    I purchased the GT-S80 to replace my 1st generation Mac compatible Scansnap (fi-5110EOXM). I wanted a faster scanner (40 PPM vs 15) with better paper handling (less misfeeds according to at least one review comparing GT-S50 to Scansnap elsewhere.)
    I used the GT-S80 for less than a day and returned it to Amazon. Here are the reasons why:
    1. Speed. Even though the GT-S80 is rated at 40 ppm, when I load paper to scan and push the scan button, it would take about 15-20 seconds for the Epson utility that handles the scanning to activate and for the scan job to actually begin. Several sheets would feed quickly, then there would be a pause (several seconds) while the 5 or 6 sheets that had fed were being processed. Please note, I am using a 2009 Mac Pro 8 core 2.66 GHz Nehalem Xeon machine with 16GB of RAM. It s not a sluggish machine. The combination of the delay in starting and the pause each 5-6 pages significantly decreased any speed advantage the GT-S80 may theoretically possess.
    2. Page misfeeds. My scans often consist of regular laser paper interspersed with thinner "NCR" pressure sensitive paper. The GT-S80 double fed these as often as my old Scansnap. Not only did it misfeed, even when I tried to turn on the ultrasonic double feed detection, the Epson would not detect double fed sheets.
    3. LCD display on scanner doesn t show actual scan settings when used with Macintosh. When used with Windows PC s, the Epson GT-S80 will show the scan settings from the LCD display (resolution, simplex/duplex, etc), allowing the user to choose the job setting desired. On Mac, only JOB1, JOB2, JOB3...etc. are shown.
    4. Confusing EpsonScan utilities. I also have an Epson V600 flatbed scanner (great scanner!) The Epson Scan utility that is compatible with the V600 is a different version than the one that is compatible with the GT-S80, although they look similar. Neither will recognize the other scanner. This is a bit counter intuitive. Of course, this isn t a problem if you don t use Epson Scan to do your scanning (using TWAIN or another scan utility.)
    Anyway, I ended up returning the scanner to Amazon and bought a Scansnap S1500M, which I am much happier with than the GT-S80.

    I do not often give feedback on products but in this case I must. I bought this scanner based on the reviews I read and expected greatness.....
    It exceeded my expectations.

    FIRST: This scanner is lighting FAST! There is no comparison between this scanner and a Multifunction scanner. This scanner scans so fast that you really do not believe it actually scanned until you see the scanned document on your computer. It also scans both sides at once - so if you are doing duplex scanning - there is no delay in scan time for scanning both sides.

    SECOND: It is exceptionally easy to set up and to use. I had it up and running in less than 5 mins. and have scanned hundreds of documents already.

    THIRD: It is feature rich. (a) It allows you to scan to pdf (and other formats but I mainly use pdf) in several quality modes, many formats (color gray scale....)...., (b) you can program the keys on the scanner so you do not have to scan via the computer and you can essentially set up one button scan capability, (c) It comes with OCR (d) you can do different levels of OCR / and scan processing. You can the OCR and document processing vs. speed settings to your liking...,

    I cannot think of any feature they left out.

    NUANCES: (a) It takes a second or two to communicate to with the computer to start each scan. It would be better if the scan setup was stored on the scanner so that the scan would start instantly after hitting the "SCAN" button. (b) the document storing and processing is done on the computer and it holds the scanner while this is done. So you have to wait for the computer to finish processing until you can scan again. It would be great if this had more internal memory so that it did not have to wait for the computer after scanning. For the price they should have included a few Gig of RAM to store the documents locally. If it had USB 3.0 that might improve things quite a bit. This could be a show stopper for many. But I have independent OCR software and to "independent post processing" most of the time. (c) The "Event Manager" allows you to set up 10 separate job settings on the scanner but they cannot be configured as completely as the SCAN interface software .... sometimes it is easier to just use the SCAN Interface Software. (d) It is not possible to rotate the 2nd page of a duplex scan. So if you have a landscape binder every other page will scan upside down. (e) a bit pricey


    BUT ALL IN ALL - THIS IS A GREAT SCANNER. IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO A GOOD AMOUNT OF SCANNING - IT IS WELL WORTH THE PRICE!

    I purchased this scanner after much research. I had long been a fan of Epson products and had found them to be of good quality with excellent tech support. The scanner that I received was apparently defective and when I called Epson, I reached someone who appeared to be an outsourced tech limited to the information that she could read from a script. She was rude and insisted that it was not an issue with the scanner...that it isn t possible for the scanner equipment to be defective. I reached no resolution with her. I contacted Epson with my concerns, but received no response. Fortunately for me, the store where I purchased the scanner was very accomodating and we arranged for a return/replacement. The machine that replaced the original DOES WORK, consequently confirming that it was NOT a software issue. Epson...what happened to your formerly excellent technical service? As for the machine itself, the replacement feeds well and the image is of decent quality.
