Reviewed By Our Editors

Scanners have become an important part of the home and office over the last few years. Scanner technology is everywhere and used in many ways. With today’s advanced scanning technology, it is incredibly easy to capture text and images, allowing you to save softcopies of documents on your computer. You can then alter or enhance the image, print it out or use it on your Web page.

Epson has unveiled its latest scanner called the Epson Perfection V500 Photo Scanner. This device is considered as a flatbed type or desktop scanner. It is one of the most versatile and most commonly used scanners today.

The Epson Perfection V500 Photo Scanner uses a 6400 x 9600 dpi optical resolution with 48-bit color depth and 16-bit gray scale depth. With a 6400 dpi optical resolution, users can create 17” x 22” or bigger enlargements from film with incredible detail and accuracy. Additionally, with 48-bit color depth and a 3.4 dynamic range, the Epson V500 Photo produces scans with brilliant, true-to-life colors.

Another feature of the Epson V500 Photo scanner is the energy-efficient ReadyScan LED technology. This technology is part of this device to completely eliminate warm-up time when turning on the scanner. Also, the ReadyScan LED adjusts the colors of the light source based on the type of document being scanned. Therefore, it scans faster and offers low-energy consumption.

The Epson V500 Photo includes two powerful, yet easy-to-use complete photo restoration solutions for advanced amateur photographers and creative consumers, including Digital ICE and Epson Easy Photo Fix technology. Digital ICE is an innovative technology that easily removes the appearance of dust and scratches from film, eliminating the need for costly photo retouching services. Meanwhile, Epson Easy Photo Fix restores faded color photos, slides and negatives back to their original brilliance with one click.

Another powerful tool for image correction that has been included in Epson V500 Photo Scanner is Adobe Photoshop Elements. Other than image correction, using this software allows users to create, edit, organize and share images.

Adding to its robust feature set, the Epson V500 Photo Scanner has built-in Transparency Units (TPU) such as scan slides, negatives and medium format films.

Furthermore, the said scanner manufactured by Epson uses the high-speed USB 2.0 interface connectivity. With USB 2.0, it can transfer data via the USB 2.0 port at up to 480Mbps for maximum performance. The scanner is compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000/ME/XP/Vista and Mac OS.

The Epson Perfection V500 Photo is an ideal solution for advanced amateur photographers, graphic designers and other creative consumers who are looking for a scanner that delivers professional quality scans and productivity at an affordable price. This scanner has the superior performance of a high-end commercial lab scanner designed to accommodate varying skill levels, whether for in-house use, professional studio or small office. The scanner is yet another example of Epson’s unyielding commitment to deliver the optimal combination of technology, quality and value.
