Rated 5 out of 5 by from You never know what it might do or why it did itAfter just receiving the product I wanted to start using it. That dimmed rapidly. When I tried to open the cover it didn't open with what I thought was enough force, which shouldn't be much. I lifted the V600 up by pulling on the cover. I remembered reading a review from somewhere that mentioned trouble with getting the cover open so I was hesitant about applying too much force for fear of breaking the cover. Not finding that review and having had the V600 for about a week and still not having used it, I said I was going to get the cover open even if I did break it. I got it open by holding the body of the V600 with one hand and pulling on the cover with the other. I had to pull a lot harder than should ever been required. Every opening after that was done as expected. The initial opening caused me to think the cover was held shut by some sort of a bonding substance and once that bond was broken the cover opened easily.It takes a while to learn how to use the V600. It took me longer than necessary to figure out why it wouldn't turn on and I still don't know why. After using it for one day I tried to turn it on the next day and it wouldn't turn on and all I had done the night before was turn it off. After much investigating, the switch, the cords, and the power supply, it finally came on and I have no idea why. But that is only the first part of the action mysteries demonstrated to me by this scanner.Hoping to eradicate all the concerns that follow after experiencing a couple of these problems I uninstalled and reinstalled the software. That didn't seem to help. I was using a Windows 10 application.I was prescreening/scanning only 35mm slides to my computer so repetitive action was the norm for me but not the scanner. It became a guessing game as to what I would see for a scanned product. There were times that a black line border would show on any edge of the of scanned product; never always in the same location or size. I would rescan the slide and get the same black border line results no matter which program I used or how I positioned the slide until....The last day I used the scanner a reproduction had this black border line across the top so I said what would happen if I turned it upside down? It scanned okay so I found the slide that I could not scan correctly from the day before, no matter what I tried, and, who knows why, this time it scanned correctly.There were times I would attempt to scan and I would get an error message that the scanner could not communicate with the computer. Turning the scanner on and off three times seemed to cure this problem for that scan. This problem was a random happening.There were times I would attempt to scan a rack of slides and see them copied upside down or turned left or right from the way I had placed them into the slide holder.Sometimes using color restoration made the orange sunrise or sunset show as green so I didn't know whether to use color restoration or not so I would decide after reviewing the scanned product.When the scanner operated properly it scanned slides in a very rewarding way. Showing the scanned product to be what I desired. Some of these slides are 50 plus years of age so I used the Digital ICE Technology option for many of these slides.If one looks at the cost for the V600 it might seem to be an almost acceptable trade off for the inconsistent results, however, before I fully believe that I am going to give the Epson V600 back to the store where I purchased it and think about it. I have about 10,000 slides I want to digitize. I want a scanner that works properly all the time or at least until the scanning light burns out. And the scanner I had might have worked properly all the time because it might be more a problem with the software and not the scanner. The scanner works the same way all the time; responding to the information sent to it. The only thing that differs is the information sent to the scanner.Yes, I will probably buy another and see how that new one operates. At least I have already been exposed to many of the nuances of the V600 so the disappointment might not be viewed as shocking. As I tell anyone or everyone, "I am perfect. Aren't you?" Nothing is and it is how we accept imperfections that matters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GoodBought this one to replace a V500 that died while in use. I will say this scanner is considerably quieter. Haven't scanned many images yet but on some I notice a blue halo around the outermost fringes of the scan area. So far no impact to image quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Software includedI replaced a epson v500 which included ABBYY software which had OCR. The software with the (ABBYY) V600 did not have OCR. ABBYY wants extra payment for the OCR feature. A Surprise and not a pleasant one?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scanner for Photos, Slides and NegativesI did it! I went through generations of photographs, slides and negatives and digitized them using the V600 scanner. 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 wasn't easy to find the product and many retailers were out of stock. I finally got it directly through Epson at a good price and it was shipped quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Usable despite poor featuresI bought this product because it was one of the few scanners on the market capable of handling 2 3/4" slides. 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 Very good scanner for teh moneyGetting great results from this scanner. My settings for scanning slides are 3200 DPI and 48bit color. Sometimes the scans add large black borders to the pictures but not often. I re scan and all is good. Not sure what the issue is. This is a good scanner. Im not sure what a more expensive scanner will bring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement for my 4490I've had this scanner for a few weeks now and really like the quality of the scans. I have been using it for old family pics. I tried several different types of scans and did side by side comparisons until I found my favorites. Old faded pics came out great and so far I haven't had to retouch. My old Epson worked for years and scanned 1000s of pics, I expect the same from this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this scanner for high resolution artworkI use this scanner for my illustration business and I have been very happy with it. Even when you are scanning a larger piece you can do it in sections and sew it together in Photoshop. The software installation and user interface was easy to work with. Great product and value! I also have another epson workforce scanner printer that has been solid for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Major problems with installation.Installation causes corruption of Windows Office Applications. I am still trying to work out the bug. I did some test scans and they look OK. Epson needs to fix their driver. I can't really give a complete review of scanning function.

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 Fast scans and very good color/contrastOkay - I've had this not even twenty-four hours, but I am very pleased w/this scanner. I know this V600 is an older design, but w/ the included SilverScan software, it is fast and the color / contrast is very accurate. I was struggling w/ an old V200 on a Mac. Didn't work well, even w/ third-party software. This V600 is reasonably priced and still available at the office stores. Besides the image quality, I like that the lid clicks part way open, I like that it comes online fast. I know it's an old machine, but it just works! I have some family photos that I didn't want to run through my document quick scanner. The extra effort this scanner takes is worth it. I haven't done any adjustments in SilverScan as all is working like I expect from the default settings. Bravo Epson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pick another scannerYou 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.

Except for not understanding how the special features are supposed to work, it appeared to be meeting my needs. I'm scanning approximately 4000 slides. Tonight I ran into a problem that I cant resolve. The preview slide shows the correct colors but when the scan is sent to file it is very red toned

