    Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-30 Portable Scanner:

    I purchased this scanner for our office to process receipts for reimbursement. We used to have to tape the receipts to a sheet of paper and run it through the MFC, but now we can just feed the things through the scanner and it creates .pdf files automatically. The software is not fantastic, but it does get the job done with a minimum of fuss. It is not quick, but it is faster than doing it the old way. Compared to buying a Neat Receipts for quadruple the price, this was a greay purchase.

    doing great so far

    By Travis

    from Escondkdo, CA

    Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-30 Portable Scanner:

    I am the treasurer at small church. I bought this to jelp me go digital and reduce the amount of paper cluttering my office. It has been doing great for me so far and it really took a beating initially. It is small and compact which is great for the closet I call an office. Time will prove but liking it right now.

    Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-30 Portable Scanner:

    The scanner works great, However my computer does not have an optical drive nor have had to use one since I bought my currently computer three years ago. While the drivers are easy to down load off the sites the add-on software is not avaiable for download and is only available on CD>

    EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR

    Cons

    • Slow

    Best Uses

    • Legal Size Documents
    • Photos and Graphics

    Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-30 Portable Scanner:

    I use this scanner for loading old photos and documents (including legal size photocopies from deed books, etc) into my laptop for my genealogy. I also use it to scan and convert recipes to Word or PDF for easier searching. More current software than my Epson flatbed and all in one. It is small and lightweight. Quality of scans is superior. Especially easy to read hand script from photocopies from 200 year old deed books.Wish it were USB 3.0, but you can't have everything. Some of the small photos don't line up straight, but I think that is a user error issue that I must work on.I would recommend this mobile scanner to anyone who travels and needs to scan while on the road and to anyone who doesn't want the hassle of a large, flat bed scanner when the paper never sets right when the lid goes down.Perfect for use with my laptop.

      Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-30 Portable Scanner:

      I last owned a Visioneer Road Warrior portable scanner. It was not very good at locating the material to be scanned and the electric motor that pulled in the paper was always kinda wonky.

      This DS-30 scanner has been great so far. I just installed the drivers, plugged it in, and VOILA! My first scans were flawless and it did a nice job cropping out empty space, unlike the Road Warrior from before.

      If you are looking for either a portable scanner, or just a scanner that doesn't take up half of your desk, this is the one.

      Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-30 Portable Scanner:

      I use the product to scan papers, and it's great. It looks just like it did online, works well... I can't really complain. The only drawback is that you can't scan photos from magazines, but I figured you wouldn't be able to squeeze a magazine through the scanner when buying it. Not that that's a problem--I use it mainly for important contracts, papers, and receipts.

      It's really light, and the resolution is also as described--which is good enough for how I use it.

      Oh, another thing--I'm not complaining, as but with all portable scanners you need to put your papers in straight or else the picture comes out crooked.
