This scanner is absolutely amazing. My entire desk full of paper and clutter was gone overnight. First it scans the front and the back of the paper in one feed. Pluss multiple sheets get saved into one pdf. You can save the files automatically to any folder (in my case dropbox). It;s super easy to use and probably the best investment i ever made.
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.
I purchased the V370 Photo Scanner for the primary purpose of transferring a collection of 50+ year old slides to digital media while they were still in good shape. I was a bit skeptical about the units ability to capture the slides with good resolution and ability to deal with faded and color shifted Ektachrome slides. The Kodachrome slides had not aged appreciably. However, the sales person suggested that if I was not satisfied with the performance, I could return it. To make a long story short, it is not going back to the store. The V370 does everything I had needed done and more. The automatic color corrections for the Ektachrome slides, while not perfect, are perfectly acceptable. My only wish is that the cleverly designed slide/film strip adapter would hold more than 4 slides at a time, but I suspect the light source in the lid is the limiting factor. The V370 is well worth the cost and offers substantially more utility than a single purpose slide/film scanner.
I purchased the V600 mid-year 2015. I have been taking photos since 1957 (my first camera was a Kodak Starflash). I am scanning my negatives to be able to give my three sons all of the photos my wife and I have shoot over nearly 50 years of marriage, and all of them growing up. The Epson is the best scanner I have tried (had three prior to the Epson). I scan the negatives using ICE and then sometimes touch them up in Adobe Lightroom. 40,000 neagatives and still going strong...LOVE THE EPSON V600!!!!!
