I found it works really well with my Mac and Image Capture, the utility app that comes with all Macs. That way I bypassed the Epson scanner app that came with the scanner. By using Image Capture I can adjust resolution and select whatever area I choose to scan. It works flawlessly! BUT, be sure to go to the Epson website and download the "fix-it" update for Image Capture.
Now to the scanning of old negatives and film slides. WOW! it works great with film slides (I don't have any negatives to try scanning those). I used the Epson scanning software for this. It scans 4 slides at once. Some other reviewers complained about the the resolution being not so good. Apparently they didn't figure out that resolution can be ADJUSTED! Epson offers 3 modes with their software: Home, Business, and Pro. When scanning slides I used the Home set. Here are my settings:
Document type: Positive Film (Slides are usually NOT negative picture)
Image Type: Color:
Destination: Other (allows you to set resolution)
Resolution: 400 dpi (Any more takes too long to scan, any less the picture looks fuzzy)
Target size: 4x6
Do NOT use color restoration. The pics can be adjusted much easier in other applications.
I've already scanned hundreds of pics. Once you do a few, you will get into a groove.
DOWNSIDE: The scanning of 4 pictures using the above method takes about 6 minutes. Find a good book to read while you wait and if you have hundreds of slides, be prepared to spend your evenings scanning:)
UPSIDE: Totally worth the money. I highly recommend the Epson V330 scanner!
The V330 is no exception. The build quality of the scanner is rock solid with no feeling of flexibility or weak joints. The quality of the scans is superb, even when scanning something small at higher resolutions. And the accompanying software allows for excellent flexibility. This is also one of the least expensive units you'll find that can do slides and film. And it does those with the same aplomb as other scans. That's the five star side of things.
Where we lose stars first is the bulk of the thing. Maybe there's a good reason for it, better motors, larger CCD, I don't know. But I feel like these days an 8.5x11 scanner should be thinner, more compact. And that's not counting the lid, I realize that has to be thicker than average to accommodate another light. Whatever the reason, this is a bit of a desk hog. The second lost star is for speed. Not much to say here, it's a little slow. On higher res scanning, a slow down is expected, but it's slow for average stuff. If you're just doing one or two things, no big deal, you'll be fine. But if you've got 3000 slides you inherited from your grandfather to scan, be sure to pack a lunch.
Overall I'd say that if you need a scanner that can do slides and film but can't drop coin on one of the more professional models, then you really can't beat this. Even a unit twice as pricey won't really offer anything twice as good.
The holder for the negatives is extremely complicated to load and flimsy, so I wonder when it is going to break on me. Generally the construction appears shoddy, but that's something we should get used to with all electronic products. My old Epson scanner had a much better slide holder and felt much sturdier, but didn't last that long either, while a 10+ year old USB-powered Canon still works OK.
The design is ridiculous, with the USB and power inputs at the FRONT of the right side. Doesn't anybody in Epson have any common sense? Or don't they care? I ended up placing the scanner backwards. I never use the buttons anyway (incidentally, the old Epson had a mechanical on-off switch, this has an electronic one and turns on by itself when I power up my computer - I hate it).
But the reason for my 2 stars: I was scanning just the second set of negatives when the scanner started adding a thick magenta line in all the images! (if you read the reviews, at least two more people had the same issue, so it is a defect of the scanner, not just my bad luck). Sometimes the line became fainter, sometimes it turned green, but it was always there.
I decided to return the scanner to Amazon (it was within the period I could return it for free and get a replacement at no cost), but I wanted some info first so I contacted the customer service. Even though I had not asked for return/replacement yet, only some info, their answer included a return label and shipping instructions! And because I needed some more clarifications, they sent me (with apologies) the replacement with 2nd day air before I had even shipped the defective unit (I returned it yesterday, with the new one already received). So I have nothing but praise for Amazon's service.
As for the new scanner? I was scanning the third STRIP (from the first set) of negatives when lo and behold the magenta line reappeared (in a different position, naturally). I rescanned and the line was gone, and the next two strips were scanned without any lines. So I hope it was only a temporary hiccup... but at this point in the life of my first scanner, the line had not even appeared yet. So I am not optimistic. But I cannot keep returning defective scanners for replacement... I will keep it and hope that the magenta line will be a rare occurence. But I am disgusted with Epson for making and selling such an inferior product. Naturally, I will think very hard before buying another Epson product.
Apart from the magenta line, the scanned images are quite decent, that's why I didn't give only 1 star. The scanning is slow and the settings cannot be saved in their entirety (I can save the resolution but not the image manipulation instructions like unsharp mask etc.), and the instructions are not very clear, but these don't bother me much. I have not scanned a document yet, nor tried any of the included software (I don't expect much, it was free after all), so I don't have an opinion about these.
(A FEW MONTHS LATER): Since I wrote my initial review I have done a fair amount of scanning. I scanned documents, too, and I had no problems with them. When scanning negatives, though, I still get an occasional magenta line, but until now it always goes away if I scan again. So I have kept the second scanner. But this has not changed my low opinion of the product.
