Epson Perfection V750-M Flatbed Scanner

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

For $899.99, the Epson Perfection is a top of the range home printer which you wouldn't expect anything less than top quality scans from. The resolution is the perfect place to start, with up to 12,800 dpi interpolated resolution. Even if scanning highly detailed content that requires high quality color reproduction, I can't imagine anything that would require any more than the advertised 6400 dpi. To the human eye, anything scanned at this resolution will have picked up every detail that you can find in the original subject.
For high speed printing, the Epson is capable of 4800 dpi, which once again seems as much as you could need if what you're scanning isn't important enough to wait the extra few seconds for normal speed scanning. 48 bit color depth and 16 bit for gray scale give you a good standard of color quality, and 4.0 Dmax optical density, digital ICE and the fluid mount accessory all work together to ensure that imperfections like dust and shadows don't show up on your final image.
The Epson is compatible with all major operating systems, including anything from as far back as Windows 98 to all recent Mac operating systems. It doesn't specifically mention compatibility with Windows Vista in the specifications, but mine works perfectly. The scanner itself is 12 by 6 inches, capable of scanning anything below a size of 85 by 11.7 inches. I don't use it for film, but apparently the Epson is in its element creating duplicates of film, and has never produced a scan that I wasn't happy with.
The only warning about the Epson Perfection is that it isn't instantly intuitive to use, and the instructions included with the software don't make it very much easier to understand. The best way to learn how to use the Epson is to experiment, which of course is much easier if you have experience with simpler scanners. While the quality is absolutely superb and second to none, this is a scanner suitable for people who know what they're doing, not beginners.
