"Not bad....Great unit...Faster, of course, at lower resolution....A sensor capable of delivering 9600 dpi that is built into a scanner that otherwise can only achieve an effective resolution of 1700 dpi is, for all intents and purposes, a 1700 dpi scanner (such as my Canoscan 9000F)."See more

"Great Buy...Works fine...It won't be fast but it will still be faster than most flatbeds at full resolution....This scanner has wonderful resolution at full power, however it will yield a bit of an unsavory file size (100+ mb's at least) so it's best to resize to a workable level in a photoshop program of your choice."See more

"5 stars....good scan...Faster than the Epson V600, greater color bit depth,syncs with Mac like a charm right into Aperture!!!...It's not a high-end Nikon film scanner, but then Nikon doesn't make film scanners any more and the Plustek scanner is far less expensive than the scanners Nikon made."See more

"Great Tool...works fine...Must faster than the scanner on my printer so if you have lots to scan this is a great tool....Epson has always been a good brand and even though I have not used their printers for awhile now as I have reduced our hard copy requirements by a large factor, this little machine is right up there as I can just move it to the back of the desk until I need it- or move it to my macbook etc."See more

"nice job...So Great!...The comments about a faster rate play back are true, but there's an easy fix in Windows Movie Maker available as a free download....Although certainly there are better units available, ones that will do a better job and cost a lot more (i.e., 10 times as expensive), this little film scanner will do a credible job, especially given that most 8mm films were not shot with, ahem, the best techniques concerning composition, subject choice, not to mention exposure and focus."See more

Having a device that has the quality to reproduce all the subtle details embedded in your negatives and transparencies that gives you full control over the crucial interpretation of your work is what makes owning a Hasselblad scanner attractive. Your valuable originals are never out of your custody and you are the one who decides when to do what and how. Furthermore, the 3F workflow can produce a throughput that has to be seen to be believed; automatic format detection, cropping, and individual file naming is right at your fingertips with just the push of a button.
The X1's 6300 dpi maximum resolution is more than you'll need in most cases, and although many scanners have a higher optical resolution, they'll not have better clarity and detail when scanning photographic film. The combination of the electronic image handling of the sensor, the device's mechanical precision, the quality of the sensor filters, and the resolving power of the Rodenstock lens are what set it apart.
The X1 can blaze along at up to 60MB per minute, which is unusually efficient. The FlexHolder holding system allows production speed without excessive heat. You can also perform batch scans with the X1.
"Superb hardware....Color is accurate....They aren't much slower, but neither has native software that works with any Mac OS beyond 10.6, so I have to use Vuescan....The X1 and its software, FlexColor, does.Pros:Gives you the best scans you will ever get unless you go to a bureau for a drum scan (and even that is hard to tell apart)."See more

"Love it...Very good...There's one menu command that I still don't know what it does.It'd be nice if it were faster, not sure whether the USB 2 interface is the bottleneck or whether one has take that much time to scan at hi-res....This is not a professional unit but that said I work as a professional and would buy one if I was shooting film as a hobby."See more

"Best yet...Worth it...The aftermarket product is made specifically for this series of Epson scanners and integrates with the scanner perfectly though I can only do one negative at a time for that film size....I bought this scanner because it is the least expensive of the Epson scanners that can scan both 35mm and 120 film negatives, and it has worked very well for me so far."See more

"love it...Works OK...I currently use a neat receipts scanner and although neat has the superior software, the Epson has a better feeder and you can lay a bunch of documents in the feeder and scan them in all at once with a push of a button....The latter is great, as it lets you add sheets as necessary, but is a bit slower, and will time out after a few minutes of inactivity (not a bad thing, and can be controlled)."See more

"Very good...Thank you....This scanner works just fine once installed, but Epson made it for Windows and it can be a nightmare installing to work with a Mac, particularly if using El-Capitan OS 10.11....In the 700, the filament had to warm up if you left the scanner sitting too long and that was a small pain as you waited for "the scanner is warming up.""See more

"Love It...THE BEST...We have a couple of "industrial" scanners only about sixty feet from my desk, but using the DS-40 allows me to scan while I'm still sitting at my desk, as soon as I realize that I need to scan any notes; I then put the scanned notes into a OneNote page and it is building up my "database" of usefull stuff that I do at work....l bought this today so that I could scan business cards directly into my MS Outlook and Salesforce.com This is an excellent scanner above the rest, I highly recommend to anyone looking for a new scanner to at least look at this Epson DS-40 it really gets the work done!"See more

"5 Stars...So fast...Black-and-white scan of a poorly typed/printed document had to have no compression to be legible; scanning it grayscale it was legible with some compression While the settings aren't quite as customizable as for the flat-bed Epson scanner I have, the speed of the Fujitsu ScanSnap can't be beat....It is practically mind blowing how fast this thing scans a huge stack of papers, receipts, various paper sizes/types, as well as how accurate the built in OCR is (I use the bundled ABBYY software for the OCR)."See more
"Love it....Thank you....It is fast, it will scan a bunch of pages with the automatic feed and I can add more before the batch of scanned pages is over, so that I can scan into a single pdf many pages automatically....As a card reader this is an efficient and fast scanner that is accurate in terms of placing the information from the cards in the correct fields."See more
