Epson WorkForce DS-30


The Epson WorkForce DS-30 portable scanner is limited to one-sided scans and a manual feed, but it's light, low-cost, and includes options to scan 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

Good value - if on sale


I was fortunate to purchase the Epson DS-30 portable document scanner at the Office Depot sale price of $99.00. At this price, I rate the scanner as a “very good” value.

Quality, good value at $99.00

Slow, software could be better., over-priced at $149.00

Outdated Software


I have had this scanner for a month. Sorry to say, I'm disappointed with this scanner. The scanner comes with an outdated version of Presto Biz Card scan 5.0. It is impossible to sync the business card file with an Android smartphone.

Easy to Set Up

Difficult to Use, outdated software

Great Purchase


I bought this portable scanner over six months ago. I have really put it to the test in using it hundreds of times per week at the office. Easy to set up and easy to use. There was an issue one time with lines on the scanned image but after calibrating...

Doesn't Jam, Good Value, Quality, Performance, Easy to Use, Easy to Set Up

Don't Buy


Took forever to load software. Did not like this product what so ever. It was NOT user friendly. Took it back for a refund and will purchase another scanner.
