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.
I bought this scanner a few months ago but wanted to wait until I had a chance to use it on different types of images before commenting. I love this scanner! I have been waiting for something like this to hit the market for some time. I have scanned hundreds of negatives and many slides. I am even considering rescanning the old photographs I have already scanned using my printer. That is how good this scanner works for me. In my opinion there is no comparison to anything I have done from home. This scanner has paid for itself - just with the negatives - several times over.
I had an Hp flatbed and use a Macintosh computer as I am a retouching artist. The Hp was OK but they neglected to update the software with Apple's penchant for constant OS improvements. I looked for a new scanner and looked to Epson since I have 3 of their printers and have been happy with performance and support. The epson is elegant in design and the software well supports its features. I like the location of the controls and even though it seems like a small thing, I really like that the lid stays up when you open it. When you are positioning multiple pieces of artwork on the glass it frees up both hands to do the work. The resolution is great and warm up time is minimal.
