Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT I use itBought my 1st Epson scanner in 1999 and refuse to use any other brand of photo scanner. There is so much you can do with it to make sure your end results come out with the highest quality possible. I still learn something new every time I use it. When I purchased this one, I told the sales guy I wanted the best, top of the line scanner hey had. This is the one he handed me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V550 Photo Color ScannerI purchased this scanned 2 months ago because I received a lot of family slides from the Estate of my Uncle and Aunt.The scanning process for slides is very easy and produced excellent results as well as scanning pictures. I have not yet tried scanning negatives but I am confident that process will be just as easy as the slides were.I am very happy that I purchased this scanner.I scan lots of photo's for genealogy reasons.I have already recommended this scanner to several friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V550 Photo Color ScannerVery easy setup and scanning operation. No need to wait up for scanning in pictures. This is a very fast scanner and the resolution is excellent. This was my first scanner purchase and after using a friends slower unit, I was pleasantly surprised how easy it operated and that I can just connect and start up. Only thing I wish it was was a wireless scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New scannerMy Epson scanner works fine. The only issue is, I wish that the on-off switch was a toggle switch in stead of an in-out button leaving you wondering if you really turned the thing on or not. Also, it would have been better to have placed it on or near the front instead of the rear near the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a good startSo you go through the set-up procedure. At Step Four you press the "Scan" button and nothing happens. It looks very much like the power cord, the step-down transformer and its output cord are not supplying electric power to the scanner. Another outlet was tried with the same results. All connections were unplugged and reset--no difference. The only things I can think of it that the transformer isn't function or there is some kind of break in the connecting lines. Not a good way to start with a new scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice scannerIt was time to scan in a whole lot of slides, and I was not too happy with the results I was getting from a couple of older scanners. This unit got a rave review in a newspaper column, and I found a refurb unit at the Epson store.It did the job very nicely, and I look forward to trying it out with some B&W negatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial ReviewLooking to replace my Epson All-In-One for scanning and copying purposes, the V550 has exceeded my expectations. It is quiet, efficient, was a breeze to set up. I look forward to many years of service. I plan to provide an update in six months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of equipment!I've used Epson printers and printer/scanners before, so had an idea of what to expect, but was not prepared to be this impressed by the V550. The software installation was very easy and straightforward, and the software itself is clear and simple to use. All of the options (and there are many) are clearly available and those that I've used have functioned flawlessly. I'd read reviews noting the "loud" sound produced while in some scanning modes, but have found that not to be the case with mine. It operates quietly and with surprising speed considering the density of the scans I do for photo and slide retouching. I'm extremely pleased with this scanner and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting quality scans of photos, slides and negatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ScannerI have owned an Epson V550 flatbed scanner for a long time. I use it at home to scan LP record covers and other personal art work. when we needed a scanner to back-up images at Mom's house after she died, I was pleased to see that the V550 was still on the market. So now I have another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yetThis is easily the best scanner I've owned, and I've had several over the years, including an H-P six-color job that wasn't much good at all. The Epson is fast, easy to use, and has the best software of any I've had. The lid detents in a partially-opened position, a really convenient feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI currently have about five Epson Scanners and about five printers. I can find no fault in any of them, this scanner is probably the lowest price scanner THAT I HAVE AND IT IS GREAT. A really good buy.My earliest Epson scanner is a Perfection 2450 and I also have V770.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Admirable MachineHave only scanned fifteen photographs but every one has been reproduced exactly (even better) as I intended. So far the machine's precision and operating ease are better than expected. Only one caveat: I use Windows 8.1 and Office 2013, which required unique loading of the scanner software due to the ABBYY portion. Without that unique loading, Office 2013 is stymied; but Epson Support walked me through the fix with ease.Wonderful instrument!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from new scannerI always used an HP scanner ,but I needed a new computer and there was no driver for my perfectly good scanner .HP did not provide a driver ,so I looked for a scanner that would work with my computer .