    My main reason for buying this scanner was to digitize 35mm and Stereo Realist slides shot on Kodachrome 64 film. My other scanner (Microtek i700) works fine for reflective material and I need the larger bed. But the slide scans were dreadful: color shifts, blown-out lights and impenetrable darks. The Perfection V600, on the other hand, coupled with Ed Hammrick's excellent VueScan software, gives me slide scans that are nearly spot on in color and contrast: details visible in shadows, almost no color shift, and subtle differences in light areas well-preserved. I can even scan my mounted Stereo Realist slides in their mounts by laying them (carefully) directly on the scanning glass. This saves lots of time otherwise needed for unmounting and remounting the images.Since my main reason for looking for a new scanner was to scan slides, this scanner completely satisfied my needs and wishes. And the price is a bargain, too.

    This is a very respectable desktop scanner which I use to scan a variety of media from color transparencies to gray level figures and text. The scanner has a high hardware resolution and in nearly every way that I have used it, it has performed well. This is why I tend to purchase Epson scanners. However, the primary reason for me to upgrade my old Epson Perfection scanner for this one is to get a model that supports MAC OSX Lion which the advertisements said it did. When I installed the scanner, I found that the only support that Epson has for Lion is through the native MAC Image Capture utility. There is no current Epson developed user interface for this scanner under Lion. The result is that the MAC Image Capture utility crashes in some instances and it does not allow the user to exploit the maximum resolution of the scanner. After talking to Epson user support, I came to the conclusion that their advertisement of support for Lion was premature and false. I still like the scanner and use it, but fairly disappointed at Epson for leading me down the wrong path.

        Comments about Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner:

        This is one of the best options on the market if you want to capture high-quality images, and I say this after using it as well as doing the research beforehand.

        In terms of comparison, I chose this over the CanoScan 9000F because it has comparable resolution capabilities AND the V600 can lift the lid 90 degrees and detach from the bed (cable stays connected). This ability to scan the faces of large objects is an important feature for the amateur archivist like myself. I use it for scanning family bibles, frames, and other bulky books and items where you want a stable scan as opposed to a photograph. Photographing works too, but you need a very stable stand and consistent lighting, etc. This makes it easy. I have gone through several hundred scans (bought this a month ago) to arrive at the following thoughts.

        1. I bought this scanner because I have piles of photo albums, slides, negatives, and documents relating to family history. They need to be digitized for preservation's sake, as well as the ability to share with family in a safe and convenient manner. If you only scan occasionally, or you're not concerned about quality and customization, this may be a bit above your needs. On the other hand, if you're not willing to shell out the cash for services that digitize collections, or pony up for the professional grade machines (many hundreds and even thousands for top-level scanning devices) then this is the level you need to be at.

        2. Pro: Image quality/clarity. Many scanners (including this) tout high DPIs. To that I would say that you will almost never need to use the high end of this scale. Focus more on the structure of the device, the options, and the software than the actual top end DPI, provided you get at least above 3600. I have been scanning 2"x3" B&W photos from the 1930s and 1940s recently, and even at 800-1200 DPI I can blow them up to the size of my monitor without reducing image clarity or seeing any pixels. When I scan a really nice photo at upwards of 2400 DPI, I can read street signs and shop windows two blocks away from the subject that I couldn't even read on the original photo. *Disclaimer: I have not scanned many photos above the 3600 DPI setting simply because at that point I have not been able to actually see any improvement in the image, only a larger file. That's not a point against the scanner, it just means that the images you're scanning really only have so much size/quality to begin with, so at higher resolutions you're just creating more file space. Also, even if there is an increase in quality, it just means that instead of blowing up your 2x3 to the size of your desk, you could almost make a mural... And that's just not very practical, and it doesn't change how the image looks in an 8x10 frame. Again, be reasonable about what your intentions are and what you're willing to sacrifice in hard drive space.

        3. Pro: Space. The 8.5x11 flatbed is big enough to scan almost all the photos you are likely to see as a family archivist. Unless you're a pro, don't try to buy a huge device to handle every possible scenario, buy something that can handle 98% of what you will encounter. You can afford to deal with oversized prints, paintings, or other oddball items that don't fit this machine. Your time and money are best spent on this device which is going to treat you well when imaging the vast majority of your collections. Your smaller scanners and feed-through scanners might be handy and more portable, but their capacity and quality are not as flexible, and they won't allow you take advantage of scanning multiples at once (see below).

