Performance

I am using my GT-S50 to scan invoices, receipts and documents of various sizes. I have loaded 60 sheets in the feeder mechanism and found that it doesn't jam or misfeed. The feeder works best with 20 lb. or heavier paper but exhibits a slight tendency to skew lighter papers. Since I use this scanner with several TWAIN compliant applications, TWAIN support is very important to me (avoided comparable Fujitsu models for this reason). The TWAIN interface is feature-rich and WIA driver support is also included. While I don't usually start scans from the scanner front panel, the Epson Scan application allows you to define names for scan configurations which appear on the 2-line LCD display on the front panel. The hardware is very durable and well designed. Access to the feed rollers and image sensors is simplfied by the clamshell design of the chassis. A pushbutton latch opens the shell and the entire paper path is visible and easily cleaned. When not in use, the top paper guide is hinged and folds down to cover the paper path and control panel, keeping dust out. All things considered, the GT-S50 gives the best in performance, design and durability of anything in this price category. To round out my setup, I also got an Epson V500 PHOTO for scanning pictures and bound material. I share both scanners on my home network with a Belkin Network USB Hub (F5L0009). I find this works very well and saves wear and tear resulting from frequent moving/recabling of the scanners.

Great Scanner

on 3/19/2009

I purchased this scanner to help clean up our office files. I have used it for about a month and have enjoyed the quick scanning job it performs. The scan editable text feature has saved me days of retyping old documents. I would recommend this product to anyone. Read More

Product Features

The WorkForce Pro GT-S50 document image scanner offers an amazing value with its remarkable reliability, powerful performance and easy-to-use features. With a daily duty cycle of up to 1200 sheets, plus a 75-page feeder, it’s ready to tackle any task in busy office environments. Scan everything from business cards to rigid ID cards and documents up to 8.5x36.

The GT-S50 easily scans both sides of one sheet in just one pass — in color, grayscale or bi-tonal. It’s never been easier to electronically capture critical documents. Whether you need a faster way to access shared documents, a more affordable way to comply with government mandates or a better way to maintain the integrity of important documents, the GT-S50 is the perfect place to start.

Designed by Epson, a leader in digital imaging, the GT-S50 offers robust paper handling capabilities and quality you can depend on — all from a compact, desktop scanner.

The Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 features 10 user-definable scan jobs displayed on 2 line x 16 character LCD.
The Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50’s versatile automatic document feeder can scan documents, business cards and plastic ID cards.

User-definable scan jobs with LCD display

The Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 features 10 user-definable scan jobs for easy one-touch scanning including Scan to PDF. The Epson Event Manager software allows you to create customized scan jobs specifying resolution, file output type, image type and whether an image is saved to a file or launched into another application.

Unlike other scanners where scan jobs are displayed only as a number, the WorkForce Pro GT-S50’s 2 line x 16 character LCD displays scan jobs with job titles and settings making it easy to choose and start a scan.

Compatibility and integration with document management applications

In order to fit into any document management environment, the Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 both Epson Scan TWAIN and EMC Captiva ISIS drivers for compatibility with key document management standards and software applications. The WorkForce Pro GT-S50 has also been certified by Kofax, a leader in document imaging software.

Versatile high-speed scanning

The Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 features a 75-page automatic document feeder capable of scan speeds up to 25 ppm simplex, 50 ipm duplex (200 dpi, A4-size, Speed Priority scanning mode). With its dual CCD sensors, the WorkForce Pro GT-S50 is able to scan both sides of a sheet in just one pass.

The ADF can accommodate documents up to 8.5x36 inches including stacks of mixed sizes that can be automatically recognized and cropped. Adding to the versatility, the GT-S50 can scan business cards directly into the included NewSoft™ Presto!® BizCard software

The ADF can also scan plastic, embossed and rigid ID cards, capturing both sides of the card in a single pass. With the included carrier sheet, the GT-S50 can also scan receipts and other small or fragile documents.

The WorkForce Pro GT-S50 offers a host of features in a compact, desktop scanner.

Epson Imaging Technologies
