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

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...

no cons so far

Great.

 

I wanted a small scanner that I could carry around, but didn't need it to be battery -powered, and I didn't want it to record to an SD card. I wanted to plug it into my computer, power it by USB, and have it just work, downloading scanned docs directly...

Very easy to use. Very good copies. Good document feed. "Just works" on my Mac. (An extra click is required to start up the driver.) No issues whatsoever. I thought the price was quite good, considering how good this device is.

Really, I've not encountered any.

I Like it

 

really handy for a road warrior like me. I really like to do as little paperwork at home as possible. this device makes me much more efficient on the road.

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...

Consumer review by: Sandi (walmart.com)

Does the trick!

 

Needed a scanner asap that would work at home and travel. This does the jobs nicely. Of course, it is a bit slow and can only do one page at a time, but that's OK for me. Easy to install software, nice "pouch" to carry/protect and a good price compared...
