Archive Scanner

By Anonymous from Newport News, VA on 09/26/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been using the scanner for 4 years without any significant problems except it sometimes misfeeds. I believe the misfeed is due to the condition of the paper I'm feeding. It always amazes me how it can grab just one sheet, from a large stack, and feed it through. I didn't give it 5 stars because the output tray could be larger (extend out); i.e., a large stack of paper, fed through, gets jammed on the output tray -- this requires me to monitor the output tray if a large stack of paper (15 sheets or more) is being scanned.

epson scanner

By acm01 from GEORGIA on 07/25/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The scanner brand new needed a lot of baby sitting of the paper being fed into the scanner. It says it can scan more than 20 pages at a time without multiple pages being sucked in together, however, I am down to feeding 4 pages in at a time now, as it will start to suck multiple pages if I put more than 4 pages in at a time. however, scanning pictures works great, the quality of the finished scan is beautiful.

Scanner Heaven

By icabob from Georgia on 07/21/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We keep almost no paper documents since we started with the GT-S50! It was easier to keep some due to the need to load, turn the document over for double sided items and the snail speed for a long document. All of this is history with the GT-S50 Scanner!!! I am delighted. It scans quickly, clearly with automatic page reduction and double sided. If you want to end the mountains of paper storage, get a Pro GT-S50 and eliminate the junk paper dilema.

great product but not working with Win 8.1

By GINNY from Tucson, AZ on 01/12/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was a great product until I had to update my computer after 7 years. I've tried everything to get it to work with my Windows 8.1...it just won't work. I even bought a new USB cord thinking that was the problem. I can't seem to find the right driver to get the error resolved. Any suggestions or solutions to this problem would be great. So right now, I don't recommend anyone to purchase this machine.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

By Aggie from Fredericksburg, VA on 12/16/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had my scanner for almost 4 years and use it all the time. My husband is a cancer patient and I have had numerous forms for insurance companies and the place of employment, etc. I am an independent contractor and use the scanner for my business. The one complaint I have is that the only software I was able to find is Presto Page Manager. If you have any other recommendations of software for my scanner, I would like to be informed of such.

Office workhorse worthy

By Tess from Salt Lake City on 11/17/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We picked this up in Feb of 2014. love it. It is a workhorse. It has accomplished thousands of pages as we work towards a paperless office. We are not sure how to get rid of the squeaking wheels, and after a while of constant scanning it will make us reboot, but other than that, the quality, and performance have been fantastic....

Good product, gone bad

By Examiner from Fergus Falls, Minnesota on 07/25/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this several years ago, and didn't ever use the high capacity built into the machine. It worked well for several year, but now insists on trying to do multiple copies of about ten of each document, making me wait until it finishes its errors, which forces me to go onto the screen and adjust manually to keep the one good one I need. The company's support people tell me I can't resent the machine to do only one copy. They said the motherboard must be faulty. Warranty is expired, and I don't know what the cost to fix might be. Good machine when it functioned as intended. I just need to know how to reset the # of copies thing, and can't find anything in the user manual.

Great Scanner!

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was using Xerox scanners and tried one of this out due to price. It was amazing! The GT-S50 feeds paper what will chock the Xerox and keeps on moving. I've deployed about a dozen of these to customers and they all love them.

Replacement Parts an Issue

By WboroMoe from Sherman, TX on 07/09/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

When first purchased I would have given much higher marks. Even through the first year. But by time the roller and pad needed replacing the second time the parts were 'out of stock' and are still unavailable six months later. I have since purchased another company's products to replace our 3 GT-S50s here.

Bottom Line:

I have scanned well over 25,000 pages, one side and two and have had great results. The only thing that is important is to clean the scan windows all the time. The scanner has been a life saver.

By ja from Omaha, NE on 06/19/2014


Bottom Line:

We have five of these that we are unable to get replacement rollers for. They are not much good if you are unable to use them. This item has been on back order by the manufacturer for 4 months that I am aware of. It is ridiculous!

By Dave from Twin Cities, MN on 04/07/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This has been a work horse for our office. This is our second unit,not that the first failed, but due to the durability and all the docs we scan we decided to add to our overall plan which required another. For the features it provides all we need and have not had any issues whatsoever. Plus the setup is a breeze.

By jwakers23 from Rowlett, TX on 03/21/2014


Bottom Line:

This scanner is 'da Bomb!' I can't believe how easy it is to install and use. I purchased this as a 'refurbished' scanner from Epson along with a 3-year replacement warranty. I save over 50% of the purchase price of a new one and it is awesome.

Excellent scanner for document only.

By Paul54 from Lansing, MI on 01/15/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This scanner was very easy to use and have many choice of formats to store the documents. The scanning speed is very fast so that I can scan 20 page documents in double side in a few seconds. This scanner provides less resolution than my flat bed and the color copy is not suitable for archiving. In fact, it has a blue streaks in one part of the scanned image. The plastic sheet protector has a neat instruction on the top part of the sheet but it becomes annoying to see the instruction for every other pages when scanning double sided paper (like magazine paper). I decided not to use PaperPort-11 which was bundled with the scanner since it does not offer much advantage for my archiving. It would be nice to see if a good file organizer software is bundled. In general, I am satisfied with the product.

Disapointed

By AnonymousTexan from Houston, TX on 01/04/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This would be a great scanner if it was not prone to frequently feeding multiple pages at once. Because of that, it is necessary to watch it while scanning.

Disappointed

By Anonymous from Illinois on 12/20/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was told that this scanner would scan documents directly into Word as my old HP Scanner would. It doesn't. To get editable text, I need to have software such as AbbyFine Writer. Other than the inability to scan directly into Word, the scanner works fine, especially if you want PDF files.

