Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dead in less an a year Enjoyed all the features of this scanner. Used them all. The negative scanning is a slow process - but fine light use. And that's what this scanner got - light use. And not dead, dead, dead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beware rebuilds I read great things about this scanner. I found the best price to come from Epson as a rebuild. I figured what I could I lose: I wasn't buying a used machine from someone who might have abused it; I was buying something the company itself was putting its reputation behind. Mistake. This machine must have slipped passed quality control the first time. When I got it (primarily to scan thousands of negatives I'd accumulated in the pre-digital age), it worked fine for about 20 negs, as advertised: fast, sharp, precise. Then it went haywire. For two strips of six negs each, it scanned only five. I tried several times. I went back to rescan the first negative strips that I had scanned successfully. Those scans also showed up incomplete. In addition, I wasn't getting accurate composition: parts of two adjacent negatives rather than one negative comprised each negative scan. I emailed support. It sent me back to the manual, which I had read and understood. I called support. The agent led me through a diagnostic routine, then determined there was a hardware problem and set up the process for me to get another machine. Disappointing, to be sure. But the response from Epson was good. I thought the agent with whom I was dealing said I'd be getting a new machine, which was an even better deal. As it turned out, it was going to be another rebuilt job. I said I wanted a new one; I wanted to return the first machine and get a credit. Epson said that, for a rebuild, it couldn't be done; all rebuild sales were final. So now I'm waiting for another rebuild -- Epson is paying for the reshipment of the defective machine back to the company -- and hoping for the best. I just hope I don't get stuck with another lemon and eventually winding up paying double what I expected for a good scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't Buy it! I bought this scanner a year ago. It worked great for a year. It now will not work with the same laptop that it has been working with for a year. I contacted Epson support and they stated that it will not work in a 3.0 USB port. Keep in mind that I have not changed my computer. I went through their steps of removing the software and reinstalling new software. I am running Windows 10, but have been since it first came out. Epson is not offering a solution I bought a USB hub that is 3.0, but states that it will power back to work with 2.0 or 1.1 USB devices and the scanner still does not Work! I am very disappointed as it is a great scanner when it works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy a v850 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for detailed artwork This scanner is great for scanning detailed scratchboard artwork. I can get great resolution and see individual scratches that are not visible with even a high quality camera. This is very useful for showing off detailed artwork to buyers. I think this should be high enough quality to produce a giclee print from. It's also a cinch to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get this one! I love this scanner. It is so much faster than my Epson Perfection 4490 photo that I had used for a decade. The software is excellent and, if you have other Epson products connected - like I do, it's nice to have one piece of software for all devices that scan. I really like the digital ice for photos. Many scanners have color restoration software but only for slides and negatives not photos, too. This scanner also comes with a nice long cord which is handy. The scan quality is excellent - which is really what counts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice So far I have only scanned about sixteen 35mm b&w negatives - but they look terrific scanned in at 3200 dpi. Very crisp and clear. The unit exceeds my expectations. These shots were originally taken nearly 50 years ago. Wow. How cool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 for slides I used this to scan the family collection of color slides - large and time consuming. I scanned at 2400 dpi so it takes several minutes to scan 4 slides at a time - but I could do other things on the computer while the scan was running. Waiting for 2400 dpi with digital ICE could get old real fast if you just sat there. It is important to keep the glass clear as digital ice did not remove larger lint and dust. The software was very straight forward and the supplied software could be used to largely restore the color of slides that were faded and had lost color balance or slides that were taken indoors under poor light. You get more flexability with this flat bed design than a simple film scanner - costs more but I felt the quality and versatility merited the cost. I did use it for a massive collection of family photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Digitized My Life My dad began photographing our family in 1946. I got this scanner to scan 35 mm slides as well as black and white negatives. This summer I scanned 2000 slides and 100 black and white negatives. I know there are slide only scanners but they would be useless when I was done scanning. This is a legitimate flat bed scanner and now functions in that fashion. I use it with a Macbook pro which made the buttons on the scanner non-functional but I controlled the process on screen. The ICE software useful,but not intuitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOT what I expected Scanner works fine but very slow. I needed something faster to scan old family pictures (late 1800's) I tried local scan services but they "lost" my pride and joy picture of my Great great grandfather, and his locomotive - he was a railroad engineer. I'm sure they made money on it somehow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the V600 Scanner I am an amateur photo enthusiast and have just run across boxes of old family slides from 3 generations back. After taking a limited number of them to a professional company to have them scanned to make print copies I realized how expensive this could become. So I researched slide scanners and decided to try the Epson V600. This is one of the best investments I could have made! It makes excellent scans and is very easy to use! I scan the slides, touch them up with my photo shop program, and print them for everyone in the family. Can't wait to try the film scanner option!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanner I purchased the V600 because I have been looking for a scanner that would enable me to scan old negatives from the family. The V600 does an excellent job on 35mm, slides, but especially medium sized negatives. To date I have scanned in about 600 medium size negatives of all sizes 2.5 x2.5, 2.5 x 3.5, 2.5 x 4.5 also smaller negatives 1.75 x 1.75 that can be placed inside the holder, lining them up straight was the only problem. Overall I say this is a great scanner, does the job well and I would recommend it to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from how do you work with negatives? The scanner was easy to install. However, after the installation there is no written information on how to use the scanner or using photo shop elements...I don't need a large manual, but a few pages to get you started is essential. I scanned negatives and got a copy of the scanning tool and the negatives...what's next? And, how do I work with transparencies? Learning photoshop by trial and error>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Software is not ready yet! This would be an excellent scanner except for the fact that the Digital ICE feature does not work in the current version of the PC application software. It works with after market VueScan, so the problem is not hardware or firmware -- it's the PC application software. If you select Digital ICE for film, it does not even attempt the extra (infrared) scan. Epson support was helpful, though, and authorized an RMA for my unit. I would consider buying this product in the future if they fix this flaw. For my intended use, Digital ICE was a mandatory feature, so it needs to go back for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from null I'm very pleased with the photo scanner we purchased. Having a hard time orientating pics and settings I want as there were no instructions in the box on operation. That is the only thing I would have preferred different. To have instructions in the box with the scanner. Great product and will recommend the product every time. Please send the instructions if possible. I know that I can go online and get them but the gesture would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good Four stars because I don't know it well enough and four stars because it is a tad bulky. Other than that, the quality of the output - the only thing that really matters - has been exceptional. I have had other slide scanners that were pitifully bad by comparison, So far I have scanned enough slides to know that the Perfection 600 is very good for my purposes, which involves copying a few thousand slides at my leisure. I have also tried scanning color negatives of long lost pictures and am very satisfied with its performance. I expected it to be relatively slow but figure that good things are definitely worth waiting for. The last slide scanner that I purchased a few weeks ago had to be sent back because the scans were bad beyond belief. Fortunately, the return policy worked very well and after more research, I settled on the Epson Perfection 600. I trust nothing will happen to make me change my mind but for now I am well satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 Perfection scanner Product does everything desired and for the purpose it was purchased. I have used a similar scanner at work that scans only prints but the one purchased for home use was the higher level V600 model that also scans negatives. The scanner worked perfectly straight out of the box which is not a usual occurrence with me and computer-related hardware. This was a concern of mine after reading some of the reviews and trouble that others were having with software issues. I've been able to scan 35mm color negatives taken over the past 30 years as well as larger format black & white negatives from my father's childhood 75 years ago. The scans have easily been able to be shared with family who have gotten a lot of enjoyment from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome I am absolutely amazed. I haven't even touched all the possibilities yet but just the slides that have been in a box for over 40 years are coming alive and rejuvenated by this amazing machine. Thank you Epson for having made it possible for me to have received such a wonderful Xmas gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I would highly recommend the V600 Epson photo scanner. It is quite easy to use for me as a beginner scanner. It can be quite addictive actually. I am scanning old family photos and it is great to see slides finally on a screen instead of just holding them up to the light to see them. I am now making CD's for other family members in case a fire was to destroy all the photos we have that are in one household. Now there will be copies dispersed to other areas for safe keeping. AAAA+++++!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with prints, lousy with negatives Very impressive with old photos in need of restoration, which is all I've used it for thus far. Color restoration feature is truly amazing as long as there is enough color hints in a faded print. Negatives are another story. Does not always capture all of the frames in a negative strip, and tends to cut off parts of frames at either end of the strip. The scanned color negatives did not flip the negative to color images, but rather to sepia images. Very disappointed in that feature. Haven't tried scanning slides yet, but I'm hoping the results are far better than with negative film strips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Espson Artisan 810 This all-in-one printer replaced my Epson RX500. I absolutely loved my RX500 & was very sad to see it die. I scan A lot of slides, negatives and photos. So it was necessary for my to find a printer that did this. To my disappointment, they don't make one that will do slides & negatives anymore. I did however purchase the Epson Perfection V600 Photo along with the Artisan 810. I LOVE both of them. I'm not thrilled to have 2 machines to do the job, but they are both wonderful machines! The Artisan is hooked up to my desktop computer and wireless for my laptop. I love that feature. The touchscreen is GREAT! So many things were different on this printer that I wasn't sure if I was going to like them. I spent all day playing with the printer. Pictures come out awesome, of course it's an Epson!!! There's a special place for the smaller photo paper, good feature. I fax often as well. So much simpler & faxes more than one page! I printed photos straight from my SD card...BEAUTIFUL! It has a USP port if you just wanted to plug in your camera. I don't know what else to say...Photo come out just as if they were professionally done. I am a person that analyzes every product, read all of the reviews. It takes weeks or sometimes months to do that, but am always satisfied with the results. I love Epsons products, and if your considering the Artisan 810..go for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a scanner that works with WIN 7 I have been very reluctant to purchase a new scanner after reading reviews that all seemed to say there were problems with WIN 7. I have 3 older scanners (about $1000 worth) that I could not get to work with WIN 7; so spending more money seemed fruitless! Well...I must say this scanner is great! Setup was very smooth. Took a while to load the software but it went without any problems. I also like the scanning software provided with the scanner....I like the ability to be able to adjust more settings rather than stuck with an "auto" mode. Got a great deal from Epson thru their clearance center on a "refurbished" unit. Has the same warranty as a new one. Has a great depth of field with "deeper/thicker" objects set on the scanner glass that I like. My 3 previous Epson Scanners worked great until WIN 7 came along which proves the scanners will outlast the system!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Results I needed to replace my Film Scanner when I got Windows 7 in my new Computer. I checked other Film Scanners Specifications but liked what the V600 had to offer. I was a little skeptical about using a Flat Bed Scanner for my Slides but after using it a few times I was really impressed with the Quality of the Scans. I can set the resolution for small files for Projection and higher resolution for Printing. My old Scanner created 19-21mb files which were OK for 11x14.With the V600 I have created 256mb to 512mb files of information that will make really good larger prints. I don't know whatever else I may scan but for what it does for Slide Scanning was well worth the nominal cost of the Unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cumbersome for old 120 negative scanning The V600 machine is a good overall scanner - it comes with slide and negative holders for 35mm and 120 film - I bought it for scanning old medium format negatives since our old Epson scanner would only do 35mm film and single 35mm slides. The standard settings for 120 film include 6x6 (cm), 6x7, 6x8 and 6x9. In professional mode, with old square 120 negatives (many from an old Hawkeye Kodak Brownie camera my parents owned) the preview would show one frame properly identified and all subsequent frames offset. Each subsequent frame had to be individually selected from the Normal preview. This is a tedious, time consuming process. The images are great though. It's a trip through time to see prints from negatives that are 50 to 65 years old that my parents and grand parents took. I have better results in general using the dust removal option over the ICE option. ICE can add odd things especially in shadowed areas. I also have an odd negative size, in strips, that is in between the 35mm and 120 film size for which no holder exists. I may have to buy a custom or resizeable negative holder for these. I'll submit more when I have more experience with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EPSON V600 PHOTO SCANNER LAST MARCH, (2010) WE PURCHASED THE V600. WE NEEDED A HIGH QUALITY SCANNER AS WE, MY WIFE AND I, ARE CREATING A PHOTO LIBRARY FOR BOTH SIDES OF OUR FAMILIES. SOME OF THE PHOTOS THAT WE HAVE SCANNED DATE BACK TO THE EARLY 1900'S. ONE OF THE MAIN FEATURES THAT WE LIKE ABOUT THE V600, AND TO US WAS NECESSARY, IS THAT IT WORKS WITH MANY SIZES OF NEGATIVES. THE V600 COMES WITH HOLDING TRAYS FOR 35MM SLIDES, OR 35MM FILM STRIPS, 2 1/4" SQUARE NEGATIVES OR STRIPS. PLUS IT WILL SCAN ANY PRINT OR DOCUMENT UP TO 8.5" X 11". TO THIS POINT, WE HAVE ENTERED APPROXIMATELY 4,500 SLIDES/NEGATIVES/PHOTOS INTO OUR LIBRARY USING THE V600. OUR COMPUTER SYSTEM IS A NEW (FEB. 2010) MAC, CURRENTLY RUNNING SNOW LEOPARD OS X 10.6.4. THE V600 SETUP AND STARTUP WAS ALMOST FLAWLESS. I DID NEED TO MAKE ONE CALL TO THE EPSON TECH SUPPORT TEAM. THEY HELPED ME AND I WAS UP AND RUNNING IN 15 MINUTES. SO FAR, THE V600 HAS NOT FALTERED AND WE STILL HAVE A FEW MORE THOUSAND PHOTOS TO GO BEFORE WE ARE DONE WITH THIS LARGE FAMILY PROJECT. THERE ARE MANY OTHER EXCELLENT FEATURES WITHIN THE V600, WHICH YOU CAN READ ABOUT IN THE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION. WE FEEL WE HAVE MADE A GOOD INVESTMENT WITH THIS PURCHASE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 This is a very good photo scanner for the advanced, intermediate or beginner. Easy and straightforeward to setup and use. For scanning 35mm slides or negatives to make prints, up to 8"x10"... excellent. For larger prints...very good. Digital Ice and dust removal work well. Scanning prints is easy and results are excellent. I haven't scanned medium format negs or slides, but my guess is that the results will be outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Scanner I bought this scanner specifically for slides and photos. Some of the photos are b&w and are almost a century old. The Epson Perfection V600 is extremely fast when copying photos ( e.g. 4x6 in less than a minute.) I am running an I-7 3930k Intel processor with 32gb ram.I use a new sweat sock to gently dust off the photo before I scan it. This saves a lot of problems and time when touching up the finished product. When scanning photos, I use full auto mode and then touch up any blemishes with adobe 64bit photoshop. When scanning slides, I use professional mode and check the unsharp mask, grain reduction, color restoration and backlight correction. I also set the target size to 4x6. When viewing the finished product on a 55in led tv, the picture takes up almost the whole screen.pros- I am impressed by the speed of the V600. A 4x6 photo scans in less than a minute. 4 slides scan in under 2 minutes. Unlike what other reviewers have said about the flimsy slide holder, (connected at one point), I think it's fine. After scanning 4 slides, by experience, you should lift off the holder and clean the glass. The slides have cardboard borders. You'd be surprised how much fuzz comes off them. cons- Like other reviewers, I did find debris stuck on the underside of the glass. In my case, the location was in two places at the top of the scanner. You can deal with that situation in three ways, scan the photo in the debris area and touch up the photo, scan in an area that doesn't have the debris (my choice), or simply return the scanner. Sometimes the photo result is not right, upside down or sideways. I double click to view the photo and rotate it to the proper perspective with the turn buttons on windows photo viewer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from null I am using this scanner to scan years of family slides and photos. I'm very please with the scanner's performance so far. The only problem I've had is that at times the color correction feature seems to fail. I first noticed when a scan of a slide was corrected and looked great, but had some lint. When I rescanned it, it had a strong yellow cast as did many slides after it. Then, it started correcting the color again. The scanner has done this a few times now. I don't know why. Other than that, I'm just really happy to have a way to preserve my family's memories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but... I like the scanner, it did a fine job with colors, and catching the text. It doesn't however scan to the edge. You have to move your object in 3 or 5mm. I would rather they have had some type of contact point there so I could align what I'm scanning at that location instead I have to use a ruler to place the photo that has an image to the edge. If I knew for sure other scanners didn't have the problem I might return it. So I may be going shopping...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, fast, not very good contrast I have two Epson scanners this Perfection V600, and the scanner built in my Artisan 810 multi-function printer. I use the scanners for scanning a number of paper items to sell on eBay. Most of what I scan are postcard size items. The Perfection is very well made and faster, but the LED technology does not give the contrast of the older technology in the Artisan 810. For my use I prefer the Artisan 810 scanner. The extra cost of the Perfection V600 is due to the new technology and a better made product. If faster scans and a little less contrast are ok for your use then I'd recommend the Perfection V600 otherwise I'd stick with the scanner on a multi-function printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanner - Short Life Works great for normal use. Good B&W and color document scanning. However, only lasted 23 months. I would have expected more life for personal use. Buy one, but don't expect it to last. Local repair shops say they can't get parts or repair documentation. Pricey for a boat anchor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered to rejuvenate negs After only a week of use, it's a bit soon toa rate the V600 at 5 STARS, but, I'll gamble that the features I haven't yet tested are as good as those that I've used this week. If the V600 works as well as my 12 year old "Brand X", which is still operating beautifully on my other computer, I will be very happy. The TRUE reason that I bought the V600 is to convert hundreds of color and black & white negatives up to 65 years old, as well as restore a few fading color prints from the early 1950s. Some of my 60+ year old negatives had never been printed, so it was a hoot to hit "preview" and see them appear in their original glory. Great job, Epson. I have already recommended this unit to my oldest son, while another son has purchased the Epson V330 and likes it, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine! I bought this inexpensive machine yesterday for what I thought would be a tedious. lengthy bout of document scanning (a great aunt's record of publishers she had sent manuscripts to, contained in an old hundred-plus-page Composition Book). I finished it in less than a couple of hours. The scanner is fast, easy to set up and use and provides clear and sharp files, all unlike the old, slow Palo Alto, California company's 5370C scanner (which that company no longer supports - there is no driver for any operating system later than XP). My next project is to finish scanning old negatives my father had taken in the nineteen-teens, twenties, thirties and later so that I can preserve them and distribute CDs/DVDs to his side of the family. The old scanner, which I bought because it had a light source with which to scan negatives, took me weeks to scan about a third of the negatives with mixed results. The rest of THAT job should be a breeze!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scanner I gave 5 stars, but should be 4 1/2. This is an excellent scanner with very good controls and color correction. Two minor things to improve. The negative carrier clip in is flimsy. I haven't had any problem with them and they continue to work well. My concern is they will wear out. Also in the professional mode, if you crop an image it will automatically correct the color. Too many times it is a few shades off from original. For reference I was a professional photographer and did my own color darkroom printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality scans Since I wasn't able to get quality scans from friends or places to pay for scans, I decided to buy my own. I'm glad I chose the V600. I have scanned and printed from my 35mm negatives and the results were great. The prints from those scans were better that prints made directly from the negative by my photo lab. I do think that the plastic negative holder could be a little more substantial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Scanner This scanner produces excellent results for copying documents, photographs, and film from 35 mm to medium format. Operating modes range from the quick and simple fully Automatic to Professional mode allowing a wide range of controls over the final results. I am presently scanning my large collection of Hasselblad transparencies dating from 1974. I control the scanner through Photoshop CS. This scanner, in the professional mode, performs excellently and the resulting digital images require little or no manipulation in Photoshop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value, Works with Lion (Slight glitches still I have had the V600 for one day now and have scanned a couple hundred medium format negatives directly into iPhoto, successfully. I use with a MacBook Pro on OSX 10.7.2 (Lion). Once I figured out that I needed to access the scanner through the System Preferences, I was OK. There is a slight glitch in that every once in a while either the scanner is not available or it doesn't give me the opportunity to select transparency scanning. When this happens I must restart my computer. This has happened about 5 times for the hundreds of scans, so it isn't too bad, but I'd like to see that little problem go away in future driver updates. Overall I am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 I had an old scanjet but I aged just waiting for the lamp to warm up. This Epson has great scanning quality, speed and utillity. The front buttons actually work for me in Windows 7. The lid has two "lock positions" that are great as well as the ability to scan a book with the whole lid higher and parallel with the glass. The only problem is that nothing explained the "locks" and I was afraid to force it past one of the lock positions before I did it once with no ill effects. Should have been noted in the instructions that it would not hurt the lid and there were no "unlock" buttons. I bought two additional scanner programs that had great reviews in addition to the included Epson program. Both have their own benefits, and with the low cost of the V600, they were affordable. One of the other programs lets me use my old scanet on windows 7, and the other gives more control. The Epson program does the best job of automatically and accurately finding slide frames. Since I ordered the scanner on line(no local stores had one) I bought an additional protection plan just in case! So far (two weeks) the scanner is great. Only problem I have found is that with some software if you act too quickly to do something while an operation is still ongoing it locks up and must be powered off and back on. Not a big problem. I do wish that the V700 had the LED feature since it would have been nicer to be able scan multiple (24) slides than the 4 slides per scan of the V600. Since I primarily wanted a general purpose scanner for documents and photos as well as a good slide scanner, I bought the V600. I still have to figure out how to calibrate from scan thru print (on my epson 2200 printer). I remember a feature on the old scanjet that let you print a target file, scan it and then do a calibration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 Perfection It appears that Epson knew what they accomplished when they named this line "Perfection". I haven't used all the features yet, however, the photo restoration capabilities are fantastic. A bit on the bulky side but unless your space is limited to a small closet, this shouldn't be an issue. For me, the most difficult part of this was to find one. Many of the places I shopped were sold out. A good indication that the word on this unit has spread. Moderately priced considering the V600's capabilities. A great buy. Thanks Epson

