I bought this scanner almost 2 months ago and I am amazed at how well it performs. Scanners came a long way in about 15 years since I bought my last one. Scanning negatives is so easy and results are so much better..
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.
Not only is the v600 an excellent slide scanner, it is also a great slide restorer You can eliminate imperfections and return original color. My thousands of 1960s and later slides have been digitalized and preserved forever.
I replaced an older HP scanner with this and have been thoroughly pleased. It is not a full bed scanner when using the transparency hood, but worked well for 620, 120 and 35mm slides and transparencies. The color correction on faded slides and photos did an amazing job. I have been able to reduce boxes of old photos and negatives to a folder on my hard drive.
