So many other better options

  • Summary: Let me first say that I wholeheartedly believe in OWNING a scanner. I think every house should have a scanner to quickly deal with and then recycle / shred and recycle paper. There is just so much paperwork generated by our modern world. There's no reason to clutter a house up with it. Not only that, but having the scanned version - and backups online - means that even if the house has flood damage or fire damage, all those papers are still safe.

Excellent and worth the price.

John, Amazon

  • Summary: Being a paperless office, I use a scanner all the time. When my Dell scanner bit the dust, I purchased this one as a replacement. Installation could not have been easier. Once installed, the set up portion connected to my wireless network without issue. I use Nuance's Paperport and Power PDF for my paperless document handling and was concerned that there would be a time delay in making Nuance work with this scanner. That was not the case.

Very nice!

Catrina Thomas "Luvtlee", Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: I really like this scanner - it does the job outstandingly well. Fast, efficient and relatively small. I love how easy it was to set up, the software is a bit difficult to deal with at first though. Scanning to the iCloud is a really nice feature, and the fact that it scans both sides at once really impressed me. I'd definitely recommend this scanner to anyone.

WorkForce DS-560 vs. ScanSnap S1500M

R. Smith, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: I am so disappointed in that I wanted this to work as well as my Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M that I use for my Mac. The scanner can scan as fast as the ScanSnap, but the software processing is much slower. However, the feeder for the 560 is as good as the 1500, which is very important. Size is the same. Perhaps the next version of the Epson software can compare to the processing power of the software that comes with the ScanSnap.

Fabulous, once you get past the wifi setup...

M. R. Simmons "Techie", Amazon
2 August 2014
  • Summary: I am an owner of a lovely Fujitsu Scan Snap S1300i. I got this as a light use document scanner for my home office. For light scanning or for portable scanning, this really works well. When you get into heavy scanning, however, it shows its limitations. Scanning over seven pages at a time was always tricky. I loved and do love the ScanSnap, but I decided that I would try to get a high volume document scanner for heavy work.

FAST!

Leah Maines, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: This is an extremely fast scanner. It can scan credit cards, business, cards and odd shaped docs in addition to regular documents. You can put in a stack of different sizes and thicknesses and it scans them in under one minute. It was very easy to install and setup. It has an online instruction manual only. It would help if it had some sort of hard copy instructions too.

Better than before but I still Have some doubts

Santeria "Son of Tazz", Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: I must admit I was fully prepared to dislike this scanner. The general overview is that the software for most purposes has been greatly refined. The unit itself is still a very nice compact device. This has been the big positive for myself. Whilst my personal preference is for flatbeds, a large number of people (that I deal with) have scanning devices that vary from the incredibly tiny, up to about the size of this Epson.

Great USB Scanner with (terribly implemented) WiFi features

J. Nelson, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: Many home printers now include wifi capability to simplify the connection of multiple computers to a single printing resource. This has been a great development, and the technology has matured to the point where most modestly proficient computer users can set up their own wireless printing at home. Epson's attempt to implement WiFi features in this pass-through scanner are embarrassingly bad. Bad to the point that everyone involved in the effort should be fired.

Great hardware, mediocre software, awful setup

Indy Reviewer, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: The review for the DS-560 is much like its little brother, the Epson DS-510 : it's got great hardware, but the software seems designed to convince you to use another scanner. 3 stars. There's been a lot already written about the deficiencies in the setup of the DS-560, and those comments are generally accurate.
