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.
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.
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.
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. I read the reviews here on Amazon & also checked out several other scanners, but chose this one because it could handle legal size paper. I was not disappointed!!
Summary: I bought this puppy when I discovered the TWAIN driver for my EPSON perfection scanner was not compatible with omnipage 16. After using the gt 2500 several hours a day for a month, we have experienced no problems so far. Seems to be fast and efficient and I would recommend it with omnipage 16 if you want to create a paperless office and turn documents into searchable PDF Files.
Exceptional genuine office-quality scanner for less than $600

Summary: I'm a long-time user of scanners going back to the earliest H-P ScanJet models, and this Epson GT 2500 is a terrific scanner for the money. I'm running it in an office environment scanning all types of items from heavily wrinkled and torn paper documents to photos to CD face images and it's handled everything I've thrown at it.
