Epson - GT-1500


Flatbed scanner mechanisms are best known as the top parts of all-in-one machines, but they do have lives of their own, too. Epson's GT-1500 is a business scanner, as opposed to one intended for the home ...

The GT-1500 is a versatile business scanner for the home office or small business. The first outing for Epson's LED light source proves effective and the scanning quality is good. It's easy to use and the scan-to-PDF facility for multi-page documents...

Epson GT-1500


There are two types of flatbed scanner: those aimed at graphics professionals, who need to scan colour photographs at high resolutions; and those intended for the business market, where documents need to be scanned for optical character recognition...

The GT-1500 is a versatile scanner that can handle photos at respectable resolutions, documents at OCR resolutions and page images at archival resolutions. It's easy to use and the new LED illumination acquits itself well, giving clean, lively scans

Does not work


When it works, it's pretty simple to use

I have purchased two of these in the past few months, neither one works when attempting to install them. They don't even work on a Mac when almost everything just works on Mac when you plug it in. I am very disappointed in this product. Every time you...

Great update to EPSON-2400 Perfection


As a refurb unit, I purchased an additional year of service. So far, have used the feeder to convert 35 years of technical documents (so far over 10,000 pages) using the feeder. Works great with Adobe 9.5 Pro.

Have not used it in "image" mode. Working with it in document mode with Adobe 9.5, the color could be a bit more vibrant. Totally acceptable for my purposes.

Led lamp (the one that is supposed to scan the image) doesn't come on. It fails to scan. Supposedly compatible with Linux, but required a download of proprietary firmware or a download of proprietary (and not free as in beer) scanning software --...

Happy Camper


Great price for a scanner with automatic feeder. It can scan to searchable PDF docs. Scan speed is good for 300 DPI. It is slow at higher resolutions. Noise is normal and tolerable for a compact,low price scanner. My HP 4850 was louder and it did not...

Good so far


I do not do a lot of scanning but have used this several times to scan documents to email. Scanner has worked flawlessly so far. And price is very good compared to other sheet fed scanners.

Unfortunate experience with refurbished


I am thankful I purchased the Squaretrade warranty because I have to return this scanner. From the outset it was a bad experience because the driver disk was too damaged to read. I downloaded a driver but it turns out there was more software on the...

Product Specifications

The EPSON GT-15000 delivers faster scanning speeds and greater efficiency to business and educational users. It can be networked or used as a standalone scanner, and is an excellent solution for space-efficient paperless archiving. Brochures, proposals, quotations and faxed letters, as well as textbooks, maps, projects and photos can be scanned in vivid, sharp color at the touch of a button and shared across a network. This scanner combines quality, simplicity and speed, with an output resolution up to 9600dpi for A3 documents and speeds of up to 10ppm in color and 16ppm in mono. It can scan originals up to full size A3/double A4 and differentiate between multiple items, so documents and photos can be captured at the same time. The latest EPSON Scan driver software includes Home, Office and Professional modes and EPSON Scan can even be used as a standalone scanning application, or TWAIN driver for use with applications such as Adobe Photoshop. USB 2.0 Hi-Speed and narrow SCSI are included as standard (IEEE 1394 optional) while the optional Network Image Express Card can be added to bring high speed scanning to multiple users, just like a laser printer.