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection v600 works This scanner replaced a much older Epson, the main reason was that the older programming would not work well with Win Office 2007. It is mainly used by my father,(79yrs young) to send attachments with his emails to all the grand-kids. The one button scan to email really makes it easy for him to do so. I use it for scanning in old 35mm negatives the family shot years ago. It's a really nice scanner that is versatile enough to fit most needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent with flaws the V600 is a versatile scanner that produces remarkably good scans of photographic material right out of the box. The scans are a little soft but the included sharpening feature compensates. The software controls of color temperature, hue etc are adequate but far from the state of the art. The V600 also produces very good scans of 35 mm slides and negatives. The results are not quite as good as a dedicated scanner but are very close. The color adjustments software problems are more obvious with transparencies than pictures. The transparency holders are awful. They consist of 2 pieces that are not hinged. Unless your negatives lie limply in place, getting them into the holder without a wrestling match is awkward. In addition the holders really do not hold negatives flat. The scanner does a pretty good job of compensating but it isn't the best solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner It would be nice if a detail manual of the scanner and software came with the equipment. The software version is so simple, it is insulting. The "slide" holders does not fit 35mm slides. Photoshop software is the same way. If you are like me, and do not have any exerience with scanners or photoshop software. Keep on looking for something you can use when you drop the money, and open the box. This is not it. The scans are great. But you can not pick what folder to place your scan in. If you need to learn how to use this, find something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 Photo Scanner It's the perfect instrument for someone like me who start making a family album of photos. But there is something missing as template for old negatives which is smaller or bigger than the templates supplied with the V600. But anyway, I consider it like a very good instrument especially when you include Adobe Photoshop. I already have Corel Paint Shop Pro X3 but it's a very good complement. Thank to Epson for the good service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good scanner - but Film and slide holders are bit flimsey in addition to not making very good scans. The holders position the film just high enough off the scan surface that the scan is a bit fussy. Any curl (and what piece of old film does not have some), will vary in sharpness. Not sold on the film/slide ability of tis scanner. On the other hand, photo scans and other flat materials are spot on. The ICE technology is slooooow but good. I have about 75 years of family photos to preserve and this scanner seems to be up to the task. Just need to decide which are worth the extra time to use ICE and which are just as easily corrected in CS6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality scans, software so so The scans of slides and photos I am getting from this scanner are very good, but you have to work for them. The buttons and features are what I need and I like having dedicated PDF button. I haven't scanned multiple page documents with the DF feature yet, so I can't say how well it works. I have used Photoshop Elements for quite a while and it works well with the scanner, but the other scanner software supplied with the scanner isn't all that friendly. I have found that if I do not check file location each time I scan the files may end up in a file other than the one would like them to default to. Also, the software will not let you change the default scan name before you scan. Another thing is that this software is quirky and when it has a problem, which seems to happen rather frequently, I have to reboot the computer. Add this to the overall speed of the scanner at high resolutions and scanning a batch of slides or photos becomes a time consuming feat. If you use the ICE software it become glacial. The ICE software wells pretty well to correct photos, but it does slow down the scan considerably. It would be nice if the scanner was faster. Overall looking at the market for scanners in this price range I think this is about as good as it gets. I think it is a good scanner limited by the Epson software. Hoefully Epson will put out some updates to make their interface software more flexible and dependible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding scanner I purchased this scanner a week ago primarily to scan the thousands of 35mm slides that I have accumulated over the last 45 years. The Epson Perfection V600 has met all of my expectations from when I opened the box, installed the software and driver, scanned my first photo and began scanning my slides. The installation was totally problem free and startup was a breeze. The quality of the few photos that I have scanned was fabulous. The quality of the slides that I have scanned from the seventies and eighties was also great. I had a number of "special" slides from the sixties that also scanned extremely well. It has been quite enjoyable to look at our boys as they grew up. I would certainly recommend this scanner to anyone who desires very good quality of their photos! Some people have complained about the slide holder; I just taped it down to the flat surface and it is no problem at all. I have been a user of Photoshop Elements for 5 years, so using it to touch up the scanned slides was a sinch. The V600 is a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner Bought the V600 to scan a bunch of old pictures, slides and negatives. i'm using this with an iMac. Set up was very easy, just went to the Epson web site to download the Mac driver, loaded it up, plugged in, went to applications folder, clicked on the Epson scan icon and i was in business. There are different modes within the Epson scan config pop up but i mainly used full auto mode for now. i scanned negatives and 35mm slides using the adapters that were included, checked the box for film vs photo in the config file and clicked scan. done. pretty good looking pictures from both the slides/negatives. i'm very pleased. i haven't tried using a third party scanning software as of yet but if that is better that using what i have now, i'll be happier yet. this was well worth the purchase if you are an amateur to scanning (i am), and this was very easy to set up with great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent scanner This is a great scanner, with excellent software. I'm an artist, so detail and color are important. I've used this scanner with photographic prints, negatives, and slides and had excellent results that need little editing. My earlier scanners (not Epson) had been disappointing with slides and negatives -- muddy color and detail. This scanner does a much better job. I also paint watercolors, which I scan. The scanner does a good job with these, too, though the color needs more adjustment. I found that I had to scan them as documents rather than photos (how I had scanned them before). I have also used the OCR, ABBYY FineReader, and found it excellent in producing editable text. Altogether, this is a terrific scanner. My only wish is that I could afford a larger one!

Instructions for this were rather vague, however, and I am old enough to still want a hardcopy manual, making the lack of even a pdf version something of a put-off. Yes, online manual did help. Side issue, when I went to register the product online, it would not allow me to enter 2016 as the year of purchase. (Also note: my failure to recommend this to a friend is simple due to the fact that I don't go around making blanket recommendations of things to people--it seems to work for me; I can't say for someone else.)

Very pleased with the results and liked the fact I could adjust contrast, brightness & color saturation, which I did on 99.9 % of the frames. I would highly recommend this scanner to anyone.+

Having difficulty downloading the right software and drivers. Most features work but I get an on screen notice saying "drivers not installed" when I try to use the Smart Panel feature. Nothing on-line seems to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from null The scans of 35 mm slides are spectacular, ONCE I downloaded several drivers and utilities. I would think that you would keep the units that are being shipped out in 2015 a little more up to date than having to go back to 2013 to download essential parts for the scanner. Very frustrating. That being said, the scanner is top notch and I'm happy with my purchase. If the need arises I will purchase Epson products again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast scanner, great for old and new style negatives. This is naturally much faster than my old Epson 3590. I upgraded to this scanner just so I could scan my old 1940-1970 type negatives. It has not been a disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3-½ Years Later I definitely like it. It’s reliable. Warm-up time is short. Colors come out well. Can scan 4 or more photos and each is automatically separated into its own file. Automatically straightens each image (well, most of them) when the master is put in at an angle. Switching to or from the mode for scanning slides is not too difficult, and the scanning results are very good. Speed for up to 300 dpi is acceptable. What I don’t care for is that it doesn’t scan all the way to the edges of the bed, and it doesn’t always detect the edge of a piece of paper correctly; it's slow in scanning with higher resolutions (but does a very good job); if you have to scan a large image in two parts, the greyshades in the two parts don’t always match where the two parts overlap; I’m not impressed with the ICE dust removal capability (perhaps I don’t know how to use ICE.); and the cover is hinged on the short dimension, so you can only lift it in an area with lots of vertical clearance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scanner! Awesome scanner! I bought it primarily for converting slides and negatives and it certainly does the job. Straight out of the box, plug and play, I was looking at forty year old slides within minutes. The four-slide carries cuts down scanning time; same with the two-strip negative carrier. This is a fantastic unit at a competitive price. Buy one, you'll love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner I have had this scanner for 11 months and am getting pretty efficient digital conversion. I have done over 17,00 photos so far, mostly 35 mm slides but some photos. In most cases where I have photos and the original negative it is easier to use the photo than the negative for a couple reasons but primarily a "curling" problem with negatives but partially because many of my negatives are not in strips of 4. I give the unit a 4 because the original unit developed a focus issue. Epson replaced the unit but forgot the FedEx return shipping tag but they did get it squared away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 This scanner worked for my project. I have a Windows 7 system. The directions are poor and lack good information. You will have to just plug it in and figure it out for yourself, for the most part.

Required long software downloads, searching for updated drivers on the Epson web site, and multiple failed attempts to scan before I "got it." (The hard-wiring was easy.) 2. Long scan time. I bought this to digitize 35 mm operative photos; I have hundreds to scan, but since it takes almost 4 minutes to scan 4 slides, I will need to set aside a lot of time for this task! 3..Although Photoshop Elements is included, it was not possible for me to scan directly to that application, despite explicit instructions and directions to the contrary. Pro's: 1. The scanned images are gorgeous, and publication-worthy 2. Photoshop Elements is included! For one or two slides at a time, this scanner would be terrific. The scan quality is excellent and document copies were superb. It will be too slow for the work I need to do --

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality & Features As with the 2 Epson printers I now own, the quality and features have met or exceeded my expectations. My only problem with Epson is that I want a new Photo printer, the Sure Color P800. Thank you Epson. The set up with the V600 was easy and after loading the software I was up and running quickly. I like the lift top seals nicely to keep the dust out. When you raise the lid to scan, the lid clicks and stays open so you have both hands to place your negatives or prints squarely on the glass. This is an excellent & thoughtful feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scanner for Photos I recently decided to find a scanner for my use in digitizing all my family photos that I've acquired over the years. I wanted one that would produce top quality images and also allow for some basic editing. After doing my research, I settled upon the Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner as the best combination of price, quality, and functionality. So far I have digitized about 150 photos and done some touch-ups of about 50 of them, and I am very pleased with the results. The learning curve is pretty short; the scanner is very user-friendly, and the results are excellent. It fits my needs perfectly. I have not come across any negatives with this scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transferring slides to digital format -crazy easy! My mother has decades of slides that require full set up of an ancient projector and screen to view. This scanner has made it incredibly easy to transfer the slides to a digital format, and therefore much easier to view and share with other family members. This photo scanner is ridiculously easy to use - and I am NOT a computer person whatsoever. It has the capability to transfer 4 slides at a time; negatives from developed film; and, of course, photos of all sizes. As our parents get older, my husband and I plan on scanning their old photos so that everyone in the family can enjoy the family history. Highly recommend this scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seamless with PC - No so with MAC This is a great scanner for the price and I would give it 5 Stars if not for the trouble I had getting it to work on my iMAC. The install from the disc provided with the scanner was super easy, however, the scanner just sat there afterwards and did nothing. After reading several blogs etc, I determined that the drivers on my disc were likely outdated so I had to find the "Uninstall" utility on the Epson website, uninstall the Epson software I had just installed, download the new drivers from Epson and reinstall. You would think Epson could have warned that this might be a problem or simply have you go to the website to download the drivers instead of supplying a disc that doesn't work on all Operation Systems. On my PC it was a seamless install as the operating system I have on it is older. As far as operation this scanner is the best I have ever used. Software is easy to use, it is fast, it will scan several photos at once giving each it's own individual file number, etc. Everything works better than advertised! If you are looking for a great scanner at a great price, this is a winner!

I bought it at Apple on line, delivered today, with my expectation that it would make my family history work faster and easier than the equipment I have now. It is the same kind of issue the old Windows products had before Steve Jobs made computer life a joy. It is just too much hassle for the money. Very poorly documented and the won't even allow the Guide Book to be downloaded or burnt to a DVD to examine more closely. I'd say it was my computer's fault but I have old DOS computers stashed in our hone commuter "grave yard."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 Photo Scanner I purchased this scanner based on reviews pertaining to scanning B&W negatives into Lightroom and Photoshop. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the scanner does an excellent job of scanning negatives which negates the need of putting in a Dark Room to create prints. I have recently gotten back into taking B&W photos and developing the film myself. Although it is not designed to scan 4x5 negatives with a little adjustment it does a great job of scanning and I then stitch the files together in Photoshop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feature rich I bought this a few weeks ago and have been very happy with its performance and features.

Highly recommend this scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from null The Epson V600 is doing a great job on my colour slides that I took sixty years ago. It was a shame that it came without any soft ware. I was lucky that my son in-law had the same scanner and was able to help me. The Epson V600 is a fantastic scanner,.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, light and ready to use. This scanners has the perfect size for a small desk hile having great features for the photography enthusiast. The fact that you can scan 35 mm and Medium Format film makes this scanner a great purchase for the money. Software is pretty easy to learn and use. Great for scanning prints for archiving in digital form.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even I can use it... I have an aversion to reading instruction manuals, but with this scanner I'm in luck. It is very intuitive in operation. So far I have scanned old 4x6 prints, many of them faded from 40 years ago, and the results are great. I have also scanned 35mm slides with equally good results. 6x6 negatives and some color negatives are next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Bit Better Than a Basic Photo Scanner I bought this photo scanner to digitize 35mm slides going back to the 1960s. There is a definite learning curve with the V600...and the directions provided are a bit hard to decipher. Nonetheless, was pleased with the quality of the images that the scanner produces. I figure that the cycle time for copying four 35mm images is about six minutes from the time one set of slides is installed and the next set of four is ready to be copied. I would say that is an acceptable production rate but I would be happier if the process was faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great - until it doesn't. I bought my first V600 about two and a half years ago. I was very, very satisfied until a few weeks ago when I started having problems. Sometimes it would scan negatives and slides and sometimes it wouldn't. (Scans of paper photographic images always worked perfectly.) After fighting with it for at least a couple months, I was told by my computer guy that there was a problem with the rear projection bulb -- or something like that -- but that it was hopeless to repair it because it was out of warranty. To cut a long story short, I opted to buy a second one. Now I'm waiting to see if this one does the same the same...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Scanner I bought this scanner a few months ago but wanted to wait until I had a chance to use it on different types of images before commenting. I love this scanner! I have been waiting for something like this to hit the market for some time. I have scanned hundreds of negatives and many slides. I am even considering rescanning the old photographs I have already scanned using my printer. That is how good this scanner works for me. In my opinion there is no comparison to anything I have done from home. This scanner has paid for itself - just with the negatives - several times over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Negatives Very Blurry with Horrible Contrast It is not the source- my negatives are perfectly clean, crisp and colored. The film is flat. It is not damaged in any way. When viewed with a backlight, the negatives are fantastic. It is not my computer. My screen produces HD images from all types of sources available online. The colors are true. It is not the software- I've tried almost every combination of choices using the professional scan software option to capture an image. ALL are blurry and incapable of distinguishing well defined areas of the photo where there happens to be a high contrast. The imperfections are NOT remedied with post-scan processing software. The software masks them slightly. The scanner simply cannot find the correct focal point for the image. It's just like a camera lens. Have you ever tried to photograph a flower up close and not adjusted the macro settings? The camera cannot produce the image without blurring- it cannot focus because it is too close. The same issue appears to be occurring with this scanner, but unfortunately, I do not have a macro setting to adjust. I surmise the backlight is too dim as well. I cannot confirm because it shuts down when the scanner lid is slightly opened. Only buy his scanner if you want quick images to post on facebook. This is not for a person attempting to capture their negatives digitally in a quality manner for databasing of your family moments. It will give you an image. It will not look like the picture you captured on film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs a manual! This product does not come with any manual. By trial and error I think I can make it do what I bought it for, but that took a lot of trial and error, and I have no information about other things it might be able to do. For example, there is no explanation of the function of the four button on the front of the unit. There is no need for a 100-page manual, but a straight forward 10-page manual would greatly enhance the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great scanner for my old negatives I bought it to scan my old 35mm negatives. The scans are pretty good, although I do have to change the colors for many of the scans and since many of the negatives are somewhat old, I have to remove scratches in the photoshop. The software with the scanner is not that great. Also, I like the professional setting where you can chose the resolution and which photo to scan. You can put multiple 35mm negatives in the provided utility and the scanner does a pretty good job in separating each individual photo. Overall, does a pretty good job. I would recommend to anyone who is scanning the old negatives for personal/home use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As a photo/film scan it's great vs document scanner... I bought the V600 start digital conversion and restoration project of Family photos and film. I have not started this project in earnest. The scanning app that I am using is Nuance Paperport 14. Before I start with photos and film I wanted to make sure to get accustomed to using it as a document scanner first. Note: I also have a HP Photosmart multi-use printer, scanner, copier. Getting back to the V600, the document scanning (Office Mode) is somewhat cumbersome. I didn't know I first needed to close out Preview (if you use Preview) first which erases preview image. It does not erase "the image", you then Scan. This just does not seem intuitive. HP allows to see a preview and while on the same window you select scan and you're done! In addition, once you Scan you need to close the Scan window and you'll see your scanned image populate the Paperport 14 desktop. It does not automatically close and populate when the scan completes. I believe this is part of the learning curve and the benefits of the V600 for my photo/film project will override the shortcomings as a document scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner Had this one for a couple of years. At some point in the software upgrade process, certain options became non-functional, such as all the buttons on the front of the unit. Those buttons do absolutely nothing at this point. Additionally, the 'scan to pdf' option uses the barest of options, meaning that if you want to scan 10 pages, you end up with 10 different pdf files. While all this worked when I originally bought the unit, they rapidly failed within the year. Does do reasonable quality document scans if you launch the app in it's most basic form.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is REALLY Perfection My main reason for buying the V600 was to digitally archive our slides and photos from the late 1960's thru the 1990's. The V600 and the included software are just what the doctor ordered for this task. Simple but powerful, some of the slides and photos actually look better once scanned into my computer than the originals. I would highly recommend this scanner to anyone needing to digitize their photo and/or slide memories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanner This machine is just perfect. I had the scanner up and running in just a few minutes. Everything is very intuitive, you almost don't need a manual, although it is good to have for some of the finer details. Some reviews I read before buying the scanner said that they had trouble setting it up, but I am 75 and had no trouble so maybe these people have some other problem with Epson. If there was a software problem everybody would have the same problem. They may have been trying to install it on a computer with too little disk space or too little RAMM. When you download the software it automatically checks for the latest driver, but Just in case, I went to Epson's web site, found the scanner and it recommended a special Download for Microsoft. I downloaded that too. You can do just about everything in "Home Mode". If you need finer adjustments, "Professional Mode" takes care of them quite easily. I like the fact that you can scan multiple prints at the same time and they come out as individual scans, just leave about a quarter inch between them. Slides and negs. are just as easy. The only negative is the film/slide holder is very flimsy and I doubt it will hold up over prolonged use, but I guess replacements are available. Digital Ice works fine on color, almost no degradation in sharpness...too bad it dosen't work in B&W. The copy mode is great. Just have your printer tuned on, press "copy" button on front of machine, get preview, check what type of copy you want, press scan and and your printer will print out a perfect copy...almost easier than a dedicated copy machine. I have an Epson printer so maybe that's why it was so flawless, but it should work on other printers just as well. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is the OCR program. The ABBYY FineReader 9.0 Sprint is straight out of the 90,s. It is a very limited program with almost no formatting tools In 1 mode they want you so sign up for a subscription to do that function and they strongly suggest you upgrade to their professional mode for almost 3/4 the price of the scanner itself. The best thing to do is to scan and convert the text into Microsoft Word, copy and past it into a page layout program or OpenOffice and format it there. But watch out, it shows it is scanning, but watch the scan button, if it changes press save or else it will keep scanning multiple copies. Epson should find a different OCR program so they don't ruin a good reputation for a Great scanner.

I checked the reviews of current Epson scanners and based on those reviews, I purchased the Perfection V600 Photo scanner. I expected it to scan better than my 3170 but it does not based on my comparison of scans of 10 different pictures using the same settings on both. The only feature that I like about the V600 is that I only have to raise the cover half way up. On the 3170, it had to be raised a full 90 degrees. I had higher hopes for the V600.

