What customers say about "Key Specs"
Epson Perfection 4490 Film Scanner
  • Very good quality for the price. Easy to use.
  • Easy installation, very high quality scans.
  • It is a fast scanner and great quality and the fact you can color correct.
  • Image quality blew my mind the first time I scanned a photo of my wife and I that we had shot by a professional.
  • It produces good quality products. I am quite pleased.
Epson Perfection V600 Flatbed Scanner
  • I've owned a dozen different flatbed scanners and a couple of film scanners. You might be able to get better results from a more expensive scanner, but for the money this Epson V600 is tough to beat. Highly recommended.
  • I have experimented with many different scanning resolutions and found the same thing others did, that if you scan at very high resolutions like 9600 or above and save the files as TIFF, you get a huge file that is high res.

What customers say about "Scanning"
Epson Perfection 4490 Film Scanner
  • I use my 4490 to scan the documents that let me go paperless (receipts, invoices, letters, legal documents etc.).
  • Used for general scanning of documents and old photos. Easy to use.
  • I use this mostly for documents, but it works great for any of my photos.
  • I use it to scan documents and images from books.
  • I use the scanner for old photographs and a variety of other documents.
Epson Perfection V600 Flatbed Scanner
  • First, this unit does a superb job of scanning both slides and film, so that part worked out very well. At first, I scanned at 4800 dpi, but after a bit, realized that 3600 dpi was more than enough resolution for most pictures.
