"V200 Epson Scanner.. almost perfect!"

I absoutly love this scanner, it is fantastic and great value for money at £69.99 for a scanner you cant go wrong.
I have so many photos of me and my family when I was a child, and I felt it would be great to buy a scanner and put them onto the computer just in case something happens to the photos I at least know I'll still have kept the wounderful memories on my computer.
.

Why is this scanner so great?

The scanner accurately recreates images and documents at high resolutions of up to 4800dpi and 3.2 optical density.
The scanner has a capiticy of 6 frames of 35mm filmstrips or 4 frames of 35mm mounted slides.
I found the Scan-to-email button for sending an email message with image attached really useful especially as I have a lot of family in New Zeland I can send them photos without any delay.

The scanner also has a Scan-to-PDF button for saving images in PDF format this is great for people who usually save things in PDF anyway.

Apperance
The scanner is carefully designed to impress anyone with it's slim black casing standing at a small size of 57mm.


Functions
You can scan documments that are up to 25mm in thickness with the lid closed!

Some more advantages...

It has an advanced colour restoration feature this is defaintly useful for my father who has very old photos from his childhood and complained before I bouight this product about his photos fading, with this function you can bring old fadded photos back to life, my dad loves it!

THERES ONLY ONE
Disadvantage...
One of the disadvantages of this item is that its quiet slow but the quality of the results compensate the slowness of the item.

Although the Epson v200 isnt fast , it is flexible, and great for people who want to spend very little on a scanner,
