Bought this for a scanning project and it does the job nicely. Fujitsu is a top scanner brand. You do have to replace the consumable items to keep it working, but it rarely jams and scans clearly.
I have had various scanners but upgraded to this one to allow scanning of 120 size film slides as well as 35mm slides in particular. Even thought it did not come with a mask designed in particular for the medium format slide, I found that removing the hinged part from the film holder mask allowed me to scan 3 at a time easily while leaving them in their mount. The software is smooth and easily adjustable for color correction on individual slides among the 3 being scanned. It worked equally well for scanning 4 of the 35mm slides at a time in the supplied mount. Note that slides must be scanned with the inside cover of the lid removed to permit top illumination. This is done by following instructions to simply sliding it out of the tabs on each side of the lid. Scanning of other documents on the bed are smooth and fast. The bed is larger than letter size so even slightly oversize photos or documents will lay down easily. The cover is articulated to permit it laying down on an open book, if necessary. Lots of options to facilitate anything I have had a need for. Quality is fine, easy to operate, fast, simple saving operations to files. I am totally pleased, especially for the price.
The scans of 35 mm slides are spectacular, ONCE I downloaded several drivers and utilities. I would think that you would keep the units that are being shipped out in 2015 a little more up to date than having to go back to 2013 to download essential parts for the scanner. Very frustrating. That being said, the scanner is top notch and I'm happy with my purchase. If the need arises I will purchase Epson products again.
