    I bought this scanner primarily for document scanning, specifically to scan multiple documents into multipage pdf s. I was not disappointed.
    I m running a Mac Mini Power PC 1.25 Ghz, 512 megs RAM, OS 10.4.11. I was looking for a sheetfed scanner that would accommodate my OS and Mac platform. There aren t very many out there that do that, I found. (Update: In July 2010 I upgraded my Mac Mini to a new Mini with an Intel Core duo 2 processor running Snow Leopard and the software installed just fine on it too)
    The hardest part is waiting for the lengthy software installation. The disk automatically reads your system and disk space and installs what you need.
    After installing the software, I shut down my computer, connected the scanner to the AC adapter and USB cable connect to my Mac, and then re-booted my computer.
    Then I put a stack of 10 documents face up into the sheet feeder, and Turned on the scanner.
    Then I clicked the "Epson Scan" software, brief wait for software to open. Selected Black and White scanning at 150 dpi to pdf. (It also does grayscale and color, and other DPI s of course--I usually use 150 DPI/B&W for pdf documents because it cuts down on file size.)
    Clicked the "Scan" button on the software-- it sucked the documents through one-by-one in record time-- and 35 SECONDS LATER I was looking at the multi-page pdf of the 10 documents that it deposited nicely on my desktop.(188 kb for the 10-page file).
    The scans are *amazingly* fast--of course, you should understand that my previous scanner was a Canon Lido 100, which took about 35 seconds PER PAGE for B&W pdf documents.
    Do be advised that some of the software features don t work on my Mac. It won t scan to email, for instance. (not a problem for me)
    But just being able to scan medical documents quickly into a single pdf file was my goal and this machine really fills the bill for me.
    Another plus: you can put the 40 sheets in the feeder and scan it-- when it s done, the machine kindly asks you if you would like to add more pages to the file--so you can then re-fill the sheet feeder and keep on scanning in that manner until you get all of them into one single pdf file.
    Oh, BTW, later I scanned all 40 documents through the sheet feeder and they were all fed flawlessly into one file. This thing is gonna spoil me for sure!
    Today (April 26) I m scanning medical reports into multi-page pdf files and this scanner is still super! I m getting a very consistent 19-20pgs/min in B&W at 150 DPI, and on greyscale I m getting about 5 pgs/min. An 82-page grayscale file had 11.2 MB, which is still not bad for grayscale. A 122-page B&W file had 2.3 MB, which is very good.
    The sheetfeeder has so far worked almost flawlessly except for a few dog-eared pages that wouldn t go through without a little straightening. Other than that, total success. The real beauty is hearing those sheets go through without my having to do anything except re-fill the feeder. It s nearly impossible to re-fill the feeder while it s working--I ve tried to do it 3 times with only one success. Anything that disrupts paper flow for even an instant seems to hang up the sheet feeder. No problem, though, as I can wait until it finishes and then re-fill the feeder and select "add page" and it keeps right on a tickin .

    This is an expensive, dedicated document scanner, but don t worry if you want to scan photographs, too. Just choose the "Home" mode--or the "Professional" mode, if you are an advanced photo scanner--and you will find a very easy to use photo scanner box. There are a lot of choices you can choose from to do the type of scanning you need, and even more choices if you go to the "Professional" mode. The last time I scanned photos was many years ago with a terrific Canon photo scanner. But I fear the features of that Canon seem quite obsolete compared to this Epson. In fact, I can t imagine any dedicated photo scanner having more features than this one...except this scanner does not do negatives or slides. One of my favorite features of the photo scanning is the "Restore Color" feature. It really does do an excellent job of making older, faded photographs look newer. One 1940 s portrait, on matte type paper, that I scanned this weekend, surprised me to no end when I saw the finished scan. I just leave the "Restore Color" and "Remove Dust Specks" boxes checked all the time. There is also a "Fix Backlit Photos" feature and a "Descreening" feature. And the photos can be saved in various "jpeg" and "tiff" formats . . . more than I possibly can understand. That is my one complaint about this very nice scanner--I only wish Epson would have included a detailed paper manual, instead of having only an online manual. It s just not the same.

    This item was purchased for a home office use. The advertising says 20 ppm b&w. That may be possible if no two sheets of paper stick together but that is rare. After several weeks of use I have found that the only safe way to scan multiple page docs is to stand at the feeding tray and hold all sheets but the one on top to make sure that it draws every sheet in for scanning in order. To make this tedious task more simple I found that loading no more than 10 sheets at a time avoided errors in feeding. The software does provide the opportunity to "add pages" before saving so that you still can create one complete document in this fashion. The quality of the finished scan is excellent. I doubt that any inexpensive ADF would work differently so I would recommend this for light volume users.
