This scanner was purchased to replace an older model from Canon, which I thought had served me well. Scans from this scanner of the exact same negatives soon showed me that I could get much more detail and sharpness from my old negatives than I had been getting. I have only used this scanner for documents and 120 film negative scans and it works very well for both. Primary reason for choosing this scanner was fellow photographers comments, price and my complete satisfaction with 2 separate Epson printers. Overall, very pleased with this purchase.
Pros: I love that the software detects separate objects and automatically selects and scans them into separate files. This is great when scanning lots of photos for family trees. The DMax is very good. Thanks to Epson for listing that info; Canon won't release it on their scanners, even on request. Good support for Windows 7. I like that the lid holds itself up both at 45 and 90 degrees. Most brands don't offer that except on all-in-one models. Cons: What cons? None yet?
