I shopped around for a photo-specific scanner, hopefully one with an auto-feeder, looking to automate as much as I could, but basically struck out. A bit of reading and a few reviews suggested that though it was minus the auto-feed, this printer could be what I was looking for. It was reasonably priced and I took a chance and ordered it.
I've now got several hours of use scanning pictures of my kids and family, and am pretty happy with the unit. The big surprise was that the quality of the scan, even at the same DPI was noticeably better than the multifunction printer. Truth is, the majority of the work in this task is removing the photos from the waxy album sheets and their clear plastic covers. The scanner just keeps on cranking, and it takes about 1 minute for me to load a picture, scan it, put it on the 'done' pile, and then begin the next.
Would it be faster overall with an autofeeder? Maybe a bit, but most of the time in the sequence above is for the scanner to determine the size of each photo placed on the glass, and then doing whatever it must to scan only the image. It takes two passes, just like the multifunction unit, but the the passes are automated and require no intervention beyond removing the photo when the process is complete. Photos are saved in JPG format, and the filename with its 3 digit number is auto-incremented with each new scan. I use Windows 7, and the included Epson software puts the completed scans in the 'Pictures' section of the Library. I'm almost done with the first album, so it seems likely that I'll finish in an acceptable amount of time.
I then installed the software needed to operate the scanner, onto my computer. I went through all of the proper steps, following the installation instructions to the letter. Then, I tried to use the scanner. And that is when the first issue occurred.
I placed a piece of my artwork on the scanner bed and opened the proper program on my computer. I then tried activating the scanner. The software popped up a little window saying: "No Scanner Detected." Okay. So I tried plugging the USB cable into a different port and restarting the program. Same issue. I repeated this process multiple times, trying the cable at least three times in each of the four USB ports on my computer.
I tried using the buttons on the scanner to scan the picture, to no avail.
I tried restarting the computer and doing it all over again, but that didn't work. Finally, I figured I should try re-installing the scanner software. I uninstalled the software, restarted my computer, then re-installed the software. Then, I tried scanning again. And that is when issue number two manifested.
After I re-installed the software the scanner was finally able to connect. So I tried scanning the picture again. I would like to mention that every time I opened the program it took about one minute to finally open, and took about ten to twenty seconds to register any clicking I did within the program. As well, it crashed just about every time I opened it.
Back to the issue at hand: Both the product description, the operating manual, the box, and the scanner itself testified that it could scan at 4800dpi. So, I trusted the description and all that and attempted to scan at 4800dpi.
The software then popped up a window saying that I couldn't scan at that resolution. It did not give a reason as to why. I tried again and achieved the same results. I tried 1200dpi. Same. Thing. Happened. I tried 600dpi, it wouldn't let me do that either. Finally, it said the scanner was ready to scan. But...it could only scan at 300dpi. I did the scan at 300dpi, and that is when issue number three happened.
The image was scanned successfully at 300dpi. Then, I tried to save it. The software itself is not very user-friendly, and I had to look at the manual several times, and online, before I finally figured out how to save the scanned image. I followed the instructions...but, you guessed it, the program gave me an error saying the image could not be saved -- again giving no reason as to why that was. The program then crashed. I tried again...eight times, the program crashing every time until the ninth time worked. It told me the image had been saved. I went to the destination folder to find that the image had, in fact, not been saved at all. I did a search of the entire hard-drive for the image, but it did not exist. So I tried saving it again. The program crashed. I did this about three times, everything following the same pattern. I troubleshot the program, I looked online for tech support, but none of the 'solutions' worked in the slightest.
So, I re-installed the software. The same thing happened, every issue the same. I re-installed the software, restarted my computer, checked my computer for updates, multiple times, and in multiple orders. But, every single time, the program had the exact same issues. And, for the record, I checked the system requirements for the operation of the scanner, and my system exceeded every single one by a mile.
After about ten more attempts, something finally seemed to work. Seemed being the operative word here. I opened the program, the scanner connected, the program didn't crash, and it let me select the option of scanning at 4800dpi. I would like to emphasize again how completely user-UNfriendly the software is. Despite spending an hour and a half reading the manual and doing research online, the program was still hard to figure out. And that's coming from a guy who is not generally stupid when it comes to this sort of thing.
Anyway, I clicked "scan". But, lo and behold, again an error window appeared, telling me I couldn't scan at 4800dpi. This time it gave a reason: I did not have enough room on my hard drive for the image. I had over 1 Terabyte of empty space on my hard drive! That's far more than enough for the estimated size of the file! I tried scanning again, with the same result. I tried 3600dpi. I tried 1200dpi. I tried 600dpi. Every, Single. Time. I got the same error message. Then, like before it let me scan at 300dpi. I did that but ran into the same saving problem as earlier.
Being the extremely stubborn person I am, I repeated the process of uninstalling the software, restarting my computer, reinstalling the software, troubleshooting, scanning the software for problems, trying the buttons on the scanner itself, trying to scan at different dpi's, trying to save the 300dpi image. I counted: I repeated this process, occasionally changing up the order of steps sixteen different times!
