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.
