Excerpt: The Epson Stylus Scan 2500 is an exceptional photo printer. It is a 3-in-1. It sports a scanner, photo printer, and copier. I have had this printer for 5 years so far and it has never ceased to function correctly. The photo printing is in sharp quality. You can also scan documents and even copy documents. It comes with an Epson progam where you can manage to send electronic documents by PC fax or e-mail, or just scan the document to a file or e-mail.
Summary: I've been using it for a year now. I made the right choice. I use it for nearly every piece of mail I receive and have been chunking away at literally 1000s of old family pictures. Pros: * It's a very solidly built scanner. It's durable. It would probably stop a bullet. * Has both flatbed and feeder (double-sided). * Feeder rarely jams, except on very thin paper. * Software that comes with it has a good feature set, image processing options, etc.
Excerpt: This is my first Epson scanner. I changed because my old scanner continually had multiple feed problems and the non-replaceable lamp was causing defects in the final scan. I spent more time babysitting than scanning. I use this scanner daily to create and append pdf's in my office. This machine just does what I tell it to do as long as I select the installed Epson software to manage the scan.
Summary: After careful research and reading reviews, this scanner was the best option for the features and cost. It has proven to be a great purchase and I would recommend this scanner to others. Installation was effortless. With Windows 7, we had to download the driver from the Epson website before installing the software and we have not had any problems at all. Nice, clean and straight scans. ADF has not jammed at all.
Summary: I have been using this scanner for about 4 years, have done little-no servicing on the unit and it's still going strong. I work in an office where the unit scans about 100 pages per day 5 days a week and still working great. Extremely impressed.
Excerpt: Have owned this scanner for 5-6 years in a small business environment. It sits on our network and is accessed by Windows, Mac, and Linux machines. No problem with drivers. It is used by the business folks for bulk document scanning, contracts, etc. The graphics department uses it regularly for images, photos, etc. There have been periods of very high usage, and other times when it sits around unused for a month.
Summary: Installing their software took a bit of effort since we had some HP softwares installed in our computers and apparently the HP programs were blocking some of the features in the Epson GT software. I had to call customer service and the Epson representative was on the phone with me for like 30 minutes, helping me step by step, until the scanner was working properly. Once we had it running, we have been very happy with it. The speed, the ease of use, the look, we love.
Summary: I ordered this scanner on 28 October and received it on 2 November. I was amazed to receive it so quickly with free super-saver shipping, and even more amazed at the ease of set-up. After test scanning several documents of various sizes, I was in love! It is fast, easy to use, and very adaptable to the demands of our office. I needed a good flatbed scanner with document feeding capabilities and, based on the reviews, this scanner was the best bargain within our budget.
Excerpt: So far, we have been a light user of the GT-2500, although we expect to scan thousands of pages that would be otherwise be difficult to relocate or preserve. The image quality of the GT-2500 is excellent, the automatic sheet feeder solid. Apparently, 600 dpi goes to the limit of any text that could be scanned (which we typically do as JPG or PDF), although 300 dpi is adequate for a high-quality scan, and on rare occasion some additional detail can be retrieved from a...