The set up directions could have be clearer but You Tube came to the rescue !Once set up scanning of both slides and negatives was easy and the results optically very good.

One feature I really like is that there is no waiting for the scanner to warm up. It is ready to go as soon as the item being scanned is on the scanner.

I have not scanned slides or negatives yet. The scanning process allows for many levels of customization and is executed through an easy to navigate dialogue box. There is a copy of Adobe Photo Elements 9 included. The scanner's software includes a OCR software, ABBY V. 6 Sprint, that allows you to convert scanned documents into editable Word or Excel documents. There is a "Copy" function that allows you to copy a document that prints through your printer. The "Scan to Email" blows, you can only scan to MS Outlook. At the highest resolution, 1200dpi, the scan takes much longer than at say 300dpi, but, that is to be expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this scanner Did past scanning with my HP printer/scanner---a cumbersome, lengthy, and less than adequate procedure. Scans with HP were NOT true to color and it took forever. The Epsom machine scans quickly, with good results. Since I am still learning, what I would like to be able to do is edit a little bit more before scanning---I am either not smart enough to do that yet, or that is beyond it's limitations. Would definitely recommend this unit to an "amateur" scanner.

I talked to customer support before unpacking it. Went to the Epson support website as instructed... followed the start-up instructions that came in the box, and the installation program on the website.... voila! It took less than 10 minutes and I was scanning beautiful photos! Thanks Rose...I am happy.

Reinstalled software, no change. Looked for update driver and the newest is 2013 copy....Seriously! They must want you to purchase a current 3rd party driver?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanner for the price I bought this scanner about 2 years ago and have used it heavily doing over 8,000 film scans (mostly 35mm negatives). For the price, I was extremely pleased with this product - I did need to get it replaced at almost a year, but it was under warranty (it was getting a green/red line down each scan). The refurbished one they sent me worked great for about a year and has now started to act up a little. I'm guessing I've probably have used this product more than most people would and not overly upset on this at the price point. Hence the 4 versus 5 stars. The first thing to learn is to REMOVE the panel on the top cover (it slides off) if you want to scan negatives - the instructions were not very clear on this, but I quickly figured this out. The ICE for scratch and dust works well - I still spray my film with compressed air before putting it on the flatbed. The other thing I wish they would have included in the instructions were looking for "Newton Rings" that might show up on some of the scans. At first I thought they were finger prints, but later researched it and it has something to do with the curve of some of the negatives. There are some ways to correct this - the easiest way that I found worked ok was putting the negatives in upside down in the holder (then inverting the picture using the S/W).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and fast Purchased this scanner based on reviews and I have been very pleased. Mostly I need to copy slides, and the V600 will do 4 of them at a time, but it creates a separate record for each one. Color quality is excellent and I have not needed to clean them up. I have also scanned some photos, both color and black & white. Both have scanned well, though I was a little surprised that the black & white photos copied very well in the Home mode, using the "greyscale" setting, instead of the "black & white" setting. Some photos needed adjustment, and the Home mode worked very nicely. Also, some of the old color photos needed correction and cropping, but the "Professional" mode gave me choices that cleaned and improved the photos very well. I can fill the scanning surface with several photos, keeping a space between them, and once again, each photo creates a separate file, even though several are on the scanner surface at the same time. This makes the scanning go quickly. I highly recommend the V600 if you want excellent results and the ability to correct flaws on your photos. I have not yet used the scanner for negatives, but expect to see excellent results, based on the quality I've seen so far.

Sent replacement, again DOA. Seems Epson never wrote a proper driver for 64 bit Windows 7 systems so their software would not allow the hardware to connect. I haven't checked in the past six months to see if Epson has joined the year 2013 and updated their driver offerings. Looks like a nice product so it's too bad about the drivers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I do love the results of this scanner. The only problem I have found and it's probably me, is that I cannot get it to go directly from my Corel program, I have to use its own path and then export it to Corel. I keep thinking there is a way, and I probably will eventually find it. The colors are amazing in the finished scan and the clarity is perfect. I also have an Epson printer and both my printer and the scanner have impressed me greatly. I do pressed flower art and people are always feeling the paper to see if the flowers are real.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Stuff I bought this scanner with the intention of scanning a lot of old 120 slides. I am not disappointed in the least. I do have one quibble and that is I cannot stand the Epson software. The forced use of a serial number at the end of the file name on a flat-bed scanner hampers a smooth workflow. It means having to edit the file name after the scan is complete, making a 2-step process out of what should be a single step.

Now just an hour or two into it I have successfully scanned photographs, slides, negatives and some philatelic items. Not only was it easy, it gave me results that were beyond my expectations. The only concern I have are the film holders. They seem to be a little on the cheap side. If there are any upgrades to these, it would be a major improvement. This product is everything I could hope for and is a real bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Scanner It does it all and it does a great job. Two very minor improvements. It would be nice to be able to set a new "default" on where to save files (you currently have to change between each pdf). The second improvement needed is that if you do not close the cover slowly on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper, the paper will sometimes float on the glass and not be aligned (square) when scanned. Otherwise, love it and already have recommended to several people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 review I ordered the EPSON V600 scanner to improve my capability to scan slides, negatives and 35mm/medium-format film images at higher resolution and utilize the benefits of Digital ICE Technology software. Since purchasing and setting up this scanner I have used it extensively in all modes and it has consistently, reliably and flawlessly produced results I have been able to edit and save with a lot less effort than with older scanning equipment. Also of note is the easy set-up routine and a lot less time sitting idle with the nearly instantaneous operation of the unit without a warmup period making the entire process of loading, previewing, editing and scanning a real pleasure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color "okay", capture entire original, not OK When I put any photo up against the inner plastic frame and scan as suggested, as others have said it definitely does cut off a few pixels lengthwise on those two sides. Might not matter so much for someone who doesn't have 100+ y/o photos. Someone (somewhere) suggested using thick painter's tape to keep the photos from butting up too closely to the edges. Tedious, however it's handled. Color repro (with no retouching) is "okay", but not 100% accurate. Also, better software should include the option how to name/rename the file before/during scanning; and due to the numerous "wrong" scannings (and other issues) would be very helpful to know how the last file was named, also.

A full format 6x6 scan will give you a 50MP scan that will have a great resolution. The software is easy to use so I am now using this scanner as my main tool and only used the dedicated 35mm scanner for the huge resolution scans that I need once in a while. Overall a great product. I also like the digital ICE functionality, however be prepared that it will double your scan time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner I appreciate my new photo scanner. I have done well with the automated processes. I have successfully scanned family photos from the 1880's and negatives from as early as 1919. I have not used the enhanced capabilities yet, but I am hopeful that I will be able to save photos and negatives that are more damaged and require better tool than the automated processes provide. I have used the software that was provided, as well as, "Silverfast 8" software that I have also purchased based on other reviews about this scanner. Sometimes the "organic" software works best and sometimes "Silverfast 8" works best depending on the object being scanned. Because of my success, I would recommend this photo scanner to those wanting to scan old photos and negatives using the automated features. After more experience, I expect to be able to give this product a 5 star rating base on the cost of the scanner and a good quality scan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant photo scanner I purchased this Epson 600 to scan many older photos that were taken before digital. Many are starting to fade and I wanted to preserve them for future generations. Many of the photos were scanned on auto and they turned out very good. Only two had to be redone manually to capture them correctly. The speed is moderate and it is several times faster than my old one. You can do several photos at once and it will single out each one as long as you leave a space between each. This has been a good addition for me. I can't comment on a film or slide scan as I haven't had a chance to test it yet.

Combined with ease of use for both mac and pc machines, the Epson V600 is a workhorse. As a working musician, the V600 allows me to send excellent copies of my work to clients. Bravo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from medium format negative I researched all the different models in this price range and am very please with the results. I purchased the V600 for the soul purpose of scanning very old black and white negative in medium format. I've also played around with the positive negative (slides) and that was outstanding. Highly recommend this scanner. Easy to setup and use. Didn't even have to read the user's guide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I expect with Epson We use this scanner to scan photographs and film and slides. It is fast. It gives great looking results. We also use Perfection V700s and this scanner is just as fast as the v700. It isn't quite as capable as the 700 (batch only 4 slides as opposed to 12, etc) but we knew that buying them. The scanner does not disappoint. We also have some v500s and it basically is the same as a v500 but a lot faster and a tad bit quieter. Not that any of them seem to be loud. Epson quality, speed and performance are terrific--its why we have chosen them over all other scanners these days. But, one thing we have noticed about all epsons is that they could improve performance more by changing or giving the user the opportunity to choose to change how batching is done. Right now you select multimple masks and the scanner sweeps the glass multiple times to scan the multiple images. A faster way would be to sweep the glass once and separate the images based on the user given masks after the scan. In fact an"old" scanner we have that does this is a slow scanner, but almost matches the speed of our v700 when configuring batch scans this way. Bottom line is that the v600 is fantastic! Its virtually as fast as the v700, has almost as many features and capabilities and cost a lot less than the v700 and only slightly more $ than the v500. It is simple and efficient to use. Great for a home user or in the work place really. It looks nice. Seems to be built with quality and it even sounds nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional quality made simple This scanner makes it so easy to scan a document and save it as a PDF file in two simple steps. I was also amazed on how simple it was to scan negatives and electronically preserve treasured memories. If it's simplicity and quality that you are seeking, then this scanner is the one. I am also using this scanner on Windows and Mac OSX. Scanner works good on either system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good News & Bad News While the results are overall better than my previous scanner, getting there is WAY less than half the fun. The film and slide holders are much more difficult to position properly, the on/off switch very inconveniently located more than halfway back on one side, and the software so counter-intuitive that I have not been able to preserve the scan settings from one group of four slides to the next four, even within the same session. I would recommend the V600 only to professionals who don't mind spending the extra effort needed to get the best results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good scanner but quite poor software I bought this scanner to digitize a set of b/w glass negatives of the beginning of the XXc. The scanner itself seems quite fine--I have no real reference, but any pixel peeping I have done did not find anything wrong in the results. Scan time is rather on the long side, but bearable (a couple of minutes for half a 9cm x 12cm glass negative at 1200dpi--I need to do it in two rounds and use Photoshop to stick them together, as the whole negative exceeds the backlit size, but this goes perfectly fine). What I found pretty disappointing is the software. Notice that I am using the EPSON Scan application to produce 16-bit TIFFs and do all processing manually in Photoshop (that is, I do not use any of the fancy options to "improve" the image). Here are a few annoying things: (1) I scan repeatedly in the same area (backlit, cannot use the provided placement guides due to the size of the originals) and EVERY TIME I do a preview (more later on why I need a preview every time) I need in fact to do two, one of the complete backlit area and one of the (unchanged) zoom. Why it does not honour my preselected area from one preview to the next one is obscure to me. (2) The preview does not indicate burned or black areas, as any decent software does (CameraRAW is perfect for that). (3) The levels/histogram control has the usual little triangles to control... one would guess the white and the black points. In fact, no, they control light and shadows, with one extremely annoying consequence: you cannot just place them at the edge of the histogram and therefore hope to capture the whole range used by the photo; you have to place them "somewhere" and judge visually if you are clipping either edge of the spectrum (see point 2). Just to give the reader an idea of the weirdness of this, the default/reset position of the cursors is not 0 and 100%/255 but something like 50 and 225 (I cannot remember the exact numbers now as the scanner is not connected, but you see the point) and this is probably supposed to be the setting which gives a linear (?) rendering of the whole scanner range (they call it "reset"...). (4) The automatic exposure is just plain bad: probably to please the crowds it has high contrast (nothing too wrong here) and clips white and blacks badly. Not even close to be usable--hence I need to do two previews (see point 1) and judge visually the best placement of the edges of the levels (and it is tough, see points 2 and 3). In summary, I am happy of my purchase because I manage to do what I bought it for and with the quality I desire. Yet, achieving what I want is rather painful and certainly takes much more time and effort than it should if the user interface had been slightly more competently written.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from null I've had my V600 Photo Scanner for about nine months now, and I've digitized well over a thousand slides and negatives. I am not just pleased, I am absolutely delighted with this machine. And the Digital Ice feature does a great job of cleaning up dirt and nicks on the originals. The overall results are at least as good as those for pictures that I previously had digitized commercially, and all things considered, the price is quite reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from null Having been the proud owner of a V600 for one week and really running it through its paces, I am satisfied. The main reason I bought it, photo negs, slides, film material,the V600 handles fairly well. My only criticism IS the very tacky way EPSON has designed the so-called "slide" holder. With every change of slides YOU HAVE TO touch the glass, that won't fly. Seems to me EPSON could have come up with a better design for the holder and the plastic is cheap, destined to eventually break

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 Photo Scanner Pros: Easy to set-up and use with Windows 7 64 bit system. Great results for documents, photo prints, and 35mm slides (some 70 years old). I have scanned over 3000 35mm slides. Speed, resolution and faithfulness to the original were excellent. Cons: minor issues & annoyances only - slide tray just sits on the scanner glass rather than being locked in place (seems like a small design change could make this easier to use); scanner will sometimes start when cover is lifted (less than 1% of the time); & some slides have been rotated 90 degrees when scanned (yes, I did check the slides to insure that they were put in the correct orientation and it was the software that rotated the output).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Scanner I bought this about a month ago. I have been happy with the product. I only use it for scanning photos. I can scan 5 at one time which is a great time saver. However, you do have to make sure the pictures are separated with a reasonable space or it will scan as one. The scratch repair does not work on the photos. I've had some really bad pictures and it really cannot repair them at all. But all in all I am happy with it. I would recommend buying this. I wish I had negatives to try on it, but I don't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scanner So far I have used this scanner just for one thing - scanning dozens of strips of 35mm B&W negatives. I am extremely pleased with the experience. The Epson scanning software was very easy to use and gave me no problems. My only small criticism with the scanner is with the 35mm filmstrip holder - the cover for the strip is a little too flimsy and doesn't seem to clip down solidly on the strips at all the clip points. This didn't seem to affect the results however which were always excellent. I would also like to be able to purchase a second filmstrip holder as an accessory so that I could always have a loaded holder ready to go to speed up the scanning process. Everything else was great!

My operating system is Windows 7 and I have not had any problems because of it like some report in the reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V 600 Scanner I bought this scanner with hi hopes of using it on various size photo negatives that I kept through the years, some being 50 years old. At first I had a lot of trouble producing digital pictures I wanted from the negatives scanned to my computer. The info supplied with scanner was good to install and hook up everything,but that's where it ended. I spent quite a few hours trying and retrying to produce what I called good pictures on the computer. So far I've successfully scanned 4 different size negatives. You have to experiment with the holders for some of the smaller negatives. I'm sure this machine is capable of producing a lot better pictures once I get better at using it. So far (about 1 month of ownership) I am satisfied with my purchase. I'm not a pro photographer just a hobbiest and I would recommend this V600 to others.

The pictures that came to life from the obscure slides and negatives were amazing and I emailed them to my family and friends. I was able to preview and easily crop the pictures and use the features to improve them such as adjusting the exposure and taking out the dust.

It does that, though awkwardly because the slide holders provided aren't really designed for that size. The software user interface has a dozen or more glaring design defects; it took me a while to find workarounds, but I finally did. And the bundled photo editing software, ArcSoft Photo Studio 6, is pathetic, but that's OK because I already had something better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanning quality and time saving software. I have two other scanners but needed a third one to increase the speed and quality of my scanning and to allow me to scan negatives. This scanner ended up being a great purchase on both counts. The negative scanning is terrific! It is fun to turn old strips into high quality digital photos. It scans at a high enough resolution to blow them up nice and big. The regular scanning is great also and the software allows you to scan several photos at once and draw outlines around them right in the tool so it scans just the photos but all at once. The only downside is that the scanner software seems to have some memory bugs and will complain that I need to close other apps even if nothing is open. A reboot of my PC fixes the problem. Also I need to reboot every time I shut off or disconnect the scanner. Mostly I do a large batch of scans at one time so it doesn’t bother me too much. Overall a great tool and a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pick another scanner You can only scan medium format and 35mm negative and transparencies. I like to include the film edges on the scans. there is no mask to do that, I had to make my own mask. If you use the Epson masks, it sometimes scans the film incorrectly, for some reason, it can't distinguish landscape from portrait. Often, you'll open the scan software and you can't change or reset the software from reflective to transparency with opening and shutting down Epson Scan, I sometimes have to restart the computer to get it to function. When I first first bought the scanner, the Epson Scan software was decent, but when we got new iMacs with Catalina, the Epson Scan software for Catalina was totally different, very basic and incredibly slow and wonky. Then Epson tried to pass me off to some European company that tried to get me to by their scanner software, there was a free version, but it was as wonky and useless as Epson Scan. Save your money and buy something else.

Software is OK, but sometimes a challenge. Very time consuming to scan negatives. Can preview multiple negatives, but then have to scan each one individually. With larger negatives, the Epson software split negative into 3 separate images. VueScan software is easier to use with some of the odd size negatives. A limited version of SilverFast software is available with purchase of the scanner, but this package was difficult to use. I would recommend this scanner with reservations. I would not use it for documents as it is too slow.

It is very easy to use, and like most items of this nature, there is a small learning curve. It works very well and has many nice features, but sadly, there are a couple of challenges. This scanner wasn't designed to scan 110, 126, or 127 negatives. I purchased negative holders for the scanner through a secondary source, but the ease is gone and each picture must be individually handled. Thinking I will have to purchase another scanner as I have about 8 years worth of negatives to scan in. Really thought my V600 would do the job. :(

My photos are small as the ones I am scanning are 50+ years old. The only drawback is that the scanner will cut off part of the photo if you place it on the edge or too close to the edge. It will also combine photos if you place them too close together on the scanning bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought my 2nd one because the 1st was fantastic! Outstanding product. I scanned over 10,000 images and countless photos during a 10-year period. Finally, after all that, my 1st V600 pooped out with a hardware failure. Well worth the money to get that kind of mileage out of it. And then, Epson gives me a $30 discount on a new V600. Kudos to Epson!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good I purchased the V600 because I have over 1800 slides from my parents I wanted to digitize. Some of these slides are over 60 years old. Most of these are medium 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 slides. The scanner did a great job, however it was not always accurate in its automatic detection when I put 3 slides in the holder. I ended up mostly putting just two slides in the holder at a time with side separation. I also had some 35mm slides and it did a great job on those, no issues. Other than the color correction which did a great job as many slides had faded, I did not use any of the other "correction" features the scanner offers. I may go back and rescan some pictures if I determine I might get a better scan using of the machine's technology, but I have not tried that yet. For medium format slides I can't imagine anything beating this machine.

Other than the fact that I have to load the pictures manually into the scanner (which you have to do in almost all of them) it is simple to use.

That is one drawback I am trying to solve as I have over 500 strips of 110 negatives to scan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good scans despite outdated software Don't buy this scanner for speed. It isn't. Buy it if you are looking for quality scans at a reasonable price. This it delivers. While the included software does a decent job of photo restoration (color, fading), overall, the software is outdated and lacking; after my first day I purchased third party software. Which I don't think you should have to do at this price level. That being said, the v600 is well designed with thoughtful button placement, quiet operation (relatively speaking) and solid construction; the glass underside has, so far, stayed clean of airborne dust and such. How are the scans, you ask? IMO, above the average for it's price-point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from v600 Photo scanner Great scanner bad film holders. The software is OK but I have not tried anything very complicated with it. The film holders are nearly useless. The 35mm are hard to load if there is any curl in the negatives. Sanning a single 35mm photo negative is impossible. It would be great if they added something to match the 35mm sprocket holes. The other negative holder fits only one negative dimension. It is for 2 1/4 wide negatives. It just barely holds the negative. There is nothing for 126 film negatives. It would be nice if they would provide a holder with a variable width function. I have not tried the slide functions. I purchased the scanner to print some old photos that have been lost. I will be only able to capture 25% of them. I would return the scanner if it were possible

I found that the Epson V600 was what I was looking for. I then read all reviews available at that time for the V600 and then ordered the scanner. I received the V600 and found setting it up was not a problem. The size is perfect for my computer desk along with my Epson NX430 printer. Due to medical problems I was not able to start using the V600 for a few months. When I started using I found that the time scanning slides, negatives and prints was acceptable. I also found that the quality of some of my older prints were better after scanning then the prints themself. I have also used the V600 to scan prints and documents from textbooks to assist my daughter with her college courses. I am very pleased with the scanner and its’ performance.

