Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised!! I am regularly using the scanner and it meets my needs easily and quickly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just bought second one - for wife Bought first GT-1500 several years ago. It has worked perfectly - still does. Paper feed is great even on sheets that are somewhat crumpled or had been stapled. Yes, you can scan a document that was printed on both sides ( to a PDF file) and make the pages fall in correct page number sequence - this is an easy (but not intuitive) 3 step process. Use auto doc feeder to scan all odd pages 1,3,5, etc then select "Add Page" in the pop-up window. Turn the document over and use auto doc feeder to scan even pages 6,4,2, . Click on "edit" in the GT-1500 pop-up window, click on the icon "12345.." and the pages will be put in the correct 123456 sequence when saved. Ignore the small numbers shown below the sheet icons after each scan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No luck Purchased this scanner over a year ago, but only installed it today. Right off the bat, it won't work, but none of the troubleshooting options has solved the problem. Also, after installing software from CD, my Outlook email quit working, so I had to restore computer's settings, thereby uninstalling scanner software. Am lost, and have no idea what to do, so I cannot offer a positive review--or a negative one, honestly, because I have been unable to try the scanner out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GT-1500 scanner Great scanner - replaces an Epson 4180 that finally gave up the ghost after a decade. 90 degree cover opening is nice, doc feeder is great. Downsides: there is no "home corner" to snug originals up against, you must align them in the center or you won't get an entire edge scanned. Also, the Epson Scan software won't let me select a paper size when using the ADF in "Professional" mode -- it scans as though it's an 8.5 x 14 legal document. Works OK in "Office" mode though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had this device for several years, and it still works great. But I change my computers every 18-24 months, and I am tired of having to register it every time. It still works great after many years, and I like being able to scan in multi-page PDF format, the automatic feeder, and the higher resolutions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scanner We were facing rekeying enormous documents. This scanner saved the day! The scanning process was quick and OCR capabilities worked very well, with a bit of reformatting afterward. Thanks Epson!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GT-1500 scanner Initial work with scanner was easy to setup and simple to use. There is a problem with scanning when the EPSON Scanner program is not started up on the computer. Leave the scanner program running and the buttons on the scanner will work. I wish the USER MANUAL was not online but rather on the install CD but it seems to work only IF you are connected to the internet.
