September 19, 2011  |  By ppatilla_dotmac

Good range of settings; easy to use; works with all three of my scanners ( two Epsons and a Canon)

Cons

Cannot think of a real down side

Summary

One of my better software buys

"Solid performer with no glitches"

September 19, 2011  |  By anfearrua

 |  Version: VueScan 9.0.57

Pros

It keeps on performing with several of my scanners and operating systems. IT worked better than the Epson software on my mac and better than the HP software with windows XP on my networked HP photosmart all-in-one.

Cons

Takes a while to get to know it.

Summary

I have been using Vuescan for years. The software from the scanner manufacturers always has something that does nor work and you can spend a lot of time trying to make it work. While you are doing this you can still work with your new scanner using Vuescan. I paid for the licence once and I am still using all the upgrades on that original licence.

"Very nearly worthless"

September 18, 2011  |  By ratanchamber

 |  Version: VueScan 9.0.57

Pros

It got my scanner to operate after my Epson driver went south and inexplicably the downloadable Epson driver no longer works with OS10.6.x

Cons

Where to start? Too many to summarize here. See "Bottom-line" summary. The short version: this is not for professionals.

Summary

1) Quick-start mode gives no controls for your scan.
2) "Advanced" mode has too many controls that are of dubious use and not enough practical ones.
3) final scan parameters bore no relation to the ones I had set, e.g. I would set a scan for 300% magnification @ 300dpi and would get a scan of 100% @ 300dpi or 300% @ 100dpi. Things like that.
4) Image controls are terrible bordering on useless.
5) Attempts at tech support were very time-consuming and insufficient.

I am very sorry I paid the doubled price for the profession version. I haven't a clue what I got for that either (which is just as much a knock on myself, to be honest) but hey, when you have a massive scanning deadline hanging over you and your scanner driver dies, you have to act fast. Tho I met my deadline it's time to find another driver.

"No tech support & couldn't register software to use it."

September 13, 2011  |  By mrdunham

 |  Version: VueScan 9.0.57

Pros

None could not use the software

Cons

There is no tech support to assist with trouble. While I got a serial # and a customer #, the system would not recognize it to allow me to register the software and use it.

Summary

Unless you can identify a source for tech support, do not buy the software.
