Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 Color Document Scanner
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.

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.

I was using Xerox scanners and tried one of this out due to price. It was amazing! The GT-S50 feeds paper what will chock the Xerox and keeps on moving. I've deployed about a dozen of these to customers and they all love them.

Replacement Parts an Issue
When first purchased I would have given much higher marks. Even through the first year. But by time the roller and pad needed replacing the second time the parts were 'out of stock' and are still unavailable six months later.
I have since purchased another company's products to replace our 3 GT-S50s here.

I have scanned well over 25,000 pages, one side and two and have had great results. The only thing that is important is to clean the scan windows all the time. The scanner has been a life saver.

We have five of these that we are unable to get replacement rollers for. They are not much good if you are unable to use them. This item has been on back order by the manufacturer for 4 months that I am aware of. It is ridiculous!

Speed, quality and document handling accuracy is the best I have ever used and I have had 3 other big brand name scanner and they do not come close in overall performance. Easy to set up, configure and use. Thank you EPSON for a great and reliable product.

Works like a charm!
Just installed today. So far we are very pleased. It is much more efficient, speedier & far more versatile than our last scanner, a different brand.
Hope indeed to be be reporting as sweetly after months of usage.

This has been a work horse for our office. This is our second unit,not that the first failed, but due to the durability and all the docs we scan we decided to add to our overall plan which required another. For the features it provides all we need and have not had any issues whatsoever. Plus the setup is a breeze.

Excellent scanner for document only.
This scanner was very easy to use and have many choice of formats to store the documents. The scanning speed is very fast so that I can scan 20 page documents in double side in a few seconds. This scanner provides less resolution than my flat bed and the color copy is not suitable for archiving. In fact, it has a blue streaks in one part of the scanned image. The plastic sheet protector has a neat instruction on the top part of the sheet but it becomes annoying to see the instruction for every other pages when scanning double sided paper (like magazine paper). I decided not to use PaperPort-11 which was bundled with the scanner since it does not offer much advantage for my archiving. It would be nice to see if a good file organizer software is bundled. In general, I am satisfied with the product.
