EPSON Perfection 2400 Flatbed Scanner: Passing the Test of Time

byimmac Jun 9, 2007
14 Helpfuls 15 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Reliability, versatility, and exceptional quality of scanned copies.
Cons Figuring it all out.
Recommended it? Yes

This 2003 Christmas gift is no longer in production--which is the main reason I'm writing this review. In the past I've written glowing reviews on products (mostly electronic) that crashed not so very long after publication. One was an EPSON printer/scanner, but not this one. My EPSON Perfection...

Pros Fairly good scans - once you ploughed through the tortuous controls
Cons Controls, instructions and software crashes
Recommended it? No

This can produce good scans eventually, but the controls are awful, and so are the instructions, and just recently mine has developed a tendency to quit just as it completes a scan. This is with Mac OS 10.4.3. Epson support never answer the phone! Read full review »


Lots of Big Scanner Features in a Small Package

byframerkat Nov 12, 2004
6 Helpfuls 7 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Ease of use, High resolution, Small size, Epson quality
Cons Negative holder that holds negs off glass
Recommended it? Yes

I have only had this scanner for about a week now and have been scouring my negative collection to get everything I can scanned in. All I can say is "wow!" I never expected this kind of resolution for only the $50 I spent on eBay for this baby. I've only found one drawback so far with the negative... Read full review »

Pros Ease of Use, PHD buttons on front console 48bit scanning 35mm adapter included Well built
Cons Adobe photoshop Elements program and only 1 35mm adapter included.
Recommended it? Yes

I had to replace my trusty SCSI-2 scanner, and my choices were overwhelming. I chose this scanner for 3 reasons: 1- Price,2-Features,3-Ease of Use. The P.H.D.[Push here Dummy] buttons on the front console for easy operation are also a very convenient feature to have when you are in a rush and can't... Read full review »

Pros Super Fast, Easy to use, very nice clarity
Cons BIG,somewhat noisy, smart panel software not very smart
Recommended it? Yes

I Have had my 2400 for about a year and it is simply the fastest easy to use scanner I have ever owned. It scans pictures quickly and the auto recognition mode is really nice when your in a hurry and want to scan a receipt or something. Kinda wish it wasn`t so big buttt it is a nice scanner Read full review »


Great Buy

4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros ease, ocr, price, quality
Cons minimal printed manual, but online documentation available
Recommended it? Yes

This scanner is sooo much better than an old UMAX that I had to replace (not XP compatible). Software is very good and easy to use. Photo scanning and editing are very intuitive and easy to do, and the software allows for easy fixes for dust/scratches, etc. I especially like the OCR software. Text... Read full review »


Epson Perfection 2400 is perfect

bytonybates Feb 4, 2004
6 Helpfuls 7 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Easy to set up and use, software is great, price is right.
Cons None that I can see so far.
Recommended it? Yes

I bought the scanner to scan in slides that have been sitting in my closet for a thousand years. When I was in my 20's I was into photography and have some great shots, especially for on top of the World Trade Center. I scanned the slides in, which I hadn't seen for about 15 years, and they are as... Read full review »

Pros Feature that removes half tone dots
Cons Skimpy printed manual. I have a difficult time reading text on screen.
Recommended it? Yes

I got an Epson Perfection 2400 last August and immediately used it to scan photos from previously printed material. The feature that allows the removal of half tone dots was very useful. I scanned about 3,000 images at 600DPI and 300DPI and all came out fine.
I've used it to copy... Read full review »

Pros High-quality scans when it worked.
Cons It broke! Beginner-type software. Software crashed sometimes when other programs were...
Recommended it? No

about 30 days after I purchased the 2400, it stopped scanning. There is no ON/OFF button. It did go into sleep mode after non-use for a few minutes, so I would just leave it on - perhaps that was the issue? The specific problem was that the scanning light never came back on after it went to... Read full review »


Excellent Value for the Money on a Top End Consumer Product

Pros Value, Ease of Use, 2400 dpi Optical Resolution
Cons New Driver (Epson Scan) Needs A Little Work
Recommended it? Yes