Bottom Line:

I've use one of these scanners now for 3 years and have no problems with them (2) They work as advertised with no glitches and sharp clean images. I bought one for our church and liked it so much that I bought one for myself. Haven't had any reason to dislike or be disappointed by the unit. This unit is very easy to use with both my PC and Mac.

GREAT SCANNER, GREAT PRICE

By Anonymous from Las Vegas, NV on 12/16/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Epson GT-550 has run for over two years with no problems. It feeds good and almost never jams. My previous scanner jammed a lot. The GT-550 software works seamlessly with Adobe Acrobat and other programs requiring a scanner, For the price you cannot beat it, and I wonder if the really expensive scanners are better. Almost no trouble; what more can you ask for?

GT550 Revisited

By Len from South east US on 12/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased the GT550 after returning a Snap jet piece of junk.. A little higher in price at the time but overall worth it. The GT 550 serves as my main scanner it seldom has a jam images are crisp & clean. Only wish is a double feed sensor that works. As most paper feeders it does have a double feed at times. Overall this is a robust scanner an well worth its cost.

Excellent medium-duty scanner

By timziffle from Issaquah, WA on 12/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this standalone unit after having trouble with multiple all-in-one printer/scanners, and with another brand standalone. The feeders on even some of the better units just do not stand up over time. The feeder on the Epson has been flawless over time (so far), and the software that comes with the unit does a great job of creating pdf output (my preferred format). Throughput is pretty fast at the grayscale output I prefer, and is not bad at color, either. I do not really have much need for the OCR portion of the software, but it is fast enough that I have not bothered to turn it off for everyday scanning. The footprint is pretty compact, and can be made even smaller when not in use. This scanner has exceeded my expectations, and I look forward to many years of reliable use. It is just what I was looking for to drastically reduce paper record storage requirements.

Excellent performance

By Gil H from Upstate NY on 11/27/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This unit only took 15 minutes to get set up and working in production. The unit itself performs no less than as claimed, and the PaperPort software it was packaged with did an excellent job. I had to adjust the contrast, brightness, and scan resolution with some sample duplex scans to get the right balance of image quality, scan speed and resultant PDF file size, but once I had that locked down things went very quickly. The paper sheets in the ADF were processed without error, no jamming, no double or partial feeds. I have some colleagues looking to get a similar capability for some audit related work, and I have been crowing about how nice a unit this is for that purpose. I will be ordering a 2nd unit for another location of our within the week.

Not for the tech-unaware Mac User

By Jim from Greenville, SC on 09/10/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Turns out that all the accompanying software with this scanner -- while advertised as a complete suite -- is written for the steam-powered PowerPC Macs, not for the ones made in the last 4 years. Using image capture, I can do what I need to, but the software that comes with the unit is worse than useless, since there are instructions sending you to the web for the wrong software. Tech support in the Phillipines helped me out, but I wish I hadn't bought this one.

Only good for about 6,000 scans

By UCSDIT from San Diego on 09/10/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We purchased 6 of these for various locations that we support and 3 of them have stopped working. The sensor that detects whether paper is present in the scanner or not malfunctioned on all three units after about 6,000 scans. They worked well until they died - we felt we should get more scans than that out of the unit. The fact that the same problem/part is malfunctioning in half of the units we bought seems to point to an overall manufacturing/design defect.

NO MANUAL! NO DOWNLOADABLE MANUAL AVAILABLE!!

By John from Iowa, USA on 09/02/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I suppose this is an acceptable scanner. It seems to work. What REALLY chaps my hide, though, is that Epson is so paranoid that they don't even allow owners to download a complete manual for the machine. I can understand their wanting to save paper and printing costs, but the COMPLETE manual should be downloadable for owners to print for themselves. You'd think that several hundred bucks worth of equipment would include access to a printable copy of the manual. Not Epson! It's HTML or nothing! BAD choice, Epson.

Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 Document Scanner

By Banjo Eagle from Michigan on 08/03/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The GT-S50 is an excellent scanner. It is fast, has lots of scanning options as to type of output, eg, jpeg, pdf, etc. and has been very reliable. It handles lots of difference size documents. Occasionally the output will not match the options specified in the software. For example, a page of a document may not be rotated as specified. Very minor occurrence. To sum up: high quality output, fast, and reliable.

Terrific scanner

By Jeiel49 from Midlands, UK on 08/01/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been transferring some 40 years of paperwork - personal and work related - to computer. The quality of the originals has ranged from the reasonable to the atrocious and the scanner has taken it all in its stride, churning through thousands of sheets in a couple of weeks. There have been several jams caused by mis-shapen, torn, folded, dog-eared and stapled sheets (loaded inadvertently) but these have been dealt with very easily. The scans have been of consistently high quality. I have no problem recommending this scanner to anyone.

Fast and accurate

By 3rdcat from Bluffton, SC on 08/01/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Pro GT-550 is fast and accurate, with a very small footprint. It was easy to install, and handles both large and small scans with no troubles. The files it produces are legible, and I've had no trouble converting the scans to text for editing. For the price, it met my expectations with only one exception. (The document feeder slot is a little touchy, probably due to the speed with which it feeds the sheets for scanning. If any of the sheets are not perfectly fed, the device will jam and wrinkle or fold the documents. I suspect that problem is actually operator error.)

Workforce Pro GT-S50

By Dagga Boy from NJ on 08/01/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am overall pleased with the product however the first unit I purchased didn't work out of the box and had to be returned. I purchased a different Epson product which worked for three scans before that and my wife bought an Epson DS-30 PORTAB that also promptly ceased to function. I guess the forth time is the charm but the inconvenience of the returns almost made me select a different company.

