Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scanner I have had the same scanner for 10 years and it finally decided it no longer wanted to live. I did a lot of research as I use the scanner for work everyday. After days of looking up reviews and stats I decided on the ES-500W and so glad I did. It scans fast and clean. Looks like the design will last a long time as there doesn't seem to be any parts that will wear out like my last scanner. I had to replace a part on it at least every 6 months to a year. The ES-500W is an amazing scanner with a very small footprint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printers & scanners I have been using printer ET-2760 for quite some time and just recently added ES-500W. Great products and I am very happy. With this quality products life is a bit easier and simpler... Epson keep on producing these quality products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very difficult to set up networking I purchased the scanner for a small office to be used as a shared scanner. I was hoping that I would be able to have a small machine that can scan to a location on our network drive with the option to directly/simply print to our existing printers to use it as a "copy" machine when needed. Unfortunately, my hopes were not realized. This just seems to be generally a technologically lagging product. It is very difficult to set up over wireless to used as shared network device. I had to load and unload the software several times, with the USB cable connected/disconnected at certain times to get things set up for the first computer. After it was connected to the network, it was easier to connect other computers. It does not save to a shared network file over a public network to a network drive. The scanner does not print to a printer other than another Epson. So I was told by the service agent when I called their service phone number. Therefore it is not possible for us to use it as a compact "Copy" machine except to save the file as a PDF and then print it. It is fast enough to do - but it is an indirect workaround. Lastly, the phone scan app is hard to maneuver as well. The scanner sets itself up as a wireless network router and you have to connect using the wifi on your phone. Which means that the phone is without internet at the time of the scanner connection. During this phone connection process the wifi pairing is lost with the office network. So we had to reload/reinstall the software to get the pairing back. All in all, we spent about 4 hours setting up the scanner on 3 computers. I would recommend another machine or brand all together to try. We will probably keep it since we've invested the time to set it up and at this point not sure whether any other company has a better product. It does the job at the end and perhaps the USB direct connection works better on a single computer - but that is not our workflow here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time saver! I scan hundreds of documents a day. Often of different sizes. This handles everything. Just make sure carbon copies are separated. Attached papers trigger the multiple pages fed and stops the feed. I literally scanned over a thousand pages, put them in the correct folders in a couple of hours. I have now used it for roughly 3000 documents. Next comes photos.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terribly difficult to set up Good scanner, but quite persnickety in the set-up arena, in my experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional photo scanning A friend told me about this scanner and encouraged me to purchase one also. It scans photographs quickly and effortlessly. Once you get your settings set properly it makes scanning years of old photos a snap. It does not come with directions however, you have to download it online. No problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well with windows 10 I am very happy. Scans well and quickly and I am more efficient. I am getting more done and less time needed to do the work. Good choice- I really did not know which brand to get but this is a good machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it, until today I bought this in July 2018. It's great, except today (01/15/2020) I had to uninstall all the software and reinstall because although my computer could see the scanner, the program said it was busy or unavailable. Now it's working again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features I purchased the scanner 2 weeks ago. Compact, easy to scan. Two sided capability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs additional features Product works as advertised. Very fast scans. However the feature that is missing is a driver that allows capturing an email directly to the document management software, which is fairly basic. This feature appears in Neat software, which is much better than Epson's
