So far I have used this scanner for slides and photos. Some of the slides were 50+ years old and were faded. Some also had dust that would not come off using a gentle microcloth and air brush. The scanner did an excellent job removing dust and restoring color. There were a few that I still had to bring into Photoshop, but overall the scanner did an excellent job. I do have an issue with Epson, though. I had an excellent Epson photo scanner that was almost as good as this scanner and had lots of used left in it. Epson quit updating its software after Windows XP so it became a huge paperweight. Yes, there is alternate software out there that will operate the scanner, and according to reviews does a good job. However, the cost of the software was over half the price of the V600 scanner. I opted for the new scanner which has some improved technology. In effect, Epson forces the user to buy a new scanner or buy after-market software that you hope will continue to do a good job with your equipment.
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.
