Epson WorkForce DS-560 Wireless Color Document Scanner

 

The Epson WorkForce DS-560 Wireless Color Document Scanner can scan directly to a mobile device, as well as connect to an access point by Wi-Fi to work as a network scanner.

Automatic document feeder. Duplex (two-sided) scanning. Wi-Fi. Scans to mobile devices, both directly and through an access point.

Doesn't do a good job recognizing text on business cards.

If you don't need to connect by Wi-Fi—either to a network or to mobile devices—consider the Canon DR-C225 or the Epson WorkForce DS-510, which is essentially the same scanner as the Epson WorkForce DS-560 Wireless Color Document Scanner, but without...

Epson Workforce DS-560 review

 

A deceptively small scanner with massive workflow ambitions

Compact ; Fast scanning ; Scans folded sheets

Flimsy output tray ; Can’t handle books

A tiny powerhouse of document workflow technology, the DS-560 delivers wholesale scanning for those businesses ready to embrace it.

No Tech Support

 

Document Scanner works well when used with a USB connection

When trying to use the scanner wirelessly I was unable to connect with my Cisco Linksys Router. The default address for the router is 192.168.10.1. The third segment of the I.P. Address is out of the scanner range. I called Tech Support and spoke with...

" The set up was fast and easy. The scans are very clear and we love the wireless feature. We can scan to any of the computers in the office and do not have to move the scanner. I would recommend this scanner for any office. "

Great machine!

 

" I am extremely pleased with this scanner. Small, fits on that tiny corner of my desk, but mighty, it works flawlessly with all of my other office applications. I think it is a great value for the cost to purchase, and significantly reduces the...

Very Good Scanner

 

" This scanner is a very good one. It scans well even if the doc is 15-20 pages or more. Has all the features you need for a doc scanner. Was easy to set up on my phone. Needed help from Epson tech to set up on my wireless network but he did a great...

Good so far .....

 

" Have been using it pretty heavily for a few days. Its fast, and relatively jam free. Had some jam issues with thinner than normal paper. Only one double feed so far, and it was a document in less than perfect condition due to wrinkles. The write-up...
