Excellent budget scanner
on 28 October 2011
I am already the very happy owner of a V500, I just bought this as a present for my father-in-law to replace his old scanner, which still works fine but is not supported on his new Windows 7 laptop.
I have only briefly tested it but it seems very well made and gives quick access to the various scanning options via the buttons. As other have mentioned, the location of the power and usb connections is rather odd - on the right hand side at the front - but overall it seems very capable and reasonably fast. LED light means no warm up time required. Works just fine on Windows 7.
I am already used to it, but I find the Epson software very capable and easy to use, whether in auto or expert modes. Its auto-colour correction produces surprisingly good results from seemingly unsalvageable faded/tinted pictures, often without any further tweaking being required. Very good.
