Epson Perfection V850 Pro Photo Scanner. Install and Auto Mode Test

EPSON sent me a new Epson Perfection V850 Pro Photo Scanner for evaluation. The installation was simple, and a couple of out of the box tests in 'Full Auto Mode' worked well.

  1. A funny thing happened when I was setting up the scanner, I got an email suggesting that I Preserve my Memories for Future Generations. Ha!
