Customer Reviews of Epson WorkForce GT-1500 Flatbed Color Document Imaging Scanner with 1200 x 2400 dpi Resolution
Great product and easy to use. Great software package.
The Epson WorkForce GT-1500 scanner is more than I expected. I have had it about a month and I used it to scan about 600 pages daily without any problems. I highly recommend it.
Great scanner with all the scanning software.
We had a xerox document scanner previous to this but it kept jamming and failing. So far this seems much more robust & of a higher quality.
A bargain on a very good scanner4/3/2012
I had no trouble setting up this scanner, and it performs very well. My only complaint, and a very minor one at that, is that changing default scan settings of the buttons is not a simple and obvious, on-the-fly type of change, as it is with some other software. Rest assured, you can get the scans to come out in any supported format you want, and you can save those settings to the buttons. Anyway, I am very happy with the purchase.
Great budget scanner!3/28/2012
I purchased this for use at my office desk so I don't have to walk over to the large industrial scanner for quick scans. The scanner is extremely easy to use and the quality was much better than I was expecting. I read concerns about the LED light source, but everything I've scanned has come out bright and vibrant. I am extremely happy to have purchased this item, and since it was refurbished, it was an extra fantastic deal!
I have been really satisfied with this scanner. It scans really quickly. The image quality is good also. It was really easy to setup. I unpacked it and was scanning a big pile of documents that I need in a matter of minutes. The size is fairly compact. Definitely recommended.
opened it, inserted the CD into my Mac Quicksilver G4 Dual 1GHz, spent the next 6 minutes installing unbelievable amounts of software (been a while since I owned an Epson, I guess I forgot how much there is, though I believe my HP stuff is bloated too) and removing unbelievable amounts of green immobilizing tape. It's light, as I expected. Connection was a cinch, and the software recognized immediately. In the OFFICE MODE, it took one document, a stack of 12 of various types (B&W & Color text, picture, and text with pictures), and scanning was very fast - I didn't measure it but less than 8-seconds per sheet. The scans themselves looked perfect. I tried scanning photographs, and as long as they were the same size and thickness, no problem. It "ate" a stack of various sized photos all at once (no damage, just couldn't take one-at-a-time) In the HOME MODE, I put various collections of photos on the flat bed and scanned them. Again, very fast... 5-seconds or so. I did run into a glitch, but it was my error. I attempted to scan three old photos and correct their Color & Back Lighting. The scan froze every try. I then remembered, ALWAYS REPAIR DISK PERMISSIONS AFTER INSTALLING NEW SOFTWARE!!! Once that was complete, scans fast and correction is good. I will now start scanning all of our photos... This is the best flatbed scanner I've used...
I love this Epson Scanner!3/13/2012
Received this scanner in fast order. Unboxed it and went to work without a hitch. Very easy to use and scans great documents.
All I Hoped For8/12/2011
Was concerned when I read several reviews complaining about the time it took to process PDF files. Bought anyway. Glad I did. The speed of creating the files apparently is a function of the computer attached. The faster the computer, the faster the files are finished. I just scanned 400+ pages and figured I'd have a long wait while it crunched the files. Wrong. Only complaint is that the user manual is very rudimentary and does not go beyond what one can intuitively learn by playing with the scanner and software. For example, manually copying and collating two sided documents is a snap using the Edit software. Didn't see this in the manual. Caveat: I have not tried to create OCR files yet.
Great scanner. The ADF works perfectly. Resolution is decent for PDF files. Real workhorse.
mediocre scanner with horrible software4/21/2010
I can't believe how bad the interface is with this scanner...I'm sending it back. Hardware is WAY slower then advertised, especially if you count the minutes it takes to convert one page to a PDF...should be instant. Multiple mouse clicks and button presses to do a scan. No way to change the default destination folder away from "My Photos" (you can change it in 6 mouse clicks, but it resets for every scan...no way to change the default) DON'T BUY THIS!
A good buy4/4/2009
Used for Real Estate and does exactly what I need it to do. Sheet feeder is effortless to use and quick. The software is easy to follow and navigate without any need to read the manual. Overall a great buy.
I'm off HP scanners, this one has it all3/11/2009
I've been an HP scanjet user since my first scanner. this epson has a sheet feeder that works very well. The speed of the scan is much better than I was used to and the OCR packaged with the scanner is all you need. You can scan, unattended, to a pdf, a graphic, or Word file. I hardly use the flatbed but if you need it it's easy to flip up the page feeded, nice it's on a hinge and not hard to get out of the way. Used on a Winxp Pro machine, it's a keeper.
I LOVE IT!1/30/2009
This machine is incredible! It takes documents that you wouldn't think would go through an automatic feed because they have wrinkles in them flawlessly. It does everything great, including photographs. Don't worry about the price, it's worth twice that! I'm a very critical person, so for me to even like something is a big deal, and I LOVE this machine!
user extremely satisfied10/8/2008
