I have had the V600 for one day now and have scanned a couple hundred medium format negatives directly into iPhoto, successfully. I use with a MacBook Pro on OSX 10.7.2 (Lion). Once I figured out that I needed to access the scanner through the System Preferences, I was OK. There is a slight glitch in that every once in a while either the scanner is not available or it doesn't give me the opportunity to select transparency scanning. When this happens I must restart my computer. This has happened about 5 times for the hundreds of scans, so it isn't too bad, but I'd like to see that little problem go away in future driver updates. Overall I am very pleased.
Pros: Easy to set-up and use with Windows 7 64 bit system. Great results for documents, photo prints, and 35mm slides (some 70 years old). I have scanned over 3000 35mm slides. Speed, resolution and faithfulness to the original were excellent. Cons: minor issues & annoyances only - slide tray just sits on the scanner glass rather than being locked in place (seems like a small design change could make this easier to use); scanner will sometimes start when cover is lifted (less than 1% of the time); & some slides have been rotated 90 degrees when scanned (yes, I did check the slides to insure that they were put in the correct orientation and it was the software that rotated the output).
I bought this scanner in April of 2014 and have had no problems with it. I particularly like the LED light system and its quick warm up. Between this and my previous V500, I have scanned thousands of slides and photographs. I am pleased with the ease of use of the scanning software, and the quality of the scans. Whenever I have had need to seek assistance, I have been treated courteously, and each time the issues have been solved. I would recommend this scanner for its price and ease of use.
I love the printer!My husband and I arent the most computer illertiate so we had a hard time setting up but got hooked to a.s.a.p data systems inc. and they helped us through it great!
