For most folks - installing this will be a breeze.
Again - please note, although the Set Up documents mentions it, this scanner DOES NOT contain SilverFast 4.0 software. SilverFast 4.0 is now out of date and is not supported. Use *any* TWAIN compliant imageing program - including Adobe Photoshop 5 LE which DOES ship with this scanner.
These Epson Expression 836XL scanners are sealed from EPSON. Please note that although EVERY item has been tested by Epson to ensure that these items work, should you have any problems with these scanners over the next 1 year from the date or purchase, please refer to EPSON for repair.
