This review is from: EPSON Perfection V500 Photo B11B189011 Film & Photo Flatbed Color Scanner


Scans Slides, Pictures, etc. really well.

Digital ICE works really well, as well as grain removal.

Once you turn it on, you just wait 10 seconds and it is ready to go.

Software is VERY useful (almost a necessity) and easy to use.

Tech Support solved my first issue in the cons.


At first, I was having trouble getting the Epson Scan program to run. (You need this in order to scan slides) It just didn't want to work. I was about to return it when I decided to call the tech support. 5 minutes later, it was working. Turns out I had some unnecessary drivers from a Dell A940 interfering with the program. I should have realized it before I called.

Also, this scanner is not supported in Linux, but if you jump through some hoops, you can get it to work, very difficult process though. Not sure if the software runs in WINE.

Otherwise, no cons.

Other Thoughts:

The main reason I bought this Scanner was to scan slides. Otherwise, I would not have need this product, although it is quite useful and does scan very well.
