Epson WorkForce DS-510 Color Document Scanner
I just started a telecom consulting business and had a old scanner that only did one sided and operated very slow. I started going to my wifes office that had a big floor model commercial copier, scanner, fax which was great BUT after purchasing the Epson DS-510 I have no need to leave my office to go anywhere to do scanning. The Epson DS-510 has exceeded all of my expectations. The speed, simplicity of use, the size (so compact). the quality, the price, and I could go on. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has a need for copying small are large quantities of material.

Been using this scanner for about 2 months. It has really helped me digitize my documents. Why 4 stars? Has to do with the software included. It's very basic and doesn't have any document management features in it. I decided to move to Alfresco Community Edition which is a document management solution. This has allowed me to easily import scanned documents and tag them for future look ups. The Epson doesn't scan directly into the app but I think with additional research it could. I merely drag/drop or upload documents into the system.
Hardware is 5 star. I've not encountered any issues. It reads in documents of different sizes and shapes; however, it does have an issue if the document is longer than 14 inches I noticed (e.g. car purchasing signing papers).
I'm glad I got it.

Epson advertises software for Mac users that won't run on Mac 10.10 or PCs only. Still trying to find Business Card Software before I return the scanner.

I labored several days over the selection of a document scanner. I needed to archive boxes of paperwork accumulated in in my business for over twenty years. It worked right out of the box. There was an 10 minute install that required very little input from the user. I was sceptical about the document feed claims so I purposely placed into the feed tray at once ten color pages front and back, a text page on dark red paper, a sales receipt from the grocery store, and believe it or not one of those 3 foot long rebates receipts from staples (I cut it in three pieces with scissors). I selected scan both sides and make searchable PDF. It fed perfectly. All docs were as readable as the originals. I did a word search for mayo and up came my grocery receipt with mayo highlighted. In the past two weeks I have fed over three thousand docs in the little critter and there has not been one misfed. I usually put about 45 in the tray at one time. It scans papers faster than I can accumulated of new stack of 45. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to archive docs. It can be set up to scan to multiple folders and I can scan directly to dropbox and the cloud.

DS510 will not install on win 7
Multiple attempts to install the software failed.
Download Epson driver off of the website. Failed.
I will try to contact epson tech support for a resolution then I might be able to give this a better review.

PREPARING FOR TAX TIME, THE DS-510 DOES AN EXCELLENT SCANNING JOB ON 8.5" X 11" SHEETS OF PAPER AND BUSINESS CARDS. USING A CURRENT READER PROGRAM. FOR MOBILITY, RETRIEVING FILES IS A SIMPLE PROCESS. FILES CAN BE E-MAILED, BURNED ON A CD, PRINTED, OR, SAVED ON A THUMB DRIVE. ACQUIRING HELP ON THE HELPLINE NUMBER PROVIDES EXCELLENT INFORMATION.

I had no problem with the setup. It took me a while to try the product, but after I read in the user's guide how to operate, it has done just what I need, to rid myself of papers and put everything in a digital file. I do hope that finding the paper needed will be as easy.

Purchased as a lower cost option for my office staff as a secondary scanner. Very impressed with the speed and quality of scans. I will definitely be purchasing another one. Would have been a 5 STAR rating if the ability to Name the Document at the same time it is saved was an option. And if it would scan a paper with a Post-it attached.
Overall a GREAT PURCHASE!!

Great tool: Epson WorkForce DS-510
I have been struggling to rid my office of paper for the past year with a single sheet scanner. Although a single sheet scanner is necessary for some things, when I started using this document scanner, I finally was able to see progress. The speed is more than adequate, and the software was easy to use. In three months I have converted 5 (78 qt) plastic bins worth of paper into electronic documents. And, with the software, all the pdf files created are searchable. I could not be more pleased.

We are a busy tax office and insurance agency. The Epson DS-510 is great for not only scanning documents but also ids, insurance cards, etc.
Works well in our environment.
