Epson WorkForce DS-510 Color Document Scanner
Great Performance, Great Product...Poor Driver
This product is great, I've scanned 1000s of documents in the span of two weeks; so, this product can handle a heavy workload. Enough said.
HOWEVER, by the time this product reaches you, the software driver disc that it comes with is already outdated. So don't waste your time even installing. Simply, go to the Epson Support site (http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/SupportIndex.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes) and download the latest driver for this scanner.
Otherwise, this scanner will eventually crash...especially if your like me and have other programs, software and/or devices running at the same time on your computer.

OUR MAC CANNOT RECOGNIZE THE EPSON SCANNER. WE'VE INSTALLED THE SOFTWARE AND UPDATES. THE SOFTWARE IS A HOT MESS, AND CUSTOMERS ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT IT ONL INE. DO NOT BUY THIS SCANNER.

This is the third Epson scanner we have had and it is faster, easier to use, jam-free and works great with our printer(s).

Nice and Compact
I purchased the DS-510 for one basic task - to scan in home receipts that pile up. It does a super job. Fast and easy to use, it exceeded my expectations. I scanned all day one Saturday and although i had two paper jams (same paper -slight fold in corner) it performed great. I did a lot of comparison before getting this unit and for the features and price, it was the best choice out there. After use it folds up and stores in a corner cubby on my home work station.
A few cons - the lower paper exit tray has to be stowed with two hands as it will rock left or right and bind up. Also the software took a little time figuring out the basics but then it became simple and easy to use.

Fast and Small
I had a years worth of scanning to do and completed it all in just one evening. This unit takes up very little desk space and is very fast. I love the ability to do double sided scanning and ability to remove blank pages prior to saving.
Set up was a little tricky and I had to reinstall the scanner again to get it functioning correctly. However once completed, I was good to go.
There is a slight learning curve for setting up your files, but not too bad. A small price to pay for it's speed and overall ease of use.
I really like this scanner. It also accepted envelopes and multiple sheets at a time. I believe I feed over 50 sheets in one run without any problems.
I plan to scan my year end receipts with this scanner. I'll be interested to see how it works. It will also accept business cards. It is similiar to the Neat, but I believe it is much faster.

Received the scanner today 12/09/2013. Installation was very easy, had it up and scanning in about 5 minutes. I scanned a photograph and color document, both were scanned fast and turned out very well. Time will tell.

The Software could be better
Great machine, very quick and efficient but not easy to figure out, it takes a while to get use to. The program "Document Capture Pro" does not launch properly ( must open it from the start screen not the short cut), the "Epson Scan" runs better. The user guide does not explain the different functions and the software set up in details, error and trial may help more.
