my older high end HP scanner (for it's time) bit the big one so I had to shop for a new unit - so after looking at many units on line the Epson Perfection V300 Photo Scanner looked like it would fit my needs and the price was right - I like the fact it has a LED scan light source - it's PDQ to start scanning ( not like the old HP with a lamp that had to warm up) - I use a scanner a lot for my home business so start up speed is NICE - it seems to be more clear and have more detail - it's also is smart in the auto mode but you can also take control of the scan and scan the way you want too - well worth the money in a mid range unit

-Wayne quote

I have had several flatbed scanners plus film scanners. This one does a good job at what it is designed for. Since I have a dedicated film scanner, I didn't use that feature in this scanner because they just can't compare with a true film scanner. I had a Canon lIde scanner prior to this, and it died. It was OK up to that point, but I opted for Epson this time (obviously.) The resolution of the Canon just wasn't there. That being said, it takes less than 1 minute to do a full page scan at 600dpi. The results are nice and crisp, and you do have some options right in the scanner interface to help tweak things before your scan even gets written out to a file. The software can be switched from "I'm a complete newbie at this" to "Get out of my way and let me scan!" modes. There are also some settings in between. If you want a full-blown scanning utility, check out VueScan by Ed Hamrick. It's what I use for film scanning, and it opens up some options that you won't see otherwise. I really don't have any complaints about this scanner.
