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.
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.
After several months of research, I bought the Perfection V600 in February to digitize my family photo albums, which were literally crumbling from age. This scanner allowed me to scan, restore color, and make other corrections in a single step. The results are excellent, and I will be giving commercially printed copies to each of my children for Christmas this year. Couldn't have done it with the scanner I had before this one.
