Summary: My organization purchased this scanner about five years ago and it is still going strong. We used it to scan thousands of pages of paperwork generated in the field (bent, torn, soiled, etc.) and it performed nearly flawlessly, rarely ever jamming. This was using the automatic document feeder. In addition, have used this to scan hundreds of historic photographs -- both for family history as well as for a photographic history book.
Summary: This scanner is solidly built and scans much faster than my combination printer/scanner/fax. Has wireless capability, which I haven't enabled yet, so I can't speak to how well it works wirelessly.
Summary: I read the reviews of this scanner, which I have been mostly happily using for a little over a year. One thing that helps me a lot is that I created an Excel spreadsheet for my filenaming conventions. There are many categories of things I scan, and with my handy-dandy little filename file, I can find EVERYTHING!! I teach part time at a university which generates lots of files and there are personal and business things to scan as well.
Summary: We needed a document scanner for our 7-person small business. Given the choice, I would never buy this again, nor any other Epson product. - By far the biggest problem is the scanning through the Automatic Document Feeder. The resulting PDF pages have a big, white border around the edges (corresponding to about 3-5mm), and the pages are often skewed. I had the purchased unit replaced, same problem with the second unit. Compared to a fax or a photocopy, that's fine.
Summary: Even though this scanner is touted as networkable, it does not work in any kind of business environment. First, it was EXTREMELY hard to set up. I had to call in my IT guy, because the instructions do not help at all, if things don't go exactly as they should. Secondly, there are two CDs that would I have had to install on EVERY SINGLE COMPUTER in my office, even though it says I only need to install EpsonScan.
Summary: The scanner worked nicely and set up as a network scanner was incredibly easy. It was not as fast as I hoped it would be and, unfortunately, stopped scanning after about 3 months. I have not had a chance to check it yet; might just be a slipped drive band (that pulls the scanning light) but I think that these things should be built to last a bit longer than 3 months.

Summary: I have owned the GT-2500 Plus for over a year, and I am very satisfied with it. Scan quality is as good or better than the last two HP flatbed scanners that I owned. I like the Ethernet connection. It seems much faster than a USB port, although the scanning rate depends more on the scanning mode (Color vs. Black and White) The scanner weighs a lot, so it is not real portable. It is solid!
Summary: I was forced to abandon my old HP Scanjet IICX after 28 years of faithful service. There were no drivers for the scanner in Windows Vista or Seven. In addition, the SCSI interface card was not supported by either of the two operating systems. . Forced to buy a replacement, my wife and I researched the internet for the ideal scanner. It must have the following features: . . . 1. It must be business grade. . . .
