Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanner
quality is not acceptable
I own this machine for 3 years and only used it under hundreds times. I didn't find it's scanning quality much better than your necessary but the mechanical problem were really bather me. Even reality was not matching cheaper regular scanner.

The V700 seems to be a nice piece of hardware and the software allows for good quality scans to image files, but it will absolutely not produce a pdf. It will scan a document, a note appears reminding me that producing a searchable PDF require higher resolution, but when you dismiss the note the Epson Scan program closes. I've searched for a newly created pdf file, but it doesn't exist. The File Save Settings the user manual promises never appears.

iMac and V700
Its been a year since I upgraded to an iMac from a PC and my old V700 works really well. I'm using Epson's 3.81US driver. As I recall there was some confusion about which driver to use but it became clear after a bit of research and a few false starts. Well worth the effort.

software that comes with v700
I didn't think you would like my review. But I have to buy some software to make it work. After all the money I spent on the scanner and the software won't work on my IMAC is disappointing.

Great Product Except...
The scanner itself is a marvelous product and will serve me well. I am NOT happy about the software that was bundled with it. The Adobe Photoshop Elements does not work on my Windows7 machine.

Perfection V700 - out of date out of the box
I have recently purchased the Perfection V700.
I told the salesman I was a Mac user and was told everything will be fine.
I have been busy, so tonight I finally opened the box and there is flyer for Mac 10.7+ users - go to this support website, which I duly did.
The downloads on offer for 10.8 are and I quote: "Sorry there are no matching downloads for the Epsom Perfection V700 Photo".
Boy am I annoyed.

i have two Perfection V500, one Perfection V750 and have just received a new Perfection V700 used for slide, photo and document digitizing. Have processed about 38,000 slides and several thousand photos with no malfunction of Epson equipment. New V700 software easily installed and unit put into production with no problems within the hour after Fed Ex delivery.

Advanced Scanner, but...
With over a couple hundred slides and color pictures, I now can appreciate a bit more the performance of this scanner. Slowly but surely, I am digitalizing 25 years + imagery. The only thing missing for me is 1. an adjustable plastic bracket to better work with no longer standard pictures, and 2. a paper instruction booklet vs the online versus which is time consuming.
Still happy with this purchase.
