2 out of 5 eggsRequires an Epson Printer to make direct copies

Pros: Scans well
1200 dpi flatbed
two sided adf

Cons: Will not make copies direct to a printer except an Epson

Other Thoughts: Beware! The copy to printer function in Document Capture Pro only works with an Epson Printer. If you do not have an Epson printer you will not be able to print copies of a document using Document Capture Pro without saving it to your computer first. The separate Epson Scan application has no connection to print directly at all. To print a copy of a document it must first be saved to the computer then printed and then if you don’t want to keep an electronic copy on your computer it must be deleted from its file then deleted again from the recycle bin.
23 Clicks are necessary to scan and print a file when you don’t want to keep the electronic copy. “Epson-Scan” may work with a few less clicks but not significantly so. You still have to save the file to your computer somewhere. Open it into an application in order to print it and then close the application and delete the unwanted files. UGH!!! If you have an Epson printer this problem is not supposed to exist. There is a print button in two places in the Document Pro window which will, I am told go directly to an Epson printer when you have one. When you don’t have an Epson Printer you get a message saying “The printer Driver is not available. Quit the application, then reinstall the printer driver.” There is however nowhere to reinstall the driver and none other than an Epson Driver and printer will ever be recognized. I have verified this with two separate second echelon techs from Epson. The other save to computer functions connected with the scanner seem to be working well.
If you have an Epson printer, all is well. If you don’t want to make unsaved copies, all is well. But! If you want to make unsaved copies and you don’t have an Epson printer, do you really want an Epson Scanner with Document Capture Pro?????
I do not advocate buying an Epson printer to solve this problem. I am questioning the appropriateness of buying an Epson Scanner. I think Epson should know better.
If you don’t believe that 23 clicks are necessary, here are the steps..
Click 1: Open Document Capture Pro. Click 2: Click folder icon in the destination choices. Click 3: Choose Desktop unless you want to save the file. It will be easiest to find and delete. : Click 4: Click on the scanner icon. This opens the Main Settings dialogue box listing choices and parameters of the scan. Click 5: When you have set your parameters for the scan, click the highlighted scan button in right bottom corner. The document is scanned. An Image of the scan appears in the main window and also in the thumbnails window. Click 6: Click “File” to open its menu. Click 7: Mouse over “send” to open the send menu and click “Folder”. The Batch File dialogu box opens. Click 8: Choose file type, name and any other options listed. PDF seems to be best for “quick” (?) copy, and click OK. A PDF icon for the file saved appears on your desktop in the first open space available. Click 9: “Folder – Progress” box appears with advancing green line

5 out of 5 eggsGreat scanner

Pros: Good form factor and great features.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for one of our employees. He came to me today and said "I love this scanner!" He makes duplex images from time to time and it handles them in one pass. Based on what I have seen it is a great scanner.
