Conclusion

This review is approaching its end, so it’s time to sum it up in a few words. And in my opinion, the Epson Perfection 4490 Photo is a somewhat insipid, aimless product. It has a rather high price ($250) but lacks some useful functions. I don’t like that the scanner’s bed is not firmly fixed within the case. As a result, the lid lock shifts the bed when you close the lid down. The holders for transparent materials might have been better as I mentioned earlier. Digital ICE for Films doesn’t work correctly with some types of film, and there is no technology to remove dust and scratches from reflective originals.

I don’t think this scanner is going to be popular because there are better and cheaper models on the market. As a result, the Perfection 4490 is a scanner that for the first time put the perfection of the series in doubt.

Highs:

  • Functional software
  • Good scanning quality

Lows:

  • Unhandy holders for 35mm film strips
  • Imperfect operation of Digital ICE for Films technology
  • Doesn’t support Digital ICE for Prints
  • Doesn’t support Dust Removal with photographs
  • Priced too high, obviously