I have 3,000 slide taken in 1956 to 1980 and I was happy to find a reasonably price scanner that I can used for other projects. I also have a Epson Styllus Photo R220 that goes well with the V600.

The instructions were not that clear as far as setting up the scan, but after I figured not to try a set group scan, I was able to start my first scan and it went easily after that. I was able to play around with the ICE function to get an initial touch up of damaged photos and was amazed at how much it fixed up the photo. I have to try the the 35mm negatives and slides still, but since I have the experience with medium format, it shouldn't be a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine home flatbed scanner I bought the scanner for home photo scanning, and it has provided excellent performance: excellent and consistent color and resolution, reasonable speed, and useful (if dated) software. It's compatible with third-party software. The hardware-enhanced DIGITAL ICE for dust removal, even on prints, usually eliminates having to manually touch up the images for spots or scratches if I'm careful to keep the glass and the source image fairly clean. While I bought it for prints, it also does well with negatives and slides in small batches, producing clean scans and (if I'm not in a hurry) images with resolution often limited by the film grain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scanner - V600 Scanner is easy to use whether scanning pictures, negatives or text, however, using PhotoShop with this unit can be overpowering and cumbersome. It may be due to the fact that I use WindowsXP platform. My primary use is to scan in items for use on auction sites and it works great for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Scanner This scanner is great. I had many trays of 35mm slides dating back to 1958 and needed to get them onto my laptop. I scanned 5,782 slides with no trouble and I was pleased with the speed. I then scanned a large number of 35mm negatives. I am now in the process of scanning all of my prints. Getting all of these photos on my laptop has allowed me to organize them into easily accessible files to print or share with my children and grandchildren. This scanner was one of my all time best buys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little scanner I bought this scanner primarily to scan medium format film, and it does a great job of that. The only issue that I have is that almost everything I scan is black and white film, and the DIGITAL ICE software doesn't work with b&w to fix scratches and spots on the film, and they don't advertise that point. Their other option for scratch and spot removal only works some of the time...I'm not sure why this is. In those cases I end up having to spend quite a bit of time manually removing the dust and scratches with Photoshop. Other than that, it is a great scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I have had various scanners but upgraded to this one to allow scanning of 120 size film slides as well as 35mm slides in particular. Even thought it did not come with a mask designed in particular for the medium format slide, I found that removing the hinged part from the film holder mask allowed me to scan 3 at a time easily while leaving them in their mount. The software is smooth and easily adjustable for color correction on individual slides among the 3 being scanned. It worked equally well for scanning 4 of the 35mm slides at a time in the supplied mount. Note that slides must be scanned with the inside cover of the lid removed to permit top illumination. This is done by following instructions to simply sliding it out of the tabs on each side of the lid. Scanning of other documents on the bed are smooth and fast. The bed is larger than letter size so even slightly oversize photos or documents will lay down easily. The cover is articulated to permit it laying down on an open book, if necessary. Lots of options to facilitate anything I have had a need for. Quality is fine, easy to operate, fast, simple saving operations to files. I am totally pleased, especially for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner is wonderful! I bought this photo scanner because I have SO many old photos and slides from when I owned film cameras, and I wanted to store these images on a flash drive for easy access and in case anything ever happened to my home! This scanner is very easy to use, has great features (I especially like the dust removal option), and works perfectly for my intended purpose. If you're looking for a great product to scan those old photos and slides (and, who doesn't want to keep those special memories?!) - this is your scanner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever! First, I bought this quite a while ago... and it's still not obsolete! There might be technical cons for the pros, but as a non-techie I found it to be incredibly easy to install and use. I am making a project of scanning all my older photos/family pics. I plan to copy them to flash drives for my kids. (Fortunately I can scan however many I can fit within the frame. I've been sticking with 4 (3x5).) Also, my dad died 25 years ago when my daughter was 4 years old. This was of course before digital cameras so I don't have very many pictures. I put a negative I had of a picture of him with my daughter on the scanner. Not only did I get a beautiful picture of them together, but there was another pic on the strip that I didn't realize was there. I would have paid ANY price for these two pictures. Instead all I had to buy was this very reasonably priced scanner. I would recommend this scanner to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scanner I love my new Epson V600 Photo Scanner. It is very easy to scan directly into Adobe Photoshop for editing. I can scan multiple pictures at a time, and if spaced correctly, each one scans individually. I tried it with negatives from the early 70's, and it works great. It also easily scans documents. Great for overall use of scanning photos (color and black and white) and documents. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanner for Win 8 but obsolete software I love my first Epson Perfection Photo scanner (1650) but the new V600 runs on Windows 8 so I purchased it from the Epson.com store. It is a refurbished model and I was assured online the Windows 8 drivers are available. They are and they work great. The Photoshop Elements 6.0 included with the scanner is useless with Windows 8 as well as Windows 7, and Windows Vista. Epson's response that this is the version shipped with this scanner is a bit beside the point. Was this scanner actually first shipped before Vista was shipped? I doubt that very much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Limitations with this Scanner I had been using an Epson Perfetion 1650 fpr several years with a Windows XP machine and when I went to use it on a newer Windows 7 machine there were no drivers from Epson that would work and I was forced to buy this newer scanner which is OK, but the interface software does not have the easy features of the older machine. For example with the 1650 I could easily change the amount of reduction or magnification and I canot find the same feature with the V600. The V600 also has a poorer operating manual. The scans that I have done with the V600 are certainly OK, but I cannot determine if they are any better than with the older 1650. Is there a test that would make a comparison? I believe that Epson has the obligation to update its drivers when newer opeating systems. This would not be hard, but forcing us to buy the newest model scanner is not good business in the long run..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mixed review It works nicely for color snapshots -have done almost 2000 so far. So overall I am satisfied. There are a couple of issues. One is that on photos like glaciers on an overcast day there is grey sky, grey ice and grey water so it scans in black and white.. I tried to force it to do color by taking out of auto mode but could not figure out how to make it work that way. The setting were too complicated for me. Also after about 3 hours of scanning it gives the error message cannot connect to computer. I tried different USB ports, shutting off and on, rebooting the laptop. The only thing that works is 2 hours rest - maybe it overheats. The other thing that is really annoying is that the .img counter goes to 999 and then starts over. So in one folder I hit 999 and it went back to 1 so I had to rename all the rest of the pix from 1000 - 1050 so they'd be in sequence then when I started a new folder for a new batch they reverted to 001 and are on the way to 999 again. Had to do that twice when it hit 999.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performer with a few minor issues Bought this to scan several thousand photos from 48+ years of marriage. Had some minor startup issues: 1) Scan button would not start scanner, but desktop icon did - reboot of system fixed this issue; 2) ABBYY FineReader that is included on the installation disk is version 9.x and IS NOT compatible with Microsoft Office 2013 (and possibly others) and will cause MS Office to crash. I had to uninstall ABBYY and remove the COMs from office (info online). I will say that Epson customer support (email) was very responsive to both my inquiries (button not responding and ABBYY). With the ABBYY FineReader they sent a link to a newer version that did not cause any issues. When scanning multiple pictures at a time (in auto mode), it sometimes will scan two (occasionally three) pictures as a single picture even though they are spaced on the scanner bed. This is usually fixed by moving the offending pictures to other areas of the scanner bed or scanning fewer pictures. On rare occasion, it appears the scanner starts on its own...or perhaps I brushed against one of the scanning buttons... Overall, I am very pleased with the scanner and the software works much better than older versions I have used over the years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality for the price So far, I've scanned one very large print, 1 negative, and about 1200 slides. The quality seems good for the price although I haven't used alternative scanners to compare. The slides ranged back to nearly 70 years old. Most of them retained their color although some have become discolored and some were overexposed to begin with. For the slides, following another reviewers recommendations, I used 48-bit color, 2400 dpi resolution and checked the unsharp mask and Color Restoration boxes. I have mixed emotions about the color restoration. Sometimes it improved things and sometimes I was dissatisfied with the result. In general, I felt that with the box unchecked, there was too much blue, but with it checked, there was too much yellow. But, for the most part, I left it checked. I also tried higher dpi settings but found there was no increase in quality of the result and it just made larger files. Overall, I think you get really good quality scans for a good price. It does take up a fair amount of desk space. I also had some trouble with it dropping communications with my computer so that I had to restart the software and turn off and on the scanner. Mildly irritating but it could be because it was going through my docking station.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High-quality, low price I bought the V600 to replace an aging V500 that would occasionally lock up and require a restart of services. I loved the quality and ease of use of the V500 and the V600 is basically identical; I scan to high-resolution TIFF format as my default. The only thing I'd love to see offered is for the software to split multiple reflective images (photos as opposed to negatives or transparencies) into separate outputs. More info on that...when I scan negatives or transparencies (slides) and I pre-scan, the software separates the images into multiple files when scanning. That seems like it would be easy to do with prints as well...it might make some mistakes, but it would provide a much faster way to scan five or six photos in one pass without having to cut them up later to save as separate files.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality of Scanner I have had this scanner for more than 3 years and it works well. I like the ability to scan multiple photos at once. I use the professional mode and like the ability to use color correction on older photos. I also use it frequently to scan documents for business and personal use. The only issue that I have had with it was with it’s incompatability with Windows 10. It would not store scanned documents at all. Epson support helped me to change the scanner properties thru the Windows 10 properties to run in a compatability mode (Windows Vista). It performs well now. The first call to support linked me with a tech who I could not understand due to his accent. I called back later (I did not complain to him) and got someone that I could understand. She completely understood my issue, took control of my PC and directed me thru the corrective process. That was a much better experience.

I keep the drivers up to date which has helped sustain its compatibility through three (3) laptops I have owned over the last eight years. Mind you, there are most robust scanners which Epson manufactures and I dream of owning one day. But for total value for a personal use/home business function, the V600 is an ideal solution!

However, the software needs to be upgraded for Windows 10; wi-fi file transmission would make it even more useful. The film carriers seem a bit flimsy, and are somewhat difficult to load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scanner, slides and negatives never looked better. I've had this scanner for only two days, but can already say with confidence that it was WELL worth buying. HIGHLY recommended. My color slides and negatives are being scanned as I write this, with already spectacular results, and I will sleep much easier knowing they are safely stored. If you are only scanning to disk for viewing on a monitor, or making 4x6 or 5x7 prints, the Epson software does a good job. But if you are scanning for large format printing (A3+, 13 x 19 inch) as I am, then I would also strongly recommend the purchase Vuescan from Hamrick software. I've used it for a couple years now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scanning 35mm Slides and More I bought this over a year ago and finally got around to doing what I need to do, which is start scanning a few thousand 35mm slides taken from about 1970 to 1990. After studying the manual and experimenting, I settled on a set of scanning parameters and decided to use the TIFF file format for master copies. I used 24 bit color, 2400 dpi, unsharp mask: low, color restoration, and dust removal:high. The result is I scan 4 slides at a time in the holder provided. Scan takes 2 min and 15 sec for 4 slides and the result is TIFF files of 18 MB each with slide resolution of 2040 X 3070. DIGITAL ICE was not used because of much longer scan times with little benefit because I was very careful to remove most dust and was very careful with cleanliness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good - Very Good when or if software works I purchased this machine to copy many old slides, restore color and remove dust from the images copied. I am very happy with these functions - WHEN THEY WORK! For some reason, the software sometimes works and sometimes does not work. Documentation is severely lacking. So much so that you have to wonder if Epson really is interested in supporting their customers and selling products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall the scanner works great. I purchased it a few weeks ago and it took a while to get use to how things work. Scanning slides I found you need to leave the size of the image and choose a higher resolution say 2400 dpi (or higher if you have room to store large files). Same with color negatives. B&W negatives are best at around 1200 dpi to keep the file size manageable. Don't forget to clean the slides and negatives! Dust will collect on them no matter how clean you think you space is unless you use a 'clean room' The software is outdated although the color correction and backlight features work OK I use other software to edit the scans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MISSING NEGATIVE HOLDERS FROM MANUFACTURER PACKAGING Bought this from my local photo retailer. Got a decent price, was excited to scan a bunch of 120. Open the box, set it all up - missing the negative holders! The one thing that makes it useful as a film scanner, and it's not there. Retailer didn't have any other V600's as they're on back order, and it will take at least a week to get negative holders shipped. Overall really unsatisfied, but I still can't speak for the quality of the scanner, since, you know, I can't really use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faster & Even Better Epson Perfection Model I've been thinking about getting an upgrade from my V330 for several years and finally got the V600. It is a little larger (length) than the older one which means I had to set it up on the top of my credenza instead of inside a cabinet. But that's okay. It is quieter and much faster and I think the PDF's are clearer. I'm enjoying it and should not have waited so long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and easy to use I bought this a month or month-and-a-half ago to start scanning thousands of pictures of various sizes. They are old photos from the 20s 30s and 40s and newer photos as well. Somewhere very small like 1 by 2 inch. Took this computer nerd around 15 minutes to hook up the machine and another 20 minutes to learn how to use it. At 300 DPI 600 DPI and 1200 DPI it is very fast and the quality of the pictures is so much better than the originals. The cropping feature with the software is absolutely wonderful and allows the scanning process to go much quicker. I would definitely recommend this scanner to anyone trying to capture old photos and numerous photos as I am doing. Great products so far

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for money; continuous improvement ideas for 5 stars I've purchased 2 V600's and scanned over 25,000 photos; I wore the first one out only through developing too many scratches on the glass. This is a great scanner for the money and can handle most of the film types and photos I've run across. For standard point-and-shoot film, its resolution capture is adequate and is my go-to choice (even considering I have a classic film scanner). If the following details were addressed, I would consider it a 5 star scanner for my situation: 1. The 35mm film trays can't hold curled film that well. Badly curled film will touch the glass and cause newton rings. With standard frame sizes, it would be good to have a 35mm film tray that has cross bars between each frame to help flatten the film. 2. It would be great if the 35mm film holders could hold 4 strips of 4 frame film. The tray was designed to hold 2 strips of 6 frames, but almost every 35mm film strip I've come across has been cut in frames of 4. I believe the machine could hold 4 strips of 4 frames, though I could see creating a film holder rigid enough with that large of an opening to be difficult. 3. It would be great it they made an adapter or holder for 110 film and disk film. The machine is capable and I made custom adapters to accommodate these film types. 4. It would be helpful to have a software button to turn on and off the lens lights; this really helps show any dust on the glass to show when and where it needs cleaned. 5. It would be helpful and more productive if the scanner covered the entire glass area. The scan area cuts off about 1/8" on the top and right side, and nearly 1/4" on the left and bottom side. In trying to capture every details of old family photos, this is unacceptable, so the photo has to be positioned manually away from the corners that assist with keeping it straight. It also doesn't allow 4 4x6" photos to be scanned at the same time; the all fit on the glass perfectly, but you lose the edges. 6. Similar to the glass, the auto crop feature seems to crop a bit too much off negatives and photos. I've resorted to selecting all scan areas manually to get every inch of the photo. 7. The color restoration feature is pretty good, but it seems to be slightly heavy on contrast by about 5-8 ticks on the scale. To keep whites from being too bright, and darks being too dark, I typically have to manually widen the exposure scale ever so slightly.

Fairly easy to operated. A little on the slow side but it does a great job. It takes about 3 minutes for each group of 4 slides to download. If you have a lot of slides you want to save and preserve, this is the way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scanner is great; software had fixable issues The scanner is great and the software is finally working well. At first, I thought the problem was because I already had the Epson Scan software installed from an all-in-one printer I have. I thought this “new” software version was fighting with the older version (however unlikely that seemed). The newly-installed Epson Scan software worked fine with images but would not scan to a PDF. Thought this could be solved by uninstalling and reinstalling; nope. I’m no computer geek, but I can fix minor problems, and I know when to call for professional help. When uninstalling and reinstalling the software failed to solve the problem, I called Epson technical support and spent two hours on the phone with Level 2 support. Epson technical support person was very patient, having me repeat everything I’d already done. He sent a special registry cleaner, which I ran; didn't help. Then he said that one of Microsoft’s updates did something to cause this. (If I had called Microsoft technical support, they would have said it was Epson’s fault.) On my Windows 10 laptop, the fixes were: (1) under Device Properties, on the text tab, uncheck “searchable” and (2) Epson Scan must be “run as administrator” every time. Now that I’m past those problems, I’m very happy with the scanner and the software.

They are great devices, hardware wise, but the software seems to be a bit strange at least as the defaults go. Functionally the software is fine but they do things like when you scan a PDF it defaults to put the scan into the photo folder.. just what I need - a bunch of invoices, purchase orders, catalogs or white papers in with my photos, the defaults all seem strange. As long as you know that and just check to be sure they did not select a weird default (there are about a dozen that bug me). it is a really good unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality scans ... but I would give it 4-5 stars but the software leaves a bit to desired. It is not very intuitive. You will scan and then there will be no option as to saving or printing. Sometimes it scans and then sits there. The software is VERY slow -- you scan and then wait, wait, wait and then sometimes you find there is a window hidden with the thumbnails -- it doesn't pop to the front. There seem to be multiple apps to do basically the same scan. Sometimes the front buttons stop responding and you have to power down. The manual is poor. And there is no place to store the film and slide holder.

I did not have difficulty as it's installation and setup was not unlike many other products I own. However, for some people, they may require more step by step instructions.

I'm sold on Epson so I went looking for a new one. "More features than before, new and improved, higher resolution, etc, etc, etc." When I plugged it in and started using it . . . whats this? It has the same screen controls as my old one. Checking all the new wonderful features I came to the realization that the V600 was the same as the V500 that I have had for years. Same resolution, same color controls, etc. etc. But the new one is in an entirely new cabinet. It's black instead of gray. I'm I mad? No! This new one is far better looking that the old one. It's black and matches all my other computer equipment. Isn't that what's important. I keep telling myself that . . . and the trouble connecting to my computer, bad Cable. My son is using the V500 in his business now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased for the price I've only been using my Epson V600 for about 3 weeks, so I'm still learning. So far I've been very pleased with how easy it is to use and the quality of the scanning. I've used it to import old photos, many old slides, several antique (125 year old) photographs and a couple of recent documents. The only problem I've had was when I attempted to scan in multiple forty year-old black and white photos. Even when spacing them at least as far apart as instructed, I've had several instances where the scanner read them as color prints and scanned two at time as a single file. While not the end of the world it was a bother. Other than that the unit has worked flawlessly and I'm very happy with it. It's doing all that I hoped for and then some. I should mention that I haven't scanned any negatives yet, but I suspect that will go smoothly as well.

After researching scanners and reading reviews I decided on the Perfection V600 and purchased one just over a month ago and although I have only used the Full Auto Mode thus far, I have scanned over 400 30+ year old slides with incredible results. This is so easy to use (and I am a beginner) that I was scanning slides within 30 minutes of opening the box and the files were clean and clear and the color was very good. One day, I may even experiment with the other modes and with the Photo Studio 6 software included. I hope this scanner lasts a good, long while because I have many more slides, negatives and photos to scan.

This scanner is helping me archive the old paper pix - declutter and streamline my office. I aim to be paperless and this scanner is so easy to use that I look forward to using my spare moments... I am scanning everything. Thanks for a great product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V-600 Scanner is great The V-600 is the next best thing to a dedicated slide and negative scanner. I am a professional photographer and I wanted a scanner that was versatile and produced scans high enough quality for smaller or daily use prints. The scanner does job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Hardware, Some Software Issues The V600 is actually a great piece of hardware, but software installation issues knock it down a star. As others have noted, software installation from disc does NOT follow the stated instructions, is confusing, and prone to failure. In addition, the software version on the disc is outdated, and the program(s) must be downloaded from this website for use with the most recent OS. Again, the extra steps and procedures are poorly described, and may cause frustration. Despite all this, if you do managed to get the software and hardware installed and working, the UI is fairly good, usage is relatively easy, and results are outstanding. I use this scanner only as a flatbed, owning a separate film scanner for negatives and slides. I tested my third-party software for that scanner with the V600, and was disappointed. The Epson scanner software is actually better. So for prints and other flat, positive materials, the V600 can yield excellent results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar photo scanner This is a very versitile scanner. I like being able to load up the flatbed with prints and designate the print area for each along with individually noting which are scanned with various enhancements. The negative scanning is not quite as easy and both the directions and negative holders could be improved (and perhaps have on the newer models). The scans are reasonably quick (except if one uses high resolution which may be needed for negatives but not for prints). There are a few issues that prevent a 5 star rating. The scanner does no scan the entire flatbed, so one has to be very careful when placing prints on it to be scanned. It can be quite annoying having to reposition to get the print scanned edge to edge. Document scanning is not as easy as on other scanners. The preview gives you a false impression that the document will not scan correctly unless one boosts brightness and or contrast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 and slides to backup disc I think the Epson Perfection V600 may be perfect for print-pictures (great quality) but old slides are problematic by not always centering an image… can't figure it out since the other 3 may scan beautifully. Need a feature that clearly indicates SLIDE to hard drive (or Photoshop file). OR need the workaround. Would recommend the quality.