Fatal Error FE1 Out of box

By ChrisG from Dallas, TX on 07/22/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The scanner will turn on, but any activity leads to a display of Fatal Error FE1. It will not run any diagnostic or scan and has been determined to be defective. I was disappointed to see this has been a common problem after reading good reviews on this scanner. If the next one is defective, I will be switching to another brand.

Epson GT-S50 Review

By Land Man 1 from Abilene, TX on 07/12/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I used the GT-S50 with another company for the last year and a half, and I am very pleased with its speed, scan clarity, and low file memory footprint. Document scans use about a tenth of the memory my other scanner does. It is a great value for the price, and I would recommend it to anyone. Naturally, when I began work for another company, I requested the GT-S50 for myself and am happy with my decision. It is easy to set up, takes up little desk space, and works great. Thanks for a great product!

Great scanner, liked the first one so much I bought another. Both are used every day. Setting up was easy and I like the fact you can do business cards, driver license & credit card scans. Does double sided scans fast. Only down side is you can not scan books or have to make a copy and then scan. I can live with that. Highly recommend this scanner.

Fatal Error on 2 Scanners

By CJ from Ames, IA on 06/12/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The first scanner I bought never worked. I kept getting "fatal error" every time I tried to scan. They were nice about replacing it, but the new one only worked twice and I got "fatal error" again. Don't buy this scanner. Googling "GT-S50" and "Fatal Error" shows many people have had this problem.

Absolutely Fast Scanner

By Rick from Santa Rosa, CA on 06/10/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been using the Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S80 Document Scanner for over 1 year now and I'm absolutely satisfied with it's performance. The scanner is extremely fast and has a very high quality image. My only complaint is that occasionally the drivers on my PC lose track of the scanner and I will then have to turn it off and back on so that the software can see it. I strongly recommend this printer for large volume high speed scanning.

Problems with the setup

By earlg8242 from Norfolk VA on 05/31/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I received the GT-S50 and started to set it up on a Windows 7 system. The disk process seems slow but completed successfully. I attempted to scan and received an error. I cleared the paper and restarted the scanner multiple times. After downloading the driver from the website I made a good scan. It has been working good since the driver download. I have set up multiple scanners and this has been one of the more difficult. The quality compares to the other scanners I have setup, but I would not say it would be my first choice purchase.

Very Capable Machine

By ImagingNut from San Diego, CA on 05/07/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Got this unit 4 days ago to replace an AIO not from Epson that was painfully slow at simplex scanning. What a remarkable difference! Throughput is dependent on host computer, as it blazes with a recent Mac Mini and is a little slower with a gen one G5 machine. Feed is relatively robust--800 pages of sometimes questionable paper and fewer than 5 misfeeds so far. I have worked well though a 4-year backlog of scanning quickly and shouldn't fall behind again.

Versatile quick scanner

By Ken from Boston MA on 04/02/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I used one of these in my office for two years and liked it so much I bought one for home. I've had a few feed problems but there is usually a good reason such as thin sheets or punched holes that stick. The software could be a little more user friendly and flexible, but it gets the job done well. I dropped to 4 stars because the paper guide is not long enough to always keep the paper straight while scanning, and the receiving tray does not always keep the paper from falling out. Scanning quality is flexible and excellent with several resolutions and output formats to choose from. The included OCR software works well. I also scan photos and the resolution and color accuracy is good. I would buy another!

Why did I wait so long?

By Edward Sr. from Flat Rock ,Michigan on 03/30/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've been using a flat bed scanner for the last five or so years and been somewhat happy,but now I am totally amazed at how efficiently the new Pro- GT-s50 copies single and multiple pages. As I learn each new feature I am encouraged to experiment with both the program and the hardware because I know I am finally getting a hold on my record keeping and eliminating useless paperwork in my filing cabinets. Thanks Epson

GT-S50 Does not age well

By davehep from Washington state. on 03/28/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have had a GT-S50 for about a year now. After about 6 months the scanner started to have problems. It stopped pulling all of the pages through. I would have to take the pages out and start again. Then it started pulling some of the pages through at an angle and wrinkling them. It doesn't do it all the time but often enough it makes it hard to scan a pile of pages. Then it started turning up the corner on some of the pages, sometimes the right side sometimes the left side. It worked very well when new. For the first 6 months I would have recommended this scanner to everyone.

The GT-550 has many excellent features. Scanning directly to a specific folder on the computer. The scanning and converting to pdf's is slower than I expected. Other features which I am learning to use is the Presto Biz card software. It sounds interesting. I have not yet used it.

Great scanner for the price!

By jtclarkcpa from Michigan on 03/25/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used the $900 scanners, but didn't want to spend that much, so took a chance on the GT-S50. I handle large quantities of paper, but store all my files paperless, so speed was my most important criteria. It has not let me down! There are a few little quirks that are easy to work around - I would expect that just about any office machine would have small issues. It seems to lose it's connection to my laptop periodically, but I just shut it off, then back on again. Also, the feeders sometimes can't pull the next sheet, but just putting pressure on that sheet pulls it through fine. The only other thing I would change is with the software. I'd like to see larger images when reviewing (before I save), and have the ability to add pages after reviewing (from what I can tell, you can only add pages before you review).

Great scanner

By Robin from Wilmington,MA on 03/25/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Overall this scanner works great. I use it all day long and it never jams and the scans are nearly perfect. I do wish that there are a some more scanning options for the software. And the option of placing the scanner to use it in a bottom feed would be more convenient since it is a desktop piece of equipment, and I am constantly reaching up to feed it through the top. Other than that. I would highly recommend this scanner. Very good for high usage.

