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 am blown away by the quality of HiRes scanning. I have been scanning old family photos, and when I set the scanner to its highest scanning ability I have been able to print old grainy sepia tone images, which were originally 5 x 7 in size, to large format beautiful b/w images with great detail! I LOVE this scanner!
I have had outstanding results from this scanner. Very easy to use, simple setup, settings are easy to use and all scans are perfect. From pictures to documents this is the best scanner for the job. Highly recommend this scanner. The name says it all. Perfection.
