Rated 5 out of 5 by from Owned 2 years so far I have scanned in excess of 3000 slides in the past two years; some of the slides are as old as 60 years. The quality of the slides have ranged from excellent to downright color-shifted. I've been using the manual (professional) mode and adjusting color balance and cleaning up. Overall I am quite pleased with the results. I use ICE when necessary; it isn't totally perfect but it does an overall good job (one of the better cleanups is attached). The manual is not very useful for the amateur; lots of additional research is needed to clarify what the controls do. I blame Windows more than Epson for the fact that the software temporarily 'hangs' on a regular basis. After a few moments the system clears itself and processing continues. This issue is not only restricted to the Epson software - even Microsoft products have this issue. I wish there was a Linux version of the software and drivers (I'm not that good with gimp). I have recommended this device to friends and one did buy it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly DISAPPOINTED! After about ten years of very satisfied use, I replaced my old desktop computer. In addition, I decided to replace my Epson Perfection 4180 Photo scanner with (what I thought, after ten years) would be a GREAT UPGRADE. As I said, Slightly DISAPPOINTED! Yes, the new scanner works fine - very slightly better than my ten year old 4180. BUT, the software looks like a throw-back! What used to take me just a few keystrokes now makes me jump through MANY, MANY hoops! (basically to select the type of file ("PDF" or "JPG") AND then to "BROWSE" to FIND a desired location where the scanned file would be located. VERY FRUSTRATING!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Works better than I thought I bought this probably about a year ago. I had no idea it would work so good. I gave it a 4 star because sometimes I have to click on the scan icon more than once..it says there is no communication. But that could be my laptop. You can easily scan 4 photos at the same time and more as long as they aren't touching. I have also used the negative scanner and the pictures come out just like they were the original photos!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love it I've had mine 2 yrs. now and it's never failed me. I'm a senior but find it easy to use. There's a couple of good YouTube videos that taught me to use the main purposes that I need. I'd like to learn more about other features that would enhance my artwork that I save in pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy To Use I bought this last month. I had over 2,000 old 35mm negatives in a box at the tope of the closet in my home office, along with about 500 slides. Dated from 1962 to about 1975. With my Epson V550 Photo Scanner I was able to convert all but about 1% to a file on my computer for sorting, "touching up" and making ready for printing. I love it! It only took about 10 minutes getting use to the process and then BAM! I was finished within a week. Now I'm going through old photos, which I scan and print for family and friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New setup So far, it has not downloaded the software properly. It is missing files. So I turned off all fire walls and Norton. Going to try again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I have used this Epson Photo Scanner for about 2 months. It was very easy to set up and is very easy to use. I have scanned many pictures with no problems. It has worked well both for black and white and color photos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A large step up from my Epson 350 Image reproduction has a special quality and feeling that emulates from the original. Outstanding sharp crisp image quality with accurate color, tone, temperature, contrast and saturation, one of the best I have seen at any price point. Darker edges on paper artwork scans. Difficulty loading the flimsy plastic carrier with negatives, edges slip out consistently, tedious and time consuming.
