  • Epson Perfection 2400 - It's pretty close to perfection

    Aug 15, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy Installation. Auto and Manual operating modes.
    Cons: You have to find the space for it.

    Summary: The EPSON Perfection 2400 Photo Flatbed Scanner is a scanner that offers more functionality than some of the other scanners I looked at. It will scan not only photographs and other paper images, but also 35mm negatives and slides. In conjunctio ... read more

  • EPSON Perfection 2400 Flatbed Scanner: Passing the Test of Time

    Jun 9, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reliability, versatility, and exceptional quality of scanned copies.
    Cons: Figuring it all out.

    Summary: This 2003 Christmas gift is no longer in production--which is the main reason I'm writing this review. In the past I've written glowing reviews on products (mostly electronic) that crashed not so very long after publication. One was an EPSON ... read more

    Nov 12, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use, High resolution, Small size, Epson quality
    Cons: Negative holder that holds negs off glass

    Summary: I have only had this scanner for about a week now and have been scouring my negative collection to get everything I can scanned in. All I can say is "wow!" I never expected this kind of resolution for only the $50 I spent on eBay for this baby. I've ... read more

    Pros: Ease of Use, PHD buttons on front console 48bit scanning 35mm adapter included Well built
    Cons: Adobe photoshop Elements program and only 1 35mm adapter included.

  • Excellent Value for the Money on a Top End Consumer Product

    Oct 30, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Value, Ease of Use, 2400 dpi Optical Resolution
    Cons: New Driver (Epson Scan) Needs A Little Work

    Summary: I had this scanner for a few days now and so far it is working very well for me. I used and owned HP, Epson 1660, and just before this one, a Canon LiDE 20 scanner. The Canon LiDE 20 is a USB powered (no power cord) small scanner which worked well but i ... read more

  • Epson Perfection 2400 Photo (Mac OS X User)

    Aug 12, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Automatic recognition & scanning for material being scanned
    Cons: Bundled software only works in Mac OS 9 environment

    Summary: I haven't used a scanner in about 5 years, and decided to purchase one recently and chose this model. Firstly, before a Mac OS X user can even use the scanner, one needs to first download the appropriate driver from Epson's website ( as the ... read more

  • Send me that picture will you?

    Jun 6, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent speed; great negatives handling; high resolution; good OCR software
    Cons: smart panel software confusing - no comprehensive manual

    Summary: I wanted a scanner primarily to allow me to send pictures to family and friends, using the Internet. I mean, what could be easier, right? Get your photos developed, save money with only one set, bring them home and decide which ones you want to copy ... read more

  • Incredible imaging power in a very gray box

    Jun 5, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Speed, impressing images, excellent film and negative scans
    Cons: No written manual, some minor software misses

    Summary: Introduction I had been looking for a simple and easy to use scanner to finally replace my trusty old Phantom E3 for some while. Since I also happen to have a huge collection of old 35 mm slides, I thought that it would be a great ... read more

    May 20, 2003 by

    Pros: Excellent Scanner for those who want to scan 35mm slides. Good value for the money.
    Cons: Documentation is scanty but no problems so far.

    Summary: Scanner came with all the software you will need to scan reflective copy and negatives/slides. Have not used the Adobe Photo Shop Elements because I have the Adobe Photo Shop and Paint Shop Pro. Epson Twain interfaces well with MS Word for OCR scanning. ... read more

    Feb 16, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Set up quickly. Photoshop Elements is nice in the bundle. Scans are sufficiently good quality.
    Cons: Software installation was buggy. Documentation weak.

    Summary: The scanner works as advertised and I am reasonably satisfied. The quality of the scans for both color photos and color 35mm negatives is excellent. I have not tried scanning slides (I do not have any.) The speed of the image transfer is rather ... read more

  • Good for transparencies, worth the price

    Pros: Fast, good colour depth and resolution, good for scanning transparencies.
    Cons: Software rather inflexible.

    Summary: Reason for purchase I bought the Epson Perfection 2400 as a replacement for a Plustek OpticPro UT12, which had two big problems for me - insufficient colour depth when scanning transparencies, and slow speeds when photocopying. (Also one of the ... read more

    Pros: easy setup, easy use, incredible results for photos AND 35mm negatives
    Cons: No on/off switch, nowhere to store negative/slide adapter, minor color correcting

    Summary: Both my wife and I are novice photographers who have countless sleeves of negatives in a box. It was important that the scanner we ended up with could give us superior quality scans from existing photos for printing and digital archiving. I also wanted a ... read more

    Pros: Fairly good scans - once you ploughed through the tortuous controls
    Cons: Controls, instructions and software crashes

    Summary: This can produce good scans eventually, but the controls are awful, and so are the instructions, and just recently mine has developed a tendency to quit just as it completes a scan. This is with Mac OS 10.4.3. Epson support never answer the ... read more

    Pros: ease, ocr, price, quality
    Cons: minimal printed manual, but online documentation available

    Summary: This scanner is sooo much better than an old UMAX that I had to replace (not XP compatible). Software is very good and easy to use. Photo scanning and editing are very intuitive and easy to do, and the software allows for easy fixes for dust/scratches, ... read more

    Pros: Easy to set up and use, software is great, price is right.
    Cons: None that I can see so far.

    Summary: I bought the scanner to scan in slides that have been sitting in my closet for a thousand years. When I was in my 20's I was into photography and have some great shots, especially for on top of the World Trade Center. I scanned the slides in, which I ... read more

    Pros: Feature that removes half tone dots
    Cons: Skimpy printed manual. I have a difficult time reading text on screen.

    Summary: I got an Epson Perfection 2400 last August and immediately used it to scan photos from previously printed material. The feature that allows the removal of half tone dots was very useful. I scanned about 3,000 images at 600DPI and 300DPI and all came ... read more

    Pros: High-quality scans when it worked.
    Cons: It broke! Beginner-type software. Software crashed sometimes when other programs were open.

    Summary: about 30 days after I purchased the 2400, it stopped scanning. There is no ON/OFF button. It did go into sleep mode after non-use for a few minutes, so I would just leave it on - perhaps that was the issue? The specific problem was that the scanning ... read more
