Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nightmare to pair with your computer I purchased this scanner a year ago and after countless hours of trying to get it to pair with ANY computer through WIFI or any other wireless method has been unsuccessful. I just use a cord and everything I plug the cord in, it makes me hate this thing even more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like it but no able to communicate with my computer I like it, but does not want to communicate with my computers. Set up sucks unless I use USB cable. I wish Epson would fix their software. I have to call technical support and use networking work arounds for reliable operation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Starts Fast Now Goes Slow I bought this a month ago and it was super fast and now it's super slow. The online help says to turn off quiet mode. It doesn't have a quiet mode. Then it says to lower the resolution. Nope that doesn't work either. Try and find a person to talk to and that's a no go. I'm sure eventually I'll figure something out I hope to get it back working properly. Right now I think a 1 star might get me the help that I need because it's certainly not available online.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Software is bad TLDR: They are migrating from document capture to scansmart. document capture has been removed and now scan smart is the default app removing much needed functionality. When i purchased this product I was missled by the website. This while this printer does support document capture there is no download link as they are migrating. This means you can no longer automate different jobs. ie put in receipts press scan button and have receipts added to some drive. now all scans need to be done from a PC running scansmart. load paper and then press scan on the laptop not the scanner. rendering the scan button useless. to add to the pain the bundled installer failed and i had to individually install all the available software. and to top it off the nuance software failed to install and they told me to call nuance. I will be returning this and trying out an app based solution.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Scanner, But Poor Software & Product Support I bought this scanner in November, 2019 to replace a Fujitsu model I had for 6 years. It would no longer would work with Apple's latest OS, Catalina. I selected this model based on the reviews and it was less expensive than a comparable Fujitsu. It is a much better scanner than the Fujitsu, which would jam frequently. However, the software is inferior to Fujitsu's. With the Fujitsu I could continuously scan multiple documents (not pages) and the software would open them as separate PDF files so they could be saved individually after I was finished scanning. The Epson software requires each scanned document(s) be saved or printed, etc. prior to starting a new scan. That means getting up, loading the documents, pressing the scan button and after the scanning is finished going to the computer to save, print, etc. before starting a new scan. That is a big pane and had I known that I would not have purchased an Epson scanner. I have searched Epson's website, but have been unable to find anything about this problem. Very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fast Scanning I am glad I bought this scanner. Works very well and makes scanning very fluid. The reason I only gave three stars was for the installation process. Very difficult to install the software. I don't know if it is because of the recent Windows upgrade or if this is standard. We actually purchased another and we are having issues with the install on that one as well. Different issue but trouble installing.
