The Plustek is pretty fast, which is the main attraction for me. There’s no “preview” process, and the scanner accepts photos one after the other. The quality is sufficient for my needs. The auto rotate and de-skew works very well most of the time, including on the unevenly cut prints I pulled out of albums.
Very impressed with the speed and quality of the scans. Old black & white photos show excellent detail, and colour prints are reproduced perfectly compared to what our old scanner could manage.
So pleased that I bought this machine. I have a lot of photos that need scanning so that I can put them away but still have them available alongside all my digital photos. One Sunday morning I managed to scan 3,000 + of them. This was on the lowest resolution of 300 and the result was more than acceptable.
Having reviewed the options I settled on the Plustek ePhoto Z300 and I am pleased that I did. Setup was easy. I have a flatbed scanner but chose this for speed and ease of use for scanning many photos and it is a good choice. I have also scanned documents with it. They are also quick and with good results.
I found this Plustek ePhoto z300 scanner to be easy and quick to use. I was amazed at how I buzzed through my photos. Very satisfied. I also scanned some photos that were on cardboard and some old Polaroids and then went right through!
I have been using the Z300 for about two weeks and, so far, it has worked extremely well. I am impressed by the speed of scanning, for the majority of my old photographs, it is more than adequate. The Z300 will have a dramatic impact on the speed of my archiving thousands of old photographs.
It is a great little unit and there is nothing comparable for the price. I have already scanned 100 old photographs, and they all came out great. It auto crops them too, so that is pretty sweet and saves you photo editing time and effort.
Great product, nice and easy to use, easy clean install into win7 OS. No issues. Scans good, auto crops and centers photos as you scan. I found this to be the best solution for rapid scanning old archive photos after looking around for 2 months. If you want to go digital buy this scanner.
