Epson DS-970 Workforce – Review
Epson DS-970 Workforce – Review

The fastest scanner on earth, handling 9000 documents a day!

Often I visit storage rooms which are full head-to-toe with boxes of documents, especially in universities, which are crying out to be copied and kept safe on a hard drive or in the cloud. However, with so vast documents comes vast work and an unimaginable amount of hours.

This is where theEpson Workforce DS-970 comes into play. You can plow through with 100 sheets automatically at a time! Whilst it accepts versatile paper sizes that range from business cards to long documents (8.5″ x 240″). Not only that, it can scan folded documents.

The DS-970 includes advanced paper feed technology, such as Ultrasonic Double-feed Detection, Slow Speed Mode (for delicate sheets) and Paper Protection (to prevent misfeeds). The scanner is compatible with any PC or Mac. Bundled software includes Epson Scan 2, EMC Captiva, and Document Capture Pro.

Users can scan files to searchable PDFs and editable Word and Excel with the built-in OCR software; they can also scan to various cloud storage accounts, such as Evernote, Google Drive, and SharePoint. Epson also offers an optional Flatbed Dock for connecting the DS-970 to a compatible Epson photo scanner.

There’s also three-year limited warranty with an Advanced Exchange Program that includes next business-day replacement. Not that you’ll ever need it, this is Epson after all, they lead in technology and build quality when it comes to hardware.
