Epson V300 Photo

I can only give five stars when I have a comparison with my use of another scanner--but I strongly suspect such a comparison would not change my opinion of this one. I am delighted, and it exceeds all my expectations. Therefore, four stars and probably five.

I had two purposes for a scanner: My primary function is to preserve long out of print and often rare history and theological texts, making them available to other scholars and researchers-- thus, it had to be a flatbed. The second was to preserve and share old photos.

Twenty four hours ago I purchased this unit, led to this choice by reviews, and finally deciding based upon the LED scanning technology, the portability, the price and the bundled software. It cost me twenty dollars more (one hundred total) for the V300 which I believe is the same as the V30 except the V300 has the inclusion of the 35mm film and slide holding frame which I think could be of use to me.

I don't know why they use the terms they do for the modes of use. They ought to be: Photo mode, Text mode, Auto mode and Professional mode. Instead, Photo is called "Home", Text is called, "Office", Auto and Professional are what you would think. The menus are otherwise intuitive, but you can (as I did) read the manual if you want.

I started with photos. 300 dpi resolution is sufficient for all of my needs, but I tried 1200 to see what it would do. Using 1200 is 400% of original, and using that setting, and zooming in using common photo software, the detail was far beyond my expectations--almost like a crime movie zooming in on the subject's glasses to see the reflection of the photographer. Almost.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Over the years I have been through several scanners both at work and at home. This Epson V300 is the latest home scanner for me.

Speed: Back then a high resolution scanner was like 600dpi and required a SCSI connection in order to transfer that amount of information in reasonable amount of time. Thankfully, these days USB2 is ubiquitous and relatively high speed, so the bottleneck is really no longer at the connection nor the scanner. Instead, I found that I am usually CPU bounded because of all the image processing that happens *after* the data has been transfered to my computer. After all, 4800x9600dpi is a lot of information to go through. So yes, it can give you a slow scanning experience, but it's not the scanner's problem at all. I also note this scanner use an LED lighting source, the warmup time is about three seconds. This is much shorter than the older CFL scanners that can take a minute or two to warm up.

Scanning quality: This is top-notch, especially given the price. I've seen results from much more expensive scanners including an high-end scanner from HP. At 1200dpi, which is a common setting for my workflow, I don't detect any material differences in the images, which is a good sign. If anything, the tiny difference is in the optical performance, most likely due to the coating on the glass that separates the document and the sensor. In particular, I do see a bit more chromatic aberration. However, this is something that can be corrected in software and I believe it is present in all scanners.

Software: Having been an HP user for so long, I find the Epson Scan utility to be adequate and I actually like it better than HP's offering. It has all the features that I expect.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Coming from an (admittedly older) Canon LIDE scanner and the scanner in my Canon Pixma MX850 Office All-In-One Printer, LED scanning isn't whiz-bang new technology to me. And frankly, I wasn't expecting to put either scanner out to pasture.

But Epson has proven me wrong with the V300.

One of the biggest pains in scanning images for me, has been waiting for the scanner to warm up, and for the driver to accept that the scanner is warmed up and actually let me scan something. With the V300, you tell it to scan, and it just does. I can't stress how surprised I was to find how such a relatively minor thing made scanning seem like less of a chore.

The quality is excellent, too. Admittedly, my previous scanners were designed with basic home use in mind, however, there really is a noticeable difference in quality, even when I did side-by-side comparisons at the same resolutions.

Getting the scanner to work with my Mac wasn't a problem, either. Pop in the disc, run the installer, and connect the scanner. Next thing I knew, Photoshop CS3 was ready to use it. One thing I really have to say here, is that Epson's scanner drivers blow Canon's out of the water, if you ever pay attention to your Mac's log files. The Epson driver isn't constantly spawning messages to the syslog (or just plain breaking) if you use the scanner on a single computer with multiple users logged in.

The only downside with this (or really any other consumer-grade scanner) is that high-res scans take quite a while. Not quite "go to another room and make yourself breakfast" slow, but you certainly have time to go get yourself a cup of coffee while you wait for an 8x10" photo to scan at high-res. However, the quality of the scan makes the wait worthwhile.

At this price, and with this kind of speed and quality, you really can't go wrong.
