Very Pleased

Barry G., Newegg
10 February 2012
  • Summary: I am very pleased with this scanner. My old HP required an unacceptably long warm up time before the first scan, the GT2500 has a very short warm up time. The document feeder is much better behaved with less paper travel issues than the HP and quieter/faster.
  • Pros: The Pros that follow are in comparison to a similar HP SJ7450C scanner that the GT-2500 replaced: -Fast - not blinding but satisfyingly fast with respect to time per page. -Quiet - Document scanner sounds like a quiet precision machine and is not annoying to those in the area like the HP scanner ...
  • Cons: -When using the document feeder, the Epson Scan software always scans as if the original is 11 X 14. This has a number of drawbacks. Any original less than 11 X 14 (e.g. letter size) appears on a 11 X 14 background so it must me manually (time wasting effort) cropped to view or print without havi...

This scanner rocks

beancounter, Amazon
21 June 2010
  • Summary: We needed a new scanner here at work because our HP scanner was absolutely ancient and VERY slow. I was looking for a new scanner that had auto document feed, easy to use & could accept legal size paper. We just scan paper documents and it gets moderate daily use from several office staff.

Very slick

George W., Newegg
4 April 2010
  • Summary: I love NewEgg for most items, except when they ship large items - they just slap a label on the original carton and say, "hope it makes it there." Because of this history I have had with them I bought this elsewhere at the place that's closed on Friday nights and Saturdays - now they know how to...
  • Pros: Outstanding scanner with a flawless feed mechanism. Scans are fast and high quality using Epson Scan or Adobe Acrobat Standard or Pro. This machine is solidly built and worth every penny.
  • Cons: The instructions for software installation are non-existent. Here's how to do it properly if you have Vista or Windows 7 - do not plug in the USB cable yet - go to Epson's site and download the software. Once it is complete, with the scanner turned off, plug in the USB cable and then turn on the ...

Epson GT-2500

Anonymous, Newegg
15 July 2009
  • Summary: Would be nice if flat bed was large enough to scan 8.5X14. I would definitely recommend this product.
  • Pros: Excellent product. Color scans are fast and produce great results. BW 300 dpi very fast using ADF and flatbed. Far exceeds my expectations.
  • Cons: None.

Working like a champ!

Elaine W., Newegg
11 September 2008
  • Summary: I really only use this as a high speed black and white scanner. So I'm not commenting on its color abilities. I needed something that I can slap a stack of docs into and get a pdf created QUICKLY! This scanner does what I ask of it.
  • Pros: Nice software, can set it up for slap and scan. Slap the docs down, get 'em scanned pronto!
  • Cons: Nothing yet for what I use this machine for.

Very pleased

James W., Newegg
25 April 2008
  • Summary: Would be nice if the software had basic cropping and editing tools to avoid having to use Photoshop altogether.
  • Pros: Easy setup. Easy use. Duplex doc feeder works great. Epson scanner software is excellent as usual. Much better, by far, than what HP provides.
  • Cons: None were expected. None were experienced.

Awesome scanner

George A., Newegg
14 February 2008
  • Summary: Great scanner.
  • Pros: Awesome scanner. VERY fast at low dpi grayscale, pretty darn fast at higher color dpi. The ADF hasn't jammed once in the 4 months I've owned it, and I've even scanned a lot of Double Sided documents (the GT-2500 makes easy work of that). Also, the Software that comes with it is not clunky at all ...
  • Cons: If you're a developer, you'll probably want to stay away. WIA is not fully implemented in Epson's driver, as WIA property WIA_DPS_DOCUMENT_HANDLING_STATUS (and no telling what else) is just MISSING. Direct quote: "Currently, there are no way to check the feeder status without scanning."

Fast and reliable

Anonymous, Newegg
25 May 2007
  • Summary: We have this setup through an Axis 70U document server. The two work very well together and has made an excellent network document imaging station for our office!
  • Pros: Very fast scanner with excellent image quality and reliability. Seems very well built. Very well designed ADF that is built into and is part of the main unit hood, not some cheap clip on add-on unit.
  • Cons: None so far! It's been working great!

I love this scanner (so far)

Devin S., Newegg
9 November 2006
  • Summary: I have only owned this scanner for a few days, though so far I am VERY happy with it - it seems to be exactly what I was looking for (reliable fast compact scanner for scanning volumes of B&W or greyscale docs).
  • Pros: Easy to use, compact (compared to equivalent HP scanner for example) and FAST. A fast scanner is important to me (why don't scanner manufacturers report speed in a universal way the way printer manufacturers do?) and this one esceeded expectations. At 400dpi it takes a couple of seconds to scan a...
  • Cons: At first the ADF jammed each time, and I had to make a call to Epson tech support. They were very good, however, and the nice lady talked me through putting one little flap of plastic behind another on the underside of the ADF - it's kindof complicated to explain. Apparently is a common problem, ...

Great scanner

A. Pavlou, Amazon
26 October 2006
  • Summary: Whilst this is not inexpensive I have actually found it very useful and value for money. It has a large flatbed which is very useful for larger documents as well as smaller receipts and pictures. Also the feed works really well. We are keeping less and less papers.
