from Arlington, VA
I've had it for a while now and couldn't be happier. Originally bought it to scan photos, which it does a great job of doing, but I also use it a lot for scanning to PDF files. My copier has a scanner, but I prefer Epson Perfection V500 so much more. Easy to set up, easy to use, fits my needs. For the price, a very good scanner.
35mm Positive transfers to digital
from San Francisco
I purchased my V500 scanner as a device specifically for transferring 35mm slides to jpgs. With very little learning time, I've transferred hundreds of slides - a family album - with great ease and terrific results. This is a quick, high resolution and cost-effective product. I could not be happier! A great resource for creating power-point "photo' albums!

I mostly use this scanner to digitize my art work. The images are great and it is so easy to use.
Epson Perfection V500 Photo Scanner
from Akron, Ohio
The scanner and it's operation seemed to be good. However, the software appears to be wanting. After about a year of use, when I attempt to open "Epson Scan" I get an error message "Epson Scan has stopped working." This seems to nullify the repair, correction, and editing functionality of the scanner.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Overall, a good scanner
By family historian
The Epson V500 photo scanner does a great job scanning photos reasonably quickly. My main complaint is that some dark streaks have developed on the underside of the scanning surface, and these show up sometimes in the scans. I don't know what this is, or if it is possible to get rid of it.
Film Photographers Essential Tool
from Mojave Desert, California
This scanner is essential for those photographers using film. You can scan your negatives with this machine using the provided templates. There is a template for 35 mm film, and one for slides. I suggest that Epson provide a scanning template for 120 format film too. Since I shoot and develop my own film, the V500 is an essential tool for my work. Many of my fellow professional and art film photographers use the same machine.
V500 Photo Scanner- works nicely
By Don A
from Danbury, CT
Installed the V500 with minimal difficulties. Had a problem with the CD that came with the scanner because it did not have the up to date software /drivers/app for my iMac with Lion OS 10.7.5. Had to go to Apple and get driver; still did not work. With the friendly help of BH Photo tech support, we got the rest of the missing software from the Epson Site. This took more time that it should have to get the Scanner operational. The scanner works very well, and converts my 35 mm slides with excellent color rendition and resolution. I'm pleased now that I passed the initial challenges of setup.
from Kerhonkson, NY and Marco Island, FL
After using Epson Perfection V500 Photo Scanner for a year I am very satisfied with the scanner. It has adjustments for all types of photos, black and white and color. It copies documents very well in color or black and white. I also was able to scan some old positive slides that were more than 50 years old and faded. They came out viewable considering their age and condition. I have 2 Epson Perfection V500 Photo Scanners; one in my NY home and one in my Florida condo. I like the scanner very much and I recommend it to my friends.
from La Verne, CA
The V500 was recommended by my office supply vendor as an answer to slide and film strip concerns. It replaced a competitive product which I returned. The V500 worked with ease and simply did what it was supposed to do. Although it processed only 4 slides at a time, that was more than fast enough so I could keep them organized while I was processing them. Both flim and slide conversion images were sharp and what I was looking for. Buy it, you will not be disappointed.
