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.
The V-600 is the next best thing to a dedicated slide and negative scanner. I am a professional photographer and I wanted a scanner that was versatile and produced scans high enough quality for smaller or daily use prints. The scanner does job.
When I tried to use the InstallShield two of items had a error. One was Epson Scan and the other was ArcSoft. How do I resolve this problem before I turn on or connect the scanner to the laptop.