Being able to scan at very high % give you the ability to produce posters from tiny pictures. I scanned color slides from an old slide set and made 13 X 19 inch posters that were perfect reproductions. I like the fact that you can set up the software interface to be simple or as intricate as you want. perfect for beginners or experts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 is, well, perfection I'm an artist who was looking for a good quality, affordable scanner. I had two people, who are in similar lines of work, recommend this to me. So far I've mostly scanned pencil sketches, but they come in exactly like they look on paper – no thin lines go invisible, line weights and pressure look accurate. It's exactly what I needed. As for the logistics of scanning with Photoshop? Piece of cake. Simplest process I've ever used. My only (laughable) complaint is that the nickname in my Finder is "Perv600" lol. ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Purchased the flatbed scanner to scan old negatives, positives, and prints. It does a nice job. Easy to install and use. Downloaded most recent driver for Windows 8.1. Like the software, some learning curve, but by using and experimenting easy to get very good results. Lots of tips and tutorials online for this scanner also. Do not be fooled by reviews older than a couple of years. The newer drivers seem to have helped with resolution and contrast problems reported in early reviews. Worth the price if you want to digitize old photos, negatives, or slides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What about Mac?? I've had scanners for years--back to the old hp SCSI Scanjet and Windows 3.1. Recently switched to a Mac and bought this because it was recommended for Macs but the software is ancient and not fully compatible with Mac OS X El Capitan. Very disappointing. There were other manufacturers' scanners I would have preferred because of features but eliminated them because they were not fully compatible with the lates Mac OS. Thought the Epson was. It "will" work, but not optimally. Have not tried all the features yet. I would recommend it to Windows users, maybe not for Mac users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from null I have hundreds of colored slides taken from the 1950’s thru the 80’s. I have long wanted to scan them to digital images. In the past, I purchased two different inexpensive slide scanners and returned them because the scanned slides needed a lot of time consuming color corrections and the negative scans were totally unacceptable. I purchased this Epson V600 prepared to be disappointed. I only purchased it because the reviews I read were very good and the dealer offered a total satisfaction 14-day return policy. Still, I was skeptical but had nothing to lose. I have about four hundred very old slides that were taken with Ektachrome that have over time developed an overall orange tint. I considered them lost. This scanner has the “Color Restoration” option that does an amazing job of restoring the original colors in these slides. It is also the first scanner that I have used that does a very good job scanning negatives. There are features for the advanced user that I have not tried since the Auto Mode with its options satisfies all my expectations. I have now scanned over 300 slides. I cannot imagine a better product for the money and I am thrilled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection: Lives Up To Its Name I just set up my Epson Perfection V600 scanner. Setup was a breeze. I just followed the instruction sheet. My first project was scanning 35mm slides I shot almost 30 years ago. I scanned at the highest resolution with dust reduction on. I thought these images would take forever to scan based on my past experience with other scanners. The Epson took about a minute per slide and produced excellent quality images at approximately 7200x4800. I highly recommend this scanner to anyone working with film images or flat artwork. A great product at an affordable price. What's not to like?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 I bought this to replace my old Epson 4490 which died recently. My need was based on slide scanning and it seems to do well at this task. It is a little slow at scanning, and loading and unloading is a pain, but the 3200 dpi scans are good.(~1 min per slide) A power interrupt on the scanner will require a software restart. It does remember setup parameters so once things are working as you want them its easy to stop and start, however. The options are many, but the scans are very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 photo scanner I was waiting for the scanner as I had over 100 35mm negatives to scan for Roxborough State Park in Colorado. I am a volunteer naturalist and they needed these old negatives scanned and digitized for archival purposes. I was able to scan them all in about four hours at fairly high resolution 2400 dpi. I recommend that you scan fairly high so that if you decide you need a larger print than an 8x10 then you can get a fairly good resolution. I have been using Epson Perfection scanners for over 10 years and I highly recommend them for scanning your slides. They can be printed in color 8x10's with amazing resolution. I haven't tried the ICE program, but I assume it will do ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linux user I bought this scanner to replace a Perfection 1660 Photo. The 1660 worked perfectly with linux. I am using ubuntu 14.04 64-bit. I downloaded and installed iscan-gt-x820-bundle-1.0.0.x64.deb before plugging in the V600. I found the V600 scanner works with xsane and scanlite but only in 8-bit depth. This was a big disappointment. Usually Epson is well supported in linux. To work around the 16-bit issue I use VueScan, not a free or open source product. The software provided by Epson for linux is called iscan. Compared to the windows software Epson provides with the V600 iscan is very basic and not useful. Epson should provide the same level software for linux as they do for windows. The scanner itself is a good product. It makes less noise than the 1660. The scan times are fast. The lamp warms up fast. I scan a mix of prints and film. The prints have faded over time and scanning in 16-bit allows me to fix the color issues. For film scanning the ICE technology works well for remedying dust and scratches. ICE is slow so I don't always use it. I do not turn the scanner on and off, it sleeps when not used. IF EPSON provided linux software as useful as their windows software I would give this scanner 5-stars. There are many good linux image editing programs like gimp, digiKam and darktable. Its too bad Epson provided such a basic scanner software as iscan for linux.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The jury is still out It wasn't until the last day of my 30 day free trial that I got around to installing this photo scanner which I very much needed as I have a 100 year collection of thousands of negatives, prints and slides that need to be digitized. I spent perhaps five hours experimenting with it last night. Alas, I discovered it didn't matter that I waited until the last day. 30 days would not suffice, 90 days would not suffice to sufficiently evaluate this scanner. I have been using a document scanner for years that does a great job with photos but cannot do slides or negatives. So that was the main purpose behind this purchase, to handle my slides and negatives. And it did not take me long at all to understand that scanning slides and negatives is going to require a big learning curve. That's the first big negative. I can already see that this is going to be a huge amount of work. Perhaps after I've gotten comfortable with ICE and PhotoShop, neither of which I've used before, I'll feel differently. In fact, getting the free PhotoShop was a major inducement to buying this scanner since that alone justified the price. But I was quite surprised at how difficult it is to use and how low the resolution is on the scanned output. Also I specifically asked if it was possible to scan negative and slides without using the provided masks as I figured it would be a big time saver just to throw them on the glass instead of fitting them into the frame. Alas, it's not possible. You must use the frame. Otherwise you get an error message saying it cannot do the scan. So there is a significant problem already with the very substantial difficulty of scanning negatves, not only how awkward it is to fit them into the framing device, but that the resolution is just so low. As I said you get an error message if you do not use that device. I have tried laying negative strips directly on the glass and I have found that I can ignore the error message and it will still scan. But because of the design, there is a small and quite unnecessary space between the lense and the glass that prevents contact and therefore the negative cannot be scanned in sharp focus. There really is no need for this design as it makes the process of getting a quality scan much more difficult. On the plus side, and there are a lot of plusses, I have reviewed the specs for all the higher priced scanners and found that this one does indeed have the highest resolution that Epson makes in a scanner. And to be fair, though the scanned images are really small files (50-150KB), unless I blow them up all the way to fill my 22" monitor, they look quite acceptable. So I have concluded I have a lot of study and practice yet to do before I can do justice to a review. It is one of the very highest rated photo scanners that I found in my research and I am hoping the rating is ultimately justified by the performance. The big minus here is that I can already see that it's going to be a big chore to scan negatives. On the other hand, I don't know if any other scanner would be easier. On the plus side, and this is a very big plus, scanning slides seems to be a snap. You just drop the slides into the provided mask and hit scan. The whole process takes just a few seconds. And I'm already well equipped to scan photos and assume this one will do at least as good a job as my all-in-one unit, probably a good deal better. I may just have to have prints made from my negatives and scan the prints instead. Fortunately, negative strips are the smallest part of my collection. The largest part are the thousands of slides and I'm already satisfied just in this short time, that this will do a great job with the slides. For that alone, the purchase was worth it. Again, I reserve the right to publish an update to this review in the months ahead as I proceed with my mammoth archiving project and learn a great deal more about this scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 Scanner Very easy to set up and scan I bought this to scan old pictures that were stored in boxes for up to 50 years Takes a little manipulating to clear all the scratches on very old wrinkled pictures but it does do a decent job. For the price I was very satisfied

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, just a few things though... Fairly easy to set up. At first I was a little frustrated but found the software disk in the packaging and eventually found the ON/OFF button on the right side toward the back. The power button should be on the front, guys! I have been using this to digitize old family slides. It only goes to 1200 DPI which is a little shy of the recommended 2000 DPI but should suffice for my purposes. Epson makes very nice scanners for the home user. The weak link in this process is how much time you spend dusting / cleaning the slides before you scan. I like using the mask to scan four slides at once. Have not used the automatic "cleanup" features but put to good use the version of photoshop that came with it. Overall, a near perfect combination of quality and functionality for the home user. About the best you can do for the money. By the way, this is a replacement for a 12 year old Epson scanner that still works, just became obsolete with change to Windows 7, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid I've used the scanner for 35mm slides that are 40-50 years old. Easy to use, scans well, and the tray worked perfect. Very satisfied with it. However, the front auto scan buttons don't work if you run the cable thru a multi-port USB box so I end up doing the scans thru the software. The spot remover is not very good. You can often see a fade circle where the remover was used. If you're going to digitally clean the images use different software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Photo Scanner After several months of research, I bought the Perfection V600 in February to digitize my family photo albums, which were literally crumbling from age. This scanner allowed me to scan, restore color, and make other corrections in a single step. The results are excellent, and I will be giving commercially printed copies to each of my children for Christmas this year. Couldn't have done it with the scanner I had before this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 Scanner I bought this scanner to create JPG files for more than 2,200 family 35 MM color slides recently discovered in my mother-in-law's basement that dated back as far as 1956! The finished product is truly outstanding and I recommend this scanner for projects of this type. The software also allowed me to successfully remove both scratches and dust from the slides to create beautiful files. We made BR disc copies of these files and have given them to other family members as Christmas presents! I later used the scanner to copy 4x6 photographs of an European trip made in 2000 with similar success. I highly recommend the V600 scanner to everyone considering projects of this type. It was money well spent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 - 35mm Negative Memories Scanning my boat-load of 35mm film negatives to digital has been on my "wish list" for a long time. So when I retired, it was first on my list to start doing. I did a bunch of reading and decided to go with this scanner for multiple reasons. First it can do multiple scans at one time. Second it has a lot of automatic features to do the work for you. Third was an attractive price. Yes, there are models above this, but would I really use those features. When is good enough, good enough. I was not looking for "perfection" and not going to sell any of my scans in an art feast. After doing my research, and talking to a friend whose a photo guru, this seems like the best pick. It was not a hard setup, and the worst issue was realizing to REMOVE the part under the lid for scanning 35mm negatives (the instructions weren't fully clear on that). It took about a day to figure out the best settings to use on scanning my negatives and I am very pleased with the results. This will keep my busy for years. Other options were scanners that were made for only scanning 35mm negatives, but they did this one frame at a time - not a great way if you have many to do. You have to take the time to figure out how you are going to use the scanner to make your decision. The Internet is great for information, but also it can be information overload. So after taking time to really think it through, the Epson came in as the winner and has been rated as a top performer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High-end performance at mid-level price! This scanner is not the first EPSON Scanner I have had, and really shopped around doing comparisons to make sure I was getting the best bang for my buck, with out compromising quality in output or build. I just had my previous EPSON Scanner make it's last trip across and back the image field! It was used for many projects, but decided is was time to retire . . . I had many different brands in the past and truly put my faith in the EPSON name. Dollars to hours of service, the EPSON Scanners have proven to the the 'Pit-Bull' of image capture device producers. I would highly recommend the purchase of this equipment! I gave it 4, not 5 stars as I have not yet used the film and negative scanner on this model, but if it is anything like my previous model it will be top-notch! Oh ya, it looks great too!! . . .Styl'in!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Scanner I have only been using the V600 for a few days, but have already managed almost 1,000 scans of old negatives. I tried this years ago and gave up because my 300 DPI scanners did not offer the resolution I needed for scanning slides and 35mm negatives. It looks like I might finish the job this time. I have found a few things by trial and error. For instance, crop before scanning, not after. I had to rescan numerous overexposed negatives after I learned that trick. I also found that a piece of cardboard cut to reach from the side of the scanner plate to the transparency window allows me to align a negative directly on the plate without having to fight with the transparency frames. They are fine for 35mm film strips, but not so user friendly with individual 120 negatives. Scanning is slow, but that is to be expected when scanning at 3200 or 6400 DPI. It is impressive to see a 100 MB file produced from a 35mm negative. I find it worth the time, since most of the negatives I am dealing with are from WWII and I want to save all the detail I can.

I've used the V600 scanner to make copies of my father's WWII letters and documents (over 1000 and still counting) as well as his pictures, negatives and slides from the 1930's thru the 1960's. The scanner has performed very well with all of the images and documents; I've been very impressed with its flexibility. The fact that it also comes with OCR software has made it much easier to search documents that were typed or published; that has been a big plus. I would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scan results I'm digitizing very old 35mm slides and negatives (color and B&W negatives) as well as large quantities of color 126 negatives that my wife took when the terrible Kodak Instamatic camera was foisted on the public (OK for small prints, but nothing else). The quality of the scans is excellent, and the Digital ICE technology has saved many images that the ravages of time have degraded. I had to purchase a 126 film holder, and the process of digitizing these images is rather tedious. I wish the process for this film format were as streamlined as for 35mm negatives. But that's the only shortcoming for my digitizing requirements. All in all, it's a fantastic scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scanner, but slow Bought the V600 to replace an older brand X photo scanner due to incompatibility with Windows 7. Very pleased overall with results, especially when using Pro settings. To speed up the scanning process (I have thousands of slides to digitize), I'm using the Home mode and accepting the narrower selection of editing features. Wish the 35mm slide tray was a little more exact as there is slop around the slides, and every slide has to be manually adjusted in preview to capture the entire image. Takes quite a while to scan, but since it is pretty much automatic, I do other tasks in between changing out slides and doing the preview adjustments. Have done a number of old photos as well and am quite happy with the restored results. Also would be nice if Epson offered carriers for other than the 35 mm and med format- have seen some offered by outside vendors but not too sure if they would work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unable to use Scanner button on the scanner The product scans fine for my purposes. However, I have not been able to use the "Scan" button on the scanner to scan. I keep getting a message that the scanner cannot communicate with the computer. I have to use the "Epson Scan" program icon from the start menu. This is very inconvenient. I tried all of the fixes suggested by Epson to resolve this with no luck. I submitted a case to Epson support a month ago, but have had no response in spite of their message saying they would respond within 24 hours. I had seen this as an issue in earlier reviews about the product, but thought having a current operating system would preclude the issue. Not so. Very disappointed.

After 25 minutes of trying to fix the problem, the technician told me it was probably damaged in shipping, and that he would send a replacement. I had the new unit in 3 days, and it worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product, but... I'm using the scanner to digitalize slides from a trip I took 35 years ago, and it's doing a really good job. My unhappiness is due to not receiving Adobe Photoshop Elements with the scanner, even though there is a flyer packed with the product that says "The version of Adobe Photoshop Elements included with your Epson product has been updated. See Photoshop Elements help for details..." The software listing on the Epson site does not include Photoshop Elements, but ArcSoft PhotoStudio. I guess I should have checked to see that what I bought from the Epson website is not equal to the product offered by Amazon, B&H Photo and other sellers, where the Photoshop Elements is listed as being part of the software. I'm not pleased about the discrepancy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner is Perfect I purchased the Epson V600 so I could scan numerous black & white & color negatives into my digital photo collection. After a quick trip through the instructions, I was quickly & easily scanning negatives onto my hard drive. Scan times depend greatly on how detailed you want the scan, but I can scan 24 negatives at a reasonable detail in about 10 minutes. The 1st part of the process gives you thumbnails that allow you to discard any photos you don't want, and then do the detailed scanning. I am scanning negatives that we taken in the early 70s and they are coming out as good as the day they were taken. This scanner is perfect for what I do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Competition for Canon CanoScan This was a purchase in March 2018 to replace a almost new Canon CanoScan 9000F MarkII that no longer offered support for Mac OS X 10.13.4 or its prior version. Nor did Canon offer any resolution or offer any help in resolving this issue. Explaining this situation to Epson, Epson was very helpful on determining what of their scanner products could replace this Canon product and would be compatible to Mac's OS X High Sierra operating system. Epson recommended their V600 Photo Scanner and the short time I have used the V600 am amazed by its simplicity of use and what it is capable of doing and so far can do the same thing that I was initially doing with the Canon 9000. The short term use of a perfectly good scanner scanner because the lack of support by a manufacturer is a real cost reckoning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson to the rescue My trusty old Epson scanner suddenly gave up the ghost after more than 7 years just as a large scanning project was to begin. My new V600 stepped right in. The new software was very similar to my previous version, so there was a minimal learning curve. The scanner lid is 90-degrees from the previious one, giving me more open desk space and bringing the onboard controls closer. The only downside is common to most every scanner of this size, a recessed glass scanning surface. Many times I get early 1900's mounted photographs that are larger than the bed size. This requires multiple scans of a slightly bent object and time spent putting the pieces together. If absolute sharpness is not necessary, the glass from my old scanner comes to the rescue. Wish there was a 4.5 rating!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable workhorse. I use my scanner just about every day with my iMac and Photoshop for documenting vintage dog show magazines and memorabilia. I even used it to reproduce color transparencies from the 1940's and 1950's that had never been seen before and I was able to share them with thousands of fanciers on Facebook. It does an amazing job and my Epson scans can be tweaked to, well, perfection. I bought my first Epson Scanner in 1994 with my first Macintosh computer. That scanner came bundled with Photoshop 3.0 and I have been a loyal customer with Apple, Adobe and Epson ever since. This scanner is superb. (BTW my scanner in 1994 cost tens times as much as the V600!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 Scanner I have now had this scanner for three full years, and can find nothing but good things to say about it. Unquestionably, it is the best scanner on the planet for this price, exceeded only by the Epson V750 at more than twice the price. As my previous scanner could not convert negative and slides, I purchased the V600 mainly to convert old black and white negatives and to create digital images of my 50 to 60 year old Kodachrome slides before they fade. I wish the plastic carriers were a bit sturdier, but can find no other fault with this unit.

