Better than I expected. As slow as advertised. But delivers great results for the owner of racks and racks of old family slides.
By T. Fowler
This is a very early review and I would like to reserve my right to change it if disappointed later. I have only used the v600 for one day and it took me the better part of the day to copy (and process in Lightroom) sixteen of the many hundreds of slides that I have to pick from. While that sounds like an over whelming task, it has changed my approach to working with my family archives. Rather than simply copy them forward to digital in their original condition, I am being handed an opportunity to improve them. These were all taken at a time when post-processing was not open to you unless you owned an expensive darkroom.
So be aware that the v600 will not instantly copy your thousands of slides. But, with the right mindset you can enjoy the experience of enhancing those photographic captures that you have kept and treasured, but seldom viewed.
My workflow is as follows:
1. Copy four slides (the scanner's capacity) at 400 dpi.
2. Import them into Lightroom.
3. Enhance in Lightroom.
4. While in LR, as the last enhancement, edit the photo in a separate software, Noiseless CK.
5. Publish from LR to Flickr, my cloud archive.
While the process takes time, it is enjoyable and rewarding to see the old memories once again before you in Kodak Carousel brightness and color -- and better.
A couple of examples are attached to this review.
Keep in mind, I am an amateur photographer and family archivist. I doubt this machine is up to professional application either in terms of endurance or image quality. But at less than $200, it is perfect for my needs.
Nits I would pick: Not much in the way of instruction. You get one small poster but it is enough if you are somewhat experienced with packing electronic gadgets. It is, in fact, quite easy to use once you get it rolling.

I am adding two copies of an old slide. One was taken with a macro lens by my 35mm dslr. The other was scanned by the v600 scanner. You will see that the scanner and ICE software cleansed the old slide of its mildew without any chemicals. The difference is pretty amazing.

Best Scanner I've seen
If you are looking for an all in one negative/slide/photo scanner look no further. This thing is the bomb! I got rid of all my darkroom equipment years ago along with all my film cameras, but still had a lot of 6x6 and 35mm negatives and Kodachrome slides. I have been converting all these to
digital files. I am enjoying images I haven't seen literally in decades! It also handles prints of any size up to 8x10. There is a brief learning curve and you need to experiment with all the settings and how to use the included holders. Also, when working with negatives and slides, just like you were working in darkroom, dust is a real PITA at these levels of enlargement. Compressed air and a soft brush are helpful. You get a copy of Photoshop with your purchase too. Only criticism is the "ICE" feature is only useful in certain situations and actually causes distortion and other problems in others. Picture is actual example of V600 scanned 6x6 negative, cropped, corrected and retouched with PS.

Needed it to scan old slides with Digital ICE...
I had a bunch of 25-year-old slides from my Army days on Johnston Island I wanted to convert to digital. I contemplated sending them off to a scanning service but decided to give this scanner a try first and I'm glad I did. I've attached a picture looking out at the end of the island over our ball field. The second picture was scanned with Digital ICE and you can see how it removed all the dust and imperfections that were left on the slide even though I cleaned it using canned air. I would buy it again.
