Best Scanner yet !8/30/2010
Epson may not know how to make a printer that uses compatible cartridges but they sure know how to make a fantastic scanner. The V30 is a great little scanner in every sense. Thanks Epson Rich
Good value for the dollar8/24/2010
My Canoscan 30 took care of me for many years but I really like the Epson V30 on Win7. My needs are moderate: scan to PDF, mostly. On that note, the software lets you keep scanning as it combines the scans into a single PDF. Nice. I have software to do that manually but this is quicker. As to the ABBY OCR package, it, too, does a good job for my needs. Overall: Two thumbs up!
Scans great, control layout poor4/28/2009
I bought this because it opens from the side when it sits on a shelf above my PC. What I didn't know was how the lid opened in relation to the buttons and pwr and USB plug ins. When you turn the scanner sideways the buttons are in the wrong corner due to the way the lid opens. Additionally the pwr and USB plugs connect just to the right of the buttons. This is a poor design and causes the cables to run the length of the scanner. Just not layed out well for my useage. Scans well but doesn't come with a FAX program, you must use that built in to XP/Vista. Interfaces well but is NOT TWAIN compatiable.
I have had a few scanners before, all other brands, but i am super happy with this scanner. I love the way the lid opens, i love the way the software works with Vista. Excellent results when scanning photos its very easy the BEST scanner for the money on the market. There are NO cons in my opinion.
