    Incredibly Compact, Versatile, Portable Scanner

    This is a review for the Epson ES-200 Portable Duplex Scanner that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. I would also like to say that I am a bit technologically challenged when it comes to putting things together and setting up new items!! but this machine really did impress me!! This is so small, weighs only a couple of pounds, works on AC power or a computer's USB 3.0 power (including a powered USB 3.0 hub), and scans business cards, receipts, and documents incredibly fast! The only complaint I have is that I would like the USB cable to be a bit longer, it is only 3 feet so I may end up buying an additional one. But I love that It is so light and portable!! It works with both PCs and Macs, scans two-sided documents in a single pass, and it will auto-feed long, thin grocery-store receipts of varying lengths. This little scanner so perfect !! it will scan (and auto-feed) documents of many widths and weights, and business and plastic cards of different weights (as long as the documents and cards fall within certain specified limits).It did take me a little practice to master the feeder, but document jams are easy to clear. (You turn the power off, pull up a horizontal guide, and lift the document out.) IT was easy to set up ( since I happen to be technologically challenged and even I managed to do it myself!!) You can easily scan to online storage accounts and rid your home or office of so much extra paperwork!! Talk about organizing!!! WOW!! This scanner comes with the same software as some bigger, non-portable Epson scanners. I felt I had to familiarize myself with the User Manual before trying to scan anything. The settings are a little confusing since there are so many choices and it did take me some time a while to figure out how to set the destinations for my scanned files. But as I said, I am not really good with these things.. But I was able to do it!! So if you are a bit knowledgeble about these things it will be a breeze for you! And just remember... be sure to download and install the installation software BEFORE you plug in the scanner! Which is, again.... easy to install!! Now I feel that I can get rid of my big, ugly space using printer with it's built in scanner and get a nice, compact portable printer to go along with my nice, compact portable scanner!! What a pleasure!!! I really am happy with this!!

    Perfect for On-The-Go People

    This is a review for the Epson ES-200 Portable Duplex Document Scanner that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. When I first received the scanner I was amazed at how compact it was. I was going to hook it up to my desktop but there is no room on my desk so I took it to my Windows Tablet/Laptop to hook it up there. In the box you get the scanner, the AC adapter, USB cord and step by step instructions. Everything you need to just plug and go. The instructions are pretty clear. You first have to download the software. Then you have to connect the scanner and poof! It was connected. This scanner is so quick! I had tons of fun just seeing what I could scan and how fast it scans. The scanner can hold up to 20 pages and auto-feeds them through one at a time. This is great for people who have presentations that need to be scanned and emailed to other people. My son who is in college was asking about a scanner the other day. (If my husband doesn't keep this one I'm pretty sure my son will get it.) One of the features on the scanner is that you can power it with the AC adapter or the USB cord. This is helpful for those people on the go that just want to keep up with one power cord. It is also a great feature for people working with this scanner at a desktop. You're computer is always plugged in so you can power the scanner through it's USB connection. You can also adjust the settings by the push of a slider to scan credit cards or business cards so you can keep everything together and stay organized. There are sliders in the middle to adjust do different paper sizes so if you want to scan an envelope, or a picture you don't have to worry if it will come out twisted in the image. These sliders hold the item in place to help keep it straight. One thing I didn't like about this scanner is that there is no where to tell you what the buttons on the top do. I knew because I have an Epson printer with the same buttons. The first button is the power button, then there is what looks like another button, but you can't push it, this one seems to let you know if the document isn't in correctly or something to that effect. The third button is the Cancel button and the fourth is the scan button. Overall this is a great little scanner and one I am happy to have in my electronics line up!

    I am not sure if your like me but I tend to get a lot of mail in my mailbox containing things like bills and just useful information about other things. I was the person that always felt the need to hold onto this information in filing cabinets and such, but what this did was cause an overflow of paperwork that I would have to go into and remove every few months. Now that I have this scanner this has solved alot of the headaches I have had about the safe keeping of my documents and also space issues that I was dealing with before. So quick note before I go into further detail on how I actually use this device, the setup was very straightforward and easy to do. The instructions are all laid out and easy to read. One thing to note is that it doesn't come with the latest driver so you will have to download it at some point. Also recommend doing the updates once downloaded so that you can get some of the option software choices that they offer. Not having a driver in the box I feel will be the biggest annoyance with the setup that people may have. As for the size of the device it fits perfectly on my desk and takes up virtually no space at all. This allows me to have a monochrome laser printer and a self contained scanner instead of one giant bulky unit. Now that I had it setup, I started using the scanner software to input my information into my computer. One tip of advice when scanning in your documents have them pre divided up into the groups that you want. When you use the software you will notice that you choose the output of where to put the documents when your done. I have opted for saving all my documents locally on an encrypted drive and also backed up on a flash drive that can be stored in a fireproof safe as well. This gives me double protection of not losing the items that have been scanned so that I can shred the actual paperwork and not have to hold onto it anymore. Now this is a review for the Epson ES-200 Portable Duplex Document Scanner that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. I have to say even though I did a beta test on it I would still be inclined in purchasing another one for my actual office setting as well.

