Rated 4 out of 5 by from From tech to new I purchased Epson ES 400 to replace Xerox 3220 with a flatbed. While xerox work ok it had a tendency to jam. Epson beside being faster doesn't jam due to the feeder let's paper drop into the feeder not pull into where at time's multiple sheets clause a jam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product At Any Price 1. Does not use a lot of memory to save scanned documents. Makes them easy to email to others, particularly with limits on data transfer. 2. Not quite idiot-proof for its intuitive handling of documents. Would be if it automatically "woke up" a computer in sleep mode to make saving a scan that much faster and simpler. 3. Scans are straight and crisp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly I was able to scan in all my documents. The interface is easy to use, it's fast, it scanned both sides of the document and created wonderful clear pdf files to read.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WOULD NOT RECOMMEND! The scanner is great initially, but I am on my second (and last one). The first one was great for first 6 months and then it just stopped working, wont recognize documents being loaded. Thought I would give another a try because when it works it was great. so bought a second one. It is now 7 months and this one is now doing the same thing. wasted enough- will not buy again!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DC-510 model in the ES400 box I intended to purchase the ES-400 from OfficeMax. when I returned to our pharmacy, I opened the box and the incorrect scanner, DC-510, was in the box. The box was sealed when purchased so It was not an OfficeMax error but a manufacturing error. We took it back and acquired a replacement which was correct.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Customer Service I purchased the ES-400 because I have to scan documents that are mixed letter and legal size paper. When I print the documents they all print letter size. I contacted EPSON 3 days ago and the service rep said they were updating their system and she would call me back. I have not heard from anyone. This is very poor customer service. I 9a scanner that is completely useless and it is costing me money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, easy to use - perfect tool to digitize my life I've been putting off this overwhelming project to digitize everything in my and my kid's life - I live in small condo so not much room for the 15 or so bankers's boxes filled with so many artifacts of life so decided to give the Epson ES400 a try. The setup was so easy and now I'm scanning everything and organizing into folders on a pin drive. It's amazing how it took a global pandemic to give me the motivation (and the time) to get started on this very important project that I've been thinking about and stressing about for so many years. Also bought an Epson flatbed scanner to scan oversized items or things that won't fit thru autofeed. Thanks Epson!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor design The WorkForce ES-400 I am currently using is a replacement. After just a few months, the original unit started giving notice that the cartridges were out of paper when they definitely had paper that I reloaded multiple times. I contacted Epson and they sent a replacement (refurbished) unit, which had the same problem. I then had to wait for Epson to send a "new" unit. All this time I had no printer to use for my job. The ES-400 has two paper cartridges. I use #2 for legal paper The cartridge is not long enough to fully load legal paper, so I have to put in a few pages at a time and push it closed with paper still overhanging. Sometimes this works; sometimes not - like today. It took approximately 20 minutes to print 8 pages. I finally had to use the rear paper feed, which also was a challenge, due to several pages of paper having jammed in the unit while trying to use cartridge #2. Also wasted about a dozen sheets of legal paper. This Epson product is probably the worst all-in-one unit I have ever used over many years. When this one quits - again - I will probably put my work on hold if the local Staples does not have a better brand in stock and wait for delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up. Due to Covid 19, everyone had to work from home. This screener was purchased for me because it was a necessity for my job duties. I had no problems set it up and did not need any help from anyone.
