Epson V370 scanner
I have only tried the simple stuff so far and seems to work OK. I am very disappointed in the sketchy instruction manual. Have looked all over online for a more detailed instruction book. I would like more detailed instructions about how to use the slide and negative scannering features and how to scan muiltiple photos well. . Seems like I wil lhave do the trial and error thing.

Previously we had Epson V300 Photo Scanner, it quit after 4 or 5 yrs. Would not have Epson V370 Photo operating had it not been for Gene, Ref #131115-002996 - he got us scanning PDF documents with his patience, understanding, and helpful instructions. Epson scanners are easy to use, work great, and see no reason to have a super deluxe model for home use, this works just fine.

Epson V370 Photo Scanner
I have scanned more than 200 35mm photo slides into my computer with this photo scan without any problems. I also like the fact that I could scan between one and four slides at a time. The resolution was very good since these were relatively old slides.

I have about 5,000 slides that I am digitizing and storing on my Windows 8 PC. So far I have done so for more than 800 in three weeks. It takes approximately 4 minutes for 4 slides, including previewing, modifying if necessary and adding a filename if I want to.
This device also makes excellent copies of literature and magazine articles. I have copied and enlarged to scale some plans that were too small. This saved me a lot of time trying to manually copy the plans to graph paper.
I have copied pictures and emailed successfully. The manual instructions are provided on disc and easy to read and understand.

When I began shopping for a photo scanner, my first intention was to use it to archive my old family photos by scanning in negatives and slides. Scanners like this can be expensive and full of more options than I needed. Epson has the most affordable range of photo scanners for hobbyists as well as professionals and the product quality is excellent. With a bit of creative trial and error, I was even able to scan in other film formats such as 126mm and 110mm.
I like the wide range of image quality options and the ability to scan directly to an email or create a PDF saves so much time. The Scan-n-Stitch software that comes with the scanner has inspired many new family projects. We can now scan and share the kids and my larger artwork through email or social networks. I also like the upload option enabling me to stitch my digital photos into panoramas without having to scan in prints first. I can now back up important files like over-sized legal documents too. This product gives me room to grow in my hobbies as well as managing my family's important paperwork. Thanks Epson!

Scanner performs as promised!
Super-easy set-up and use for documents and photos, haven't tried filmstrips, negatives or slides yet. Photo scan quality is excellent, accurate color and grayscale reproduction, just as sharp as the original is. I scanned some old photos as a test and am very happy with the results. Docs also, good as it gets with a consumer product. The OCR software is perfect for my needs, a welcome added bonus. I like the Scan to PDF button and fast, straightforward responses. Also like that the storage space for the slide and filmstrip accessories is neatly hidden within the scanner, so all is together for any media I want to scan. Online instruction book is clear and direct.

Epson Perfection V370 Photo Scanner
Bought this a few weeks ago to transfer my old slides to digital. I can't say enough about how well this works. I scan in the background while I'm doing my work and the scanner does its job seamlessly. I use some fairly high settings 4800 dpi and the image quality is excellent. I have been using a lot of my scanned images as my desktop background and it fills a 23" monitor nicely.
For the fun of it, I also scanned negatives and it works great for that too (though I have so many slides to do, negatives will have to wait). I also checked it for scanning pictures and it works well for that also.
Bottom line, this scanner is a great way to turn a negative into a positive. And, a positive still remains a positive. Highly recommend this scanner to anyone who is looking for an efficient and not too costly way to convert old slides and negatives into beautiful digital images.

This scanner has one major flaw for my use. The lid is hinged in the rear on the long side of the scanner, and the reference arrow is on the right front of the bed. Trying to scan the left page of a magazine makes the folded-up page sit right against the hinge of the lid, so it shifts when the lid gets closed. I can flip it around and use the inside of the bed as the side of the page I want vertical, but then I have to preview every page before the scan to make sure it is vertical and invert it as necessary.
My Epson 3490 was hinged at the short side in the back, and the reference arrow was on the left front. The magazine is farthest from the hinge with little interference from the cover.
Once the page dimensions were set up in the preview, all the other pages were easy to scan without previewing, and I could invert them after the scan was finished, before I committed it to pdf.
Otherwise, the scan speed and quality is the same for V370 and 3490; very good.

Fast, Great quality
The speed and quality surpassed my expectations. I especially appreciated the 4-slot 35 MM slide scanner tool. Just wish that a larger capacity tool or auto feed accessory was available.
