Good scanner, works great, price is right. All is good with this unit in terms of performance as a scanner. Instructions leave much to be desired, way too intuitive, not enough written about "How to scan" , "How to copy". etc. All is learned by trial and error.
This scanner is much faster than the HP all-in-one scanner it replaced. Seems to do a good job on pictures and documents. Like that the scan utility has some knobs to turn, though if you lose track you can screw up later scans. Slides with high resolution and ICE on take a long time, but the results are worth it. Satisfied.
This scanner does much better than the scanner I used before. Unfortunately, scanners as a group are very low tech copy machines. Processing software can be good but the physical process is antiquated. Slides especially suffer. Slides are film mounted between cardboard which is thicker than the film itself. This means every slide is out of focus compared to prints. Why there couldn't be a slide focus feature seems puzzling. Just a knob to adjust focus would be nice. That might mean something more than just a surface glass for imaging the print, maybe a slot over the imaging mechanism on some sort of slide tray instead of the glass top. We are taking images of planets millions of miles away, but we can't scan a slide in focus yet. I think Epson could do it if they wanted to bad enough.
