My trusty old Epson scanner suddenly gave up the ghost after more than 7 years just as a large scanning project was to begin. My new V600 stepped right in. The new software was very similar to my previous version, so there was a minimal learning curve. The scanner lid is 90-degrees from the previious one, giving me more open desk space and bringing the onboard controls closer. The only downside is common to most every scanner of this size, a recessed glass scanning surface. Many times I get early 1900's mounted photographs that are larger than the bed size. This requires multiple scans of a slightly bent object and time spent putting the pieces together. If absolute sharpness is not necessary, the glass from my old scanner comes to the rescue. Wish there was a 4.5 rating!!
This has been a great scanner and the price is right. I have had no problems with it since purchasing it a few years ago. I have had good luck scanning negatives and old slides, but a flatbed scanner is not as good as a dedicated film scanner. It is for that reason that I gave it a 4 star rating and I feel that it could more intuitive.
I purchased this unit to transfer all my family negatives and archive. It has done a great job and the software is easy to use. It is light weight but performs like a higher priced unit. I've had numerous scanners throught the years and this ranks on the top. Epson did a good job.
