Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner
Emphasis on "Pro"
First, the cons: Read the specs on this machine before considering it. This is NOT a cheap home-grade scanner. It takes up a lot of space, and to do the job properly you need some horsepower in your computer.
Now for the pros: My scanner is has at least 8 hard years under it and it is still going strong.I have used this to scan everything from color slides (12 at a time) and negatives to LP album covers, and even sheet music. It can scan legal size documents, and by easily unhinging the top, even over thick items such as books. It does the job quite well, indeed.
You will need some additional photo editing programs to take advantage of the scanner.
Most people would find this scanner an overkill, but for me it is worth it all.

will not start
When I press the start button the V700 makes a series of ratcheting sounds then the start button flashes red. I turn it off. if it would turn on I would know if it works. Until then it remains an inert and beautiful hunk of equipment taking up a sizable portion of my work space.

If you're a MAC user, prepare for a nightmare when you're setting up this scanner. EPSON is great, all other SW is great...but SilverFast...is a nightmare. I you don't have a DVD/CD drive, you're in for a frustrating, time consuming nightmare. Everything about installing SilverFast says "1990's". You would think that for a photo scanner, geared towards the photo scanning community...aka artists/photographers...most of whom use MACs...and that DVD/CD drives are really old school...they'd have the install process geared towards on-line/download. They don't. So, you WILL be asked OVER and OVER and OVER to install the DVD....and you will bog down with SilverFast. By far the WORST part of an otherwise fantastic EPSON product.

I must congrats Epson to introduce a truly professional scanner. I have used for scanning colour transparencies, colours negatives and reflection copies. I found much better sharpe ness with oil mounted transparencies and negatives, rather better than most expensive drum scanners. Colour appears very near to original exposure with epson software. There is no picture noise at all even from negatives. I am useing it for large photo prints as well as for offset and digital printing inputs.

Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner
The V750-M has been a great aid in scanning my B&W and Color negatives & transparencies. The Epson software is easy and simple to use and does a good job making corrections if needed, but also delivers good scans without any adjustments.
I only wish that the film holders had micro adjustments to ensure that I'm getting the sharpest, highest resolution scans possible. It would also be helpful if a better less troublesome fluid was provided for the scans on glass.
I'm generally very pleased with the scanner and I think it is a good machine for the money. I've talked to other photographers and they have views similar to my own.
Will Epson produce film holders with micro-adjustments and will they provide a less messy fluid for glass scans?

I find it works quite well and I think it produces excellent scans.

A supurb productivity scanner
Have used the V750 Pro in scanning over 2500 slides. Teamed with SilverFast Ai Studio 8 I can now scan, correct and enhance 12 slides and automatically send to Adobe Lightroom for any finish touches. This has cut the time to process 36 slides in half for me. I was using an Epson V600 before.
One caveat, the included SilverFast Ai 6 does not run under Windows 8. This made it so I had to upgrade to Ai studio 8.
I would buy this scanner at any time and highly recommend it to anyone needing a scanning productivity booster.

WOW! Amazing Product!!
I am trying to organize old family photos that go back nearly forty years, and many of the pictures are gone, but I still have the negatives. First, I scanned a portrait---and the result was nothing short of amazing!! Next, I snapped negatives into the holder and scanned those---and WOW!! I now have excellent digital images of the photos from the negatives! I have not even used the enhamncement software, and the outcome was nothing short of remarkable. HIGHLY Recommend!

Firstly, I have a V700, NOT a V750. Just received it today. Very easy setup. Beautiful photo scan. Hope it continues.