        4. Pro: Edge-Detection feature. You need this. And you don't even realize how much you need this until you start working. I was glad it had this feature but just didn't even know until I had loaded eight photos on the flatbed at a high resolution, pressed scan, and then starting prepping the next group of photos. Boom, all eight files pop into the folder with sequential file names. Scanning at a decent resolution takes time (see below) and in order to maximize your efficiency, this scanner does all the work by recognizing photos individually and saving them as separate files. You can verify this in Preview Mode before starting the actual scan each time. It works great.
        *Small con: Be careful with glossy old-fashioned photos that have wide white margins; I did have to scan a few handfuls of these one at a time, and I think the scanner had trouble recognizing the actual borders of the photo (all the white space), and was therefore grouping them all into one image. You can't draw boundaries or "tell" the system where the images are, you have to open the lid and shift the prints around or remove some. This was only happening with one specific style of print, and didn't happen with several other styles that also had white margins, so it's not a big drawback.

        5. Pro: Semi-Portability. Actually it's a bit bulky, which I'm sure other reviewers have noted, and it's not going to slip into a briefcase. But it's also a lightweight machine and so it's easy to move around the house. Sometimes I work at my desk in one room, and other times I bring it into the living room and scan while watching TV. It's probably not ideal if you spend a lot of your time interviewing and need to be in and out of spaces quickly with a lot of small equipment. But if you are doing this at home or an office, and occasionally working off site, this is all you need.

        6. Pro: Software. I have not used other programs so I can't make comparisons here. However, the Epson Scan software was easy to install, easy to start up, and easy to figure out. I was scanning within a couple minutes of opening the program. I'm fairly tech-savvy, perhaps, but even for the techno-challenged, this will be a breeze. The program has separate "modes", and it defaults to "Home" (Basic). This has the least number of changeable settings on startup, so it's very intuitive. When you're ready to start playing with the light balance and all the other corrective effects, the Options menus and Mode changes are all easy to find. At that point, you will want to glance at the manual for a little guidance on using those features, but implementing them is easy.

        7. Pro: Auto-save. Other programs doubtlessly have the same functionality, but the Epson Scan software has a file name template you can type in for your work. First you locate the folder in which you want to save your images. Once selected, this remains the default folder even after closing the program and reopening, which is nice. In addition, you can type in a free text box (type what you want) to name the files according to your convention, i.e: "Family-Album-01-" which is stored as a prefix. (Also saved as the default after closing/opening the program.) The second box has a three digit number which begins at 001, can be typed in, and has up/down arrows as well. (Also saves as the default without losing your place!) By default, the next scan you perform will save the image as "Prefix + NUM", and the scan after that will keep increasing the number accordingly. If you're not happy with a scan or image, just delete the file, then go to the number box and click the down arrow or type in the number again. Watch this carefully when you're scanning batches of photos at once, of course. It works perfectly, but if you delete and then re-number one of the images in the middle of the group, you need to remember to bump the number box back up to the next one at the end of the sequence, or just change all the file names manually. Oh, the joys of archiving...

        8. Pro: Warm-up time. Practically non-existent. We're nit-picking at this point, but just the same: as advertised, the light source requires almost no warm-up and so after pressing the power button it goes through a few perfunctory motions and then it's ready to go. Be sure to hit up some professional sites regarding the LED light source versus others, but in my amateur/novice opinion, the scan quality is great. Realistically though, when was the last time you were in a great rush to get out the door and thought "I really need to get a quality scan of this photo before I leave!" So I wouldn't let warm-up time be a deterrent to other models, nor a huge selling point on this one.

        9. Con: Scan Time. Take this with a grain of salt, and be sure to compare apples to apples. From about 300-800 DPI, the scanner works pretty quickly, and I guarantee that you will not be able to record notes, names, and handwriting as fast as the scanner is able to produce your image files. If you're not taking notes during this part of the process (and I cannot imagine why you wouldn't!) then you still won't be waiting long. When you bump the resolution to 1200, 1600, and 2400, you are going to wait a little while. If you fill the bed with a large photo or several small ones, you may wait a few minutes for it to finish scanning. However, you must bear in mind that not only is this a great opportunity for you to be taking album and file notes, as well as preparing the next images, but you are also probably taking advantage of scanning multiple photos at once. So depending on how much recording you're doing for each image, the wait time is pretty easily absorbed with related tasks, and either way you're taking care of several pictures with each setup. And, if you're like me and watching TV or some other activity, you're likely to space off anyway. If not, you'll probably find yourself zooming in and out of the images you previously scanned, viewing every freckle on a subject's face. The detail obtained from even very small photos is amazing, and it's hard not to get lost playing with the high-res images and stay on task. Again, this is not compared to another brand/model, so it's likely that other scanners (working at a similar resolution/quality) are not going to be much faster or slower. But there are some great sites out there that have charts about this very topic, so look it up. This is not the most important thing to worry about, however.

