    Rated 1 out of 5 by from worse scanner I bought this trash and used few times and quit working because software and called service many times and reached once but problems kept coming back. It is not the scanner; it is the stupid software. Finally have to throw away.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good when works, but doesnt seem to work often I bought this scanner and it worked perfect and then stopped working and kept producing error code E1460-B305 and says it unavailable, preventing me from using the scanner. Too late to bring back. Tried everything and product is pretty much useless at this point.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Every Time is Like the First Time We bought this scanner around 3 months ago and have used it a handful of times. The scans come through with decent clarity, which is nice. Once all the software and drivers are installed it's easy to use, however, the problem I have is that every time I want to use it, I have to uninstall and then reinstall all the software and drivers, which means that when I want to scan a document, instead of it taking 20-30 seconds, it takes 20-30 minutes. Pretty frustrating. I have a new HP laptop I got a couple months after we bought the scanner, so we're not trying to use new tech with old tech. If it wasn't for that huge inconvenience this would have 4 or 5 stars.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hangs/crashes on a regular basis When it works it's a handy product. But it can only handle at most 20 scans before the software crashes. And the **ONLY** way to get it to start working again is to unplug iot and re-attach it. Even though the software probes for the device and sees it, it STILL won't run until you've unplugged it and plugged it back in. It is incapable of restarting itself otherwise. The software can't remember settings like preferred file format from one usage (or after it crashes) to another. The "scan" button on the device does nothing even though the application is running. If your receipt is too long it will DEFINITELY crash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Portable Scanner I wanted to write a review to give a different perspective on the epson portable scanner. I see there are a few negative reviews, however my perspective is that the unit works very well. My worktruck is my office and I use this scanner often and have never had an issue. I find it durable and has sat in my work bag in minus 30 degree weather overnight to work the next day no problem. I would recommend this scanner to anyone who needs something portable to scan their documents with.
