Epson’s DS-30000 Large-Format Document Scanner ($2,499) is a high-volume desktop document scanner designed for use in large offices and workgroups. Like the Xerox DocuMate 6710 reviewed here in January 2019, the DS-30000 scans up to tabloid-size (11-by-17-inch) documents, compared to the average document scanner’s letter- and legal-size limitations. A huge difference between the DS-30000 and the DocuMate is that the latter is a large, ultra-high-volume machine that looks more like a laser printer than a scanner. It lists for close to three times more than the DS-30000, which, as a desktop document scanner, has extendable trays front and back that fold up out of the way when not in use. The first wide-format desktop document scanner I know of, the Epson is fast and accurate, and in a few ways much more versatile than the DocuMate 6710, not to mention much more affordable. That’s more than enough to earn our Editors’ Choice nod for high-volume, large-format desktop document scanners.
