Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not easy to set up Wireless wouldn't connect. Even using the USB cable, it took 3 tries. it's 2018, this shouldn't be so difficult.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fast scanner Scanner is compact and functions very well. Only complaint is the cheapness of the plastic paper tray where documents land after scanning. This portion of the scanner is very poor for what you pay for this unit. Small plastic piece that stops the paper comes off very easily and is difficult to put back on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Sucker is FAST!! I've had this now for just short of a month and I have used it a few times now so I'm not an expert or an experienced user just yet but that won't last for long. What little I have had time to use it, I'm really satisfied with the scan results. Oh, did I tell you that it is super fast. I'm still trying to get used to the way you load it and the way the paper or subject has to be orientated. Once you get past that and you are ready to scan, this sucker just zips along and it scans super fast on both sides if you need it to. It does a great job on pictures if they are part of the document that you are scanning. This is something I was very worried about because a great majority of the documents that i'm going to start scanning and the reason I bought it is that I will be scanning magazines with lots of pictures that I no longer have room for storage (they take up a tremendous amount of space, especially when you are talking 25 to 30+ years or in some cases even longer.) and I am planning on throwing them in the garbage when I'm done with the scanning process. So I have to admit that it is performing way better than I expected it to. I'm really glad that I broke down and spent the $$ on it and I'm very happy with my purchase. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot Register unless live in Canada I could not register without claiming I lived in Canada so I selected the province and zip code of Epson. You guys do sell to us in the USA. I have not used the product yet, wasting time registering

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, convenient, and accurate Frustrated by having to scan multiple pages with a flatbed scanner, I bought this model. I am thrilled with how much time and trouble it is saving me. I'm only keeping the flatbed to scan slides and negatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Content I have had a Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner for years and have been very unhappy with it. After the ScanSnap tech support couldn't fix the constant problems, I just gave up and bought the Epson ES-500W. I love it! I should have bought it sooner. Thank you, Epson!

Epson ES-500W Review from TrulyGadgets

“It looks great, works with just about every device you can think of and offers TWAIN compatibility too. Wireless scanning isn’t a necessity for everyone, but if you can make use of it, then this might just be the best desktop professional scanning companion on the market for you.”

Epson ES-500W Duplex Scanner Review from Apple Tech Talk

“The hardware is well built and the 50 sheet ADF will get you through those large scanning projects without breaking a sweat. This is a tough piece of hardware that has a look and feel that says it is ready to take on the day-to-day challenges of a small office. With a 4,000 page daily duty cycle, it should stand up to whatever you throw at it.”