Great Scanner

By QBranch from AQ, NM on 03/25/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Epson scanner is the best scanner I've ever owned, and the included software pays for itself once over. The ONLY drawback is that when feeding thee intake tray with magazine pages, they tend to jamb or take in multiple ages, being so slick. I resolved this by tilting the scanner back about 45 degrees in a Styrofoam block, cutout to just fit the scanner's base in and this scanner will feed a 120-page magazine perfectly. Most I've been able to feed unattended was 400 pages of a printed paperback book. Also, being able to create custom page sizes helps reduce total file size and feeding both sides at one pass is soooo much faster. The PDF software allows one to select pages to keep or delete before finalizing the document and to feed add'l pages after the tray is empty. HIGHLY recommended! QBranch

Epson GT-S50

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent workhorse. Fast, accurate scanning and both sides of a page in a single pass. One in a while, goes south and .pdf software cannot find the scanner. Would be nice if Epson had its own scanning software -- perhaps there would not be a problem with recognition.

Excellent Scanner

By Bisnesstech from Portland Oregon on 03/25/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used other scanners in the past, but none were as reliable as the Epson GT-S50! I use this scanner everyday and it never misses a page. I frequently scan stacks of 100+ pages. It is accurate, fast, and easy to use. There is a trick when putting pages in the scanner that I learned, and that is to put the stack in at a slight angle to match the feed slope. If you do this it never misses or jams. I just use Epson Scan for all my work and save everything to my Sky Drive. Get one, and happy scanning.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've used this scanner about 6 mos. now and have about 3 jams all the fault of paper sticking. I test drove a Snapscan prior and this runs rings around it. Only fault I can say is the interface with adobe during the insert page function asking before or after defaulting to after. Wish it could be changed to default to before. I've used several scanners over the years and this I like the best. Good speed and quality of images. Straight media path with almost no jams.

I absolutely love this scanner.... only regret is I did not purchase it sooner. I've eliminated two 4-drawer file cabinets from my home office! I'm not sure why but the feeder sheet (for small receipts etc.) was not included in the box when I purchased it; I guess I should have checked the box before leaving the store.

It Really IS A WorkForce - or WorkHorse

By Rusty W. from Dallas, Texas metro area on 03/25/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the GT-S50 after doing extensive online research on the three available, reasonably priced scanners available. From the user reviews the GT-S50 seemed to be the best choice for the money. I have not been disappointed. I use the scanner every day for multiple document types, and love its size, speed and reliability. I'm still learning and discovering how to use its features and capabilities. I think the software included with the scanner could be better (or maybe I should just learn how to use it better) - I don't use the business card software after trying it early on... it seemed that correcting the scanned card images took more time than just entering them by hand. Also, based on other revews, I did not install the PaperPort software. Otherwise, I'm very pleased with my scanner. It saves me time, money, and frustration.

Best Scanner

By MsLeslie from Biloxi on 03/25/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Don't buy that one you see on TV. This one is 'way better. I can scan my documents one at a time or all at once. It feeds the docs just like a printer and sends them to the file of your choice. I only wish the software was a little easier to use, and I do wish it worked with linux. Still, I wouldn't want to go back to living without this great machine.

This scanner is easy to set up and operate. the hardware quality is what I have come to expect from Epson. I purchased the GTS50 in order to digitize and eliminate many paper files that are taking up valuable space. It has met my expectations. As a OS10.8 user I wish there had been the same quantity of software available, with the scanner, as there was for Windows users.

great machine

By mspheist from WV on 03/25/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been using this scanner for a year now and I have nothing bad to say about it. It scans great and I love being able to do the business cards also. The color scans also turn out very nice. I had read a few naysayer reviews, but I have not had one problem with it. I think it is very user friendly. I don't scan hundreds of pages a day, but it fits my needs very well. If I do have a document with more pages than it will hold in one scan and it needs to be kept together, I do find it easier to scan them in small bunches and save them and then combine into one document. That way I can count the pages and make sure it hasn't missed any as I have found that that has happened on occasion when I scan a lot of pages. But since I don't scan a lot of large document normally, it is no problem for me to do that. There may be a minor adjustment that I would need to make for that, but since it doesn't happen very often, I just do it my way. And, if I did scan a numerous pages into one document from the start, I would still count the pages. Plus, scanning large batches seems to take a while to process, (or maybe I am just impatient) but the smaller batches, I can be counting and getting things ready for the next batch while it is processing. I figure computer speed has a lot to do with that also. I do court reporting and my work at times involves scanning things for exhibits for legal documents and I have to make sure that a page has not been skipped so doing it in small batches benefits me in that way anyway. Easier to count than a several hundred page document and then get interrupted and lose count and have to start over. Again, I normally don't have that many 100+ pages to scan in one document. But, overall, I am glad I made the purchase of the Epson WorkForce and have recommended it to anyone looking for a scanner.

GTS50

By DavidB from Chicago, IL on 03/25/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Overall, I am very happy with my scanner purchase. I scan 2-300 pages per month on average and it has been truly glitch free for over a year now. My only gripe is the software and the absence of a US letter size mode. A4 is the closest and while it works, it's just an annoyance that one would think could be easily fixed in a driver update. That issue aside, quality and reliability has been exceptional and I would definitely recommend this scanner to others in need of a small business or high end home unit

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a wonderful scanner. It's footprint is small and it's easy to store. The feeder is nearly flawless and the end product looks great. I have scanned up to 600 pages in a day and it generally is quite happy. Occasionally, it's cranky and grabs two pages at once but fanning the pages tends to reduce the possibility. And it is FAST FAST FAST!!! I haven't tried to scan anything but standard sized paper but that's enough for me. I've scanned documents up to 50 pages without a hiccup. Buy it. You won't be unhappy and you'll ask how you ever got along without it.

