Excerpt: I bought this to replace a wireless all-in-one printer-fax-scanner. That unit took many minutes to warm up and get itself together before it even thought of scanning. This is a great unit as it works instantly.
Summary: Love this scanner. I use it to copy old family photos, scan and edit existing photos. You can put three or four pictures on the glass and it will scan and separate them. Handy for quick work. Easy to use, program loads and operates easily. Small enough to transport in the original box, so I take it with me when I visit family. I can scan old photos without having to take them anywhere. Not my first epson scanner, have an older, bulky one I still use.
Summary: I like the door opening to the side as it makes for easy placement of books. The software has the ability to filter out my highlights in the book which makes me very happy. It scans fast, it's easy to add multiple pages, PDF's with Optical Character Recognition works very nicely. Great rotation feature for books or documents that work in either landscape or portrait.
Summary: I purchased this scanner based on the reviews here, and I was not disappointed at all. I needed a scanner that the lid would open flat (180+ degrees) so that I could scan old photo albums that the pictures cannot be removed from. It is very light weight & small, so it does not take up much space. You cannot beat it for ease of use. I have not yet tried any of the other settings besides the auto scan, which is all that I need at this time.
