There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My initial setup failed and normal troubleshooting didn't help, so I called their support line. It was a VERY pleasant experience. The woman I spoke with (immediately - zero time on hold) didn't waste my time with verification - reading off serial numbers of whatever - and although I didn't ask where she was located she was absolutely 100% understandable. I let her connect to my computer with TeamViewer and she reinstalled the software, restarted my computer, etc. It still didn't work. Then she suggested I try a different USB port - which somehow did the trick. Total call time was 15 minutes : Spectacular.
As a Mac user, I prefer to scan with Image Capture - but it doesn't even see this scanner. The only options appear to be the Plustek software or using TWAIN. But I guess because there's no preview, that makes sense. The software itself is OK. It works in a pretty unique way for scanner software. When you scan images they are accumulated in RAM, and are not written to disk unless / until you "save" them. For my Mac with 16GB, I get around 50 or 60 photos done before I get the warning about memory and have to save.
The auto rotate and de-skew works very well most of the time, including on the unevenly cut prints I pulled out of albums. A couple of times I've gotten some weird artifacts, and it sometimes incorrectly crops dark backgrounds.But overall it's a good thing not having to make sure you feed the photos in 100% parallel.
There's no internal color correction option - at least not automatically - so if you want to modify anything, you're doing it in your editor of choice. Other scanners I've used do a great job, and I'd appreciate having that option. But I can live with uncorrected images that maintain the 70s patina of early color film.
Edited to add : After scanning a couple thousand photos, I must report that the Mac software (both 32 and 64 bit versions) is "pretty flakey." When powered off or otherwise disconnected, the pairing issues I experienced initially can return and sometimes it takes me a bunch of flailing to fix the problem. I am extremely confident my computer's USB ports are functioning - I've never had any problem with my numerous other devices. I've tried multiple cables, so I don't think that's an issue. I'm almost positive this is the result of Plustek's software. Hopefully they will update from "22.214.171.124 (1697)" soon and fix this hassle.

The hardware is well designed and feels well built. Photos were not bent or harmed by passing through the scanner. I was surprised that the scanner could manage photos printed on 4mm thick card – with some assistance to feed them through.
Where the Plustek ePhoto Z300 falls down, is the software for macOS.
Getting the scanner to work initially was fiddly enough that I considered returning the product as broken on arrival. The faults lay in the software.
The macOS software is a bad conversion from Windows and suffers for it. Mentions of Windows remain within the user interface. The interface is far from Mac user friendly, crashes occasionally, requires relaunching every so many photos, and is in need of further development. This is all with the latest version downloaded from the Plustek web site.
The scanner does not appear as a scanner in macOS. You can not use this device with macOS's Image Capture. This is regrettable as you are entirely dependent on Plustek supporting the device each time macOS is updated.
I would not use this device for daily or regular scanning on macOS.
Yet, despite the macOS software, I would recommend the ePhoto Z300 as a means of scanning large numbers of photos. You will get the scanning done but you may not enjoy it.
The main weakness is the software, it's obviously not top quality (at least on Mac OSX) since it's rather clunky and has a number of bugs. I did try it on a Win 7 laptop but the screen was too poor to judge any corrections, so I am using it on a Mac with a colour calibrated screen.
The worst bug is that the software will scan up to the max of 60 pics, then you work through processing them and then it refuses to save them. So you restart the software and recall the whole batch. I now restart the software after each batch of 60 and the problem has gone away.
The software tools (mostly only using the white balance correction myself) can be brilliant or really poor, you just have to try on each photo and then undo if the effect is bad. The quality of some of the tools (ie the effect on the photo) is often very severe and coarse and renders many of the tools unusable (I'm used to using Lightroom for my DSLR hobby photos). So I only make very minimal tweaks - which is fine anyway because I have about 10,000 prints to scan and I don't have the time to tweak each one - after all they are mostly snaps and not worth the effort.
It's a good idea to occasionally lift the scanning cover and clean off the glass otherwise the auto-cropping feature (which otherwise works superbly) starts to leave black spaces at the top and bottom.
You have to learn a little bit from experience to avoid the bugs, but once done you can wizz through. I've done about 3,000 scans in a couple of days (after learning how to deal with the software issues).
The outcome is that the scanner IS good enough if you just want to store photos digitally so you have them for the future and save on storage space. I would not expect to print the scans in high quality in future or use it for critical or important photos or professionally. So for private casual use, it's brilliant value.
If you have a significant volume of older prints then this is a must
It transformed a job that would have taken 89 days at 3 hours per day with the scanner on my printer, into job that took a long weekend.
Once photos are on digital format backing up, sending and sharing is easy.
This product is easy to set up and easy to use.
I think that for most folks that simply want to scan older photos, this is ideal, and the tools to enhance the photos are fine, however I am sure that a professional such as my Brother (Colin Prior) way wish higher standards, but for me the quality is more than adequate.
Once scanned I can start fully sorting out and thinning out, so rather than looking at the photos and deciding whether to retain and scan I just scanned as it really does only take 2 seconds per photo to scan.
Would thoroughly recommend this as a product.
Buyers might like to note that the scanning bar does tilt backwards and away from scanning plane thus allows the simple removal of the packaging materials.
If you don’t do this you first few scans might not work due to packaging jam. It’s not mentioned in the quick start guide. Worth knowing though.