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from setup and initial observationSetup is easy and straight forward.I had an earlier make of Epson V500 and the slide frame does not sit securely as the V500 did. It slips around a little. The V500 felt better built.Otherwise it seems to be about the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SurprisingAs a former Navy Photographer and Graphic designer I was keen on finding something that really worked. I bought the V550 for scanning negatives. I found that not only was the scanning quality surprisingly good on the 35mm negatives, the software had enough flexibility to allow me to include the options that I wanted the software to take of and eliminate those I wanted to do myself. Prior to this purchase I used an outside service. My scans are either equal to or exceed those by outside services. It is easy to set up and start. Incredible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V550 is as advertised - so farMy wife has used the V550 to scan some 1,000 slides and it has worked as advertised. We are very pleased so far and would recommend this scanner.It installed perfectly on our Windows based PC. Simply follow the instructions. Although the software is not graphically current with technology as a Windows based system, it is thus far working fine. We've not had to use many of the options, but the ones we selected for scanning slides have done a great job. Color enhancement and scratch drop out seem to be working as expected. Again, just follow the instructions.I'm looking forward to using it to scan pictures and documents (for loading into Word) and I expect no problems based on its performance so far.I would strongly recommend the scanner, even for a novice. My wife is not a rocket scientist and she has still managed to master its use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V550Really like this product. Easy to use and impressed that I am able to scan several prints at a time and it treats each as individual photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI have been amazed at the ease of use of the Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner. Just lay the picture you wish to scan on the glass, lower the lid, press the button and bingo you have a perfect copy of that treasured photo on your PC or other device that you wish. The scan takes only a few seconds and comes out perfect.I have even scanned important documents that I wish to have a permanent record of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Setup and useThe V550 is a great little scanner, but, directions are a bit vague as to initial setup. Words as to function of switches would be helpful.Software should give the operator the option of where to store scanned images and ability to annotate them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great photo scanner!I have just had this scanner for a short while but I am extremely pleased with it. I am using to scan black and white and color negatives. It works very well, producing extremely high resolution photos. The scans come out as positive images, which I edit with Photoshop. The quality of scanned negatives does exceed that of digital photos, even with a good digitial SLR camera. I am using the scanner in conjunction with the Artesan 1430 printer, and am getting professional quality large format prints. Its a great combo. I am putting my enlarger away again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scans slides wellI was able to use the scanner to convert the family slides to digital. The scanner is easy to use and the pictures turn out great! The scanner has now become my filing system. It's wonderful to convert paper to digital! For the two professional credentialing organizations I belong to, continuing education credits need to be submitted every couple years. Scanning these documents and saving them on a flash drive makes this process so much easier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome productsI've been using Epson printers and scanners for close to 15 years. I do photo restoration as well as film scanning for clients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, but..This scanner is good, but sometimes it doesn't work as billed. You are supposed to be able to place several photos at once on glass, and as long as they are at least .8" apart, scanner is supposed to reconige as separate photos and make a file for each. But about 1/3 of the time, it doesn't work like that and will add two photos to one file, even if they are 3" apart! Very frustrating! I've read the PDF manual, but no help. Cleaned glass and white sheet, but no help. Intermittent it works, just not consistent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color ScannerOverall, I like the scanner very much, it's quick and quiet. The software is a bit cumbersome, and could use a little work. Scanning multiple documents is a pain when you want to name them differently for each document, or deposit them in different folders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Owner & Presdentthis product works very good. I wish that it could be networked, other wise it is a very good scanner if you are using if for film photography & scanning real prints into the computer to be fixed are to use it for a your film & slid photography. It is the best think out there for that. Epson make the best Professional equipment for photographers ! I have many different Professional Large Format Printers all made my Epson and they are the very best you can buy and are amazing just like this scanner is ! The best made by the best !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sharp and cleanI'm an artist and I want to see that a scanner can scan what I've put down on it. I'm thrilled to see that this scanner does do that and that it picks up all the colors and represents them more accurately than any scanner I've used yet. I also love that the software gives you professional options with ample file types which include tiff files. High resolution. I am publishing my second book using this scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scanner for the Price!I purchased for scanning of artwork, photographs, slides, transparencies and film negatives. It handles all with great results. The back lit area is considerably smaller than the full scanner bed (about 2 1/2" of the 8 1/2 full area) which limits the size of film or transparencies. It will scan four 35mm slides in one pass and at great resolution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scans multiple photos to different files.Love the features of this printer -- scanning multiple photos to separate files and scanning negatives -- but you can't scan and do anything else. If you try to edit photos already scanned while other photos are scanning, you have to turn the scanner off and back on to reset it. Makes editing take longer but for the scan feature to separate files is worth it. Quality is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ,V550I have only used the V550 for a month and a half, but in that short time I find that it does a very good job scanning my 35 mm slides. One area for improvement would be the plastic holder for the slides, as once your done scanning the slides have to be picked up from the glass which