Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner
This model has terrific image quality with optical resolution of 6400dpi and 48-bit color depth. In that way it matches the best scans you can get from the Epson Perfection V800 but there are some differences which should be noted. There's no "quick scan" mode with this pick and the V800 can scan at 4800 dpi for faster scanning. The optical density with this model is lower than the V800, so details and color gradations likely will not be as precise and fine with this scanner. However, it does have a built-in transparency adapter in the lid which works well for 35mm slides and film strips but not quite as easy to use or effective as the separate adapters included with the V800. This model is often less than half the price of the V800 so this is a great option for casual use but not ideal for professional photo scanning.