BUT, occasionally I find one or two vertical lines across the resulting digital picture, on both portrait and landscape pictures. It is most noticeable on slides with a lot of blue sky, or other areas of solid color. I cannot see this on the originals with a jeweler's loop so I think it occurs in the scanner. Perhaps a light leak or reflection? Epson has replaced my original scanner but I continue to see this effect on the new one. So far my solution is to rescan at another time. Does anyone else see this and have a solution?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our Epson Perfection V600 Scanner!!! We just received this scanner today and it was an easy setup to connect to our laptop and the software installed with no problems and is user friendly. It is lightweight and does not take up a lot of space. We followed the quick easy instructions to test all of the functions, such as scanning images, negative slides and film, enlargements, etc. and are very pleased with the results. We have a 40 plus year collection of negative slides and film, which we will be scanning and will use it for large format scanning, desktop publishing, etc. The v600 scanner provides the technology for us to use in our home and is an upgrade for us, so that we don't always have to pay for a professional to do the job. We are absolutely pleased with our purchase and highly recommend this product. We give a 5 plus star rating!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from USELESS SOFTWARE I consider this as Epson selling a defective product since the software does not work with the current Apple operating system. The LEAST they could do is easily make you aware of this and their "workaround" with Image Capture. Instead you may end up like me, wasting a bunch of time reinstalling the software etc, calling Apple support, only to find out the problem isn't me or my computer at all. Even though I suppose in the future updates may fix this, (who knows?) I'm very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scanner I needed a new scanner for my slides and negatives. I am thoroughly pleased with this scanner. It does a wonderful job, especially with the ICE feature turned on. Although it does take a bit longer, the results are worth it. The only issues I had were a glitch with Windows which wouldn't recognize the scanner after using it for a few days, and I noticed a streak through the scans when I was using it, but haven't had that problem since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't made a single scan, 40 hours trying to make it work Let me save you time, where no technical trouble-shooting page on Epson's site will do so for you . . . I bought this Epson V600 last week -- and it arrived 4 days ago. My home computers are a MacBook Pro Retina running Sierra, and a Mac Mini running El Capitan. MacBook Pro laptops no longer come with disc drives. Therefore, customers like myself are forced to download the driver from Epson's site. Here's the site: http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-IE&data=ntiBNCy6p2WGlrfTPm4LnsnypDhQR26j&tc=6 Doesn't work! Trust me. No matter how many times you run it, this software install fails to run the scanner. I almost returned the scanner, and I still may do so. Luckily, the Mac Mini has a disc drive. The old-fashioned CD that came in the box actually invites a product registration. The download of the driver from Epson's own site does not. I am just finishing the registration process, and the marketing and community management geniuses invited me to post a review. Here is my review. Let's see if I can scan a single slide. I may still return this machine. It *is* cheap. And you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a winner I liked my old Epson scanner. When its time was over I bought a V600. It is fast and scans are high quality. Epson kept the same excellent scanning software. A great deal for the price. The free Photoshop elements that came with mine was a super bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed My V600 does a good job on simple tasks like scanning photo prints and magazine pics. However, I wanted it to scan artwork done on tinted charcoal paper. It does a very poor job on this. My frustration is that Epson has failed to publish any info on how to use the V600 features to make corrections, so you are left to trial and error (mostly error). My clue should have been the free copy of Photoshop Elements included. With CS6 I can correct most of the problems, but I wish Epson would see fit to share some of its info on how to use it's software effectively.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From a V500 to a V600 Photo Scanner My V500 Scanner is perfectly OK but in any event I bought the V600 anticipating the same excellent results with faster response time. It met those expectations. While I have not yet run it through all it's paces, their may be more pleasant surprises to come. There are still a few simple opportunities for improvements. The issues remain about the same when compared with the V500. They are: * Make the User Guide fully printable from the start to avoid having to separately print each section. * Increase the size of the Button Icons and also Illuminate them. * The Software Menus should be better connected and more intuitive. Those changes will make an excellent scanner outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good one, a little complicated Once hooked up and installed it works great. It is a little confusing whether you are scanning, producing a pdf or doing something else. Finally, I found that if I pressed the pdf button on the front of the scanner, the software presented me with all the options I needed. The first thing you have to find is the file location where the scanner is going to place your document, that is on another screen...once you set that up, you are good to go...clicking on the scan button makes a page, clicking on it again makes another one, and clicking finish, forms all of the scanned pages into a single pdf document. That is nice...but a little hard to find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of scanner for the money! I have scanned nearly 8,000 35mm slides and negatives with the V600 scanner. I have found it to be easy to use; I use it almost exclusively in full automatic mode. At 600ppi I get a 3600 x 2400 pixel image from a 35mm slide or negative that looks very good on a 22-inch monitor. The only complaint I have is that, after about 7,000 scans, the scanner began to put a narrow black strip on three sides of the scanned image. That doesn't detract from the usefulness of the scan, and I can crop it off with Photoshop if I choose. I have recommended the scanner to a colleague, who is using it in the office with good results. For the money I don't think anyone could expect more. Now, doggone it, I have to come up with metadata for those nearly 3,000 scans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from difficult time installing I installed the scanner into my laptop the first time I used it and had a hard time using it but it finally worked for 2 days. Then I went to use it about 2 weeks later and it continuously stated it wanted an administrator password which there wasn't any, then it stated it was not connected properly which it was and then it blamed the internet for not working which it was. I then reinstalled the file which did not work so trying again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 Photo Scanner The V600 photo scanner I purchase was to replace my old Epson Perfection 4490 photo scanner that I bought ten years ago, that just started to malfunction. I had such good experience with 4490, that I bought V600 to replace it. The designs are very similar, with suitable updates, but exactly the same size and foot print. They are so similar in size, that I slipped the old 4490 into the packaging material of V600, and sent it back to Epson for recycling (for free). I have not used the V600 much, but expect the same good expereince I had with 4490.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Copy editing As with any product purchased for a singular purpose, you want it to satisfy your needs, both ergonomically and functionally. This unit is lacking in location of on/off switch and clear precise cropping lines to satisfy my needs. Others may find this of little bother. I like to quickly crop within documents to extract only what I need. You have to go through too many steps to achieve this. Other than these small concerns, the Epson is useful and I would, grrrr, recommend it to others (after they upgrade functions).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 Scanner First I'll start this off by saying I've had four Epson inkjet printer and really enjoyed them all. But this scanner is one of the worst I've ever used. There seems to be dust on the lamp or lens. I've cleaned the glass bed over and over but the same little swirl of lint always appears in the same place. I don't know what the technical term is but there seems to be numerous pixels that always come out white. Even though the price is reasonable don't waste you money on the Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner. Sorry Epson, but I have to be honest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nearly Perfect I wanted a better scanner than my dependable older Minolta Dimage for slides and negatives, and my all-in-one printer/scanner had died just before we moved to a new home. So far, this unit has done a wonderful job, except it keeps adding a flaw on 35mm slides at one location, but the glass is clean, so I cannot figure out why. Fortunately it is at the edge of the negative holder, so if I just move the strip down a bit, it works fine. I do like the very high resolution that is available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection in Scanning I recently purchased the Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner for my home office, I currently have the V500 at work and love the LED technology that lets me scan without the warm-up wait. The quality of the scans are outstanding. My primary purpose is for scanning film, 120 mm, 35 mm negatives and many, many 35 mm slides. The holders and transparency scanning capabilities of this scanner are really as the name says "Perfection" I have very little I have to do to a slide or to scanned film to clean them up or correct color, the scanner takes care of most of this for me making the overall process of scanning years worth of slides and film to a digital format to preserve our family memories a relatively quick and easy process.

I previously used the old reliable Epson RX-700 to perform all these functions and more, but now combine the V600 with the XP-610 as a team to do the same, and very well. I can wholeheartedly recommend the V-600 as a worthwhile addition to your computer desk.

I've been too busy to try to resolve problems but hope to soon. During installation I installed all the software and then I started having problems with other programs and thru trial and error found that it was the ABBYY FineReader doing the damage. I have windows 10 and on-line search found references to that problem and trouble shooting on the computer found the program to be Microsoft incompatible. Not a single one on the function buttons on the front of the scanner is active so must send all instructions from my computer even if I only want a single quick document scan. The only better than my old Canoscan 9000 result is a sharper photo scan. I will work on it a while longer before deciding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Hardware, Weak Software I am in the process of digitizing hundreds of photos from albums, and thousands of 35 millimeter slides. The quality of the resulting images, and the ability to choose the appropriate resolution have been wonderful. My previous slide scanner passed a lamp below the slide, projecting the slide image onto the sensor array. This left shadow artifacts that blurred across the final image. The V600 scanner moves both the light source and and sensor simultaneously above and below the slide, virtually eliminating the artifacts, and producing a much sharper image. Technical support when I started out was also excellent. The glaring weakness of the V600 is the accompanying software. I am using a Macintosh desktop with a 2019 OS. My main gripe is that, when I am scanning a set of four slides at a time (the maximum), I must be present to jiggle the mouse repeatedly to make the software advance to the next step or next slide. It effectively demands your whole attention. The software is also 32-bit, and I am using the last Mac OS that will run 32-bit software.

Tried for 1 1/2 hours unloading and re-loading software with no results. Contacted Epson. Spent another hour or so unloading and re-loading software. The Tech determined it to be faulty and arranged for me to receive another scanner. It took a week for the replacement to arrive. The return process went smoothly. I plugged the replacement into my computer and it worked properly right away. I have since scanned several hundreds of photos with no problems. Epson Customer Service is the best. The only downside to this purchase was the time it took for the replacement to arrive. Will buy from Epson again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy, great quality scanning It works fast and creates excellent scans of photos. The only thing I don't like is that the Epson Scan software doesn't allow selecting 48-bit color in the home mode. This means you have to select the professional mode and do one photo at a time. Though with scanning negatives you can do 48-bit color and it automatically gets all of the photos you have in the negatives on the flatbed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full featured, professional unit Unfortunately, very few all-in-one printer-fax-scanners have the ability to scan transparencies and negatives for want of a simple light above the scanner bed. I specifically needed to scan slides so I was forced to purchase this even though I had a scanner in my HP all-in-one unit. I was (still am) not to happy about needed to find now a second space for another piece of equipment, but say-la-vee. That said, the unit is uber professional -- all the bells and whistles of a really professional piece of equipment. Scanned a variety of slide and negative types and the results was excellent. The only complaint so far is the User Interface it by no means User Friendly or intuitive and it took me awhile to figure out how to configure it to get slides to scan properly. It too almost an hour to figure out that there is a light in the hood and that the white reflector sheet must be removed before you can scan transparencies. THAT was not immediately apparent and the error message that came up in the software wasn't easily interpreted. Another downer, and I'll admit its a small thing but nontheless really annoying -- the plastic film carrier that is used to hold the slides on the scanner glass is not another thing that needs a place in my all-to cluttered desk area. It would have been so easy for Epson designers to make a slot under the scanner or on the top hood that one could hold the plastic carriers. The hood as you can see from the picture is rounded so you can't even just leave the carriers sitting on top of the unit -- they tend to slide off. So now you have these two things that need to live somewhere. Ebson, you've got this big unit -- you could easily incorporate a place in it to store the carriers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did I buy another Epson boat anchor? I purchased this scanner because I had to replace a fully functional Epson Perfection 636U that is no longer supported with current drivers by Epson. Upon setting up this unit I immediately received a notice from Apple that Epson has not yet upgraded the V600 software to run Apple 64 bit drivers and that Apple's next software update will no longer support 32 bit devices which this scanner apparently is. I will not be a happy camper if Epson has no plans to support this scanner with further driver updates for Apple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a nice job with 35mm negatives I bought my photo scanner a month or so ago. I have used it to scan negatives and 4x6 photos. Both are easy to scan and quality is very good. I would recommend you purchase additional frames for negative scanning if you have many to scan! May only concern is that there is a piece of lint under my glass. Right now it is not in a place that is a problem, but I have no idea how to get rid of it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER SCANNER This is one of the best things I’ve purchased. We have so many picture slides from the 60s, 70s and 80s that have been sitting in boxes that we wanted to digitize. I considered sending them off to a company that does this, but I’m so happy that I’m doing it myself. What fun reliving the early days of out marriage and our children as babies and youngsters. I’m sending the cutest pictures to each of my 4 children, and they’re showing these gems to their children. When they get into the computer you can crop them and straighten them, etc as needed. These are things we couldn’t do when we took pictures back then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Quality Scans and Software Than I Expected I had an older flatbed scanner and bought a 35mm scanner, but neither would do the quality I wanted. So I bought this scanner to do old family slides. I was amazed at the quality of 35mm scans. And the auto color correction software did an excellent job. Especially on old Kodachrome slides. Some from the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. I'm a retired professional color corrector and drum scanner operator and not easily impressed. This scanner will do a better job than most people need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good editing. The 'scratch & dust' editing works real good. I wish the unit would handle more then 4 slides. Unless I'm operating the unit wrong - you have to go through a 'review' step before the actual scan. It takes a while, a minute +/-, to scan a sheet. Thats a long time if you have dozens of pictures to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit slow, but excellent quality! I have slides, negatives and old pictures to scan. I already had a fast scanner, which worked well for relatively new photos in good condition, but it did not work for slides and negatives. This Epson scanner has fantastic software included, which adjusts color on old faded photos, and the slides and negatives scan easily, but slow. I don’t want to complain about the slowness too much, because that may be necessary for the great quality of the scans. Photos scan quickly, but loading the bed takes more time than a batch scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable and easy to use I bought an Epson V600 scanner last winter to digitize slides and prints. So far I've scanned about 2,000 slides and I've had no problems at all. The scanner offers several settings to vary the quality and size of the scans. It came with photo-editing software that enables me to improve the final images. Overall, I've had no problems with the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from extremely frustrating After only two scans, the Epson Scan stops working: "Cannot cummunicate with the scanner. Make sure the scanner is on, correctly setup and connected with no errors indicated. For detailed information, see Solving Problems in the User's Guide." An Epson guide suggests going to EPSON Scan Settings, but I can't because I got another error message: "Information for scanners that support EPSON Scan Settings is not installed. EPSON Scan Settings will close." I've uninstalled, installed, uninstalled, installed .... many many times, restarted the scanner and my computer many times, but it still doesn't work. I checked the online forums and realize this is a common problem for many users, I tried all the tips but none worked out. Since the problem has been there for so long, why can't Epson do something? Will have to return it. Already wasted too much time and energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 Experience Excellent piece of equipment. Most negative scans to jpg files are successful. Only a few are out of focus or too dark but I blame that mainly on the original negatives' quality. Saves me a lot of $$ since I don't first need to have the negatives professionally printed. I prefer jpgs anyway. The "out of the box" negative holders should have included a 127 type. Otherwise, I'm happy with what was provided.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works far better than I expected! I did a lot of research before purchasing the V600. Looking at many reviews, I was hesitant to purchase it due to the many less than positive reviews. But there just weren't many other options to scan slides unless I spent far more $. So, I decided I would order it and if I had issues I would return it. Long story short, I love this scanner! I installed it on a Windows 10 sure with no issues at all. The software provided has worked great and is simple to use and understand, contrasty to many reviews which called the software out of date, crude, and hard to understand. I ended up selecting 3600dpi to scan my slides, and have the ICE features enabled. The quality of the images are far and away better than the scans I did with a much more expensive Plustek scanner. Even on slides with many defects, the scanner and software correction works amazingly well. I have had to edit very few slide images. Simply put, buy one! You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surpassed my expectations! I had hundreds of pictures, 35mm, and medium format slides and negatives to scan, and needed a scanner that could do a professional job. I was concerned that the V600 would not be able to give me the final output I needed, and would need to get Epson’s model V800 or V850 to get the results I required. But being on a tight budget I couldn’t afford to step up to that level, so I bit the bullet and got the V600. The quality of the finished images are amazing, and I’m so glad I purchased this unit.

So far it is working well for my purposes. I will be using it soon for scanning old color slides and hope it works well for that as it has been for color negatives.

The main scanner bed works well. I mis-read the specs and thought it would scan 8 1/2 x 14 inches, but it does not (my fault not the scanner's). It looks so long that you might think it would but it doesn't. Anyway, all-in-all, I like it and I'm glad I purchased it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good scanner but I'll be upgrading to v800 or 850 I'm scanning my old negatives but after multiple back and forth with support I had to conclude that this was just not the one for me. Its cumbersome to scan because you have to preview before every full scan (why would they not make that a one-step??) and the front buttons only do very basic scans and believe it or not, do not do a preview so you can't use them for anything but full page scans. The software does lots of things (ICE, descreening, etc) but i found that if you do more than 1 thing, the ICE (dust/scratch) removal does not work. So I just used ICE. Its hard for me to say if the scan quality of the v650 is good. I am not sure if my expectations were too high but I was hoping to see super sharp and clear reproductions of the original photo - much like I see when I zoom in on a photo taken from a newer digital camera. But I'm not sure if it was the 20 year old negatives or if its just inherent in scanning or if it was the hardware but I definitely did not get the sort of quality I was hoping for. When zoomed out, it looks ok - but again, I was [maybe naively] hoping for me. After finding the deficiencies with this printer, I found the SilverFast software and was hopeful about using that but found out that the v600 does not support the 64bit 10.14 Mac OS and unfortunately I already upgraded. It would seem to me that Epson has put the v600 out to pasture and is just milking it. The v800/850 are supporting 10.14 Mac OS and come with the SilverFast software. I suspect the Epson software will be identical to what I got with the v650 which looks like 10 year old app that they do minimal maintenance on in order to keep selling old hardware. That's i a little bit disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrible software and lousy Epson Support The software that came with the scanner does not work correctly. When I asked support for help, their answer "The software is not supported and no drivers are not available". The file management is terrible, after a scanning session, the next time you use it, it wants assign file names at Image 1 again. Because you already have a Image 1, it doesn't save file automatically in sequence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for scanning negatives I bought the Perfection V600 for one purpose. I like to make photo books on-line of our vacations. This is easy now with digital cameras. I decided to go back and make photo books of our family vacations when our kids were small, in the 1980's and 90's. There are literally thousands of photos, and they are all on film. I needed to scan all those negatives. I learned quickly it would be most cost effective to buy a scanner, rather than pay a photo service to scan them all. After reviewing several scanners, I selected the V600. I have completed scanning the negatives of one of our trips. I am not disappointed with my choice. I played around a little with the dpi and compression ratio to get the jpegs sized the way I wanted. The results have been even better than I expected. The auto mode worked just fine. The colors and picture quality were excellent, even without using the color restoration option. It took about 1 minute 10 seconds per negative to scan, which I consider to be reasonable. I have tried the photos on my on-line photo book site. They look great. I was able to expand a single image to cover two pages of a 12 by 12 book, that would be a 12 by 24 image. I was concerned about this. I also made a photo CD to play a slideshow on our TV. All the photos looked like they were taken by a digital camera. All in all, I have been very sarisfied with the V600.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works great I bought the V600 to copy my personal collection of 35mm slides and negatives from my many years of work and travels. They represent the diary of my life and are, thus, very important to me. Digitizing them to pass on to my family (and to bore them) is very important to me and thus a machine that will fulfill this need is important. In the V600 I think that I have found what I need. The 35mm slide and negative copiers work very well. Expect the slide copier to be somewhat slow and it only takes four slides at a time. It would be useful if Epson could make a carrier that could be loaded and then placed on the stage. In that way one tray could be running while the second was being loaded. Adding and removing slides from the tray is inconvenient without some form of retaining device – you just drop them into open spaces in the tray laid on the top of the stage! If you pick the tray up – or move it, the slides fall out! The tray itself is not locked in place and moves about as you load it. If the recess on tab “C” were made deeper and a similar recessed tab were made at the top of the tray, the tray would be more stable while being loaded. The same applies for tab “A” for mounting the negative side of the tray (the same tray mounted in the opposite direction) and for the large format tray. But remember, the results are very good! The machine arrived well packed with all parts safely stowed. The instructions for setup and use are somewhat torturous and, for me, more than a little incomplete. But remember, the results are very good! The software appears to “stick” sometimes. Without warning I am occasionally required to “preview” a set of slides before I can copy them (a further time delay) generally this is not required. I may be missing the option – remember I am still learning with a limiting set of instructions, but a location to add notes on each slide would be a great advantage. The decision making process to buy the V600 – rather than the V500, was difficult. I still ponder over the differences and the apparent need (at least at the time of purchase) to buy the 600 through the internet while the 500 is freely available in stores. I think that I am missing something. But remember, I have only just started with this great machine >6,000 slides and >100 rolls on negatives to go and the results so far are very good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still has all the good stuff from earlier models This is the 3rd Epson scanner I've had and I am very pleased with it. They each have been easy to use for a variety of scanning tasks and have produced fine results. Each has been a truly improved device. I especially like having a physical on/off switch on the scanner and the error code info there a help too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic scanner My wife inherited a very large collection of family photos, slides, and negatives. Some photos are from the late 1870s, and the slides date as far back as the early 1950s. So, we bought the V600 to reproduce the materials for the family. The set up was easy. The photos and the slides that we scanned turned out great. Photoshop made it easy to correct the color and to improve the image. The scanner is every bit as good as the reviews indicated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from spectacular On a scale of 1 to 10 I rate the Epson Perfection V600 photo scanner 11. Easy to set up and use. I am in the process of copying 30 years worth of photos and 35 mm slides and am entirely pleased. Runs right out of the box and the included software makes archiving more efficient. No second guessing this purchase, one of the best I have made

