Summary: Turns out that all the accompanying software with this scanner -- while advertised as a complete suite -- is written for the steam-powered PowerPC Macs, not for the ones made in the last 4 years. Using image capture, I can do what I need to, but the software that comes with the unit is worse than useless, since there are instructions sending you to the web for the wrong software. Tech support in the Phillipines helped me out, but I wish I hadn't bought this one.
Summary: I received the GT-S50 and started to set it up on a Windows 7 system. The disk process seems slow but completed successfully. I attempted to scan and received an error. I cleared the paper and restarted the scanner multiple times. After downloading the driver from the website I made a good scan. It has been working good since the driver download. I have set up multiple scanners and this has been one of the more difficult.
Summary: I bought this product 2 weeks ago and am still in the set-up process. The hardware seems very good, but the software is poorly documented, at least for the new user. I feel like I need my own IT department to interface the various software programs that come with the scanner. The whole interconnect fo hardware and software is very obtususe requiring much trail and error, and therefore time.
Summary: I work at a medical office and we have recently switched over to having electronic medical records, which left someone (me), to scan in every old paper chart into the computer. The scanner boasts it can "scan up to 1,200 pages a day." Unfortounately, this is not the case. I scan, on avaerage, 950 pages a day and this scanner can not keep up. I have had nothing but problems with it.
Summary: I bought this Workforce Pro GT-S50 it's pretty quick I will give it that. The program is where I am not quite on line as of yet. I am running Mountain Lion on my IMac. I went to the site downloaded the drivers, the navigator,event manager.
Summary: I thought I would be able to plug this into my router but according to Epson's tech support it can ONLY be connected to a computer. Luckily I have an old laptop sitting around that I've connected it too so that my husband and I can both use it without interrupting the other.
Inferior scanning results from mechanical design flaws

Summary: All scans made through this scanner result in warping at the top of the page to one side or both side where the images drops down to that side. As the page is feed, one side is allowed to warp away from the sanner putting a warp or slight arc on the final results. It looks terrible. Epson WorkForce 845 all-in-one printer is cheaper, and does a much better job, and comes with better software. I had bought the GT-S50 thinking it was superior product.
