... one pass without the machine doing any silly tricks like pulling the sheet back into read the other side
3 weeks ago
Summary: Purchased because I was looking for an office quality scanner that could scan double-sided (duplex) sheets in one pass without the machine doing any silly tricks like pulling the sheet back into read the other side. It does this well but it's slow for the price.
Summary: On time, no issues. A bit pricy compared to a slow scanner - but is worth the time saved. The software is a bit clumsy - doesn't recover well on my Mac after it goes to sleep or I turn off the scanner.
Summary: We had a tough deadline that required scanning of our entire family collection of photos over a weekend. At 600 DPI, JPG, no compression, we were doing about 400 an hour except for the larger prints (5 by 7). (Hooked up to a very fast ThinkPad.) The picture quality is very good.
Summary: I needed a document scanner for a work project that involved scanning thousands of pages of text. I narrowed the list down to the Epson GT-S50, the Epson GT-1500 or the Fujitsu ScanSnap 1500. All had good reviews from users as well as professional reviewers.
Summary: For the last year and a half, I've been using a Fujitsu S510 SnapScan page scanner, which is a natural competitor to the Epson GT-S50. So, when I was offered the chance to review the Epson, it seemed like a natural fit - somebody looking to purchase one is likely to also look at the other.
Summary: I've burned through 2 of these and am on my 3rd now. I cut up books then scan and convert them to PDF with this. I scan in my bills and manuals and magazines. With some magazines, the pages will stick. Its due to the humidity or static or thinness of the page, depending on situation.