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Scanner I was searching for an affordable scanner to convert old faded photos to digital. The V600 not only met my needs, it exceeded it. The scanner and it's DIGITAL ICE software not only converted the pictures the scanned pictures but also brought them back to life. The digitized versions of the faded and colored pictures looked fully restored with vibrant colors and details. I would recommend this scanner to anyone who wants to revitalize their old photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Printer Yet What doesn't it do quickly, efficiently, in "living color"? This printer is the best one I have owned. Epson produces the highest quality printers on the market, and this is certainly one of the top in their line. It is fast so that little is spent waiting for prints. Color is accurate and vivid. Detail is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am impressed Bought the V600 about 2 weeks ago. I have scanned photos and films, some of which were 110 and 126 negatives, and was very pleased with the results. Using Professional Mode I removed the red cast and restored the colors on photos and film I thought were lost forever. Some damaged photos needed some cropping to get the colors back. The only improvements I can suggest are that the negative holder be more friendly, less flimsey, and include a section to hold smaller negatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 Scanner is first class My wife has had a V600 for some time and has been using it and the ICE features with excellent results for our famil archives. We have been scanning prints, positive slides and negatives in a variety of sizes with unbelievable results. The unit is so good that I have purchased this second unit for additional scanning of a wide variety of materials. You wil not be sorry with this unit. The only problem is that it takes a while to conduct the scans, so do not go into this in a hurry up state. Do not look for me on social networks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice but not as user friendly as I had hoped Once you figure out how to use it the quality is pretty good. I've had this for a month now and I still can't seem to see the dramatic changes with the dust removal and ICE program options..they advertise these as something great, but I've yet to see it and or figure out how to get the big changes they say.. the basic scan, with correct settings, seems to look great by itself..I"m happy with it and glad I purchased it.. I just hope get to see the ICE program work like they advertise some day.. It was not as user friendly as I had hoped so this is also why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical great Epson product Fabulous scanner ! I scan about 300 images a week and have been able to tweek the software to where they scan in almost perfectly. I have not used the 35mm portion yet but expect the same results. Machine has performed flawlessly. I would like to see the "saved" sequence numbers to go to 4 or even 5 digits so I don't get repeating image numbers after 999 scans. I would love one just like it in a 12x15 inch format that is affordable ! It is such a fine machine I expect Epson to quit making it soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend this scanner! After reading LOTS of reviews, and comparing features, I decided to go for the V600. I'm already impressed by the results in just scanning some photos, but the real area this is going to shine, is when I take on the project of converting my father's slide picture collection,and putting it all to digital.I can just see his face when he gets to view a lifetime of his photography achievements, in the digital format on DVD.It will be a great undertaking, and that's the biggest reason I chose the V600, as well as the great price.BTW...am also upgrading my printer to the Epson Artisan 710, but I'll comment on that when it comes this week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liking it so far! Although I've had for over a month, just started using the scanner two weeks ago. I am VERY pleased with all the options and the ease of use! In addition, I had to do some negatives and could not believe how well they came out! I have a lot (A LOT) to scan in as I just cleaned out my father's house and this has already been a blessing. The fact that I can put books on the scanner truly helps. I have already recommended this to several friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Scanner I bought this scanner to convert a number of old family photos to .jpg files. I have had a good experience with Epson ink-jet printers, but had not tried any of their scanners before. I am using it with an iMac running Mountain Lion. I had no trouble setting it up and getting it running. It literally took about five minutes. It produces beautiful scans with rich colors easily in "Auto" mode. In "Home" mode there are additional features. One that I especially wanted to use is the digital ICE technology for cleaning up dust and scratches. Previously I have done this manually using photoshop, and that is tedious. Digital ICE does it all automatically at the cost of a somewhat longer scan time and produces very nice results. I feel that I have barely scratched the surface regarding what this scanner can do, but would highly recommend it to anyone needing a high-performance photo scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the V600 This scanner is amazing to me. Definitely picks up the photos wherever you set them and makes great scanned copies in a very reasonable timeframe. I have used it for slides also and it is incredible. I have a Mac, and was stymied for a minute with the discs (which the Mac would not read), but after I realized I had to download the software from the Epson site via the internet, all was well. the scanner is easy to use, pretty much does it all for you so it requires very little instruction. The one over-view sheet is sufficient. Thanks for this great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice So after much research I settled on the V600. I'm glad I did. With nothing to compare it to I'll just say that it works very well. The results I get a very satisfactory. It's faster than I had anticipated too. The software is working for me as well though I don't use any of the correction features besides Digital Ice and I only use that for film other than Kodachrome...they don't get along. A few things that need improvement: Setting up to scan and using the software to full advantage took a while to figure out the first day. I spent about an hour getting everything right. But once that was done it was smooth sailing. Also, it's hard getting the slides out of the holder. Maybe my fingers are to big or my nails not long enough but they are a bugger to lift. I've resorted to a piece of masking tape to pull them out by the mounts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great scanner! I really love this scanner. It is quiet and fast and does a great job scanning in photos and various paper documents and such. I especially like the ability, using the software included, to scan multiple pages into a single PDF document. It saves alot of space over the way I used to do it when I scanned everything in as a JPEG and had to save Page 1, Page 2 etc. for multi-page documents. It's also designed for easily scanning from books. I almost bought Canon instead but they were out of stock in most places and high-priced otherwise. I'm glad because this is probably a much better deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson for slides While I've only had the scanner in use for a day or so it has performed well. The slides that I have scanned look great and with proper cleaning of the slides prior it reduces any post-editing. I am still learning the "best" ways to scan as there are a number of settings that can be adjusted in the professional mode. I have yet to do film, and will do both colour and b&w. I do find the setting up of the slides a bit tedious, placing the holders and positioning the slides in it. I also (in this case) would have preferred a paper manual to refer to. Where I would typically not mind an electronic version in this case I'd like to sit down and read the manual to get the most info on how to scan properly and most effectively. Bottom line I'm very happy with the scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works As Advertised The Epson V600 Photo Scanner works as advertised. Quick set-up and copying photos with-in 30 minutes. I bought this for the multiple photo scan into individual files feature. I had this with an older All-In-One printer and found out that is a rarity in All-In-Ones. The only negative is the location of the Start Buttons on the front of the device. They are located directly under the area where you open the lid. I use the software on my computer to control the device, but many times, when opening the lid to clear the photos, it is too easy to touch the buttons and start another unwanted command. Other than that, this is an awesome device and so far I am impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy improvements could be made. The Epson Perfection V600 is a great scanner. It does a beautiful job and is fast. My complaint is with the Epson scanner software. If I am doing a large project, it is extremely annoying to have to reopen the Epson scanner software every time you make a scan. I have to chase down the icon to open for every new picture scan. This is a waist of time. Also, with multiple pictures in the scanner, it usually fails to recognize pictures individually. This makes it necessary to handle the picture with software one more time to crop and cut pictures apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOT WHAT I EXPECTED I have had and used several printers and scanners but I got this one for the feature to copy negatives but it is a lot harder to use and so far I have been using my old scanners because they are straight forward. Maybe some day but I don't have time and there is not a lot of help with it. I had bought a cheap one to do negatives and I have had more use from it than the more expensive Epson one, I might as well have left it in the box. Forget it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 - Great Scanner My old Epson Perfection 3170 scanner would not work with Lion. (I'm using version 10.7.3) I bit the bullet and got the V600. It is working great. I did follow the instructions to download the latest software and install that instead of the software on the disc. All functions seem to work - so far I've done color and B&W scans and color slides. It works from Epson Scan, from mounting thru the scan section in System Prefs and from programs such as Photoshop CS5 and Graphic Converter. It will not work from Photoshop Elements 10. I'm very happy with the speed of the scans. I do not understand some reviewers complaints regarding the slide holder - it worked fine for me and does not seem all that fragile. Only complaint - the extra software (notably the OCR software) is only for Windows. How about a little more Mac support!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 Excellent Scanner Bought the Perfection V600 from Micro Center to replace a HP ScanJet 7400c that did not have updated drivers for Windows 7. The Epson scanner is hands down a better scanner than the HP it replaced. It is faster, quieter, has better software included and the lid stays open in two different positions which makes swapping pages much easier. I also have the Epson GT-S50 scanner which I use for high volume scanning so I did not need an ADF with the V600. Epson's software suite recognizes both scanner and prompts for which one to use each time I start the Epson Scan application. Mostly used for scanning documents to PDF and also some picture scanning to JPG. Overall very satisfied with the V600 and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a flatbed scanner that works well with Windows 7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch scanner Stunning restoration of old photos and slides are the keys to a professional grade scanner. The V600 has them. If you do photo editing, you start with pristine archiving of the original. All-in-one printer/fax/scanners do not hold a candle to the scanning capabilities of a dedicated scanner. 24-bit color restoration, 9600 dpi, digital ICE technology, and four modes (Home, Office, Professional, and Full Auto) underscore the flexibility and power of the V600 scanner. On the negative side (that's right, I forgot, it also scans negative film and slides) there are a few things I'd like improved. First, it needs true 64-bit drivers and more compatibility with Windows 7. Also, do not connect this to a USB hub. Windows will have a hard time communicating with it. Connect directly to USB port on motherboard. The unit is very large, but I guess that's good for legal document scans. Overall, excellent scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Resolution Be careful if buying the V600. You may not be getting what you think. The specs indicate the device is capable of 6400x9600 dpi. However when I tried to scan a 5 x 7 photo at 4800 dpi, I discovered there is an unpublished scan size limitation of 21000 x 30000 pixels. Hence, scanning at 4800 dpi resulted in an error. The only way to achieve high resolution is with small originals ( 1 in ). Epson tech support attributed the limitation to the Epson Scan software. If you need small scan output, then the unit should be ok. I returned the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Installation, ease of use and most importantly quality of images, the V600 excels in all these areas. I have not scanned slides yet but I expect that to go well.

The scanner was so easy to install and I began using it right away, it was that easy!! I used the software that came with it and was able to tweak the photos and had them looking beautiful in no time. I plan on installing Photoshop also, but I know there's a learning curve with it so I started with the Epson software and had really good results. Our son-in-law has the V700 and loves it, but we have a more limited budget and are perfectly happy with the V600.

Overall I found the v600 a excellent scanner, specifics... the good--- 1. no problems what came in the box 2. installation was smooth no problems with my win7 64 bit system ... 3. scanning of slides and negatives was overall good there was slide issue but talk about that further down .. automatic frame detection work fine but a issue... in some cases.. 4. scanning pictures no problems and quality is good .. automatic image detection work fine 5. fast very satisfied with scanning speed... even on hi dpi setings... 6. the abbyy ocr program that came with it appears to work fine.... no problems working with the main epson program.. 7. epson scanning software looks good although i had to look around a little bit to figure how to called things up.. i guess i should have read the manual.. the poor-- 1. the only paper you get is the installation sheet which is very simple but sufficient.. but... if you have a problem installing.. have the epson number standing by... note: you only get access to the manual once the software is installed... 2. there still appear to have a frame detecting issue (v300 and v500 same issue) . there 2 type of 35 mm film , 135 film and 126 35 mm film... the difference lies in the frame size...!! 126 is a smaller frame size and the automatic frame detection setup for 135mm.. end result with with 126 negatives you may end up creeping basically parts of 2 images in the same frame, you 'll have to go back manually adjust the frame outline... epson teck may or may not know about this issue..oh this is a common issue with all film scanners that i am aware of... 3. thought the integration of the abbyy ocr with the epson software was a little clunky ... think it could be more seemless..... but overall satisfactory... still looking at the other features of the epson but i would recommend this product to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast & Efficient I was replacing an Epson 4180 that had a broken drive cable and upgraded to an Epson V600 that would work with my newer computer running Windows 7 64 bit OS. I have a deadline for a major project, so I was extremely grateful when the scanner arrived at the door just three days after ordering it - and I used regular shipping. It only took a few minutes to load the software, hook up the scanner and begin processing pictures. I was able to process over a hundred pictures that afternoon using the automatic feature - which is fully automatic. I just placed two to three pictures on the flat bed, clicked the appropriate buttons and it did the rest without having to do anything else. I am already familiar with the Epson Perfection interface from the previous scanner and look forward to using the advanced features for other projects in the future. This has been a very wise purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I received the scanner about 2 days ago and since then Ihave scanned about 30 pictures. Some pictures being a few years old and some being 60 to 70 years old. After comparing the scanned images to the orignals I've came to the conclusion that buying the Epson scanner was a great idea. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because the Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 software that came with the scanner is not compatible to Windows 7 which is what is running on the laptop I am using to store the images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Setup & Easy to Use The scanner was easy to setup taking only 10 minutes, including loading the software. I scanned several old pictures at 600 dpi and they scanned very quickly compared to my older all-in-one printer, scan, fax & copy. I have not used all of the features on the scanner yet, but scanning old pictures at 600 dpi using unsharp mask and color correction was quick and easy. Included in the box was Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0. Even though Elements 10.0 is out now, when I ordered I was expecting to receive the older 6.0 as shown in the ordering literature, so getting 9.0 was an added benefit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome! I can't say enough good things about this scanner. It is super easy to use, fast, and the results are amazing. I had it scan an old photo of my Mom when she was 20. The photo was dark and small. Imagine my surprise when I saw my Dad sitting on the chair next to my Mom in the scanned photo. The color restoration, and photo enhancement lightened the photo so both people could be seen! I have scanned slides, and film, as well as old photos. I've even made pdf files. I couldn't be happier. This suits all my needs and is worth every penny I spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 Scanner This is the best scanner I have ever owned. It is easy to use, minimal instruction needed, and fast. We use this for copying old family photographs with our genealogy research. It restores color, removes dust, and provides great copies for touch-ups. The slide copier works flawlessly. I highly recommend this product.

I have scanned many documents and old photos and used the ice technology to make very good quality prints. I have printed 8x10's from old slides and photo's and am amazed at how well they came out. I would recommend the Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed! I am very disappointed with my scanner! This is a replacement for one I bought new that quit within a month and even your tech department couldn't get it to work. Then they sent this refurbished machine as a replacement. It worked for a short while and I worked with it and finally was able to get it to work with other programs (I.e. Word), but It will still not work with its own program. I have download the program several times, but never has helped. I have an Epson color printer that I love, but have decided I won't buy another Epson product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson scanner I purchased this scanner for the sole purpose of scanning pictures my sister had as all my family pictures were stolen from a storage unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 The scanner itself is made well and works great, howvever the "DIGTAL ICE" software function for slides has a lot to be desired. It causes most sildes with dark lines and darker lighting to become deformed. At one point it caused the software not to even reconize the scanner. Had to restart the program for the scanner to function again. Scan slides without the "DIGTAL ICE" function and have had no problems at this point. Have not tryed it with photos yet. The slide tray could have a better way of getting the slide out of the tray. If you dont have good finger nails you can not get them back out of the tray with out removing the tray and removing the slides from the glass. There is a notch to recover the slides on the tray but it is of little use. Seems there could be a tray cover like the film stips have so you could load and remove the slide easyer. In short the "DIGTAL ICE" is not as that great as you are lead to belive. There is room for improvement on the slide trays however the scanner dose a great job itself and if you can get around the little problems it is a great scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from scanning with 600 Works great - easy to use. I think the price was good. The only problem I have is scanning mounted 2 1/4 (6X6) slides. The frame is designed for film and the part that holds the film down does not seem to be removable from the frame.. I can work around it but it is a slight problem. I'm having fun scanning some very old slides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from v600 scanner First the only negative point which does not affect my rating is it would be nice if it worked on a network. I like that it is smart enough to scan several pictures at a time and record them into separate files.Also it can tell the difference between a black and white and a colour photo. I have not as yet tried to copy a negative but if it looks the same as a photo it will great. Andy

I've been wanting to scan my old photos but my all-in-one was just too slow and only did one photo at a time. This scans up to 5 photos at a time and is fast. It scans fast and is immediately ready for the next scan. No warming up. You do have to make sure they are separated well or it will scan them as one. it scans fast and has good quality. You can also manually pick how you want to the photo to be fixed as well. I love it and would recommed it.

It blew me away at how well it scans film and slides. It takes a few seconds to load the film and slides into the holder, but it works great. This saved me time and money to scan some old negatives and slides I wanted to digitize. Updating the software driver was a breeze. I highly recommend this scanner. If you have a lot of documents to scan, then buy a scanner with a document feeder instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 - a Great Scanner I just finished scanning thousands of slides - some were 40+ years old. It restored the color on most of them and got rid of dust motes with the Digital Ice Feature. Before using this scanner the slides had so many black dots from dust that I spent hours removing them one at a time with an editing program. While a few dust motes remained on some of the older slides, it did get rid of most of them and saved a lot of time. The only negative I found with the scanner was that, it occasionally would develop a memory glitch and the slides would scan with a black border. I would have to do them over. I finally found it quicker to preview the slides before scanning and make the necessary corrections. All in all, I am very pleased with this scanner and with the results. I have yet to try it with photos or negatives, but I feel sure it will perform with equally good results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hardware, but... My initial thoughts after only a few hours of use is that the scanner itself is top-notch. My biggest problem has been with the Photoshop Elements 9 software that came with the scanner and is needed if you want to do any kind of modification to the scans for slides/photos. Because the software comes on CD I am having a difficult time getting it to the laptop the scanner is connected to. The laptop has no cd/dvd drive so I am trying to copy the software from another computers' dvd drive to the laptop over the network. No luck yet. So initially, I give the overall package (scanner and software) only 4 stars.

But from the scans I have done using the reflective mode and the slide scanning mode I find the results excellent and the scanner easy to use. I have had previous Epson scanners so found the software easy to learn and use. I use the Professional Mode because that gives me the most control. The scanner seems fast and the colors are accurate. I definitely recommend this scanner for someone looking for a fine print/slide/negative scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I was familiar with Epson flatbed scanners from using them at the newspaper I work at, so I kind of knew what to expect. This is a newer version than any we have at work, though, and it is better than what I've used before. I've used it thus far to scan a couple hundred old family photos for a digital projected image show at the funeral of a close relative. Everyone was in awe of the great, sharp, and colorful images of 50-year-old photos. I use it with a MacBook Pro equipped with Photoshop. Also have scanned dozens Kodachrome slides. It did a great job. Use of the slide holder made the effort easy. I anticipate using it in this capacity hundreds of more times as I develop digital projection shows for groups in my hobby from among the thousands of slides I have taken in the past 22 years.

Also the user's guide is only available in .html format with no PDF user's guide available. At least EPSON could have a PDF guide available for downloading. Finally, EPSON could offer more frequent updates of the included software on its website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Epson Photo Scanner I've been using an Epson Photo Scanner for many years with no issues and great products. But my scanner finally died some months ago. I reviewed many scanners and many brands, read what lots of people had to say about their scanners. I bought another Epson Perfection Photo Scanner (V600) without hesitation! I love this scanner as much as my old one. I scan, copy, create pdf files and all without a hitch. I've used my scanner to scan old photos, damaged photos, 35 mm slides, and old (pre 50s) negatives all with great success. The old, large, odd-sized negatives had to be trimmed down just a bit to fit into the negatives holder but the results were fine. I wouldn't have a different scanner. I didn't buy the V700 because I didn't want to pay quite as much for that one, though it may have some features the V600 doesn't but I can't imagine it works any more satisfactorily than my V600. Keep up your good products, Epson!

Can see me using it for the conversion to digital files of my extensive slide collection. Will also be able to scan most of my smaller format paintings before sending them away to galleries. Did lose sleep over the fact that because no instruction manuel was provided had to fly by the seat of my pants in trying to determine how to, not so much scan but how to, move my scanned files to I-photos. In the end I accidently locked out my entire 8000 images in the I-photo file and had to take my computer to a shop to reset everything. Nerve racking and costly. Great product but in need of a user friendly manuel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner was purchased for both photos and to capture images of my artwork. The scanner is large enough and flexible for use with flat photos and drawings, books and some 3 dimensional objects without any problems. It's compact (22"x11"x4" outside dimensions), easy to use and gives me fine, dense images. Scanning area is 9"x12" and sends a nice crisp image to my computer. Only one drawback: directions for use are quite abbreviated. But it turns out to be pretty straightforward in use. I'm still happily discovering all it can do. Nice unit, and Just Right for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Scanner After a few weeks of online comparison I settled on this little beauty. At the highest Resolution it takes a few minuits to scan 1 picture but at 600 dpi you can get a photo scan in under 15 seconds. Quality is superb, the included software is good for a beginner but combined with something more advance (in my case Corel Photo-paint) you can really bring pictures to life and reveal dazzling detail and color. I use it for desktop publishing and have absolutely no complaints. Note there IS an ON/OFF switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 Photo Scanner Just set it up today, will try to come back in a few months - after the hundreds of pictures & documents needing to be scanned are completed - to give a more thorough review. For now, the unit is extremely easy to set up and get started. I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone for ease of use and functionality. I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 for two reasons: 1. It should have been made to allow scanning of legal, or longer, sized documents instead of a max of only 8.5x11 without having to purchase an automatic document feeder. (perhaps it does, but haven't found how yet...) 2. Also, because of the difficulty I initially had scanning a document. I ended up using the picture type instead of text/line art type as it wouldn't allow me to scan the item in PDF. It's very possibly due to my inexperience and will report back later to let you know. The photos scanned came out great, as did a newspaper article with color pictures and a document - once the PDF issue was resolved. Was able to use the ICE technology on the pictures (one color, one sepia tone) to eliminate dust that really wasn't all that visible initially, rotate and save the clipping, see the document in color, greyscale and B&W to compare the clarity of each - the preview is a great feature and rotation of the picture to right side up before scanning is available. At this point, I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from flaw Machine really does a great job and copies slides and pictures. However, a couple of times the machine would only copy two of the slides in the holder and when copying pictures it would revert back to the section that was only copying two of the slides. Hope it doesn't happen again. It has happened twice but then seemed to correct itself.

