Rated 5 out of 5 by VerySmall1ManOffice Really FAST
I have wasted hours and hours scanning on my older Epson Photo Scanner, like the V500 [which I also bought because my old one finally failed after 4 years and thousands of photos and full page saves]. I really like the speed and adjustability of the GT-S50 I bought about a month ago - even checking the scans with the Windows viewer [cool, no complaints]. I just scanned random 1 and 2 sided 8.5x11 paperwork at 261 documents in 31 minutes - only 4 bled-through ink-jet copies [older copies, laser-print now] made a copy of the 2nd side - in error [auto skip blank sides setting]. Beautiful job. Takes longer to sort and date-stamp and certainly file my copies. I'm trying to have a paperless office, but I spent too many years procrastinating. Wish I had bought a GT-S50 type sooner! Thanks EPSON! Worth every penny [I only had 1 poor feed on a very thin paper that went crunch feeding. It does help to seperate the paper into like sizes though. It has various automatic setting which I have yet to utilize, but I just know I'll be thrilled. Photos and small receipts fed through with a plastic holder, though, I'd rather put on a stationery tray scanner - both for DPI and and the much higher definition I require. I would recommend this printer [GT-S50] to anyone who does a lot of invoice and printed paperwork saving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drpeter My favorite office machine!
This is now an older model but I like it better than the newer ones (which I also own!). I've used one for 3 years, this is my second one. It has a display which is useful to make sure it is on and ready. The newer ones only have an idiot light which doesn't tell you anything. The GT-S50 also weighs about twice what the new ones do, which makes me think it has more substantial motors and power supply. It scans giant mixed stacks of documents with only rare jams. It is my favorite office machine!

I have been using the scanner for 4 years without any significant problems except it sometimes misfeeds. I believe the misfeed is due to the condition of the paper I'm feeding. It always amazes me how it can grab just one sheet, from a large stack, and feed it through. I didn't give it 5 stars because the output tray could be larger (extend out); i.e., a large stack of paper, fed through, gets jammed on the output tray -- this requires me to monitor the output tray if a large stack of paper (15 sheets or more) is being scanned.

The scanner brand new needed a lot of baby sitting of the paper being fed into the scanner. It says it can scan more than 20 pages at a time without multiple pages being sucked in together, however, I am down to feeding 4 pages in at a time now, as it will start to suck multiple pages if I put more than 4 pages in at a time. however, scanning pictures works great, the quality of the finished scan is beautiful.

We keep almost no paper documents since we started with the GT-S50! It was easier to keep some due to the need to load, turn the document over for double sided items and the snail speed for a long document.
All of this is history with the GT-S50 Scanner!!! I am delighted. It scans quickly, clearly with automatic page reduction and double sided. If you want to end the mountains of paper storage, get a Pro GT-S50 and eliminate the junk paper dilema.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GINNY great product but not working with Win 8.1
This was a great product until I had to update my computer after 7 years. I've tried everything to get it to work with my Windows 8.1...it just won't work. I even bought a new USB cord thinking that was the problem. I can't seem to find the right driver to get the error resolved. Any suggestions or solutions to this problem would be great. So right now, I don't recommend anyone to purchase this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aggie PERFECT IN EVERY WAY
I have had my scanner for almost 4 years and use it all the time. My husband is a cancer patient and I have had numerous forms for insurance companies and the place of employment, etc. I am an independent contractor and use the scanner for my business.
The one complaint I have is that the only software I was able to find is Presto Page Manager. If you have any other recommendations of software for my scanner, I would like to be informed of such.

I use the scanner many times most days. It is easy to use, reliable, and quickly scans multiple pages of documents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tess Office workhorse worthy
We picked this up in Feb of 2014. love it. It is a workhorse. It has accomplished thousands of pages as we work towards a paperless office. We are not sure how to get rid of the squeaking wheels, and after a while of constant scanning it will make us reboot, but other than that, the quality, and performance have been fantastic....

Rated 4 out of 5 by Examiner Good product, gone bad
I purchased this several years ago, and didn't ever use the high capacity built into the machine. It worked well for several year, but now insists on trying to do multiple copies of about ten of each document, making me wait until it finishes its errors, which forces me to go onto the screen and adjust manually to keep the one good one I need. The company's support people tell me I can't resent the machine to do only one copy. They said the motherboard must be faulty. Warranty is expired, and I don't know what the cost to fix might be.
Good machine when it functioned as intended. I just need to know how to reset the # of copies thing, and can't find anything in the user manual.