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the scannerI bought this scanner about a month ago. Very little info came with it so had to go to You Tube to learn how to work it. Love it!I primarily purchased it to scan negatives and it is a little disappointing I can only scan a couple of old negatives or only two small strips of 35mm at a time. I have a couple of thousand to scan and it is taking a very long time. The functionality of the scanner is good with many options. I will eventually get them all done :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick ScanningI have been using my husband's Epson scanner for years and decided to get one of my own. This one is similar to his, but much faster and has more features (which I haven't used yet). Two things that are different - and are a problem for me - are the location of the on/off button (hard to find near the back) and the quick "drop" of the lid when closing it. I expect I'll get used to both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice scanner, but slowPurchased this scanner to digitize a bunch of very old negatives. Had to purchase additional film holders from Negative Solutions. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use.I bought this for my wife 3 years ago, and were just now beginning to use it. 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. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scannerI have had this for about two weeks. It is faster than my printer/scanner, the scanning screen is legal size so I can place up to 6 photos on it at once, and it has a higher resolution. 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 Limited capabilitiesFor what it is, it is not a bad scanner. I’ve used it to scan pictures for a webinar that I did for a museum and they turned out very well. However, something Epson fails to clearly mention in their literature is that scanning of film (negatives and positive such as slides) is very limited to ONLY modern film sizes. As an historian, I run across odd sizes of film. I bought this thinking I would be able to scan 8 x 10 and 4 x 5 glass negatives, 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 B&W film negatives, and 4 x 3-1/4 B&W glass positives (Magic Lantern slides). For those sizes it fails miserably. The backlight in the cover is only about 3-1/4” wide, so scanning with a backlight will ONLY work if your film fits in Epson’s film holders which position the film over this narrow window. It won’t scan negatives placed directly on the glass. They have to be in one of the holders for the machine to work scanning non reflective materials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad quality controlI have tried these twice, both times they had dirt or something on the underside of the scanner glass. They seem to work ok except the first one put a red stripe down the picture (due to a dirt speck in that area) and the other one just had dirt on underside of glass and I avoided scanning in that area. I may try one last time as the scanner specks are very good. I would suggest that you make it easy to remove and clean the glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers many but not all film sizesNEGATIVE COMMENTS: I have a collection of negatives of family photos, going back to the 1930's. The negatives are in many formats, but the V600 carriers natively handle only 35 mm slides, 35 mm/126 negative strips and medium format negatives up to 62 mm wide. I have some negatives that are 45 and 70 mm wide, and 16 mm wide 110 format. I have a 3D printer and printed my own carrier for the 45 mm wide negatives; I just place the 110's on the bed next to each other inside the medium format carrier.POSITIVE ISSUES: I have used the copy feature to make a copy of a paper document, and it is faster and simpler than scanning to a PDF and printing. Converting color negatives to positives, especially using color restoration, is very easy and gives great results. I like being able to outline multiple negatives prior to scanning, and having the scanner save each negative in batch mode by holding the CTRL key and clicking each negative. I could not find his time-saving feature mentioned in the User manual. I have not tried scanning 35 mm slides, or OCR conversion yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Scanner - But with a few quirksI bought this primarily because of its ability to scan medium format negatives. I also have the ES-500W for almost everything else. The V600 does an excellent job and its issues can be worked around. No, I don't typically read instruction books, rather, I rely on intuitive software. Sizing medium format film is not so obvious. (Set it under configuration). Since you can put two negatives in the holder well separated, why can't it figure out the size of those negatives? But if you put in a 6x9 (2 1/4 X 3 1/4) negative and it is set for 6x6, it will crop it to 6x6. If you put in two 620 negatives (one strip), it will often scan the first correctly and clip the second to include part of the first (See image example). I think that might be due to a smaller gap between negatives. Does not seem to happen as often with 120 file (larger gap maybe) unless it is very thin. Thin negatives often result in clipping or not finding a negative at all. But, after telling you it can't find a document, it shows the scanned negatives on the normal tab and allows you to select the area to scan. There are two tabs (Normal and Thumbnail). When you want to select/crop negative areas to scan, use the Normal tab. To automatically select image areas, select the thumbnail tab. Clipping only happens in the thumbnail tab.It seems to have the ability to save setting groups like the 500W has with save and delete buttons. However, I have yet to see how to enable them and consequently, I am changing parameters every time I change film formats. I guess I may need to read the instructions for that if it's in there. This is a fantastic feature on the 500W.The V600 provides several adjustments when scanning film. Typically, they are all unchecked except for Unsharp Mask. Unsharp mask seems to work well. But sometimes for B&W negatives, it sometimes creates a distorted image especially on edges (See example image). Rescanning with the unsharp option unchecked, corrects this problem. Unfortunately, when you are ready to scan (B&W negatives), it always has this checkbox selected, and so must be unchecked before you scan. On the other hand, the Digital Ice feature, which does a reasonable job of cleaning up scratches and dust, is not checked and must be checked before scanning if you want to use it. Perhaps both of these can be addressed if I figure out how to save a setting group. I have included a combined image showing the use of these options.On many old color negatives, the color has faded. The Color Restoration feature does a pretty good job of getting it back to the original state (See Example image)It took me a while to figure this out, but you can scan larger format film as well without using the holder. For example, 65 or 70mm file such as the 116/616 film can be scanned by placing the film directly on the glass. I align it with the white line under the glass since it must align with the light in the top. When you scan the film, it will tell you it cannot find an image, but then allows you to crop from what it scanned (see example image). Although I have not yet scanned 4x5 negatives, I expect you could get most of the image in a scan and merge two scans in Photoshop (or some other software) to complete the image.Finally, For scanning prints, it works extremely well. I use the 500W for most images, but for small prints that the 500W does not handle (only down to business card size), I can place several prints on the flatbed and the V600 will scan into separate files beautifully. I have not used this scanner for regular documents, but expect it works well if you only need a single page at a time. Check out the ES-500W if you have much of that type of work to do - it is fantastic. Despite these little quirks, the V600 is an excellent scanner and very affordable. I would definitely recommend this especially for someone with lots of medium format images to scan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well after you figure out how to use itI bought this primarily for scanning old slides and color negatives. It does a nice job scanning. Took a while to figure out how to get the lid open for the first time as it seemed stuck and I didn't want to use too much force. I recommended the scanner to a friend who had the exact same problem opening the lid - even calling tech support and taking it back to where he bought it. My suggestion - PUT SOME KIND OF NOTICE about this issue directly attached to the lid to avoid having customers angry before they even start to use the scanner. Or better yet, fix the issue on opening lid for first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent scannerThis is a decent scanner. I bought it to copy photographic film. For some reason, I was under the impression it could handle 4x5 negatives, but alas, it can only take as large as 120 format film. There are plastic trays that hold the film during scanning, but if the film is curved, it does not lay completely flat so there is a loss of quality in the scan. I tried to lay the negative between two pieces of glass but then the scanner would not work. There should be an override so that I can scan regardless. Otherwise, if the film is flat, it scans great and the software seems adequate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very goodI 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.

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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking forWanted to digitize a several thousand slides I have but was reluctant to purchase a dedicated slide copier. After all, when you are done with your slides you don't need it anymore. The V600 does it all - makes great copies from photos, negatives and slides with very little corrected, if any needed, after the scan. No more searching for the "right" 35mm slide copier - this is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner ReviewThis has been a great scanner and the price is right. I have had no problems with it since purchasing it a few years ago. I have had good luck scanning negatives and old slides, but a flatbed scanner is not as good as a dedicated film scanner. It is for that reason that I gave it a 4 star rating and I feel that it could more intuitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy With this Scanner!I am very pleased with this Epson scanner. I have had it a few years and it always does the job and is reliable. I mainly scan documents into PDF and love that it creates multi page PDF files from multiple documents.I have also used this to scan my grandfather's slides from the 1940's. I am amazed at the wonderful digital pictures I can get from 70 year old kodachrome!Very impressive. I have had other scanners before but this is a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanner!I bought the Epson Perfection V600 scanner primarily to scan my wedding photos on medium format negatives. I figured that its purchase price, I would actually save money if I had sent it out to be scanned. 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 scannerI 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 - V600Scanner 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 ScannerThis 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 scannerI 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 toolI 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 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 scannerI 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 softwareI 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 ScannerI 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 reviewIt 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 Good scanner but I'll be upgrading to v800 or 850I'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 Solid performer with a few minor issuesBought 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 priceSo 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 Great scanner but NO 64-bit driversI have owned this scanner for almost eight years now and have scanned thousands of pictures and documents. It does a great job but I scan my pictures into Photoshop Elements which is now a 64-bit program. The Epson Twain driver for this scanner is still a 32-bit driver so it is now incompatible with Photoshop. I had to buy a third party program (VueScan) in order to scan my pictures directly into the Photoshop Elements editor.Come on Epson! If you are still selling this ancient scanner, please create a 64-bit version of the Twain driver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High-quality, low priceI 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 ScannerI 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding personal/home business scanner since 2010!I purchased the V600 back in 2010 to scan photos, positive and negative slides as well as create PDF documents of my personal and business records. This unit has made it through thousands of high-resolution scans, PDFs and continues to deliver to this day. 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!

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 MoreI 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 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 Epson V600 Photo ScannerI 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.

While this one does not have a specific slot for size 110 film from back in the '70s, it is extremely easy to fit it into one of the other forms. It also scans "positives" which is helpful. Fixing color, etc. is easy and can be done automatically or manually. I simply can't say enough good things about this product. I bought two of them for my business. The only thing I can't comment on, at this time, is longevity, because I've only had it a short time. But, I have an older Epson scanner that is still working great and it's about 8 years old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Bit Better Than a Basic Photo ScannerI 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.

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 All Negatives Very Blurry with Horrible ContrastIt 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.

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 Good Photo ScannerThe quality of the scanned photos is very good. It's my first Epson scanner. However, I find the software more difficult to use than my previous brand, especially from the print button. Sometimes I have to completely end the program and start over again. Otherwise, the features and quality of scans are excellent. Scanning is also pretty fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great scanner for my old negativesI 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 work horse scannerEvery photographer needs a dedicated scanner, because? Because it is 2016. If you have spent a big chunk of your life in the analog world of the dark room, you will need to transfer the old slides and prints and negatives into digital files. This scanner helped me to remember my time in the dark room. Want to make a proof? Use the auto scan. Want to make a pre-press file? Use the professional mode. the other day I spent eight hours scanning old dye transfer prints, and this scanner took it all in stride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo ScannerHad 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 PerfectionMy 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 scannerThis 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Epson ScannerMy Epson Perfection 3170 Photo scanner, that I have had since July of 2004 was starting to freeze periodically during scans recently. 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.