I had this scanner for a few days now and so far it is working very well for me. I used and owned HP, Epson 1660, and just before this one, a Canon LiDE 20 scanner. The Canon LiDE 20 is a USB powered (no power cord) small scanner which worked well but it did not feature a slide/negative adaptor and... Read full review »


Epson Perfection 2400 - It's pretty close to perfection

byleveleth Aug 15, 2003
94 Helpfuls 95 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Easy Installation. Auto and Manual operating modes.
Cons You have to find the space for it.
Recommended it? Yes

The EPSON Perfection 2400 Photo Flatbed Scanner is a scanner that offers more functionality than some of the other scanners I looked at. It will scan not only photographs and other paper images, but also 35mm negatives and slides. In conjunction with the software provided, it will scan using... Read full review »


Epson Perfection 2400 Photo (Mac OS X User)

bychangcy Aug 12, 2003
6 Helpfuls 7 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Automatic recognition & scanning for material being scanned
Cons Bundled software only works in Mac OS 9 environment
Recommended it? Yes

I haven't used a scanner in about 5 years, and decided to purchase one recently and chose this model. Firstly, before a Mac OS X user can even use the scanner, one needs to first download the appropriate driver from Epson's website (www.epson.com) as the driver included with the scanner contains...

Doesn't perform as advertised

byhal_p Aug 9, 2003
5 Helpfuls 6 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Good quality scans from photos.
Cons Slide scanning does not work (so far). Very poor ergonomics. Clunky software.
Recommended it? No

I just installed the scanner following instructions. It scans color prints very nicely. However, the software is a bit clunky. For example, it runs in automatic unless you hit CANCEL to switch to manual (in which case you still have to wait until it finishes a pre-scan). This is crude. Many of the... Read full review »


Send me that picture will you?

bydalesky Jun 6, 2003
13 Helpfuls 14 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Excellent speed; great negatives handling; high resolution; good OCR software
Cons smart panel software confusing - no comprehensive manual
Recommended it? Yes

I wanted a scanner primarily to allow me to send pictures to family and friends, using the Internet. I mean, what could be easier, right? Get your photos developed, save money with only one set, bring them home and decide which ones you want to copy and send. To be honest, another dream was to be... Read full review »

Pros Speed, impressing images, excellent film and negative scans
Cons No written manual, some minor software misses
Recommended it? Yes


I had been looking for a simple and easy to use scanner to finally replace my trusty old Phantom E3 for some while. Since I also happen to have a huge collection of old 35 mm slides, I thought that it would be a great opportunity to once and for all transfer those old slides... Read full review »


Great inexpensive scanner for 35 mm slides

bychasblock May 20, 2003
6 Helpfuls 7 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Excellent Scanner for those who want to scan 35mm slides. Good value for the money.
Cons Documentation is scanty but no problems so far.
Recommended it? Yes

Scanner came with all the software you will need to scan reflective copy and negatives/slides. Have not used the Adobe Photo Shop Elements because I have the Adobe Photo Shop and Paint Shop Pro. Epson Twain interfaces well with MS Word for OCR scanning.

Installation was a snap. Nothing to... Read full review »

I recently bought a new desktop system complete with a new printer, scanner, monitor--the works. I was amazed at the speed and quality of the scans from the Epson. I made sure to get the same brand of scanner and printer because I had problems in the past with software incompatibility. My Epson... Read full review »

Pros Set up quickly. Photoshop Elements is nice in the bundle. Scans are sufficiently good...
Cons Software installation was buggy. Documentation weak.
Recommended it? Yes

The scanner works as advertised and I am reasonably satisfied. The quality of the scans for both color photos and color 35mm negatives is excellent. I have not tried scanning slides (I do not have any.) The speed of the image transfer is rather impressive considering that I do not have USB 2.0 on... Read full review »

Good for transparencies, worth the price

byphilmck Jan 4, 2003

Pros Fast, good colour depth and resolution, good for scanning transparencies.
Cons Software rather inflexible.
Recommended it? Yes

Reason for purchase
I bought the Epson Perfection 2400 as a replacement for a Plustek OpticPro UT12, which had two big problems for me - insufficient colour depth when scanning transparencies, and slow speeds when photocopying. (Also one of the hinges broke, which was my final excuse!) The... Read full review »
