    Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-50000 Document Scanner:

    Just received this scanner, so these are my first impressions...With so few affordable large-format scanners available, the Epson DS-50000 does a great job scanning both color and B&W 11 X 14" print originals.Fast and quiet, it's been a real gem so far.

    BIG fast scanner - reasonably priced

    from S.F. Bay Area

    Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-50000 Document Scanner:

    Goodbye CHEAP Chinese 11x17 scanner ... I am thrilled that you finally crashed and burned !I am a small Architect scanning sketches and designs for pdf files. 11x17 is a must, and the DS-50000 fits the bill quite nicely. Simple to set-up (self-launching for all intents and purposes), easy to use/logical software. Plenty of quality settings (I rarely use anything > 300dpi)Ordering, shipping, delivery from B+H is effortless, prompt, and trustworthy. And I will be sure to report my purchase to Jerry Brown for usurious taxation.

    Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-50000 Document Scanner:

    I was very excited to finally get an oversized scanner, but had a hard time setting this one up. I am using Mac OS X (v 10.8.2) and Adobe Photoshop CS 4. I downloaded the latest Epson drivers from their website but I could not get the EpsonScan software to work, and the scanner did not work through Photoshop's import command, or through Image Capture or Preview.

    After searching a lot of help tutorials online, I discovered the scanning program VueScan which I downloaded. It worked perfectly, with tons of built-in settings for this scanner (B&W, greyscale, color, DPI, etc. etc.) So now I scan things in using VueScan and then open the .TIF files in Photoshop.
