Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner
Starting in 1970, I was a professional rodeo photographer for 12 years. I am now going back and scanning my best photos for a book. I have scanned about 700 negatives to this point. The scanner is incredibly easy to use. The focus and color were perfect right out of the box. The accompanying Photoshop Elements software is awesome. I just picked up my first prints from my phofessional photo lab and even they were impressed.

Best scanner ever
I have been working with older versions of Epson's flat bed film scanners at my previous job for the past six and a half years, now that I am starting my own business I wanted the best, and this scanner is worlds better. I shoot mostly 50 ISO transparency film and the quality of the scan is spot on, only a cibachrome would be better!

Worthless on Windows 7
My 750 worked flawlessly on XP and Vista. With 64-bit 7, it's hit & miss at best. There is no copy function for Windows 7, but Epson tech support reported that many users have had success with the Vista 64-bit copy utility. (Why don't they say so on the drivers and FAQ pages?!). I installed it. Now the copy function, like the scanning function, has a mind of its own--some times works, sometimes doesn't, sometimes changes its mind in the middle of a project that started OK. Very disappointing.

not compatible with Lion
This would be a great printer if Mac would get its act together and let third parties program for their operating system.
For the Lion OS 10.7.5, you cannot use all the great features of this product. You are reduced to the few that are available from Image Capture.
By the way, this is where you open the scanner. If you open from printer/scanner, your results will be terrible.

Epson photo scanners
Received my new V-700 today and placed in slide digitization operation. I have two V-500s, a V-750 Pro and now two V-700s all used for slide to DVD. I have processed at least 45,000 slides with no malfunctions. Clients rave over quality of discs from 30 and 60 year old slides. Output from the 500s is excellent but the V-700 and 750 outputs are better. ICE works very well at cleaning Kodachrome and other films from fungus and dust

V750-M Pro Scanner
The scanner is great! The carriers are a little fragile but with care should be fine. Size is a little smaller than the photos appear. Set up with the download for Windows 7 went well. The reason for 4 not 5 + stars. The documentation as usual stinks. I like Epson products and have had several over the years. Not being able to have a PDF copy on my computer may change my mind on the next purchase.

This is one of the best and most versatile scanners available in this price bracket. I have been working with this scanner for 3 years in varying ways from fine art reproduction to slides, negatives, and print reproduction. My only complaint is that it is not larger! Epson, we'd love to see this technology available in at least a 12 x 18" format.

EPSON Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner
Bought this scanner because I have an EPSON 3880 printer which is wonderful - for digitizing old family photographs and general photographic work. It too is wonderful, easy to set up and use. The EPSON software is certainly easy to use, ScanVue provides a little more flexibility but SilverFast which came with the V700 Scanner is outstanding. The images are as close to perfect as they can be. I recommend this Scanner highly !!

Good Scanner here
The Epson 700 series preforms its tasks well and with a few caveats does the job. A reminder: load software before connecting scanner or you get nothing but errors and the silly troubleshooting screen. It would be nice if the slide a negative carriers were made of a little more substantial material. While they haven't broken yet they feel quite delicate.
It takes a bit of time for the unit to reach its color temperature settings; hopefully newer units will use LED lighting with no such hesitation.

EPSON Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner
I scanned 2000 family slides - good quality. Quality is good. Need to protect it from dust.