My computer has Windows 10 so I had to download the driver update. I am still working on slides and I probably will be for some time as there are a lot slides for me to work on. I have not attempted any negatives yet but I am sure that they will transfer as well as the slides I have done so far. The process of slide transfer is time consuming but well worth the effort so far. I am more than pleased with the scanners ability to download the slides and with the software to edit the slides after the download is complete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ScannerThe Epson V600 has exceeded my expectations. I have used it to scan hundreds of photos and documents. It offers so many options and is easy to use. 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 also used it to scan photos at different locations so I recommend keeping the original packing in case you need to transport it offsite. Scanning documents in PDF is also a neat feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth itAfter a day's use I love this scanner. I was able to scan multiple photos in one scan. Dust removal and color correction is very good. 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 Great scanner for the priceI 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 fastPurchased 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.

Therefore the V600 is not worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and efficient scanner - documents and photos and slidesI bought this scanner to scan over 10,000 slides I've amassed since the 60's (1960). Being an avid photographer, most of my work was made in slide material (a lost art), but I needed to modernize and convert those to digital. Epson's Perfection V600 made easy work of the conversion and added some element of restoration of color and removal of dust and streaks. Overall, I am happy and impressed with the quality of build and efficiency of scanning. Everything I needed was included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullThis scanner is easy quick. The flatbed is simple and I can scan film negatives in record time. This scanner is perfect for various size negatives. If you want to convert your analog film to digital and cannot afford a drum scanner, this is the perfect solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New but good so farWe just got this scanner, but it installed easily and is WAY faster than our older Epson 3170. The old one worked well but this is an upgrade with at least as many possibilities. Will know more after more testing, but so far so good! Feels solid and slightly lighter than the old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600I have used this scanner for about 4 months. I use the pdf option to copy receipts and other papers for my taxes. I have also scanned slides from the mid 60's to early 70's. The pictures from the slides really came out great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EPSON V600 Photo Scanner.I got this Scanner mainly to scan 110mm slide. Since it was a flat bed I could lay the slides on the, preview them, select just the picture portion of the slide. It worked very well and was the only method I found the worked for the 110mm slides. I have Windows 7 Pro and I did find one problem.. Sometimes the scanner could not be found even though it was connected. Someone selected the solution. I had to go to a TEMP file and delete everything there. Quite a few Twain items were there. This suggestion worked although it happened quite a few times. So it seems your software is not completely ready fro Windows 7 Pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scannerI purchased this scanner about a month ago because I have so many negatives from the time before digital photography. I have 35mm negatives going back as far as 1970. I have used the scanner to transpose them to digital images. They have been excellent. I have shared them with relatives and friends whom we have known for that time. I have used the scanner to put about 400 negqtives on to my computer with no problems what so ever. I will update this message when I have used it for another few months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from technology needs to improve, but a good productI have been holding off buying a scanner to transfer my 15 albums of family photos until now - this scanner is rated pretty high by the pundits. If you are an instant gratification person, keep waiting for the technology to improve and become faster. A 4x6 color print takes about a minute to scan and transfer to your computer file, and that includes the time it takes for the software and scanner to "recharge" for the next scan. Also, the software is somewhat haphazard: the scanner sometimes loads the picture sideways or upside down, or adds unnecessary white space around the scanned photo. This means you need to use your photo editing software (like iPhoto) to format the pictures after the photo is transferred to your computer for about 70% of the pictures. So, it is not a seamless, convenient plug and play type of product. My 2000 photo transfer project will be taking more than the month or so I was expecting to invest: sigh . . . I hope my kids appreciate the effort! Comparing the photo to the scanned file: the original photo is visibly sharper than the scanned image, so do not expect an identical copy. However, the price is very good for this product. If you are accepting the recommendation from the pundits who monitor these products as gospel, then you're not going to find anything significantly better than this, so just be patient and accept what is offered. Namaste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanner but?Scanner was easy to install and does a great job scanning prints and recognizing them. Big problem was that the ABBYY software crashed all Microsoft Office apps like Excel, Word and Outlook. As soon as I uninstalled that software the Office apps worked fine. Epson needs to either delete this software from the package or fix it so this does not happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm really liking my Epson V600 ScannerI bought the scanner to scan my paintings. It does a great job of that. But, to my surprise, it also does a very nice job of scanning my slides and film. The only film I've had trouble scanning is very narrow film strips. Not an expert on the old film types, so not sure what size I'm talking about, but I know the film is from the 70's. But on the slides and wider film it does a very nice job.

Some individuals reporting problems with the supplied software but for me along with the Adobe Element software I have yet found that to be the case.I have been able to make high quality scans from the start,and the software fairly intuitive in its use! I have also found as of late a number pieces of peripheral equipment arriving with cheap trashy electrician cords and connections,not the case in this unit . All the cords themselves are also more than adequate in length. Very responsive,smooth, and quite in operation. Results are excellent! Only issue be sure your computer components are up to the task!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for AmateursI bought this scanner to create digital images of a lifetime of family photographs. For that use it is acceptable. But it makes very poor quality scans of film negative - the film holder is not adequate for holding the negative flat and cannot accommodate various formats, only strips. The resulting image is of much better quality when scanning the actual photo.Scanning old black and white photos is problematic as the scanner often interprets the photo as a document, saving it as a bmp, not jpg. Also, it often interprets the area of image as being different than actual in trimmed photos - oval or round - further cropping the image. Even superimposing the photo on a clean sheet of paper does not remedy this problem.However, it is fast - 75 photos an hour scanned and edited in Photoshop. The ability to "read" the actual print size is a plus as it then doesn't require cropping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product Easy to useThree complaints that I have. The plastic tray that holds the 35mm negatives should have a hinge so that it can swing down and not snap in, it does not always "snap in" very easily. Also application on the desktop should stay open until all the rolls are done, it keeps closing in full auto mode and not in custom mode. This requires minimizing all the windows to scan another 8 negatives which is kind of a pain. Third get people that speak English for customer support, I called once and pretty much came to the conclusion that I was on my own to figure this product out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scanner Ever!I purchased this scanner to scan old negatives and slides of my family. I was surprised that this scanner included a free copy of Adobe Elements 9. The scanner has selections for getting rid of dust particles and for restoring color. In a few cases, the slides were bad enough that the restoration of color made them look worse. But there were very few exceptions. Most were fantastic. I also scanned slides for my husbands family and restored the color. The family had them made in to a cd slide show and all enjoyed them and were amazed at the color. I would have a difficult time replacing this as it's performed beyond what I expected. The more "restoring" you choose, the longer it takes for the scan to process. I don't have the highest memory so I'm sure with a newer computer it would be faster. But it is well worth any wait to see the results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as AdvertisedI have been looking for a scanner which can do slides, negatives, photos, and documents . . . EASILY! So far I've done over 1,000 slides (some of which are almost 50 years old) and negatives without a hitch. Color correction is pretty good; however, with software on my computer the final result is very good. The additional software allows me to correct spots, creases, and defects. I have a long, long way to go; however, I am confident that I'll get through the whole process without problems. One thing: You have to be patient as this is not the fastest process. The scanner will do four slides at a time which takes a minute or two. I settled on the 600 dpi resolution which gives me a photo from 1.5-3.0 MB which is about the same size taken by a good digital camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality performance, with easeTwo months ago I replaced my old Epson Perfection 1640SU with the V600 Photo Scanner for my iMac Mini. The V600 produces the same high quality images from opaque and transparent originals with much more convenience and ease. Key features include the multiple image transparency mask, the automatic selection of image type and size, and the management of the scan image files. The V600 has been trouble free in operation, providing a real productivity boost, particularly when working on projects that include scans of different types of materials: size, color, black and white, print, photographs, artwork, apaque and transparency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional PerformanceI purchased this scanner about 6 weeks ago. I have, so far scanned about 5000 photos, some dating to 1911. Some are the size of a postage stamp, difficult to view from the film. These come our larger with detail not seen on the photo. Discolored old photos with red or yellow tint scan without the discoloration. I have not done half of the photos I have, but will continue. It is time consuming to do it right, using computer software to enhance the older photos, but the space savings is tremendous! When my time on earth finally comes to an end, my family will NOT have to make a decision about throwing out all the family history stored on film, they can have everything on a portable hard drive the size of a stack of 20 photos!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 ScannerI have hundreds of negatives, positives (slides) and photos that I would like to put on CDs or DVDs, or in albums, or even make 8 x 10 photos for framing. Also, many Ektachrome slides taken around 50 yiears ago have now deteriorated to almost a monochrome brownish-orange, not suitable for any use. I had a good film scanner (no photos), but it had no features like adjusting resolution or color restoration. When I changed from Windows XP to Windows 700 and Vista, it no longer worked. A friend told me that he bought an Epson V600 about a year earlier that would scan negatives, slides, and photos and that it had features like selecting resolution and color correction. After researching it and viewing comments, I ordered one. It had one defect in that there was a tiny white spot, apparently under the glass where it could not be reached to clean. Epson was very helpful in troubleshooting, and sent a replacement along with instructions to return the defective one. I tested it in all modes, including restoring the color on an Ektachrome slide, and I was very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend it to anyone.One addtional comment. When my friend recommended it, I researched it and noted the price had gone up something like 20%, maybe a little less. I decided to think it over, and the next day decided I would go ahead and order it. I found that the price had gone up overnight close to another 8% or so. It is still worth it, and it was just a little over 1/2 what I paid for my original scanner that had no editing featuires and would not scan photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant ScannerI bought this scanner about a month ago. Since then I have been scanning 35mm slides and negs, 2.25 transparencies and negs 4-6 hours every day. (Retirement is grand!). The scanner has performed flawlessly, producing beautiful digital files every time.I have not used the digital Ice feature nor the auto color adjustments, so I can't speak to them. I found the sharpening feature to be over sharpened on the pre-set "Manual" setting, but have lovely results on the "Low" setting.I was a professional photographer for 30+ years with images in multiple stock photo agencies, so I have a collection of images to scan that's going to take me some considerable length of time (don't worry . . . I don't plan to scan them all). If this scanner continues to perform as well as it has so far, I will be very happy. Actually, if it doesn't last through 30,000 scans, I would probably buy another one just like it. At this price point, it would absolutely be worth it.My only complaint and the reason for not giving 5 stars, is that the instructions are so poor. The "owner's manual/ instructions" is so convoluted and difficult to follow that it's worthless to all intents and purposes. If it weren't for U-Tube videos, I think I would still be figuring out how to use this scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fantastic!I am a genealogist and previously had owned 2 AIO printers in two years because the unit(s) couldn't handle the minimum amount of copying & printing I was doing. Then I inherited 15 boxes of family photos & documents. When the 3rd AIO broke down after a marathon of scanning, I researched and bought the Epson scanner. It works perfectly! I was able to scan 400 photos in a day without one single problem! There are 4 different scan choices from "just push the button" to professional grade. Choice of labeling the photos and where to store them, automatic color-correction, clean-up options, cropping of photos. The scanned photos and documents have come out clean and sharp. I couldn't be happier with the Epson results and work ability. The unit's size is also just right for storing on the average bookcase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 Photo ScannerI use this scanner to mainly convert Black and White negatives, color negatives and color positive film in to digital images.I have small size film through 120 roll film and have also scanned strips through 4 x 5 in cut film when the image allows me to crop it in a panorama manner.I was amazed at the ability of the color restoration ability to correct off color and faded Ektachrome slides. The Digital Ice works quite well to correct blemishes including removal of some hair and dust from the images.I am very pleased with the ability. Only wish it could scan 4 inch wide film. That would allow me to work with 4x5 film on the scanner.

