Before the end of 2011 I bought myself a new scanner.
My old HP All-In-One scanner/printer got the job done, but scanning was always frustrating because it never quite captured all the detail or accurate color of my art. I’d do my best to edit the images, but I knew it could be better.
I did a ton of research and decided that the Epson V-750 was the scanner for me. Most of the comparisons I saw online showed scans of slides and photographs, but I was encouraged by the detail that it picks up, even in photos, so I felt confident it would do my art justice. I wasn’t disappointed!
I won’t go on and on since the images speak for themselves.
Each of the following scans are minimally edited, mostly just cropped and a little dust clean up. In the images below, the HP scan comes first, followed by the same image scanned with my new Epson.
Isn’t the difference amazing? For me, the Epson really shines in the lightest areas. It captures the detail of every mark I make; even light pink colored pencil, or delicate graphite. I’m sure I could bring out the color in the Epson images, but I was so impressed by the quality right out of the scanner that I wanted to share them without any editing at all.
The Epson V-750 has been a dream come true so far. It’s fast, it’s quiet, and the image quality is impressive. I actually look forward to scanning. No more frustration!

Thanks for this – my Canon is having some issues and so I continue to search for a good scanner – i’ll add this one to the list of scanner to consider
or maybe not – it’s a little pricey for me 🙂
Nice to see the comparisons between the two scans and to see the quality difference. I’ll keep that scanner on my wish list!
It is definitely a great investment, and has made scanning a totally different and wonderful experience for me!
Oh this is helpful. I have an all-in-one and I am constantly wrestling to get scans that even remotely resemble the original. These comparison scans are tremendous. They say it all.
Yeah, I agree the scans do say it all. If you can justify the cost, I would highly recommend this scanner. Otherwise, I’d suggest checking out the consumer level Epsons, which I also looked into and seem to be the best available!
