I am in love with scanner. Very quick scans and easy to use and as a photographer that does do slideshows and photo retouching this scanner has been the perfect cost worthy scanner. Be prepared for any and every defect to show though when scanning, it is so fine that it finds stuff our eyes can not can not see and with my profession it is great, but to a normal user preserving photos you might be surprised...lol. Well worth the money, I should have bought this along time ago instead of dealing with my all-in-one printers for scanning. The scan time on this is remarkable and if you place multiple pictures or document on the bed of the scanner and give them space, the scanner will automatically separate them for you and technically you get 2 or more scans in one, so that is a HUGE plus when time is money for me on this scanner!

I haven't used the new scanner that I just bought for two reasons: 1. All of the installation information was in languages other than English. I got the software installed any way since it was essentially automatic after putting the disk in the drive. 2. there is no instruction manual packed with the scanner to tell how to operate it - at least not in English. I will search online for a manual, but why was it not included for a product sold in the USA. If I cannot find an operation manual online, I will return it to the store where I bought it for a refund and look for another brand of scanner that include English instructions and manual. This is a stupid way to sell technical products. Not everyone is a computer scientist.

Great Scanner

Comments about Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner, 6400 x 6400 dpi:

I have owned an Epson V550 flatbed scanner for a long time. I use it at home to scan LP record covers and other personal art work. when we needed a scanner to back-up images at Mom's house after she died, I was pleased to see that the V550 was still on the market. So now I have another one.

Comments about Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner, 6400 x 6400 dpi:

I bought this scanner because my old one wouldn't work with Windows 10. When I began scanning, the software was on automatic. I had a few problems with that, but then I found the setting for manual. I have been having fun with the scanner ever since. I love the extra wide strip for scanning slides and negatives. I have scanned some older negatives that are large and I have scanned some very small negatives. I can outline the negative so I get the area I want. The software includes an enhancement feature that improves dark negatives and light negatives. I LOVE the scanner. The only change I would make is I would add a strip across the dividers for the slide holder. That way, the slides could be put into the spots and removed while holding the slide holder instead of having to remove them from the scanner glass. I put some strips of removable tape across my slide holder and I am able to put the slides into the slots and remove them while holding the slide holder. That works great. The other features work great, also. I am enjoying experimenting with them. I do wish the power button was closer to the front of the scanner, though.

Worked well once ipdated

Comments about Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner, 6400 x 6400 dpi:

I bought this few months back and hooked up on Nov 7 to my iMac running ElCapitan. It automatically connected and updated. I tried to scan photos and negatives several times and kept getting scanner error . I went to Epson site and down loaded all the drivers and updates only to get same code but then scanner kept turning off. Felt bad and almost wAlked this to trash can.
I gave one last effort and restarted computer and scanner, opened scanner in system preferences and amazing everything worked. Once it connected was very easy to use and scans very well. The manual settings allow to adjust picture but what you see on screen and end result differ, so I left on automatic. Sczns are fairly slow but worth quality image at end. I set mine at 2400dpi after playing with different levels. Overall I would recommend

Able to scan both film and prints. Good quality on the scans. Software is barely functional, but if you understand Epson is a hardware company, then that's to be expected. Recently developed a bad pixel resulting in a black zipper on film scans. Will need to file a warranty claim

Good scans but needs better software

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner, 6400 x 6400 dpi:

My biggest issue is you can't lock in 24x36 mm format for slide and negatives. Scans of low-lighting slides and negatives (such as concert pics) are often cropped for lighting and don't maintain 24x36 formatting. Also a number of instances where Preview picks up scans across two frames. Otherwise excellent sharpness and precise edge-to-edge luminosity (tough challenge for cheaper scanners).

Comments about Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner, 6400 x 6400 dpi:

You simply can't go wrong with Epson products. My scanners and printers have been nothing but Epson for over a decade now and the only reason I get a new one is when the previous one goes beyond repair (from constant use!) The V550 is fast and accurate, quieter with a "sleeker" sound. Can't recommend Epson scanners enough.

Is it the software or the scanner itself that's fantastic?

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner, 6400 x 6400 dpi:

I purchased this scanner mostly to scan slides and film negatives. I had an Epson scanner for this function and wanted to upgrade. The improved software that came with this V550 locates images in a strip of negatives much better than my old version. Or maybe it's the scanner that does that? Either way, I'm very pleased with this purchase.

I had researched a few different scanner for the purpose of scanning in 35mm and 120mm negatives when I found this product it was in my price range and had an output quality that I could be proud of. I would recommend this product.

Scans slides well

Comments about Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner, 6400 x 6400 dpi:

I was able to use the scanner to convert the family slides to digital. The scanner is easy to use and the pictures turn out great! The scanner has now become my filing system. It's wonderful to convert paper to digital! For the two professional credentialing organizations I belong to, continuing education credits need to be submitted every couple years. Scanning these documents and saving them on a flash drive makes this process so much easier!

Great scanner for documents, photos & negatives

By

Comments about Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner, 6400 x 6400 dpi:

I had a previous model -- Epson Photo 3170 -- for years. I loved it and it worked great, but when I got a new Mac a couple years ago, I learned that the Epson Scan software was not compatible and I was told I needed to use the Mac's Image Capture software instead. The quality of my scans went down immediately. I hated using the Image Capture software. I knew the scanner was still great, but because I couldn't use the Epson software that came with it, I had to compromise scan quality and endlessly manipulate scanned images after scanning them using Image Capture. Finally, I got fed up and bought this new Epson scanner. SO much happier. I can use the new Epson Scan software and my scans look to be as good or better than what I used to get from my previous Epson scanner. I'm told the resolution is higher, but I haven't been able to tell the difference yet. All I know is the scans look MUCH better than what I got when I was stuck using the Image Capture software. I wish Epson had issued an updated version of the Epson Scan that would work with that older scanner. But I guess then they wouldn't have gotten me to purchase the new one. I'm happy with what I got. Scanned some old negatives today and they look really good. The only downside I found was that the older scanner had a compartment in the scanner lid for storing one of the negative trays. The new scanner doesn't have that, though they did combine two of the previous trays into one.

Very good photo scanner

By

Comments about Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner, 6400 x 6400 dpi:

I purchased this scanner to digitize thousands of photos. The scanner is easy to use and the software is fairly good. I like that I can put multiple photos on the scanner bed at one time. The software will take each photo and put it in its own file. It will do that most of the time. Sometimes it doesn't work that way. At times it will put all of the photos into the same file. I have to rearrange all of the photos or remove some of them to make it work properly. Other features are great. Resoulition, color management, and light exposure are very good. Overall I feel this scanner is very good. I would purchase it again.

I bought this a couple of months ago. I have an Epson 4640 connected to the iMAC and when I went to add this device, it would not add all the features unless I removed the printer setup. I tried getting help on line.

It does a manual scan and it the optics are terrific. I would recommend this for any person archiving. The slide and negative adapters are easy to understand and use.