I opted for this over less expensive converters as other reviews expressed dissatisfaction converters. Connected directly to my Windows 10 PC. Trouble communicating with the V600 at first. I downloaded a "fix" from the Epson website and/or rebooting the scanner establishes communication. Software easy to use. ICE software helps but blow the dust off each slide anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from meets expectationI bought the V600 after thoroughly reviewing all the other scanners in its price range. I bought it principally because it had Digital ICE as part of the hardware. It performs as expected.Like all scanners in this price range the biggest issue is the limited availability to adjust the image quality. The V600 is the best at this that I have used.I was slightly disappointed that I could not individually adjust multiple images when I wanted to scan them together, but that is not a deal breaker.Lastly, I wish someone would teach Epson how to write an instruction manual. It is the worst I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600I and using an iMac with the latest operating system installed. I must admit that there were a few glitches getting the scanner to work. However, now that it is working pretty durn well I love this scanner. My wife's parents lived the last of their 11 years with us. The old fella was 102 when he passed. We finally started going through the boxes, and boxes of goods they brought with them and we came across a couple of large boxes of photos, black and white and color as well as over a thousand slides. So I have been scanning all these memories and my wife is sending copies to her brothers. Most of the pics have not been seen by family in 30 40 years so they are all thrilled and I am a hero - thanks to this V600 scanner. It just works wonders separating pics all put on the screen together and plotting them in a folder individually neat as you please. Thank you Epson for this great machine. If it were to die I would get another right away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullTo date, over 2000 b/w , color negatives, 35 m/m slides have passed through my v600 scanner, and results are excellent, in many cases where very faded slides are scanned, they are almost magically restored to their true original colors by only selecting and pressing the "Color Restoration" Button. The "Backlight Correction" with it's three options are also a plus. My only unfavorable comment is the difficulty in opening scanned images in Photoshop Elements, and also the lack of a OSR program for this scanner.

Photos do not to have to be strait when scanning, V600 automatically straitens them for you; also, you are able to scan multiple photos at one time and V600 will separate them so you have individual photos instead of a group of photos on one page. In the professional mode, I am able to edit each photo, as I deem necessary. When scanning negatives or slides I am able to scan two strips of six negatives at one time, the same with slides.I am most satisfied with the V600 scanner, Thank you for a product well done.Dean

The V600 I've had for a while puts an aqua line thru the middle of one strip of color negatives, turned black and white negatives into three-tone black to white, and now smears all the color negatives like every one was jiggled. I think I have a lemon. I bought it directly from Epson but they have no record of my purchase.

