I have thousands of slides that need to be scanned into my computer, and after some market research I chose the Epson V600 as the best performance for the price. The scanner is very versatile as to the desired quality vs. time to scan, and has some powerful software to correct picture quality before the scan is done. I have made good use of the Color Restoration for old orangy slides, backlight correction, and the ICE dust removal. I use the Home mode and Professional mode for most of my scanning. See the other product reviews for hints on how to best do the scanning.
The V-600 is the next best thing to a dedicated slide and negative scanner. I am a professional photographer and I wanted a scanner that was versatile and produced scans high enough quality for smaller or daily use prints. The scanner does job.
I had to replace an old Epson 2450 scanner and purchased the V600. It scans in less than half the time of the 2450 an produces great scans. I love it. It also has the capability to scan slides and film strips which I'll do from time to time. It's the best scanner I've ever owned.