By Gregg from Chicago, IL on 03/25/2013


Bottom Line:

The software that comes with this product is not easy to install, does not work well with others, and has little or no tech support to help you through the installation process. My other scanner that I purchased from another company was cheaper and in my opinion much better at setup, easier to operate but with a slightly smaller capacity of feed pages.

Big time saver

By real estate and loan guy from Seattle, WA on 02/26/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used this for about a year. It really saves a lot of time. Easy installation. I use it for both real estate agreements and mortgage loan disclosure packets. It can take a pack of mixed letter and legal size papers and quickly scan them and automatically convert them to a pdf file! If I have double sided documents I just click a button and is scans the double sided docs at the same speed. It takes 20 to 30 pages no problem, they just fly through. I do mostly black and white, but the color scanning works fine too. I am very happy with it!

Works pretty good

By DLR from Indianapolis, IN on 02/23/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

At 300 dpi this really scans fast and it's really good about scanning a bunch at once. It can struggle a little if the pages are folded because they want to fold over and pull throught multiple. The CON for this is the PaperPort software. It comes with Epson Scan and PaperPort. PaperPort is nice for saving and filing but Epson Scan has a setting for a size of AUTO and I just can't get Paper Port to do the AUTO size so I don't like PaperPort.

Easy Set Up and Install. The included CD does all the work. I tried a couple of test scans and it's fast. Quality of scan is good. You can install the program and use the scanner on all your PCs and your Mac's. Although it is a desktop scanner, its light weight and fairly small which makes it somewhat portable. The lift-up and pull-out trays makes for an easy set up and a quick close up operation to be moved to a new location in your office or home. I would recommend this product to my family and friends.

Very Dissapointed with GT-S50 Scanner

By JimDFW from Dallas, TX on 12/27/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Only having this scanner for less than a month I find myself reloading and rescanning documents EVERY time I "Try" to use this scanner. Right out of the box it has given me problems. I've read the user guide and have wiped the rollers with a lightly moistened #with water# lint free cloth. I haven't tried to jam a whole document into the feeder. I've made sure the pages are all in good shape #no staples, creases, folds, etc#, and it still stops scanning at anywhere from the 2nd page to the 180th page #180 has been the record#. I am very frustrated with the performance of this product. One star is too high in my opinion.

I bought this product 2 weeks ago and am still in the set-up process. The hardware seems very good, but the software is poorly documented, at least for the new user. I feel like I need my own IT department to interface the various software programs that come with the scanner. The whole interconnect fo hardware and software is very obtususe requiring much trail and error, and therefore time. I would discribe my PC expertice level as above average, but this has been a challange.

I read through your reviews in order assess the scanner that would be best for my purpose of coping over 50' of genealogy papers and many photographs. Plus I wanted the option of duplex and also to add comments. But, being a septugenarian (70+) I also had to be able to understand how to scan easily and file to name folders . . . but, last night upon an easy installation, all went well and I am very pleased. Yes, excited too that I will work my way through both my lateral and vertical files and move into my new home with disks instead of cabinets. I highly recommend the Epson Wordforce Pro!

Pro GT-S50 Document Scanner

By Warren from Griffith, IN on 12/05/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far I have scanned 500 pages of articles into 50 MB of PDF files. I have a collection of clip files four file draws packed. Should fill a DVD when done. All works well and scan quality is excellent. The duplex (2-side) feature is a super feature making one PDF file from double sided magazine articles a breeze. Software provided works. Scanning is easy. But each PDF requires a setup for type of scan and color vs. B&W. Big scans like 57 pages fly through the scanner. Another feature is scanning multiple pages to a printer for a copy feature. works like a big priced office scanner on a desk top budget.

Not so great for high volume scanning

By Kasey from Ohio on 10/09/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I work at a medical office and we have recently switched over to having electronic medical records, which left someone (me), to scan in every old paper chart into the computer. The scanner boasts it can "scan up to 1,200 pages a day." Unfortounately, this is not the case. I scan, on avaerage, 950 pages a day and this scanner can not keep up. I have had nothing but problems with it. I am sure that it would be a great scanner for anyone not scanning at such a high volume, but it doesn't do the trick for me. I have put it through its paces and I have now went through 2 of these scanners (I am waiting on the 3rd one to arrive, because it too has broken.) Both scanners, after about 2 months of use, had started to scan papers in with a blue tint to the entire page. It's a mystery to me as to why this happens, but I can assure you that it does happen. In conclusion, great scanner for normal amounts of scanning, but people who have an abnormally high workload should really spend the extra money and get something rated for a higher daily maximum scanning rate because these scanners just can't withstand the brutal beatings.

Great Scanner!

By Debby from Ohio on 10/03/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have been using my scanner for a couple of weeks and I have got a Ton of work done!!! I use it for a small business working on going paperless and I am getting job files scanned and saved online with little effort. This is a great scanner. Saves by Color or Black and white easy to change or save as a pdf file. Only have had a couple of small paper jams that was easily corrected out of hundreds and hundreds of scans. Works faster then any scanner I have ever used. Can set it up to scan all to one file or save them individual so that you can click and post to different files. Very user friendly. I recommend this to anyone who has a lot of scanning to do.