The V600 is very similar to the 3170 which made it very easy to change. Even the software is almost the same, with the addition of a couple of useful features that the old didn't have. It is refreshing to see that changes were made only for improvements, not for the sake of change. I was also surprised to learn the V600 is no faster than the old 3170 was - just about the same. I think the LED lights are a definite improvement over the old fluorescents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats my Hp hands downI had an Hp flatbed and use a Macintosh computer as I am a retouching artist. The Hp was OK but they neglected to update the software with Apple's penchant for constant OS improvements. I looked for a new scanner and looked to Epson since I have 3 of their printers and have been happy with performance and support. The epson is elegant in design and the software well supports its features. I like the location of the controls and even though it seems like a small thing, I really like that the lid stays up when you open it. When you are positioning multiple pieces of artwork on the glass it frees up both hands to do the work. The resolution is great and warm up time is minimal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect!This is the second Epson flatbed scanner I've purchased over the years. I had some technical issues with the first model and upgraded to the V600 and have been using it with great success for the past three years. My latest and most ambitious project was the digitalizing of my entire photo collections to include thousands of prints, slides, and negatives. This daunting task (still ongoing) was accomplished rather routinely once becoming familiar with the accompanying software. The work was tedious and slow, but the results were acceptable for my needs. However, if I was to do it again, I would seriously consider using equipment specialized for slides/negatives as the flimsy V600 attachment for these formats can be problematic at times. Flat documents such as prints, charts, letters, receipts, etc. were quickly scanned with great success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mixed ResultsFor the price and for all that it does, I have to say it is overall a good product, but there are caveats. I previously had a 15 year old high-end Nikon Cool Scan II, which needed some repair but is out of service. So for my limited budget, I determined this was the best product; in addition to scanning negatives and slides, it also scans photos of which I now have many. My main purpose, though, is to scan old pre-digital negatives from the 80's and 90's. And I have come to the conclusion this flat-bed scanner is best for photos and that for my purpose a dedicated negative scanner would have been better. You scan negatives from a template which holds the negative strip on the flatbed which then scans using a focused beam to produce a very high resolution image. However, I found all of my scans so far produced have a glare through white space, which I was unable to correct via scanning or software manipulation. It could be the negatives, but I believe it has to do with the quality of the scan tech. It is also slow in the scan routine. I think this flat bed design is best for photos. FYI: During installation I was prompted to download a 'patch' for my Mac 10.12.2, which addresses a year-old negative review concerning compatibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent photo scannerSo far I have used this scanner for slides and photos. Some of the slides were 50+ years old and were faded. Some also had dust that would not come off using a gentle microcloth and air brush. The scanner did an excellent job removing dust and restoring color. There were a few that I still had to bring into Photoshop, but overall the scanner did an excellent job. I do have an issue with Epson, though. I had an excellent Epson photo scanner that was almost as good as this scanner and had lots of used left in it. Epson quit updating its software after Windows XP so it became a huge paperweight. Yes, there is alternate software out there that will operate the scanner, and according to reviews does a good job. However, the cost of the software was over half the price of the V600 scanner. I opted for the new scanner which has some improved technology. In effect, Epson forces the user to buy a new scanner or buy after-market software that you hope will continue to do a good job with your equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Photo ScannerI am delighted with this scanner for the huge process of archiving our old hard copy photos for the kids. It's easy to use, even for my grandma self. The directions could have better explained how to scan multiple photos to separate files but all you need to do is make sure they're a bit spread apart on the scanner bed and it pops into that mode as well, but some of my first scans came out as a single file of several pictures. The corrections it allows you to make to enhance pictures are adequate for the amount you'll want to bother with when doing a massive project. All in all, this is a great workhorse for preserving old photos. The speed is good as it eliminates the "preview" mode many scanners have, goes right to the scanner and it's easy to designate where the photos will be stored on your computer so you can file, name and sort as you go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Scanner for SlidesI purchased the scanner primarily to digitize a very number of old slides. I was pleased with the overall operation of the scanner. There was one very annoying issue. The scanner has an "auto" mode which identifies the type item being processed. While this is a nice feature, I wouldn't call it totally automatic. I had to continually randomly move the cursor in order for it to process the for slides on the glass. This had to be done to start the scanning and to reinitiate a scan for each slide. It will not work unattended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very satisfiedI bought my scanner about two years ago, when I started a project to scan all of my parent's slides and photos. Most of the slides were ektachrome and the colors had changed over time. I used the "ice" settings to renew the color. It did a fantastic Job! Over-all, I scanned over 7000 slides and photos, the collection spanned well over 60 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Decent Photo ScannerI purchased the V600 Photo Scanner mainly to accommodate scanning my old 35mm slides into my computer for the possibility of converting some of these old slides into real printable photos.I've scanned a couple of hundred slides so far, with several hundred more to go, and I'm very pleased with the ease of use. You can scan up to 4 slides at a time, preview them individually, and then save them to a specified folder on your computer. In addition, before saving the scans, they can individually be adjusted for brightness and contrast. I found this to be a very nice feature for some of the those pictures that were taken in the not so ideal lighting situation.I didn't find the scanning times to be quite as fast as advertised, but this is minor considering the real time spent is loading and unloading the slide tray to do the scans. It would have been nice if Epson could have developed a way to scan more than just 4 slides at a time.Overall I feel my money was well spent. Thanks Epson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 ScannerI researched at length for a scanner that would accomplish my goals and fit within my budget. The V600 met all the criteria. I was especially interested in scanning panoramic images taken on a modified camera (35mm) that yielded a 93mm wide image. Most flatbed scanners have the formats limited to the standard 24x36mm with a frame around them. From my research I was able to determine that he V600 would handle 6x9cm images so it would also be able to handle my wider format images. Quality and image sharpness is excellent as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect for MeI have scanned, B&W Negs, Color Negs, Color slideB&W prints,and documents to PDF. All were very easy to do and I was able multitask while Negs and slides were being scanned, they take a while when scanning at a high dpi.It has been a few year since I purchased a flat bed scan and one of the benefits of this scanner is that it you can open the cover to about a 45 degree angle which make it much faster to load and unload items to be scanned. This may have been around a while but my previous scanner did not have that capability and I ended up breaking a hinge.For me this scanner would be perfect if when scanning document or individual prints I could give each one a unique name rather than having a file name with a number attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Perfection V600 ScannerI am generally pleased with my scanner and would have rated it at 4 stars instead of 3 except for one extremely annoying feature.When I scan color slides, the scanner will often truncate portions of the slide close to the edge of the cardboard mount, forcing me to do multiple scans and then use ICE to make a new composite image that gives me the full image of the original slide. I don't know why the scanner does this but it is annoying as all get out. When I scan something, I simply want the scanner to scan the entire image that I give it. I can decide later what I might want to crop; I don't need the fool scanner doing this for me automatically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty goodI have had this for about six weeks. It did a great job scanning my fathers old slides. When scanning 35mm negatives it doesn't work very well for me. It has a hard time separating the individual negatives. There are four photos on each film strip. Instead of showing four separate scanned pictures I'm getting pictures that show half of one picture and half of the one next to it on the strip. I believe I have to film strips correctly loaded into the mask. I have talked to 2 0r 3 tech support guys and they didn't have a helpful answer. Also some of the buttons on the front of the scanner don't work for me. There is a button is supposed to scan to email. This feature does not work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Getting Started - Scans are Really GoodI've had my V600 for about a month or so and used it to scan in old family photos and b/w USN ship photos. The results were very nice! Since I also have an Epson WF-7620 printer with scan features, it took a while to figure out which scanner was showing up and once I had this figured out, scanning the photos was a fairly straight-forward process. It isn't instant gratification, there is a learning curve, so you learn it and understand there is a time frame involved so grab a beer and do your thing! I will probably have this scanner ready for use for a long time now - it gets the job done and I'm pleased with the results. You will need to go to the Epson Website and follow their instructions for setup if you have MS Windows 10 OS on your computer - (bummer!). But, once it's up and running, it's good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than what I had beforeThis scanner does much better than the scanner I used before. Unfortunately, scanners as a group are very low tech copy machines. Processing software can be good but the physical process is antiquated. Slides especially suffer. Slides are film mounted between cardboard which is thicker than the film itself. This means every slide is out of focus compared to prints. Why there couldn't be a slide focus feature seems puzzling. Just a knob to adjust focus would be nice. That might mean something more than just a surface glass for imaging the print, maybe a slot over the imaging mechanism on some sort of slide tray instead of the glass top. We are taking images of planets millions of miles away, but we can't scan a slide in focus yet. I think Epson could do it if they wanted to bad enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good And BadQuality of the unit is good overall as far as the software is concerned. But there are lots of little things that were overlooked in development and testing. Where to start:The "manual' is really bad. trying to print it was a waste of time and paper! No index, no page #s. Just a really poor effort. It should be well written, logical and a printed copy should come with the unit. 80 pages or so of loose leaf garbage is not of any use!Before handling your slides and films, wear rubber gloves to prevent marking your negs etc.The slide and negative carriers are atrocious! There is very little on the platen to position the carrier firmly, correctly and positively. there is a lot of white paint on the carriers for optical recognition by the scanner, but the markings of letters etc to align the various tabs and pins in the very shallow detents on the frame are black and difficult to see.When doing strips of 35mm films, any curl is a nightmare to hold in place. The long holder which is supposed to hold the film in position, isn't connected at the pivot end and when in use loading or unloading film strips, it will fall out, over, off and just annoy you. When bringing it down to hold the strips in place, the locating snaps tend to not locate without a lot of fiddling about and the supposedly pivoting end doesn't stay in place making positioning of the film strips a frustrating experience.While scanning colour neg film, the software often mistook an eye for who knows what and blotted it out. this happened mostly with colour slides. Most annoying was that I didn't see it at first and only after reviewing the scans before moving to folders did I see it. Then it was too late to go back and rescan without a lot of greif. then I made sure that after every scan of 2 strips of negs I would check the pics. Any issues usually went away if i switched sides of the carrier and redid the neg scan. I stopped using the "dust removal" option before scanning the film and that seemed to work.Using the 35mm (2x2) slide carrier, of course the slide goes through the carrier so you cannot pick up the carrier with slides in place to spray air to remove dust as I did with the neg strips.The slide holder has "indents" on each side of each slide pocket ostensibly so you can remove a slide with your fingers. That just does not work! If you try this, the entire holder will move around and you wind up picking the holder up, moving the slides off to one side and replacing the holder and putting the slides back in each nest. Any movement at all causes the holder to go over the slides and you cannot get the slides repositioned with the holder on the platen. Once I complete the scan, I lift the holder and sweep the slides to one side so I can pick them up and then replace the holder to reload.If you leave the scanner unattended and your computer goes to "sleep" you need to close the Epson scanning program and reopen it. I think I had to turn the scanner off and then back on again as well.After clicking preview, you select your options and then click scan. Often, when making my choices on the left side, I inadvertently click preview again. Most annoying! It would be nice if the software would know that you have already chosen preview and when it has done that, the preview button would be inoperable until after the scan operation has taken place. It would also be great if the choices you make for each scan sequence would be there for the next scan without needing to be selected every time.My! This is a long-winded review! I just hope somebody reads and heeds this!Good Luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beware rebuildsI 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 Epson V600 scannerI love this scanner. I have scanned thousands of slides and have had very little trouble. It will restore color on some slides that are over 40 years old and removes dust motes well with the digital ice feature.Occasionally the scanned copies have black borders and I have to re-scan them or edit the borders out. I do not know why this is so I have started previewing every copy before scanning to make the correction necessary.The color is good and with a little editing it can be restored to the original quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wantedI am 70 years old and have been shooting photos since I was about 8. I kept a lot of the negatives in a cigar box I painted in cub scouts. It is time to preserve the images. This scanner does just want I want. I can fit the various odd format negatives in the film holders with a little bit of creative use of black construction paper. I am scanning them at the highest resolution. It takes some time, but the results are great. Storage is cheap so why not get the b best resolution. If I had to scan stuff 40 hours a week, I might have gone for something quicker, but for what I am doing this fits the bill. I also use it for OCR and it works fine for that too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V600 Photo Scanner - really nice for the priceIf you don't need to scan negatives bigger than medium format, this is a great option, that also will scan normal sized paper documents. The scanning resolution is good enough to get down to the grain size on my 120 size negatives, no need for better resolution.The accompanying software is not well documented by my standards, but is easy enough to figure out. As supplied, this unit can scan 35mm film, slides in 2x2 mounts, and 120 or 220 film. The stock film holders are usable, but I find them finicky, and need to be used carefully to get the film flat. Each film holder has a pattern of tiny holes at a specific position to tell the scanner & software what sort of film is being scanned, which is great for normal film sizes. Odd frame sizes on normal film widths have not been hard to adjust to. Odd size negatives on odd size film are a bit of a challenge.I sometimes have sheet film negatives that are small enough to be illuminated by the scanner, but so far I have not figured out how to do this conveniently. The scanner will scan a wider neg than the neg holders will allow. A generic film holder "cheater" which would tell the scanner that there is a random sized negative or transparency on the platen, and provide an outline within which the odd size neg needs to be placed, would be great to have. If you shoot "instant" film, then reclaim the negatives, this scanner is a great way to make prints and digital records, but you might lose some neg area if you shoot 4x5.It would be nice if it was supplied with a holder for 127, 126, 828, 116 and other roll films too - there are plenty of old negatives from these old cameras that need scanning.The next model up, which will do negatives up to and a little over 8x10 inches, is currently 3x the cost of the V600 - since I hardly ever touch a view camera these days, there was no need to spend the extra money.Overall, it's a great tool, and most creative amateur photographers shooting 35mm or medium format should not be limited by the V600's capability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for detailed artworkThis 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 Photo from 1936I scanned a family photo from 1936 which had some scratches on it. Couldn't believe the difference after scanning using the restore color and Digital ICE feature! Other than that I have not tried any other features, but was very impressed with how easy it was to get a great reproduction of this family treasure!!

