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

The scanner worked fine when I had a windows computer, but now that I switched to a Mac, OS X 10.10.5, I can't get it to work. I downloaded the drivers from the site and restarted my computer, but still no luck. I gave it as high as a 2 because it did...

Pretty good for a small portable scanner


I got this scanner about a year ago, as I frequently travel on business and end up working from a hotel room. If has worked pretty well during this time, and is certainly easy to pack in a carryon. I like the multiple output formats, and the ability to...

I'm thinking of getting other scanners so that I can scan all documents of my family tree which would be 272 pages long.

Epson WorkForce DS-30 Scanner


We needed to purchase a scanner so that my husband could scan his delivery receipts prior to e-mailing to his boss for account billing. We researched our options and selected this scanner. The install was easy and we've had no issues using the scanner.

Small device with a powerful punch!


I have used this extensively to upload documents and e-mail/forward them or save them to my computer. It really reduces the clutter, allowing me to go paperless to save important documents.

Infuriating Product


The DS-30 has done little but infuriate me since I bought it. It is a feed scanner, but when you try to feed the next page, the machine declares a paper jam. Then when you go slower with the next page, it declares there is no page to scan. Only after...

Good portable scanner


The software set-up is not as seamless as I would expect in the 21st century. Once the software was installed, very easy to use and I'm very happy with it. I use it for work and when I travel, love the small footprint and no complaints. I would...

Save a step


I have stopped having to go to the copier/scanner and wait my turn. The DS-30 is a simple time saver and very easy to use. My employer tried to pay for mine, but I also use it at home so I told her to buy them for the office if she liked them. Maybe...
