The Epson DS-410 is a great value for offices that need a fast and accurate document scanner, but don’t require it to be network-ready.
Designed for low-volume small to medium-size offices, the Epson DS-410 Document Scanner ($329) is a low-cost sheet-feed scanner. It’s comparable in features with our Editors’ Choice HP ScanJet Pro 3000 s3 Sheet-Feed Scanner, but it’s a little slower and costs $100 less. Feature- and price-wise, the DS-410 is a terrific value, but it’s up against formidable competition, including models that support networking and don’t cost much more. For offices that don’t require networking from a document scanner, though, the Epson DS-410 is a tough contender among entry-level desktop document scanners.
