Summary: It's difficult to find a decent large flatbed scanner nowadays because the demand is very limited compared to 8.5 x 11 scanners. This one was easy enough to set up and it captures good sharp scans. But for the price it's remarkable that it is so loud. It's the loudest scanner I've ever owned. I wouldn't mind if the noise was just during the scan (less than 30 seconds), but it remains for about 5-10 minutes afterwards until it automatically goes into Idle mode.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: The page manager is not working it ask for serial number which I have not got. I email Epson 2 weeks ago they are still looking into it Iam going to give them till the end of the week and if no response I will consider sending it back It also same to be geared in paper size to the Amercian paper sizes Ronnie Fyffe-McFadden
Summary: I am digitalising a photographic archive and a large number of the prints are larger that A4 size. Also some have been mounted on card and have been kept in damp conditions and have become up to a quarter of an inch from being flat. Having contacted Epson's support team and found the GT-20000 did all the things I wanted, e.g. the lid can be removed for scanning pictures on large presentation cards, etc.
Summary: I was always put of by the cost of this scanner and wasted a good deal of time searching for a cheaper A3 alternative. Every one of the cheaper variants appeared from the reviews to come with problems, most especially so for Mac users. Whilst the bundled page manager software bundled with the Epson software was incompatible with snow leopard I was able to get a very workable update. More money but well worth it. The Epson scan software is robust and easy to use.
