Epson Perfection V370 Photo Scanner
Only had it for bout a week but, it is doing a nice job. I think this version, with the ability to do slides, is quite a bargain at the price.
There is one down side. I was hoping that software had advanced to the point where it could correct the distorted pages at the spine when scanning a book. I also thought there would be a correction to straighten out cockeyed pages. But, all in all it is doing a good job.

Epson V370 Photo Scanner
I purchased this scanner a few months ago at staples. I have used it a few times and had good results. I would recommend this item for purchase.

Great for slides
First - the problem with using - maybe you did what I did - the holder clips onto the side of the screen, not in the storage bit when actually scanning (doh!!). This scanner is great for old slides once you stop being an idiot - always wanted to do something with them (30 years plus old - the slides - I'm much older). Would recommend this to anyone for this usage alone.

I can't seem to do this. Can't find step by step directions. I've followed the directions I CAN find. Anyone know step by step directions?

Epson V370 Scanner
This is a great scanner and with an excellent price.
And because nobody seems to write about it, I've used it to sample the depth of field (DOF) of about 3/4 inch so far. It may go further. So it works great to capture 3D (three dimensional) objects. Just the way my old Epson Perfection 2450 did. It scans 2x2 slides with no problem and I'm sure it will do film and prints very nicely too. I miss the old 2450, but this V370 is much more compact and the cover opens from the side rather than the end.
Also a note on connecting to a computer running Windows 7 or maybe all computers. I had a problem getting the computer to recognize the scanner. I was using a USB extension cable. Seems this is a no-no. I removed it and plugged the scanner directly into the computer and everything worked, like magic. I'm sure it's the ferrite beads at each end of the cable that stop noise passing through the cable did the trick. So just use the cable supplied and it'll work fine.
So there it is. A great quality, budget priced scanner with great DOF and it does Widows too! I recommend this to all photo hobbyists or anyone who needs a scanner for any use.

My main reason for purchasing this unit is to scan photos and slides. I have had unit for about two weeks and it works very well. I'm still learning may of the functions, but I expect it will do well for my needs.

Does not work with Windows 7
This may be an excellent scanner, but it does not work with the Windows 7, even though the install disk indicates that it should. I tried for 4 hours following instructions/downloads from support website and other suggested fixes found online and only became very frustrated. I returned the scanner the next day. It looks like the product might work fine for XP users, but who has XP anymore!

Clearly, quick and 180 degree open!
I just received my v370 today and scanned my textbooks and documents...It was awesome!
I used perfection V600 before and it is comparable to V370. One thing I recommend V370 is i can scan it with 180 degree. That is, unlike V600's 90 degree only, V370 is more flexible so that I can flat my think textbooks on the plane.
