    Does everything I want

    My first scanner years back was an HP flatbed scanner which was simple to operate and was made obsolete by Windows 8. I then got a Xerox which worked for a while but was more complicated with more features. It finally died after a few years. I reviewed a lot of scanners for under $100 and everything pointed to the Epson and a Canon. I bought this and it was super easy to install using the CD/DVD? that came with it. Have been using it for about a month or so and love it. It's an overkill for what I need, but that's great just in case. Its scans a lot faster than my old Xerox especially in high-resolution mode and has a neat preview mode so one does not waste paper and more importantly ink. Excellent copies in all modes.

    Let me preface this review by stating I do not have much experience in the scanner Market. I really bought this camera in order to transfer canvas art to digital format, in that regards it is great as it is one of these few scanners that open up vertically instead of slide paper through, therefore I'm able to scan the canvas itself. I have no complaints when it comes to Quality the only issue is installing the right drivers as it took multiple attempts from the website to find the right drivers out of the four options.

    Very basic

    This scanner is very basic, which is all I needed. It will not be my primary scanner. The small profile is great, but it is rather loud and very slow. Despite the negatives, it will suit my purposes well enough. It is able to be set up at an angle, which would be a great if you are limited on space. If you are going to be doing a lot of scanning, I wouldn't recommend it but for light to moderate use it should be fine.

    I was pleased to find Epson's reputable quality products are still the best, and this at a great price! The scanner (and software interface) is easy to use, fast, and the high optical resolution (4800, higher software enhancement options), color imaging is outstanding. No "All in One" can match it, especially when you need maximum quality, faithful reproduction of old family photos.

    This Epson scanner scans quickly and does a great job digitizing your paper photographs. It connects easily to a pc without the need for extra software. Simply insert CD to drive and follow instructions while connected to internet. Then when you do start scanning your pictures it is not necessary to be connected to the web. It has a lot of extra features for the person who knows a lot about photography. Good for beginners and people with advanced photography knowledge at a great price.

    I went into Best Buy to get a scanner. I was shown the portable scanners and realized my passport wouldn't work on that. So, twice I walked out with a 3 in 1 or all in one printer that I did not need. All I wanted was a flatbed scanner. My friend told me she had just bought one a few months earlier so I went online and researched the one to get and ordered it online. I was pleased with how easy it was to set up and use. For my purposes it did the trick.

    I love this thing. Ive had this for a few year now. Its an easy setup and gives options of how you want to scan. Also lets you Scan more than one item for 1 file. My favorite thing is there is NO power cord needed. Only needs Micro USB (can use 3rd party cable with no problem). I also like that I can throw this in my back pack and take it with me. Its not very heavy. I like easy and simple with options if needed.

    Inexpensive and easy to set-up

    Set-up was easy, one of the lowest priced scanners I found. However, to scan a simple document in black and white or color and save it in PDF or JPEG format took way too long. I have two older Epson scanners (Perfection 1200 and 1250) that worked much faster, but unfortunately those scanners are not compatible with the latest Widows operating systems.

    This scanner is great. It has more customization settings than I thought (although I can't seem to change the size of the original for scanning photographs. I may just not have found it yet.) But so far it is perfect. It's lightweight and there's no need to plug into wall socket. It just connects to your laptop and turns on. I really love it.

    This scanner set right up on win 10. The software is easy to understand and it does great scans. We needed it because our mother went in the nursing home and we have to send a godzillion copies of a godzillion papers to a godzillion places. Way cheaper than driving to the copy place and paying for copies. Saves a lot of time too!

    We've all been there...boxes of photos, scanning them in painfully slow one by one. Not any more place 3-4 on the scanner, open epson scan, scan in professional mode...and the pictures are auto named and individually saved within minutes. Great scanner!

    I was looking for something small enough to travel with on a plane, because I was flying from Idaho to Pennsylvania. I needed it to scan old pictures and documents that my Grandpa had at his house. It worked perfectly, better than I expected!

    I bought this to replace a very old scanner and have been impressed by the speed and quality of the scans. The removable cover is also a nice feature. The software that came with the device is a bit clunky but gets the job done. It's a solid choice for a basic home office scanner at an affordable price.

    Ordered this from Bestbuy.com & set it up right away after receiving it. Unfortunately it didn’t work properly with Apple. Communicated twice with Epson Technical Support with no successful resolution. Returned it to Best Buy store & exchanged it for an HP which works great.

    I love it. It is much more convenient than having to memorize everything I read. After years of memorizing so much textual information, I am so tired. This little miracle of modern technology allows me to rest my medula oblongata as this scanner serves the same function as my photographic memory.

    Takes amazing quality scans of photos and documents. Also, it is EXTREMELY light, comes with a built-in stand and doesn't need a separate power source (powers itself through USB). For less than $80, this is an amazing deal!

    Decided to try basic scanner for scanning of docs & photos. Performs well. Did not need fancy extras. Found scanner cover to be very thin and flimsy. Feel this detracts from overall value of scanner. Used mostly for sending photos via email. Satisfied overall.

    I bought the V19 in 2016 relying positive reviews and used it for tax seasons 2015 and 2016. On the third attempt to use it today, it is not working. Save your $75.00. BTW I had to get a USB connector also as it does not come with one.

    Purchased this scanner to upgrade my scanning ability from my all in one printer. Definitely an upgrade from the printer. Easy to set up, easy to use and very good quality picture scans.
