        I tried my 2450 with 35mm slides just after I got it, to
compare it with my Minolta Scan Dual II. I would say the results were
quite acceptable, and would probably make decent 8x10 prints, but not
surprisingly the Minolta was noticeably better. The two shortcomings
of the Epson were a slight lack of sharpness and a slight "halo"
around high-contrast edges. Colour seemed very good.
        I haven't tried the 2450 with 35mm negatives, but it worked
well with 645 negatives.
        I used the 2450 with both the Epson software and Vuescan.
Each seemed to have its strengths and weaknesses, but both gave
acceptable results. The Epson TWAIN 5 software is much improved over
the version used with my old Epson Expression 636.
        For a "do-everything" scanner at a low price, the 2450 seems
a good choice.
