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.
I have been looking for a scanner which can do slides, negatives, photos, and documents . . . EASILY! So far I've done over 1,000 slides (some of which are almost 50 years old) and negatives without a hitch. Color correction is pretty good; however, with software on my computer the final result is very good. The additional software allows me to correct spots, creases, and defects. I have a long, long way to go; however, I am confident that I'll get through the whole process without problems. One thing: You have to be patient as this is not the fastest process. The scanner will do four slides at a time which takes a minute or two. I settled on the 600 dpi resolution which gives me a photo from 1.5-3.0 MB which is about the same size taken by a good digital camera.
I am so pleased with the quality and ease of use this scanner provides. I am scanning slides and negatives and viewing images that I haven't seen in 30 years. It scans 4 slides or a strip of negatives but separates them into individual files, with up to 1200 dpi. I can't wait to see what other gems I discover!
