Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this scanner I owned the V800 scanner for several years and had quite a bit of experience with it. I recently purchased this V850 model of that scanner. It does everything that I could ever want a scanner to do - and it does it FAST. It is much faster that the V800 and I had thought that was the ultimate scanner! I am at this time going through and scanning all of my old negatives. (I have many thousands!) I can scan three strips at a time by the time I have my second holder loaded the scanner is most of the way done with the first batch. I highly recommend this scanner to anyone needing a high resolution scanner that can do reflective and transparent media.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V850 Pro Scanner We purchased the V850 recently as an upgrade for our V750 and F500 Scanners, which were great, but we wanted the latest scanner because of how much film we'll be scanning in the next few years. Epson scanners get the job done at a professional level. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid scanner I needed a scanner that would scan 4X5 negatives, as my V600 does not and my beloved old 4990 finally died. This is the one, and it does a good job. The slide and negative holders are a big improvement over those that came with the V600, though the V850 does not scan 35mm as sharply as my Konica Minolta Scan Dual IV. Still, I am very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good if not perfect film scanner I bought the Epson Perfection V850 in 2014 almost exclusively for scanning medium format negatives, but also as a scanner for general use. Overall, it has performed very well. I use it with the supplied Epson software for general use, and find that entirely adequate, but limitations with the bundled SilverFast software led me to use VueScan for negative scanning and the combination of both works well. The quality of reproduction is good, not up to drum scan standard, but completely satisfactory for most uses. I have not tried the wet scan method that is likely to enhance the scanning performance of the V850. I do not as a rule use any of the noise and dirt reduction systems available with this scanner's supplied software as I find they are too broad in effect, preferring to scan as clean a negative as possible with minimal processing and do spot repair of specks, scratches and dust with Photoshop. The equipment is reliable as shown by several years of use, constructed to good consumer standards. Like some others have noted, I do find the negative holders for 120 film to be poorly designed with some difficultly loading and aligning 120 strips, although once properly seated the scanning process works well. The plastic film holders do attract dust and require a clean with a lens wipe or a good blowing between uses to keep the dirt to a minimum, but are fine with those provisos. Apart from the seating issues with 120 negative film (not present for other film sizes), I find the negative and slide holders to be easy to use and all are well adapted to the scanner. They are of adequate construction, all plastic. Paper and printed photograph scans also work well. Black and white and color reproduction is good if you pay attention to the scanning software settings and choose the best for the type of film you are using. You will need to spend some time to master the best settings for this scanner, although immediate use results are probably good enough for most people. Resolution is good too, with lots of options for bit depth and hence resulting file size. I've not tried other scanners in the Perfection series so I cannot compare, but I do use a dedicated Plustek 35mm negative scanner for that type of film. The V850 simply cannot match the quality of the Plustek, although it is far faster to operate and can scan multiple sets of 35mm negatives at once, a point in its favor. Overall, a very useful piece of equipment to those of us photographing with film.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Verdict is NOT in yet. It depends.... Got the scanner up and running. No problem. Installed the software. Um..problem. Not the version of SliverFAST it comes with. Mentioned in another review. Maybe that will get taken care of. Installed the x-rite i1Profiler software. After x-rite points to Epson, Epson points back to x-rite I've got that figured out. However, I've got a profile what the heck do I do with it? The scanner color is way off. I'm scanning art which needs to be spot-on. The biggest issue is there is no user guide that says start here. Do this for that. I thought maybe I need to point the SilverFast to the ICC profile, but I don't have the correct version installed and it doesn't look like I can do that for what is installed. And the scanner is way off in color and since I'm scanning art it needs to be accurate. So now I've got to chase down how to use this darn thing correctly. Frustrating. So Bobby, if you're going to give me any advice, send me links or documentation to solve my problem. I've already called tech support. You have no idea what simple documentation can do for how you (Epson) preceived. I'm pretty technical, but not in scanning nuances. Can I recommend this product? Not yet. Can I rate it? Not yet. I'm not making any recommendations until I'm up and running and how well the support is that I hope to get. I should not be this hard to get up and running with a scan that is accurate in color. Right?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a nice job. Bought this a month ago mainly for digitizing slides and camera film strips. Does the job just hope I don't wear it out too soon...I have thousands of things to digitize. Just wish the scanning bed was a bit bigger....the pages I scan are a bit bigger than the scan area, so I have to leave some blank spaces. I can fix the film scans in Photo Shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works exactly as advertised Bought this about a month ago to scan family slides, negatives and photographs. I have had a chance to work with it for a while now and am 250 slides into the collection. So far, it is exceeding my expectations and my abilities. I find the various videos available to be helpful and am learning every day. Lots of software to make your photos better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install with one slight problem... I installed the software and went to register the scanner with the serial number US5W023389 and got an error stating that it was the wrong serial number. I tried several times with no luck... Until I tried US5WO23389 -- see photo of original SN & you'll realize why I typed a 0 instead of an O.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile I am a new Epson user. I purchased the V850 to replace both a flatbed and film scanner that both bit the dust after 15 years. The V850 meets all my needs. However, the film holder for 35mm slides sucks. I could not get a crisp scan using that holder. I found I need to place the slide directly on the bed to get a decent scan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with performance Bought the scanner primarily to convert a very large number of slides but found some very old negatives that came out beautifully. I thought I would only ever use the slide holders but because of all the old negatives of all sizes I managed to utilize every tray so was thankful for having them. I find scanning slides the easiest and more productive and with the 2 slide holders provided increases productivity substantially. I found the Silverfast program to be confusing at first but once I got familiar with it I found it to be very powerful and productive with more features then I can properly use. But even an amateur like me can take advantage of most of it.
