Excerpt: Epson still makes the best scanners. Had a GT-2500 for years but needed to replace it. The DS-6500 is the perfect replacement. Duplex ADF, document table, and Epson Scan software. Can do everything from technical manual scans, photos, even bound books. Solidly built, bulky, and a little slow...
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
Summary: This scanner works amazingly!!!! I've wasted so much time over the years with trying to get scanners to be recognized by the computer, and then finally getting it to work only to have to start over the next time you want to use it.
Summary: Does not work with my Mac. Took it out of the box and followed directions. Disk software has error message. Neither can I download the software from the Epson site. I am forced to contact Epson and hope they can get me the right software.
Summary: Love the batch feeder and flat bed. These are the features that make it worth spending the extra $ for this unit rather than the less expensive, upright scanners. High quality color scanning. Doesn't have built-in WiFi so I have it connected to my Apple Time Capsule.
Summary: I used this for a work project overseas connected to my Mac. It works wonderfully. It automatically detected orientation, color, text, etc. and knew how to sort them out. It's durable and fast. I highly recommend it!
Summary: If you're looking for something versatile for a small office setting then this scanner can fit the bill. However, if speed is a priority I would look elsewhere. Also, without the Network Interface Panel (Sold separately) it is relatively useless for more than one person.
Excerpt: We got this scanner to replace a 8+ year old three-in-one machine that was slow and had a finicky paper feeder. This scanner works extremely well - picture quality is fabulous, even on hand-written notes that were taken on yellow legal pads. It is very fast and also quiet.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Resolution, Works on Network
