Scanning speeds are as fast as 11 msec/line, while one-touch scan, copy, scan to e-mail, and scan to web buttons help you automate these frequently utilized features. The built-in 35mm film strip adapter accommodates both negatives and slides (up to six negatives or four slides), while the 8.5-by-11.7-inch scanning bed supports originals up to letter size. A number of software applications help you get the most out of your scans, including Adobe Photoshop Elements, Epson Smart Panel with NewSoft OCR (optical character recognition software), and Epson TWAIN Scanning software.
Weighing just 6.8 pounds, the 2400 has a small 10.9-by-17.7-inch footprint and connects to your computer via its USB port. The 2400 utilizes a white cold cathode fluorescent lamp and Epson's MatrixCCD line sensor, and consumes 17 W of power. PC and Mac compatible, the 2400 also comes backed with a one-year limited warranty on both parts and labor.

CONS: I scanned about 400+ 35mm slides and notice that the software is a little buggy.
1. Sometimes after a scan when I would go to switch to the save/view window, the window would not popup and I had to scan again.
2. After scanning multiple slides about 50 I went to save them and got a "not enough disc space error". I didn't have the option to make space, it just exited out and I lost all my work.
3. Sometimes scanning a few slides it wouldn't properly align the borders. I had to rescan or scan one by one.
However, scan resolution is sufficient to make brilliant 8x10 prints from 35mm negatives/slides. The included Epson software leaves a little to be desired -- it won't, for example, install on an alternative partition on your disk. Also, you will certainly have to use a photo manipulation application to tweak the levels and colour curves before you get your pictures right. But spend a little time to learn how your scanner works, and you'll have smashing pictures in a short time.
If you're adept at working image manipulation programs (Photoshop Elements 1.1 (not the new 2.0) is included with this product; but I have been happier with the freely available GIMP), you'll have professional scans at a fraction of what it used to cost not so long ago.
The scanner has done a fine job of scanning regular prints as well.
Most people I've talked to on message boards and such told me that flatbed scanner don't do that great of a job on negative. Well, I've scanned a bunch of negatives and they look excellent. I'm sure that the increase to 2400dpi helps a ton. Most cheaper dedicated film scanners don't have that much higher of a resolution.
I've printed some 4x6, 5x7, and 8x10 prints and they look pretty darn good. I think the only problems with the prints have to do with the color and I'm sure it has to do with the old printer I'm using.
I would highly recommend the Epson 2400 to any "pro-sumer" on a budget.
I was really impressed with one scan in particular. It was a portrait that was taken outside in the snow. The original print was quite washed out and you could not see a lot of detail. But on the negative scan, I got all the detail and with a little bit of color correction, it made for a beautiful print. If I would have scanned the print instead, it would not have even come close.
I'm quite happy.
My intended use for the Perfection 2400 was primarily as a high quality photo scanner and hopefully good quality negative/slide scanner (it's usually better to scan negatives if you have them, and have a scanner capable of it). My tests have shown this model far more capable with photo prints than negatives - the sharpness is not quite there on negatives, even with the resolution set to maximum (2400 dpi - the scanner will let you select higher resolutions, but they're obviously interpolated). Yes, I've made sure the emulsion side is facing the scanner. There is no available focus adjustment, and this may be the problem (this is one of the features you pay for in a dedicated film scanner, or high-end flatbed). Annoyingly, the negative attachment likes to move around on the glass simply from the vibration from the scan motor - I have to tape it down to the side of the scanner to keep it in place. Worse, the scanner driver (even the latest version from Epson's web site) does not support multisampling (scanning the same image multiple times to reduce random noise), so to get the best quality scans you will need to purchase an external program that's capable of it.Read more ›
