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

Works great so far. It's a pretty simple machine - no fancy features - but I just wanted a basic scanner for business receipts, paperwork, etc, so it's a good fit.About me... small business owner, Business Professional
