Pros: It's small, and easy to store on my desk. Fairly easy to set up using the instructions. Convenient if you have to scan a page here or there throughout the day.
Frustrations: They only give you one wet cleaning cloth. I had to use it within the first month of owning the scanner, to remove a streak that was appearing on all my scans, so I'm out of luck if it happens again. Not great for scanning multiple pages at once. Occasionally the program will freeze, and I have to force-quit and start over on my scanning.
Update 9/14/17: A software update became available and seems to have fixes most of my frustrations! No longer freezes and causes me to force-quit. I do still wish it came with more cleaning cloths.
Update 2/5/18: Okay, the freezing has started happening again. It happens often enough to be VERY frustrating. Especially if I'm 5 pages into a scan and it freezes so I lose everything. Why is this so hard, Epson??
updated 27Apr17 - After getting all of my matte photos scanned I tried again to scan my glossy photos. To my surprise it did scan most of them with a tiny bit of assistance. A gentle finger pressure on the photos while it's pulling ensured that they didn't stick. I'm bringing my 3 star review up to a 4 start just because I didn't need to buy another scanner to get all of my digitizing done.
The software, as usual for scanners, is a mess. But as scanner software goes, it's not that much of one. "Document Capture Pro" doesn't seem to me to do anything that the "EPSON Scan" program can do. However, it seems that the scanner button has to set up with Document Capture Pro.
It's easy to create multi-page PDFs, even mixing color, gray-scale, and B&W. I haven't done, nor do I intend to do any photo scanning. But it certainly does what I want, and well.
Wireless connection seems to be unsecured. Wireless set up is done using WPS, so forget about networks where you dont have access to the router.
For the same price, there are Brother scanners that can work independently of the computer, have rechargeable batteries, etc...

I've already tried plugging into a different unit, using a different cord, and so on. Remember, I've been using this for like six months and I know how it works. Now it doesn't.
I tried the online returns portal to get this defective product returned or replaced but there is no option even though it was sold by Amazon. Looks like I'm stuck with this paper weight that cost about $150.00.
Long story short...don't buy this product in case it fails and you need to toss it out or recycle it.
Spend your money on something that actually works and can be sent back if it fails.
1) it jams, or at least says it is jammed, fairly often. I always line up the paper and it looks like it is going through straight and no problem but then just stops and I have to pull the paper out and redo the whole process.
2) scans of full pages are often weird looking and slanted. I ran the calibration papers through so that shouldn't be the problem. It feels like a lot of money to spend on a scanner that doesn't seem to scan a page without jamming or without warping the final image.
3) the software constantly says the scanner is no longer connected mid scan. I have it plugged into a powered USB port and there is power going to the unit. I have to unplug, and then re-plug the device, close and re-open the software before establishing a connection.
The device is tiny, about the size of a folding umbrella and it even comes with a nice carry pouch to protect it. It is well made and quite sturdy. Handling it gives no hint of flimsiness although I would not recommend handling it roughly.
Comes with a little kit of cleaning sheets, a calibration sheet and disks for both Windows and Mac. Very nice.
It should be noted that I had one heck of a time getting this device to work. Calls to Epson left them just as mystified as I was. After a bit of experimentation, it turns out the installer requires a couple of Windows Services --Windows Image Acquisition and Shell Hardware Detection-- to be actually running before the drivers will install. It's fairly common for IT people to stop or disable the Shell Hardware Detection as a security measure, since it produces that pop-up window when you insert a usb device. So if you run into problems check these services and be sure they're on Automatic.
I can easily recommend this to my clients and friends.
I am right handed and due to an accident have limited use of my left hand, I find feeding receipts into the scanner to be really simple.
Would certainly buy again.
With the included software, you can "click click" and scan things to pdf very quickly, whether it's one page or multiple pages.
- I couldn't get the WIFI mode working though.
- The mobile app is garbage, it doesn't do anything like auto-crop and stuff, making it useless.
A piece of "dirt" got stuck at some point but the scanner comes with a cleaning kit, so that solved it.
I am super happy since I need a scanner occasionally and I was tired of scanning with my phone and dealing with light and stuff.
Easy to use.
This is a scanner for scanning letter and legal size sheets, business cards too. It will not scan a sheet longer than 14''. I read a review from another user saying she could not scan a grocery receipt because it was longer than 14". She is right. I tried it and it stopped at 14''.
It still works fine for my purposes.
