    I bought the Epson GT-S50 because my Fujitsu ScanSnap S510 developed a problem, was out of warranty, and would have been ridiculously expensive to repair. The ScanSnap S510 was discontinued and has been replaced by the S1500 which I m not certain is an improvement over the S510, so I purchased the Epson GT-S50.

    I am very disappointed with the performance of the Epson scanner - at least in comparison to the Fujitsu scanner. The scanner itself seems to function very well from a hardware standpoint - no misfeeds, etc., but the document processing speed is horrible. I used the Epson Scan software to scan a 300-page, standard-size document. I told it to scan duplex, auto, 300 dpi, no OCR detection, no conversion, no enhancement - just a plain, simple scan. The scanner has a 75-page feeder limit, so I scanned 4 individual batches of pages. It took just over an hour to scan the entire book. The scanner was frequently stopped because it was waiting for the software, and when all the pages from each batch were finally scanned, it still took another 5 minutes to finish processing that batch.

    There are those who might say that is pretty fast compared to other scanners, but it is insanely slow compared to the Fujitsu. I have scanned many 500-page documents with the Fujitsu in about 20 minutes each. I checked all the settings, read the entire manual, looked online in the forums, and I do not have any settings wrong. Apparently, that s how it works.

    I also tried scanning directly into Paperport using the Twain driver. Again, the scanner functioned very well from a hardware standpoint, but it was very, very slow. I was scanning receipts (one by one) as I have done thousands of times with the Fujitsu. Every time I inserted a new receipt to be scanned, it took 25 seconds to initiate the scan. The scan, of course, was extremely fast and was saved in Paperport, etc.. But 25 seconds to initiate every receipt is ridiculous!

    I spent almost 8 hours trying to get this scanner/software to operate efficiently, and I ve come to the conclusion that this is the nature of the beast. I am returning it tomorrow and looking for a used or refurbished ScanSnap S510.

    My new Epson Workforce GT-S50 arrived last week. As soon as I set up the scanner, it had an E-1 paper jam error. I had never run paper thru the machine, but I still checked the paper path and found no evidence of any paper.

    Epson support, after trying a few things, said the machine was defective. He said Epson does not replace defective scanners. The only option I had was to send the scanner to a repair place AT MY EXPENSE to have it repaired.
    Very poor policy.

    On the very positive side:
    I purchased thru Amazon, and I am able to return the scanner for a refund (and Amazon paid the shipping). I am glad to know that Amazon will stand behind the products they sell!

    Upon receipt this scanner was promptly put to work scanning approximately 22,000 pages of hardcopy projects files. The scan speed exceeded our paper handling speed (removing staples, fixing tears, etc.) Was very pleased with throughput. There were very few jams and most were caused by missed staples or thermal printing paper. Both the scanner and software handled varied sizes and types of papers in a single scan job and overall scan quality was good. Software could be improved by inclusion of optical character recognition at scan time.
