Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50

 

Epson has a long history of selling scanners, but they've been primarily photocentric flatbed scanners. The Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 ($499.99 direct) is different—neither photocentric nor flatbed. It's small enough to fit on a desktop to use as a...

Fast scans. Duplex scanning (both sides at once). ISIS and Twain drivers let it work with virtually any scan program

Scan utility is a little hard to learn how to customize. Business-card scanning is below par

The Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 scanner is impressive enough to earn high marks despite software that's best described as capable but a little hard to get started with.

Review: Epson Workforce Pro GT-S50 document scanner

 

With respectable scan times, decent scan speeds, and the best looking color scans we've seen from a document scanner, the Workforce Pro GT S50 is one of the better document scanners available.

The accompanying EpsonScan software is easy to use and should be familiar to anyone who’s used a flatbed Epson scanner in the past. Its not flashy, but its functional, and I’ll take that any day

Epson Workforce Pro GT-S50 review

 

The accompanying EpsonScan software is easy to use and should be familiar to anyone who's used a flatbed Epson scanner in the past. Its not flashy, but its functional, and we'll take that any day.

With respectable scan times, flawless (if dated looking) software, decent scan speeds, and the best looking colour scans we’ve seen from a document scanner, the Epson Workforce Pro GT-S50 is one of the better document scanners available.

Epson GT-S50 review

 

To scan multiple pages at once, a sheet-fed scanner may be a good option. We view Epson's GT-S50.

Duplex scanning; easy to use software

Sluggish scan times when using Adobe Acrobat

With respectable scan times, flawless software, and the best-looking colour scans we’ve seen from a document scanner, the Epson GT-S50 is one of the better document scanners currently available.

software...

 

Perhaps we got spoiled with the Canon M-160 scanners. They are fast and come with a very simple interface that the drones aren't confused by. Too bad they are a grand each... Played with Paperport, FineReader, VueScan and Scanitto; the concept that...

Decently made hardware. Feels fairly solid accept for the flimsy paper catch tray

The epson software is junk. The interface is terrible and the codecs used for pdf generation produce huge file sizes relative to other programs (3 pages greyscale at 300dpi comes to 1.8Mb). The interface for naming files before scanning is buried deep...

This scanner just stops working

 

I owned this for 9 days, scanned 5 pages and it broke!!! I called Epson and after a long conversation with the rep he stated that they knew about this problem but they did not recall the item and they are continuing to sell the scanner. Before you...

When it worked (only 5 scans) it worked well

When INITILAZING is flashing on the scanner, you are dead in the water, and it just happens for no reason

Disappointed

 

This is a compact fast scanner, BUT. And it is a huge but. The scanner glass keeps getting dirty and needs to be cleaned frequently, if you are using this scanner more than a few times a day.

So far so good

Incredible Product

 

This is the most amazing scanner I have ever used. It's fast and super-quiet. I've used HP scanners before, and they are slow and noisy. This Epson scanner scans both sides of the page at once, and has good text-sharpening and de-skewing software built...

Excellent scanner - A real workhorse

 

I am using this scanner with a computer using OS 10.4.11. I have scanned 1000s of pages in color and B&W. I have scanned my collections of magazines as well as the books I use for work. I have turned them into pdfs. B&W is rarely tricky and 99% of the...