risks finger marks on the glass. A small lip on edge of the slide opening to prevent the slide from falling onto the glass might help if it did not interfere with the position of the slide for scanning. Overall I think it is better than my expensive Nikon scanner ( which has quit working) and the V550 is certainly more versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome ScannerI am in love with scanner. Very quick scans and easy to use and as a photographer that does do slideshows and photo retouching this scanner has been the perfect cost worthy scanner. Be prepared for any and every defect to show though when scanning, it is so fine that it finds stuff our eyes can not can not see and with my profession it is great, but to a normal user preserving photos you might be surprised...lol. Well worth the money, I should have bought this along time ago instead of dealing with my all-in-one printers for scanning. The scan time on this is remarkable and if you place multiple pictures or document on the bed of the scanner and give them space, the scanner will automatically separate them for you and technically you get 2 or more scans in one, so that is a HUGE plus when time is money for me on this scanner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V550I have some 220 slides from 1957 -68. I tried taking pictures of the slides, but the pink cast from degradation and different indoor exposures (outdoor were easier) made them very hard to adjust in Lightroom. I bought this scanner, snapped off the hinged holder for the 220 negs (it will snap back on) and put on three slides at a time, the center slide sitting on top of the first and last. I scanned at 48-bit and 3200 dpi. It takes my scanner about 9 min. to scan 3 slides. The color is very good as it comes from the scanner. I'm glad I bought it. I wish it was faster of course, but I'm saving time in the long run because there is much, much less editing in Lightroom and less frustration too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ScannerEasy set-up and use. I scanned slides, pictures and documents easily and quickly. I really like that I could scan more than one at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and ReliableI bought this scanner primarily for slides, to digitize them and preserve them. But its versatility is impressive. It handles documents, both one-page and multi-page, slides and movie film, and the recorded image is high resolution. I had some glitchy times with it when I first had it operating, until I removed the downloaded operating files and reloaded them, and it has been working perfectly and reliably ever since. It isn't super quick, but it does the job, and unless you have big numbers of originals to scan or you use this in an industrial application, this unit can really do the job. I'm a fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ProductI purchased the Epson V550 to replace my V500. The glass had gone milky on the inside and did not feel like opening up the v500. One of my kids will be using it for her daughters school work. The V550 software installed with no problems on my Windows 10 system with I7 processor.It does great scans! Just like the V500,just wonder what the difference is with the V600 the seem to be very similar except for the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I cannot plug it inThe power supply component has two closely spaced narrow prongs in a recessed cavity. How can I plug it in to a US (NYC) wall outlet?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job, Some IssuesI bought this in order to scan many, many slide transparencies we had amassed. I had a lot of trouble with “Scanner Not Found” or “Scanner Not Responding”, etc. Spent a couple hours on the phone with Support and things seem to be working now. Not crazy about the EPSON Scan software, seems to be clunky and very dated. The Scanner does scan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent photo quality.I purchased this for digitizing 900 slides. I had to uninstall my software for my Epson printer. Once completed I installed the software for the V550. Everything works as it should now including my printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V550I owned a Nikon Cool Scan V that I bought with some foto contest earnings several yrs ago, but having upgraded my computer, the drivers no longer worked. I researched flat bed scanners and thought I'd try the V550 (actually newer than the 600) I've scanned some 35mm slides with it and was surprised at the results. Im scanning them at 600 and they look fine. I need to scan some negatives as well but haven't got around to it yet. I'm not sure should I scan them at 300 or better? Any experience in the matter would be appreciated. For the money, this scanner is a deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 55 scans later:Bought V550 to replace an older Perfection whose performance was excellent. Looking for the same software, one that allowed me to scan as close to the original as needed. This allowed me to use Adobe Photoshop CS3 to work on negatives and slides, as well as photographs to finish my work. While this is a hobby, I want excellent results without having to by the ultra scanners that professionals would use. Have scanned photos from the 1930's with really fine results; same for the slides and film I've scanned. Great buy for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V550 ScannerI am trying to restore photos, have the v500 and bought the v550. The color from both scanners did not restore the original colors as they were when originally printed years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V550This is my first scanner and I bought it to digitalize the many family photos which I have possession of. I want to keep the originals and share the scanned copies with all of my relatives.I am pretty impressed with the quality of the scans so far - both negatives and photos. It is pretty easy to use once you learn all the ropes.Definitely recommend this model to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality flat bed scannerThis scanner replaces an older one by a different company. It is a much improved machine. I particularly appreciate that the top is held in place while I insert my slides/negatives. Only one issue but it might be applicable only to a few - I can't scan a collection of mounted 3-D slides in my collection - wish the company would make a frame for this task.
