    Epson DS-30 reviews

    WorkForce DS-30 Portable Scanner is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 242.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I purchased the portable scanner to scan over 300 typewritten pages from the 1970's into toe computer to make them editable in a digital format. I have a flatbed scanner and it could not do this. Originally I tried the Epson making PDF files - they did not work very well - hard to read and would not convert to a Word file. Then I tried scanning into the computer using the Epson Scan program and then used the Abbyy FineReader program and I was astounded - it made almost a perfect 100% conversion. A real astounding program that ;ets you select brightness, contrast and text emnhancement - Epson File Scan is great and the scanner is great!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am returning the scanner to the store. It scanned my document without a problem, the reason I am returning it is that it will not allow me to save the document under the title I want, rendering the scanned item useless to me. I attempted using 2 of the programs that came with it and after searching the useless users guide for information, I decided that this was not for me. I may have to pay more for the one I ultimately purchase, but I can guarantee that it will allow me to save my documents under the name I want, not what the manufacturer thinks I should use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good device I got the DS 30 as a gift. My home office is a nightmare of papers at any one time and my wife thought it would be a good idea for me to digitize papers, receipts, business cards, bill statements, and the like. So that everything would be easily accessible and out of site! She was right. This device rocks - it is compact and easy to transport. One negative - a software issue. One of the installed components, ABBYY fine reader, seemed to prevent Word 2013 from launching - I am using a PC running Windows 8. Once I uninstalled this component, the scanner software worked fine and Word has run normally.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson mobile scanner is my sanity saver Best invention since computers. The Epson mobile scanner is the size of a 3-hole punch and a fraction of the weight. I've been scanning and organizing 50+ years of accumulated photos and documents. Color and print come out clear and true to the original. Scanning is easy and fast. It's so much easier and enjoyable to view the results on screen than in albums, boxes or file cabinets. The only improvement I'd recommend is to make the continuous feed a bit less sensitive. I hate clutter and getting all this stuff onto a gizmo the size of my thumb (thumb drive) is a wonderful sanity saver. Everyone should get one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson WorkForce DS-30 Color Portable Scanner I received the Epson WorkForce DS-30 Color Portable Scanner as a Christmas present. Today is 12-27-14 and I successfully installed the Scanner's software and was pleasantly surprised as to how Easy it was to set up and begin using. My first document was scanned in just a few seconds and made a beautiful multi-colored file that was very easy to retrieve. I definitely will recommend this personal Epson scanner to Friends and Relatives. It definitely makes storage of important paperwork, pictures, bills, contracts, recipes, and legal documents as easy as 1-2-3.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Portable, convenient I purchased the DS-30 specifically to be able to carry it easily when travelling, to use it for scanning receipts for expense reports. I have found it not only very convenient for that limited use, but also a great tool to have with me so that I can capture documents at unexpected times. It is small and light enough to tuck into the side of my laptop case, so I have it with me all the time. The supplied software is very capable and simple to use. I have three printers which have flat scanners, and yet I often find that I use the DS-30 even when a flat scanner is available, simply because it is so convenient.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I expected 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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not match my needs as a company I can't write about how the scanner works because I didn't even get that far. I was unable to save the file names of the PDF how I wanted. It required a prefix. I tried all sorts of methods to let me not do that. I scan documents by client or patient. Thus my file system is based on names. This type of software scanning system just doesn't work for me. I need my PDF files to be named specially for each piece. And I also scan multiple pages at a time for one PDF. Probably a great scanner. Didn't work for me. Returning tomorrow.
