Epson WorkForce GT-1500

 

The Epson WorkForce GT-1500 ($349.99 direct) represents a new direction for Epson. As the name implies, this scanner is office-centric rather than photocentric, and it's aimed at small offices rather than any of Epson's usual target markets: home...

Low price for a flatbed document scanner. Scans directly to searchable PDF files

Automatic document feeder (ADF) scans one side of the page only. Manual duplex feature is hidden and somewhat cumbersome. Slow

The Epson WorkForce GT-1500 is a bit slow, but it's affordable enough to make it an attractive choice if your small office needs a document scanner that includes a flatbed.

Review: Epson WorkForce GT-1500 document scanner

 

Easy to use and simple in its focus, the GT-1500 does an adequate job of photo- and document-scanning.

The GT-1500 can quickly scan multiple sheets at a time thanks to an automatic document feeder (ADF) capable of holding as many as 40 sheets, as large as 8.5 by 14 inches. Although you’re limited to a maximum scanning resolution of 600 dpi when using...

EPSON B11B190011

 

Fast, easy way to scan paper. Takes up very little space on the desk compared with my previous flatbed scanner and is much faster to use

Can only be used with the computer that it is connected to, it cant be set up to be used as a network device.

Bad Deal

 

Cheap

Cheaply made. After about 4 months of light use, the scanner started spontaneously disconnecting from the computer. The error codes said it was a paper jam, but sometimes the paper has not even started feeding through when the error occurs. A little...
