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

Epson DS-30 (B11B206201)


Bought this scanner to have on the road as I travel a lot for business. Great for expense receipts, business cards and fits in my computer case very well. The price is great, and the item is very light weight. USB powered no need for batteries or power...

I Like it

Small!, Powers off of USB (from a laptop) with no issues. Takes good quality pictures and doesn't take forever to do it. has a nice carry case as well. papers routinely go through without getting chewed or fold in any way. TWAIN! meaning that it will...

Price, I was hoping for a device that simply is a document feed scanner was a little cheaper. (but they are all this way) Software, as most devices these days the manufacturer software is hugely bloated and very slow. I recommend using something like...

Scan quality OK. App sucks.


The quality of the scans is fine but the software leaves a lot to be desired. Tried installing both from the CD and from the latest version on the Epson website. I'm running OS/X El Capitan. The Epson Scan Settings app Test function is hit and miss and...