    Great scanner for the desk and on the go

    If you want to see the scanner in action check out this demo video I put together: https://youtu.be/yX5_ZLXQgGI For the size of the scanner, I am super impressed by the speed and quality with which it scans documents. The only bad thing that I can say about it is that the software is a little clunky, but once you get used to it the software is handy. It comes with a bunch of different programs and drivers but the two useful ones that you should know about are document capture and FineReader Sprint. Document capture is basic you press the scan button and it scans the documents on the scanner, then it has some easy to use tools that let you rotate and rearrange pages (the clunky part of the software is when you go to the save dialog using a mac it feels outdated, but once you figure it out it’s just a minor nuisance). The FineReader Sprint software that comes bundled with the scanner is more full featured and can convert documents not only into a searchable pdf but also into a word excel or HTML file. Having it create a searchable pdf is super useful because then you can find things easily in the document and anyone that you send your pdf’s to will be able to go through the document more easily. (Protip: The FineReader Sprint program can also take pdf files from your computer and turn them into other kinds of files or make them searchable.) The hardware of the scanner is nothing short of amazing, it is super small but folds out do have a document feeder that is the size of much larger scanners. In the box, you get the scanner itself, a USB cable and a power cable. In the instructions, it says that the scanner can be powered using just your computers USB port so I just did that because why would you want to plug in the AC adapter if you don’t have to. When I started scanning, it was kind of slow, the pages fed at an ok speed and there was a couple second pause between pages. For a small scanner, I thought this was an acceptable speed but it wasn’t anything impressive. Then on a whim, I plugged in the power cable and scanned a document. WOW, it goes so fast, I guess it can’t power the motors fully using just your computers USB power but once you plug it in it shoots through documents. I’ve only had it jam once and it was because I loaded the documents wrong. I’m very impressed by how it takes in the documents and doesn’t take too many at a time or get them misaligned. Overall I would recommend this scanner to anyone who is looking for a small scanner for their desk, or a scanner to take with them on the go!

    Great portable scanner for those on the Go

    Posted
    MobileBob

    The ES-200 is small and compact, but a little on the heavy side. It’s portable, but not pocketable. The scanner feels very well made, solid and durable. Out of the box it felt worth the cost just in it’s build quality. The directions are a little hard to follow so read carefully. The software download was painless (Make sure to download the correct application from the manual). After it was installed an update window came up and downloaded all other needed software. The ES-200 is very fast (when plugged into the wall) and produces great scans. I love that they added the option of powering it over USB on the go, but if you plug it in, the scan speed doubles. Auto feed works really well, but you do have to be careful to stagger the sheets a little so that the back sheet is the first to touch the feed rollers. I also quickly found that if I rolled the paper long ways to remove any folds, things went much smoother. The software is a huge win! Document capture pro is really great. It’s ability to setup profiles for batch jobs made scanning large stacks of paper easy. I have four major batch jobs setup, one that scans multiple sheets, 1 sheet (single sided) per file. This allows me to put in a ton of sheets that don’t have anything to do with each other and scan them all at once. Another profile that does the same but is double sided. Then two profiles that scan all the sheets into one file, single and double sided respectively. I was able to go through 100 sheets in an hour, something that would have taken me many hours on all the previous scanners I have used (Most of that time spent just getting all the paper arranged to feed into the scanner). Also the connections to online services is just icing on the cake! I store all my files in google drive, but previously had to save locally then “sync” to Google Drive. Now after setting up the destination to google drive it’s simple to scan everything knowing it was going directly to my Google Drive without having to wait for a sync to occur. In the end this scanner is worth every penny, it’s portable, and solid. I would suggest this to anyone who needs a scanner on a regular basis and has a moving work space. This will do the job and do it well. “This is a review for the Epson ES-200 Portable Duplex Document Scanner that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”

