So in our lab is the latest flatbed scanner, the Epson V600 driver. In the company’s lineup, this model will take place between the Perfection V500 Photo on one side and a pair of more expensive Perfection V700 Photo and V750 Pro units on the other.
Let’s start, as usual, with the external examination. The body and cover of the scanner are made of dark plastic with a matte surface. Two details enliven the exterior of the device: the silver trim around the lower part of the cover, and the glossy surface of the front panel. The lid has the manufacturer’s logo embossed in silver letters. The dimensions of the device are 280x485x118 mm.
The control panel is located in the front part of the housing. There are four buttons for quick applications launches marked with icons, to the left of which there are two light indicators. One of them signals the power on, and the second one indicates the occurrence of malfunctions. There is a recess directly above the buttons for a comfortable grip on the cover. There is also another light indicator, which is located under the buttons and has a diffuser in the form of a narrow and long horizontally oriented strip.
On the back of the case are connectors for the power supply and interface cable. This is also where the transport lock slider is located. When closed it mechanically blocks access to the USB connector, making it impossible to connect the cable. It is also worth mentioning the presence of a very useful in our circumstances “hard” power switch, which is located on the right side of the case.
The buttons on the control panel are set by default to launch the Epson Scan scanning control program as well as utilities for copying images, sending them by e-mail and saving them in PDF format. You can change the functions of each button in the Epson Event Manager utility window, if necessary.
One interesting feature of this model, hidden inside the case, should not be left out. The Perfection V600 Photo uses a line of white LEDs as the light source. Of course, in this case we are not talking about CIS technology but about a scanner with a full-fledged optical system and CCD lines. Using white LEDs instead of a fluorescent lamp makes it possible to reduce energy consumption and also to minimize the warm-up time when switching on the scanner and switching between scanning modes.
The CCD lines of this scanner contain 54,400 elements each. Accordingly, with a tablet width of 216 mm (8.5 inches), we obtain a hardware resolution of 6400 ppi. In addition, the scanner is implemented with Micro Step technology, which allows, according to the manufacturer, to increase the resolution to 9600 ppi.
The connection procedure for the scanner does not cause any difficulties. The external power supply has a plug-in power cable, which is very convenient. Unlike adapters with a built-in plug, this design does not block neighboring extension cord outlets.
