Summary: A very versitile machine. Any documents, even larger sized, can be easily and readily scanned to a .mpeg file. From that image file, it can be Emailed or archived onto a flash memory card for storage. Great for photograph conversion to image files or document recording to image files.
Summary: I had a large scanning project involving newspaper-size documents - and I cringed at the thought of having to rotate them around and scan every side twice on a regular-size scanner. This scanner is a dream!
Summary: I used the Epson Expression Graphic Arts Scanner ($3,000) while in college and when I graduated I needed to get a large format scanner for making prints of artwork. I couldn't afford that model so I settled for this one. Boy...I wasn't settling.
Summary: I needed to scan a lot of multi page documents, most of which larger than 8.5 x 11. With this scanner I was able to scan a two page spread of the documents and was able to complete the task fairly quickly. Output is very high quality for both text and pictures.
Summary: I wrote the review that I've appended to this review about the 10000XL. I just got in a GT-20000 and it has the same exact problem. What's going on at Epson? I've used a 1640XL for years. It is having problems and I decided to upgrade to the 10000XL. I found 2 main problems with this scanner.
Great SCANNER, Great QUAILITY PICS, Terrible Speed !!

Summary: Hi. Im an Illustrator - Graphic Artist from South Florida. Recently at my work place, we got a GT20000 Epson Scanner but I can't really say things changed for better. Please keep in mind that at work, scanning high quality pics at high res(dpi) is a must.

Summary: Those of you in the market for a large format scanner know that they can be much more expensive than their letter-sized counterparts. The selection is also limited, with a couple of options around two hundred dollars and the really good ones costing more than two grand.
Summary: I purchased this machine to copy large pages from old photo albums. The machine is not cheap but compare to large format copies at Kinkos! It works flawlessly. Easy to set up. Instruction Manual on CD & very good.
