This Epson V600 is the best scanner I have ever used. I needed one that would scan negatives and pictures so my grandson went on the internet and researched all of the scanners. He worked for a local photo store in my town and he said I should buy the Epson V600. It is amazing. It does everything I want it to do and more. I am so happy he researched this and found the BEST!!
Having used dell and HP these brother color printers and toners are great. Hated changing out an HP cartridge that still felt fairly full. These have a noticeable weight difference when empty and haven't gummed up like the Dell's.
Works as planned. I needed to scan several old 120 negatives and this scanner performed extremely well. I am now in the process of digitizing my vast collection of 4x6 prints. This scanner allows me to load and scan 3 photos each time. Instructions for software could be improved. It took some trial and error to finally get to what I wanted to do.
I bought the V600 start digital conversion and restoration project of Family photos and film. I have not started this project in earnest. The scanning app that I am using is Nuance Paperport 14. Before I start with photos and film I wanted to make sure to get accustomed to using it as a document scanner first. Note: I also have a HP Photosmart multi-use printer, scanner, copier. Getting back to the V600, the document scanning (Office Mode) is somewhat cumbersome. I didn't know I first needed to close out Preview (if you use Preview) first which erases preview image. It does not erase "the image", you then Scan. This just does not seem intuitive. HP allows to see a preview and while on the same window you select scan and you're done! In addition, once you Scan you need to close the Scan window and you'll see your scanned image populate the Paperport 14 desktop. It does not automatically close and populate when the scan completes. I believe this is part of the learning curve and the benefits of the V600 for my photo/film project will override the shortcomings as a document scanner.