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 NiceSo 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 slidesI 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 LifeMy 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 expectedScanner 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 Awesome scanner!After trying to scan some negatives on another scanner that was meant for 35mm, I bought the V600 as I needed a unit that would handle some medium format negatives from the 50s. The negatives were in pretty bad shape with lots of scratches, dirt and who knows what on them. I selected the Digital ICE option when scanning and I have to say it is a magical! I thought I'd have to spent hours trying to fix the images up to a decent state for printing, but I don't have to do anything! Thanks Epson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works wellThe scanner, works as it should. The scans can be adjusted for resolution, so you can get bigger or smaller files. I bought it for scanning color and bw negatives. For that it works fine, although it is suppose to separate the pictures (in case there are 3/4 pics on a 35mm neg.). Sometimes you have to separate them manually. The photo program that is packaged with the scanner is fine; i thought i might have to use my Adobe Photoshop, but the smaller program does all that i have to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the V600 ScannerI 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 nullScanner was purchased to replace a Konica/Minolta slide/film scanner no longer supported by Apple, with Lion OS. Since I still have several thousand slides to be scanned, this looked like a good product. It does a great job, was installed easily. It is a little faster than my old scanner, still requires about 3 minutes to scan 4 slides. The slide holder seems a little flimsy and you have to be careful not to smear the glass of the scanner when removing the slides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scannerI 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from capacity for slides - templet pinI really like the color correction and back light correction. Not used ICE except by mistake and it was very slow for copying slides.Generally satisfied with V600 but it only copies 4 slides at a time, and folks doing this have hundreds of slides. Templet should allow for 8 slides, as my 5-8 yr old scanner does. 2nd - the single pin hole holder for the templet does a poor job. There should be two holding/anchor points.

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 Pretty goodFour 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 scannerProduct 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 Epson Perfection V600 scannerI am so pleased with this scanner. I have slides that are 40 years old and the dust spots are numerous. Before using the ice feature I spent weeks editing the spots out one at a time. Now editing is a breeze. I just crop and straighten (If necessary) and I"m through. The colors come through beautifully. There are some slides that require color adjustment, but that is not the fault of the scanner.I couldn't be happier. Avoiding all of those tedious editing chores makes this scanner with the ice feature well worth the money.Before you scan the first time I do advise you to scan 4 slides over and over using different settings so that you know what gives you the best results. Epson provides you with a preview of your photo and you can cancel the scan if you are not satisfied. Once you have found the best settings you can save them and not have to repeat the process.I give this scanner 5 stars; something I have never done before.

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 negativesVery 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.

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 7I 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 ResultsI 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 scanningThe 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 SCANNERLAST 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 Easier than expectedRetired and not too computer savvy I purchased the Epson V600 to digitized all my old family photos and slides.Downloaded the latest drivers for my Mac and simply started to copy photos and slides in the automatic mode. Have done several hundred pics and slides so far and appreciate the quality of the digitized image. It was much easier and quicker than I expected. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from snookeredThis is my 3th epson scanner, both of my scanners were ruined in a water line break.. I was most excited to set up the scanner. I have been most pleased with the scanners well maybe not results from scanning slides or negatives, but I was so looking forward to "the complete restoration solution for print and film.". Only to find that it means using the adobe Photoshop software.. Having used this on a trail base..it is not the most user friendly software.. some how I feel snookered!!LOL But I still love the scanner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600This 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 ScannerI 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 Price and FunctionalityI 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 PerfectionThe 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.

