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.
I bought this scanner in order to scan the 1,000s of photographs, slides, and negatives I have collected over a lifetime. So, far I have only used it to scan photos and it has performed excellently.
This scanner is much faster than the HP all-in-one scanner it replaced. Seems to do a good job on pictures and documents. Like that the scan utility has some knobs to turn, though if you lose track you can screw up later scans. Slides with high resolution and ICE on take a long time, but the results are worth it. Satisfied.
I have been using Epson printers and scanners for years. The V600 is wonderful. Scanning is of great quality. The ice feature is great but takes a long time. That is the only downside. The film scanning is outstanding. I am a professional photographer and I do a lot of restorations and this scanner is just what I need.
