I am having difficulty using my HP Scanjet 4570c and am thinking of replacing it with the Epson 4490 Photo Scanner.
Would appreciate any comments about my proposed purchase.
Thanks

I think that is a good choice. I now occasionally use my Canon MP 760 and it is quite good. I had (still have, in the loft) a Nikon Coolscan 2 film / slide scanner , but it was SCSI and when I changed computers it went into retirement . If you do a lot of film negative or slide work maybe get a special dedicated scanner but I think you will be happy with the Epson for occaional 35 mm use plus of course it's flatbed use.

A Combi flat bed/film scanner is fine for every day work.
Only those who desire maximum rez for large format printing would consider a dedicated film scanner these days
The Epson is a good choice.

I have saved myself a hundred quid. My Hp Scanjet 4570c would not work with IE7. Going back to IE6 resolved the problem and I am happily copyng slides to a reasonable (For me) standard. Who says that new means progress ?
Thanks for all comments.