I really like this GT " S 50. I must admit that I was extremely reluctant, but it was so easy! And, the PaperPort software that came with it makes scanning a snap. I'm extremely pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get rid of those mountains of paper! Rich

Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50

By Maria from Texas on 09/29/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great machine!!! I use it with a Mac Book Pro The improvement that I would love to see is an easier way to name the files. Now you have to rename each one for it to be useful after the file is completed. It would save time and the extra step if you could name before the scan. I have a small office that is trying to go paperless. I have had the machine 5 months. Great for all sizes of documents and large files. I would also like to be able to set for double side scan but skip the blank pages. It may be able to do that but I have not figured out how yet. The double side feature is a time saver. If you use it with Mac be sure and do not install with disk--go to web site. I have purchased a second one of these machines for a second location.

Great Product

By Dan G from Waianae, Hawaii on 09/28/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used many other scanners and find the Epson GT-S50 and software exceptional for the price point... The small footprint, 75 page auto document feeder, 600 dpi resolution, and ease of operation helps converting to a paperless office much less stressful.... I also was surprised at the way this scanner handles cash register receipts and the quality of the image of the sometimes less than ideal quality receipts... I will recomend this scanner to friends and associates .....

I love it

By Lori G from Tewksbury, MA on 09/26/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

First day using it and I know how to use it already. That's a plus. Easy to use, easy to change formats from PDF to JPG, etc. Extremely fast. Links to computer perfectly. Documents will go whereever you want them to, directly attached to an email, in your documents folder, pictures folder, etc. There's a lot more to learn once I have the time to read the user guide but even without reading it, I can scan documents. It's that easy.

Hard Worker and Accurate

By TheDeb from Charlotte NC on 09/14/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Only been using for two days, but so far, is pretty awesome. Totally does what is expected of it, is fast, OCR's fast, feeds perfectly. Bought more carrier sheets as I have a ton of receipts, and multiple carrier sheets slide though perfectly in one batch. Compared to machines at twice the price, this one is well worth the lesser money. The software is so easy to use. ONly criticism is the4 manual which must have been put together by some person who has never used manuals. Other than that, awesome machine.

Good, but...

By Dennis T from La Mesa, CA on 09/12/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

While I understand the desire to keep costs down by not including a users manual, I personally think that Epson missed the boat by not providing a users manual in .pdf form. I spent some time and wasted some paper to create what is missing, a complete users manual in .pdf form. The installation process was fairly easy. The installation instructions are far from complete, and the process will probably be somewhat frustrating for persons without much experience with HW/SW installations. As there were no instructions included relating to opening the unit, figuring out how to open a couple of panels to remove the orange packing tape took longer than expected.

This scanner may be fast when it works, but it jams regularly. I can't get anything done. I have used canned air to clean out lint, no help. I have scanned register receipts so I have to tape them to paper. Haven't been able to accomplish a thing. Will never buy one of these. This is my work scanner and is brand new.

Replacement Roller Assembly Kits not in stock

By DJD from Minneapolis, MN on 08/19/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a fine product but after awhile the rollers will wear out from use, which is standard on machines like this. The problem is that the replacement Roller Assembly Kit that would resolve this has not been in stock on the Epson site for months. When the rollers start to wear out you have to hand feed the machine if you can not replace the assembly. If you are considering buying this make sure that Epson has Roller Assembly Kits in stock before you do.

I have not had a chance ...

By Anonymous from Flagstaff, AZ on 08/19/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have not had a chance to figure everything out yet. I have only been using this for about five days loosely at best. I am attempting to scan loose leaf paper. One of the page review softwares for editing pdfs is too slow, perhaps my cpu, for my production, its save feature appears tohave some bugs. I suspect it requires a more powerful computer than my labtop. I found the scanneris sensitive to being level. A little to one side or the other will increase probability of paper misfeeds. I am still attempting to figure out how to scan Pen written mixed with pencil written docs. The scanner adjusts to pencil but as soon as the pen written page comes next it is barely reAdable after scan. Perhaps there is a setting for this. I have more questions than observations at this time. I could use an expert for some training.

Nice Change

By Frank from Outside Philadelphia, PA on 08/14/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What a nice change from scanning sheet by sheet! I pop in a group of letter-sized papers that I want to scan, the set-up is very cool - you can select from a miriad of settings to automate the process! You can pick things like: Correct skew, print only 1 [or both] side(s), make an 8.5x11 copy or clip the size to the sheet length, of course - set the dpi, etc. - very cool and fast - when the setup is the same as you chose before... nice change for me - wow - it really copies fast! How much time I wasted before I got this one. EPSON: I also use a bed scanner on another computer - since the programs both have the same name, but different functions. This, you could improve on [EPSON], since my fast computer gets the Document Feeder and the slow one now takes what seems a lifetime to use [for weird sizes, books, packages, etc.]. If you [EPSON] ever decide to allow both on the same computer with no conflicts, let me know.

