Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why No Rechargable Batteries? Moving up from a DS-30. Disappointing that this DS-40 doesn't just have some rechargeable batteries in it. Why cheap out on 4 AA's that are not charged when plugged in to USB or the additional cost 5V power supply?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No power adapter Great that this thing is actually powered by usb, but it does not include a power adapter. It comes with batteries instead. Even Gameboys come with power adapters nowadays. Get with the times ESPON.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to instal on wireless network I bought this EPSON DS-40 scanner today from Staples but the wireless connection is very difficult to install. I kept on running from my wireless router then connecting it to the EPSON scanner and I id this 4x. I thought it will not be successful and I was worried what to do. But then I did the last and 4th installation of the wireless network and it was successful finally!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WorkForce DS-40 I purchased this a year ago and it did really well until a month ago. It simply would not calibrate correctly. When you lined the item up to scan, unless it was more than 4 inches wide, it would put a two inch black border on the right side of the scanned item. Very frustrating. Because I scan small receipts this was awful. Had to purchase a new one. Hope to get more than a years service out of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, almost perfect... I bought this scanner to take on a trip to my ancestral lands to digitize family photos of folks that I visited. It has performed very well for this purpose. Batteries last a long time, it's compact, and the quality of the scans are good. There are only a couple of things worthy of mentioning that made me shave 1 star from an otherwise perfect score. First, a minor annoyance. It would've been very helpful if Epson included a thin plastic sleeve that photos could be inserted into in order to make the scanning go more smoothly. Some old photos may have creases or debris from being glued to collages, and the sleeve would ensure the scanner doesn't get dirty and the feed is smooth. Second, and more annoying, is that the "auto align" software feature seems to be TOO smart. Instead of the intuitive interpretation of the feature, where you'd expect the software to examine the edges and auto-align them so that the scanned image is straight, it instead seems to look at the content of the image and align the photo to what it thinks is the level view. The result is that the images almost always come out even more misaligned than if the feature is turned off. For example, if the subjects tilt their heads in a photo, the software rotates the image so that the heads are upright, resulting in a tilted final image. I've found that disabling this feature is the only option, combined with gently helping the photo through the scanner. Great little scanner, all things considered, especially if you manage to purchase it on sale like I did.
