This scanner is a replacement for a 10-year-old ScanSnap fi-5110E02. The major difference between it and my old scanner is speed and an improved paper feed. The software is essentially the same (I was using S1500 software) and the end result is also close to the same as the fi scanner. Pictures are better with the new scanner. I give this scanner the highest marks. One issue that did arise was that the site to download the Nuance PDF Converter software has been down. For me this is not a problem since I have both Nuance PDF Converter Pro and Adobe Acrobat.
This is my second scanner. The first was very hard to use. I opened the box the Epson came in and after the first hour I had scanned about thirty slides. Great results.
I bought this scanner expressly to scan a load of 35MM negatives that I have collected over the years. It works just great. I'll be busy for quite a while but will have them all saved on disks.
