I purchased this scanner to scan slides from 40-50 years ago. I have used Epson scanners before in other settings, but never owned one myself. I am thrilled to finally own one that I can use at any time! The scanner processes four slides at a time. This takes a little time to go through an 80-slide carousel, but it's well worth the wait. I have not used all of the features of this scanner, but other reviews indicate that the other features are very useful. Epson makes a fine product, one that I would highly recommend.
I bought this scanner when my i900 died. It was a good general purpose scanner for medium quality. I needed to scan B&W pictures and the v600 did not have the necessary detail in the shadow area, which is the black in black and white. I returned it and bought a v850. Worth the difference in price. Excellent scans in B&W as well as high dpi color. Very happy with this product.
My dad began photographing our family in 1946. I got this scanner to scan 35 mm slides as well as black and white negatives. This summer I scanned 2000 slides and 100 black and white negatives. I know there are slide only scanners but they would be useless when I was done scanning. This is a legitimate flat bed scanner and now functions in that fashion. I use it with a Macbook pro which made the buttons on the scanner non-functional but I controlled the process on screen. The ICE software useful,but not intuitive.