        10. Con: Sound. Again, I can't compare to others, so do some research, there are comparisons out there. I found this scanner to be a little noisy when it's moving the device back and forth quickly. When scanning the image, especially at high-res, it's moving slowly and quietly. But when it makes the Preview pass, or when scanning at much lower (faster) resolutions, it does have a few loud "zwinnnnk, zwinnnk!" sounds. If you're working on your own, listening to music, or watching TV, this is not going to bother you. But if you're say, watching a movie with your significant other, or your wife's favorite show, you might get the evil eye when previewing. In fact, if your doing archive work while sitting with your S.O., you might get the evil eye anyway. (True story.) However: Be sure to see how it relates to others, and decide if this is really an issue (again, there are more important things, I'm just being thorough). Even if a library allowed you to use this there, it's probably too loud for a space like that, or a government office. But for home/office use, you're fine. In addition, you'll quickly establish a rhythm: when watching TV, I set up my flatbed and take notes during the show, and then make the scans during commercials.

        Summary:
        I've already said far too much, but I do hope that my detailed user experience may be of some help to others in a similar situation, or if yours is different then you can draw some conclusions about the features and pros/cons.

        I have not commented on longevity, workmanship, or customer service, simply because I have only had the unit for less than a month and I have only been through a few hundred photos (in a job where you'll easily go through many thousands). Also, notably, I have not yet used the ICE technology for removing dust and scratches. Sorry for reviewing before I do that, but most of the work I do simply doesn't require that degree of restoration. Be sure to find reviews on that specific piece of technology, it seems to do well. And of course, you won't be using it on every photo, only the ones that are very important or that you intend to enlarge and frame.

        In conclusion, this is a terrific piece of equipment, a great value for the performance, and probably the best without going professional. I am incredibly satisfied with it and would definitely recommend it for someone doing similar work to mine. Enjoy, and happy archiving.

              My old Epson 4990 scanner did a very good job but there were no scanner drivers for it for my new compuer running windows 8.1 This scanner is fast. especially with negatives and slides. The color accuracy is right on with prints and slides but needs a little tweeking on negatives.This scanner saves a lot of time and the quality is much better than the old 4990. The new software is similar to the od and still includes digital ice.

                Digital scans look better than original prints. Could use better software. But all in all... very good.

                      I purchased the V600 to scan family photos, slides, negatives, and documents. Most of the time I use it on photos in the "home" mode, which automates most of the settings with great results. Put several photos on the platen and the preview shows them ready to be scanned into separate files with one click. This is my favorite feature for quick scanning of a lot of photos.

                      For some difficult-to-scan items, I have used the "professional" mode, giving me total control over settings. You can get very professional looking results with some careful adjustments.

                      The digital ICE setting allows removal of most dust and small imperfections, but for some originals it results in blotchy color.

                      The included OCR software has enabled me to make Word documents from printed material - it's not perfect (no OCR is), but good enough for my needs. Also, the Photoshop Elements 11 is great for photo touchup and editing in a home or small office.

                      I have about 2500 color slides, some my father's doing back to the 1940's. I don't plan on taking more pictures on slide film, so my need to digitize slide film is finite. While I would have loved to buy a scanner with automatic loading of whole trays, the price given the finite number of slides, was prohibitive. The flatbed scanner, however has multiply other uses which, if not infinite, are certainly very large. I have had the Epson for a week and have scanned some five hundred slides as well as several strips of negative film. while somewhat time-consuming, it take about 1.5 hours to scan a hundred slides, the ease and quality are well worth the expenditure. the machine has a small footprint and can easily be stowed when not in use.

                              I am very happy with the V600 and the quality it produces. I called a B&H sales person who was very helpful in pointing out the best product for my needs and budget. I have scanned a few photos, 7 reals of slides, and maybe 50 35mm negitives so far. I would recommend the V600 for anyone with slides, negitives, and photos. I wear a light glove so I do not get fingerprints and oils on the scanning glass. Very helpful.

                                My daughter Veterinary Clinic Manager ask if I can put the negative over 300 frames into CD or DVD first I though that I have to scan the negative one by one then do another procedure in developing the negatives, since I never have photo scanner though I do vhs and 8mm conversion to DVD (juncd -) this is my very first time using the scanner for negatives. The process is very simple and easy to use it also develope the negatives I put in the scanner individually and goes to the folder you created. The cleaning process is awesome and very helpful. So now I am adding this Photo Scan to my Digital Service I highly recommend this V600 Photo Scanner by Epson to anyone you don't have to be scientest to work on this scanner it's very easy operations, and you cannot go wrong with the price.

                                Comments about Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner:

                                This is a surprisingly good product to set up and run. After reading some negative comments about the set-up and the instruction manual, I was wary. However, within 2 hrs. I was making very good scans from slides. The Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 included is obsolete by 2 versions, so I wouldn't consider that a plus. The plastic holders for the slides and film feel flimsy, so I will handle with care.