I also have NX 415 and my wife uses the NX 430 wireless for her laptop All these are excellent products and I have recomended and will continue to them. I bought the v600 scanner because I wanted to upgrade my scanner and as usual it is great!! I haven't used it that much yet but so far so good. I am an amateur photographer and the photos and slides have come out perfect. I especially like that I can scan wide format negatives which the old scanner ( pserfection 4490 ) could not do. I 've scanned 3D objects and the DOF was amazing. Set up was a snap. my only suggestion would be to go back to adding a printed user manual. As good as your product is it will be worth it fore someone to pay a little extra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WARNING - not real 64 bit driver I just found out that Epson's idea of Win7 64-bit support is to install a 32 bit driver that works with a 64 bit OS. So forget any processing benefit from your 64-bit OS and 64-bit scanning software. Considering it is also only USB 2.0 I actually regret buying the thing. I know - my bad for believing the 64 bit support was native.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Scanner, software so so I just set up my scanner. I did learn the hard way that it is much better to just scan the photos and do any adjustments, adding sharpening filters, color corrections, and especially not to use the dust removal tool at any setting. Results are much better obtained by opening a scan in Photoshop and adjusting from there. The scanner does work very nicely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TAKE YOUR TIME I admit I am a computer nerd. Every step must be spelled out or I get "lost". The Epson v600 is a great unit. However, absent specific detailed instruction, one is left to blunder along until you have found your way. I recommend new users spend time opening each and every one of the steps, investigate each any every pull down menu, take notes on there use and function i.e write yourr own instruction book. But once you get the hang of it the unit will perform up to or beyond .to your expectations

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Researched for some time for a reasonably priced scanner for 35mm slides. Color and definition are important for medical slides converted for digital projection. I am very impressed with quality of digitized slides so far. I'm not a computer wiz and have no experience with Photoshop Elements. There were no instructions regarding the use of Photoshop but I assume the information is on the disc. The only downside may be the time necessary if you have many slides to digitize.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner This was my first purchase of a scanner. I bought the Epson after reading many reviews. Overall I'd rate it average. I figure the Epson is about on par with other scanners in its price range, so I didn't ask for a refund. The scanner does a good job with photographs ... on its own terms. If one tries to tweak the results of its scans, it may be frustrating. There are various quality levels one may strive for concerning a particular picture/digital file, but too often it is the scanner that will determine what settings are best. With that in mind, any attempt to improve the quality is frequently met with bad outcomes: smeared areas on the photo. The "Perfection" is not that: it is average. Don't ask too much of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mostly positive, some "needs work" I bought this scanner to convert the best shots of fifty plus years of photography to begin to enjoy them again. I shot mostly 35mm and 6x6, b&w, color and chrome. I am quite impressed with the image quality. A 35mm ektachrome slide will convert to a 40mp file. The supplied scanning software is straightforward and easy to use. On the downside, the documentation is light and I am quite disappointed that the Photoshop Elements included is version 9, version 10 has been out for quite some time and is a better fit for Mac users. I did not try the other 3rd party software supplied as I am on Lion and didn't feel like experimenting until I have a need.

I can not believe how well it takes yellow pictures and restores them to almost original condition. Same with black and white negatives, the results are xlent .. I think they could have designed this template for the negatives a little better. Its really flimsy, the35mm negatives are hard to keep centered, and the fixture does not hold them tight enough to make them lay flat against the scanner. I bought this mainly to restore negatives and am a little disappointed ..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice scanner, software could be improved Have been using the scanner for 18 months with excellent results. My main use is for scanning film in 120 and 35mm, both color and B&W. The settings allow for good configuration tuning. My only complaint is that the software is a bit primitive. For instance, it does not allow auto thumbnail recognition in 35mm, except for standard full frame (24 x 36mm). I have to scan a lot of panoramic and half frame negative strips in 35mm; it is a pain to select manually each frame. This is quite surprising since in 120 all the sizes may be configured without any problem - and it works wonderfully. You may need to look for third-party software!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good scanner I received my new Epson Perfection V600 Photo scanner Friday, and have been using it over the weekend. For about five years, I've been using an Epson Perfection 3170 photo scanner, and have found that the V600 has a very similar interface but with more robust capabilities than my previous scanner. I'm quite pleased that the V600 has such high resolution capability, as I'm mainly scanning color negatives at present. I did have a few problems with the scanner locking up on me, and am not sure quite yet why that was, but as I use it more and get more familiar with it, I'm enjoying it more. I'm very pleased about what I got for what I paid. Good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from null My main purpose for this scanner was to archive family photos that have been stored in various boxes since the 30's. It's a wonder that they have survived this long and need to be digitally archived before they are gone forever. What's great about this scanner is that I can load up as many photos as I can fit on the scanner glass and it automatically differentiates between each one, numbers them, allows you to auto rotate before scanning and auto-numbers the filename outputs. Then it systematically scans through each photo as if they were put on the glass at different times. This is a HUGE time saver. The speed of the scanner is faster than other/older scanners I have owned - but as with all scanners - the speed of the scan is proportional to the resolution of the scan. The higher the resolution - the slower the scan. The scanner has several extra scan modes other than just automatic and numerous settings in each mode which I am still experimenting with. It also has four customizable buttons on the front to instantly scan, copy, scan-to-email and create PDFs. And, with the included Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software, I have been able to easily convert scanned documents into editable text. I have used the negative and slide holders and found that they are relatively easy to use. The slide holder works fine but the negative holder does not clip together as tightly as I would like when scanning negatives. Older negatives tend to curl a bit and I think the holders would work a little better if they had register pins which would help hold the width of the negative and thus flatten it when the holder is snapped together. Otherwise, the scanner does a great job of scanning multiple negatives and allowing you to make numerous different adjustments to each one before scanning so that you can obtain that perfect scan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me -- so far. Based on the reviews by "Magazine Guy" and "DR McKenzie," I went straight to "Professional Mode" and started working on 50 year old color slides. Just playing with the controls in that mode, I am finding out how to do amazing things. The pictures look better than when the slides were new. I haven't tried black and white, yet but I am assuming it will be as good. I am wondering if I can use it for some "off spec" operations, like dealing with old 110 film, and a few other odd sizes. I hope so, and if I can, I will be truly astounded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade Scanner I spent quite a bit of time looking at scanners, and went with the Epson V600 because my previous scanner is an Epson and there was almost no learning curve. (My old scanner doesn't work with Windows 7.) Epson has altered the software interface slightly and removed the SmartPanel, but I didn't have any trouble learning the new software. I can't say enough about the amazing Digital ICE software. I tried it on some old photos and the results were amazing. Scratches, folds, and dust were gone. The included PhotoShop Elements is also a great help. I highly recommend the V600.

Pro... easy, fast and good quality photos Con.. applying color enhancement or ICE for photo repair does not always work and can even add artifacts to the photo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor Instructions I read lots of reviews for this product before purchasing, so I thought it would be relatively easy to use. Actually, connecting it and pluggin it in were OK. The instructions for installation of program did not at all represent what happened on screen. It was just by luck that I figured out how to download the program. Then, the download from the disk didn't work very well. The program quit unexpectedly, so I had to start over. The instruction also said just put on a picture and scan. Wrong! The basic scan gave a very low-res photo, hardly useable for printing. Also the format in which it appeared on my computer was not useable in iPhoto. Again, just by chance, I figured out how to get the resolution higher and put it in a format that I could use in iPhoto. It took lots of steps, and I have been working on this for nearly 2 hours, and I still need to read tons more in the guide. Now, the guide has link upon link upon link, so it is nearly impossible to find an appropriate starting point. It's very confusing. Yikes! This scanner may end up working just wonderfully, but the "easy set up" is anything but easy and is not accurate enough to make this easy to use. I didn't want to recommend or not recommend, but this site required a choice. I said "no" because of the confusing instructions. One other frustration is that I was scanning a black and white photo. If I clicked that, it came out really burned. I then labeled it as "color," and it worked. Why??? Finally, in the package, a DVD called "Adobe Photoshop Elements 10" was included, but there was not one word about its use on the instructions for setting it up. How would an inexperienced person understand if that disc was necessary for the basic use of this equipment.?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 Photo Scanner The overall scanner is Excellent. It's fast and the quality is great. The only warning I would give is to not rely on the image correction software to color correct or fix all scratches. The software is limited and you can do better in photoshop. The color correct software can overcompensate some pictures and the scratch removal will not eliminate all scratches. As long as you realize that your OK. I do 2 scans, one with color correct and one without, I pick the best scan and bring it into Photoshop to finalize.

Scan Quality: From my minimum usage and experience, scan quality seems to be as advertised - so far so good. I've been using the Fully Auto mode which makes it "dead easy" for anyone. I haven't tried the other features like dust removal or ICE yet... but have set the auto mode and we'll see. Thanks for a great product and hope you'll listen (w/r to the holder) and make it better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Price and Functionality I purchased this scanner because I have a large inventory of negatives and I still shoot film on my Rollei TLR. I was spending a fortune getting small scans done just so I could see what I have and work with it before deciding whether to get a larger scan done. I am very pleased with the scanner's performance for this particular purpose. I was very nervous after my first scan of a 120 neg because it looked VERY soft. I did some research on what settings other users were employing during 120 scans and once I made those changes I got a much better result. The scanner excels at scanning prints and does a great job on 35mm even on very large scans. The medium format scanning is the only thing it falls a little short on but it definitely does what I bought it to do- make 120 neg scans that I can use to make editing decisions and on the web.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection The V600 was very easy to install and to use it is easier. For PDFs one button . Scanned old slides with color shifts and it made good copies even with por slides. The film carrier keeps the negative flat and makes great copies using Digital Ice. Some of the negatives were over twenty years old and came out great. I highly recommend the V600 for the serious hobbist and for most full time photographers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 Photo Scanner The Epson V600 Photo Scanner does an excellent job. I have scanned color photos and the color reproduction is very good. The reason that I bought the scanner is mainly for scanning slides, as that is what I have shot in the past. I previously had a CanoScan FS272OU Film Scanner, and while it was satisfactory, it did not have an updated driver for Vista, and now I have Windows 7. The Epson scanner is great for slides. And, with Photoshop Elements 9, which comes with the scanner, you can do whatever touch up is needed. I have had a few slides scanned commercially in the past, with supposedly the best scanner available, and I believe the Epson scanner does as good a job. Also, the few slides that I had scanned commercially cost me more than the cost of the Epson scanner. So, it is a good buy. The scanner is well built, and controls are well located. It was easy to install and the instructions for doing so well written. The instructions for scanning slides were easy to follow. I have only a couple of minor complaints. The tab "C" on the film holder could be a little longer and the indentation on the scanner that it fits into a little deeper so that the film holder is better connected to the scanner, but as is works OK. The other is the location of the On/Off button. Its location at the rear of the scanner is difficult to reach in my environment for the scanner. I would recommend the scanner to any photographer.

The tips from other reviews about taping down the slide holder are right on.I used blue painters tape so it would come off easily. Good job Epson great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted with hardware I just replaced my 10 year old Epson scanner for a V600 photo and am amazed at the drastic improvement on all levels. I suppose 10 years is antique in digital time, but I was very happy with my first scanner. This does so much more and has so many more options I'm rescanning most of what I already had on file. I'm scanning slides and so far black and white film, and am very happy with the results. My only problem is with the scanning software that comes with the scanner. I use professional mode and have not been able to save my settings. Even working from the original preview scan, I have to reset everything each time. This is frustrating and time consuming. Of course there is other software available, but it would be nice if Epson's didn't do this as it's quite satisfactory in results. I gave the unit a 4 star instead of 5 due to the software difficultes and also I would like to see the manual in downloadable pdf format.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well The machine does all that was asked of it, but with all of the whistles and bells operational, it is painfully slow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from null I needed to scan and copy over 2000 slides. Was torn between the Epson V600 and another competing brand. Decided on the Epson and I am generally very pleased. Easy to set up and to manage. Made the mistake with the first few hundred slides to use color correction, which makes the copies slightly too purple. So, do not use color correction. Without it, the color quality is excellent. Was disappointed with the dust removal function. Still had to manually remove the dust on many slides. Because this became time consuming, I also purchased the competing product. In this scanner the dust removal was just as poor and the copies were too purple. I continued to use the Epson and have finally completed the project. Now onto copying hundreds of photographs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson v600 Scanner I purchased this scanner so I could scan some pictures from my old photo albums that are 57 years old. I scanned pages that had 6+ pictures on each page. The scanner worked perfectly. When I put a page with 6 old black and white photos it detected and scanned each photo separate from all of them. This was a time saver because I do not have to use another program to crop and save each picture. I did have some of the pages where it would not separate the pages but this is not a big problem for me. This scanner is worth every penny I paid for it. If you want an excellent scanner at a good price this is the one for you. The only negative is it will not separate photos of 7 and more especially if they are not all the same size. It need separation to scan individual pictures. Bennie

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 A nicely designed scanner. This unit does a great job of scanning films of different formats, color or B&W. It has produced good reproductions from all my negatives dating back to circa 1949, even the reproduction of photographs. It has a lid hinge holding stop at approx. 45 degrees, which allows you to stay seated without getting up to lift the lid to a full open position. I highly recommend this scanner, which is at an unbelievable price for it's material quality, and reproduction quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice & affordable Scanner The V600 is affordable, small in size, but with a larger transparency unit as usual. Scanning is really quick without any warmup phase due to its LED light source. I tested the device scanning different formats. The included film holders are very handy therefore. Hardware -> fine. Using Epson's scanning software I was quite confident with slide scanning, print scanning and with scanning b/w negatives. But I couldn't manage to scan color negatives in a satisfying and predictable way. The Epson Scan software is in general just barely functional. I'm using third-party scanner software SilverFast and with its NegaFix (just one of many, many useful features) the color neg problem is solved. I do recommend the V600, but run it with SilverFast for unveiling the real potential of this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my computer setup Great machine and simple to use. The simple "scan" button is wonderful. But it's necessary to get very familiar with the User's Guide and getting to know where the info is located in it. For instance, it took some time to learn how to change resolution when scanning 35mm slides, but once I did it at 1200 dpi, Wow. Removing the slides from the document table is somewhat clumsy, but this is greatly outweighed by the versatility for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slow scans, Faster scans and better images Would I buy this scanner again? Yes but turned out not to be what I expected. When I first used it the scans were very slow on 6x6 B&W negatives. Yes I was running 4800 dpi and making some 100mb files but 12 minutes a scan was a bit much. I calculated the data transfer rate at 1.1 meg bits a second which is far short of the 12 to 480 that the USB should be able to provide. My first attempt to resolve the problem was moving from an old G4 Power PC MAC to a newer Intel Mac that hasn't been put into service because of application issues. This changed improved scanning speeds by about 4 times bringing scans down to around 3 minutes. It appears the scanner moves much of the image processing into the PC. This isn't a bad thing because it allows upgrades to the PC to improve scanner operation. It also allows updates to Epson Scan to improve scanning without loading new software into the scanner. The bad part is Epson scan could be written better because it was using no where near 100% of the processor while it was doing the slow scans. Note I am a hardware programmer so I understand the flaw. Next issue is the fact this is a 3200x3200dpi scanner if you want clean scans. Above this number interpolation takes place to create the final image so you are not seeing what was scanned but are instead seeing what the software thinks the image looks like. The magic numbers that provide true images in dpi are 3200,1600,800,640,400,320,200,160,128,100. These are the numbers that divide evenly into both 6400 and 9600. They will also result in faster scans because they require no interpolation to produce the final image. Is this a problem? No because at 3200 I was able to see the grain in some of the B&W negatives. A scan of a 35mm film would still produce a 16x20 print which is pushing it for a 35mm negative. You should only use the higher scan settings for very special projects and if you are archiving, stick with the magic numbers. As for Digital Ice. I have not played with the feature much but the one word I have for it is WOW. I scanned a poorly stored color negative and it removed all but a few spots of damage. Don't use this feature unless you need it but I wouldn't want to buy a scanner without it. Note to Epson. Feel free to comment below this point if I got something wrong. I would love to be able to push the feature of this scanner more but as I see it, these are the limits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 Film Scanner Review It worked right out of the box. I probably scanned 600 35mm slides in the first few days. At one point, there was a green vertical line showing up on the final .jpeg. I thought the machine was broken, but reviewed the trouble shoot help menu, and it suggested that I change the resolution settings and that fixed the problem. I love the ability to scan Hasselblad negatives (B&W too) and slides as well as 35mm color negatives and positive film. The auto mode setting seemed to work fine for 35 mm slides. In the professional setting, there are many choices for resolution settings, which is very nice. However, be aware if you pick 9600, your final .jpeg file will be 32 megs, which is very large. Overall, it is a great machine and well worth the cost because it does 35mm as well as medium format negs as well as positive film.

This was a minor annoyance. My first photo scan was excellent. It is hard to tell the original from the copy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living In The Past I'm writing this review on my second V600. The fist one died within the first 24 hours of setting it up. From the first attempt to use it, it complained about the cover not being closed, not being able to communicate and it made strange noises. But, it did work a couple of times and the results were great. I got the defective unit replaced without any problems. And, I'm now in the process of converting my collect of slides and B&W film and I'm extremely happy with the results so far. Only problem I see with this unit is the slide/film carrier is flimsy and Epson does not sell replacement units. If this unit keeps working the way it has so far, I'm going to need a new carrier in the future. So come on Epson, make this key component available on your website. Or, build a more robust carrier and send a replacement to all us registered owners.

The quality has meet my expectations and the time it takes to scan slides, negatives, and photos is acceptable. PDF documents are easy and quick. One annoyance is manipulating through the instruction manual. One has to jump around to get all the steps needed to understand what is appropriate in order to accomplish what I want to do. I did have conflict with existing Epson printer (RX600) that eliminated its ability to scan. I highly recommend this piece of gear. Hopefully instructions will be better organized in the future.

Some of the color photos were very faded etc. I was surprised that most of them came out much better than I ever expected. Being able to process three or four pictures at a time was a big time saver too. I also scanned about a thousand old slides (both 35mm and 127). The 35mm always produced good results. The 127 slides were not good quality to begin and they didn't get any better by scanning. Some of the 127 images were truncated by the scanner. I had to manipulate things a bit with some of them (about 10%), but most scanned fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does the job I have an Epson Workforce 2540 all-in-one and also the Perfection V600. There was very little difference in the scan quality between these two scanners. Color correction for accuracy is needed with both scanners. I was not impressed with Digital Ice because it created pixelation in some areas of the photos and took out some details as if they were dust. I do all of my editing in Photoshop Elements and don't need Digital Ice anyway. If you don't have a scanner, then the V600 is a good product at a good price. If you already have an Epson scanner, then there is no need to buy the V600 unless you need higher resolution and the ability to scan negatives and slides. Epson makes quality products and I have owned several Epson printers and scanners over the years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 Scanner I purchased this scanner primarily because I had a large number of medium format negatives I needed to scan.( Previously, I had the V300, and it worked well, but couldn't handle the larger format negatives.) I have scanned almost 700 negatives so far, mostly B & W, 220, but I have also scanned a number of negatives of a format used from 1899-1984, which do not fit the holder supplied with the scanner. (The negatives are 1/4" wider than the supplied frame will hold.) I ended up devising a crude way to position the negatives directly on the glass bed, and got surprisingly good, clear, results, even though the edges of some of the negatives were slightly curled up. If I get to the point where I want to make large prints, I will make something to hold the negatives flat, and I will re-scan. So far everything has worked well for me, whether doing 35mm slides/film strips, or the larger format film negatives, plus copying photographic prints and text items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner I quit using my old Epson 4490 scanner because it was no longer fully supported. I purchased the V600 and I find it easy to use. The buttons on the front are really handy to place a scan into your e-mail or to use it as a copy machine by sending scans directly to the printer. Set up was easy and everything worked right off. The 600 is really fast with the led illumination. No waiting for warm up. Nice machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good scanner; confusing instructions I've only had the scanner about 24 hours. My main reason for purchasing is to be able to scan 35 mm slides so that I can use the images in a PowerPoint presentation. It's actually working very well. The "confusing" instructions for 35mm slides are scattered throughout despcriptions of the 4 possible scanning modes; however, for the "Full Auto Mode" there is a special note in a box which says that 35mm slides can only be scanned in "Full Auto Mode." Since finding that bit of informaiton, scanning has been easy, and results are acceptable. The Users Manual has an index. However, it's not useful. There are only 2 entries for slides, and neither reference is the one about the requirement to scan 35 mm slides in "Full Auto Mode." Epson should review the entire Users Manual for accuracy and clarity.
