Rated 2 out of 5 by from MALFANCUTION IT WAS A GREAT TOOL, BUT AFTER A FEW MONTHS EVERYTIME I CLICK ON THE ICON TO SCAN WILL SAY THE SCANNER WAS NOT CONNECTED. IT DON'T MATTER WHICH WAY I CONNECTED, WI-FI OR AP MODE OR USB. I HAD TO RE-INSTALLED IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this DS-40 Scanner!! I bought DS-40 a months ago and I am so glad that I did! It's very useful especially because it's portable and practical! You can bring it on your bag and use it at your work place, working great!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality This is my second DS-40 scanner. I love it for a single sheet scanner. I also have another Epson scanner (don't have it with me right now) that feeds multiple sheets. They are both superior to other brands!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great little scanner This is a great little scanner, and realy easy to use. Either hard wired or wi-fi the unit works really well. I make a lot of notes at work on pieces of rough paper, so it is great that I can just take the scanner to work and use it at my desk to scan in my notes. We have a couple of "industrial" scanners only about sixty feet from my desk, but using the DS-40 allows me to scan while I'm still sitting at my desk, as soon as I realize that I need to scan any notes; I then put the scanned notes into a OneNote page and it is building up my "database" of usefull stuff that I do at work. I'm an IT professional, so I have come across a lot of hardware in my time (going back a long way, to printed cards and acoustic couplers) this is one of the best investments I ever made. I use it for scanning receipts, printed bills and all sorts of other stuff (including my kids grade cards) while I'm at home, it,s especially useful when I don't want to get out my full size printer/scanner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Online Downloading I am having difficulty downloading this scanner to my laptop. I do not have a portable drive and the directions for downloading software to a computer are nebulous. Otherwise, I have seen this product work and am impressed with it which is why I bought it. Hopefully, I will get it working sometime today.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well. I've had the scanner for a few weeks now and it works pretty well. Very thin paper seems to give it a bit of trouble though. Maybe it can be adjusted. Scan quality is very nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This scanner has made my monthly upload of receipts so much easier. It is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and convenient I bought this scanner to help control the overwhelming amount of paper that needed to be filed. Now, I scan the docs and receipts, store them in an online storage site, and everyone within the organization who needs to see them has access. No more documents being pulled from the file and then not put back where they belong! It has been a Godsend. I am also using it to scan medical reports so they are readily available when going to the doctor. Very portable and easy to use.