I purchase this scanner because I had soo harder time using the small cannon scanner. It took soo may more steps to get a document scanned. I am retired and using this machine for personnel use. It is almost similar and the one that I used when I was working. I don't think I will use it to it max, But I think this will be an OK machine. Thank you Ted

A little confused

By Smokey from Los Angeles CA. on 08/06/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this Workforce Pro GT-S50 it's pretty quick I will give it that. The program is where I am not quite on line as of yet. I am running Mountain Lion on my IMac. I went to the site downloaded the drivers, the navigator,event manager. I have an all in one Epson Artisan 837 on the same machine the soft ware seems to recognize that machine. Not that I can not use the GT-S50 it's usable. I was hoping to be able to scan receipts to a Epson excel type of program but I am not finding that program. So it's a bit pain staking to go through each receipt & title it etc.. If any one knows who I might call to make this work better please let me know. Thanks MK

Workforce Pro GT-S50-Very Fast & Easy to Use

By Tax Guy from Lawrence, KS on 05/29/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I moved to a paperless office two years ago. My old scanner died after 5 years of heavy use for a small two-person office. I recently purchased the Pro GT-S50 and am very impressed with the speed of the scans, output quality and the ease of setting the scanner up. Based on other reviews, I was concerned with setting up the Pro GT-S50 with a Mac running Lion OSX. It was very easy to do (do not install the CD) and Epson provided a Lion update. In the first three days of operation, I scanned 253 tax returns (multiple pages each). The interface for the Mac is very easy to use and the output quality is excellent. The color tone is also excellent as various other items were scanned including notes on legal paper. I especially like the fact that I can control the output quality. The scanner is very fast and duplex scanning is outstanding. I would highly recommend this scanner for personal use or for a small business.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've been looking for a scanner that could handle multiple sizes of pictures and scan in an efficient manner. The Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 has been the best solution after trying three different models. I've already scanned some 1,000 pictures with sizes down to 2 x 3 inches....effortlessly. This is just what I was looking for. I hope it continues and that I would say the same in six months from now. The software in the box was out of date, but easily upgraded on the website.

Workforce Pro GT-S50

By C2tax from Conway, AR on 03/06/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love and hate this product. When it is working is scans quickly and does a very good job, scanning both sides of the paper at once, but since I have had this scanner it has been down more than it is up. It works for awhile and then it quits working, and Paperport when it is working is wonderful, but when it isn't working it is the worst. It just locks up and won't do anything. When the product quit working, supposedly because of the cable, it took down every scanning program I had with it and they all had to uninstalled and re installed to work correctly. Some of the programs I still haven't got working again. The Epson scan that comes with the program, scans OK but it takes a long time for it to process after the scanning is complete. It also names the files with a bunch of numbers and I have to rename every file and put it in the correct file, instead of letting me name it and tell it where to go when I scan it.

Great Scanner

By CGlaves from VA on 02/09/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was up and running in about 30 minutes. Updating to the newest software from website I think helped as did following the order of installation exactly. Using Win7, 32-bit apps. Scanner roared through 30 pages of 8.5x11 sheets of paper with 3-hole edges (some of which were torn) NO PROBLEM! I had all of them scanned to PDF in what was definitely less than 5 minutes but more like 2-3 with NO INTERVENTION. TWAIN driver was a plus but the included software (EPSON Event Manager) is doing everything I need so far. Highly recommend; it is saving me a lot of time compared to a flatbed scanner.

Quite happy with the Epson GT-S50

By ND from Lutz, FL on 12/29/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I just opened the box and installed the scanner in about an hour. Right off the box I was able to make it work very well and smoothly. I must admit that I had read reviews from others and was mentally prepared for difficult start up. I do agree that Epson Scan software and User's Guide on the disk leave a lot to be desired. The Guide is heavily hyperlinked, that is, nothing is fully explained in that subsection! You end up having to click several hyperlinks to get the idea as to how it works. But once I understood it, thanks to others' reviews such as 180 degree orientation to feed paper bottom first to avoid staple hole problems, it was easier to use the machine. Scanner in itself was impressive! The scanning speed, LCD display, 75 page auto feeder, and all the features packed in a small size and at a fairly good price, made me feel very good about the purchase I made. If not for the software and User Guide, I would call this a 5 star product. My primary targeted use is going to be scanning drawer full of documents to go paperless. I have not tried color documents, photos, or biz cards, but I think it will work out just fine.

Great scanner!!

By Dave from Boulder, CO on 10/19/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The GT-S50 works great! Scans are consistently good quality, no misfeeds or shredded documents (5,000 pages and counting). Recommend it for personal or small workgroup scanning of documents of up to ~50 images. Scanning larger documents (to one PDF) is likely to take a while because after the computer converts a scanned image, it must then append it to the PDF file ... which takes progressively more time as the file size grows. After about 25 images, the scanner starts slowing down. At 50 images, it's crawling (from 20 PPM to 1 PPM). My computer is a new MacBook Pro with the fastest processor, has lots of processing power ... and the GT-S50 consumes every bit of it. The only issue I've experienced was during setup. The quick start guide says to install the software first, then connect the scanner. The software CD wouldn't install automatically so I located the folder on the CD with the software and manually installed it. The installed software didn't work. I then went to the Epson Support website (under Mac OS X - Lion) which said don't use the CD, just connect the scanner and Mac OS X will discover it and install the correct driver(s) ... which it did. Nice if Epson updated the quick start instructions to save this bit of extra (unnecessary) work. A nit: all of the bundled software (OCR, bizcards, etc.) are Windows apps. Nice if Epson would reflect this in their product materials. Bottom line: if you have a Mac, you get a scanner ... no software. :-(

I have purchased workforce glass bed and multiple fed scanners before for customers with Scansoft Paperport 11 SE software and I have been happy with it. I wasn't disappointed with GT-S50 when I set it up for the girls in the office at Professional Business Services and used the software to read in documents even the page with large type and small symbols and with a minimum of fixing in word the document was filled in and e-mailed with no effort to their clients.

This machine is fast!

By Fiberfav from Eastern Townships, QC on 05/24/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this scanner because I was getting tired of doing all the work with my flatbed scanner. I sure was not expecting an improvement of that scale. It will scan 20 double sided pages at 300 dpi scan in the time it took me to scan "one" on the flatbed. It's accurate, fast and so far no paper jam at all. Totally recommended.

