Epson WorkForce GT-1500 Color Document Scanner
We've had this in our offices since 2011 and use it daily to scan all personal and business paperwork. Average 100-300 pages per day, sometimes as many as 1000. Still runs like a charm.
With the exception of small receipts and photos, we use the ADF. Straight pages, and love that we can "add" pages so double sided is no issue.
Easy set up on all our desktops and laptops. (We've run Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1) Quick installation of software and we're up and running within 10 minutes.
Only CON is that we have never been able to get it to work with our wireless port system. Have to plug in the usb based on the computer as opposed to via our wireless usb hub.
Highly recommend. Would buy another one without question.

Epson GT-1500 WorkForce Color Doc. Scanner
So far, so good. The CD that came with the scanner would not work on my Windows 7 computer. But, I went to Epson.com/support and downloaded and installed just fine. I did a test by scanning documents to email; worked just fine.
Delivery of the scanner was fast, fast, fast; made
me happy happy happy!!! Very easy to set up
and use. A beginning person could do it easily
as long as they go to Epson.com/support to download and install software.

I've owned this scammer for several years and use it to scan my insurance renewals and reports. I scan them send to the correct file and email to the office, without using a printer. GREAT!!!

Epson WF GT-100 Scanner
Very easy to use, handles heavy-duty use smoothly and quickly. Takes up small corner of my desk next to my laser printer. Software is simple and easy. I do NOT do a lot of image manipulations -- just straight text document scanning and saving, so can't comment on the use of software to vary values of image, but it does make it easy to change resolution/size of document. Also, it is EXTREMELY QUIET, which was unexpected. Very much enjoy using it.

Great little scanner. For single or multiple page documents. Smooth operation and software enables almost anything you want to do with the scan.

scanner keeps losing comms with computer
I bought this scanner because it had gotten good reviews and I liked the features it had, so I was quite disappointed when I hooked it up to my system and found that each time I wanted to use it, I had to cycle power because otherwise the computer could no longer see it.
I am running Windows 8.1 so I don't know if it was a buggy driver or intermittent hardware, but after getting burned in the past attempting to deal with these types of problems directly with the manufacturer (diff manufacturer), I decided to just return it to the store I got it from (B&H Photo) which had no problem accepting my return. I would definitely buy from that store again.
I admit I could have just gotten a dud, but I was not about to go back and forth with it. Either it works out of the box, or I return it.

Quick and Easy
I have an Epson V550 photo scanner and wanted a scanner to do documents. I looked at the Epson Workforce GT 1500 and it was what I wanted in a document scanner. It came with PaperPort software that makes it easy to scan to my different categories - bills, medical, taxes, etc.. It has a document tray and will hold 40 pages. I would recommend this scanner for home or office use.

So far so good and what a bargain!
I got this scanner because the scans from my all-in-one were not getting it done. I can't believe how expensive scanners are and I didn't want to spend a bunch on one. I need a good scanner but not often enough to justify paying what a good computer costs. This was a great value from Epson as a refurbished unit. It scans beautifully, arrived quickly, and again, a great value. All of my scans so far and all I expect to do will be using the ADF. 300dpi scans to PDF are fast and clear, at 600dpi, they are perfect. I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this unit to anyone in the market.

Scanner worked great and now it will not scan a document. All I receive are a few lines and I reinstalled the software. I do not know what to do?
