"Great Scanner. Very short life."2.0 starson by 1955desertcat
Pros: Great and fast scanner and good bundled software, but its interface is somewhat rigid and limiting. My $80 Canon (no ADF)interface is many times over more user friendly than the Epson's.
Cons: It dies before 15 months. One worked hard and lasted 13 months. We replaced it with the same model. The cost had gone up almost 50% on most sites. It died after 14 months. No guarantee available. Poorly designed single roller invites skew feeding.
Summary: Is it designed to die?
