"It pretty much does it all for scanners."

December 20, 2010  |  By johnlh

 |  Version: VueScan 9.0.06

Pros

Simple to use. Updated frequently. The price is right.

Cons

Excellent product that is updated frequently. You will always be able to access and operate your scanners if not today then at least in a week.

Summary

Cannot think of any other than it duplicates somewhat the applications that come with your scanners.

"Best in the business."

December 20, 2010  |  By grahamlestergeorge_dotmac

 |  Version: VueScan 9.0.06

Pros

Works better than anything else

Cons

A prompt to change the location and file name would remove my only real niggle.

Summary

Anyone who's used any other scanning software will be very impressed by the results obtainable from VueScan. It's head and shoulders above the rest.

"Great support! Excellent performance! Best 3d party."

December 18, 2010  |  By info3982

 |  Version: VueScan 9.0.06

Pros

Works with all of my scanners (two) a Polaroid film scanner, HP part of the HP7280.
Very intelligent used with a combo flatbed/sheet feeder.
Supported well .
Often updated for new products.
Improved significantly over time.
Interface consistent.

Cons

The basic interface isn't basic enough from what I've seen and heard. However for me this is minor to non-existent flaw since I learned it easily and it's stay true to it's beginning usefulness, just gotten faster and more accurate over time.

Summary

Try, buy, use, support this fine scanner software. You won't be disappointed.

 |  Version: VueScan 9.0.06

Pros

allows me to use equipment which works well but was orphaned by the manufacturer - like Canon FS400US filw scanner

Cons

interface is a bit opaque, but everything you could possible want is there - just develop a good workflow and checklist

"Very good, but some papers still cause problems."

December 16, 2010  |  By RobertS440

 |  Version: VueScan 9.0.06

Pros

I never have much difficulty with VueScan with my Epson 3170 scanner. The instructions are very clear and if I have difficulty understanding, it will show me how to do what I want to do.

Cons

With my failing eyesight, I scan instructions for equipment that I buy (OCR) but the paper from China which is very thin and very cheap (IMO) that it can not be scanned very well. I scan as a b/w, text doc but it comes out just a smear of grey/black

Summary

Over all this is a great product since the original software was OS 9 and early OS X but stopped working several versions ago particularly with the OCR software that came with it. I checked both web sites, Epson and ABBYY® for updates but it appears to have been abandoned. I still love it's functionality and versatility. Especially when I use the VueScan software. It makes a no brainer wonderful combination.

"Most capable and best supported package available."

December 12, 2010  |  By BillBankson

 |  Version: VueScan 9.0.06

Pros

Have recommended many times and clients have been complimentary.

Cons

Still somewhat complex for many basic users.

Summary

With many new unsophisticated users coming into existence a more intuitive interface would be good to see.

December 11, 2010  |  By bradbunnin1

 |  Version: VueScan 9.0.06

Pros

Intuitive interface
Excellent scanning results
Fast

Cons

No problems whatsoever
