V600 Photo Scanner Comments
I have been using my scanner for about a month and totally enjoy it. It produces the excellent results that it has stated in brochures. I would recommend this unit to anyone that wants to transfer slides or negatives into digital pictures.

I'm using this scanner ...
I'm using this scanner for home photos and although the quality is good, it's much too slow as I can only scan one photo at a time. I have tooooo many to scan and it's taking forever.

It worked better than I hope. I have always had great results with Epson scanner. I would give a 5 star rating,
I previously used an Epson Perfection 2450 scanner. Although the V600 and the 2450 are flatbed scanners, they do a reasonable job with film, the V600 definitely better. I recently scanned a 35mm Tri-X B&W negative at 4800 ppi (16-bit) and enlarged it to 11x17 on my Epson R2000 printer. The result was remarkably good. I just wish the V600 accepted 4x5 film, like the 2450 did.
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!
The 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.
I 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.
I 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.
I can't find any fault with this scanner, fast, versatile, lightweight. All the things you expect from Epson products and always get. Absolutely Terrific!
I have many photos and negatives from my film camera days and was excited to work with the photos and negatives using Photoshop. The Epson V600 works great at scanning them and getting them into my computer.
I'm using this scanner mostly to scan medium format film. It's very easy to setup and use. I think it's a very good value at this price point.
Unloaded it, connected it and it DOES NOT start. Surely they test these before they leave the factory!!
