    Epson DS-6500 reviews

    WorkForce DS-6500 Document Scanner is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson works with iMac I scan a lot of documents for use in my business for records but particuarly for emailing. I had a more expensive hp Scanjet 8390 that worked just ok with my pc but when I switched to the iMac and downloaded the firmware for the Mac operating system, i have had nothing but problems. After struggling for more than a year, I gave up and called Apple to see what machine they recommended. They had a less expensive Epson scanner available. I found the WorkForce DS-6500 on B& H and have not had a minutes trouble with it. It works perfectly!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great We got this scanner to replace a 8+ year old three-in-one machine that was slow and had a finicky paper feeder. This scanner works extremely well - picture quality is fabulous, even on hand-written notes that were taken on yellow legal pads. It is very fast and also quiet. We are using the scanner with the Network Scan Module so that all users in our office can scan and file documents to any location on our network. The interface for the Network Module is fairly intuitive and most users were able to start using it right away without any instruction. The only thing I don't like about the interface is that you can't dynamically name a scanned image file - you have to set rules for a naming convention that is used for all files (i.e., myfile_001.pdf). Once you've save the file to the default location, you can rename it to something that makes sense and move it to the desired network location.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WorkForce DS-6500 is an old school workhorse Epson still makes the best scanners. Had a GT-2500 for years but needed to replace it. The DS-6500 is the perfect replacement. Duplex ADF, document table, and Epson Scan software. Can do everything from technical manual scans, photos, even bound books. Solidly built, bulky, and a little slow... but always reliable!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Requires an Epson printer to make direct copies Beware! The copy to printer function in Document Capture Pro only works with an Epson Printer. If you do not have an Epson printer you will not be able to print copies of a document using Document Capture Pro without saving it to your computer first. The separate Epson Scan application has no connection to print directly at all. To print a copy of a document it must first be saved to the computer then printed and then if you don't want to keep an electronic copy on your computer it must be deleted from its file then deleted again from the recycle bin. 23 Clicks are necessary to scan and print a file when you don't want to keep the electronic copy. Epson-Scan may work with a few less clicks but not significantly so. You still have to save the file to your computer somewhere. Open it into an application in order to print it and then close the application and delete the unwanted files. UGH!!! If you have an Epson printer this problem is not supposed to exist. There is a print button in two places in the Document Pro window which will, I am told go directly to an Epson printer when you have one. When you don't have an Epson Printer you get a message saying The printer Driver is not available. Quit the application, then reinstall the printer driver. There is however nowhere to reinstall the driver and none other than an Epson Driver and printer will ever be recognized. I have verified this with two separate second echelon techs from Epson. The other save to computer functions connected with the scanner seem to be working well. If you have an Epson printer, all is well. If you don't want to make unsaved copies, all is well. But! If you want to make unsaved copies and you don't have an Epson printer, do you really want an Epson Scanner with Document Capture Pro????? I do not advocate buying an Epson printer to solve this problem. I am questioning the appropriateness of buying an Epson Scanner. I think Epson should know better. If you don't believe that 23 clicks are necessary, here are the steps.. Click 1: Open Document Capture Pro. Click 2: Click folder icon in the destination choices. Click 3: Choose Desktop unless you want to save the file. It will be easiest to find and delete. : Click 4: Click on the scanner icon. This opens the Main Settings dialogue box listing choices and parameters of the scan. Click 5: When you have set your parameters for the scan, click the highlighted scan button in right bottom corner. The document is scanned. An Image of the scan appears in the main window and also in the thumbnails window. Click 6: Click File to open its menu. Click 7: Mouse over send to open the send menu and click Folder. The Batch File dialogu box opens. Click 8: Choose file type, name and any other options listed. PDF seems to be best for quick (?) copy, and click OK. A PDF icon for the file saved appears on your desktop in the first open space available. Click 9: Folder Progress box appears with advancing green line showing progress. When the space for the green line is filled click Close. Click 10: Double click the new PDF file to open it in Acrobat Reader. Click 11: Click File in Acrobat Reader to open its menu. Click 12: Opens Acrobat Reader print Dialogue Box. Click 13: Choose the parameters of an Acrobat Reader document that you want and the properties of your printer that are relevant to your copy. Click print, and it should print. We now have the desired copy but unless we want the electronic copy we are not done. Click 14: Click red X in top right corner of Acrobat Reader (if you have Win 7) or whatever works in 8 or 10, and close Acrobat Reader. Click 15: Click X in top right corner to close Document Capture Pro. Click 16: Mouse over and right-click the PDF icon on your desktop for the document just printed to open it's right click menu. Click 17: Select Delete and Click it. A dialogue box opens Are you sure you want to move this fine to the Recycle Bin? No you don't want to move it to the recycle bin. You want rid of it NOW but that isn't a choice. Click 18: Click yes. The Icon disappears but we are not done. The file is in the recycle bin and it will become clogged if we don't always remove the unwanted copies we just put in there. Click 19: Double click the recycle bin to open it. Click 20: Mouse over and right-click your file icon Click 21: Click Delete which opens a dialogue box saying Are you sure you want to permanently delete this file? Click 22: Click yes and the file disappears. Click23: Click X in top right corner (Win 7) and close the recycle bin. WHEW!!!
