Epson's Perfection V30 is an inexpensive flatbed scanner that boasts an optical resolution of 4800 dpi and 48-bit colors. It isn't the fastest scanner we've seen (nor does it produce the best image quality), but the V30 offers a terrific balance of quality, speed and value.
Flexible Hinge & Fully Open Lid Design
With an extendable hinge design, the V30 can scan documents of up to 25mm in thickness with the lid closed.
The scanner lid is also able to open fully to 180º to scan large document formats. Scanning of photos,
documents, books and thick material is convenient and easy with this hinge design.
Easy Push Buttons
The V30 has 4 push buttons with predefined functions to make scanning fast and convenient.
These 4 push buttons can be customized with Epson Event Manager
Traditional CCFL based scanners can require up to 45 seconds warm-up time at normal
room temperatures to allow the lamp to reach a consistent level of light output. With
ReadyScan technology the LEDs emit the correct light level within 0.15 seconds after ignition.
