So far, the unit has worked flawlessly. Software installed cleanly on first try. Front panel buttons can be reprogrammed for other than the default (e.g., I changed the button for email attachment to launch the OCR to text software included.)
A tip for those who buy this unit for slide and/or film scanning with ICE and scanning 2-4 slides at a time: Click the "All" button in the preview window after prescanning (previewing) the multiple slides to select all slides, then click the checkbox for ICE to insure that all slides are processed by ICE. You won't find this in the documentation or on Epson's website. I spent time figuring out why all 4 slides weren't being processed by ICE (I thought the unit was defective at first because only the first slide, which is selected by default, was being processed by ICE), so now you know without spending the time I did. I have used the scanner for photographs and documents, and have converted articles to editable text, all with no problems and excellent results. Still, slides/film is where it shines, thanks to ICE.
I did a lot of research into image scanners, and chose this Epson model over several others. Epson, has much better image resolution quality than products from their competitors. This unit allows you to choose 35mm color print or slide film, or even some of the medium format versions like 680 film. However, it does a magnificent job on various sized prints.
Moreover, I also loved the fact this model came with Adobe editing software, to help enhance some of the images that have become faded or damaged over the years. Some really faded photographs from the 1950s, look like they were shot yesterday on a digital camera. I really feel this scanner was a wise investment, and with over 10,000 images that I have been scanned, it's still going strong. I highly recommend it.
I've scanned a variety of photograph prints with it, including some very old black and white prints for genealogy purposes. The quality is excellent. The software is intuitive and easy to use, and works great on the Mac. It's easy to select just a portion of the image to scan. The scanner is very quiet when scanning, you can hear it, but it's not too loud.
When scanning slides, there's a special tray insert you install in the scanner, that holds four slides. It positions them accurately so the scanner can locate them, and correctly scan just the photographic content. You also need to remove the padded surface on the lid of the scanner, so the light can pass through the slide when it is being scanned. Using the supplied software, you specify the format and scan quality (resolution) you want. It then scans all four slides, and produces a separate JPEG image file for each slide. Easy! I've been (slowly) going through lots of Kodak carousels of slides my father took back in the 1950s through the 1970s. Even with these old slides, the resulting quality of the scanned images is very good. It does take several minutes to scan each set of slides, so it is not a quick procedure. It's a good activity to do while you're already at the computer doing something else. There is also the ability to scan negatives, but I have never tried that, so I can't comment on it.
I've also scanned a variety of paper documents with it, both color and black and white, and it works fine for that as well. All in all, I have been extremely satisfied with this scanner.
