LONG BEACH, Calif. – May 4, 2010 – Building on its heritage of manufacturing industry-leading digital imaging products, Epson®today announced two all-purpose scanners that provide unique and intelligent imaging technologies at affordable prices. The Epson Perfection® V33 and Epson Perfection V330 Photo are the newest scanners to join Epson’s award-winning Perfection line, which are engineered to fulfill virtually any household’s scanning needs such as digitizing/archiving photos, documents, 3D objects and more.

Priced at $89 and $119 (respectively), both models feature 4800 x 9600 dpi optical resolution and the same wide range of user benefits and technologies, including a 180-degree lid for scanning oversized objects.
