Verified Purchase
I just got this and have been trying it out. As I surmised, it is identical to the V300 except there is no negative holder in the box. The driver CDROM and all documentation lists both models. I'm using this with Photoshop and Indesign to make personal studies for portrait drawing practice, using art book and magazine images for source material. I was holding my breath to make sure the TIFF file type is included with this version, and it is (in the professional scan mode.) Fabulously smooth images made from ordinary newspaper color ad inserts using only 800 dpi. You can select various destination image types, including up to 48-bit color and up to 12,800 dpi (in professional mode). TIFF files are rather large, but I plan to dump them as soon as I print the cropped images. (After I draw, I no longer need the images.) Of course, also does jpeg format (default) and has a tremendous range of custom formatting before saving, as well as ultra simple 'point and shoot' scanning. Also has customizable presets for home mode (email scanning, etc.) and office mode (RGB value settings, for example). I haven't tried this yet, but it makes PDF files in all but full auto mode, without purchasing Adobe Acrobat, unbelievable. (I have a Fujitsu document scanner that outputs to PDF, but it cost several times more.)

There is the same user selection option for film as a document type as on the V300 so I don't see why you can't scan slides and negatives, using a homemade holder or even just guessing where to position film in the center strip of the scanner bed. I don't plan to scan many film images or I would have gotten the V300, but it was not available for prime shipping. I do have some favorite Velvia slides I will eventually try to scan and see what happens.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Epson V30 does a nice job of combining an easy-to-use scanner for those who don't want to have to tweak - just scan please! - with a scanner that has the bells and whistles for those who want to do more.

I used the scanner to scan photos and documents (as a jpeg and also as a PDF). I did not use the email feature (as it basically uses Outlook and I don't use that email package on my home computer).

Photo Scanning

I tried the Epson with a variety of photos. Photos consisted of several photos of Bryce Canyon in winter (contrast of snow and colors), your basic Grand Canyon photos, a couple of typical people photos (a couple of people standing in a dark room and also photos where the light was more evenly distributed). I also had some photos that had spots in them (black marks in the sky) to test the dust removal option and an old yellowing photo (40+ years old) of a couple to test the color restoration features.

Epson's default mode is Full Auto mode. If you don't have any issues with the photos, don't want to preview them, don't need to change the size and you just want to scan them, use this option. As in all other modes, there's no warm-up needed - photos scan quickly and the Epson does a nice job. By default, all photos are saved in your My Pictures directory. (Select Customize and then select the File Save Settings option to change that - you can also change the default name). You can also use this mode if your photos do have issues (dust marks or need the color restored). Select the Full Auto mode, select Customize, select the options - Dust Removal and/or Color Restoration and even for those photos with issues, you can have the Epson give its best shot. I used this option with my "problem" photos to see how the Epson would do.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I love my Epson Perfection v30 scanner. It replaced a trusty Epson Perfection 2400 Photo that I have had for about 3 years. The quality of scanned images is better with this new scanner, thanks to the higher DPI rating. And, thanks to the new LED scan technology, there is no longer any warm-up time at all and, on top of that, once the scanning starts, It scans faster than my Perfection 2400 Photo. Finally, it is quieter. It is a winner on all three of these counts compared to my old scanner, no doubt.

Plus, at just under 1 ½" high it is less than half as tall as the Perfection 2400 Photo. This, coupled with the fact that the top opens across the width of the scanner as opposed to along the length, means that this scanner works much, MUCH better for me on the wall-mounted shelf in my home office where I like to put a scanner. This alone has me sold on this scanner as a replacement for my old one, which was always a little hard to get to and kind of "clunky" to use on the shelf.

Finally, this scanner works great with both Mac OS X (v10.5.6) & Windows Vista 64-bit (SP1). I have both a Mac & a PC in my office, and I use a USB switch to switch the scanner back and forth between the two systems. The supplied driver works well on both operating systems - the interface is even the same. And, as a bonus, the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software with the strange name (ABBYY FineReader Sprint) that comes included with the scanner works great (Windows only, however - there is no Mac version of this OCR software).

Finally, at the incredibly affordable price being charged for this scanner, I think it is an awesome deal. For anyone with less-than-professional scanning needs who wants a fast, quiet & capable scanner for either Mac OS X or Windows, I cannot recommend this scanner highly enough. I'd give it 6 stars if I could!
