So far I have used this scanner for slides and photos. Some of the slides were 50+ years old and were faded. Some also had dust that would not come off using a gentle microcloth and air brush. The scanner did an excellent job removing dust and restoring color. There were a few that I still had to bring into Photoshop, but overall the scanner did an excellent job. I do have an issue with Epson, though. I had an excellent Epson photo scanner that was almost as good as this scanner and had lots of used left in it. Epson quit updating its software after Windows XP so it became a huge paperweight. Yes, there is alternate software out there that will operate the scanner, and according to reviews does a good job. However, the cost of the software was over half the price of the V600 scanner. I opted for the new scanner which has some improved technology. In effect, Epson forces the user to buy a new scanner or buy after-market software that you hope will continue to do a good job with your equipment.
I love this scanner. It is so much faster than my Epson Perfection 4490 photo that I had used for a decade. The software is excellent and, if you have other Epson products connected - like I do, it's nice to have one piece of software for all devices that scan. I really like the digital ice for photos. Many scanners have color restoration software but only for slides and negatives not photos, too. This scanner also comes with a nice long cord which is handy. The scan quality is excellent - which is really what counts.
Love this scanner. The only thing I would change would be more sizes of frames to hold negatives. A lot of the negatives will not fit the ones that came with the scanner. I love being able to scan what I have though. And, does a good job scanning. The settings Could be a little more senior citizen friendly.
I purchased this scanner to scan slides from 40-50 years ago. I have used Epson scanners before in other settings, but never owned one myself. I am thrilled to finally own one that I can use at any time! The scanner processes four slides at a time. This takes a little time to go through an 80-slide carousel, but it's well worth the wait. I have not used all of the features of this scanner, but other reviews indicate that the other features are very useful. Epson makes a fine product, one that I would highly recommend.
