Rated 5 out of 5 byTomB_TX from Clear improvement over V700I've had a V700 for years, used primarily for scanning film (mostly negatives, some slides). The results were usually good unless the film had a "bow" or curl and wouldn't stay flat in the carriers. In recent years it would also "lose communication with scanner" and Epson Scan would close - sometimes several times for 20 frames.The 850 is faster, has glass carriers to hold negatives flatter, and has yet to lose communication during a scan. I'm very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 byMaxey from Solid perfaormanceI bought this about a year ago and have found it very reliable, quality results, and does 35mm slides that are better then other scanners I have used. I have been using scanners, as a volunteer for 15 years. We use a professional version and this scanner performs as well, just a smaller scanner size.

Rated 5 out of 5 byGolf Shirt Group from Good Reliable Scanner that works in Windows 10I like this Scanner, I use it as a film scanner and odd document scanner. It is pretty fast, does a good scan with basic software and transfers to Photo Shop easily for final color preference. Takes a little skill and patience for a easy learning curve to give professional results. Don't forget to unlock bottom and top scan locks.

Rated 5 out of 5 byIRDW from Incredible scannerIncredible scanner, in using either the Epson software and even more possibilities using the SilverFast version tht came ith the scanner. I have thousands of 35mm, 6mm x6mm, 6x7 and 4x5 film to scan for my image library archive. I am mostly scanning images to print on canvas and mounting as Gallery' wrap.

Rated 5 out of 5 byMel Jenkins from Best professional flatbed scanner next to drum scanningI have had two other scanners in the past but the Epson Perfection V850 is probably the best professional flatbed scanner by far and along with ICE software that comes with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 byJim from So-soOperation of the software is slow and tedious. Presumption is that the user is a PC/Windows user and logic follows that line. Advanced users will balk at the slowness. Scans are indeed sharp and forgiving.

Rated 5 out of 5 byGreen Co Historic Images from Great Image Detail, Fast and Easy to Use!I have a collection of 4x5 glass plate negatives from the early 1900's that I needed to digitize.After figuring out how to scan these with a low end scanner and doing a lot of research I decided to go with the V850 to capture all of the detail these negatives hold. A lot of these negatives are of businesses and I was hoping this scanner would allow me to capture enough detail so I could read the storefront signs and window lettering that are at a distance. This scanner exceeded my expectations and now the only problem I have is my monitor doesn't have enough resolution to bring out all the detail this scanner captured so I am upgrading to a 4K monitor, I can't wait to see the clarity of these scans on a 4K monitor!

Rated 5 out of 5 byShutterbug Sam from A big help archiving 40+ years of film based photographsNot only getting my old film-based pictures ported over to digital for archiving and viewing on computer or TV display, but having fun doing it. I own an Apple iMac computer as its interface and it DOES work with the latest iMac OS, Catalina. (However, a couple of non-essential features are currently inaccessible and I hope a future Epson update will fix that.) I'm getting some extremely detailed and accurate scans of old photos, and there are even some image improvement features that are not hard to master, to plus up shortcomings in your originals.

Rated 5 out of 5 byProfessor TP from It works greatIm new to scanning, but the Epson worked great right out of the box. It was easy to set up and the software is easy to use. My only wish is for an illustrated book or vid on all the ways to use the scanner. There is lots on youtube, but its hard to sift through all the non relevant stuff. Im figuring it out as I go. Great way to archive those very old family photo albums.

Rated 5 out of 5 byAAGrote from Best Film scanner you can buyI bought this a month ago but I'm very familiar on how they work and what they can do. I had access when I was a student and I didn't have the money for someone else to scan my film. In the big picture this will save me in the long run. I'm very happy to own one of my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 byGeorgeRa from Very good and fast scannerI am planning to scan my films and BW photos from about 1880. Epson software is robust a simple. Silver Fast is another story, weird interface and buggy. So, 4 stars because of this software. Epson software is simple but insufficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 bySteveO from Terrific scanner; Silverfast, not so muchThis is an excellent scanner, and I'd recommend it to anyone. Does an excellent job of positives, negatives, and slides. The downside is Silverfast; I've never been able to get it to work. However, the Epson scanning software works well enough that Silverfast isn't really necessary. The only thing that I'd want Epson to change is to sell additional holders for film, slides, 120, etc. as accessories. Especially if someone has a very large quantity of items to scan. It would speed up the process. It would also be nice if the scannable area was larger, like 11x17.

Rated 5 out of 5 byEBower from Great ScannerWhen this scanner is partnered with Silverfast scanning software, it can produce spectacular images from old film, slides, and pictures. I upgraded to this scanner from the epson Perfection V750 Pro because of the new features on this scanner and a good trade in. The new media trays allow for better flattening of negatives and the ability to scan 16 mm negatives. The no warm up feature is a nice addition. If this is your first scanner, there is a significant learning curve, but the results are well worth the effort.
