Still waiting for that shipment Jeanie?

I think Chris H said something about having to wait forever to get his 2450 as well...must be a world wide shortage.

There is in the UK Greg my normal supplier who usually has the latest models has been only able to get small numbers and all are on pre-order. At this rate the 2450 will have been replaced !!

Yes, I'm still waiting. Latest word is that it will arrive at the store June 10. I don't really have high hopes of that though.

Believe me, you'll KNOW when I get it!

Thumbs down

Hi all,

I've just bought the Epson 2450 from Dabs.com here in the UK (their depot is 1 mile away).

I found it a breeze to setup. Because I use WinXP on both of my PC's I checked before purchase re it's compatibility. The Epson TWAIN driver was on their web site so I downloaded it, installed the driver and connected a firewire cable.

Within 5 minutes from opening the box I was scanning in a 645 colour slide with amazing results.

The auto mode is in itself impressive and the driver allows people to access the advanced mode where colour, rotation, size., etc., can be pre-determined.

As to its performance I have not crits whatsoever but why do our Stateside cousins get extra software? Another example of "Rip-Off Britain"?

Cheers,
Barry

Barry - Are you referring to SilverFast?

Perhaps they give us extra software because we have to wait so long to get one? Just kidding...

Mine JUST arrived via UPS 5 minutes ago!! YEAH! Guess what I'll be doing this afternoon? (No, Doug, I haven't forgotten that I promised to write an "out-of-the-box" review.)

Cool Jeanie! Nothing is more fun than playing with a new toy

Feel free to ask any questions if you run into a snag. The only problem I had setting mine up was getting Firewire to work...other than that it was, like Barry said, a breeze!

Exactly what software did you get with the US version of the 2450 Greg ? I've heard of Silverfast but its not well known over here.


Cheers........

Mine came with Epson drivers, SilverFast SE , and I believe Photoshop Elements. (I now have 3 Elements disks from various bundles...don't remember where they all came from!)

The Epson driver is good but I found that I got much better results, especially with color negs, when using Siverfast.

Yes that's the one - couldn't remember the name as I typed. I know I can buy it on-line but $99? Why don't Epson universally include such useful software?
