Epson should be embarrassed

 

Epson should be embarrassed to rate this as they do. If they still want to sell it, they should either fix it so it DOES scan as fast as they say (continuously, not just short bursts), or downrate it appropriately, and drop the price to half. That...

Seems solidly built - it's heavy enough ; I have no qualms about the construction of it, it should last a good long time

Abysmal speed, especially on a Mac ; Epson rates it 40 ppm B&W-200 dpi. It actually did scan 40 ppm for a while when scanning B&W 200 dpi, but after about 100 sheets, it would scan 5 sheets, then pause for a count of 2, then another 5 & another pause....

Eats through documents like a barracuda

 

Over all I highly recommend this scanner, it's probably the best out on the market right now. Additionally, check out Epson's web page to see if they are offering additional mail-in rebates.

I have never seen a scanner go through documents as fast as this. When you press the scan button it starts scanning. There is no warm up time. I do not know if the ultrasonic double feed woks or not, I just know that I have not had one jam or scan more...

It only has one scan wheel, or it may be the ultrasonic scan double feed protection. The problem that this creates is if you have a "carbon copy" page this will tear it to shreds. There is a clear sleeve included with the scanner for such documents....

Good, but...

 

While I understand the desire to keep costs down by not including a users manual, I personally think that Epson missed the boat by not providing a users manual in .pdf form.

Epson GT-S80

 

Great from start to finish. Installed without a hitch and does a great job scanning in duplex or single side mode into Adobe Acrobat. I ran several 30-40 page docs through with no jams, good speed, and fine clarity. Another bonus is the size. With the...

Better Than Advertised. Love it!

 

I searched hi and low and reviewed other fast scanners. Just before purchasing another brand scanner, I was able to test drive the GT-80. This scanner is every bit of a Workforce as the name implies. Fast, accurate and dependable. Have scanned about 8...

Dont hesitate

 

This scanner is the best. I couldnt ask a scanner to do any more, without having to go into models that are thousands of dollars. The setup was easy and it works great. We use it daily (scanning both old and new files) and it has met and exceeded all...

Worked Great Out of the Box

 

Bought one today, hooked it up, installed software launched a 43 document scan and it scanned in in less than 90 seconds. Paper did not jam.

Deadline-dead

 

Ordered a workforce GT-S80. Arrived seemingly intact. Problems with freezing after installation. I live in the middle of nowhere. All epson could do is suggest I take it too a service center. My deadline has passed and I am returning my unit. Too bad,...

Best Sheet Fed Scanner

 

This is the second sheet fed scanner I've owned. It's excellent in text and color scans. It works great on documents with multi-colored texts and with images. Using the text enhanced mode increases the readability of grayscale scans.
