Rated 5 out of 5 byDale83 from Meets all my needs!I bought this scanner specifically because of my disability. Other scanners require lifting your arms higher to place the paper in to be scanned. This scanner is ideal. No reaching! It does everything, and does it well.

Rated 5 out of 5 bySueCo from FeederFor the money this one is not worth it. Used it 4 months and the feeder was broke. It was in warranty so they sent me a refurbished one after they received mine back. Just outside of one year and the refurbished one has only been used for 4 months. The feeder is broke again. I only use it 4 months out of the year and fairly moderate volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 byRiver bill from horrible scannerThe automatic document feeder (ADF) has a thin clear plastic sheet just above the platen glass. When paper goes through the ADF, the paper rides above the plastic sheet. After a few weeks of use, the plastic is noticeably scratched to the point where I cannot scan using the ADF without getting a vertical line running the full length of pages. The user manual recommends only cleaning with a dry cloth. That does not help with scratches. I can still use the scanner, but only if I don't use the ADF. Also, the background color of the ADF is grey. If you scan paper that is narrower than the setting for paper width, then the electronic scan will have a grey line on each side of the page. These lines will appear black if you are scanning using the black and white setting. It is an old cliche, but the best use for the scanner I bought is a door stop.

Rated 5 out of 5 byAzyA from Doesnt deliver to the promisesBought it 1 month ago .. always had issues with connecting to computer on its own.. need to restart all the time for it to recognize scanner correctly. Dbl sided scan is a challenge too for this scanner .. can be a good buy if kinks with archaic software are fixed..

Rated 5 out of 5 byLBrost from I'm still not sureI've been using this for about a month now and I'm not 100% happy with the flatbed scanner. The feeder works great and is the main reason that I purchased the item. The flatbed is a different story. It's not as easy to use as the previous Epson scanners that I've had.

Rated 5 out of 5 byMaxwell Edison from Pleased with quality and performanceBought scanner about 1-2 mos. ago, haven't had one since upgrade to Windows 10. The my very reliable see thru flatbed no longer worked. Seemed everyone was making all-in-ones which I didn't want. Finally the DS-1630 came out and got tired of taking things to work and the library to make copies. At first didn't want the ADF but it lets me scan 8 1/2 x 14 documents which the flatbed won't. Fast enough for home use, haven't scanned any pics yet so don't know how they will turn out. But had an Epson Perfection years ago which worked well and expect the same. Bought it from Epson's webpage, very fast shipping but came FedEx with a hole in the box like another box corner had made the hole. Overall, seems to be worth what I paid for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 byNetZen from Lacks basic featuresThe DS-1630 Work Force does not give you the option the select photo mode and you cannot manually crop the desired area of scanning in the preview plane. I spent hours and hours searching the web for a solution and at the same time it was impossible to write an email message to Epson.
