Epson WorkForce DS-30

 

The Epson WorkForce DS-30 Portable Scanner mostly stays with basics, but can send scans to the cloud.

Small. Light. Inexpensive. Gets power over USB cable. Can send files to Microsoft SharePoint, EverNote, and Google Docs.

Simplex (one-sided) scans only. Manual feed only.

Epson WorkForce DS-30

 

The WorkForce DS-30 marks the Epson's first foray into the still portable scanner market. As the new kid on the block, Epson has to tangle with some already established names, specifically Neat Receipts, Plustek and Xerox. So does the DS-30 have what...

Epson Workforce DS-30 Scanner

 

Epson's portable scanner is a nifty gadget for business users, and potentially artists on the go, but is it worth your money?

Easy to use, Portable, Offers several output formats

Bit fussy when grasping pages, Doesn’t offer double sided scanning

Output wise you get a decent selection, of formats, including jpeg, multi tiff, and pdf, and you can specify the compression level from high, medium and low. Alas, there is no PSD option. Of course the latter yields larger files than the former, with...

Great.

 

I wanted a small scanner that I could carry around, but didn't need it to be battery -powered, and I didn't want it to record to an SD card. I wanted to plug it into my computer, power it by USB, and have it just work, downloading scanned docs directly...

Very easy to use. Very good copies. Good document feed. "Just works" on my Mac. (An extra click is required to start up the driver.) No issues whatsoever. I thought the price was quite good, considering how good this device is.

Really, I've not encountered any.

I Like it

 

really handy for a road warrior like me. I really like to do as little paperwork at home as possible. this device makes me much more efficient on the road.

Small!, Powers off of USB (from a laptop) with no issues. Takes good quality pictures and doesn't take forever to do it. has a nice carry case as well. papers routinely go through without getting chewed or fold in any way. TWAIN! meaning that it will...

Price, I was hoping for a device that simply is a document feed scanner was a little cheaper. (but they are all this way) Software, as most devices these days the manufacturer software is hugely bloated and very slow. I recommend using something like...
