The V330 (according to the Epson site) will scan 4 slides or 6 frames at a time; the V500 will handle 4 slides or 12 frames. My V700 will handle 36 frames at a time.
The V500 has a DMax of 3.4 - that reflects the density that it can scan, and you need at least 4.0 for slides. 3.4 is fine for negatives. The V330 does not have a claimed DMax on the site.
Remember when looking at the scanning resolution that a 35mm frame is only one inch in the short dimension; that means that if you want to print at 300dpi, the maximum print size can be obtained by simply dividing the scanning resolution by 300. In the case of a 4800 dpi scanner, that limits you to 12x18" in theory. In practice, you'll get less.
