Rated 5 out of 5 by lala Epson Scanner DS-510
We already have 3 Epson scanners in our office (over two years old)and purchased two more of the new model DS-510. We love these scanners they work very well with our office software, easy to use and easy to install. I want one for home use now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SmartUser Scanner is fine but UI is horribaly outdated
User interface is nothing but HORRIBLE. You cannot simply scan a page, preview and name it. You first ave to preview, if you like what you see there is no option to just save it. You have to RESCAN the same thing and then save it.
You have to select folder and name before scanning. It's just tedious. Hope they come up with a new interface.

After having just purchased this scanner today and using it for only a few hours, I found it to be easily and quickly set up. The scanner has a compact design when not in use and scans both single and double sided pages quickly with minimal issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jason It's good but fragile
Good scanner. Does what it says. NOT durable at all. The rollers are replaceable, which is good, but the tiny little plastic pieces they connect with are very fragile. They break pretty easily. This is not a good scanner for continued use.
Someone I know pulled the paper out of the scanner without unlocking it. I know that's wrong but it easily broke a tiny plastic shaft that is connected with the top roller. There is no way to open this unit without a complete disassemble. The gears and shafts should be a lot more durable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RB Great scanner, horrible user interface
I have many Epson products, this one is a dog. EXTREMELY difficult to save documents where you want to save them. No way to set a default folder.
Sadly I returned the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wes Good for personal use
This works fine for my personal use. Not as fast as ScanSnap, but costs much less. I have had no problems at all. Seems solid enough to endure. I recommend this for personal use.

This has truly been a workhorse! As a bookkeeper, I scan hundreds of documents daily. I've had the product for about 3 months with absolutely no issues. It has been a huge time saver over previous scanning methods. Highly recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nomads Not working
Trying to set up with macbook pro. Computer does not recognize the device. Installation instructions say do not connect until you've loaded disk and downloaded software. Macbook pro doesn't have a cd drive. Went to the website to download driver and that's where I am now....stuck without a lot of help options

Sometimes the scanner will not communicate with my computer, when the day before it worked perfectly. I reboot my computer, try a different USB port, restart the scanner. Any ideas?

I have used this scanner for about 10 months now. For a few of those months, I needed to scan all of the files in my office to digital format. We are talking anywhere from 2 to 1,000 pages per file and I had over 1,000 files to scan. I got this scanner primarily to handle that load and boy am I glad that I got it. It took all of those scans in stride. After hundreds of thousands of scans, it still has yet to have any problems. It does not squeak or anything of the sort. It's a little pricey, but if you are looking for the top of the line scanner that can scan color, front and back at the same time, and do it all very quickly, then this is the scanner for you. If you are looking to do just a little bit of scanning here and there, then it might be a bit much for you, unless you don't mind paying the hefty price for the occasional use type scanner. I recommend anyone to buy it if they have it in their budget.
