Personally I was dissapointed

Ken Massapequa, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: I wanted to like it, but was surprised it did not work at all. The green light did not come on which to me signaled trouble. The enclosure does not open which is a drawback for me. The size is handy and cord length is ample. I replaced the cord with another one I had in my closet; however, the green light still did not show. I returned it via United Parcel and the return process was EXCELLENT. Went back to the site to choose a Brother small document scanner.

  • Excerpt: Bought 5 for our office. Only 2 are still working and 1 of them only works sometimes. The other 3, that dont work, starting having problems right at the 1 yr mark. We have tried to contact Epson many times to just get these fixed but unable to speak with anyone that speaks english and now 2 years later are forced to buy new scanners. At first they seemed fine but I would not purchase again.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up

23 February 2014
  • Summary: I have only been at this for 16 hours, but as of right now, I am not impressed for what I said I needed it for. Of course it's not all Epson's fault, part blame to the sales person.

DS-30 software

beejay, Epson
16 December 2013
  • Summary: The DS-30 seems to be fine in regard to its hardware, but in comparison to the similar ScanSnap unit, the software is very deficient. No multiple pages, weak feedback, unclear options, totally missing documentation for the more recent OS X versions, etc.

Not yet happy.

Shelley Beckstrand, Amazon
13 December 2013
  • Summary: I have not yet succeeded in installing the DS-30, even with professional help. Its functions appear to be much less than i hoped for -- particularly I have not found a description of how to have the scanner recognize the insertion of document to scan without having to select the scan button for each sheet I'm trying to use it with Windows 8.1 -- and am beginning to doubt that is possible.

Poor Performance

NewUser, Epson
29 October 2013
  • Summary: I used it last night on five old (30+ years) baby pictures - it worked great. Today, I needed to use it on some recent photographs, but they would not slide through the scanner without skewing. Worthless.

doesn't work with Mac

Cathy, Epson

  • Summary: Very disappointed. Preview function does not work with a MAC. Only does basic scanning, most functions do not work with MAC. Even though they advertise that it is compatible.

Lack of instructions

Punkin, Epson
1 August 2013
  • Summary: I found that the instructions on its use are not detailed enough for a person with limited computer knowledge. I would really like to use this product effectively but it lacked the instruction I was hoping for. I can use it but need more details on appropriate use.

Not what I would expect from Epson Scanners

burkhame, Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this scanner for the obvious purpose of scanning documents to help reduce "Paper"! I own an Epson flat-bed scanner (Epson Perfection V500) at home and ABSOLUTELY loved it!! It's been a "Work-Horse"!! So, I figured this Epson Scanner would be carrying on the tradition of quality.... unfortunately not. The first 20-30 scans worked fantastically!! Then the problems started. :( First, it started mis-feeding but not on all documents...
