Epson 2450 scanner?

Since my current scanner died, I've been researching possible replacement scanners and have pretty much settled on the Epson 2450 - unless someone gives me a good reason not to! From what I can tell, everyone who's talked about their 2450 on RetouchPRO has been really happy with it. I'm just wondering if there's any "gotchas" that I should be aware of?

Thanks, Jeanie

I have the 1650 photo and I love it. The only problem I have with it and I don't find it a big problem, is that it doesn't have a way to turn it off. It basically sleeps. I can't say if it's the same for the 2450 or if that's a problem for you. As Epson products go, I would buy any Epson with no hesitation. I think they make excellent products.

The 2450 does have an on/of switch. For the price, it's the one of the best flatbeds out there and I would recommend it with no hesitation. The only problems I had was having to reboot twice to get the firewire connection to work (works like a charm now!) and, when I first started scanning slides, they had a slight Magenta cast. I started using the Silverfast LE software that comes with the scanner...that cleared up most of my color casts!

It's a fantastic scanner!

I love mine and I haven't found any gotchas yet. I also like the smart panel software that comes with it as I use my scanner for multiple functions.

The EPSON Smart Panel is the control center for your scanner. Whether you wish to copy, e-mail, scan, print, fax, or use the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software, etc., EPSON Smart Panel will interface quickly and easily with the connected devices and bring out the best in your work.

Once EPSON Smart Panel is open, you may access each of the solutions by clicking on its icon. As you move your mouse over the icons in the EPSON Smart Panel, a quick guide will appear in the Guide area at the right.

You can also customize EPSON Smart Panel to launch the solution of your choice when you press the Start button on the Scanner. The solution will run with minimum or no prompting.


ENJOY!

Have no fear DJ. I can't think of anyone else to talk to about my new toy who would actually appreciate it like you all would!

An "out of the box" review would be cool. If you're feeling up to it, I can post it in the reviews section, or you can post it here as you feel like it.

"Out of the box review" meaning how easy it is to set up and get working, my first impressions, etc? I think I can do that...

Excellent I'll let you decide whether it should appear in our Reviews section or if you'd like to post it in our forums.