But, every single time I ran into all of the same issues that I had been constantly having!
Finally, I said enough is enough, packed up the scanner, and returned it. I would absolutely recommend not getting this scanner. The software is terrible, and it's confusing to figure out. Do not get this scanner.

- doesn't need a power cable
- Sometimes it cuts off part of the picture if you use the Full-Auto Mode. I just use professional mode instead.
I really like that I don't need a power source- it plugs right into the USB port. Which is great, since I don't have a lot of desk space!
The first drawing is the result of using the Epson scanner for the very first time - it colour corrected and looks much sharper than the scan I did with my HP Deskjet (which had to be colour corrected in Photoshop).
You can see the difference of my old printer (not colour corrected, just scanned) with the comparison pic. The Epson scanner even gets the texture of the watercolour paper to show through!
This will save me tons of time since I work primarily with watercolours, and those always need to be post-processed in PS.
I will update in 6 months to see how to scanner has held up!
I bought an Epson V39 scanner. It had been sent from Epson to Amazon in a tatty box, sealed with scotch tape. I sent it back and got another one. Same story! The box had a label with CLEARED posted on it. It certainly did not seem new; I suspect it was reconditioned.
Although 'Planned Obsolescence' lawsuits have been launched against HP, Canon and Brother, the main culprit seems to be Epson. Enter 'Planned Obsolescence' and the manufacturers' names on the internet and you'll see several reports like this.
1) You need to absolutely read the instructions BEFORE installing your new purchase else it will never work properly
2) Customize all of the settings BEFORE turning on this device
My scanner processed Three scans and stopped functioning I am sincerely tired to have to deal with settings that remindedme of the 80ies !
Unless you remember the manual way to install and configure this device will hardly work
I sincerely regret my purchase
a. It’s small, taking less space.
b. It is light.
c. It is VERY easy to open the cover to scan book.
d. It is easy to use. Whether I scan photos or documents, it is EXACTLY the same step. Just loading different profile.
f. It does not require a PDF (or another software) to start.
g. It’s just one small standard USB cable. No separate power cable with transformer.
h. It's not too expensive.
h. Support is quick. I get a response in a day. They respond on Saturday. Some other company will not reply on Saturday.
At this time, I can not comment about reliability and quality, although these criteria are VERY important to me. I have to use for at least one year to have an reasonable idea.
May 14, 2019: One important thing that I forget to mention in my original submission. This product has a feature to allow me to scan legal document. It is done by software. You scan top of the page, then scan the bottom of the page. The software will merge them into one PDF file. This is great to me. I had lots of difficulties over the years with legal documents.
Compre el producto en 2018 y para mi mala fortuna el producto tuvo un defecto en el que la lámpara se atoró y se desvió a la mitad de un escaneo como en la foto.
Contacté a Amazon y me recomendaron contactar al fabricante... contacté el numero de soporte en la página de EPSON y me atedieron después de varios días e intentos de que el número "no existía" y me dijeron que la garantía para sus productos es de un año y que tenía que ir a un centro autorizado a que examinaran el equipo y validar la garantía.
El producto aun estaba en fecha de "garantía", se descompuso un mes antes de que se cumpliera el año y lo metí a un centro autorizado de EPSON para validar mi garantía.
Además de que tardaron 4 meses en darme respuesta (venciéndose la garantía) y después de varios correos sin respuesta por parte del centro autorizado, me dijeron que la garantía según ellos no vale porque es un producto importado de EU y por ende EPSON latam no puede validar mi garantía y tengo que pagar una reparación de $900 pesos (prácticamente la mitad de lo que pague por el producto) y esperar de 60 a 75 días para que sea reparado... todo por un defecto del mismo producto que se supone que estaba dentro de la garantía de un año.
En cambio después de contactar a Amazon, pudieron ayudarme el mismo día en que el fabricante me notifico esto y me ofrecieron un reembolso, la mala reseña es para EPSON y su mal servicio.
Easily scanned my art at a high enough resolution to have it blown up and put on a canvas (original was 6x6 and the printed canvas was 36x36 and was very crisp) and to create clothing.
Easily portable as it uses the laptop as a power source.
I had set it up easily before updating to macOS 10. However when we went to use it after the upgrade is was extremely difficult to setup until I googled “scanner v39 not working with macOS 10”. Played around looking through support documents for about an hour before I finally googled the answer.
con: my unit came with some paint drip on the white scanning panel , I had to clean mine is brake cleaner to remove the paint. (where does the paint come from ? I have no idea) epson quality control is meh..
I love the fact that the scanner is powered by a micro usb cable!
For software its good but there really needs to be a 'max' quality for full auto mode, which would calculate the appropriate resolution for the dimensions of an image.
At times the auto crop is very bad and often photos are upside down (of people)
Auto color correction is pretty decent at times but photoshop elements (free) is probably better.
Plug and play very good but website download could be cleaner and easier to find the proper download when not using a cdrom.
Also, in the 'pro' mode there is no rotate adjustment which IMO needs to be in tenths of a degree, or auto rotate using selection
If it wasn't for the memory issue I would give it a 5 star.
