does not recognize V550). Other alternatives - Image Capture, VueScan, SilverFast etc. either do not support batch film scanning or ICE dust removal feature of the scanner, or both. Besides, third party software is not free and often is more expensive than the scanner itself! Epson really need to offer a replacement for Epson Scan to the owners of V550 and other great scanners that Epson produced not too long ago! Despite the software problems I gave V550 "good" rating, because it is still a great value for the money!
