We previously reviewed the Epson DS-560 document scanner (read our review here). Never satisfied with the status quo, Epson has introduced two new document scanners, Epson WorkForce ES-400 and ES-500W that takes the features of the DS-510 and DS-560, and makes them even better.
Epson America, Inc., a leading provider of digital imaging solutions, today introduced two new home and office organization solutions – the WorkForce® ES-400 and ES-500W duplex document scanners.
The compact, yet powerful ES-400 and ES-500W scanners boast speeds up to 35 ppm/70 ipm1 and feature a 50-page auto document feeder (ADF) for fast scanning. Both models enable users to scan to online storage accounts2 including DropBox™, SharePoint®, Evernote®, Google Drive™ and more. In addition, the ES-500W includes wireless capabilities3 for scanning directly to smartphones, tablets or computers.
“The ES-400 and ES-500W are powerful organization solutions with a small footprint, perfect for both home and office environments,” said Heather Johnston, product manager, Scanners, Epson America. “With fast scanning speeds, the capability to scan files to a preferred online storage account or edit files with our bundled software, these scanners make it easy for users to cut down on clutter and organize their documents easily.”
More about the ES-400 and ES-500W
The new scanners include TWAIN drivers for simple integration with virtually any document management software, enabling businesses to save time and money by directly scanning files into their existing workflow.
The ES-400 and ES-500W make document organization quick and easy, with single-step duplex technology that scans both sides of virtually any paper, quickly turning paper documents into searchable and editable files with the included OCR software. For users requiring a versatile solution, both models offer Auto Document Size Detection, which enables scanning of virtually any size documents including business and ID cards, single sheets, receipts, extra-long pages and more. In addition, each scanner is equipped with Dynamic Skew Correction and Double Feed Detection, preventing missing pages and jams for accuracy and reliability.
In addition, the ES-400 and ES-500W utilize Epson Image Processing Technology for text and image enhancements such as auto crop, blank page and background removal. Both models are also equipped with a robust software package including Epson Document Capture, ABBYY® FineReader and NewSoft® Presto! Bizcard®. The ES-400 and ES-500W can be connected to the network with an additional purchase of Epson’s Network Interface Unit (optional).
