Document Scanning is a Breeze with the New Epson DS-560

Hi Folks,
   I am the bringer of some more great technical news, since the good people over at Epson have asked me to review their Document Scanners, the DS-560 and the DS-520. Today, we will be discussing the powerhouse DS-560, and I hope this will assist you in your decision-making process.

   Let me start out here by being totally honest: I've set up document scanners before, but I've never used a document scanner before, specifically, however I've used the scan functionality on different printers and all-in-one-units. I am a tech at heart, so this was destined to be a fun review!

   OK, so, in setting up the new Epson DS-560, for starters and for tech geeks like me, we like to see the tech specs, or technical specifications. For the sake of flowing forward, however, I will save the details section for the very end.

   Right out of the box, this machine is ready for action, with a 50-page automatic document feeder that is built with strength and flexibility. In the past, with other manufacturers, I've had issues connecting the document feeder and getting that set up from the start, but Epson makes it pretty simple and everything connects perfectly well with no margin of error nor second-guessing the steps.

   Now, one of the coolest features for me, personally, because I'm always on the road is that you can remotely scan by attaching to the printers address, and you need to download a simple Epson App. I did a little research in advance just to see what I was going to be facing, and I heard a few people saying they had some small difficulties in attaching the scanner to the network. However, in terms of my experience with the DS-560, it was seamless and I had no issues whatsoever I had everything up and running within a few moments.

   I mean it's really quite simple, the whole concept of what this machine does and the fact that Epson has it down to a science now. You literally press a button on your device, whether it's an Apple iPad or your Android, whatever it may be, they broke it down so it is so simple.

   Simply testing the device, you can see how powerful it is, and you can do the math and realize that it will satisfy an office of multiple people working within that office and will certainly meet their document scanning needs.

   I think the most important concept here is that they isolated the scan functionality into one device vs. having it included in an all-in-one device, when some offices may only require having a high speed scanner, such as the DS-560. This scanner should help you to solidify their decision of which device to buy, as it will easily help you meet your productivity requirements.

   In the coming days, I will also be reviewing the Epson DS-520, and I look forward to just as seamless and just as an amazing experience testing and reviewing that model as I did with the DS-560.