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 ScannerThe 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 hardwareI 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 nullI 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 ScannerI 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 Nice & affordable ScannerThe 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 setupGreat 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 imagesWould 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 ReviewIt 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living In The PastI'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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OutstandingI have been using my V600 to scan slides that are up to 30+ years old. For a flatbed scanner, one word, amazing. I was able to use it straight away without even reading a user manual. The user interface is very easy to follow. I am not sure why some say it is complicated, it is far from that. spend a small amount of time tinkering with buttons to get a feel for what it can do and you will learn more about what it is capable of then reading any user manual. Great scanner for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson Scanner Delights Photography ArchiversThe Epson V600 Scanner is easy to use and produces photo files that greatly enhance the prints, negatives, and slides that photographers have been storing in various albums and boxes over the years. It provides an enjoyable way to create virtual albums with all media combined for the albums of your choice.In particular, the "digital ice" feature makes photos even more beautiful than the original versions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works greatOnly bad thing I have found so far is the slide holder. After scanning slides you can't get them out of the holder. You have to take the whole thing off and end up putting finger prints all over the screen. Also Fed ex put a huge hole in the box - good thing the scanner was well protected with packing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ScannerI used this scanner to process a few hundred old B&W photos and a few hundred old color photos. 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 jobI 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 Great scannerI've been using my scanner for about a week now. I am very satisfied with it's simplicity and quality scans. I am scanning 35mm slides, 127 slides (2" x 2") , and 126 slides (instamatic). All are turning out very good using the automatic mode with the template. Sometimes I have to change the position of the 127 slides in the templete (sideways or upside down) to get a satisfactory image. I haven't used the photo shop or any other fix-it software because the results are good just with the automatic setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy SetupJust finished setting up the Epson V600 scanner and it was a snap to install. The first thing I did was scan a 645 negative that I had tried to scan with my old scanner but the results was not favorable. The image obtained from the V600 using the Digital ICE was outstanding considering the negative was 24 years old and contained lint and dust. I'm more than happy with the scanner.The only feature that I miss from my old Epson Perfection 3170 is that the V600 does not have a software smart panel that I'm able to find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 ScannerI 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 Good scanner; confusing instructionsI'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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As a slide scanner lacks versatilityI have been scanning slides in formats other than standard 35mm format from an older Yashika TLR (25.4mm x 25.4mm and 36mm x 36mm). In Auto Mode, this scanner does not seem to recognize a slide format other than the standard 35mm x 27mm so you have to resort to a manual and laborious procedure to scan a slide. In manual mode it does not allow you to adjust scan parameters whilst zoomed in on a slide. The user manual is so convoluted that you can't decipher a reasonable procedure to scan a slide (too many linked references as to what to do next - not step-wise) and alludes to icons (such as auto locate) that are nowhere to be found.This reviewer is a professional photogrammetrist and has supported the development of high-end scanners used by commercial and government agencies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knock Your Socks Off!I purchased my V600 scanner directly from Epson and I have no regrets. I set it up, ran the software on my XP computer, hooked up the scanner, and began scanning some old 120 black & white negatives. For my family purposes, the scans at 1200dpi in "pro" mode are perfect. I have scanned about 300 negatives so far, with no scanning problems. Someday, I'll read the on-line instructions, but right now, I'm having too much fun reviving old family photographs not seen in years! Maybe soon, Epson will develop an attachment and software to scan 8mm movie film that is too curled to run through a projector, but can still be scanned. The potential market is enormous, now that baby boomers are finding their parent's 8mm films ruined by time! Great product! Very satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Perfect!Received my Epson Perfection V600 one day after order + free shipping! 100% satisfied with B&H Photo. While I have yet to try any slides, my prints of various sizes and formats have been scanned perfectly. The color reproduction is spot on. And, the color reproduction enhancement function really fixes up the old faded color in my oldest prints. If I had to criticize, it would be that the saturation level is off a hair. No big deal as my Aperture software is doing an excellent job with photo finishing. With prints where I took very sharp exposures using my old Pentax and Nikon N6006 cameras, sharpening with my software was at a minimum.I am very satisfied with the quality and ease of use and setup with the V600. I am using a Mac and no issues with drivers or downloading software. I have not even tried to use any higher resolutions, save only going from 300dpi to 800dpi on some print scans.Looking forward to doing many more scans!Great product!Photoguy

I had 3 very old (100yr) b&w photo's in need of digitizing and restoration, and the ICE technology took over 70 minutes (>1 hour) to scan each one and left it with smeared bands, and less restoration than I could do by hand. I have not tested the color restoration feature but I expect it to be capable similar to that of the WF600.

The V600 is very easy to use and I reallly like the use of LED's. I'm sure that they will last longer and they have no "start up time". I also like the fact that the cover locks in an UP position to facilitate getting whatever you want to scan/copy in the spot it should be. There is a very small learning curve when going from the 2450 to the 600. I've used it for scanning color slides (2X2 and 2 1/4 square, color negs, some very old BW prints and some items out of a book. All very easy and gave great quality.I strongly recommend this device to anyone who wants speed and QUALITY in a desktop unit.

Set in one place where it will not be banged around and don't move it. Within a year and a half the scanner became out of focus on slides. Could not be repaired, so I bought a second one. Luckily I bought it with Visa, which gave me an extended one year warranty.4 stars mostly because of the software. There are a couple of scanning software that are better, but not enough to justify buying for my purposes. The Epson Mac software has some bugs that are very annoying! I use the Professional mode and the settings are not saved. This means that for each scan I have to redo all the settings. Like I said, very annoying. If you'll be using this scanner and want to get the best out of it, you'll need better software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ScannerEasy to use right out of the box. Replaced my old hi-grade Epson scanner from 1999.It works FAST even at 600 dpi. The what-are-you-doing box is intuitive and easy.Only draw back is that a loose, small item is hard to position on the glass because of the removable hold down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ScannerAfter reading some of the previous reviews some good and some bad I decided to purchase the V600.While running Windows 7 64 bit I did have to download the newest drivers, (I would have done that anyway) The Scanner worked perfectly. I was able to scan roughly 30 pictures in a very short period of time at the highest resolution. If you are looking for an affordable solution for all of your home pictures this is the one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Photo ScannerOver the last 2 years I have used the Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner to digitize (i.e., make a JPEG image) of over one thousand slides and old photos. I have no complaints. The setup instructions were crystal clear, and the manual is easy to follow and written in plain English with many key diagrams. The V600 restored the original color to my wedding pictures, which were over 30 years old. The copies of my slides were better than the originals due to the back lighting, color restoration, and color changing features of the software. Now I can view my newly created digital version of my slides on my computer rather than using a projector and screen. I would definitely recommend the V600 to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reviewing the Epson v600 scanerThis scanner and it's software does an execlent job with photo negatives that fit the included film holders. ie. 35mm and slides. It processes these as batch input 4 slides, 12 35mm negatives depending on how they are cut. The preview automatically frames these negatives to size. However curled negatives are hard to load and never flatten. Single cut 35mm negatives are impossible. I have some old negative of varing sizes. I was glad to be able to scan them. Since I scanned old negatives it would be nice to have more holders for these older formats like the 2 by 2, 110, and 126 and half frame 126. This is my fourth scanner and I am happy to finally have one that works so well with negatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding - flimsy hinge and negative holdersScanning of documents, pictures and negatives is outstanding. The software is easy to use. The ability to scan 4 medium format negatives is very useful to me. I owned a Epson Perfection 2450 prior to this V600. The V600 software and capabilities are much greater than the 2450. But the 2450 was heavier and seemed more solid. The hinge for the cover of the scanner and the negative holders in the V600 appear to be flimsy. However, if the V600 holds up for a couple of years despite the apparent flimsines, then the V600 will have been an outstanding buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI want to hold my review until I can make this product work. I set it all up last night , downloaded and installed the cd, following it just like it said. I was excited! I put a test paper in to scan...and it did great. I put a photo in to scan, and ......nothing, again, nothing. It wont even turn on to scan. I am going to try to uninstall and then ...re-install an see if that helps. If not ...I will try to call you for some help. You will not want this to be out on the web just yet...so I hope you catch it first. I will be most happy to review again when I can get it to work. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OperationOnce I synched the Epson with new Lion Operating System, I enjoyed scanning slides first. I learned every time I begin a new scanning session, it defaults to a different mode. Not sure why. I find interesting also that each time I scan I have to hit "Hide Details" before it will scan. Not sure if this was intended but that is the case.Otherwise I think it does a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GreatI 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 StuffI 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 ScannerIt 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 reviewI 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 OKWhen 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.

I have owned other flatbed scanners, I own a film scanner and I wanted this one just to give me the ability to scan 6x6 medium format film. I am very impressed with the quality of the scans, the scanner delivers the resolution that the camera was able to get. 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 ScannerI 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.

I enjoy using this scanner because there is no warm-up time to scan as there was with my older scanners. It makes scanning quick and easy. The scanner software makes it easy for a beginner but with a couple clicks you can dig deep into all of the scanners abilities for the more advanced user. I look forward to years of scanning or until the next great scanner comes out from Epson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600 ScannerThis is by far the best photo scanner I have ever had. Operation is simple. Whether scanning negatives, slides, or photos taken with a digital camera, the resulting images are excellent. Without question, I would recommend this scanner to any serious photographer who uses the computer to store and/or edit photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullFor a while had in mind to scan my old pictures, I inherited my fathers albums after his death. Many family members come to me for pictures so with this machine I am able to scan, but with excellent quality. It's very easy to use, and happy with it. I like about it is that if you just want to scan quickly you can, if you want complex scanning and sophistication you got it. I go with the simple and its great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my mindWell, I have changed my mind about the v600.After spending more time with it I finally got it to working properly. I am very impressed with how well it renders my old photos. The film scan featureIs awesome. I have two issues with the machineThat if corrected would earn it a 5 star. It only takes one film size. My mom had about 4 different cameras over the years going back to the 1930'sAnd I have old negetives in boxes and someAre larger and some smaller than the negative film holders included with the v600. Also, the software does not accommodate the odd size negative film sizes as it accommodates odd size photos. The other issue is the need to clickon the Epson printer icon each time I scan something, because the button on the machine won't do it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant photo scannerI 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ChoiceI've used Epson scanners for many years and this V600 is absolutely the best. I bought it because I needed a good negative and positive film scanner and the results are great. I am an artist and one medium I work in is black & white film using a Holga - a toy camera. I need a scanner that will produce an honest result - a sharp high resolution digital image from my negatives. I used to work with 35mm Kodachrome and this scanner allows me to recapture some of my photo art from years ago. For the cost, I could not find a better scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ZoooooooooooomJust hooked it up, slapped in a wonderful (but faded) picture of my wife from the early 70s. The tattered print scanned in about 5-6 seconds, I opened the 300ppi image in PSCS5.1 then clicked auto tone, straightened the horizon, cloned out some nasty spots, and, like magic, the picture looks like it was shot yesterday (not 40 years ago). The scanner is only 10 minutes out of the box. Not bad. Lots more to learn! Should be fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I expect with EpsonWe 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.

