Summary: Mac users should not panic. This scanner works perfectly well using your Mac's Image Capture function. Connect the scanner to your Mac with a USB cable. Open Finder, find Image Capture and click on it to open the application. Choose the Epson GT-15000 in the devices box.
Summary: Purchased this scanner used and got a great deal online, I did have some issues installing the software on window 7 OS, it worked on one machine without issues, tried to use on another pc with same OS, but could never get the software to work, the speed is fantasic as well as the results, it has a...
Summary: I bought this item for our small architectural office to do 11x17 scans. This is a great large format scanner. It comes with a watered down version of Adobe photoshop that is easy to learn and use. It also comes with Abbey Finereader which is also a plus.
Summary: Sent back a MicroTek scanner 9800 because it was crap and their tech support was worthless and bought this Epson. On the MicroTek my scans came out with blue backgrounds even after repeated calibrating. The Epson produces crisp, clear, perfect scans and no dreaded blue background to try to fix.
Summary: Had the GT for over a month. Set up took 10 minutes, software is very intuitive, easy to set up and use. I looked at several others offered by Amazon (Microtek, Xerox, etc), but the Epson reliability sold me on this one. And I made the right choice. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Summary: I travel a lot and have the scanner shipped to various cities. The scanner has never failed regardless of the high usage or impacts from the abuse of shipping. Very fast, east to use and clean optics makes this scanner a great purchase. We like it so much the company is purchasing another one.
Summary: I am an illustrator with a moderate amount of computer skills. I would rather spend more time painting than worrying about every little tweaking detail offered by many of the higher end scanners. It was simple to plug in, load the software and begin scanning in Photoshop.
Summary: I received my 15000 two days ago, and set-up took briefly about five minutes. The only difficulty I had was finding where to place it in my crowded studio. It fit perfectly on a microwave stand with casters, close enough to connect to my CPU, but the advantage is that I can move it if needed.
