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.

Great Scanner

 

Epson should send out a better software package so that users can enjoy this great scanner.

I love this scanner, it's fast and so far has not failed. I have a favorite magazine but I almost never read it because I prefer reading on my iPad. Now with this scanner I can scan in the magazine and transfer a PDF to my iPad and enjoy reading it...

The drivers for the scanner are fine but the software is lame, I tried the paperport software and was not impressed a bit. I have Adobe Acrobat Pro v9.0 that I have been using and it works great with this scanner.