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 NewsWhile 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 softwareI 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 nullI'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 nullHaving 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 ScannerPros: 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 ScannerI 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 ScannerSo 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V 600 ScannerI 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for money; continuous improvement ideas for 5 starsI'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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scanner is great; software had fixable issuesThe 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Installation, intuitive procedures, great results.I bought this unit about one month ago and have scanned over 1,000 old (some over 50 years old) 35 mm slides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun to use!I bought the Epson Perfection V600 Scanner a few weeks ago and have spent many pleasurable hours making my images come back to life. There was a learning curve for me because I am not that at ease with technology. But after watching a few instructions on the internet, I am getting the hang of it. And it is fun!It is taking 65 year old negatives and turning them into images I can restore and share with my family. It's like magic. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good...but the software.I have had a V600 for 5 years (my old one physically destroyed in an accident). 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 Acurate & high quality scansI purchased this 2 months ago specifically to scan slides (old) to digital photo files so that I could produce video slide shows on DVDs to give ease of viewing and to save quality of photos.

I then follow up with additional correction software, Perfectly Clear V3 and or Adobe Photoshop

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality scans ... butI 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from why replacement?I had an older V600. I kept having to "reload" the program. Apple tried but could not fix the problem. I waited several times on the Epson line. So, re-checking the web, the v600 still came out on top overall. So I got a new one. I hope the new one works.

The only delay was waiting for the software to load and then update. My only comment would be that the instructions are minimal at best. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same Great FeaturesAfter years of service my old Epson scanner was having trouble connecting to my computer. As I use it every day I couldn't have break down on me. 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 priceI'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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than pleased!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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Hardware, Some Software IssuesThe 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 scannerThis 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 nullI 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 NameI 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 ReturnedI bought hoping to scan old pictures. Could not install on 4 different computers, on phone with tech for 3 hours. not able to connect. Could not get them to give me a patch, (in my opinion I believe there is one) I am also an ITT person so I think I know a little. Returned and going to purchase another brand. First and last time buying an Epson prouct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black & White negs not goodCan't get good resolution scanning black and white film negs in Professional mode. The only way I have been able to scan them is use Full Auto/Color Positive Film, and I get a negative image, which I then have to invert in PS to get a positive pic. Transparencies have been decent overall, but not happy with B&W negative film scans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600I 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 scannerI 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 userI 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 Overall SatisfiedScanning negatives is so much more time efficient and useful for archiving images than darkroom room. The V700 is a good tool for this purpose, and a factory refurb makes it a cost-effective way to do it. My only negative comment is that there is a small amount of dust on the underside of the glass where I can't clean it. If I were scanning to make display prints, that would have to be fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific for my needsAs an old time photographer, I had plenty of 35mm color slides. I wanted to preserve the best of the best so I turned to a scanner that I knew would handle the job. So glad that I did. Likely other Epson Scanner would do the same, but this one worked for me. No mater the model, it is not an automated process; nor should if be, it is to be expected that you have to work for the best slide, but I must say, the Epson process and software made the job a "piece of cake". Thanks Epson

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V-600 LED (EPSON)LED, this is a very good move in the right direction. With LED there is no wait time for the bulb to warm up. It helps you get right to work immediately, and there is not a chance of color inconsistency. If you need a wallet size or an 8x10, it will scan it easily. If you are scanning slides, from 120/220 down to 135mm, the V-600 will get it done. 5 stars for this baby! It is Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The jury is still outIt 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 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 SolidI'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 Epson V600 ScannerI 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 MemoriesScanning 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 Very Good ScannerI 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OkayI purchased to update an older Epson scanner I have had for many years and would have continued to use if it would have worked with my new laptop. The V600 was easy to set up and has worked fairly well. It has locked up a couple of times. Also I have found it does not scan all size negatives easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great photo scannerI first bought a slide only scanner, but returned it as it gave poor quality. I returned it and upgraded to the Epson V600. What a difference! Grat quality and versatility. Only difficulty is with larger older negatives which I had to improvise by placing it on the tray without the plastic border. A recommending to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullgreat for photography. My family photos from 1930 are very clear and I can make copies for family of the one and only photo of family members. I was pleasantly surprised to see I can make prints from the negatives, amazing.Fast, easy to use, easy setup. I am thrilled with this scanner. I was also very appreciative of Adobe photoshop that was included, Oh my what a difference to my photos. I can do so much more.The sky is the limit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice scannerI've only used it for a week or so and find it easy to use and it does a great job of scanning. I've used the film scanning feature on 2.5x2.5 film and it does a good job. The only thing is the neg. holders are not made very strong. It seems a bit slow in scanning, but then it may be the settings I'm using .All in all it does a nice job, and it came with a nice photo program. I think you can't go wrong with this scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scan resultsI'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 slowBought 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 scannerThe 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V600This is a great machine; it is easy to use and pretty fast when you consider what it is doing. I have scanned more than 8,500 negatives, slides, photos and documents in the last 33 days, and the V600 just keeps on working as advertised. Epson's service is also superb. The first V600 I bought would not upload the software, so I called the Epson helpline. 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. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who wants a scanner that works as advertised.

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 PerfectI 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 CanoScanThis 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 rescueMy 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 ScannerI 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scanner... BUTI have had this scanner for about 2 months. I have scanned about 2500 slides so far and have generally been very satisfied. 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 USELESS SOFTWAREI 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.

It does a wonderful job, especially with the ICE feature turned on. Although it does take a bit longer, the results are worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't made a single scan, 40 hours trying to make it workLet 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=6Doesn'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.

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 ScannerMy 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 complicatedOnce 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!

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 editingAs 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 Excellent Color and ResolutionI used this scanner to scan 1100 photos for a class reunion, and it never let me down. It replaced one that was much less expensive (which was also an Epson) that had started "clunking" at every scan. This one never made any unusual sounds and worked very efficiently to allow me to complete my work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from History Project Made EasyFor the last five months I have embarked on a life history project that includes transferring slides, negatives, prints and other paper data to an electronic medium. This photo scanner has made it fairly simple to change back and forth between different material yet retain a very high quality scan. Worth the price and effort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nearly PerfectI 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 Color RestoredI love my new Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection in ScanningI 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent EquipmentThis scanner does exactly what it is promised to do, scan photos, slides, and negatives to several different resolutions.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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not what I expected from reviewsI picked up May 3, 2017 from Walmart after ordering on-line and have till Aug 5 to return which I may decide to do. 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 excellent scansI have thousands of slides that need to be scanned into my computer, and after some market research I chose the Epson V600 as the best performance for the price. The scanner is very versatile as to the desired quality vs. time to scan, and has some powerful software to correct picture quality before the scan is done. I have made good use of the Color Restoration for old orangy slides, backlight correction, and the ICE dust removal. I use the Home mode and Professional mode for most of my scanning. See the other product reviews for hints on how to best do the scanning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent scannerThis 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so goodJust set it up and it seems to scan old slides into digital images rather well and that was the main thing I was looking for. 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.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullSo far I have been able to scan 1950's black & white negatves and it's done a great job of doing that at a speedy pace. I have not scannned anything else yet. I like that you can put 4 at a time and it singles them out for you. The negatives that I have scanned have been reverted to a positive image in Picasa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the jobBought this because it advertised a feature to clean up old photos; either I haven't figured it out or it doesn't work like I'd hoped. The scanner does a nice job of scanning. I haven't figured out a way to tell it where to save them too, but I think my computer - An Aspire F15 with Intel 17 is the culprit. The newer and "smarter" they are - the "harder" they are to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullThe 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 3-½ Years LaterI 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.

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 ScannerI 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 Excellent Quality & FeaturesAs 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.
