    Epson DS-40 reviews

    WorkForce DS-40 Wireless Portable Color Document Scanner is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 117.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Convenience Just love this portable scanner. It's convenient to hook up (and store when not in use) and scanning a document is so quick and easy. Couldn't stop "experimenting" when we first set it up. Scanned all kinds of documents - word docs, pics, half sheets. Received this as a gift from my husband to get me started scanning mountains of genealogy data. I dreaded the thought of having to use the scanner portion of my printer/copier/scanner to do this because of the time it takes for each scan. I kept putting it off. Now I can get busy getting things saved to the computer instead of keeping all those paper copies. What a terrific machine!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frustration! I still cannot connect to wifi. In order to networking DPS must be enabled on my router ATT Uverse 2Wire. There's no DPS setting on the router so then there's a string of directions to set It wants a router with dps which my 2wire ATT doesn't have. Having to add To DPS is beyond me. The directions are way too complicated. Even the USB setup directions were hard to follow. I've worked with computers since 1986 (remember the IBM PC) and am able to solve most problems. There are many different setups to be done. Some didn't run. Now USB is working but the Scan from Scanner button needs Document Capture installed and it doesn't even load.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compatibility Issues with Scanner and Windows 10 I recently bought this scanner and shorty thereafter upgraded to Windows 10. Ever since, my scanner gives me error messages the it "cannot communicate with scanner..." I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers (from the FAQ section on the Epson website) and I still get the same message.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I live off the grid and am always in a remote area selling off the grid properties in Northern Arizona. This scanner is compact, durable, and produces high quality scanned documents. I use Epson Scan as it was much easier to use. This product gets a 5 star rating from me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Awesome This scanner is Absolutely Awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It works great for me. I am a Notary Public. I like to scan all of the documents, Vehicle Title, etc. so that I can keep a record of them on my computer. Quite often clients come back to me requesting a copy of a document that they have lost. It also allowed me to throw my copy machine out. I simply scan a document and print it. If I do not need to keep it, I delete it from my computer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First portable scanner Took DS40 on the road first week I received. Scanned into IPhone and sent communications documents to office 300 miles away. Scanner worked flawlessly. Really makes document communication easy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Every product I have ever purchased from Epson has been a Superior Product. Extremely user friendly and Quick to run on my computer. Some printers are super slow and the Program seem to fight the printer. I have 2 printers and 2 scanner bars and recommend this product to anyone who needs to run their business with a quick work flow!
