This scanner is simply outstanding. The resolution is perfection. The best feature of the Epson V33 photo scanner is the ability to scan documents into a "pdf" file. I recently scanned a 23 page document, saved it as a pdf, and e-mailed it as an attachment; and you don't have to buy Adobe Acrobat to do it. Not having to wait for a "warm-up" is a real bonus too. This scanner is a Winner! The only negative feature is the fact that Epson located the power and interface connectors at the front-right side of the scanner (by the buttons) instead of the rear of the unit.
