Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner
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.

From a V500 to a V600 Photo Scanner
My V500 Scanner is perfectly OK but in any event I bought the V600 anticipating the same excellent results with faster response time. It met those expectations. While I have not yet run it through all it's paces, their may be more pleasant surprises to come.
There are still a few simple opportunities for improvements. The issues remain about the same when compared with the V500. They are:
* Make the User Guide fully printable from the start to avoid having to separately print each section.
* Increase the size of the Button Icons and also Illuminate them.
* The Software Menus should be better connected and more intuitive.
Those changes will make an excellent scanner outstanding.

Performance on iMac
The DVD said it was from Japan. I bought it at Apple on line, delivered today, with my expectation that it would make my family history work faster and easier than the equipment I have now. It is the same kind of issue the old Windows products had before Steve Jobs made computer life a joy. It is just too much hassle for the money. Very poorly documented and the won't even allow the Guide Book to be downloaded or burnt to a DVD to examine more closely. I'd say it was my computer's fault but I have old DOS computers stashed in our hone commuter "grave yard." The attraction is the pixel count sound fantastic. but getting it to recognize itself is not going to be my job. I have too much to do to pay for someone else's fun with bugs.

Nice but needs More
I got my new photo V600 Photo Scanner-followed the instructions to install the software turned it on and......................NOTHING!!!!!!
I then got on the internet using google and uploaded the new driver and everything worked out! I would like a larger "control center" while it is on! and I haven't gotten it to e-mail a scan yet but I am sure I will figure it out!! The hardware looks and acts great just a more complete package would be better

It does a great job scanning slides and photos. I have scanned over 2000 slides.

Don't buy if you have OS X Mavericks
I just ordered this machine from Epson and they have not upgraded their CD Rom software for Mavericks OS. I downloaded a new driver, yet every few scans that I perform, the software crashes and I have to reinstall.

Slide and Negative Scanner
I have used this scanner to convert old color slides and all sizes of negatives, both color and b&w with great results. I only wish it was a faster process, as I have literally thousands more to do.

V600 and slides to backup disc
I think the Epson Perfection V600 may be perfect for print-pictures (great quality) but old slides are problematic by not always centering an image… can't figure it out since the other 3 may scan beautifully. Need a feature that clearly indicates SLIDE to hard drive (or Photoshop file).
OR need the workaround.
Would recommend the quality.

Just received the V600 directly from Epson, a refurbished unit. I have purchased other refurbished equipment with no problems and this is no exception. It is as new as it gets, could not find and issue with any thing. Received it directly from Epson, very quick delivery.
I spent a whole day trying every feature on Windows 8.1. No cliches, extremely quick, faster then I had expected. Scan docs to 300dpi pdf with OCR in seconds. Very happy with the purchase, both in value and features.
