    I'm really pleased with the performance of this scanner. Speedy, paper feeder works very well (only one misfeed in a few thousand pages so far) and excellent quality. The documentation, however, is horrible -- no manual other than an HTML doc that is poorly organized.

    Fortunatly, I'm familiar with the Epson Scan software, so I was able to get this operational. Even so, using some of the advanced features was accomplished via trial and error. No excuse for that -- good hardware needs good documentation!

    It comes with some ancillary programs, the most useful being the ABBYY OCR program. It's not the full version, but it qualifies you for a reduced price upgrade to the full version. The one bundled with the scanner is OK for light-duty OCR work, but if you expect to do a lot of OCR runs, then an upgrade to the full version is well worth it.

    The other software is for business card reading (looked at it, and it seems OK, but I don't use the scanner much for that) and PaperPort (didn't install that at all due to bad past expereince with it). You can pick and choose which apps to load during the install.

    Comes with TWAIN drivers which is why I picked this over the Fujitsu (which is also a good model). Plus, this was a bit cheaper to boot.

    Highly recommend, but plan on setting aside some time if you want to learn how to use all the features.

    OK for TIFF, not OK for PDF

    I bought this to scan loose journal pages, family history material, old finance records, magazine articles, even old instructions manuals where I want to save the info but not the paper.Read complete review

    I bought this to scan loose journal pages, family history material, old finance records, magazine articles, even old instructions manuals where I want to save the info but not the paper.
    I turn everything into PDF files. I tested with a 54 page document. It took a little over 2 minutes to scan, then another 19 minutes to convert to PDF using FineReader. This is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. Scanning first to TIFF, then printing the TIFF as a PDF took about 6 minutes total time. This is about the same as scanning with my old, slower ScanSnap machine which scans directly to PDF. If you want TIFF files this scanner is great. If you want PDF create a TIFF first, then convert to PDF. DO NOT scan directly to PDF!
    Also, you are supposed to be able to create up to 10 user defined jobs accessible with the touch of a button on the scanner but I can't figure out how to set those up. They may not be necessary, however, since the automatic page size detection and automatic color detection seem to work really well. With my old scanner I used the user defined programs to define page size and scan everything in color, but this scanner will make those decisions for me.
    Another nice feature: after scanning one batch of pages it asks if you want to save the file or add more pages, so you can put multiple batches into one file. With my old ScanSnap I had to save multiple batches as multiple files, then use Adobe Acrobat to combine them into one file. This scanner will eliminate that later step.

        It is great, easy to set up and easy to use. Very fast (enough for me). I hope it doesn't disappoint me down the road since I am utilizing it for just 2 weeks.
        I am using Mac, and didn't need even the CD.

            Comments about Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 Scanner:

            This scanner works great at what it is supposed to do (scan without error and scan duplex automatically). I would not take a star away for the one thing I wish it did. When scanning multiple pages, I wish it did the OCR processing in the background. As it is, you can't start another scan until the processing is completed.

            This hasn't bothered me since I know how it works so I put in all the documents I want scanned and they scan quickly - and it takes as long as it takes to process but I don't have to wait between documents.

            This is an excellent product for eliminating storage of reams of documents. Just make sure you use adequate backups.

            I do not use the software supplied with the scanner. FileCenter has been a great product for organizing documents. I've read too many negative comments about PaperPort.

            This is good printer. I am using linux based OS, and EPSON provide a driver for linux. Driver and program for Linux OS is not as rich as Windows version, but what are needed in there. Instruction was pretty easy to follow, and works great! Everytime I use 20+ college ruled papers with 3 holes for scanning, but no jamming. I had to adjust dip to 150 in order to minimize the size of file, but even with 150 dpi, it is clear! I like the device.

            I don't like the software that it comes with but I'm sure it will do for now.
            Extremely fast scanner! And it loads so nicely.

In addition, its scan speed has far exceeded my expectations. We were using a HP wireless scanner, and the Epson is, by far, a superior product. Highly recommend.

                      I've owned the GT-S50 for a year now and am digitizing all my personal records (bills, medical, financial, etc) as well as my personal library. I upgraded the included ABBYY software to FineReader Pro for OCR scanning and also purchased Acrobat Pro9. The scans are accurate and good quality, including color. The jams and double feeds I've had have almost always been attributed to defects in the paper being scanned, something that can happen with any comparable make/model. I definitely recommend this model - the 75 sheet feed capacity is factual. I've scanned over 80 pages at a time. Excellent sheet scanner.

                            Have Windows 7. Real easy to install.
                            I got this scanner to hopefully do several different things. Scan checks for deposit. What a difference from the flatbed scanner. I have an epson flatbed so it was easy for me to figure out how to work it with no problem. The only thing I found was that I had to sometimes up the resolution because some checks don't come out that great. I am not a reader so having a manual book..no. I'll figure it out.
                            The other things I will need the scanner for, I have not really gotten into. This is the reason at this point I cannot give it 5 stars.

                                      The scanner works pretty good and it delivers fast scanning for both sides. It is being used to scan medical records that include carbon copies.

                                            I am a realtor and need easy, quick scanning ability and this delivers perfectly. Its quick and goes right to a file that i set up for all scanned docs. I am very happy with this product.
                                            i did find that i need to go to 400 for the best clairty of the docs. but thats not a problem.

                                            I'm purposely not going into a lot of detail; unit arrived packaged well in good time. Set up was not as easy in my case as some have noted, I'm not sure anyone can be scanning "in minutes". Sotware takes some time to load and there is a learning curve. Be prepared to play with it and/or do some research.

                                            That said, the actual performance of the scanner is good, I've yet to have an actual misfeeds and speed is nice. Only real issue I have is with input and output trays; the input tray is so veritcal if your documents have any curl or folds (in the wrong direction) they tend to fall forward which can cause a problem if you don't catch it and manage it. Similar issue with output, paper with curl or folds tend to catch on each other and can make a mess.

                                              I am really impressed with the Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 scanner I purchased. I bought it because its auto document feeder will handle up to 75 pages, which it does. To my delight it scans very quickly and produces sharp images. It was very easy to set up and I have had absolutely no problems with anything I've scanned. I was also impressed with how sturdy everything on it feels and it's small footprint. I would definitely recommend it.

                                                Comments about Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 Scanner:

                                                Scans 75 sheets at a time in tray versus the competition's 50 sheets. Priced a lot less. Great utility software for customizing scan types and default file locations. Construction quality nice and easy to remove jams from wrinkled or screwed up paper. Scan thick and thin business cards AND comes with a sheet carrier for odd sized documents. A win-win product. Would buy again.
