Love this scanner. The only thing I would change would be more sizes of frames to hold negatives. A lot of the negatives will not fit the ones that came with the scanner. I love being able to scan what I have though. And, does a good job scanning. The settings Could be a little more senior citizen friendly.
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.
