Summary: I can't write about how the scanner works because I didn't even get that far. I was unable to save the file names of the PDF how I wanted. It required a prefix. I tried all sorts of methods to let me not do that. I scan documents by client or patient. Thus my file system is based on names. This type of software scanning system just doesn't work for me. I need my PDF files to be named specially for each piece. And I also scan multiple pages at a time for one PDF.
Summary: it works fine for pre printed paper or hand written receipt. I have a number of receipt from stores the scanner does not perform well . The information on the store receipt is dark but the scanner only pickup some of the word.
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.
Excerpt: I have had this scanner for a month. Sorry to say, I'm disappointed with this scanner. The scanner comes with an outdated version of Presto Biz Card scan 5.0. It is impossible to sync the business card file with an Android smartphone.
Excerpt: 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.