Thought it was ok... until

By Greg from Seattle WA on 04/22/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I come across a double sided page ever once in awhile. If you put this scanner on duplex scanning to catch these double sided pages it starts to act funny and jams.. You must have it eliminate blank pages in the preferences or youll end up with too many scans. When you do this the scanner scans about 15 pages, pauses then jams. Does this over and over and over. Dont know how to fix it. My scansnap doesnt do this. Greg

Not as good a represented

By Paul W. from Dallas, TX on 04/21/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am underwhelmed by this product, compared to a similar Fujitsu desktop scanner. Jams are common resulting in crinkled documents. The 40 ppm rating is an "idealized scan rate" to say the least. I find myself running down from my 3rd floor office to the second floor copy room use one of the MFP(s) unless it is an emergency. Look here, I have perfectly good, 20 year old Epson dot matrix printers and they are still in great shape. Hopefully scanner version 2.0 will be of the same calibre.

Excellent Doc Scanner with Reasonalbe Price

By Hamad from VA on 04/09/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

NOTE: Make sure the connected USB port has a bandwidth of USB 2.0 or higher, otherwise you won't get maximum efficiency (eg. scan speed) at reasonable quality (eg. 300dpi, no text recognition, ... etc.) 1) Hardware and firmware: - PROS: Fast boot and fast LED initialization. Includes power main switch as well as sleep mode when lid is shut. Nice control panel with large keys. - CONS: Low quality LCD (Minor). Lower paper tray has to sit on a flat surface, otherwise any little applied pressure could cause damage. It would have been nice if a USB 3.0 port was included, but I guess it was too soon when the product was released. Feeder width could have been made slightly larger than 8.5", reason is mentioned in software cons. 2) SOFTWARE (Mainly used EPSON Scan): - PROS: Highly configurable, but not the best in the market (eg. sharpness levels and color controls are not digitally scaled). -CONS: Not capable of fully scanning an 8.5" Doc. I tried to fix that problem by defining my own source size, but the software does not allow widths more than 8.5" plus the width of the feeder is limited. A slightly wider feeder along with this small fix on the software is highly advisable for future products. 3) CONCLUSION: Overall, great Doc. scanner with fairly good price. I would definitely recommend this scanner to whoever want to reduce their paper dependency and/or backup their Docs.

Swift and accurage

By Prof from Baltimore MD on 04/03/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am thrilled with the speed and the accuracy of the GTS50. I had been using my old work horse one page at a time Epson 1650. I am college professor and do a lot of textual scanning, using Omni-page for my OCR. With the GTS50 the process saves me immense amounts ot time. I am also a novelist and one of my out of print novels was typewriter composed and I had no electornic copy. I was able to tear apart a book and within an hour scan two sided all 542 pages. I now have an electronic copy should another publisher wish to print.

Your instruction sheet is ...

By Sandy from Acworth, Georgia on 03/12/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Your instruction sheet is incomplete. It does'nt show what all the buttons on the scanner are for. Which ones to push and how to make the copies come up on the computer. NOT ALL PEOPLE are computer savy. NEED BETTER INSTRUCTIONS

Best Scanner Ever!

By WILD DOG NETWORK from NEW YORK, NY on 02/01/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am a small business owner and handling paper is not what I am looking or had in mind when I started. I like the fact that I can scan my documents and have access of them everywhere I go. It is great if you accountant is out of state and the job needs to be done remotely. Creating a folder and placing receipts and bills never has been easy. In the past I did work as a document control clerk, scanning images to a data system to create electronic images using a high speed scanner. It is good to know Epson has created a product similar to it, but smaller. I do recommend it. I love my Epson GT-S50

Great Scanner - Very Fast

By Bill from NE Florida on 12/02/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have only had the scanner for a week and I am extremely pleased with it. It is very fast and readily handles a mix of paper sizes and formats. I have been able to eliminate a backlog of scanning in very little time. The double sided scanning on a single pass is a great convenience and time saver. I am using it with a PC running Windows 7 64-bit and it works fine, no problems at all. Highly recommended.

Deadline-dead

By Mike from Greeley, CO on 10/06/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Ordered a workforce GT-S80. Arrived seemingly intact. Problems with freezing after installation. I live in the middle of nowhere. All epson could do is suggest I take it too a service center. My deadline has passed and I am returning my unit. Too bad, looked like possibly a good unit. Support is paramount when it comes to matters like this as is time.

Best Sheet Fed Scanner

By Owen from Richland, WA on 05/18/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the second sheet fed scanner I've owned. It's excellent in text and color scans. It works great on documents with multi-colored texts and with images. Using the text enhanced mode increases the readability of grayscale scans.

GT-S50

By CTSJr from Houston, TX on 04/22/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was really surprised how well this scanner worked an how fast it read the documents! There was only one thing I dont like is how the software handles the paper jams! I noticed that the scanner buffer was faster than the software actually recognized the scan. For example, the scanner might scan 30 sheets and the software counts say 25 sheets and she a paper jam is recognized the process stops and waits for me to acknowledge the jam by pressing OK. Than God the software does process and save the 25 sheets. I wish the software would just empty the buffers 30 sheets and process the file. It is a waste of my time to press OK and then wait for the software to save the file which sometimes takes 5 to 10 minute to do the character recognition. Other than that " I love it!

Stopped Feeding

By FlyonWall from New York, NY on 03/12/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great looking and working machine but it stopped feeding in just over one year with little use. I've had many machines with feed in my life and none stopped completely. You press start, nothing feeds, but it scans "nothing" to a pdf.