    Full featured scanner in a portable package

    This is a review for the Epson ES-200 Portable Duplex Document Scanner that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. The scanner is a full featured unit in a moderately small package, designed to be taken on the go. One big plus of the unit is that it can scan both sides of a page with only one feed through the scanner. It will scan in color at up to 1200dpi. There is a feature to automatically correct document skew and to skip blank pages. You can output image files, PDF documents, Multi-page TIFF files, or several Office document formats such as Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. PDF documents can be made searchable during the scan with the built in OCR capabilities. Just insert the stack of documents into the feeder and use the provided software to initiate the scan. I created a profile in the software to send my scans directly to a folder in Evernote, and I then organize the documents from that software. You can also have files go to a folder, e-mail, FTP, directly to a printer (like a copier), to a Web folder, Microsoft SharePoint, OneNote, Google Drive, SugarSync, or a custom application. The scanner has a seperate area which allows both sides of business cards to be scanned easily. This device has a lot of features in a small space. Although it comes with an included power adapter, I find that the USB 3.0 port on my laptop provides enough power to use the device with just the USB connection. Despite the great design of this unit, there are a few drawbacks you should be aware of. First, you must download the software for the device from the internet -- make sure you download it and install it before you take the device with you in case you do not have internet access. Documents must be inserted into the scanner face down. This is different from many scanners I am used to, however I expect this was required to make the scanner be able to scan both sides of a page at a time and the pages remain in order. The device is a little heavy, about 3 pounds by my estimation. It does not have a carry case, so make sure to store it in a bag where it will not get damaged during travel. The device is somewhat expensive. If you do not need a scanner which is also portable, and have plenty of space, the money you would spend on this device might be better spent on a all-in-one printer/scanner.

    Great for the Functions and Capabilities

    I received this Epson ES-200 in about a week ago. Upon opening, the packaging is adequate and supports the item. I went to then hook up the item to my computer to begin use. This was something that was a little different from me. Normally when you order something like a printer it comes with the drivers and programs on a disc in the packaging. That is not the case with this scanner. I had to go to a website to download the software and drivers. So if you do not have the internet available at your location, I can only assume that you can call Epson and they will send you one, or that this item does not work for you. Once I was able to get the drivers to download, the installation of the drivers and program was difficult. It took 3 attempts to get it to install. The first time it went to 13% and then stopped and wouldn’t go any further. The second time it went to 99% and then again stopped and wouldn’t continue install. On the third attempt I had to uncheck some boxes in the startup screen before install and then it finally went through the entire installation process. Using the scanner was a breeze. You simply put the document in and hit the scan button on the program and the scanner starts. It is so much quieter than a normal machine scanner/printer/copier. That is a big plus for me. Especially when I use it at home with a toddler, which makes him not want to touch and play with it and again for use at work it isn’t a disruption. There are a few problems I have had with it. There is a printing option, but when I try to print I get an error message “The printer driver is not available”. I also wish there was an option to save as something other than pdf. There are also many great features to the program. You can rotate the document, send via email, add pages that were left out, remove pages. So many more. It is also a double sided scanner. This is a review for the Epson ES-200 Portable Duplex Document Scanner that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Easy and Portable Scanner

    Power264

    This is a review for the Epson ES-200 Portable Duplex Document Scanner that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. I was excited to get my scanner but very surprised it was shipped with no outer box. It came directly in the product box. The scanner is small and compact which is perfect since space is a commodity in my home and at my client locations. Everything I needed was in the box. I did have to download some software but that process was easy and painless. I did find the directions a little confusing and had to reread them a couple of times. There are two options to power the scanner. There is a USB cable that can be directly plugged into your computer or laptop or the standard plug into an outlet option. I have a small similar scanner for work and my only option is to plug directly into my laptop. My husband was excited that he could scan in business cards. He is in sales and is always dealing with lots of business cards he would like to keep. This printer allows us to scan those in and organize them in a helpful fashion. There are sliders on the scanner that accommodate various size documents and cards. I wanted to de-clutter and de-paper all those stacks of statements, taxes, etc., that I have. This scanner easily scans multiple pages. There are various options that I am still playing around with such as double sided. I did notice some of the pages catch when feeding but removing them and placing them back in place easily corrected any misfeeds. I also had this problem with my work scanner so I think it is an inherent limitation in such a small and compact device. I was surprised to find the speed increased when plugged into wall. I would recommend this to family, friends or even coworkers. However, the price is not as competitive as it could be to make it more appealing to a wider variety of consumers.
